## ANSWERS

**Answer**1) For what value of k will the following system of linear equations have an infinite number of solutions : 2x + 3y = 2; (k + 2)x + (2k + 1)y = 2(k – 1) ? (Marks 2) 2x + 3y = 2 ……………………… (i) (k + 2)x + (2k + 1)y = 2(k – 1) ……. (ii) (ii) cab represented as follow: ((k + 2)/(k – 1))x + ((2k + 1)/(k – 1))y = 2 ……. (iii) (i) and (iii) can have infinite number of solution if ==> ((k + 2)/(k – 1))/2 = ((2k + 1)/(k – 1))/3 ==> (k + 2)/(2(k – 1)) = (2k + 1)/(3(k – 1)) ==> 3(k + 2) = 2(2k + 1) ==> 3k + 6 = 4k + 2 ==> k = 4

**Answer**2) Find whether the number 6, 10, 14 and 22 are in proportional or not. If not what number be added to each number so that they become proportional ? 6, 10, 14 and 22 are in proportional ==> if 6/10 is equal to 14/22 ==> 6 x 22 = 132 ==> 10 x 14 = 140 ==> As 132 and 140 are not equal so 6, 10, 14 and 22 are NOT in proportional Assume that if number “n” is added to each number, then 6, 10, 14 and 22 become proportional. ==> (6 + n)/(10 + n) = (14 + n)/(22 + n) ==> (6 + n)(22 + n) = (14 + n)(10 + n) ==> n2 + 28n + 132 = n2 + 24n + 140 ==> 4n = 8 ==> n = 2 ==> So number 2 can be added to each number so that they become proportional.

**Answer**3) Reduce the following relation expression into lowest form: (x4 – 10×2 + 9)/(x3 + 4×2 + 3x) ==> (x4 – 9×2 – x2 + 9)/(x3 + 3×2 + x2 + 3x) ==> ((x4 – 9×2 – x2 + 9)) / ((x3 + 3×2 + x2 + 3x)) ==> (x2(x2 – 9) – (x2 – 9)) / ( x(x2 + 3x) + (x2 + 3x) ) ==> (x2(x2 – 9) – (x2 – 9)) / ( x(x2 + 3x) + (x2 + 3x) ) ( (x2 – 1) (x2 – 9) ) / ( (x + 1)(x2 + 3x) ) ==> ( (x + 1)(x – 1)(x + 3)(x – 3) ) / ( x(x + 1)(x + 3) ) ==> ( (x – 1)(x – 3) ) / (x) ==> (x2 – 4x + 3) / (x)

**Answer**4) Solve for x and y ax + by = a – b – (i) bx – ay = a + b – (ii) Multiply (i) by b and multiply (ii) by a ==> abx + b2y = ab – b2 …………(iii) ==> abx – a2y = a2 + ab …………(iv) ==> Subtract (iii) and (iv) ==> b2y + a2y = – b2 – a2 ==> y(b2 + a2) = -(b2 + a2) ==> y = -1 ==> Substitue the vale of y in (i) ==> ax – b = a – b ==> ax = a ==> x = 1

**Answer**5) Find the value of k such that sum of the roots of the quadratic equation 3×2 + (2k + 1)x – (k + 5) = 0 is equal to the product of its roots. (Marks 2) Sum of the roots = -(2k + 1)/3 Product of the roots = -(k + 5)/3 ==> So -(2k + 1)/3 = -(k + 5)/3 => -2k – 1 = -k – 5 => k = 4

**Answer**6) Find two consecutive numbers, whose square have sum 85. Assume that the two consecutive numbers are n and n+1 ==> n2 + (n+1)2 = 85 ==> n2 + n2 + 2n + 1 = 85 ==> 2n2 + 2n -84 = 0 ==> n2 + n – 42 = 0 ==> n2 + 7n – 6n – 42 = 0 ==> n(n + 7) -6(n + 7) = 0 ==> (n – 6)(n + 7) = 0 ==> n = 6 or n = -7 ==> So the two consecutive numbers are 6,7 OR -7, -6

**Answer**7) Without using trignometric table, show that: tan 7o . tan 23o . tan 60o . tan 67o . tan 83o = Ö3 (Left hand side) (LHS) = tan 7o . tan 23o . tan 60o . tan 67o . tan 83o (Right hand side) (RHS) = 3 LHS = tan 7o . tan 23o . tan 60o . tan 67o . tan 83o ==> tan(90o – 83o) . tan(90o – 67o) . tan 60o . tan 67o . tan 83o ==> cot83o . cot67o . tan 60o . tan 67o . tan 83o ==> 1/(tan83o) . 1/(tan67o) . tan 60o . tan 67o . tan 83o ==> tan 60o ==> Ö3 ==> Therefore LHS = RHS (proved)

**Answer**8) Show that (sinq – 2sin3q )/(2cos3q – cosq ) = tanq . (Marks 2) L.H.S = (sinq – 2sin3q )/(2cos3q – cosq ) R.H.S = tanq ==> L.H.S = (sinq – 2sin3q )/(2cos3q – cosq ) ==> L.H.S = ((sinq)(1 – 2sin2q )/((cosq)(2cos2q – 1 ) ==> L.H.S = ((sinq)(1 – sin2q – sin2q)/((cosq)(cos2q + cos2q – 1 ) ==> L.H.S = ((sinq)(cos2q – sin2q)/((cosq)(cos2q – sin2q ) ==> L.H.S = ((sinq)(cos2q – sin2q)/((cosq)(cos2q – sin2q ) ==> L.H.S = (sinq)/(cosq) ==> L.H.S = tanq = R.H.S

**Answer**12) Rita purchased a car, with a market price of Rs. 2,10,000 at a discount of 5%. If the sales tax charged at 10%, find the amount Rita had to pay for purchasing the car. (Marks 2) Assume that Rita had to pay amount y for purchasing the car Market price of the car = 210000 Discount (@5%) = (5/100)x210000 = Rs 10500 Price of car before sales tax = 210000 – 10500 = Rs 199500 Sales tax @10%) = (10/100)x199500 = Rs 19950 Price of car after sales tax = 199500 + 19950 = Rs 219450

**Answer**13) The mean weight of 21 students of a class is 52 kg. If the mean weight of first 11 students of the class is 50 kg and that of last 11 students is 54 kg, find the weight of the 11th student. Assume the weight of 11th student is n. Total weight of first 11 student = 11 x 50 = 550 Total weight of first 11 student = 11 x 54 = 594 Total weight of first 21 student = 21 x 52 = 1092 ==> 550 + 594 = 1092 + n ==> n = 52 ==> So weight of the 11th student is 52

**Answer**14) The following data has been arranged in ascending order: 12, 14, 17, 21, x, 26, 28, 32, 36. If the median of the data is 23, find x. If 32 is changed to 23, find the new median. (Marks 2) Number of observations n = 10 Median = (5th observation + 6th observation)/2 ==> 23 = (22 + x)/2 ==> x = 24 If 32 is changed to 23 then median = (22 + 23)/2 ==> median = 45/2 = 22.5

**Answer**17) A part of monthly hostel charges in a college are fixed and the remaining depends on the number of days one has taken food in the mess. When a student A takes food for 20 days, he has to pay Rs. 1000 as hostel charges where as a student B, who takes food for 26 days, pays Rs. 1180 as hostel charges. Find the fixed charge and the cost of food per day. (Marks 4) Assume the fixed charges of hostel is = p Assume cost of food per day is = v So charges for student A = p + 20v = 1000 ……………..(i) Charges for student B = p + 26v = 1180 ……………..(i) Subtract (ii) – (i) 6v = 180 ==> v = 30 Substitute the value of v in equation (i) ==> p + 600 = 1000 ==> p = 400 ==> So Fixed charge = p = Rs 400.00 , and cost of food per day = v = Rs 30.00

**Answer**18) Find the value of a and b so that the polynomials p(x) and q(x) have (x + 1)(x – 2) as their HCF. p(x) = (x2 + 3x + 2)(x2 + x + a) q(x) = (x2 – 3x + 2)(x2 – 3x + b) (Marks 4) p(x) = (x2 + 3x + 2)(x2 + x + a) q(x) = (x2 – 3x + 2)(x2 – 3x + b) ==> x – 2 is a factor of x2 + x + a => 4 + 2 + a = 0 ==> a = -6 x + 1 is a factor of x2 – 3x + b => 1 + 3 + b = 0 ==> b = -4 ==> a = -6, b = -4 Question 19) A page of pass book of Ved is given below :-

**Answer**20 ) Annual Income = Rs. 1,60,000, Standard Deduction = Rs. 20,000 Taxable Income = Rs. 1,60,000 – Rs. 20,000 = Rs. 1,40,000 Income Tax = Rs. 1,000 + Rs. 16000 = Rs. 17,000 Total Saving = 5000 x 12 + 5000 x 2 = 60,000 + 10,000 = Rs. 70,000 Rebate = Rs. 12,000 Income Tax payable = Rs. 17,000 – Rs. 12,000 = Rs. 5000 Total Income tax, including surcharge = 5000 + 10/100 x 5000 = Rs. 5500 Advance tax paid = 11 x 400 = Rs. 4400 Income Tax payable in the last month = Rs. 1100
