Q.22. Prove that the rectangle circumscribing a circle is a square. (2 Mark)
Ans. Let ABCD be a rectangle
∴ AB = DC and AD = BC ...(i)
We know that length of the tangents drawn from an external point to the circle are of equal lengths.
∴ AP = AS
BP = BQ
CR = CQ
DR = DS
Adding vertically, we have
AB + BP + CR + DR
= AS + BQ + CQ + DS
(AP + BP) + (CR + DR)
= (AS + DS) + (BQ + CQ)
AB + CD = AD + BC
AB + AB = AD + AD [using (i)]
2AB = 2AD
⇒ AB = AD
Since adjacent sides of a rectangle ABCD are equal.
Hence, ABCD is a square.

Or
If the point P (x, y) is equidistant from the points A(5,1) and B(1,5), prove that 3x = 2y. (2 Mark)
Ans. Given points are A(5,2) and 6(9,2) and let the required point be P(0, y). Then,
PA = PB ⇒ PA^{2} = PB^{2}
⇒ (0 + 5)^{2} + (y  2)^{2} = (0  9)^{2} + (y + 2)^{2}
⇒ 52 + (y  2)^{2} = ( 9)^{2} + (y + 2)^{2}
⇒ 25 + (y  2)^{2} = 81 + (y + 2)^{2}
⇒ (y + 2)^{2}  (y  2)^{2} = (25  81)
⇒ 8y =  56 ⇒ y =  7.
Hence, the required point is P(0,  7).
Or
Given the point P(x, y) is equidistant from the points A(5,1)and B(1,5).
Hence, PA = PB ⇒ PA^{2} = PB^{2}
⇒ (x  5)^{2} + (y  1)^{2} = (x + 1)^{2} + (y  5)^{2}
⇒ x^{2} + y^{2}  10x  2y + 26
= x^{2} + y^{2} + 2x  10y + 26
⇒ 12x  8y = 0 ⇒ 12x = 8y
⇒ 3x = 2y

(i) a even prime number.
(ii) a number divisible by 2.
Or
A card is drawn at random from a wellshuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that the card drawn is neither a red card nor a queen. (3 Mark)
Ans.
There are 6 possible outcomes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6) in a single throw of a die.
(i) We know that, even prime number is only 2.
So, number of favourable outcomes = 1
∴ P(getting a even prime number) = 1/6.
(ii) The numbers divisible by 2 are 2, 4 and 6.
So,number of favourable outcomes = 3
∴ P (getting a even number divisible by 2)
= 3/6 = 1/2
Number of red cards = 26
Number of queens = 4
But, out of these 4 queens, 2 are red.
∴ Number of queens which are not red = 2
Now, number of cards which are red or queen = 26+2 = 28
∴ P (getting either red card or queen)
= 28/52 = 7/13
Now, P (not getting either red card or queen)
= 1  P (getting either red card or queen)
Q.30. Find the point on yaxis which is equidistant from the points (5,  2) and ( 3, 2).

Ans. The given points are A(5,  2) and B( 3, 2).
Let the required point lying on yaxis be P(0, y).
Since point P is equidistant from A and B.
∴ PA = PB
⇒ PA^{2} = PB^{2}
⇒ (0  5)^{2} + {y  ( 2)}^{2} = {0  ( 3)}^{2} + (y  2)^{2}
⇒ ( 5)^{2} + (y + 2)^{2} = (3)^{2} + (y  2)^{2}
⇒ 25 + y^{2} + 4y + 4 = 9 + y^{2}  4y + 4
⇒ 8y =  16
⇒ y =  2
Hence, the required point is P(0,  2)
Or
The given points are A(2, 1) and 5(5,  8). P and Q are points of trisection such that P is nearer to A. Therefore, point P divides AS internally in the ratio 1 : 2.
Using section formula, the coordinates of point P are
It is given that point 5(3,  2) lies on the line 2x  y + k = 0
∴ 2 x 3  ( 2) + k = 0
⇒ 6 + 2 + k = 0
⇒ k =  8
Q.31. In the figure, PQ is a tangent to a circle with centre O. If ∠OAB = 30°, find ∠ABP and ∠AOB. (3 Mark)
Or
ΔABC is a right angled at C. If p is the length of the perpendicular from C to AB and a, b, c are the lengths of the sides opposite ∠A, ∠B and ∠C respectively, then prove that
Ans. Since, the tangent is perpendicular to the end point of radius.
Then,
∠OAB = ∠OBA (∵ OA = OB)
∠OBA = 30°
∴ ∠AOB = 180°  (30° + 30°)
∴ ∠ AOB = 120°
∠ABP = ∠OBP  ∠OBA
= 90°  30° = 60°
Or
In ΔACB and ΔCDB
∠ACB = ∠CDB = 90°
∠B = ∠B (common)
∴ ΔACB ∼ ΔCDB (by AA Si.milarity)
or, b/p = c/a
or, 1/p = c/ab
Squaring on both sides,
or,
∴

P(6,1), Q(8,2), R(9, 4) and S(P, 3).
We know that diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
Coordinates of midpoint of diagonal PR = Coordinates of midpoint of diagonal QS.
On equating xcoordinates from both sides, we get
⇒ P = 15  8 ⇒ P = 7
Hence the value of P is 7.
Or
Let the line segment joining P(3,  2) and Q(1, 4) be divided by the X axis in the ratio k : 1 at some point A.
PA: AQ = k : 1, then coordinates of
But A lies on the Xaxis, therefore its ycoordinate is 0.
⇒

Ans. Length of a rectangle = 8 cm
Breadth of rectangle = 6 cm
∴ The diagonal of a rectangle
Since the rectangle is inscribed in a circle, therefore the diagonal of a rectangle is the diameter of a circle.
∴ Diameter of a circle = 10 cm
Radius of a circle = 5 cm
From the figure,
Area of the shaded portion
= Area of the circle of radius 5 cm  Area of a rectangle

Hence, x = 3 and y  5.
ABC is the triangular shaded region formed by the obtained lines with the Yaxis.
OR
Let the first odd no. be 2x + 1
∴ Second consecutive odd number = 2x + 1 + 2
= 2x +3
Now, according to question,
(2x + 1)^{2} + (2x + 3)^{2} = 394
⇒ 4x^{2} + 4x + 1 + 4x^{2} 12x + 9 = 394
⇒ 8x^{2} + 16x  384 = 0
⇒ x^{2} + 2x  48 = 0
⇒ x^{2} + 8x  6x  48 = 0
⇒ x(x + 8) 6(x + 8) = 0
x =  8 or 6
∴ First number = 2 x 6 + 1
= 13
and second odd number = 15
Q.36. Prove that if a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, then the other two sides are divided in the same ratio. (4 Mark)

Ans. In the given figure, 0 is the centre of the circle.
Therefore, ∠OQL = ∠ORM = 90°
[∵ radius is perpendicular to the tangent at the point of contact]
Now, ∠OQS = ∠OQL  ∠SQL = 90°50° = 40°
But ∠OOS = ∠OSQ
[∵ angles opposite to equal sides are equal] ∠OSQ = 40°
Similarly, ∠OSR = ∠ORS = ∠ORM  ∠SRM
= 90°60° = 30°
Now, ∠QSR = ∠OSQ + ∠OSR = 40° + 30° = 70°
