**SECTION – A**

**Question 1: Find x, if tan ^{-1} 3 + cot^{-1} x = 𝛑 / 2.**

**Solution: **

tan^{-1} 3 + cot^{-1} x = 𝛑 / 2

tan^{-1} 3 = 𝛑 / 2 – cot^{-1} x

tan^{-1 }x + cot^{-1} x = 𝛑 / 2

tan^{-1 }x = 𝛑 / 2 – cot^{-1} x

tan^{-1} 3 = tan^{-1} x

x = 3

**Question 2: Construct a 2 × 2 matrix A = [a _{ij}], whose elements are given by a_{ij} = |– 5i + 2j|.**

**Solution:**

a_{ij} = |– 5i + 2j|

The matrix A of order 2 × 2 is given by

.

a_{11} = |- 5 + 2| = 3

a_{12} = |- 5 + 4| = 1

a_{21} = |-10 + 2| = 8

a_{22} = |-10 + 4| = 6

A =

**Question 3: If [x -3] = 0, then find the value of x.**

**Solution:**

^{2}– 18] = 0

2x^{2} – 18 = 0

2x^{2} = 18

x^{2} = 18 / 2

x^{2} = 9

x = ± 3

**Question 4: Find ∫[tan x / cot x] dx.**

**Solution:**

∫[tan x / cot x] dx

tan x = 1 / cot x

= ∫tan^{2} x dx

= ∫sec^{2} x dx – ∫1 dx

= tan x – x + c

**Question 5: Find the general solution of the differential equation (dy / dx) – (y / x) = 0.**

**Solution:**

(dy / dx) – (y / x) = 0

(dy / dx) = (y / x)

∫dy / y = ∫dx / x

ln y = ln x + c

ln y = ln xc

y = xc

**Question 6: If a = 2i – j + 5k and b = 4i – 2j + ƛk such that a || b, find the value of λ.**

**Solution: **

a || b

a = kb

(2i – j + 5k) = k (4i – 2j + ƛk)

2 = 4k

– 1 = -2

5k = ƛk

k = 1 / 2

5 = (1 / 2)ƛ

ƛ = 10

**Question 7: Find the direction cosine of the line x / 4 = y / 7 = z / 4.**

**Solution:**

The direction ratios of the line are x / 4 = y / 7 = z / 4.

The direction cosine of the line are x / 4 = y / 7 = z / 4 are 4 / √4^{2} + 7^{2} + 4^{2}, 7 / √4^{2} + 7^{2} + 4^{2}, 4 / √4^{2} + 7^{2} + 4^{2}.

= 4 / 9, 7 / 9, 4 / 9

**Question 8: Find the angle between planes r . (i – j + k) = 5 and r . (2i + j – k) = 7.**

**Solution:**

Let the normal of the planes be a = i – j + k and b = 2i + j – k.

a . b = |a| . |b| cos θ

cos θ = (a . b) / |a| . |b|

cos θ = [i – j + k] [2i + j – k] / |i – j + k| |2i + j – k|

= [2 – 1 – 1] / √1 + 1 + 1 √4 + 1 + 1

cos θ = 0

θ = cos^{-1} 0

θ = 𝛑 / 2

**Question 9: Show the region of the feasible solution under the following constraints 2x + y ≥ 8, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 in the answer book.**

**Solution: **

**Question 10: If A and B are independent events with P (A) = 0.2 and P (B) = 0.5, then find the value of P (A ∪ B).**

**Solution:**

𝑃 (𝐴 ∪ 𝐵) = 𝑃 (𝐴) + 𝑃 (𝐵) − 𝑃 (𝐴 ∩ 𝐵)

𝑃 (𝐴 ∪ 𝐵) = 𝑃 (𝐴) + 𝑃 (𝐵) − 𝑃 (𝐴) × 𝑃 (𝐵)

= (0.2) + (0.5) – (0.2) (0.5)

= 0.7 – 0.10

= 0.6

**SECTION – B**

**Question 11: [a] Prove that the relation R in a set of real numbers R defined as R = {(a, b) : a ≥ b} is reflexive and transitive but not symmetric.**

**OR**

**[b] Consider f : R → R given by f (x) = 2x + 3. Show that f is invertible. Find also the inverse of function f.**

**Solution:**

Reflexive

R = {(a, a) : a > a}

Hence, R is reflexive.

Symmetric

Let (a, b) ∈ R

aRb ⇔ a ≥ b

bRa ⇔ b ≥ a not true

(b, a) ∉ R

Hence, R is not symmetric.

Transitive

Let (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R

aRb ⇔ a ≥ b

bRc ⇔ b ≥ c

a ≥ c

(a, c) ∈ R

Hence, R is transitive.

So, R is reflexive and transitive but not symmetric.

**OR**

f (x_{1}) = f (x_{2})

2x_{1} + 3 = 2x_{2} + 3

x_{1} = x_{2}

Therefore, f (x) is a one-one function.

In f (x) = 2x + 3, the domain of x and y are R, hence the domain and co-domain are the same.

Therefore, f (x) is onto function.

So, f (x) is a one-one and onto function.

Hence, the inverse of f (x) exists.

Let f (x) = y

y = 2x + 3

2x = y – 3

x = (y – 3) / 2

Replacing x by y and y by x,

y = (x – 3) / 2

f ^{-1} (x) = (x – 3) / 2

**Question 12: [a] Prove that tan ^{-1} (2 / 9) + tan^{-1} (1 / 4) = (1 / 2) sin^{-1} (4 / 5)**

**OR**

**[b] Solve 2 tan ^{-1} (sin x) = tan^{-1} (2 sec x), 0 < x < 𝛑 / 2.**

**Solution:**

^{-1}(2 / 9) + tan

^{-1}(1 / 4)

tan^{-1} x + tan^{-1} y = tan^{-1} [(x + y) / (1 – xy)]

= tan^{-1} [(2 / 9) + (1 / 4) / (1 – (2 / 9) (1 / 4)]

= tan^{-1} {[(8 + 9) / 36] / (1 – 2 / 36)}

= tan^{-1} [(17 / 36) / (34 / 36)]

= tan^{-1} (1 / 2)

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

= (1 / 2) sin^{-1} (4 / 5)

**OR**

^{-1}(sin x) = tan

^{-1}(2 sec x)

2 tan^{-1} x = tan^{-1} (2x / (1 – x))

tan^{-1} [(2 sin x) / (1 – sin^{2} x)] = tan^{-1} [2 sec x]

(2 sin x) / (1 – sin^{2} x) = 2 sec x

sin x / cos^{2} x = sec x

sin x sec x = 1

sin x / cos x = 1

tan x = 1

x = 𝛑 / 4

**Question 13: Express the matrix A = as the sum of a symmetric and a skew-symmetric matrix.**

**Solution:**

A = [(A + A^{T}) / 2] + [(A – A^{T}) / 2]

**Question 14: Find the value of K so that the function is continuous at the point x = 𝛑 / 2.**

**Solution:**

Right hand limit at x = 𝛑 / 2

lim _{x→(𝛑 / 2)+} f (x) = lim _{h→0} f (𝛑 / 2 + h)

= lim _{h→0} [K cos (𝛑 / 2 + h)] / [(𝛑 – 2) (𝛑 / 2 + h)]

= lim _{h→0} – K sin h / – 2h

= (K / 2) lim _{h→0} sin h / h

= K / 2

For f (x) to be continuous, f (𝛑 / 2)^{+} = f (𝛑 / 2)

K / 2 = 5

K = 10

**Question 15: [a] Find the intervals in which the function f given by f (x) = x ^{2} – 6x + 5 is **

**i) Strictly increasing **

**ii) Strictly decreasing **

**OR **

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

**Solution:**

^{2}– 6x + 5

f ‘ (x) = 2x – 6

Put f ‘ (x) = 0

2x – 6 = 0

x = 3

Then divide the given interval into two parts as (-∞, 3) and (3, ∞).

[i] Take the interval (3, ∞)f ‘ (x) = 2x – 6 > 0

The given function is strictly increasing in the interval (3, ∞).

[ii] Take the interval (-∞, 3)f ‘ (x) = 2x – 6 < 0

The given function is strictly decreasing in the interval (-∞, 3).

**OR**

^{2/3}+ y

^{2/3}= 1

(2 / 3) x^{-⅓ }+ (2 / 3) y^{-⅓} (dy / dx) = 0

(1 / y^{⅓}) dy / dx = (- 1 / x^{⅓})

dy / dx = – (y / x)^{⅓}

At (1, 1) dy / dx = -1

y – 1 = – 1 (x – 1)

y – 1 + x – 1 = 0

x + y – 2 = 0

**Question 16: The radius of a circle is increasing uniformly at the rate of 5 cm/sec. Find the rate at which the area of the circle is increasing when the radius is 6 cm.**

**Solution:**

Let the radius and area of the circle be r and A.

dr / dt = 5 cm/sec

A = 𝛑r^{2}

dA / dt = 2𝛑r (dr / dt)

= 2𝛑 * 6 * 5

= 60𝛑 cm^{2}/sec

**Question 17: [a] Find ∫[(x – 1) (x – log x) ^{3} / x] dx**

**OR**

**[b] Find ∫log (x ^{2} + 1) dx.**

**Solution:**

^{3}/ x] dx

Put x – log x = t

(1 – (1 / x)) dx = dt

([x – 1] / x) dx = dt

∫[(x – 1) (x – log x)^{3} / x] dx = ∫t^{3} dt

= t^{4} / 4 + c

= (x – log x)^{4} / 4 + c

**OR**

^{2}+ 1) dx

= ∫1 log (x^{2} + 1) dx

= log (x^{2} + 1) ∫dx – ∫[(d / dx) (log (x^{2} + 1)) ∫dx] dx

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

= x log (x^{2} + 1) – 2 [∫dx – ∫1 / x^{2} + 1 dx]

= x log (x^{2} + 1) – 2 [x – tan^{-1} x] + c

= x log (x^{2} + 1) – 2x + tan^{-1 }x + c

**Question 18: Find ∫1 / [3x ^{2} + 6x + 2].**

**Solution:**

∫1 / [3x^{2} + 6x + 2]

= (1 / 3) ∫[1 / x^{2} + 2x + 1 + (2 / 3) – 1] dx

= (1 / 3) ∫[1 / x^{2} + 2x + 1 – (1 / 3)]

= (1 / 3) ∫1 / (x + 1)^{2} – (1 / √3)^{2}

= (1 / 3) / 2 (1 / √3) log |(x + 1 – (1 / √3)) / (x + 1 – (1 / √3))| + c

= (1 / 2√3) log |(x + 1 – (1 / √3)) / (x + 1 – (1 / √3))| + c

**Question 19: Find the area bounded by the parabola y ^{2} = 4x and the straight line y = x. (Draw the figure in answer book)**

**Solution: **

y^{2} = 4x and y = x

y^{2} = 4y

y^{2} – 4y = 0

y (y – 4) = 0

y = 0, 4

Area = ∫_{0}^{4} (2√x – x) dx

= [(4 / 3) x^{3/2} – (x^{2} / 2)]_{0}^{4}

= [(4 / 3) (4)^{3/2} – 8 – 0]

= (32 / 3) – 8

= 8 / 3 square units

**Question 20: Using integration, find the area of a triangular region whose sides have the equations y = x + 1, y = 2x + 1 and x = 2. (Draw the figure in answer book)**

**Solution:**

Consider y = x + 1 and y = 2x + 1

Equate both the equations and solve for x

x + 1 = 2x + 1

x = 0

Substitute x = 0 in y = x + 1,

y = 1

Substitute x = 2 in y = 2x + 1

y = 5

Graph of y = x + 1, y = 2x + 1 and x = 2 is given by

Area = ∫_{0}^{2} [2x + 1 – x – 1] dx

= ∫_{0}^{2} x dx

= [x^{2} / 2]_{0}^{2}

= 2 square units

**Question 21: If a, b, c are unit vectors such that a + b + c = 0, find the value of a . b + b . c + c . a.**

**Solution:**

a + b + c = 0

(a + b + c)^{2} = 0

|a|^{2} + |b|^{2} + |c|^{2} + 2 (a . b + b . c + c . a) = 0

1 + 1 + 1 + 2 (a . b + b . c + c . a) = 0

2 (a . b + b . c + c . a) = – 3

(a . b + b . c + c . a) = -3 / 2

**Question 22: Find a unit vector perpendicular to each of the vectors 2a + b and a – 2b, where a = i + 2j – k, b = i + j + k.**

**Solution:**

a = i + 2j – k

b = i + j + k

2a + b = 2 (i + 2j – k) + i + j + k

= 3i + 5j – k

a – 2b = (i + 2j – k) – 2 (i + j + k)

= – i – 3k

The vector perpendicular to both 2a + b and a – 2b is

= -15i + 10j + 5k

Unit vector is given by

= [-15i + 10j + 5k] / √225 + 100 + 25

= [-15i + 10j + 5k] / √350

= [-15i + 10j + 5k] / 5√14

= [-3i + 2j + k] / √14

**Question 23: By graphical method solve the following linear programming problem for maximization. **

**Objective function Z = 1000x + 600y **

**Constraints **

**x + y ≤ 200 **

**4x – y ≤ 0 **

**x ≥ 20, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0.**

**Solution:**

Points |
Z |

(20, 80) | 68000 |

(20, 180) | 128000 |

(40, 160) | 136000 |

The maximum value of Z = 1000x+ 600y is 136000 at x = 40 and y =160.

**Question 24: Bag A contains 2 red and 3 black balls while another bag B contains 3 red and 4 black balls. One ball is drawn at random from one of the bags and it is found to be red. Find the probability that it was drawn from bag B.**

**Solution:**

Consider the events E and F as follows:

E: Bag A is selected

F: Bag B is selected

A: Ball drawn is red

Since there are only two bags.

Bag A contains 2 red and 3 black balls

P (A / E) = 2 / 5

Bag B contains 3 red and 4 black balls

P (A / F) = 3 / 7

The required probability is

P (F / A) = [P (F) P (A / F)] / [P (E) P (A / E) + P (F) P (A / F)]

= (1 / 2) (3 / 7) / [(1 / 2) * (2 / 5) + (1 / 2) * (3 / 7)]

= (8 / 35) / [(3 / 14) + (8 / 35)]

= (3 / 14) / (29 / 70)

= 15 / 29

**Question 25: From a lot of 30 bulbs which include 6 defectives, a sample of 2 bulbs is drawn at random with replacement. Find the probability distribution of the number of defective bulbs.**

**Solution:**

Let X be a random variable.

X = number of defective bulbs.

Clearly, X can assume the value 0, 1 or 2.

P (X = 0) = ^{24}C_{2} / ^{30}C_{2} = 92 / 145

P (X = 1) = ^{6}C_{1 }* ^{24}C_{1} / ^{30}C_{2} = 48 / 145

P (X = 2) = ^{6}C_{2} / ^{30}C_{2} = 1 / 129

**SECTION – C**

**Question 26: Prove that = (a + b + c) (a – b) (b – c) (c – a).**

**Solution:**

= (a + b + c) [(a^{2} – c ^{2}) (c – b) – (c – a) (b^{2} – c^{2})]

= (a + b + c) [(a – c) (a + c) (c – b) – (c – a) (b – c) (b + c)]

= (a + b + c) (b – c) (c – a) [(a + c) – (b + c)]

= (a + b + c) (a – b) (b – c) (c – a)

**Question 27: If y = [sin ^{-1} x]^{2} then show that (1 – x^{2}) (d^{2}y / dx^{2}) – x (dy / dx) – 2 = 0.**

**Solution:**

y = [sin^{-1} x]^{2}

dy / dx = 2 sin^{-1} x / √1 – x^{2} —– (1)

d^{2}y / dx^{2} = {(2 √1 – x^{2}) * (1 / √1 – x^{2}) – (2 sin^{-1} x) * (1 / 2) * (-2x / √1 – x^{2})} / (1 – x^{2})

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

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

(1 – x^{2}) (d^{2}y / dx^{2}) – x (dy / dx) – 2 = 0

**Question 28: Evaluate ∫ _{0}^{𝛑} [x sinx / 1 + cos^{2} x] dx.**

**Solution:**

I = ∫_{0}^{𝛑} [x sinx / 1 + cos^{2} x] dx —- (1)

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} [(𝛑 – x) sin (𝛑 – x) / 1 + cos^{2} (𝛑 – x)] dx

= ∫_{0}^{𝛑} [(𝛑 – x) sin x / 1 + cos^{2} x] dx —- (2)

Adding (1) and (2)

2I = 𝛑 ∫_{0}^{𝛑} sin x / (1 + cos^{2} x) dx

2I = 2𝛑 ∫_{0}^{𝛑/2} (sin x dx) / (1 + cos^{2} x)

I = 𝛑 ∫_{0}^{𝛑/2} (sin x dx) / (1 + cos^{2} x)

Let cos x = t

– sinx dx = dt

I = 𝛑 ∫_{1}^{0} – dt / 1 + t^{2}

I = – 𝛑 [tan^{-1} t]_{1}^{0}

I = – 𝛑 [tan^{-1} 0 – tan^{-1} 1]

= – 𝛑 [- 𝛑 / 4]

= 𝛑^{2} / 4

**Question 29: [a] Solve the differential equation 2xy + y ^{2} – 2x^{2} (dy / dx) = 0**

**OR**

**[b] Solve the differential equation dy / dx + y cot x = 2x + x ^{2} cot x.**

**Solution:**

^{2}– 2x

^{2}(dy / dx) = 0

2x^{2} (dy / dx) = 2xy + y^{2}

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

Ley y = vx

dy / dx = v + x (dv / dx)

Put in (1)

v + x (dv / dx) = v + (1 / 2)v^{2}

x (dv / dx) = v^{2} / 2

dv / v^{2} = dx / 2x

On integrating both sides,

∫dv / v^{2} = ∫dx / 2x

(- 1 / v) = (1 / 2) log x + c

(- x / y) = (1 / 2) log x + c

**OR**

^{2}cot x

This is a linear differential equation of the form (dy / dx) + Py = Q

P = cot x, Q = 2x + x^{2} cot x

IF = e^{∫P dx} = e^{∫cot x dx }= e^{log sinx} = sin x

Multiply both sides by I.F. & then integrate

y sin x = ∫2x sin x dx + ∫x^{2} cot x sin x dx

y sin x = 2 ∫x sin x dx + ∫x^{2} cos x dx

= 2 ∫x sin x dx + x^{2} sin x – ∫2x sin x dx + c

y sin x = x^{2} sin x + c

**Question 30: [a] Find the shortest distance between the lines (x – 1) / 1 = (y – 2) / -1 = (z – 1) / 1 and (x – 2) / 2 = (y + 1) / 1 = (z + 1) / 2.**

**OR**

**[b] Prove that if a plane has the intercepts a, b, c and is at distance p units from the origin, then prove that 1 / a ^{2} + 1 / b^{2} + 1 / c^{2} = 1 / p^{2}.**

**Solution:**

⇒ (r – [i + 2j + k]) . (i – j + k) = 0

(x – 2) / 2 = (y + 1) / 1 = (z + 1) / 2

⇒ (r – [2i – j – k]) . (2i + j + 2k) = 0

Shortest distance = |[(b – a) . (p x q)] / [p x q]|

[p x q] == i (- 2 – 1) – j (2 – 2) + k (1 + 2)

= – 3i + 3k

(b – a) = (2i – j – k) – (i + 2j + k)

= i – 3j – 2k

Shortest distance = |(i – 3j – 2k) (-3i + 3k) / 3√2|

= |- 3 + 0 – 6| / 3√2

= 9 / 3√2

= 3 / √2 units

**OR**

Perpendicular distance from origin (0, 0, 0)

P = |0 + 0 + 0 – 1| / √(1 / a^{2} + 1 / b^{2} + 1 / c^{2})

= 1 / √(1 / a^{2} + 1 / b^{2} + 1 / c^{2})

(1 / a^{2} + 1 / b^{2} + 1 / c^{2}) = 1 / p^{2}
