The ratio of the sixth and the seventh terms of the sequence 1, 3, 6, 10, ___

Solution:

Difference of consecutive terms: 2,3,4,5,6,7,8……

We can see that the difference of consecutive terms in the sequence are in AP with first term 2 and common difference = 1.

∴ n^{th} term of this sequence (1,3,6,10,……) is given as, a_n = a_(n - 1) + (2 + (n - 2)d), n ≥ 2.

Now, a_{5} = a_{4} + (2 + (5 - 2)1) = 10 + (2 + 3) = 10 + 5 = 15

a_{6} = a_{5} + (2 + (6−2)1) = 15 + (2+4) = 15 + 6 = 21

a_{7} = a_{6 }+ (2 + (7−2)1) = 21+(2+5) = 21 + 7 = 28

Now, a_{6}/a_{7} = 21/28 = 3/4

QUESTION: 19

What is the value of [(a^{-2}b^{3}) ÷ (a^{1}b^{-1})] × [(a^{2}b^{-4}) ÷ (a^{-1}b^{2})]?

Solution:

[(a^{-2}b^{3}) ÷ (a^{1}b^{-1})] × [(a^{2}b^{-4}) ÷ (a^{-1}b^{2})]

Using BODMAS rule a^{m} ÷ a^{n} = a^{m - n}

[(a^{-2}b^{3}) ÷ (a^{1}b^{-1})] × [(a^{2}b^{-4}) ÷ (a^{-1}b^{2})]

= a^{-2 - 1}b^{3-(-1)} × a^{2-(-1)}b^{-4 - 2}

a^{-3}b^{4} × a^{3}b^{-6}

a^{m} × a^{n} = a^{m + n}

= a^{-3 + 3}b^{4 - 6}

= b^{-2}

= 1/b^{2}

QUESTION: 20

In a right angled triangle if sinB = (5/13) then find the value of tanB + cosecB.

Solution:

Given sinB = (5/13) = Perpendicular/hypotenuse

⇒ We know that (Hypotenuse)^{2} = (Perpendicular)^{2} + (Base)^{2}

⇒ (13)^{2} = (5)^{2} + (Base)^{2}

⇒ (Base)^{2} = (13)^{2} - (5)^{2}

⇒ (Base)^{2} = 169 - 25

⇒ (Base)^{2} = 144

⇒ (Base) = √144

⇒ (Base) = 12

⇒ cosB = Base/hypotenuse = 12/13

⇒ tanB = Sin B/Cos B

⇒ tanB = (5/13)/(12/13)

⇒ tanB = 5/12

⇒ cosecB = (1/Sin B) = (13/5)

⇒ tanB + cosecB = (5/12) + (13/5)

⇒ (25 + 156)/60

⇒ 181/60

∴ Required value is 181/60

QUESTION: 21

The sum of two numbers is 32 and the multiplication of both number is 156. The HCF of the number is ...

Solution:

Let us assume the one of the numbers as x and the other as y,

⇒ x + y = 32 ---- (I)

⇒ x × y = 156

⇒ x = 156/y ----(II)

Substitute the value of Eq(II) in Eq(I),

⇒ (156/y) + y = 32

⇒ 156 + y^{2} = 32y

⇒ y^{2} – 32y + 156 = 0

⇒ (y – 6)(y – 26) = 0

⇒ y = 6 or 26

Let us consider y = 6,

Value of x = 156/6 = 26

Factors of 6 = 3 × 2 = 2, 3

Factors of 26 = 13 × 2 = 2, 13

∴ HCF(6, 26) = 2

QUESTION: 22

2. 54 ÷ 6 × 2 - (10 × 4) = 9 × 2 - 40 = - 22 ≠ 82

3. 54 ÷ 6 × (2 - 10) × 4 = 9 × (- 8) × 4 = - 288 ≠ 82

4. (54 ÷ 6) × 10 - 4 × 2 = 9 × 10 - 8 = 82

QUESTION: 87

A shopkeeper announced a discount of 30%, such that he earned a profit of 16.67% on all his products. If the profit earned is Rs. 250, what is its marked price?

Solution:

Let the marked price of the product be Rs. ‘x’

⇒ Discount = 30% of x = 0.3x

⇒ Selling price = Marked price – Discount = x – 0.3x = 0.7x

Now,

⇒ Profit earned = 16.67% of Cost Price = CP/6

Also,

⇒ Selling price = Cost price + Profit

⇒ 0.7x = CP + (CP/6)

⇒ 0.7x = (7/6)CP

⇒ CP = 0.6x

⇒ Profit earned = CP/6 = 0.6x/6 = 0.1x

As, Profit earned = Rs. 250

⇒ 0.1x = 250

⇒ x = 250/0.1 = Rs. 2500

∴ Marked price of product is Rs. 2500

QUESTION: 95

The height of an equilateral triangle is 15 cm. The area of the triangle is

Solution:

We know that **each angle in an equilateral triangle is 60°**.

So, applying trigonometric formulae in this question we get,

In ΔABD,

tan 60° = AD/BD

⇒ √3 = 15/BD

⇒ BD = 5 √3 cm.

Since, AD is the height of an equilateral triangle; it divides BC into two equal parts, so,

BC = 2 × BD

⇒ BC = 10 √3

Now Area of a Triangle = ½ × Base × Height

⇒ Area = ½ × BC × AD

⇒ Area = ½ × 10 √3 × 15

⇒ Area = 75 √3 cm^{2}

QUESTION: 96

The difference between the simple interest on Rs. X at 10% p.a. and the simple interest on Rs. Y at 8% p.a. after 3 years is Rs. 2100. What will be the difference after 7 years?

Solution:

As,

⇒ Simple interest = (Principal × Rate × Time)/100

Now,

⇒ Simple interest on Rs. X at 10% p.a. after 3 years = (X × 10 × 3)/100 = 0.3X

⇒ Simple interest on Rs. Y at 8% p.a. after 3 years = (Y × 8 × 3)/100 = 0.24Y

⇒ Given difference 2100

⇒ 0.3X – 0.24Y = 2100

⇒ 0.1X – 0.08Y = 700 ----(1)

Now,

⇒ Simple interest on Rs. X at 10% p.a. after 7 years = (X × 10 × 7)/100 = 0.7X

⇒ Simple interest on Rs. Y at 8% p.a. after 7 years = (Y × 8 × 7)/100 = 0.56Y

⇒ Required difference = 0.7X – 0.56Y = 7(0.1X – 0.08Y)

Substituting from (1),

∴ Required difference = 7 × 700 = Rs. 4900
