Question 6: [i] What is the meaning of similarity? 2M
OR
[ii] What are the conditions for the similarity of polygons?
Solution:
[i] Two figures are said to be similar if they both have the same shape, or one has the same shape as the mirror image of the other.OR
[ii] Two polygons are similar if the corresponding angles are congruent and the corresponding sides are proportional.Question 7: [i] The perimeters of two similar triangles are 30cm and 20cm respectively. If one side of the triangle is 12 cm, then find the length of the corresponding side of the other triangle. 3M
OR
[ii] Write the statement of Basic Proportionality Theorem (Thales Theorem).
Solution:
[i] Let triangle ABC and triangle PQR are two similar triangles.⇒ Perimeter of △ABC = 30 cm
⇒ Perimeter of △PQR = 20 cm
⇒ BC = 12 cm, QR = ?
⇒ In the similarity case,
Perimeter of △ABC / Perimeter of △PQR = AB / PQ = BC / QR = AC / PR
[Ratio of their corresponding sides]⇒ 30 / 20 = 12 / x
⇒ 1.5 = 12 / x
⇒ x * 1.5 = 12
⇒ x = 8cm
OR
[ii] If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle intersecting the other two sides in distinct points, then the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.Question 8: [i] Check whether 6cm, 8cm and 10cm are the sides of the right-angled triangle? 2M
OR
[ii] ∆ACB is an isosceles triangle such that AC = BC, if AB^{2 }= 2AC^{2}, then prove that ∆ACB is a right-angled triangle.
Solution:
[i] In a right-angled triangle,Hypotenuse² = Adjacent² + Opposite²
10² = 8² + 6²
100 = 64 + 36
100 =100
These are the sides of a right-angled triangle.
OR
[ii]
AB^{2 }= 2AC^{2}
AB^{2} = AC^{2} + AC^{2}
AB^{2} = AC^{2} + BC^{2}
So, AB will be the largest side which is the hypotenuse.
Hypotenuse² = Adjacent² + Opposite²
AB^{2} = AC^{2} + BC^{2}
LHS = AB^{2}
RHS = AC^{2} + AC^{2}
= 2AC^{2}
= AB^{2}
LHS = RHS
Pythagoras theorem holds good and thus triangle ABC is a right-angled triangle.

n (A) = 3
P (A) = n (A) / n (S)

Question 11: [i] A chord of length 30cm is drawn at a distance of 8cm from the centre of the circle. Find the radius of a circle. 3M
OR
[ii] Prove that the length of two tangents drawn from an external point to a circle is equal.
Solution:
[i]
Chord of length 30 cm
Given that the distance from centre to the chord AB is OC = 8 cm.
OC ⊥ AB and AC = CB [Since perpendicular drawn from the centre of the circle bisects the chord]
∴ AC = CB = 15 cm
In right ΔOCA,
OA^{2} = AC^{2} + OC^{2}
= 152 + 82
= 225 + 64
= 289
AC = 17 cm
Thus, the radius of the circle is 17 cm.
OR
[ii]
Let two tangents PT and QT be drawn to the circle of centre O as shown in the figure.
Both the given tangents PT and QT touch to the circle at P and Q respectively.
To prove that the length of PT = length of QT.
Construction: Draw a line segment, from centre O to external point T {touching point of two tangents}.
Proof: In ∆POT and ∆QOT, the tangent makes a right angle with the radius of the circle.
PO and QO are radii.
So, ∠OPT = ∠OQT = 90°
It is clear that both the triangles ∆POT and ∆QOT are right-angled triangles with a common hypotenuse OT of these [as shown in the figure].
In ∆POT and ∆QOT,
∠OPT = OQT = 90°
Common hypotenuse OT and OP = OQ [OP and OQ are radii]
So, by RHS rule of similarity,
∆POT ~ ∆QOT
OP / OQ = PT / QT = OT / OT
PT / QT = 1
PT = QT
Question 12: [i] Prove that the angles in the same segment of a circle are equal to each other. 3M
OR
[ii] Prove that the angles in the semicircle are the right angle.
Solution:
[i]
Given a circle with centre O, the points P and Q subtends the angles ∠PAQ and ∠PBQ at points A and B respectively.
To prove that ∠PAQ = ∠PBQ
Proof:
Chord PQ subtends ∠POQ at the centre.
From the theorem “Angles subtended by an arc at the centre is double the angles subtended by it at any other point on the circle.”
∠POQ = 2 ∠PAQ —– (1)
∠POQ = 2∠PBQ —– (2)
From (1) and (2),
2∠PBQ = 2∠PAQ
∠PBQ = ∠PAQ
OR
[ii]
Given: A circle with centre O. PQ is the diameter of the circle subtending ∠PAQ at point A on the circle.
To prove that: ∠PAQ = 90^{o}
Proof:
POQ is a straight line passing through centre O.
Angle subtended by arc PQ at O is ∠POQ = 180^{o} —- (1)
Also, by theorem “The angle subtended by an arc at the centre is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circle.”
∠POQ = 2∠PAQ
∠POQ / 2 = ∠PAQ
180^{o} / 2 = ∠PAQ —- (from (1))
90^{o} = ∠PAQ
∠PAQ = 90^{o}
Question 13: [i] If the mean of 5 observations x, x + 2, x + 4, x + 6, x + 8 is 11, then find the value of x.
OR
[ii] Find the arithmetic mean of 47, 53, 49, 60, 39, 42, 53, 52, 50, 55. 3M
Solution:
[i] x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 + x + 8 / 5 = 115x + 20 = 55
5x = 35
⇒ x = 7
OR
[ii] Mean = ∑x / n= [47 + 53 + 49 + 60 + 39 + 42 + 53 + 52 + 50 + 55] / 10
= 503 / 10

N = 21
Median = [(N + 1) / 2]^{th} term
= [21 + 1 ] / 2
= 22 / 2
= 11^{th} term
= 8
OR
[ii] The two merits of the median are:(a) It is easy to compute and understand.
(b) It is well defined an ideal average should be.

Question 15: [i] Solve the following system of equation by Substitution Method: 4x+ y = 7
3x – 2y = 11 4M
OR
[ii] If in ∆ABC, ∠C = 2∠B = ∠A + ∠B + 20, then find all the three angles of the triangle.
Solution:
[i] 4x + y = 7 —- (1)3x – 2y = 11 —- (2)
From (1), y = 7 – 4x —- (3)
Substitute (3) in (2),
3x – 2 * (7 – 4x) = 11
3x – 14 + 8x = 11
11x = 11 + 14
11x = 25
x = 25 / 11
Put the value of x in (1),
4 * (25 / 11) + y = 7
100 / 11 + y = 7
y = 7 – (100 / 11)
= [77 – 100] / 11
= -23 / 11
So,
x = 25 / 11 and y = -23 / 11
OR
[ii] ∠C = 2∠B = ∠A + ∠B + 20∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180^{o}
Since ∠C = 2∠B and 2∠B = ∠A + ∠B + 20,
∠B = ∠A + 20
∠A + ∠B + 2∠B = 180^{o}
∠A + ∠A + 20 + 2 [∠A + 20] = 180^{o}
∠A + ∠A + 20 + 2∠A + 40 = 180
4∠A = 180 – 60
4∠A = 120
∠A = 120 / 4
∠A = 30^{o}
∠B = ∠A + 20
∠B = 30 + 20
∠B = 50^{o}
∠C = 2∠B = 2 * 50^{o} = 100^{o}
Question 16: [i] A fraction becomes 1 / 4 when 2 is subtracted from its numerator and 3 is added to its denominator and on adding 6 to the numerator and multiplying the denominator by 3, it becomes 2 / 3. Find the fraction. 4M
OR
[ii] The sum of two numbers is 7. If the sum of these numbers is 7 times of its difference, then find the numbers.
Solution:
[i] Let the numerator be ‘a’ and denominator be ‘b’.Given, 3 is added to the denominator and 2 is subtracted from the numerator a fraction becomes 1/4.
⇒ [a – 2] / [b + 3] = [1 / 4]
⇒ 4a – 8 = b + 3
⇒ 4a – b = 11—-(1)
Also, when 6 is added to the numerator and the denominator is multiplied by 3, it becomes 2/3.
⇒ [a + 6] / 3b = [2 / 3]
⇒ 3a + 18 = 2b
⇒ a + 6 = 2b —-(2)
On multiplying equation (2) by 4 and subtracting from equation (1),
⇒ 4a – b – 4a – 24 = 11 – 8b
⇒ 7b = 35
⇒ b = 5
Thus, a = 4.
The fraction is 4 / 5.
OR
[ii] Let the numbers be x and y.x + y = 7………(1)
x + y = 7 (x – y)
6x – 8y = 0
3x – 4y = 0 * 2 —- (2)
4x + 4y = 28 —- (3)
7x = 28
x = 28 / 7
x = 4
4 + y = 7
y = 7 – 4
y = 3

OR
[ii] If x / b + c = y / c + a = z / a + b, then prove that (b – c) x + (c – a) y + (a – b) z = 0.
Solution:
[i] If b is the mean proportional of a and c, then b^{2} = ac.Take the LHS
= [a^{2} + b^{2}] / ab
= [a^{2} + ac] / ab
= a (a + c) / ab
= (a + c) / b
OR
[ii] Let x / b + c = y / c + a = z / a + b = k.x = k (b + c), y = k (c + a), z = k (a + b)
LHS = (b – c) x + (c – a) y + (a – b) z
= (b – c) (k (b + c)) + (c – a) (k (c + a)) + (a – b) (k (a + b))
= k (b^{2} – c^{2}) + k (c^{2} – a^{2}) + k (a^{2} – b^{2})
= k (b^{2} – c^{2} + c^{2} – a^{2} + a^{2} – b^{2})

x(x – 6) + 1(x – 6) = 0
(x – 6) (x + 1) = 0
x = 6, -1
OR
[ii] The polynomial ax^{2} + bx + c = 0 whose zeroes are α, β.The sum of the zeroes = α + β = -b / a.
The product of the zeroes = α * β = c / a
α^{2} + β^{2} = (α + β)^{2} – 2 [α * β]
= [-b / a]^{2} – 2 * [c / a]
= b^{2} / a^{2} – 2c / a
= b^{2} – 2ac / a^{2}

[ii] Prove that: [1 + cosA] / sin A + sin A / 1 + cos A = 2 / sin A.
Solution:
[i] L.H.S. = sin 70˚/cos 20˚ + cosec 20˚/sec 70˚ – 2 cos 70˚ × cosec 20˚= sin(90˚ – 20˚) / cos 20˚ + cosec (90˚ – 70˚) / sec 70˚ – 2 cos 70˚ × cosec 20˚
= cos 20˚ / cos 20˚ + sec 70˚ / sec 70˚ – 2 cos 70˚ × cosec 20˚
= 1 + 1 – 2 cos (90˚ – 20˚) cosec 20˚
= 2 – 2 sin 20˚ . 1 / sin 20˚
= 2 – 2
= 0
= R.H.S
OR
[ii] LHS = [1 + cosA] / sin A + sin A / 1 + cos A= (1 + cos A)^{2} + sin^{2} A / sin A (1 + cos A)
= 1 + 2 cos A + cos^{2} A + sin^{2} A / sin A (1 + cos A)
= 1 + 2 cos A + 1 / sin A (1 + cos A)
= 2 + 2 cos A / sin A (1 + cos A)
= 2 (1 + cos A) / sin A (1 + cos A)
= 2 / sin A
= RHS
