(A) 1

(B) 2

(C) 3

(D) 4

Solution:

(D) 4

Explanation: We know that,

Smallest prime number = 2

Smallest composite number = 4

LCM (2,4) = 4

Question 2.

√2 – √B is

(A) Rational Number

(B) Integer

(C) Irrational Number

(D) None of these

Solution:

(C) Irrational Number

Explanation: We know that J2 and J3_ both are irrational numbers and Difference of two irrational number is always irrational.

Question 3.

If one zero of the quadratic polynomial x^{2} + 3x + k is 2, then the value of k is

(A) 10

(B) -10

(C) 5

(D) -5

Solution:

(B) -10

Explanation Let p(x) = x^{2} + 3x + k

∴ p(2) = (2)^{2} + 3(2) + k

2 is a zero of the polynomial p(x).

p(2) = 0

ie., 4 + 6 + k= 0

⇒ k = -10

Question 4.

The quadratic equation 2x^{2} – √5x + 1 = 0 has

(A) two distinct real roots

(B) two equal real roots

(C) no real roots

(D) more than 2 real roots

Solution:

(C) no real roots

Explanation : 2x^{2} – √5x + 1 = 0

On comparing with ax^{2} + bx + c =0

a = 2,b = -√5, c = 1

Discriminant = b^{2} – 4ac = (-√5)^{2} – 4(2)(1)

= 5 – 8 = -3 < 0

Therefore, the equation has no real roots.

Question 5.

Graphically, the pair of equations x = 9 and y = 17 represents two lines which are

(A) intersecting at (17, 9)

(B) intersecting at (9, 17)

(C) coincident

(D) parallel

Solution:

(B) intersecting at (9, 17)

Explanation : Given equations are x = 9, y = 17 in standard form x + 0 .y – 9 = 0 and 0.x + y – 17 = 0

\(\begin{aligned}

& \frac{a_1}{a_2}=\frac{1}{0}, \frac{b_1}{b_2}=\frac{0}{1} \\

& \frac{c_1}{c_2}=\frac{-9}{-17}=\frac{9}{17}

\end{aligned}\)

Since, \(\frac{a_1}{a_2} \neq \frac{b_1}{b_2}\)

Hence, given lines are intersecting at x = 9, y = 17

ie., (9,17)

Question 6.

In which ratio the y-axis divides the line segment joining the points (5, – 6) and (-1, – 4).

(A) 1:5

(B) 5:1

(C) 1:1

(D) 1:2

Solution:

(B) 5:1

Explanation : Let the required point be P(0, a) and required ratio AP: PB = k: 1.

\(0=\frac{k(-1)+1(5)}{k+1}\)

⇒ -k + 5 = 0

⇒ k = 5

Hence, required ratio is 5: 1.

Question 7.

In the given figure, if TP and TQ are tangents to a circle with centre O, so that ∠POQ = 110°, then ∠PTQ is

(A) 110°

(B) 90°

(C) 80°

(D) 70°

Solution:

(D) 70°

Explanation: Given, ∠POQ = 110°

Since, the tangent at any point of a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact

∠OPT = 90°, ∠OQT = 90°

Now i in quadrilateral ∠PTQ, ∠POQ + ∠OQT + ∠QTP + ∠TPO = 360°

110° + 90° + ∠QTP + 90° = 360°

∠QTP = 70°

Question 8.

In the figure given below, two line segments AC and BD intersect each other at the point P such that PA = 6 cm, PB = 3.cm, PC = 2.5 cm, PD = 5 cm, ∠APB = 50° and ∠CDP = 30°. Then, ∠PBA is equal to

(A) 50°

(B) 30°

(C) 60°

(D) 100°

Solution:

(D) 100°

In the given figure, PB \(\frac{P A}{P B}=\frac{6}{3}\) = 2 and \(\frac{P D}{P C}=\frac{5}{2.5}\) = 2

Thus, in ΔAPB ∼ ΔDPC,

and ∠APB = ∠DPC (vertically opposite angle)

By SAS similarity, we get ΔAPB ∼ ΔDPC.

∠PAB = ∠PDC = 30°

Now in Triangle APB,

∠PAB + ∠PBA + ∠APB = 180° (Angle sum property of triangle)

30 + ∠PBA + 50 = 180

∠PBA = 100

Hence, ∠PBA = 100°.

Question 9.

From a point Q, the length of the tangent to a circle is 24 cm and the distance of Q from the centre is 25 cm. The radius of the circle is

(A) 7 cm

(B) 12 cm

(C) 15 cm

(D) 245 cm

Solution:

(A) 7 cm

Explanation: Let O be the centre of the circle.

Given that, OQ = 25 cm and PQ = 24cm

We know that the radius is perpendicular to the tangent at the point of contact, OP ⊥ PQ

In ΔOPQ, we have

By Pythagoras theorem,

OP^{2} + PQ^{2} = OQ^{2}

OP^{2} + 24^{2} = 25^{2}

OP^{2} + 576 = 625

OP^{2} = 625 – 576

OP^{2} = 49

OP = 7cm

Therefore, the radius of the circle is 7 cm.

Question 10.

Given that sec θ = √2, the value of is

(A) 2√2

(B) √2

(C) 3√2

(D) 2

Solution:

(A) 2√2

Explanation: It is given that

sec θ = √2 …(i)

Also, sec 45° = √2 …(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we get

θ = 45°

Put value of θ in \(\frac{1+\tan \theta}{\sin \theta}\),

\(\frac{1+\tan \theta}{\sin \theta}=\frac{1+\tan 45^{\circ}}{\sin 45^{\circ}}\)

\(=\frac{1+1}{\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}}\)

Or, = 2 √2

Question 11.

Question 21.

Solve for x: \(\sqrt{2 x+9}\) + x = 13

Solution:

\(\sqrt{2 x+9}\) = 13 – x

⇒ 2x + 9 = (13 – x)^{2}

⇒ 2x + 9 = 169 + x^{2} – 26x

⇒ x^{2} – 28x + 160 = 0

⇒ (x – 20)(x – 8) = 0

x = 20

Hence, OSAP is a square.

AP = AS = 10cm

CR =CQ=27cm

(Tangent drawn from an external point to a circle are equal)

BQ = BC – CQ

= 38 – 27 = 11cm

BP = BQ = 11cm

(Tangent drawn from an external point to a circle are equal)

x = AB = AP + BP

= 10 + 11 = 21 cm

Question 23.

In fig., PA and PB are tangents to the circle with centre O such that ∠APB = 50°. Write the measure of ∠OAB.

Solution:

Here, ∠APB = 50°

(Tangent drawn from an external point to a circle are equal, therefore PA = PB)

∠PAB = ∠pBa = \(\frac{180^{\circ}-50^{\circ}}{2}\)

= 65°

(Angles opposite to equal sides are equal )

∠OAB = 90° – ∠PAB

= 90° – 65° = 25°

Question 27.

Find the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial x^{2} + 7x + 10 and verify the relationship between the zeroes and the coefficients.

Solution:

Let p (x) = 2 + 7x +e 10 for the zeroes of the Polynomial put p(x) =0

x^{2} + 7x + 10 = 0

x^{2} + 5x + 2x + 10 = 0

x(x + 2) + 2(x + 5) = 0

(x + 2) (x + 5) = 0

x = -2 and x = -5

∴ α = -2and β = -5are the zeroes of the polynomial

Verification: Sum of zeroes = α + β = (- 2) + (-5)

= -7 = -7/1 = \(\frac{\text {-Coefficient of } x}{\text { Coefficient of } x^2}\)

Product of zeroes = αβ = (- 2) (5) = 10 = 10/1

= \(\frac{\text { Constant } x}{\text { Coefficient of } x^2}\)

x | 6 | 1 | -4 |

y | 0 | -1 | -2 |

From above a system of equation has infinite many solutions. hence, A system of equation is consistent. (as we know system of equations is called consistent if there is at least one set of values for the unknowns that satisfies each equation in the system.)

OR

The sum of ages (in years) of a son and his father is 35 years and product of their ages is 150 years, find their ages.

Solution:

Let the age of father be x years.

and age of son be y years.

x + y = 35 and xy = 150

or y =35 – x

Putting the value of y in xy = 150

x(35 – x) = 150

⇒ x^{2} – 35x + 150 =0

⇒ (x – 30)(x – 5) =0

⇒ x = 30 or x = 5 (rejected)

y = 5

Hence; the age of father = 30 years and the age of son = 5 years.

Question 29.

⇒ 4a = 32

⇒ a = 8

and \(\frac{(a-3 d)(a+3 d)}{(a-d)(a+d)}=\frac{7}{15}\)

\(\frac{a^2-9 d^2}{a^2-d^2}=\frac{7}{15}\)

800-900 | 7 | 72 + x + y |

900-1000 | 4 | 76 + x + y |

Total | N = 100 |

Also, 76 + x + y = 100

⇒ x + y = 100 – 76 = 24

Given, Median = 525, which lies between class 500 – 600.

⇒ Median class = 500 – 600

Now, Median = i + \(\frac{\frac{N}{2}-c . f}{f}\) × h

⇒ 525 = 500 + \(\left[\frac{\frac{100}{2}-(36+x)}{20}\right]\) × 100

⇒ 25 = (50 – 36 – x)5

⇒ 14 – x = 25/2 = 5

⇒ x = 14 – 5 = 9

Putting the value of x in eq. (i), we get

y = 24 – 9 = 15

Hence, x = 9 and y = 15.

Question 35.

A parkis of the shape of a circle of diameter 7 m. It is surrounded by a path of width of 0.7 m. Find the expenditure of cementing the path. If its cost is ₹ 110 per sq. m.

Given, the diameter of park = 7 m

Radius = \( \frac{7}{2}\) = 3.5 m

The width of path= 0.7 m

∴ Radius of park with path

= 3.5 + 0.7 = 4.2 m

Area of the path = π(4.2)^{2} – π(3.5)^{2}

= \( \frac{22}{7}\)(17.64 – 12.25)

= \( \frac{7}{2}\) × 5.39 = 22 × 0.77

= 16.94 m^{2}

Cost of the cementing the path

= 16.94 × 110

= ₹ 1863.40

a_{9} = 22,600

a + (n – 1)d = 22,600

a + (9 – 1)d =22,600

a + 8d = 22,600 …(ii)

Solving equation (i) and (ii)

Now, putting d = 2,200 in equation (i)

a + 5d = 16,000

a + 5 × 2,200 = 16,000

a + 11,000 = 16,000

a = 5,000

(ii) Production during 8^{th} year is (a + 7d) = 5000 + 7(2200) = 20400

(iii) Production during first 3 year

= 5000 + 7200 + 9400

= 21600

OR

In which year, the production is = ₹ 29,200.

Solution:

a_{n} = 29,20

a+ (n – 1)d = 29,200

(n – 1)2,200 = 29,200 – 5,000

2200n – 2,200 = 24,200

2200n = 26,400

n = \(\frac{26,400}{2,200}\)

n = 12

In 12^{th} year, the production is ₹ 29,200.

The diagram show the plans for a sun room. It will be built onto the wall of a house. The four walls of the sun room are square clear glass panels. The roof is made using,

Four clear glass panels, trapezium in shape, all of the same size

One tinted glass panel, half a regular octagon in shape

(i) Refer to Top View, find the mid-point of the segment joining the points J(6, 17) and I(9, 16).

(ii) Refer to front View, find the distance of the point P from the Y-axis.

(iii) Refer to front view, find the distance between the points A and S.

Solution:

(i) Mid-point of J(6, 17) and I(9, 16) is

x = \(\frac{6+9}{2}\) and y = \(\frac{17+16}{2}\) x = \(\frac{15}{2}\) and y = \(\frac{33}{2}\)

(ii) The distance of the point P from the Y-axis = 4.

(iii) A’s coordinates = (1, 8)

S’s coordinates= (15, 8)

Then, AS \(\begin{aligned}

& =\left|\sqrt{(15-1)^2+(8-8)^2}\right| \\

& =\sqrt{(14)^2}

\end{aligned}\) = 14

OR

Refer to front view, find the co-ordinates of the point which divides the line segment joining the points A and B in the ratio 1 : 3 internally.

Solution:

The coordinates of A = (1, 8)

The coordinates of B = (4, 10)

and, m = 1 and n = 3

then, (x, y) \(\begin{aligned}

& =\left(\frac{1 \times 4+3 \times 1}{1+3}, \frac{1 \times 10+3 \times 8}{1+3}\right) \\

& =\left(\frac{7}{4}, \frac{34}{4}\right)

\end{aligned}\)

= (1.75, 8.5)

Question 38.

‘Skysails’ is that genre of engineering science that uses extensive utilization of wind energy to move a vessel in the sea water. The sky sails technology allows the towing kite to gain a height of anything between 100 m to 300 m. The sailing kite is made in such a way that it can be raised to its proper elevation and then brought back with the help of a telescopic mast that enables the kite to be raised properly and effectively.
