Q.13. Check whether the relation R defined on the set A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} as R = {(a, b) : b = a + 1} is reflexive, symmetric or transitive. 

Solution: Here, R = {(a, b): b = a +1}

 ∴ R = {(a, a + 1): a, a + 1 ϵ (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ,6)}

 ⇒ R = {(1, 2,) (2, 3), (3, 4), (4, 5), (5, 6)}

(i) R is not reflexive as {a, a} ∉ R∀a

(ii) R is not symmetric as (1, 2) ϵ R but (2, 1) ∉ R

(iii) R is not transitive as (1, 2) ϵ R, (2, 3) ϵ R but (1, 3) ϵ R

Q.26. Using method of integration, find the area of the region enclosed between two circles x2 + y2 = 4 and (x – 2)2 + y2 = 4.

Solution: Equations of the given circles are,

x2 + y2 = 4 …(i)

(x – 2)2 + y2 = 4 …(ii)

Equation (i) is a circle with centre O at the origin and radius 2. Equation (ii) is a circle with centre C (2, 0) and radius 2.

Solving equation (i) and (ii) we have

(x – 2)2 + y2 = x2 + y2

or x2 – 4x + 4 + y2 = x2 + y2 or x = 1 which gives y = ±

Thus, the points of intersection of the given circles are A (1, 3) and A (1, 3)

Q.28. There are three coins. One is a two-headed coin, another is a biased coin that comes up heads 75% of the time and the third is an unbiased coin. One of the three coins is chosen at random and tossed. If it shows heads, what is the probability that it is the two-headed coin?

Solution: Given, there are three coins.


E1 = coin is two headed

E2 = biased coin

E3 = unbiased coin

A = shows only head


Q.29. A company produces two types of goods, A and B, that require gold and silver. Each unit of type A requires 3g of silver and 1 g of gold while that of type B requires 1 g of silver and 2g of gold. The company can use at most 9 g of silver and 8 of gold. If each unit of type A brings a profit of ₹ 40 and that of type B ₹ 50, find the number of units of each type that the company should produce to maximize profit. Formulate the above LPP and solve it graphically and also find the maximum profit.

Solution: There are two types of goods, A and B and let units of type A be x and units of type B be y.
