### Telangana Board SSC Class 10 Maths 2016 Question Paper 1 with Solutions         PART A

SECTION – I

1. Find the value of log5 125.

Solution:

Let log5 125 = x

⇒ 5x = 125

⇒ 5x = 53

⇒ x = 3

Therefore, log5 125 = 3

2. If A = {1, 1/4, 1/9, 1/16, 1/25}, then write A in set-builder form.

Solution:

A = {1, 1/4, 1/9, 1/16, 1/25}

= {1/12, 1/22, 1/32, 1/42, 1/52}

The set-builder form: A = {1/x2 : x ≤ 5, x ∈ N}

3. Write an example for a quadratic polynomial that has no zeroes.

Solution:

x2 + x + 11 is one of the polynomials which do not have zeroes.

4. If b2 – 4ac > 0 in ax2 + bx + c = 0, then what can you say about roots of the equation? (a ≠ 0)

Solution:

Given,

ax2 + bx + c = 0

And

b2 – 4ac > 0

Hence, the roots of the equation are real and unequal.

5. Find the sum of the first 200 natural numbers.

Solution:

First 200 natural numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4,…,200

n = 200

We know that,

Sum of first n natural numbers = n(n + 1)/2

Sum of the first 200 natural numbers = 200(200 + 1)/2

= 100 × 201

= 20100

6. For what values of m, the pair of equations 3x + my = 10 and 9x + 12y = 30 have a unique solution.

Solution:

Given.

3x + my = 10

9x + 12y = 30

Comparing with the standard form a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2 = 0,

a1 = 3, b1 = m, c1 = -10

a2 = 9, b2 = 12, c2 = -30

Condition for unique solution

a1/a2 ≠ b1/b2

3/9 ≠ m/12

⇒ m ≠ 12/3

⇒ m ≠ 4

Hence, m takes all the real values except 4.

7. Find the midpoint of the line segment joining the points (-5, 5) and (5, -5).

Solution:

Let the given points be:

(x1, y1) = (-5, 5)

(x2, y2) = (5, -5)

Midpoint = [(x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2]

= [(-5 + 5)/2, (5 – 5)/2]

= (0/2, 0/2)

= (0, 0)

SECTION – II

8. If x2 + y2 = 7xy, then show that 2 log(x + y) = log x + log y + 2 log 3.

Solution:

Given,

x2 + y2 = 7xy

Adding 2xy on both the sides,

x2 + y2 + 2xy = 7xy + 2xy

(x + y)2 = 9xy

(x + y)2 = (3)2xy

Taking log on both sides,

log (x + y)2 = log (3)2xy

2 log (x + y) = log 32 + log x + log y

2 log (x + y) = 2 log 3 + log x + log y

9. Length of a rectangle is 5 units more than its breadth. Express its perimeter in polynomial form.

Solution:

Let x be the breadth of a rectangle.

Length = (x + 5) units

Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (Length + Breadth)

= 2(x + 5 + x)

= 2(2x + 5)

= 4x + 10

10. Measures of sides of a triangle are in Arithmetic Progression. Its perimeter is 30 cm and the difference between the longest and shortest side is 4 cm, then find the measures of the sides.

Solution:

Let a – d, a, a + d be the measures of three sides of a triangle.

According to the given,

Perimeter = 30 cm

a – d + a + a + d = 30

3a = 30

a = 30/3

a = 10

Also,

a + d – (a – d) = 4

2d = 4

d = 4/2

d = 2

Thus, a – d = 10 – 2 = 8

a + d = 10 + 2 = 12

Hence, the measures of the triangle are 8 cm, 10 am and 12 cm.

11. Show that the points A(-3, 3), B(0, 0), C(3, -3) are collinear.

Solution:

If (x1, y1), (x2, y2) and (x3, y3) are collinear, then the area of the triangle formed by these vertices is 0.

That means ½ [x1(y2 – y3) + x2(y3 – y1) + x3(y1 – y2)] = 0

Given,

A(-3, 3), B(0, 0), C(3, -3)

Area of triangle ABC = ½ [-3(0 + 3) + 0(-3 – 3) + 3(3 – 0)]

= ½ [-9 + 0 + 9]

= ½ (0)

= 0

Hence, the given points are collinear.

12. Solve the following pair of linear equations by substitution method.

2x – 3y = 19

3x – 2y = 21

Solution:

Given,

2x – 3y = 19….(i)

3x – 2y = 21….(ii)

From (i),

2x – 3y = 19

2x = 3y + 19

x = (3y + 19)/2….(iii)

Substituting (iii) in (ii),

3[(3y + 19)/2] – 2y = 21

9y + 57 – 4y = 42

5y = 42 – 57

5y = -15

y = -15/5

y = -3

Substituting y = -3 in (iii),

x = [3(-3) + 19)]/2

= (-9 + 19)/2

= 10/2

= 5

Hence, the solution of the given pair of linear equations is x = 5 and y = -3.

13. If 9x2 + kx + 1 = 0 has equal roots, find the value of k.

Solution:

Given,

9x2 + kx + 1 = 0

Comparing with the standard form ax2 + bx + c = 0,

a = 9, b = k, c = 1

Condition for equal roots:

b2 – 4ac = 0

k2 – 4(9)(1) = 0

k2 – 36 = 0

k2 = 36

k = √36

k = ±6

SECTION – III

14. Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the cube of any positive integer is of the form 7m or 7m + 1 or 7m + 6.

Solution:

Let a be any positive integer and b = 7.

By Euclid’s division lemma,

a = bq + r, 0 ≤ r < b

a = 7q + r; r = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

When r = 0,

a = 7q

a3 = (7q)3

a3 = 343q3

a3 = 7(49q3)

a3 = 7m, where m = 49q3

Also,in (7q + r)3, consider r3 and divide by 7. The remainder will give the result in each case.

When r = 1,

13 = 1 and a3 = 7m + 1

When r = 2,

23 = 8, divided by 7, the remainder is 1. Therefore, a3 = 7m + 1

When r = 3,

33 = 27 divided by 7, the remainder is 6. Therefore, a3 = 7m + 6

When r = 4,

43 = 64 divided by 7, the remainder is 1. Therefore, a3 = 7m + 1

When r = 5,

53 = 125 divided by 7, the remainder is 6. Therefore, a3 = 7m + 6

When r = 6,

63 = 216 divided by 7, the remainder is 6. Therefore, a3 = 7m + 6

Hence, the cube of any positive integer is of the form 7m or 7m + 1 or 7m + 6.

OR

Prove that √2 – 3√5 is an irrational number.

Solution:

Let √2 – 3√5 be a rational number.

√2 – 3√5 = a, where a is an integer.

Squaring on both sides,

(√2 – 3√5)2 = a2

(√2)2 + (3√5)2 – 2(√2)(3√5) = a2

2 + 45 – 6√10 = a2

47 – 6√10 = a2

-6√10 = a2 – 47

√10 = (47 – a2)/6

(47 – a2)/6 is a rational number since a is an integer.

Therefore, √10 is also an integer.

We know that integers are not rational numbers.

Thus, our assumption that √2 – 3√5 is a rational number is wrong.

Hence, √2 – 3√5 is an irrational number.

15. Draw the graph for the polynomial p(x) = x2 – 3x + 2 and find the zeroes from the graph.

Solution:

Given,

p(x) = x2 – 3x + 2

Let y = x2 – 3x + 2

 x -2 0 1 2 3 4 5 Y = p(x) 12 2 0 0 2 6 12 OR

Draw the graph for the following pair of linear equations in two variables and find their solution from the graph.

3x – 2y = 2 and 2x + y = 6

Solution:

Given,

3x – 2y = 2

2x + y = 6

Consider the first equation:

3x – 2y = 2

2y = 3x – 2

y = (3/2)x – 1

 x -2 0 2 4 6 y -4 -1 2 5 8

Now, consider another equation:

2x + y = 6

y = -2x + 6

 x -2 0 2 3 4 y 10 6 2 0 -2 The lines representing the given pair of equations intersecting each other at (2, 2).

Hence, the solution of the given pair of linear equations is x = 2 and y = 2.

16. Sum of the squares of two consecutive positive even integers is 100, find those numbers by using quadratic equations.

Solution:

Let x and x + 2 be the two consecutive even integers.

According to the given,

x2 + (x + 2)2 = 100

x2 + x2 + 4 + 4x – 100 = 0

2x2 + 4x – 96 = 0

2(x2 + 2x – 48) = 0

x2 + 2x – 48 = 0

x2 + 8x – 6x – 48 = 0

x(x + 8) – 6(x + 8) = 0

(x + 8)(x – 6) = 0

x = -8, x = 6

The value of x cannot be negative.

Thus, x = 6

x + 2 = 6 + 2 = 8

Hence, the required numbers are 6 and 8.

OR

X is a set of factors of 24 and Y is a set of factors of 36, then find sets X ⋃ Y and X ⋂ Y by using Venn diagram and comment on the answer.

Solution:

X = factors of 24

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24}

Y = factors of 36

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36}

X ⋃ Y = {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24} ⋃ {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36} = {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36}

X ⋂ Y = {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24} ⋂ {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36} = {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12} 17. Find the sum of all the three digit numbers, which are divisible by 4.

Solution:

Three digit numbers which are divisible by 4 are:

100, 104, 108,…., 996

This is an AP with a = 100 and d = 4

nth term of AP

an = a + (n – 1)d

996 = 100 + (n – 1)4

(n – 1)4 = 996 – 100 = 896

n – 1 = 896/4

n – 1 = 224

n = 225

Sum of first n terms

Sn = n/2(a + an)

S225 = (225/2) × (100 + 996)

= (225/2) × 1096

= 123300

Hence, the required sum is 123300.

OR

Find the coordinates of the points of trisection of the line segment joining the points (-3, 3) and (3, -3).

Solution:

Let the given points be:

A(-3, 3) and B(3, -3)

Let C and D be the points of trisection of line joining the points A and B. C divided AB in the ratio 1 : 2.

m : n = 1 : 2

Using section formula,

C = [(mx2 + nx1)/ (m + n), (my2 + ny1)/ (m + n)]

= [(3 – 6)/ (1 + 2), (-3 + 6)/(1 + 2)]

= (-3/3, 3/3)

= (-1, 1)

D is the midpoint of BC.

D = [(-1 + 3)/2, (1 – 3)/2]

= (2/2, -2/2)

= (1, -1)

Hence, the required points are (-1, 1) and (1, -1).
