Question 12: If sin [sin-1 (1 / 5) + cos-1 x] = 1, then find the value of x.

Solution:

sin [sin-1 (1 / 5) + cos-1 x] = 1

[sin-1 (1 / 5) + cos-1 x] = sin-1 (1)

[sin-1 (1 / 5) + cos-1 x] = 𝛑 / 2

sin-1 (1 / 5) = (𝛑 / 2) – cos-1 x

sin-1 (1 / 5) = sin-1 x + cos-1 x – cos-1 x

sin-1 (1 / 5) = sin-1 x

x = 1 / 5

Question 13: Write the simplest form of tan-1 [(cosx – sinx) / (cosx + sinx)], 0 < x < 𝛑 / 2.

Solution:

tan-1 [(cosx – sinx) / (cosx + sinx)]

= tan-1 [(cosx / cosx – sinx / cosx) / (cosx / cosx + sinx / cosx)]

= tan-1 ([1 – tanx] / [1 + tanx])

= tan-1 tan [𝛑 / 4 – x]

= 𝛑 / 4 – x

Question 14: Find the area of the triangle whose vertices are (-2, -3) (3, 2) and (-1, -8) by using the determinant method.

Solution:

Area of triangle = (1 / 2) [x1 (y2 – y3) + x2 (y3 – y1) + x3 (y1 – y2)]

= (1 / 2) = (1 / 2) = (1 / 2) [3 (-3 x 1 – 1 (-8)) – 2 (-2 x 1 – 1 x (-1)) + 1 [-2 (-8) – (-1) (-3)]

= (1 / 2) [3 (-3 + 8) – 2 (-2 + 1) + 1 (16 – 3)]

= (1 / 2) [15 + 2 + 13]

= 15 square units

Question 15: Differentiate xsinx, x > 0 with respect to x.

Solution:

y = xsinx

Taking log on both sides,

log y = sinx log x

dy / dx = xsinx d (sinx . logx) / dx

dy / dx = y [sinx * (1 / x) + logx * cosx]

= xsinx [sinx * (1 / x) + logx * cosx]

Question 16: Find dy / dx if x2 + xy + y2 = 100.

Solution:

2x + [x (dy / dx) + y] + 2y (dy / dx) = 0

dy / dx = – [2x + y] / (x + 2y)

Question 17: Find the slope of the tangent to the curve y = x3 – x at x = 2.

Solution:

dy / dx = 3x2 – 1

(dy / dx) x = 2 = 11

Question 18: Integrate with respect to x.

Solution:

Put tan-1 x = t

(1 / (1 + x2)) = dt / dx

dx = (1 + x2) dt

I = ∫et / (1 + x2) * (1 + x2) dt

= ∫et dt

= et + c

= etan^{-1} x + c

Question 19: Evaluate ∫23 x dx / x2 + 1.

Solution:

Put t = x2 + 1

x dx = dt / 2

When x = 2, t = 5 and x = 3, t = 10

Question 21: Find the projection of the vector i + 3j + 7k on the vector 7i – j + 8k.

Solution:

a = i + 3j + 7k

b = 7i – j + 8k

The projection of a on b = (a . b) / |b|

= [(i + 3j + 7k) . (7i – j + 8k)] / [√72 + (-1)2 + 82]

= [1 * 7 + 3 * (-1) + 7 * 8] / √49 + 1 + 64

= [7 – 3 + 56] / √144

= 60 / √144

Question 22: Find the area of the parallelogram whose adjacent sides are determined by the vectors a = 3i + j + 4k and b = i – j + k.

Solution:

a = 3i + j + 4k

b = i – j + k

a x b = = i (1 * 1 – 4 (-1)) + j (1 * 4 – 1 * 3) + k ((-1) * 3 – 1 * 1)

= 5i + j – 4k

= √52 + 12 + (-4)2

= √25 + 1 + 16

= √42

Question 23: Find the angle between the planes whose vector equations are r . (2i + 2j – 3k) = 5 and r . (3i – 3j + 5k) = 3.

Solution:

n1 = 2i + 2j – 3k

n2 = 3i – 3j + 5k

n1 . n2 = 6 – 6 – 15 = – 15

|n1| = √4 + 4 + 9 = √17

|n2| = √9 + 9 + 25 = √43

cos θ = ||n1 . n2| / |n1| |n2||

= |(-15) / √17 . √43|

= |(-15) / √731|

= 15 / √731

θ = cos-1 [15 / √731]

0.1 + k + 2k + 2k + k = 1

6k + 0.1 = 1

6k = 1 – 0.1

6k = 0.9

k = 0.9 / 6

k = 0.15

[ii] P (X ≥ 2)

= P (X = 2) + P (X = 3) + P (X = 4)

= 2k + 2k + k

= 5k

= 5 * 0.15

= 0.75

(a, a) ∈ R, ∀ a ∈ A

∴ R is Reflexive.

(a, b) ∈ R

⇒ (b, a) ∈ R

∴ R is symmetric.

(a, b) and (b, c) ∈ R

⇒ (a, c) ∈ R

∴ R is transitive.

∴ R is an equivalence relation.

Question 26: Prove that 2 tan-1 (1 / 2) + tan-1 (1 / 7) = tan-1 (31 / 17).

Solution:

LHS = 2 tan-1 (1 / 2) + tan-1 (1 / 7)

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

= tan-1 {1 / (1 – (1 / 4))} + 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) / (1 – (4 / 21))}

= tan-1 {(31 / 21) / (17 / 21)}

= tan-1 (31 / 17)

Question 27: By using elementary transformation, find the inverse of the matrix .

Solution: Question 28: If x = sint, y = cos2t then prove that dy / dx = – 4 sint.

Solution:

x = sint

dx / dt = cost

y = cos2t

dy / dt = – 2 sin 2t

dy / dx = [dy / dt] / [dx / dt]

= – 2 sin 2t / cos t

= – 2* 2 sint cost / cost

= – 4 sint cost / cost

= – 4 sint

Question 29: Verify Rolle’s theorem for the function f (x) = x2 + 2, x ∈ [- 2, 2].

Solution:

f (x) = x2 + 2, x ∈ [- 2, 2]

A polynomial function is continuous and differentiable everywhere in a real number.

∴ f (x) is continuous on [–2, 2] and differentiable on (–2, 2).

f (x) = x2 + 2

f (–2) = (–2)2 + 2 = 6

f (2) = (2)2 + 2 = 6

∴ f (–2) = f (2) = 6

All the three conditions of Rolle’s theorem are satisfied.

f (x) = x2 + 2

f’(x) = 2x

f’(c) = 2c

0 = 2c

∴ c = 0

∴ –2 < c < 2

Hence, Rolle’s theorem is verified.

Question 30: Find two numbers whose sum is 24 and whose product is as large as possible.

Solution:

Let one number be x and another be (24 – x).

Suppose y denotes the product of the two numbers, then y = x (24 – x) = 24x – x2

On differentiating with respect to x,

dy / dx = 24 – 2x

d2y / dx2 = – 2

Put dy / dx = 0

24 – 2x = 0

24 = 2x

24 / 2 = x

12 = x

At x = 12, the second derivative d2y / dx2 < 0.

The two numbers are 12 and 24 – x = 24 – 12 = 12.

So, 12 and 12 are the two numbers.

Question 31: Find ∫x dx / (x + 1) (x + 2).

Solution:

∫x dx / (x + 1) (x + 2)

By using partial fractions method,

= A / (x + 1) + B / (x + 2)

x = A (x + 2) + B (x + 1)

Put x = – 2,

– 2 = A (- 2 + 2) + B (- 2 + 1)

– 2 = B (- 1)

B = 2

Put x = – 1,

– 1 = A (- 1 + 2) + B (- 1 + 1)

– 1 = A (1) + 0

A = – 1

∫x dx / (x + 1) (x + 2) = – 1 / (x + 1) + 2 / (x + 2)

= ∫- 1 / (x + 1) dx + 2 ∫dx / (x + 2)

= – log |x + 1| + 2 log |x + 2| + c

= – log |x + 1| + log |x + 2|2 + c

= log |(x + 2)2 / (x + 1)| + c

Question 32: Find ∫ex sinx dx.

Solution:

∫ex sinx dx

= sinx ∫ex dx – ∫[d (sinx) / dx ∫ex dx] dx

= ex sinx – ∫cosx ex dx

= ex sinx – [cosx ∫ex dx – ∫[d (cosx) / dx ∫ex dx]] dx

= ex sinx – [cosx ex + ∫sinx ex dx]

= ex sinx – ex cosx – ∫sinx ex dx

2 ∫sinx ex dx = ex sinx – ex cosx + c

= ex / 2 (sinx – cosx) + c / 2

= ex / 2 (sinx – cosx) + c

Question 33: Find the area of the region bounded by the curve y = x2 and the line y = 4.

Solution: The area enclosed by y = x2 and the line y = 4 is given by

Area BOAB = 2 * area of OACO

= 2 ∫04 x dy

= 2 ∫04 √y dy

= 2 [y3/2 / (3 / 2)]04

= (4 / 3) [y3/2]04

= (4 / 3) [43/2 – 03/2]

= (4 / 3) [8 – 0]

= 32 / 3 square units

Question 34: From the differential equation representing the family of curves y = a sin (x + b), where a, b are arbitrary constants.

Solution:

y = a sin (x + b)

dy / dx = a cos (x + b)

d2y / dx2 = – a sin (x + b)

d2y / dx2 + y = 0

Question 35: Show that the position vector of the point P, which divides the line joining the points A and B having position vectors a and b internally in the ratio m:n is [mb + na] / [m + n].

Solution: Let O be the origin then OA = a and OB = b.

Let c be the position vector of C which divides AB internally in the ratio m:n then

AC / CB = m / n

n . AC = m . CB

n . (c – a) = m (b – c)

nc – na = mb – mc

nc + mc = mb + na

c (m + n) = mb + na

c = mb + na / (m + n)

The position vector of C is mb + na / (m + n).

Question 36: Find x such that the four points A (3, 2, 1), B (4, X, 5), C (4, 2, -2) and D (6, 5, -1) are coplanar.

AB = (1, x – 2, 4)

AC = (1, 0, -3) = 0

x = 5

Question 37: Find the equation of the plane through the intersection of the planes 3x – y + 2z – 4 = 0 and the point (2, 2, 1).

Solution:

The equation of the planes 3x – y + 2z – 4 = 0 and x + y + z – 2 = 0.

Equation of the plane which is passing through intersection of the plane is

3x – y + 2z – 4 + ƛ (x + y + z – 2) = 0

(3 + λ) x + (λ –1) y + (2 + λ) z – 4 – 2 λ= 0 ….(i)

Plane passes through (2, 2, 1)

∴ (3 + λ) 2 + (λ –1) 2 + (2 + λ) 1 – 4 – 2λ = 0

6 + 2λ + 2λ –2 + 2 + λ – 4 – 2λ = 0

λ = – 2 / 3

∴ Equation of the plane from equ (i)

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

(7 / 3) x – (5 / 3) y + (4 / 3) z – (8 / 3) = 0

7x – 5y + 4z – 8 = 0

P (E1) = 1 / 2

P (E2) = 1 / 2

P (A / E1) = 1 / 2

P (A / E2) = 1 / 4

P (E1 / A) = [P (E1) * P (A / E1)] / [(P (E1) * P (A / E1)) + (P (E2) * P (A / E2))]

= [(1 / 2) * (1 / 2)] / [(1 / 2) * (1 / 2) + (1 / 2) * (1 / 4)]

Question 39: Let R+ be the set of all non-negative real numbers. Show that the function f : R+ → [4, ∞) given by f (x) = x2 + 4 is invertible and write the inverse of f.

Solution:

f : R+ → [4, ∞) such that f (x) = x2 + 4

Let x, y ∈ R+ such that

f (x) = f (y)

x2 + 4 = y2 + 4

x2 = y2

x = y

So, f is an injective.

Let y ∈ [4, ∞), then (∴ x ∈ R+)

f (x) = x2 + 4

y = x2 + 4

x = √y − 4

Thus for each y ∈ [4, ∞) then exists

x = √y − 4

f (x) = f √y − 4

f √y − 4 = (√y − 4)2 + 2

= y – 4 + 4

= y

So R+ → [4, ∞) is onto

∴ f : R+ → [4, ∞) is a bijection.

Hence it is invertible.

Let f –1 denote the inverse of f (x).

Then f o f –1(x) = x, ∀ x ∈ [4, ∞)

f {f –1 (x)} = x ∀ x ∈ [4, ∞)

{f –1(x)}2 + 4 = x

{f –1(x)}2 = x – 4

f –1(x) = √x − 4 ∀ x ∈ [4, ∞)

Solution:

y = (tan-1 x)2

dy / dx = d (tan-1 x)2 / dx

dy / dx = 2 tan-1 x d (tan-1 x) / dx

= 2 tan-1 x * (1 / (1 + x2))

(1 / (1 + x2)) (dy / dx) = 2 tan-1 x

(1 / (1 + x2)) d2y / dx2 + (dy / dx) (0 + 2x) = 2 / (1 + x2)

(1 + x2)2 d2y / dx2 + 2x (1 + x2) (dy / dx) = 0

Solution:

dV / dt = 12 cm3/sec

Height of the cone = (1 / 6) of the radius of the base of the cone

Volume of the cone = (1 / 3) 𝛑r2h

= (1 / 3) 𝛑 (6h)2 h [h = r / 6]

= 12𝛑h3

dV / dt = d (12𝛑h3) / dt

12 = 12𝛑 . 3h2 (dh / dt)

1 = 𝛑 * 3 (4)2 (dh / dt)

1 / 48𝛑 = dh / dt

dh / dt = 1 / 48𝛑

Let x = a tan θ

dx / dθ = d (a tan θ) / dθ = a sec2 θ

dx = a sec2 θ dθ

∫(1 / x2 + a2) dx

= ∫[1 / a2 tan2 θ + a2] a sec2 θ dθ

= ∫a sec2 θ dθ / a2 [1 + tan2 θ]

= ∫ sec2 θ dθ / a sec2 θ

= (1 / a) ∫dθ

= (1 / a) θ + c

= (1 / a) tan-1 (x / a) + c

∫[1 / x2 – 6x + 13] dx

= ∫[1 / x2 – 6x + 9 + 4] dx

Solution: Area of the region = Area of triangle ABD + Area of trapezium BDEC – Area of triangle AEC

y = 2 (x – 1), y = 4 – x, y = (1 / 2) (x – 1)

Area of triangle ABC = ∫12 2 (x – 1) dx + ∫32 (4 – x) dx – ∫13 (x – 1) / 2 dx

= 2 [x2 / 2 – x]12 + [4x – (x2 / 2)]32 – (1 / 2) [x2 / 2 – x]13

= 2 [(2 – 2) – ((1 / 2) – 1)] + [(4 * 3 – (9 / 2)] – (1 / 2) [((9 / 2) – 3) – ((1 / 2) – 1)]

This is of the form (dy / dx) + Py = Q.

P = 2 / x

Q = x log x

IF = e∫P dx

= e∫2 log x dx

= x2

The solution to the differential equation is

y * IF = ∫IF * Q dx + c

y * x2 = ∫x2 * x log x dx + c

x2 y = ∫x3 log x dx + c

x2 y = log x ∫x3 dx – ∫[d (logx) / dx ∫x3 dx] dx + c

x2y = (x4 / 4) logx – ∫(1 / x) * (x4 / 4) dx + c

y = (x2 / 4) logx – (x2 / 16) + c / x2

Question 47: Derive the equation of the line in space passing through two given points, both in vector and Cartesian form.

Solution: Let a, b and r be the position vectors of the two points A (x1, y1, z1) is (x2, y2, z2) and p (x, y, z) respectively.

AP = OP – OA = r – a

AB = OB – OA = b – a

The point p will lie on the line AB if and only if AP and AB are collinear.

AP = ƛ AB

(r – a) = ƛ (b – a)

r = a + ƛ (b – a) is the vector equation of the line passing through two points.

Let r = xi + yj + zk, a = x1i + y1j + z1k, b = x2i + y2j + z2k, r = a + ƛ (b – a)

xi + yj + zk = x1i + y1j + z1k + ƛ ((x2 – x1) i + (y2 – y1) j + (z2 – z1) k)

= [x1 + ƛ (x2 – x1)] i + [y1 + ƛ (y2 – y1)] j + [z1 + ƛ (z2 – z1)] k

x = x1 + ƛ (x2 – x1)

x – x1 = ƛ (x2 – x1)

ƛ = (x – x1) / (x2 – x1)

y = y1 + ƛ (y2 – y1)

y – y1 = ƛ (y2 – y1)

ƛ = (y – y1) / (y2 – y1)

z = z1 + ƛ (z2 – z1)

z – z1 = ƛ (z2 – z1)

ƛ = (z – z1) / (z2 – z1)

Hence the equation of the line passing through the points (x1, y1, z1) and (x2, y2, z2) is (x – x1) / (x2 – x1) = (y – y1) / (y2 – y1) = (z – z1) / (z2 – z1).

Question 48: If a fair coin is tossed 10 times, find the probability of

Solution:

Let X denote the number of heads in an experiment of 10 trials.

n = 10

p = 1 / 2

q = 1 – p = 1 – (1 / 2) = 1 / 2

P (X = r) = nCr pr qn-r

[i] P (X = 6)

= 10C6 (1 / 2)6 (1 / 2)10-6

= 10C6 (1 / 2)10

= 105 / 512

[ii] P (at least 6 heads)

= P (X ≥ 6)

= P (X = 6) + P (X = 7) + P (X = 8) + P (X = 9) + P (X = 10)

= 10C6 (1 / 2)10 + 10C7 (1 / 2)10 + 10C8 (1 / 2)10 + 10C9 (1 / 2)10 + 10C10 (1 / 2)10

= 193 / 512

Answer any one of the following questions. [1 * 10 = 10]

Question 49: [a] Prove that ∫0a f (x) dx = ∫0a f (a – x) dx and hence evaluate ∫0a √x / (√x + √a – x) dx.

[b] Prove that = 2 (x + y + z)3.

Solution:

[a] ∫0a f (x) dx = ∫0a f (a – x) dx

Let a – x = t

x = a – t

d (a – x) / dx = dt / dx

-1 = dt / dx

dx = -dt

When x = 0, a = t and x = a, t = 0

ab f (x) dx = – ∫0a f (a – t) dt

ab f (x) dx = ∫0a f (a – t) dt

ab f (x) dx = ∫0a f (a – x) dx

I = ∫0a √x / (√x + √a – x) dx

= ∫0a √a – x / (√a – x + √a – a + x) dx

2I = ∫0a √x / (√x + √a – x) dx + ∫0a √a – x / (√x + √a – x) dx

= ∫0a (√x + √a – x) / (√x + √a – x) dx

= ∫0a dx

= [x]0a

= a – 0

2I = a

I = a / 2

[b] Expand along R2

= 2 (x + y + z)2 (z + x + 2y – y)

= 2 (x + y + z)2 (x + y + z)

= 2 (x + y + z)3

= R.H.S.

Question 50: [a] Solve the following problem graphically:

Minimise and Maximize:

Z = 3x + 9y

Subject to constraints

x + 3y ≤ 60

x + y ≥ 10

x ≤ y

x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

[b] Find the relationship between a and b so that the function f defined by is continuous at x = 3.

Solution:

[a] The corner points are A (0, 10), B (5, 5), C (15, 15) and D (0, 20).

 Points Z A (0, 10) 90 B (5, 5) 60 ← Minimum C (15, 15) 180 ← Maximum D (0, 20) 180 ← Maximum

The minimum value of Z = 60 at point B (5, 5).

The maximum value of Z = 180 at the points D (0, 20) and C (15, 15).

[b] f (x) is continuous at x = 3.

lim x→3+ f (x) = lim x→3- f (x) = f (3)

lim x→3+ f (x) = lim x→3+ f (bx + 3)

= lim h→0 [b (3 + h) + 3]

= b (3 + 0) + 3

= 3b + 3

lim x→3- f (x) = 3b + 3

lim x→3- f (x) = lim x→3- (ax + 1)

= lim h→0 [a (3 – h) + 1]

lim x→3- f (x) = a (3 – 0) +1

= 3a + 1

lim x→3+ f (x) = lim x→3- f (x)

3b + 3 = 3a + 1

3 – 1 = 3a – 3b

2 = 3 (a – b)

∴ a – b = 2 / 3
