**Q21.** Show that (a– b)², (a² + b²) and (a + b)² are in AP.

**Ans**.Condition of AP series is, 2nd term – 1 st term = 3 rd term – 2 nd term

2nd term – 1 st term = (a² + b²) – (a– b)² = a² + b² –( a² + b² – 2ab)= 2ab

3 rd term – 2 nd term = (a + b)² – (a² + b²) = a² + b² + 2ab – a² – b² = 2ab

Therefore condition of AP is satisfied because common difference is = 2ab, so given terms are in AP.

In Fig. 3, two tangents TP and TQ are drawn to a circle with centre O from an external point T. Prove that

∠PTQ =2∠OPQ.

**Ans.** From the Fig.3, OP is the radius

∠OPT = 90° ( tangent is perpendicular to radius)

∠OPQ = ∠OPT – ∠QPT

∠OPQ = 90 ° – ∠QPT

∠QPT = 90°– ∠OPQ ………(i)

In ΔPTQ,

TP = TQ ( tangents drawn to the circle from an external point)

∠QPT = ∠PQT………………(ii)

∠PTQ + ∠QPT + ∠PQT = 180° (angle sum property of the triangle)

∠PTQ + ∠QPT + ∠QPT = 180°(from ii equation)

∠PTQ + 2QPT = 180°………(iii)

Substituting the value of ∠QPT from (i) in the equation no.(iii)

∠PTQ + 2(90°– ∠OPQ) = 180°

∠PTQ + 180° – 2∠OPQ = 180°

∠PTQ = 2∠OPQ Hence proved

**Q29.** In a flight of 600 km, an aircraft was slowed due to bad weather. Its average speed for the trip was reduced by 200 km/hr and the time of flight increased by 30 minutes. Find the original duration of the flight.

**Ans. **Let the original speed of the flight is x km/h

The distance covered by aircraft = 600 km

The original time duration of the flight =

Modified speed = x – 200

The time taken with reduced speed =

30 minutes = 30/60 = 0.5 hrs

According to question

600x – 600x + 120000 = 0.5(x²– 200x)

0.5x² – 100x – 120000 = 0

x² – 200x – 240000 = 0

x² – 600x + 400x – 240000= 0

x(x – 600) + 400(x – 600) = 0

(x – 600)(x + 400) = 0

x = 600, – 400

Speed can’t be negative ,so the original speed of aircraft is = 600 km/h

∴ Original time duration of aircraft = Distance/original speed = 600/600 = 1

Therefore the original time duration of aircraft = 1 hour

**Q30.**Find the area of triangle PQR formed by the points P(– 5, 7), Q(– 4, – 5) and R(4, 5).

AB = DE (constructed)

BC = EF (constructed)

Putting AB = DE and BC = EF in eq.(i)

AC² = DE² + EF²…….(iii)

Comparing (ii) and (iii)

AC² = DF²

AC = DF

In triagle ABC and triagle DEF, we have

AB = DE, BC = EF and AC = DF (proved above)

In ΔDEF ∼ ΔABC

∠E = ∠B (By CPCT)

∠E = 90

∴∠B = 90°, Hence proved

1 + 2sinθ cosθ = 3

sinθ cosθ = 1……….(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

tanθ + cotθ = 1, Hence proved

**Ans.**

Let the height of the cone = h and its radius of base = r

ΔABF ∼ ΔAED, From the property of similar triangle

ED = r/2

Radius of the smaller cone = r/2 and height = h/2

So, volume of smaller cone (V1) = ( 1/3)πR²H where R =r/2 and H = h/2

Volume of the frustum =

r1 = r/2, r2 = r, H = h/2

V2 = 7 V1

The volume of the frustum is 7 times the volume of the smaller cone

Let b = 5, then possible values of r = 0,1,2,3 and 4

Corresponding values of positive integer are = 5Q, 5Q +1, 5Q +2, 5Q +3, 5Q +4

Squaring the positive integers = (5Q)² = 5(5Q²) =5q where q = 5Q²

(5Q +1)² = 25Q² + 10Q + 1 = 5(5Q² +2Q) + 1 = 5q + 1(where q = 5Q² +2Q, is another positive integer)

(5Q +2)² = 25Q² +20Q +4 = 5(5Q² + 4Q) + 4 = 5q + 4(where q =5Q² + 4Q. is another positive integer)

It has been proved that the square of any positive integer cannot be written in the form of (5q+2) or (5q +3)

**Or**

Solve : 1 + 4 + 7 + 10 + ……+ ………+ x = 287

Ans. Applying the n th term formula of AP

Where a = 1, d = 4 –1 = 3,

x = 1 + (n – 1) 3

x = 1 + 3n –3

The sum of the n th term of an AP is written as

Where l is final term of the given AP, and Sn = 287, substituting the value of n

1722 = (x + 2)(1 + x) = x² + x + 2 + 2x

x² + 3x –1720 = 0

x² + 43x – 40x –1720 = 0

x(x + 43) – 40(x + 43) = 0

(x + 43)(x – 40) = 0

x = – 43, 40

All the terms of AP are positive so x can not be negative, therefore value of x = 40

**Q37. **Draw a line segment AB of length 7 cm. Taking A as centre, draw a circle of radius 3 cm and taking B as centre, draw another circle of radius 2 cm. Construct tangents to each circle from the centre of the other circle.

**Ans.**

Steps of construction.

(i) Drawing a line segment AB of the length 7 cm.

(ii) Taking A and B as centres drawing two circles of radii 3 cm and 2 cm respectively.

(iii) Drawing perpendicular bisection of the line segments AB we get a midpoint C of AB and taking C as a centre drawing a circle of the diameter of the length AB. This circle intersects the circle of 3 cm at T and R and to the circle of 2 cm at P and Q.

(iv) Joining B to T and B to R, we get two tangents on the circle BT and BR drawn from the centre B of the circle of radius 2 cm and joining A to P and A to Q, we get two tangents AP and AQ drawn from the centre A of the circle of radius 3 cm.

**Q38.**A vertical tower stands on a horizontal plane and is surmounted by a vertical flag-staff 6m. At a point on the plane, the angles of elevation of the bottom and top of the flag-staff are 30° and 45° respectively. Find the height of the tower.(Take √3 = 1.73)

**Ans.**

Let height of vertical tower = h and the distance of the point of observation at the ground from the foot of the tower =x, Height of given flag-staff = 6 m

Considering both of the triangles, we have

x = h√3…..(i), x = h + 6……(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we have

h√3 = h + 6

h(√3 –1) = 6

Rationalizing the denominator

h = 3(1.73 +1) = 3 ×2.73 = 8.19

Hence height of the tower is 8.19 m

**Q39.** A bucket in the form of a frustum of a cone of height 30 cm with radii of its lower and upper ends as 10 cm and 20 cm, respectively. Find the capacity of the bucket. Also, find the cost of milk which can completely fill the bucket at the rate of Rs 40 per litre.(π/7)

**Ans.** The height of bucket (h) = 30 cm, radii of upper and lower radii, r1 = 10 cm and r2 =20 cm

The volume (V) of the frustum is given by the formula is as follows

V = 22000

Volume of the bucket is 22000 cub.cm

22000 cub.cm = 22000/1000 = 22 litre (1000 cub.cm = 1 litre)

Rate of milk = Rs 4o/litre

The cost of milk in the bucket is = 40 ×22 = 880

Hence the total cost of the milk in the bucket is = Rs 880

**Q40.** The following table gives production yield per hectare (in quintals) of wheat of 100 farms of a village:

Production yield/hect | 40 – 45 | 45 – 50 | 50 – 55 | 55 – 60 | 60 – 65 | 65 – 70 |

No. of farms | 4 | 6 | 16 | 20 | 30 | 24 |

Change the distribution to ‘a more than’ type distribution and draw its ogive.

**Ans.**

Production yield/hect(more than) | Number of farms (f) | Cumulative frequency (Cf) |

40 | 4 | 4 |

45 | 6 | 10 |

50 | 16 | 26 |

55 | 20 | 46 |

60 | 30 | 76 |

65 | 24 | 100 |

**Or**

The median of the following data is 525. Find the values of x and y, if the total frequency is 100:

Class: | 0-100 | 100-200 | 200-300 | 300-400 | 400-500 | 500-600 | 600-700 | 700-800 | 800-900 | 900-1000 |

Frequency: | 2 | 5 | x | 12 | 17 | 20 | y | 9 | 7 | 4 |

**Ans.**

Class | Frequency | Cumulative frequency |

0 – 100 100-200 200-300 300-400 400-500 500(L)-600 600-700 700-800 800-900 900-1000 | 2 5 x 12 17 20(F) y 9 7 4 | 2 7 7+x 19+x 36+x(CF) 56+x 56+x+y 65+x +y 72+x+y 76+x+y |

N =100

N/2 = 100/2 = 50, median = 525

We have 76+x+y = 100⇒x + y = 24…….(i)

Therefore the median group class lies in cf 56+ x

The lower limit of the median group (L) = 500, Cumulative frequency preceding the median group(CF) =36+x

Frequency of median group (F) = 20, C = 100(Class interval of median group)

25 × 20 = (50 –36 –x)100 = 1400 – 100x

100x = 900

x = 9

Putting this value in eq.(i) 9+ y = 24⇒ y = 15

Therefore the value of x and y are 9 and 15 respectively
