#### QUESTION PAPER CODE 1018

**Question 1[a]: The function f:N → N, given by f (x) = 2x is**

(a) one-one but onto (b) one-one but not onto

(c) not one-one not onto (d) onto but not one-one

**Answer: [b]**

**[b]: Find g o f (x), if f (x) = 8x ^{3} and g (x) = x^{1/3}.**

**Solution: **

g o f (x) = g (f ( x))

= g (8x^{3})

= (8x^{3})^{⅓}

= 2x

**[c]: Let * be an operation such that a * b = LCM of a and b defined on the set A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}. Is * a binary operation? Justify your answer.**

**Solution: **

a * b = LCM of a and b

a, b ∈ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

Let a = 2, b = 3

a * b = 2 * 3 = LCM of 2 and 3 is 6

Since the element 6 doesn’t exist in the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, * is not a binary operation.

**Question 2[a]: If xy < 1, tan ^{-1} x + tan^{-1} y is ______.**

**Solution:**

tan^{-1} [(x + y) / (1 – xy)]

**[b] Prove that 2 tan ^{-1} (1 / 2) + tan^{-1} (1 / 7) = tan^{-1} (31 / 17)**

**Solution:**

2 tan^{-1} (1 / 2) + tan^{-1} (1 / 7)

= tan^{-1} [(2 * (1 / 2)) / (1 – (1 / 2)^{2}] + tan^{-1} (1 / 7)

= tan^{-1} (4 / 3) + tan^{-1} (1 / 7)

= tan^{-1} [((4 / 3) + (1 / 7)) / (1 – (4 / 3)^{ }(1 / 7)]

= tan^{-1} [(31 * 21) / (21 * 17)]

= tan^{-1} (31 / 17)

**Solution:**

**Question 5[a]: Find all the points of discontinuity of f, where f is defined by **

**Solution:**

LHL = lim _{x→2-} f (x) = lim _{x→2-} 2x + 3 = 7

RHL = lim _{x→2+} f (x) = lim _{x→2+} 2x – 3 = 1

lim _{x→2-} f (x) ≠ lim _{x→2+} f (x)

LHL ≠ RHL

2 is a point of discontinuity.

**[b] If e ^{x-y} = x^{y}, then prove that dy / dx = log x / (log ex)^{2}.**

**Solution:**

(x – y) log e = y log x

x – y = y log x

x = y log x + y

x = y (log x + 1)

y = x / (log x + 1)

dy / dx = (1 + log x – 1) / (1 + log x)^{2} = log x / (1 + log x)^{2}

= log x / (log ex)^{2}

**Question 6[a]: The slope of the tangent to the curve given by x = 1 – cos θ, y = θ – sin θ at θ = 𝛑 / 2 is **

(i) 0 (ii) -1 (iii) 1 (iv) Not defined

**Solution: (ii)**

**[b] Find the intervals in which the function f (x) = x ^{2} – 4x + 6 is strictly decreasing.**

**Solution:**

f ‘ (x) = 2x – 4

f ‘ (x) = 0

2x – 4 = 0

x = 2

The intervals are (-∞, 2) and (2, ∞).

f (x) is decreasing at (-∞, 2).

**[c] Find the minimum and maximum value, if any, of the function f (x) = (2x – 1) ^{2} + 3.**

**Solution:**

f (x) = (2x – 1)^{2} + 3

f ‘ (x) = 4 (2x – 1)

f ‘’ (x) = 8

f ‘ (x) = 0

2x – 1 = 0

x = 1 / 2

f (x) has minimum value at x = 1 / 2.

**OR**

**[a] Which of the following functions has neither local maxima nor local minima?**

(i) f (x) = x^{2} + x (ii) f (x) = log x

(iii) f (x) = x^{3} – 3x + 3 (iv) f (x) = 3 + |x|

**Solution: **[ii]

**[b] Find the equation of the tangent to the curve y = 3x ^{2} at (1, 1).**

**Solution:**

y = 3x^{2}

dy / dx = 6x

Slope at (1, 1) = 6

Equation of the tangent is y – y_{1} = (dy / dx)_{(1, 1)} (x – x_{1})

y – y_{1} = 6 (x – 1)

y = 6x + 5

**[c] Use differential to approximate √36.6.**

**Solution:**

y = √x

x = 36

Δx = 0.6

dy = (dy / dx) Δx = 1 / 2 * √x

= 1 / 2 * (0.6)

= 0.05

√36.6 = 6 + 0.05 = 6.05

**Question 7[a]: The angle between the vectors a and b such that |a| = |b| = √2 and a . b = 1 is **

(i) 𝛑 / 2 (ii) 𝛑 / 3 (iii) 𝛑 / 4 (iv) 0

**Solution: [ii] **

**[b] Find the vector along a – b where a = i + 3j – k and b = 3i + 2j + k.**

**Solution:**

Unit vector along a – b = (a – b) / |a – b|

a – b = -2i + j – 2k

|a – b| = √9 = 3

Unit vector = (1 / 3) (-2i + j – 2k)

**Question 8[a]: If the points A and B are (1, 2, -1) and (2, 1, -1) respectively, then AB is **

(i) i + j (ii) i – j (iii) 2i + j – k (iv) i + j + k

**[b] Find the value of ƛ for which the vectors 2i – 4j + 5k, i – ƛj + k and 3i + 2j – 5k are coplanar.**

**Solution:**

= 0

2 (5ƛ – 2) + 4 (- 5 – 3) + 5 (2 + 3ƛ) = 0

ƛ = 26 / 25

**[c] Find the angle between the vectors a = i + j – k and b = i – j + k.**

**Solution:**

cos θ = (a . b) / |a| |b|

(a . b) = -1

|a| = √3

|b| = √3

cos θ = – 1 / 3

θ = cos^{-1} (- 1 / 3)

**Question 9[a]: Prove that ∫cos ^{2} x dx = (x / 2) + (sin 2x / 4) + c.**

**Solution:**

cos^{2} x = (1 + cos 2x) / 2

∫cos^{2} x dx = (1 / 2) ∫(1 + cos 2x) dx

= (1 / 2) [x + (sin 2x / 2)] dx

**[b] Find ∫dx / √2x – x ^{2}.**

**Solution:**

2x – x^{2} = – (x^{2} – 2x)

= – (x^{2} – 2x + 1 – 1)

= – [(x – 1)^{2} – 1^{2}]

= 1 – (x – 1)^{2}

∫dx / √2x – x^{2} = ∫dx / √1 – (x – 1)^{2}

= sin^{-1} (x – 1) + c

**[c] Find ∫x cos x dx.**

**Solution:**

∫x cos x dx

= x sin x – ∫ sin x dx

= x sin x + cos x + c

**Question 10[a]: Evaluate ∫ _{0}^{𝛑} log (1 + cos x) dx.**

**Solution:**

I = ∫_{0}^{𝛑} log (1 + cos x) dx

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} log (1 + cos [𝛑 – x] dx)

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} log (1 – cos x) dx

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} log 2 sin^{2} [x / 2] dx

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} (log 2 + 2 log sin (x / 2)) dx

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} log 2 dx + 2 ∫_{0}^{𝛑} log sin (x / 2) dx

Put x / 2 = t

dx = 2 dt

When x = 0, t = 0 and x = 𝛑, t = 𝛑 / 2

I = log 2 (x)_{0}^{𝛑} + 2 ∫_{0}^{𝛑/2} log sin t * 2 dt

= log 2 (𝛑 – 0) + 4 (- 𝛑 / 2 log 2)

= – 𝛑 log 2

**OR**

**[b] Find ∫ _{0}^{5} (x + 1) dx as limit of sum.**

**Solution: **

∫_{a}^{b} f (x) dx = lim _{h→0}^{ }h [f (a) + f (a + h) + ….. + f (a + (n – 1)h]

∫_{0}^{5} (x + 1) dx = lim _{h→0}^{ }h [1 + (1 + h) + (1 + 2h) + ….. 1 + (n – 1)h]

= lim _{h→0}^{ }h [n + h (1 + 2 + 3 ….. + (n – 1))

= lim _{h→0}^{ }h [n + h * n (n – 1) / 2]

= lim _{h→0}^{ } [nh + (n^{2}h^{2} – h^{2}n) / 2]

= lim _{h→0}^{ }[nh + nh (nh – h) / 2]

= lim _{h→0}^{ }(5 + [5 – h]5 / 2]

= 35 / 2

**Question 11[a]: The area bounded by the curve y = f (x), above the x-axis, between x = a and x = b is**

(i) ∫_{f(a)}^{b} y dy (ii) ∫_{a}^{f(b)} x dx (iii) ∫_{a}^{b} x dy (iv) ∫_{a}^{b} y dx

Solution: [iv]

**[b] Find the area of the circle x ^{2} + y^{2} = 4 using integration.**

**Solution:**

Area of the shaded region = ∫_{0}^{2} y dx

= ∫_{0}^{2} √4 – x^{2} dx

= [(x / 2) √4 – x^{2} + (4 / 2) sin^{-1} (x / 2) dx

= (4 / 2) sin^{-1} (1)

= 2 * (𝛑 / 2)

= 4𝛑

**Question 12[a]: y = cos x + b sin x is the solution of the differential equation. **

(i) d^{2}y / dx^{2} + y = 0 (ii) d^{2}y / dx^{2} – y = 0

(iii) dy / dx + y = 0 (iv) dy / dx + x (dy / dx) = 0

**Solution: [i] **

**[b] Find the solution of the differential equation x (dy / dx) + 2y = x ^{2} (x ≠ 0) given that y = 0 when x = 1.**

**Solution: **

(dy / dx) + (2y / x) = x

P = (2 / x), Q = x

IF = e^{∫P dx}

= e^{(2 log x)}

= x^{2}

The solution is y = x^{2} = ∫x * x^{2} dx = ∫x^{3} dx

yx^{2} = x^{4} / 4 + c

When x = 1, y = 0,

0 = (1 / 4) + c

c = (- 1 / 4)

The particular solution is yx^{2} = (x^{4} / 4) + (- 1 / 4)

**Question 13[a]: Find the shortest distance between the lines r = i + j + ƛ (2i – j + k) and r = 2i + j – k + 𝛍 (3i – 5j + 2k).**

**Solution:**

Shortest distance = |[(a_{2} – a_{1}) . (b_{1} – b_{2})] / |[b_{1} x b_{2}]||

a_{1} = i + j

a_{2} = 2i + j – k

b_{1} = 2i – j + k

b_{2} = 3i – 5j + 2k

(a_{2} – a_{1}) = i – k

_{1}x b

_{2}] = 3i – j + 7k

|[b_{1} x b_{2}]| = √59

Shortest distance = 10 / √59

2x + 3y + 4z = 7

**[b] A card from a pack of 52 cards is lost. From the remaining cards of the pack, 2 cards are drawn and are found to be diamonds. Find the probability of the lost card being a diamond.**

**Solution: **

E_{1}: The lost card is a diamond.

E_{2}: The lost card is not a diamond**.**

A: Selecting 2 diamonds from the remaining cards

P (E_{1}) = 13 / 52 = 1 / 4

P (E_{2}) = 39 / 52 = 3 / 4

P (A / E_{1}) = ^{12}C_{2} / ^{51}C_{2} = 12 * 11 / 51 * 50

P (A / E_{2}) = ^{13}C_{2} / ^{51}C_{2} = 13 * 12 / 51 * 50

P (E_{1} / A) = [P (E_{1}) * P (A / E_{1})] / [P (E_{1}) * P (A / E_{1})] + [P (E_{2}) * P (A / E_{2})]

= [(1 / 4) * [12 * 11 / 51 * 50]] / [(1 / 4) * (12 * 11 / 51 * 50) + (3 / 4) * (13 * 12 / 51 * 50)]

= 132 / 600

= 11 / 50
