### QUESTION PAPER CODE 15E(A)

**SECTION – I**

** (4 * 1 = 4)**

**Question 1: Find the HCF of 60 and 100 by using Euclid’s division lemma.**

**Solution: **

Using Euclid’s division lemma –

100 = (60 × 1) + 40

60 = (40 × 1) + 20

40 = (20 × 2) + 0

The remainder is 0.

The HCF of 60 and 100 is 20.

**Question 2: Write A = {3, 9, 27, 81} in set builder form.**

**Solution:**

A = {3 , 9 , 27 , 81}

Set builder form

A = {x : x = 3^{n}, n belongs to N & n < 5}

**Question 3: Find the value of k for which the pair of equations 2x + ky + 3 = 0, 4x + 6y – 5 = 0 represent parallel lines.**

**Solution:**

On comparing the given equations,

2x – ky + 3 = 0 ,

4x + 6y – 5 = 0 with

a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} = 0 and a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0

a_{1} = 2 , b_{1} = -k , c_{1} = 3 ;

a_{2} = 4 , b_{2} = 6 , c_{2} = -5 ;

a_{1} / a_{2} = b_{1} / b_{2} ≠ c_{1} / c_{2}

a_{1} / a_{2} = b_{1} / b_{2}

2 / 4 = (-k) / 6

(2 × -6) / 4 = k

k = -3 or 18 / 5

**Question 4: Find the volume of the right circular cone with radius 3cm and height 14cm.**

**Solution:**

Given the radius of the cone is 3cm and height is 14cm.

The volume of the cone = (⅓) πr²h

= (1 / 3) × (22 / 7) × 3 × 3 × 14

= 22 × 3 × 2

= 132cm³

**SECTION – II**

** (5 * 2 = 10)**

**Question 5: Find the zeroes of the polynomial x ^{2} – 3 and verify the relationship between the zeroes and coefficients. **

**Solution:**

x² – 3 = 0

x² = 3

x = ±√3

The zeroes of the given polynomial are √3 and -√3.

**Relationship between the zeroes and coefficients**

Sum of zeroes = √3 + (-√3) = √3 – √3 = 0 = coefficient of -x / coefficient of x²

Product of zeroes = (√3) (-√3) = -(√3)² = -3 / 1 = constant / coefficient of x²

**Question 6: How many three-digit numbers are divisible by 3?**

**Solution: **

The three-digit natural numbers start from 100 and end with 999.

The first three-digit number which is divisible by 3 is 102.

The last three-digit number which is divisible by 3 is 999.

The number of three-digit numbers divisible by 3

= 999 / 3 – (102 / 3) + 1

= 333 − 34 + 1

= 300

**Question 7: A solid iron rod has a cylindrical shape. Its height is 11cm and base diameter is 7cm. Then find the total volume of 50 rods.**

**Solution:**

The height of the cylinder is 11cm.

The diameter of the cylinder is 7cm.

The volume of cylinder = πr^{2}h

= (22 / 7) * (7 / 2) * (7 / 2) * 11

= (121) * (7 / 2)

= 423.5

The volume of 50 such rods

= 50 × 423.5

= 21175 cm^{2}

**Question 8: Find the roots of x + (6 / x) = 7, x ≠ 0.**

**Solution:**

x + (6 / x) = 7

x^{2} – 7x + 6 = 0

x^{2} – 6x – x + 6 = 0

x (x – 6) – 1 (x – 6) = 0

x = 1, 6

**Question 9: Length of a rectangle is 2 units greater than its breadth. If the area of the rectangle is 120 square units, then find its length.**

**Solution:**

Breadth = x

Length = x + 2

Area = 120 square units

x (x + 2) = 120

x^{2} + 2x = 120

x^{2} + 2x – 120 = 0

(x + 12)(x – 10) = 0

x = (-12), (10)

The value of x can’t be negative as it is the breadth of a rectangle.

x = 10

Breadth = 10

Length = x + 2 = 10 + 2 = 12

**SECTION – III**

** (4 * 4 = 16)**

**Question 10: **

**[a] Hari went to a bank to withdraw Rs. 2000. He asked the cashier to give the cash in Rs. 50 and Rs. 100 separately. He got 25 notes in all. Can you tell how many notes, each of Rs. 50 and Rs. 100 he received?**

**OR**

**[b] How many spherical balls can be made out of a solid cube of lead, whose edges measure 66 cm and each ball being 3cm in radius?**

**Solution:**

Let the number of Rs. 100 notes are ‘y’.

Total notes = 25

⇒ x + y = 25

⇒ x = 25 – y

Total amount only in Rs. 50 notes = 50x

Total amount only in Rs. 100 notes = 100y

Total amount = 2000

⇒ 50x + 100y = 2000

⇒ 50(25 – y) + 100y = 2000

⇒ 50* 25 – 50y + 100y = 2000

⇒ 1250 + 50 y = 2000

⇒ 50y = 2000 – 1250 = 750

⇒ y = 750 / 50 = 15

x = 25 – 15 = 10

The number of Rs. 50 notes = 10

The number of Rs. 100 notes = 15

[b] Radius of each ball = 3 cmLength of the edge of cube = 66 cm

The volume of each ball is given by V = (4 / 3) πr^{3}

= (4 / 3) * (22 / 7) * (3^{3})

= 113.14 cm^{3}

The volume of a cube is given by a^{3} = 66^{3} = 287496

So, the number of spherical balls is given by

= volume of the cube / volume of the ball

= 287496 / 113.14

= 2541

Hence, there are 2541 spherical balls that can be made.

**Question 11: **

**[a] Show that √3 is irrational.**

**OR**

**[b] If A = {x : x is a natural number }**

**B = {x : x is an even number}**

**C = {x : x is an odd number}**

**D = {x : x is a prime number}**

**Then find A ∪ B, A ∩ C, B ∩ C and B ∩ D. What do you notice?**

**Solution:**

Then, there exist positive integers a and b such that √3 = a / b, where a and b are coprime, their HCF is 1.

√3 = a / b

⇒ 3 = a^{2} / b^{2}

⇒ 3b^{2} = a^{2}

⇒ 3 divided a^{2}

⇒ 3 divides a —- (1)

⇒ a = 3c for some integer c

⇒ a^{2} = 9c^{2}

⇒ 3b^{2} = 9c^{2}

⇒ b^{2} = 3c^{2}

⇒ 3 divides b^{2}

⇒ 3 divides b —- (2)

From (i) and (ii), it is observed that a and b have at least 3 as a common factor. But, this contradicts the fact that a and b are co-prime. This means that our assumption is not correct.

Hence, √3 is an irrational number.

[b] A ∪ B = {all natural numbers}A ∩ C = {all odd numbers}

B ∩ C = { }

B ∩ D = {2}

**Question 12: **

**[a] The sum of the reciprocals of Rehman’s age, (in years) 3 years ago and 5 years from now is 1 / 3. Find the present age.**

**OR**

**[b] If the sum of the first 7 terms and 15 terms of an AP are 98 and 390, respectively. Find the sum of the first 10 terms.**

**Solution:**

Rehman’s 3 years ago age will be x – 3. ———– (2)

Rehman’s 5 years ago age will be x + 5. ———- (3)

Given, the sum of reciprocals of (1), (2), (3) will be 1 / 3.

[1 / x – 3] + [1 / x + 5] = 1 / 3 [x + 5 + x – 3] / [(x – 3) (x + 5)] = 1 / 3 [2x + 2] / [(x – 3) (x + 5)] = 1 / 36x + 6 = x^{2} + 2x – 15

x^{2} + 2x – 15 – 6x – 6 = 0

x^{2} – 4x – 21 = 0

(x – 7) (x – 3) = 0

x = 7 or x = -3.

The value of x cannot be negative.

So, the present age of Rehman is 7 years.

[b]Sum = (n / 2) (2a + [n – 1]d)

98 = (7 / 2) (2a + 6d)

28 = 2a + 6d

14 = a + 3d —- (1)

390 = (15 / 2) (2a + [15 – 1] d)

52 = 2a + 14d

26 = a + 7d —- (2)

On solving the equations (1) and (2),

a = 5 and d = 3

Sum to 10 terms

= [10 / 2] * (2 * 5 + (10 – 1) * 3

= 5 (10 + 27)

= 37 * 5

= 185

**Question 13: **

**[a] Solve the quadratic polynomial p(x) = x ^{2 }– x – 6 by graphical method.**

**OR**

**[b] The perimeter of a rectangular plot is 32m. If the length is increased by 2m and the breadth is decreased by 1m, then the area of the plot remains the same. Find the length and breadth of the plot.**

**Solution:**

^{2}– x – 6

y intercept at x = 0

y = 0 – 0 – 6 = – 6

x intercept at y = 0

x^{2} – x – 6 = 0

x^{2} – 3x + 2x – 6 = 0

x (x – 3) + 2 (x – 3) = 0

(x – 3) (x + 2) = 0

x = 3, -2

[b] Let the dimensions of the plot be: length = ‘l’ m and breadth = ‘b’ mPerimeter = 32 m ( given )

2(l + b) = 32

l + b = 16 — ( 1 )

If length is increased by 2 m and the breadth is decreased by 1 m, the area of the plot remains the same .

( l + 2 ) ( b – 1 ) = lb

lb – l + 2b – 2 = lb

– l + 2b = 2 — ( 2 )

Add equations ( 1 ) and ( 2 ),

3b = 18

b = 18 /3

b = 6

Put b = 6 in equation ( 1 ),

l + b = 16

l + 6 = 16

l = 10

Therefore, length of the rectangle plot = l = 10m and breadth = b = 6 m.
