QUESTION: 1

### A trapezium based prism with two parallel sides 8 cm and 14 cm respectively and distance between two parallel sides is 8 cm. Find the height of the prism if the volume of the prism is 1056 ?

Solution:

Volume of prism = (Base area) × height.

Base Area = Area of trapezium
= 1/2(8 + 14) × 8 = 88
∴ 1056 = 88 × height QUESTION: 2

Solution: QUESTION: 3

### The maximum value of 24 sin θ + 7 cos θ is?

Solution:

y = 24 sin x + 7 cos x

dy/dx = 24 cos x - 7 sin x = 0

7 sin x = 24 cos x, or

sin x / cos x = 24/7

Or sin x = 24/(24^2+7*2)^0.5 = 24/(576+49)^0.5 = 24/25 and cos = 7/25.

Thus the max value of y = 24*24/25 + 7*7/25

= (576+49)/25

= 625/25

QUESTION: 4

Find the maximum value of : Solution: QUESTION: 5

Solution: QUESTION: 7

A money lender finds that due to a fall in the annual rate of interest from 8% to 73/4%, his yearly income has diminished by Rs 61.50. What is his capital amount?

Solution:

Let Capital invested is X

X(8%-7.75%)= 61.50

X = 61.50/.0025= Rs. 24,600/-

Income when interest rate is 8%

24600* 8%= 1968

Interest when interest reduced to 7.75%

24600 * 7.75% = 1906.5

Difference Amount Rs. 61.5

Therefore Capital Amount is Rs. 24,600/-

Solution:

Let C.P. of 1 litre milk = 10/-
bought milk = x litre then C.P. = 10x
Let water mixed in milk = y litre
then quality = (x + y) litre
Mixture is sold on C.P.
then S.P. = 10 (x + y)
= 10x + 10y
profit = S.P. – C.P. = (10x + 10y) – (10x)= 10y QUESTION: 26
