= 1/2 [6 x 5] = 15 sq. units

CP = CQ, AR = AQ and BR = BP

Now perimeter of Î”ABC = AB + BC + CA

= (AR + BR) + (BP + CP) + (AQ + CQ)

= (AR + AQ) + (BR + BP) + (CP + CQ)

= (AQ + AQ) + (BR + BR) + (CP + CP)

= 2AQ + 2BR + 2 CP

= 2(4) + 2(6) + 2(5) cm

Explanation : According to Euclid's division lemma, a = bq + r, where o

lf b = 2, then a â€” 2q or a â€” 2q + 1

Since a = 2q + 1 is not divisible by 2, then 2q + 1 is an odd integer.

**Section B**

**Q.21. Points A(3,1), B(5,1), C(a, b) and D(4, 3) are vertices of a parallelogram ABCD. Find the values of a and b. (2 Mark)**

Find the coordinates Of points P and Q.****Solution:** The given points are A(- 2, 0) and B(0, 8). P arid Q are the points of trisection such that P is nearer to A. Then AP - PQ = QB.

Therefore, point P divides AB internally in the ratio 1 : 2,

Using section formula, the coordinates of point P are

Also, point Q divides AB internally in the ratio 2:1,

Using section formula, the coordinates of point Q are

Now, in APQR, we have

âˆ 3 + âˆ 4 + âˆ 5 + âˆ 6 = 180Â°

âˆ 4 + âˆ 4 + âˆ 5 + âˆ 5 = 180

[âˆµ âˆ 3 = âˆ 4 and âˆ 6 = âˆ 5]

â‡’ 2(âˆ 4 + âˆ 5) = 180

Here, D < 0.

âˆ´ The given equation has no real roots.

Thus, the given equation has

â‡’ 4600 + 50p = 5160 + 30p

â‡’ 50p - 30p = 5160 - 4600 â‡’ 20p = 560

Now, putting y = 5 in Eq. (i), we get

â‡’ 3x = 18 â‡’ x = 6.....(1/2)

Again, putting y = in Eq. (i), we get

According to the statement of the question, we obtain

and

Put we obtain

30a + 44b = 10 .....(i)

40a + 55b = 13 .....(ii)

By using cross-multiplication, we have

â‡’

Again, putting the values of a and b, we obtain

x - y= 5 and x + y =11

Adding the two equations, we have

2x = 16 â‡’ x = 8

And x + y =11

â‡’ y = 11 - 8 = 3

Hence, the speed of the boat in still water is 8 km/h.

Or

â‡’ (x - 5) (2x - 1) = 0

â‡’ Either x - 5 = 0 or 2x - 1 = 0

â‡’ x = 5 or x = 1/2 (Rejecting)

Hence, present age of Nisha is 5 years and her motherâ€™s age 5

AP + PB + DR + CR = AS + BQ + DS + CQ

**Q.35. A pole has to be erected at a point on the boundary of a circular park of diameter 13 m in such a way that the difference of its distances from two diametrically opposite fixed gates A and B on the boundary is 7 m. Is it possible to do so ? If yes, at what distances from the two gates should the pole be erected ? (4 Mark)**

Let A and B be positions of fixed gates which are diametrically opposite in a circular park of diameter 13 m. Let P be the position of the pole such that AP = x m and BP = y m; x > y.

According to the given condition, we have

x - y = 7

â‡’ x = y + 7 ...(1)

Since angle in a semi-circle is 90Â°

â‡’ âˆ APB = 90Â°

In right triangle ABP, we have

AP

â‡’ x

â‡’ (y + 7)

â‡’ y = 5 [ âˆµ y cannot be negative]

âˆ´ x =y + 7 = 5 + 7 = 12

Hence, distances of the pole from the gates are

Solution:

and 3 x - y = 3 ..(ii)

Table for 5x - y = 5 or y = 5x - 5 is

Plot the points 4(1, 0) and B( 0, - 5) on a graph paper and join these points to form a line AB. (Table for 3x- y = 3 or v = 3x - 3 is

Plot the points A (1,0) and C (0, -3) on the same graph paper and join these points to form a line AC.

Hence, required numbers are 18, 12 and 18 ,- 1 2 .

Or

Let the speed of onward journey be x km/h

âˆ´ Speed of return journey â€” (x + 10) km/h

Total distance = 150 km

cording to the statement of the equation, we obtain

Rejecting x = - 30, because speed cannot be negative, we have x = 20

Hence, speed of onward journey is 20 km/h and speed of return journey is 20 + 10

i.e., 30 km/h.

âˆ´ . By AA-similaritv criterion, we have

So, [In similar triangles, corresponding sides are proportional]

â‡’ AD.AC =AB

In Î”BDC and Î”ABC

âˆ CDB = âˆ ABC [Each = 90Â°]

and âˆ C = âˆ C

âˆ´ ABDC ~ AABC [By AA-similarity]

So, [In similar triangles, corresponding sides are proportional]

â‡’ CD.AC = BC
