September 5 Shift 1 – Maths

1. If the volume of a parallelopiped, whose coterminuous edges are given by the vectors

$$\begin{array}{l}\vec{a}=\hat{i}+\hat{j}+n\hat{k}\end{array}$$
,
$$\begin{array}{l}\vec{b}=2\hat{i}+4\hat{j}-n\hat{k}\end{array}$$
, and
$$\begin{array}{l}\vec{c}=\hat{i}+n\hat{j}+3\hat{k}\end{array}$$
(n
$$\begin{array}{l}\geq\end{array}$$
0), is 158 cu. units, then:

a)

$$\begin{array}{l}\vec{a}.\vec{c}=17\end{array}$$

b)
$$\begin{array}{l}\vec{b}.\vec{c}=10\end{array}$$

c) n = 9
d) n = 7

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & 1 &n \\ 2 & 4& -n\\ 1 & n& 3 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$
= 158

(12+n2)-(6+n)+n(2n-4) = 158

3n2-5n+6-158 = 0

3n2-5n-152 = 0

3n2-24n+19n-152 = 0

(3n+19)(n-8) = 0

⇒ n = 8

$$\begin{array}{l}\vec{b}.\vec{c}=10\end{array}$$

2. A survey shows that 73% of the persons working in an office like coffee, whereas 65% like tea. If x denotes the percentage of them, who like both coffee and tea, then x cannot be:

a) 63
b) 54
c) 38
d) 36

C → Coffee and T → Tea

n(C) = 73, n(T) = 65

n(coffee) = 73/100

n(tea) = 65/100

n(T∩C) = x/100

n(C∪T) = n(C)+n(T)-x

$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
100

= 73+65-x

$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
100

⇒ x

$$\begin{array}{l}\geq\end{array}$$
38

⇒ 73-x

$$\begin{array}{l}\geq\end{array}$$
0

⇒ x

$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
73

⇒ 65-x

$$\begin{array}{l}\geq\end{array}$$
0

⇒ x

$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
65

38

$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
x
$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
65

x = 36

x

$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$
min(n(C), n(T))
$$\begin{array}{l}\geq\end{array}$$
38
$$\begin{array}{l}\leq\end{array}$$

3. The mean and variance of 7 observations are 8 and 16, respectively. If five observations are 2,4,10,12,14, then the absolute difference of the remaining two observations is:

a) 1
b) 4
c) 3
d) 2

Var(x) =

$$\begin{array}{l}\sum \frac{x_{i}^{2}}{n}-(\bar{x})^{2}\end{array}$$

16 = (x12+ x22+ x42+ x52+ x62+ x72)/7 -64

80×7 = x12+ x22+ x32+…+ x72

Now, x62+ x72 = 560-(x12+…x52)

x62+x72 = 560-(4+16+100+144+196)

x62+x72 = 100 ..(i)

Now, (x1+x2+…+x7)/7 = 8

x6+x7 = 14

from (i) and (ii)

(x6+x7)2-2x6x7 = 100

2x6x7 = 96

⇒ x6x7 = 48 ..(iii)

Now, |x6-x7| = √((x6+x7)2-4x6x7)

= √(196-192)

= 2

4. If 210+29×31+28×32+…..+2×39+310 = S-211, then S is equal to:

a) 311
b) (311/2)+210
c) 2×311
d) 311-212

Let S’ = 210+29×31+ 28×32+—–+2×39+310 ..(i)

3×S’/2 = 29×31+28×32+…+310+311/2 ..(ii)

Equation (i) – (ii)

-S’/2 = 210-311/2

S’ = 311-211

Now S’= S-211

S = 311

5. If 32 sin2α-1,14 and 34-2 sin2α are the first three terms of an A.P. for some α , then the sixth term of this A.P. is:

a) 65
b) 81
c) 78
d) 66

28 = 32sin2α-1+34-2 sin2α

28 = 9sin2α/3 + 81/9sin2α

Let 9sin2α = t

28 = (t/3)+(81/t)

t2-84t+243 = 0

t2-81t-3t+243 = 0

t(t -81)-3(t-81) = 0

(t -81)(t-3) = 0

t = 81, 3

9sin2α = 92 or 3

sin2α = 1/2, 2 (rejected)

First term, a = 32sin2α-1

a = 1

Second term = 14

Common difference, d = 13

T6 = a+5d

T6 = 1+5×13 = 66

6. If the common tangent to the parabolas, y2 = 4x and x2 = 4y also touches the circle, x2+y2 = c2, then c is equal to:

a) 1/2
b) 1/4
c) 1/√2
d) 1/2√2

y = mx+1/m

x2 = 4(mx+1/m)

x2 -4mx-4/m = 0

D = 0

16m2+16/m = 0

16(m3+1)/m = 0

m = -1

⇒ y+x = -1

Now, |-1/√2| = |c|

c =

$$\begin{array}{l}\pm\end{array}$$
1/√2

7. If the minimum and the maximum values of the function f: [π/4, π/2] → R defined by f(θ) =

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} -\sin ^{2}\theta & -1-\sin ^{2}\theta & 1\\ -\cos ^{2}\theta &-1- \cos ^{2}\theta & 1\\ 12 & 10 & -2 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$
are m and M respectively, then the ordered pair (m,M) is equal to :

a) (0,4)
b) (-4,0)
c) (-4,4)
d) (0,2√2)

f(θ) =

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} -\sin ^{2}\theta & -1-\sin ^{2}\theta & 1\\ -\cos ^{2}\theta &-1- \cos ^{2}\theta & 1\\ 12 & 10 & -2 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

C1 → C1-C2

C3 → C3+C2

=

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & -1-\sin ^{2}\theta & -\sin ^{2}\theta \\ 1 &-1- \cos ^{2}\theta & -\cos ^{2}\theta \\ 2& 10 & 8 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

C2 → C2-C3

=

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & -1 & -\sin ^{2}\theta \\ 1 &-1 & -\cos ^{2}\theta \\ 2& 2 & 8 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

= 1(2cos2 θ-8)+(8+2cos2 θ) -4sin2θ

f(θ) = 4cos 2θ

8. Let λ∈R. the system of linear equations

2x1-4x2+λx3 = 1

x1-6x2+x3 = 2

λx1-10x2+4x3 = 3

is inconsistent for:

a) exactly two values of λ
b) exactly one negative value of λ.
c) every value of λ.
d) exactly one positive value of λ.

D =

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 2 & -4 & \lambda \\ 1& -6& 1\\ \lambda &-10 & 4 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

= 2(3λ+ 2)( λ-3)

D1 = -2(λ-3)

D2 = -2(λ+1)( λ-3)

D3 = –2(λ-3)

When λ = 3, then

D = D1 = D2 = D3 = 0

⇒ Infinite many solution

When λ = –2/3 then D1, D2, D3 none of them is zero so equations are inconsistent

λ = –2/3

9. If the point P on the curve, 4x2+5y2 = 20 is farthest from the point Q(0, -4), then PQ2 is equal to:

a) 48
b) 29
c) 21
d) 36

Given ellipse is (x2/5)+(y2/4) = 1

Let point P is (√5 cos θ, 2 sin θ)

(PQ)2 = 5cos2 θ+ 4(sin θ + 2)2

(PQ)2 = cos2θ+ 16 sin θ + 20

(PQ)2 = -sin2θ+ 16 sin θ + 21

= 85 -(sin θ – 8)2

Will be maximum when sin θ = 1

(PQ)2max = 85-49 = 36

10. The product of the roots of the equation 9x2-18|x|+5 = 0 is :

a) 25/81
b) 5/9
c) 5/27
d) 25/9

Let |x| = t

9t2-18t +5 = 0

9t2 -15t -3t+5 = 0

(3t -5)(3t-1) = 0

|x| = 5/3, 1/3

⇒ x = 5/3, -5/3, 1/3, -1/3

⇒ Product = 25/81

11. If y = y(x) is the solution of the differential equation ((5+ex)/(2+y))(dy/dx)+ex = 0 satisfying y(0) = 1, then a value of y(loge13) is:

a) 1
b) 0
c) 2
d) -1

((5+ex)/(2+y))(dy/dx) = -ex

∫dy/(2+y) = ∫-e-x/(ex+5) dx

ln (y+2) = -ln(ex+5) + C

(y+2) (ex+5) = C

Since y(0) = 1

⇒ C = 18

y+2 = 18/ex+5

at x = ln 13

y+2 = 18/(13+5) = 1

y = -1

12. If S is the sum of the first 10 terms of the series tan-1(1/3) + tan-1(1/7) + tan-1(1/13) + tan-1(1/21) +…, then tan(S) is equal to:

a) 5/11
b) 5/6
c) -6/5
d) 10/11

S =

$$\begin{array}{l}\tan ^{-1}\left ( \frac{1}{1+1\times 2} \right )+\tan ^{-1}\left ( \frac{1}{1+2\times 3} \right )+…\end{array}$$

Tr =

$$\begin{array}{l}\tan ^{-1}\left ( \frac{1}{1+r(r+1)} \right )\end{array}$$

Tr = tan-1(r+1)-tan-1r

T1 = tan-12-tan-11

T2 = tan-13-tan-12

T3 = tan-14-tan-13

T10 = tan-111-tan-110

S = (tan-12-tan-11) + (tan-1 3-tan-12) + (tan-14-tan-13) + ……… + (tan-1 11-tan-110)

S = tan-111-tan-11

= tan-1 [(11-1)/(1+11)]

⇒ tan S = 10/12

= 5/6

13. The value of

$$\begin{array}{l}\int_{\frac{-\pi }{2}}^{\frac{\pi }{2}}\frac{1}{1+e^{\sin x}}dx\end{array}$$

c) π
d) 3π/2

I =

$$\begin{array}{l}\int_{\frac{-\pi }{2}}^{\frac{\pi }{2}}\frac{1}{1+e^{\sin x}}dx\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}\int_{\frac{-\pi }{2}}^{\frac{\pi }{2}}\frac{e^{\sin x}}{1+e^{\sin x}}dx\end{array}$$

⇒ 2I = π

I = π/2

14. If (a, b, c) is the image of the point (1,2,-3) in the line, (x+1)/2 = (y-3)/-2 = z/-1 then a+b+c is:

a) 2
b) 3
c) -1
d) 1 Vector PM and (

$$\begin{array}{l}2\hat{i}-2\hat{j}-\hat{k}\end{array}$$
) are perpendicular.

⇒ (2λ-2)2+(1-2λ)(-2)+(3-λ) (-1) = 0

⇒ 4λ-4+4 λ-2+λ-3 = 0

⇒ 9λ = 9

⇒ λ = 1

⇒ M(1,1,-1)

Now, P’ = 2M-P

= 2(1,1,-1)-(1, 2, -3)

= (1, 0, 1)

a+b+c = 2

15. If the function is twice differentiable, then the ordered pair (k1, k2) is equal to:

a) (1,1)
b) (1,0)
c) (1/2, -1)
d) (1/2, 1)

f(x) is continuous and differentiable

f(π) = f(π) = f(π+)

-1 = -k2

⇒ k2 = 1 f'(π) = f’(π+)

⇒ 0 = 0

So differentiable at x = 0 f’’(π) = f’’(π+)

2k1 = k2

k1 = 1/2

16. If the four complex numbers z,

$$\begin{array}{l}\bar{z}\end{array}$$
,

b) (x˄y) ˅ (∼x˄∼y)
c) (x˄∼y) ˅ (∼x˄∼y)
d) (∼x˄y) ˅ (∼x˄∼y)

As we know

p ↔ q = (p→ q) ˄ (q → p)

∼(p ↔ q) = (p˄∼q) ˅ (∼p˄q)

⇒ so, ∼(x ↔ ∼y) = (x˄y) ˅ (∼x˄∼y)

19. If α is positive root of the equation, p(x) = x2-x-2 = 0, then

Tr+1 = 22Cr (xm)22-r(1/x2)r

= 22Cr (x)22m-mr-2r

Given 22Cr = 1540 = 22C19

⇒ r = 19

Since 22m-rm-2r = 1

⇒ m = (2r+1)/(22-r)

m = 13 (At r = 19)

22. Four fair dice are thrown independently 27 times. Then the expected number of times, at least two dice show up a three or a five, is

P(at 2, 3 or 4) = 4C2 (2/6)2(4/6)2+ 4C3 (2/6)3(4/6)1+ 4C4 (2/6)4

= 6×(1/9)×(4/9)+4×(1/27)×(2/3)+(1/81)

= 33/81

= 11/27

⇒ nP ⇒11

L1 : 2x-y+3 = 0

L2 : 4x-2y+α = 0

L3 : 6x-3y+β = 0

|(α/2)-3|/√5 = 1/√5

⇒ (α/2)-3 = 1, -1

⇒ α = 8, 4

|(β/3)-3|/√5 = 2/√5

⇒ (β/3)-3 = 2, -2

⇒ β = 15, 3

sum of all possible values of α and β = 8+4+15+3 = 30
