### Question 8:

(a) Calculate the mean of the following distribution using step deviation method.

 Marks 0-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 40-50 50-60 No. of Students 10 9 25 30 16 10

(b) (c) The printed price of an air conditioner is ₹ 45,000/-. The wholesaler allows a discount of 10% to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper sells the article to the customer at a discount of 5% of the marked price. Sales tax (under VAT) is charged at the rate of 12% at every stage. Find:

(i) VAT paid by the shopkeeper to the government.

(ii) The total amount paid by the customer inclusive of tax.

(a) (b) (c) ### Question 9:

(a) In the figure given, O is the centre of the circle. ∠DAE = 700. Find giving suitable reasons, the measure of:

(i) ∠BCD

(ii) ∠BOD

(iii) ∠OBD (b) A(-1, 3) , B(4, 2) and C(3, -2) are the vertices of a triangle.

(i) Find the coordinates of the centroid G of the triangle.

(ii) Find the equation of the line through G and parallel to AC.

(c) Prove that (a) ∠DAE = ∠BCD (ext. ∠ of a cyclic quad. is equal to interior opp.∠ )

(i) ∠DAE = ∠BCD = 700

(ii) ∠BOD = 2 ∠BCD = 140ᵒ (angle at centre is twice the angle on other segment)

(iii) In ΔOBD, OB = OD (radii of circle)

∴ ∠OBD = ∠ODB = 𝑥ᵒ (say) (at least 2 correct reasons)

𝑥ᵒ + 𝑥ᵒ + 140ᵒ = 180ᵒ (sum of angles of a triangle = 1800)

∴ ∠OBD = 𝑥ᵒ = 20ᵒ

(b) (c) ### Question 10:

(a) The sum of the ages of Vivek and his younger brother Amit is 47 years. The product of their ages in years is 550. Find their ages.

(b) The daily wages of 80 workers in a project are given below.

 Wages (in ₹) 400-450 450-500 500-550 550-600 600-650 650-700 700-750 No. of Workers 2 6 12 18 24 13 5

Use a graph paper to draw an ogive for the above distribution. (Use a scale of 2 cm = ₹ 50 on x-axis and 2 cm = 10 workers on y-axis). Use your ogive to estimate:

(i) the median wage of the workers.

(ii) the lower quartile wage of workers.

(iii) the number of workers who earn more than ₹ 625 daily.

(a) Let age of Vivek be x years

And of Amit 47 – x years

∴ x (47 – x) = 550

47x – x2 = 550

Or

x2 – 47x + 550 = 0

(x – 25) (x – 22) = 0

∴ x = 25 or age = 22 (not possible)

∴ Vivek’s age is x = 25 years, and Amit’s age is 47 – 25 = 22 years

(b) c.f: 2, 8, 20, 38, 62, 75,80

(For smooth S curve plotted with upper boundries)

(i) Median =Nth/2 term. = 40th term =  605

(ii) Q1 = N/4th term = 20th term =  550

(iii) No. of workers who earn more than  625 = 80-52 = 28(±3) ### Question 11:

(a) The angles of depression of two ships A and B as observed from the top of a lighthouse 60 m high are 60o and 45o respectively. If the two ships are on the opposite sides of the light house, find the distance between the two ships. Give your answer correct to the nearest whole number.

(b) PQR is a triangle. S is a point on the side QR of ΔPQR such that ∠PSR = ∠QPR.

Given QP = 8 cm, PR = 6 cm and SR = 3 cm (i) Prove ΔPQR ∼ ΔSPR

(ii) Find the length of QR and PS

(iii) (c) Mr. Richard has a recurring deposit account in a bank for 3 years at 7.5% p. a. Simple interest. If he gets ` 8325 as interest at the time of maturity, find:
