QUESTION: 1

The equation of line of intersection of the planes x + 2y + z = 3 and 6x + 8y + 3z = 13 can be written as

Solution:

Let the d.r’s of a required line be a, b and c. Since, the normal to the given planes x + 2y + z = 3 and 6x + 8y + 3z = 13 are perpendicular to the line.

∴ a +2b+c = 0 and 6a + 8b + 3c = 0

QUESTION: 2

The direction cosines of two lines are such that l + m + n = 0, l^{2} + m^{2} – n^{2} = 0, then angle between them is

Solution:

l + m + n = 0

and l^{2} + m^{2} - n^{2} = 0

l^{2} + m^{2} (- l - m)^{2} = 0

2lm = 0 (l = 0 or m = 0)

If l = 0 then n = - m

l : m : n = 0 : l : -1

If m = 0 then n = - l

l : m : n = l : 0 : -1

⇒ θ = π/3

QUESTION: 18

A man alternately tosses a coin and throws a dice beginning with the coin. The probability that he gets a head in the coin before he gets a 5 or 6 in the dice is

Solution:

Probability of getting head = 1/2 and probability of throwing 5 or 6 with a dice = 2/6 1/3 . He starts with a coin and alternately tosses the coin and throws the dice and he will if he get a head before he get 5 or 6.

QUESTION: 19

Three distinct numbers are selected from first 100 natural numbers. The probability that all the three numbers are divisible by 2 and 3 is

Solution:

The numbers should be divisible by 6. Thus, the number of favourable ways is ^{16}C_{3} (as there are 16 numbers in first 100 natural numbers, divisible by 6).

Required probability is

QUESTION: 20

A student appears for test I, II and III. The student is successful if he passes either in test I and II or test I and III. The probability of the student passing in test I, II, III are p, q and 1/2 respectively. If the probability that the student is successful is 1/2, then

Solution:

Let A, B and C be the events that the student is successful in test I, II and III respectively, then P(the student is successful)

P[A∩B∩C')∪(A∩B'∩C)∪(A∩B∩C)]

= P(A∩B∩C') + P(A∩B'∩C) + P(A∩B∩C)

P(A).P(B).P(C') + P(A)P(B')P(C) + P(A)P(B)P(C)

{∴ A, B, C are independent}

This equation has infinitely many values of p and q.

QUESTION: 21

It is given that events A and B are such that P(A) = 1/4, P(A/B) = 1/2 and P(B/A) = 2/3, then P (B) is

Solution:

P(A/B) = P(A⋂B)/P(B)

P(B/A) = P(B⋂A)/P(A)

2/3 = P(B⋂A)/(1/4)

P(A⋂B) = 2/3*1/4

= 1/6

Therefore, P(A/B) = P(A⋂B)/P(B)

1/2 = 1/6P(B)

P(B) = 1/3

QUESTION: 22

Solution:

number of type 3k → 10

3k + 1 → 10

3k + 2 → 10

Either all the no. are of the same type or one No. from each type

QUESTION: 23

The equation of plane passing through the point (0, 7, -7) and containing the line

Solution:

The equation of plane passing through (0, 7, -7) is a(x – 0) + b(y – 7) + c(z + 7) = 0

Plane contains line and passes through (-1, 3, -2)

∴ a(-1) + b(3 – 7) + c(-2 + 7) = 0

-3a + 2b + c = 0

∴ a : b : c = 1 : 1 : 1

x + y + z = 0

QUESTION: 24

Solution:

= i(- 2 - 3μ) + j(μ - 3) + k(5μ - 4)

is parallel to x - 4y + 3z = 1

1(- 2 - 3μ) + 4(μ - 3) + 3(5μ - 4) = 0

μ = 1/4

QUESTION: 26

Solution:

QUESTION: 27

Let A (1,1,1) , B (2, 3, 5) and C (-1, 0, 2) be three points, then equation of a plane parallel to the plane ABC which is at a distance 2 from origin is

Solution:

A (1,1,1), B (2,3,5), C(-1,0,2) direction ratios of AB are < 1,2,4 >

Therefore, direction ratios of normal to plane ABC are < 2, -3,1 >

As a result, equation of the required plane is 2x – 3y +z = k then

Hence, equation of the required plane is

QUESTION: 28

The distance between the line and the plane

Solution:

Therefore, the line and the plane are parallel. A point on the line is (2, -2, 3). Required distance = distance of (2, -2, 3) from the given plane x + 5y + z - 5 = 0

QUESTION: 29

If the distance between the plane x - 2y + z = d and the plane containing the line and then |d| is

Solution:

Equation of plane containing the given lines is

⇒ (x - 1) (-1) - (y - 2) (-2) + (z - 3) (-1) = 0

⇒ -x + 1 + 2y - 4 - z + 3

⇒ -x + 2y - z = 0

Given plane is

x - 2y + z = d .....(ii)

Eqs. (i) and (ii) are parallel

Now, distance between planes

⇒ |d| = 6

QUESTION: 30

A plane π passes through the point (1, 1, 1). If b, c, a are the direction ratios of a normal to the plane, where a, b, c (a < b < c) are the prime factors of 2001, then the equation of the plane π is

Solution:

2001 = 3 x 23 x 29 and (3+23+29)

= 55 ⇒ a = 3, b = 23, c = 29
