QUESTION: 1

### In the following questions two equations numbered I and II are given. You have to solve both the equations and give answer. I. 3x2 + 5x = 2 II. 3y2 + 3 = 10y

Solution:

3x2 + 5x - 2 = 0
⇒ 3x2 - 6x + x - 2 = 0
⇒ 3x (x - 2) + 1 (x - 2) = 0
⇒ (3x + 1) (x - 2) = 0

QUESTION: 2

Solution:

QUESTION: 3

### I. (x + 1)2 = 32 II. 2y2 - 11y + 15 = 0

Solution:

(x + 1)2 = 32
⇒ x2 + 1 + 2x = 9
⇒ x2 + 2x - 8 = 0
⇒ x2 + 4x - 2x - 8 = 0
⇒ x(x + 4) - 2(x + 4) = 0
⇒ (x - 2) (x + 4) = 0
⇒ x = 2, -4
Also,
2y2 - 11y + 15 = 0
⇒ 2y2 - 6y - 5y + 15 = 0
⇒ 2y(y - 3) - 5(y - 3) = 0
⇒ (2y - 5) (y - 3) = 0

Total number of typres produced in 1992 = (25 + 20 + 30) lakh = 75 lakh
Total number of tyres produced in 1993 = (20+30+25) lakh = 75 lakh
Total number of tyres produced in 1994 = (30+27.5 +22.5) lakh = 80 lakh
Total number of tyres produced in 1995= (27.5 +35+22.5) lakh = 85 lakh
Total number of tyres produced in 1996 = (12.5+22.5+30) lakh = 65 lakh

QUESTION: 8

Jagtap purchases 30 kg of wheat at the rate of Rs 11.50/kg and 20 kg of wheat at the rate of Rs 14.25/kg. He mixed the 2 and sold the mixture. Approximately at what price per kg should he sell the mixture to make 30% profit?

Solution:

Cost of 30 kg of wheat at the rate of Rs 11.50/kg = 11.50 × 30 = Rs 345.00
Cost of 20 kg of wheat at the rate of Rs 14.25/kg = 14.25 × 20 = Rs 285.00
Total cost of 50 kg of wheat = 345 + 285 = Rs 630.00
cost of 1 kg of wheat = 630/50 = Rs 12.60
16.38 = Rs 16.40

QUESTION: 20

Twenty men can finish a piece of work in 30 days.When should 5 men leave the work so that it may be finished in 35 days?

Solution:

The work requires 20 × 30 = 600 worker days.
Let x be the number of days before the 5 men leave.
You will then have x days with 20 workers and (35 - x) days with 15 workers.
Hence, 20× x + 15 × (35 - x) = 600
20x + 525 - 15x = 600
5x = 75
x = 15
So The five men should leave work after 15 days.

QUESTION: 51

The writer believes that the work experience should focus more on the development in students of the ability to work with the materials of their environment and solve problems as close to reality as is practicable.
Work experience is included as a separate subject in the school system, should not be treated in the same manner as other school subjects, i.e., accumulation of certain technical facts with a superficial blessing of practical aspect of this new subject in our school curriculum.
Work experience when included as a separate subject in our school curriculum will no doubt entail huge investment. But if the concept of work experience is implemented with a sincere and competent guidance, this above investment will be a great asset to our nation.
Let us suppose, that work experience is designed in such a manner to be productive and self-sufficient, it may have some negative reaction from local small scale producers of those consumer goods. However, an assumption is made in the above conviction that the quality of consumer articles produced by a school would be good enough to compete the market.
Ignoring all the inherent dangers discussed earlier of incorporating work experience as a separate subject in our school curriculum, it may still be worthwhile to include work experience level in science teaching even with work experience as a separate subject.
This concept of work experience in science teaching would help to provide a proper training (or development of scientific attitude) in work experience as a separate subject and in useful occupations or vocations to our students. The above training may encourage students to set up small scale industries after their completion of grade ten. This above approach may give some satisfaction to our tax payers that the investment in the educational endeavour is not a total wastage of their money.
The writer's experience (in various countries) suggests that to make work experience a worthwhileexperience, it should also be incorporated as an integral part into the high school subjects, especially science subjects. To accomplish this, any school subject especially science must be taught on four levels; the facts level, the concepts level, the values level, and the work experience level.
