All questions are compulsory

### Section A

(Part l)

Q1.If sin²θ = 1/(1 +tan²θ) then θ =

Solution:

The given equation is

sin²θ = 1/(1 +tan²θ)

sin²θ = 1/sec²θ

sin²θ = cos²θ

sin²θ = 1- sin²θ

2sin²θ -1 = 0

sin²θ -1/2 =0

sin²θ -(1/√2)² =0

(sinθ +1/√2)( sinθ – 1/√2) = 0

sinθ  = -1/√2, sinθ = 1/√2

sinθ = sin45°

θ =45°

Q2.If cotθ = 7/8 then find the value of (1 +cosθ)(1 -cosθ)/(1 -sinθ)(1 +sinθ)

Solution:

Given that cotθ = 7/8

(1 +cosθ)(1 -cosθ)/(1 -sinθ)(1 +sinθ)

=(1- cos²θ)/(1-sin²θ)

=sin²θ/cos²θ

=tan²θ

= 1/cot²θ = (8/7)² = 64/49 Since cotθ = 7/8

Q3.If cosecθ = 5/3 then find the value  of cosθ +tanθ

Solution:

It is given that cosecθ = 5/3

Since cosecθ = hypotenuse(h)/perpendicular(p)

Base(b) = √(h²-p²) = √(5²-3²) =√(25-9) =√16 =4

cosθ +tanθ  = b/h + p/b = 4/5 +3/4 =(16+15)/20 = 31/20

Q4.If sinθ = 4/5 then cosθ = ?

Solution:

It is given that sinθ = 4/5

Since sinθ = perpendicular(p)/hypotenuse(h)

Base(b) = √(h²-p²) = √(5²-4²) =√(25-16) =√9 =3

cosθ = b/h = 3/5

(cos0°.cos30°.cos45°.cos60°)× 0=0

Q6.(i) If P(E) =0.08 find P(E’) =

Solution:

P(E) =0.08,

We have

P(E) + P(E’) = 1

P(E’) = 1 – P(E)  = 1 -0.08 = 0.92

(ii) A card is selected from a deck of 52 cards. The probability of its being a red face card is………

Solution: Total number of cards = 52

Total number of red face cards = 26

P(red face cards) = Total number of red face cards /Total number of cards

P(red face cards) = 26/52 = 1/2

Q7.Median of 35,38,39,34,35,37,38,40,42,45,41,41,40,35,37,38,36,40,36,37

34,35,35,35,36,36,37,37,37,38,38,38,39,40,40,40,41,41,42,45

No. of observations are = 20

20(n) is even no. therefore applying the following median formula

Median = [(n/2) th term + (n/2 +1) the term]/2

= [(20/2) th term + (20/2 +1) the term]/2

= [10 th term + 11 the term]/2

= (38 +38)/2 =38

Hence median of the given data is 38

Q8.If mean =52.08 and mode =51.6.Find Median.

Solution:

We have

Mode = 3 median – 2mean

51.6 = 3 median -2×52.08

3 median = 51.6 +104.16

3 median =155.76

median = 155.76/3 = 51.92

Q16.

Case Study -1

Qutub Minar located in south Delhi, India, was built in the year 1193. It is a 72m high tower. Working on a school project, Charu and Daljeet visited the monument. They used trigonometry to find their distance from the tower. Observe the picture given below. Points C and D represent their positions on the ground in line with the base of the tower, the angles of elevation of the top of the tower(Point A) are 60° and 45° from points C and D respectively.

(i)Based on the above information, draw a well-labeled diagram.

Solution: Let the AB is the height of the Qutub Minar and BC is the distance of Charu and BD is the distance of Daljeet from the Qutub Minar

tan θ = perpendicular/base

tan 60° = AB/BC

√3 = 72/BC

BC = 72/√3  = 72√3 /3 =24√3 m

tan 45° = AB/BD

1= 72/BD

BD = 72 m

Therefore the distance of Charu and Daljeet from Qutub Minar are  24√3 m and 72 m respectively

(ii)Find the distance CD,BC and BD.(use √3 =1.73)

Solution: The distance BC and BD are already computed in (i)

BC = 24√3 = 24×1.73 =41.52 m

BD = 72 m

Therefore CD = BD -BC

CD = 72-41.52 =30.48 m

Case Study -3(any four)

Q19.The given figure along side shows the path of a driver,when she takes a jump from the driving board.Clearly it is a parabola.

Annie was standing on a driving board,48 feet above the water level.She took a drive into the pool.Her height(in feet) above the water level at any time’t‘ in seconds is given by the polynomial h(t) such that

h(t) = -16t² +8t +k

(i)What is the value of k?

(a)0          (b)-48       (c)48        (d)49/-16

Solution: k is a constant in the given polynomial h(t) = -16t² +8t +k

We know the height of Annie at t=0 is 48 m above the water level

48 = -16×0² +8×0 +k

k =48

(ii)What time will she touch the water in the pool?

(a)30 seconds      (b)2 seconds     (c)1.5 seconds     (d)0.5 seconds

Solution:

When Annie touch the pool her height above the pool will be,h =0

Putting h =0 and k=48 in the hiven polynomial h(t) = -16t² +8t +k

0 = -16t² +8t +48

16t² -8t -48 =0

2t² -t -6 =0

2t² -4t+3t -6 =0

2t(t -2) +3(t-2) =0

(t-2)(t+3) =0

t =2, t= -3

Neglective t=-3 because time can not be negative

Therefore she will touch the pool in 2 seconds

(iii)Rita’s height(in feet) above the water level is given by another polynomial p(t) with zeroes -1 and 2.Then p(t) is given by:

(a) t² +t-2             (b)t² +2t-1     (c)24t² -24t+48     (d)-24t² +24t+48

Solutions:

The polynomial p(t) with zeroes α=-1 and β=2 is given by

t² -(α+β)t+αβ

=t² -(-1+2)t+(-1)2

=t² -t-2

We can multiply it by -24 we get the required polynomial with the same zeroes

p(t) = -24t² +24t+48

(iv)A polynomial q(t) with sum of zeroes as 1 and the product as -6 is modelling Anu’s height in feet above the water at any time t(in seconds).Then q(t) is given by

(a) t² +t+6             (b)t² +t-6     (c)-8t² +8t+48     (d)8t² -8t+48

Solutions:

The polynomial q(t) with zeroes α and β is given by

q(t)=t² -(α+β)t+αβ

=t² -(1)t+(-6)

=t² -t-6

We can multiply it by -8 we get the required polynomial with the same zeroes

q(t) = -8t² +8t+48

(v)The zeroes of the polynomial r(t) = -12t² +(k-3)t +48 are negative of each other.Then k is:

(a)3          (b)0          (c)-1.5        (d)-3

Solution:

The polynomial r(t) with zeroes α and β is given by

r(t)=t² -(α+β)t+αβ

Since it is given that β = -α

r(t) = t² -(α-α)t+α(-α)

r(t) =t²  – α²

Comparing with the given polynomial r(t) = -12t² +(k-3)t +48

k-3=0

k= 3

The point on the ground is C

tan α= AB/BC

BC = AB/tanα…. (1)

tanβ = (AB+h)/BC

BC = (AB+h)/tanβ…. (2)

From equations (1) and (2)

AB/tanα = (AB+h)/tanβ

ABtanβ = tanαAB+htanα

AB(tanβ-tanα) = htanα

AB = htanα/(tanβ-tanα)

Taking

(3k +1)/(k² +1)=3/(k -2)

(3k +1)(k -2)=3(k² +1)

3k²-6k +k-2 = 3k²+3

-5k -2 =3

-5k -5 =0

5(-k +1) =0

k = 1

Taking

3/(k -2)≠-2/-5

-2k +4 ≠-15

-2k ≠-15-4

-2k≠-19

k≠-19/2 =-9.5

Therefore for the value of k=1 and k≠-9.5 the given pair of linear equation have no solutions

Q32.Prove that √5 + √2 is an irrational number.

Solution:

Let (√5 + √2) is a rational number

Hence √5 + √2 =a/b[where a and b are co-prime number]

Squiring both sides

(√5 + √2)² =(a/b)²

5 +2 +√10 =a²/b²

7 +√10 =a²/b²

√10 =a²/b²-7

√10 =(a²-7b²)/b²

Irrational number =Rational number

It is impossible because it is against our assumption

Therefore (√5 + √2) is an irrational number

Q33.A circle is inscribed in ΔABC touching AB,BC and AC at P,Q and R respectively.If AB =10 cm,AR =7 cm and CR =5 cm.Find the length of BC and the radius of circle.

Solution: Given that in ΔABC,AB =10 cm,AR =7 cm and CR =5 cm

Since the tangents drawn from an external point to the circle are equal

CR =CQ=5 cm

BQ =BC -CQ = BC -5

BP =BQ =BC -5

AP =10-BP=10-(BC -5) =BC -5

AP =AR

BC -5 =7

BC =12

Drawing two radii of the given circle RO and PO

OR =PO =r

Considering the ΔAOR and ΔAOP

ΔAOR and ΔAOP are  right triangles[tangent ⊥ radius ]

In ΔAOR

AO² = 7²+ OR²=49+ r²

AO²= 49 +r²…….(i)

Similarly in ΔAOP

AO²= AP² +r²=(AB -BP)² +r²

AO²=[(10-BP)²+r²]

BP =BC-5 =12-5=7

AO²=[(10-7)²+r²]

Putting the value of BC =12

Q34.Two men are either side of a 75 m high building and in line with base of building observe the angles of elevtion of the top of the building as 30° and 60°.Find the distance between the two men.[use √3 =1.73]

Solution:

Let the buiding is PQ and two men are located at R and S such that the angle of elevation from the point R is 60° and 30° from the point S

The height of building(PQ) is given 75 m

tan 60° = PQ/QR

√3 = 75/QR

QR = 75/√3 = 25√3 = 25×1.73=43.25 m

tan 30° = PQ/QS

1/√3 = 75/QS

QS = 75√3  = 75×1.73=129.75 m

The distance between the two men ,RS =43.25 m+129.75 m=173 m

Or

From the top of a 50 m high tower,the angles of depression of the top and bottom of a pole are observed to be 30° and 45° respectively.Find the height of the pole.[√3 =1.73]

Solution:

Let the height of the tower is AB and the height of the pole is CD, height of the tower is given 50 m

Angles of depression from the top of the tower to the top and bottom of the pole are 30° and 45°

Drawing a line DE parallel to BC

CD = BE

Angle of depression =Angle of elevation

tan 30°= AE/DE

1/√3 = AE/DE

1/√3 = (50-BE)/DE…….(i)

tan 45°= AB/BC

1 = 50/BC

BC =50

BC = DE=50 m(BCDE is a rectangle)

Putting the value of DE in equation (i)

1/√3 = (50-BE)/50

50√3 -BE√3 =50

BE√3 =50√3 -50

BE =50(√3 -1)/√3

BE= 50(1.73 -1)/1.73

BE = 50×0.73/1.73 ≈21.09

BE =CD =21.09 m

Hence the height of the pole is 21.09 m

Q35.In a coeducational school, there are 2800 students. If in a year the number of boys were to increase by 5% and that of the girls by 10%, the school would have 3000 students. Find the original number of boys and girls studying in the school.

Solution: Let the original number of boys and girls studying in the school are x and y

The total number of students in the school are given 2800

x + y = 2800…….(i)

If the number of boys was to increase 5% and the number of girls increase by 10% then the number of boys and girls will become (x +5x/100) and (y+10y/100) respectively and total number of students were increased to 3000

(x +5x/100) + (y+10y/100) =3000

x +x/20 +y +y/10 =3000

21x/20 +11y/10 =3000

21x + 22y = 60000……(ii)

Multiplying equation (i) by 21 ,we get equation (iii)

21x +21y = 58800 ….(iii)

Subtracting equation (iii) from equation (ii)

y  =1200

Putting y =1200 in equation (i)

x = 3000 -1200 =1800

Hence the original number of boys and girls in the school are 1800 and 1200 respectively
