### September 3 Shift 2 - Maths

1. If x3dy+xy dx = x2dy+2y dx; y(2) = e and x>1, then y(4) is equal to:

1. a) √e/2
2. b) (3/2)√e
3. c) (1/2)+√e
4. d) (3/2)+√e

Solution:

1. (x3-x2)dy = (2-x) ydx

$\int \frac{dy}{y}=\int \frac{2-x}{x^{2}(x-1)}dx$

$\int \frac{dy}{y}=-\int \frac{x-2}{x^{2}(x-1)}dx$

$\int \frac{dy}{y}=-\int (\frac{p}{x}+\frac{q}{x^{2}}+\frac{r}{x-1})dx$

p = 1, q = 2, r = -1

$\int \frac{dy}{y}=\int \frac{-1}{x}dx-\int\frac{2}{x^{2}}dx-\int\frac{-1}{x-1}dx$

ln|y| = -ln x+(2/x)+ln (x-1)+c

x = 2, y = e

1 = 1-ln 2+c

⇒ c = ln 2

ln|y| = (2/x)-ln |x|+ln |x-1|ln 2

put x = 4

ln|y| = (1/2)-2ln 2+ ln 3+ ln 2

ln y = ln(3/2)+(1/2)

y = (3/2)×e1/2

= (3/2)√e

2. Let A be a 3×3 matrix such that adj A = $\begin{bmatrix} 2 & -1 &1 \\ -1 &0 &2 \\ 1 & -2 & -1 \end{bmatrix}$ and B = adj(adj A) . If |A| = λ and |(B-1)T| = μ, then the ordered pair, (|λ|,μ) is equal to:

1. a) (9, 1/81)
2. b) (9, 1/9)
3. c) (3, 1/81)
4. d) (3, 81)

Solution:

1. adj A = $\begin{bmatrix} 2 & -1 &1 \\ -1 &0 &2 \\ 1 & -2 & -1 \end{bmatrix}$

⇒ |A2| = 9

⇒ |A| = 3 = |λ| and |A| = -3 = |λ|

|B| = ((|A|)(3-1))2 = |A|4 = 34 = 81

|(BT)-1| = 1/|(BT)|

= 1/|B|= 1/81=μ

Hence |λ|,μ = (3, 1/81)

3. Let a, b, cεR be such that a2+b2+c2 = 1, if a cos θ = b cos(θ+2π/3) = c cos(θ+4π/3), where θ = π/9, then the angle between the vectors $a\hat{i}+b\hat{j}+c\hat{k}$ and $b\hat{i}+c\hat{j}+a\hat{k}$ is:

1. a) π/2
2. b) 2π/3
3. c) π/9
4. d) 0

Solution:

1. cos α = $\frac{\vec{p}.\vec{q}}{\left | p \right |\left | q \right |}$

= (ab+bc+ca)/a2+b2+c2

= (ab+bc+ca)/1

cos α = ab+bc+ca

cos α = abc[(1/a)+(1/b)+(1/c)] ..(i)

a cos200 = b cos(1400) = c cos(2600) = λ

⇒ (1/a) = cos 200

(1/b) = cos 1400

(1/c) = cos 2600

Put in (i)

cos α = (abc/λ)(cos 200+ cos 1400+ cos 2600)

cos α = (abc/λ)(cos 200+ 2cos 2000+ cos 600)

cos α = (abc/λ)(cos 200- cos 200)

cos α = 0

α = π/2

4. Suppose f(x) is a polynomial of degree four, having critical points at (-1,0,1). If T = {xεR f(x) = f(0) }, then the sum of squares of all the elements of T is:

1. a) 6
2. b) 2
3. c) 8
4. d) 4

Solution:

1. f’(x) = k(x+1)x(x-1)

f’(x) = k[ x3-x]

Integrating both sides

f(x) = k[(x4/4)- (x2/2)]+c

f(0) = c

f(x) = f(0) ⇒ k[(x4/4)- (x2/2)]+c = c

⇒ k(x2/4)(x2-2) = 0

⇒ x = 0, √2, -√2

Sum of squares of all elements = 02+(√2)2+(-√2)2

= 4

5. If the value of the integral $\int_{0}^{\frac{1}{2}}\frac{x^{2}}{(1-x^{2})^{\frac{3}{2}}}dx$ is k/6, then k is equal to:

1. a) 2√3+π
2. b) 3√2+π
3. c) 3√2-π
4. d) 2√3-π

Solution:

1. $\int_{0}^{\frac{1}{2}}\frac{x^{2}}{(1-x^{2})^{\frac{3}{2}}}dx$

Put x = sinθ

$\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi }{6}}\frac{\sin ^{2}\theta }{\cos ^{3}\theta }\cos \theta .d\theta$

= $\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi }{6}}\tan ^{2} \theta .d\theta = [\tan \theta -\theta]_{0}^{\frac{\pi }{6}}$

⇒ (1/√3)-(π/6) = k/6

(2√3-π)/6 = k/6

k = 2√3-π

6. If the term independent of x in the expansion of ((3/2)x2 -(1/3x))9 is k, then 18 k is equal to:

1. a) 5
2. b) 9
3. c) 7
4. d) 11

Solution:

1. Tr+1 = $^{^{9}}C_{r}\left ( \frac{3}{2}x^{2} \right )^{9-r}\left ( \frac{-1}{3x} \right )^{r}$

= $^{^{9}}C_{r}\frac{3^{9-r}}{2^{9-r}}(\frac{-1}{3})^{r}x^{18-3r}$

18-3r = 0

⇒ r = 6

= $^{^{9}}C_{r}(\frac{3^{-3}}{2^{3}})=k$

⇒ 7/18 = k

⇒ 18k = 7

7. If a triangle ABC has vertices A(-1,7), B(-7,1) and C(5,-5), then its orthocentre has coordinates;

1. a) (-3,3)
2. b) (-3/5, 3/5)
3. c) (3/5, -3/5)
4. d) (3,-3)

Solution:

1. mAH. mBC = -1

⇒ ((y-7)/(x+1))(1+5)/(-7-5) = -1

⇒ 2x-y+9 = 0 …..(i)

and mBH. mAC = -1

((y-1)/(x+7))(7--5)/(-1-5) = -1

x-2y+9 = 0 .....(ii)

Solving equation (i) and (ii) we get

(x, y) = (-3,3)

8. Let e1 and e2 be the eccentricities of the ellipse, (x2/25)+(y2/b2) = 1 (b<5) and the hyperbola, (x2/16)-(y2/b2) = 1 respectively satisfying e1e2 = 1. If α and β are the distances between the foci of the ellipse and the foci of the hyperbola respectively, then the ordered pair (α,β) is equal to:

1. a) (8,12)
2. b) (24/5,10)
3. c) (20/3,12)
4. d) (8,10)

Solution:

1. α = 10e1

b2 = 25(1-e12)

β = 8e2

b2 = 16(e22-1)

(e1e2)2 = 1

(1-b2/25)( 1+b2/16) = 1

⇒ 1+(b2/16)-(b2/25)-(b4/400) = 1

⇒ (9b2/16×25)-(b4/400) = 0

⇒ 9b2-b4 = 0

⇒ b2(9-b2) = 0, b ≠ 0

Therefore, 9-b2 = 0

b2 = 9

e1 = 4/5

α = 2ae1

= 10×4/5

= 8

e2 = 5/4

β = 2ae2

= 8×5/4

= 10

(α, β) = (8, 10)

9. If z1, z2 are complex numbers such that Re(z1) = |z1-1|, Re(z2) = |z2-1| and arg (z1-z2) = π/6, then Im(z1+z2) is equal to:

1. a) 2√3
2. b) 2/√3
3. c) 1/√3
4. d) √3/2

Solution:

1. z1 = x1+iy1

z2 = x2+iy2

x12 = (x1-1)2+y12

⇒ y12-2x1+1 = 0 ..(i)

x22 = (x2-1)2+y22

⇒ y22-2x2+1 = 0 ..(ii)

From equation (ii)-(i)

(y12-y22)+2(x2-x1) = 0

(y1+y2)(y1-y2) = 2(x1-x2)

(y1+y2) = 2(x1-x2)/ (y1-y2)

arg (z1-z2) = π/6

tan-1(y1-y2)/(x1-x2) = π/6

⇒ (y1-y2)/(x1-x2) = 1/√3

So y1+y2 = 2√3

10. The set of all real values of λ for which the quadratic equations, (λ2+1)x2-4λx+2 = 0 always have exactly one root in the interval (0,1) is:

1. a) (-3,-1)
2. b) (2,4)
3. c) (1,3)
4. d) (0,2)

Solution:

1. f(0) f(1) ≤ 0

⇒ (2) [λ2-4λ +3] ≤0

(λ-1)(λ- 3) ≤0

⇒ λ ε [1, 3]

at λ = 1

2x2 -4x+2 = 0

⇒ (x-1)2 = 0

x = 1, 1

⇒λ ε (1, 3]

11. Let the latus rectum of the parabola y2 = 4x be the common chord to the circles C1 and C2 each of them having radius 2√5. Then, the distance between the centres of the circles C1 and C2 is:

2. b) 8√5
3. c) 4√5
4. d) 12

Solution:

1. C1C2 = 2C1A

(C1A)2 + 4 = ( 2√5)2

C1A = 4

C1C2 = 8

2. b) (4,0,1)
3. c) (4,0,-1)
4. d) (0,1,-1)

Solution:

1. a = 2, b = -6

c = 4

Equation of plane is

2(x-3)+(-6)(y -1)+ 4(z-1) = 0

⇒ 2x-6y+4z = 4 passes through (4, 0, -1).

13. $\lim_{x\to a}\frac{(a+2x)^{\frac{1}{3}}-(3x)^{\frac{1}{3}}}{(3a+x)^{\frac{1}{3}}-(4x)^{\frac{1}{3}}}$ is equal to:

1. a) 7/10
2. b) 9/10
3. c) √(3/5)
4. d) 4/5

Solution:

1. Standard deviation is free from shifting of origin

S.D = √variance

= √[(9/10)-(3/10)2]

= √[(9/10)-(9/100)]

= √(81/100)

= 9/10

is :

1. a) 134/104
2. b) 121/104
3. c) 135/104
4. d) 50/104

Solution:

1. Total case = 9(104)

First case : Choose two non-zero digits = 9C2

Now, number of 5-digit numbers containing both digits = 25-2

Second case : Choose one non-zero and one zero as digit = 9C1

Number of 5-digit numbers containing one non-zero and one zero both = 24-1.

fav. case = 9C2(25-2)+ 9C1(24-1)

= 1080+135

= 1215

Probability = 1215/9×104

= 135/104

16. If $\int \sin ^{-1}\left ( \sqrt{\frac{x}{1+x}} \right )dx= A(x)\tan ^{-1}(\sqrt{x})+B(x)+C$ , where C is a constant of integration, then the ordered pair (A(x), B(x)) can be:

Solution:

1. Given $\int \sin ^{-1}\left ( \sqrt{\frac{x}{1+x}} \right )dx= A(x)\tan ^{-1}(\sqrt{x})+B(x)+C$

∫tan-1√x. 1 dx

Here tan-1√x is the first function and 1 dx is the second function.

Integrating we get

(tan-1√x)x-∫(x/1+x)×(1/2√x)dx

Put x = t2

dx = 2t dt

(tan-1√x)x-∫(x/1+x)×(1/2√x)dx = x(tan-1√x)- ∫(t2)(2tdt)/(1+t2)2t

= x(tan-1√x)-t+tan-1t+c

= x(tan-1√x)-√x+tan-1√x+c

= tan-1√x(x+1)-√x+c

A(x) = x+1

B(x) = -√x

Solution:

1. $20+19\frac{3}{5}+19\frac{1}{5}+18\frac{4}{5}+...$

Sn = 488

⇒ (n/2)(2×20+(n-1)(-2/5)) = 488

⇒ 20n-(n2/5)+(n/5) = 488

⇒ 100n-n2+n = 2440

⇒ n2-101n+2440 = 0

⇒ n = 61 or 40

For n = 40, Tn = 20+39(-2/5) = +ve

n = 61, Tn = 20+60(-2/5) =20-24 = -4
