Now, we have S_{n}= 78, a = 24, d = 21 – 24 = -3

n(48 -3n+ 3) = 156

48n -3n² +3n = 156

-3n² + 51n – 156 = 0

3n² – 51 n + 156 = 0

n² – 17 n + 52 = 0

n² – 13 n -4n + 52 = 0

n(n -13) – 4(n -13) =0

(n -13)(n -4) = 0

n = 13, 4

Therefore, either the sum of the first 13 terms or the sum of the first 4 terms of the series is 78

**Q27.In figure two tangents TP and TQ are drawn to a circle with centre O from an external point P. Prove that ∠PTQ = 2∠QPQ.**

Ans.

Ans.

**GIVEN:** TP and TQ are the tangents drawn from T to the circle.

**TO PROVE:** ∠PTQ = 2∠QPQ

**PROOF:** PO is the radius of the circle

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

∠TPQ = ∠TQP (angles opposite to equal sides in a Δ)

∠OPT = 90° (angle between radius and tangent)

∠TPQ = 90°- ∠QPQ

According to the angle sum property of the Δ

∠PTQ + ∠TPQ + ∠TQP = 180°

∠PTQ + ∠TPQ + ∠TPQ = 180°

∠PTQ + 2∠TPQ = 180°

∠PTQ +2(90°- ∠QPQ) = 180°

∠PTQ + 180° – 2∠QPQ = 180°

∠PTQ = 2∠QPQ,Hence proved

**Q28. Sunita has some notes of Rs.50 and Rs.100 amounting to a total of Rs.15,500. If the total number of notes is 200, then Find how many notes of Rs.50 and Rs.100 each she has?**

Ans. Let the number of Rs.50 notes are x and the number of Rs.100 note are y

According to first condition of the question

50x + 100y = 15,500

x + 2y = 310…..(i)

According to second condition of the question

x + y = 200……(ii)

Subtracting equation (ii) from equation (i)

y = 110

Putting the value of y = 110 in equation (ii)

x +110 = 200

x = 200 – 110 = 90

Hence she has 90 notes of Rs 50 and 11o notes of Rs 100

**Q29. Prove that √2 is an irrational number.**

Ans. Let √2 is a rational number

√2 = a/b (where a and b are co-prime numbers)

b√2 = a

2b² = a²…….(i)

We get from equation (i) that a² is divisible by 2

∴ a will also be divisible by 2

Now, we can write a = 2c (where c is another positive integer)

Putting a = 2c in equation number (i)

2b² = (2c)²= 4c²

b² = 2c²……(ii)

From (ii) it is clear that b² is divisible by 2

Then b will also be divisible by 2

It is evident from equations (i) and (ii) that 2 is a common factor between a and b, so a and b can’t be co-prime. Hence our assumption for √2 as a rational number is wrong, obviously, √2 is an irrational number.

Total number of remaining red cards =2-1= 1⇒Favourable outcomes =1

P(a red card) =1/50

(ii) Total number of possible outcomes =50

The number of jacks and kings =3 +4 = 7

The number of cards other than jacks and king = 50 -7 = 43⇒Favourable outcomes =43

P(neither a jack nor a king) = 43/90

(iii) Total number of possible outcomes =50

The number of queens and kings =3 +4 = 7⇒Favourable outcomes =7

P(either a king or a queen) = 7/50

**Q31. A well of diameter 3m is dug 14m deep. The earth taken out of it has been spread evenly all-around it in the shape of a circular ring of width 4m to form an embankment. Find the height of the embankment.**

Ans. Let the height of the embankment is = h, the radius of the well,r =3/2=1.5 m, the width of the embankment is =4m, inner radius of the embanment,r = 1.5 m and outer radius of embankment,R = 4+1.5 = 5.5 m,depth of the well,H = 14 m

Since the embankment is created by the earth taken out from the well

Therefore, The volume of well = The volume of the embankment

πr²H = π(R²-r²)h

1.5²×14 = (5.5² -1.5²)h

(30.25-2.25)h = 31.5

28 h = 31.5

h = 31.5/28 = 1.125

**Q33. A train traveling a distance of 360 km at a uniform speed would have taken 48 minutes less to travel the same distance if its speed were 5 km/h more. Find the original speed of the train.**

Ans. Let the original speed of the train is = x km/h

The distance traveled by train = 360 km

Time taken by the train with original speed = distance/time=360/x

If the train’s speed changed by the increase of 5 km/h, then it’s speed becomes =(x + 5) km/h.

Time taken by train with modified speed = 360/(x+5) h

48 minutes = 48/60 = 4/5 =0.8 h

According to question

360/x – 360/(x+5) = 0.8

360[1/x – 1/(x +5)] = 0.8

360[(x+5-x)/(x+5)x] =0.8

1800 = 0.8x(x+5)

0.8x² + 4x – 1800 = 0

0.2x² +x – 450 = 0

2x² +10x -4500 = 0

Applying the quadratic equation

x = (-10 +190)/4 = 180/4 = 45 or x = (-10 -190)/4 = -200/4 = -50

Since speed of the train can’t be negative,so the original speed of the train is 45 km/h.

Q34. A statue which is x m tall stands on the top of a 100 m pedestal on the ground. From a point on the ground, the angle of elevation of the top of the statue is 60° and from the same point, the angle of elevation of the top of the pedestal is 45°. Find the height of the statue.

Ans.

In the figure, BD is the pedestal of height 100 m and DA is the statute of the height x

We are given the angle of elevation of the top of the statue from a point C on the ground =60°

The angle of elevation of the top of the pedestal from the same point C =45°

tan 45° = BD/BC = 100/BC

1 = 100/BC⇒ BC = 100 m

tan 60°=AB/BC = (100 +x)/100

(100 +x)/100 = √3

100 +x = 100√3

x = 100√3 – 100 = 100(√3 – 1)

Hence, height of the statue is 100(√3 – 1) m

**Q35.Find the number of terms in an AP 18,15,12……. -48 and also find the sum of all of its terms.**

Ans. Let there are n terms in the AP, the given AP is 18,15,12……. -48

The n^{th} term of AP is given by

a_{n}= a + (n-1)d, where a = 18, d = 15 -18 = -3 and a_{n } = -48

18+(n-1)(-3) = -48

-3n +3 = -48 -18 = -66

-3n = -69

n = 23

Applying the following formula for getting the sum of n terms of an AP

Putting the value of n =23,a = 18, d = 15 -18 = -3

= 23×18 -23×66

= 414 – 1518 = -1104

Hence,sum of all terms of the given AP is -1104

**Q36. Find the missing frequencies f _{1 } and f_{2} if the mean of all observations given below is 38.2.**

Ans. We are given the mean of all observations is 38.2

Arranging the table for evaluating mean of the given data

Class Interval | Frequency(f) | Class mark(x) | fx |

0 – 10 | 4 | 5 | 20 |

10 – 20 | 4 | 15 | 60 |

20 -30 | f_{1} | 25 | 25 f_{1} |

30 -40 | 10 | 35 | 350 |

40 -50 | f_{2} | 45 | 45 f_{2} |

50 -60 | 8 | 55 | 440 |

60 -70 | 5 | 65 | 325 |

N=50 | ∑fx | =1195+25 f_{1}+45 |

We have

f_{1}+ f_{2}+31 = 50⇒f_{1}+ f_{2}= 19……(i)

Applying the direct method for getting the mean

25** f _{1}**+45

**f**= 1910- 1195

_{2 }25** f _{1}**+45

**f**= 715……(ii)

_{2}Substituting ** f _{1 }**=( 19-

**f**) equation (i) in equation (ii)

_{2 }25** ( 19- f _{2 } )**+45

**f**= 715

_{2}475 –** 25f _{2 }** + 45

**f**= 715

_{2}20** f _{2}**= 715 – 475 = 340

** f _{2}**= 17

Putting the value of **f _{2}**= 17 in equation ( i)

**f _{1}**= 19-17 = 2

Hence the value of **f _{1}** is 2 and of

**f**is 17
