### Telangana Board SSC Class 10 Maths 2017 Question Paper 1 with Solutions

**PART A**

**SECTION – I**

**1. **Write the nature of roots of the quadratic equation 2x^{2} – 5x + 6 = 0.

**Solution:**

Given,

2x^{2} – 5x + 6 = 0

Comparing with the standard form ax^{2} + bx + c = 0,

a = 2, b = -5, c = 6

Discriminant = b^{2} – 4ac

= (-5)^{2} – 4(2)(6)

= 25 – 48

= -23 < 0

Hence, the roots of the given quadratic equation are not real, i.e. the roots are imaginary.

**2. **Find the value of log_{âˆš2} 256.

**Solution:**

Let log_{âˆš2} 256 = x

â‡’ (âˆš2)^{x} = 256

â‡’ (âˆš2)^{x} = 2^{8}

â‡’ (âˆš2)^{x} = (âˆš2)^{16}

â‡’ x = 16

Therefore, log_{âˆš2} 256 = 16

**3. **In a GP, t_{n} = (-1)^{n} 2017. Find the common ratio.

**Solution:**

Given,

nth term of GP is t_{n} = (-1)^{n} 2017

t_{1} = (-1)^{1} 2017 = -2017

t_{2} = (-1)^{2} 2017 = 2017

Common ratio = t2/t1

= -2017/2017

= -1

**4. **Srikar says that the order of the polynomial (x^{2} – 5)(x^{3} + 1) is 6. Do you agree with him? How?

**Solution:**

Given polynomial is

p(x) = (x^{2} – 5)(x^{3} + 1)

= x^{2}(x^{3} + 1) – 5(x^{3} + 1)

= x^{5} + x^{2} – 5x^{3} – 5

= x^{5} – 5x^{3} + x^{2} – 5

The highest degree of the polynomial is 5.

Hence, the order of the polynomial is not 6 and not agreeing with Srikar.

5. A(0, 3), B(k, 0) and AB = 5. Find the positive value of k.

**Solution:**

Given,

A(0, 3), B(k, 0) and AB = 5

Using the distance formula,

AB = âˆš[(k – 0)^{2} + (0 – 3)^{2}]

5 = âˆš(k^{2} + 3^{2})

Squaring on both sides,

25 = k^{2} + 9

â‡’ k^{2} = 25 – 9

â‡’ k^{2} = 16

â‡’ k = âˆš16

â‡’ k = Â±4

Therefore, the positive value of k = 4.

**6. **Show that the pair of linear equations 7x + y = 10 and x + 7y = 10 are consistent.

**Solution:**

Given,

7x + y = 10

x + 7y = 10

Comparing with the standard form a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} = 0 and a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0,

a_{1} = 7, b_{1} = 1, c_{1} = -10

a_{2} = 1, b_{2} = 7, c_{2} = -10

a_{1}/a_{2} = 7/1

b_{1}/b_{2} = 1/7

a_{1}/a_{2} â‰ b_{1}/b_{2}

Hence, the given pair of linear equations are consistent and have a unique solution.

**7. **Represent A â‹‚ B through Venn diagram, where A = {1, 4, 6, 9, 10} and B = {perfect squares less than 25}.

**Solution:**

Given,

A = {1, 4, 6, 9, 10}

B = {perfect squares less than 25} = {1, 4, 9, 16}

A â‹‚ B = {1, 4, 6, 9, 10} â‹‚ {1, 4, 9, 16} = {1, 4, 9}

**SECTION – II**

**8. **Write any two three digit numbers. Find their LCM and GCD by prime factorisation method.

**Solution:**

Let 126 and 340 are the two three digit numbers.

Prime factorisation of 126:

126 = 2 Ã— 3 Ã— 3 Ã— 7

Prime factorisation of 340:

340 = 2 Ã— 2 Ã— 5 Ã— 17

LCM = 2 Ã— 2 Ã— 3 Ã— 3 Ã— 7 Ã— 5 Ã— 17 = 21420

GCD = 2

**9. **Find the sum of first 10 terms of an AP

3, 15, 27, 39,….

**Solution:**

Given AP:

3, 15, 27, 39,…

First term = a = 3

Common difference = d = 12

Sum of the first n terms

S_{n} = n/2[2a + (n – 1)d

S_{10} = (10/2) [2(3) + (10 – 1)12]

= 5(6 + 108)

= 5 Ã— 114

= 570

Hence, the sum of the first 10 terms of the given AP is 570.

**10.** Which of âˆš2 and 2 is a zero of the polynomial p(x) = x^{3} – 2x? Why?

**Solution:**

Given,

p(x) = x^{3} – 2x

p(âˆš2) = (âˆš2)^{3} – 2(âˆš2) = 2âˆš2 – 2âˆš2 = 0

p(2) = (2)^{3} – 2(2) = 8 – 4 = 4 â‰ 0

Therefore, âˆš2 is the zero of the given polynomial.

**11. **The sum of a number and its reciprocal is 10/3. Find the number.

**Solution:**

Let x be any number.

According to the given,

x + 1/x = 10/3

(x^{2} + 1)/x = 10/3

3(x^{2} + 1) = 10x

3x^{2} + 3 – 10x = 0

3x^{2} – 9x – x + 3 = 0

3x(x – 3) – 1(x – 3) = 0

(3x – 1)(x – 3) = 0

3x – 1 = 0, x – 3 = 0

x = 1/3, x = 3

Hence, the required number is 3 or 1/3.

**12. **Two vertices of a triangle are (3, 2), (-2, 1) and its centroid is (5/3, -1/3). Find the third vertex of the triangle.

**Solution:**

Given,

Two vertices of a triangle are (3, 2), (-2, 1).

Centroid = (5/3, -â…“)

Let (x, y) be the third vertex.

Using centroid formula,

(5/3, -1/3) = [(x_{1} + x_{2} + x_{3})/2, (y_{1} + y_{2} + y_{3})/3]

(5/3, -1/3) = [(3 – 2 + x)/3, (2 + 1 + y)/3]

(5/3, -1/3) = [(1 + x)/3, (3 + y)/3]

â‡’ (1 + x)/3 = 5/3, (3 + y)3 = -1/3

â‡’ 1 + x = 5, 3 + y = -1

â‡’ x = 4, y = -4

Hence, the third vertex of the triangle is (4, -4).

**13. **Find the angle made by the line joining (5, 3) and (-1, -3) with the positive direction of X-axis.

**Solution:**

Let the given points be:

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (5, 3)

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (-1, -3)

Slope = m = (y_{2} – y_{1})/(x_{2} – x_{1})

= (-3 – 3)/(-1 – 5)

= -6/-6

= 1

Let Î¸ be the angle made by the line with x-axis.

We know that,

m = tan Î¸

1 = tan Î¸

tan 45Â° = tan Î¸

Î¸ = 45Â°

Hence, the required angle is 45Â°.

**SECTION – III**

**14. **From the following Venn diagram, write the elements of the sets of A and B. And verify n(A â‹ƒ B) + n(A â‹‚ B) = n(A) + n(B).

**Solution:**

A = {a, c, d, f, h}

B = {a, b, d, e, g, h}

A â‹ƒ B = {a, c, d, f, h} â‹ƒ {a, b, d, e, g, h} = {a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h}

A â‹‚ B = {a, c, d, f, h} â‹‚ {a, b, d, e, g, h} = {a, d, h}

n(A) = 5

n(B) = 6

n(A â‹ƒ B} = 8

n(A â‹‚ B) = 3

n(A â‹ƒ B) + n(A â‹‚ B) = 8 + 3 = 11

n(A) + n(B) = 5 + 6 = 11

Therefore, n(A â‹ƒ B) + n(A â‹‚ B) = n(A) + n(B)

**OR**

Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the square of any positive integer is of the form 5n or 5n + 1 or 5n + 4, where n is a whole number.

**Solution:**

Let a be any positive integer and b = 5.

By Euclid division lemma,

a = bq + r, where 0 â‰¤ r < b

â‡’ a = 5q + r; r = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4

When r = 0,

a = 5q

aÂ² = (5q)Â²

aÂ² = 25qÂ²

aÂ² = 5(5qÂ²)

aÂ² = 5n

where n = 5qÂ²

When r = 1,

a = 5q + 1

aÂ² = (5q + 1)Â²

aÂ² = 25qÂ² + 10q + 1

aÂ² = 5(5qÂ² + 2q) + 1

aÂ² = 5n + 1

where n = 5qÂ² + 2q

When r = 2,

a = 5q + 2

aÂ² = (5q + 2)Â²

aÂ² = 25qÂ² + 20q + 4

aÂ² = 5(5qÂ² + 4q) + 4

aÂ² = 5n + 4

where n = 5qÂ² + 4q

When r = 3,

a = 5q + 3

aÂ² = (5q + 3)Â²

aÂ² = 25qÂ² + 30q + 5 + 4

aÂ² = 5(5qÂ² + 6q + 1) + 4

aÂ² = 5n + 4

where n = 5qÂ² + 6q + 1

When r = 4,

a = 5q + 4

aÂ² = (5q + 4)Â²

aÂ² = 25qÂ² + 40q + 15 + 1

aÂ² = 5(5qÂ² + 8q + 3) + 1

aÂ² = 5n + 1

where n = 5qÂ² + 8q + 3

Hence, the square of any positive integer is of the form 5n or 5n + 1 or 5n + 4, where n is a whole number.

**15. **Find the sum of all three digit natural numbers, which are divisible by 3 and not divisible by 6.

**Solution:**

Three digit natural numbers that are divisible by 3:

102, 105, 108, 111, 114,…,993, 996, 999

Three digit natural numbers that are divisible by 3 but not by 6:

105, 111, 117,…, 993, 999

This is an AP with a = 105, d = 6 and a_{n} = 999

nth term of AP

a_{n} = a + (n – 1)d

999 = 105 + (n – 1)6

â‡’ (n – 1)6 = 999 – 105

â‡’ n – 1 = 894/6

â‡’ n – 1 = 149

â‡’ n = 149 + 1

â‡’ n = 150

Sum of the first n terms

S_{n} = n/2(a + an)

S_{150} = (150/2) Ã— (105 + 999)

= 75 Ã— 1104

= 82800

Hence, the required sum is 82800.

**OR**

Divide 3x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 4x^{2} + 3x – 5 by x^{2} – 3 and verify the division algorithm.

**Solution:**

Let p(x) = 3x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 4x^{2} + 3x – 5

g(x) = x^{2} – 3

Quotient = q(x) = 3x^{2} – 5x + 13

Remainder = r(x) = -12x + 34

By division algorithm,

p(x) = [g(x) q(x)] + r(x)

g(x) q(x) + r(x) = (x^{2} – 3)(3x^{2} – 5x + 13) -12x + 34

= 3x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 13x^{2} – 9x^{2} + 15x – 39 – 12x + 34

= 3x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 4x^{2} + 3x – 5

= p(x)

Hence verified.

**16. **The perimeter of a right-angles triangle is 60 cm and its hypotenuse is 25 cm. Find the remaining two sides.

**Solution:**

Let ABC be the right triangle in which B is the right angle.

Given,

Hypotenuse = AC = 25 cm

Perimeter = 60 cm

AB + BC + AC = 60

AB + BC + 25 = 60

AB + BC = 35 cm

By Pythagoras theorem,

AC^{2} = AB^{2} + BC^{2}

(25)^{2} = AB^{2} + (35 – AB)^{2}

625 = AB^{2} + 1225 + AB^{2} – 70AB

2AB^{2} – 70AB + 1225 – 625 = 0

2AB^{2} – 70AB + 600 = 0

AB^{2} – 35AB + 300 = 0

Let AB = x

x^{2} – 35x + 300 = 0

x^{2} – 20x – 15x + 300 = 0

x(x – 20) – 15(x – 20) = 0

(x – 15)(x – 20) = 0

x = 15, x = 20

Therefore, the remaining sides of the triangle are 15 cm and 20 cm.

**OR**

The points C and D are on the line segment joining A(-4, 7) and B(5, 13) such that AC = CD = DB. Then find coordinates of points C and D.

**Solution:**

Given,

The points C and D are on the line segment joining A(-4, 7) and B(5, 13) such that AC = CD = DB.

C divided AB in the ratio 1 : 2.

m : n = 1 : 2

Using section formula,

C = [(mx_{2} + nx_{1})/ (m + n), (my_{2} + ny_{1})/ (m + n)]

= [(5 – 8)/ (1 + 2), (13 + 14)/(1 + 2)]

= (-3/3, 27/3)

= (-1, 9)

D is the midpoint of BC.

D = [(-1 + 5)/2, (9 + 13)/2]

= (4/2, 22/2)

= (2, 11)

Therefore, C = (-1, 9) and D = (2, 11)

**17. **Draw the graph for the polynomial p(x) = x^{2} – 5x + 6 and find the zeroes from the graph.

**Solution:**

Given,

p(x) = x^{2} – 5x + 6

x | -1 | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 5 |

p(x) | 12 | 6 | 2 | 0 | 0 | 6 |

Parabola intersecting the x-axis at (2, 0) and (3, 0).

Hence, the zeroes of the given polynomial are 2 and 3.

**OR**

Draw the graph of 2x + y = 6 and 2x – y + 2 = 0 and find the solution from the graph.

**Solution:**

Given,

2x + y = 6

2x – y + 2 = 0

Consider the first equation:

2x + y = 6

y = -2x + 6

x | -2 | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 |

y | 10 | 6 | 4 | 2 | 0 |

Now, consider another equation:

2x – y + 2 = 0

y = 2x + 2

Graph:

The lines representing the given pair of equations intersecting each other at (1, 4).

Hence, the solution is x = 1 and y = 4.
