Solution: All equations are resulting 2x2 - 3xy + y2
except (B) gives
2x2 - xy - y2
QUESTION: 3

### x2(y - z) + y2(z-x) + z2(x - y) can be factorised as

Solution: x2 (y - z) + y2 (z - x) + z2 (x - y)
= x2y - x2z + y2z - y2x + z2x - z2y
= xy(x - y) - xz (x - y) - zy (x - y) + z2 (x - y)
= (x - y) [xy - xz - zy + z2]
= (x - y) [x(y - z) - z (y - z)]
= (x - y) (y - z) (x - z)
= - (x - y) (y - z) (z - x)
QUESTION: 4

In a certain party,there was a bowl of rice for every two guests,a bowl of broth for every three of them and a bowl of meat for every four of them. If in all,there were 65 bowls of food,then how many guests were there in the party?

Solution:

Let the number of rice bowls be x, number of broth bowls be y
and number of meat bowls be z
∴ x + y + z = 65 .....(1)
and 2x = 3y = 4z .....(2)
By solving both the equation we get x = 30, y = 20 and z = 15 So, number of guests = 30 × 2 = 20 × 3 = 15 × 4 = 60

The sides of a triangle are in the ratio 13:14:15 and its perimeter is 168cm. The length of the altitude corresponding to the longest side is

Solution:

Ratio of sides = 13 : 14 : 15
Perimeter of triangle = 168 cm
Let the sides are 13x, 14x, and 15x
∴ 13x + 14x + 15x = 168
⇒ 42x = 168
⇒ x = 4
∴ sides are 13 × 4 = 52 cm
14 × 4 = 56 cm
15 × 4 = 60 cm  QUESTION: 9

The average weight of a class of 24 students is 35 kg. If the weight of the teacher be included, the average rises by 400 g. The weight of the teacher is:

QUESTION: 11

A sum of money lent out at simple interests amounts to Rs. 720 after 2 years and to Rs. 1020 after a further period of 5 years. The sum is :

Solution:

Principal + SI for 2 years = Rs 720 ……(I)
Principal + SI for 7 years = Rs 1020 ……(II)
Subtracting equation (I) from (II),
S.I. for 5 years = (1020 – 720) = Rs 300
∴ S.I. for 2 years = 300 x 2/5 = Rs 120
∴ Principal = (720 – 120) = Rs 600

sider the right triangle ABD
have x2 + x2 = (10 + 10)2
⇒ 2x2 = 400
x2 = 200
Area of square = 200 sq units
One of circle = πr2 = 22/7 x (10)2 = 314 sq units
One of shaded region not included in square
= 314 sq unit - 200 sq unit
= 114 sq unit.

Solution:
QUESTION: 20

ABC is a triangle. ∠A = 80º, ∠C = 60º. The measure of (yº - xº) is Solution: ∠ABC = 180º - (∠BAC + ∠ACB)
∠ABC = 180º - 140º
∠ABC = 40º
But ∠ABC = 2xº
⇒ 2x = 40º
⇒ xº = 20º
Hence,
∠BOC = 180º - (20º + 30º)
∠BOC = 130º
⇒ yº - xº = 130º - 20º
yº - xº = 110º

Solution:

Clearly, the roots of x2 + √2x + 1 = 0 are nonreal complex. So, one root common implies both roots are common. QUESTION: 30
An alloy contains copper and Zinc in the ratio 5:2 and another alloy containing Zinc and tin in the ratio 3:4. If two parts of first alloy and one part of second alloy are melted together to form a new alloy of copper,zinc and tin, the ratio of metals in the new alloy will be
Solution: Allay A contains Copper and Zinc in the ratio 5 : 2
Alloy B contains Zinc and tin in the ratio 3 : 4
The new alloy contains 2 parts of alloy A that means copper and zinc ratio is 10 : 4
And
One part of alloy B that means zinc and tin ratio is 3 : 4
So copper = 10
Zinc = 4 + 3 = 7
tin = 4
So the ratio of metals in the new alloy will be 10 : 7 : 4
