Answer: Let two angles A and B are supplementary.

A + B = 180° …(i)

Given, A = B + 18°

On putting A = B + 18° in equation (i),

we get B + 18° + B = 180°

⇒ 2B + 18° = 180°

⇒ 2B = 162°

⇒ B = 81°

A = B + 18°

⇒ A = 99°

OR

Answer: Given, a radius of small sphere be r = 3 cm

Both spheres are made by the same metal, then their densities will be same.

Let radius of bigger sphere = r’ then,

Then according to question, we have,

Volume of bigger sphere + Volume of smaller sphere = Volume of new sphere.

4/3(r)3  + 4/3 (r)3 = 4/3 (R)3

⇒ r’3 + r3 = R3

⇒ 189 + 27 = R3

⇒ 216 = R3

⇒ R = 6

D = 6 × 2 = 12

Radius of new sphere is 6 cm.

So, the diameter is 12 cm.

Q.18. In Figure 4, a square OABC is inscribed in a quadrant OPBQ. If OA = 15 cm, find the area of the shaded region. (Use π = 3.14)

OR

Q.18. In Figure 5, ABCD is a square with side 2√2 cm and inscribed in a circle. Find the area of the shaded region. (Use π = 3.14)

Answer: Given, OABC is a square with OA = 15 cm

OB = radius = r

 Let side of square be a then,

a2 + a2 = r2

⇒ 2a2 = r2

⇒ r = √2 a

⇒ r = 15√2 cm (∵ a = 15 cm)

Area of square = Side × Side = 15 × 15 = 225 cm2

Area of shaded region = Area of quadrant OPBQ – Area of square

= 353.25 – 225 = 128.25 cm

OR

Answer: Given, ABCD is a square with side 2√2 cm

BD = 2r

In ∆BDC,

BD2 = DC2 + BC2

⇒ 4r2 = 2(DC)2 (∵ DC = CB = Side = 2√2 )

⇒ 4r2 = 2 × 2√2 × 2√2

⇒ 4r2 = 8 × 2

⇒ 4r2 = 16

⇒ r2 = 4

⇒ r = 2 cm

Area of square BCDA = Side × Side = DC × BC = 2√2 × 2√2 = 8 cm2

Area of circle = πr2 = 3.14 × 2 × 2 = 12.56 cm2

Area of shaded region = Area of circle – Area of square. = 12.56 – 8 = 4.56 cm2

 

Q.19. A solid is in the form of a cylinder with hemispherical ends. The total height of the solid is 20 cm and the diameter of the cylinder is 7 cm. Find the total volume of the solid. (Use π = 22/7).

Answer: ABCD is a cylinder and BFC and AED are two hemispheres which has radius (r) = 7/2 cm

Total volume of solid = Volume of two hemisphere + Volume of cylinder

Q.22. Write all the values of p for which the quadratic equation x2 + px + 16 = 0 has equal roots. Find the roots of the equation so obtained. 

Answer: Given, equation is x2 + px + 16 = 0

This is of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0

where, a = 1, b = p and c = 16

D = b2 – 4ac = p2 – 4 × 1 × 16 = p2 – 64

for equal roots, we have D = 0

p2 – 64 = 0

⇒ p2 = 64

⇒ p = ±8 Putting p = 8 in given equation we have,

x2 + 8x + 16 = 0

⇒ (x + 4)2 = 0

⇒ x + 4 = 0⇒ x = -4

Now, putting p = -8 in the given equation, we get

x2  > – 8x + 16 = 0

⇒ (x – 4)2 = 0

⇒ x = 4

Required roots are -4 and -4 or 4 and 4.

Q.23. In a triangle, if the square of one side is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then prove that the angle opposite the first side is a right angle. 

Answer: Given, ∆ABC in which AC2 = AB2 + BC2

To prove: ∠B = 90°Construction : Draw a ∆DEF such that

DE = AB, EF = BC and ∠E = 90°.

Proof: In ∆DEF we have ∠E = 90°

So, by Pythagoras theorem, we have

DF2 = DE2 + EF2

⇒ DF2 = AB2 + BC2 …(i)

(∵ DE = AB and EF = BC)

AC2 = AB2 + BC2 …(ii) (Given)

From equation (i) and (ii), we get

AC2 = DF2 ⇒ AC = DF.

Now, in ∆ABC and ∆DEF, we have

AB = DE, BC = EF and AC = DF.

∆ABC = ∆DEF.

Hence, ∠B = ∠E = 90°.

Hence Proved.

 

Q.24. From a point P on the ground, the angle of elevation of the top of the tower is 30° and that of the top of the flag-staff fixed on the top of the tower is 45°. If the length of the flag-staff is 5 m, find the height of the tower. (Use √3 = 1.732) [4]

Answer: Let AB be the tower and BC be the flag-staff.

Let P be a point on the ground such that

∠APB = 30° and ∠APC = 45°, BC = 5 m

Let AB = h m and PA = x metres

From right ∆PAB, we have

Hence, the height of the tower is 6.83 m

 

Q.25. A right cylindrical container of radius 6 cm and height 15 cm is full of ice-cream, which has to be distributed to 10 children in equal cones having a hemispherical shape on the top. If the height of the conical portion is four times its base radius, find the radius of the ice-cream cone.

Answer: Let R and H be the radius and height of the cylinder.

Given, R = 6 cm, H = 15 cm.

Volume of ice-cream in the cylinder = πR2H = π × 36 × 15 = 540π cm3

Let the radius of cone be r cm

Height of the cone (h) = 4r

Radius of hemispherical portion = r cm.

Volume of ice-cream in cone = Volume of cone + Volume of the hemisphere

Number of ice cream cones distributed to the children = 10

⇒ 10 × Volume of ice-cream in each cone = Volume of ice-cream in cylindrical container

⇒ 10 × 2πr =540π

⇒ 20r3 = 540 

⇒ r3 = 27

⇒ r = 3

Thus, the radius of the ice-cream cone is 3 cm.

 

Q.26. Construct an equilateral ∆ABC with each side 5 cm. Then construct another triangle whose sides are ⅔ times the corresponding sides. Draw two concentric circles of radii 2 cm and 5 cm. Take a point P on the outer circle and construct a pair of tangents PA and PB to the smaller circle. Measure PA.

Answer: Steps for construction are as follows:

  1. Draw a line segment BC = 5 cm
  2. At B and C construct ∠CBX = 60° and ∠BCX = 60°
  3. With B as centre and radius 5 cm, draw an arc cutting ray BX at A. On graph paper, we take the scale.
  4. Join AC. Thus an equilateral ∆ABC is obtained.
  1. Below BC, make an acute angle ∠CBY
  2. Along BY, mark off 3 points B1, B2, B3 Such that BB1, B1B2, B2B3 are equal.
  3. Join B3C
  4. From B2 draw B2D || B3C, meeting BC at D
  5. From D, draw DE || CA, meeting AB at E.

Then ∆EBD is the required triangle, each of whose sides is ⅔ of the corresponding side of ∆ABC.

Q.29. Which term of the Arithmetic Progression -7, -12, -17, -22,…..will be -82? Is -100 any term of the A.P.? Give a reason for your answer. 

OR

Q.29. How many terms of the Arithmetic Progression 45, 39, 33, … must be taken so that their sum is 180? Explain the double answer.

Answer:-7, -12, -17, -22, …….

Here a = -7, d = -12 – (-7) = -12 + 7 = -5

Let Tn = -82Tn = a + (n – 1) d

⇒ -82 = -7 + (n – 1) (-5)

⇒ -82 = -7 – 5n + 5

⇒ -82 = -2 – 5n

⇒ -82 + 2 = -5n

⇒ -80 = -5n

⇒ n = 16

Therefore, 16th term will be -82.

Let Tn = -100

Again, Tn = a + (n -1) d

⇒ -100 = -7 + (n – 1) (-5)

⇒ -100 = -7 – 5n + 5

⇒ -100 = – 2 – 5n

⇒ -100 + 2 = -5n

⇒ -98 = -5n

⇒ n = 98/5 

But the number of terms can not be in fraction.

So, -100 can not be the term of this A.P.

OR

Answer: 45, 39, 33, …..

Here a = 45, d = 39 – 45 = -6

Let Sn = 180

⇒ n/2 [ 2a + (n – 1) d] = 180

⇒ n/2 [2 × 45 + (n – 1) (-6)] = 180

⇒ n/2 [90 – 6n + 6] = 180

⇒ n/2 [96 – 6n] = 180

⇒ n(96 – 6n) = 360

⇒ 96n – 6n2 = 360

⇒ 6n2 – 96n + 360 = 0

On dividing the above equation by 6

⇒ n2 – 16n + 60 = 0

⇒ n2 – 10n – 6n + 60 = 0

⇒ n(n – 10) – 6 (n – 10) = 0

⇒ (n – 10) (n – 6) = 0

⇒ n = 10, 6

Sum of first 10 terms = Sum of first 6 terms = 180

This means that the sum of all terms from 7th to 10th is zero.

 

Q.30. In a class test, the sum of Aran’s marks in Hindi and English is 30. Had he got 2 marks more in Hindi and 3 marks less in English, the product of the marks would have been 210. Find his marks in the two subjects.

Answer: Let Aran marks in Hindi be x and marks in English be y.

Then, according to question, we have

x + y = 30 …(i)(x + 2)(y – 3) = 210 …(ii)

from equation (i) put x = 30 – y in equation (ii)

(30 – y + 2) (y – 3) = 210

⇒ (32 – y) (y – 3) = 210

⇒ 32y – 96 – y2 + 3y = 210

⇒ y2 – 35y + 306 = 0

⇒ y2 – 18y – 17y + 306 = 0

⇒ y(y – 18) – 17(y – 18) = 0

⇒ (y – 18) (y – 17) = o

⇒ y = 18, 17

Put y = 18 and 17 in equation (i), we get x = 12, 13

Hence his marks in hindi can be 12 and 13 and in english his marks can be 18 and 17.
