Q.14. Fill the two blanks in the sequence 2,........, 26, ...... so that the sequence forms an AP.    (1 Mark)
Ans. 14, 38
 Notes | EduRev
Now, a + d = x
and a2 + d = 26, a3 + d = y
2 + d = x
x + d = 26, 26 + d = y
2 + d + d = 26, 26 + 12 = y
⇒ d = 12
Hence, 2 + 12 = 14 = x and 26 + 12 = 38 = y

Q.19. What is the nature of roots of the quadratic equation 5y2 - 4y + 3 = 0.    (1 Mark)
Ans. Given, quadratic equation is 5y2 - 4y + 3 = 0
On comparing with ay2 + by + c = 0,
we get a = 5, b = - 4 and c = 3
Now, D = b2 - 4ac = (-4)2 - 4(5)(3)
= 16 - 60
= - 44 < 0
Since, D < 0, so the given quadratic equation has no real roots.

Q.20. Find the lower limit of median class of the following data if median is 43 :    (1 Mark)

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
 Notes | EduRev
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.

Q.23. Find the point on F-axis which is equidistant from the points (-5,2) and (9, -2).
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 ⇒ PA2 = PB2
⇒ (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 ⇒ PA2 = PB2 
⇒ (x - 5)2 + (y - 1)2 = (x + 1)2 + (y - 5)2 
⇒ x2 + y2 - 10x - 2y + 26
= x2 + y2 + 2x - 10y + 26
⇒ 12x - 8y = 0 ⇒ 12x = 8y
⇒ 3x = 2y

Q.24. A game consists of tossing a coin 3 times and noting the outcome each time. If getting the same result in all the tosses is a success, find the probability of losing the game.
Or

Or
A box contains 80 discs which are numbered from 1 to 80.
Total number of possible outcomes in the sample space = n(S) = 80
Let ‘E’ denote the event that disc drawn from the box is a perfect square number.
E = {1,4, 9, 16, 25,36,49, 64}
∴ n(E) = 8
Probability of getting perfect square number  Notes | EduRev

Q.25. If θ be an acute angle and 5 cosec θ = 7, then evaluate sin θ + cos2 θ - 1.    (2 Mark)
Ans. Given, 5 cosec θ = 7
or,    cosec θ = 7/5
or,  Notes | EduRev
sin θ + cos2 θ - 1 = sin θ - (1 - cos2 θ)
= sin θ - sin2 θ
(∵ sin2 θ + cos2 θ = 1)

Q.29. A die is thrown once. Find the probability of getting
(i) a even prime number.
(ii) a number divisible by 2.
Or
A card is drawn at random from a well-shuffled 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)
 Notes | EduRev
 = 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 y-axis which is equidistant from the points (5, - 2) and (- 3, 2).
Or
The line segment joining the points A (2 , 1) and B(5, - 8) is trisected at the points P and Q such that P is nearer to A. If P also lies on the line given by 2x - y + k = 0, find the value of k.    (3 Mark)
Ans. The given points are A(5, - 2) and B(- 3, 2).
Let the required point lying on y-axis be P(0, y).
Since point P is equidistant from A and B.
∴  PA = PB
⇒ PA2 = PB2
⇒ (0 - 5)2 + {y - (- 2)}2 = {0 - (- 3)}2 + (y - 2)2 
⇒ (- 5)2 + (y + 2)2 = (3)2 + (y - 2)2 
⇒ 25 + y2 + 4y + 4 = 9 + y2 - 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.
 Notes | EduRev
Using section formula, the coordinates of point P are

 Notes | EduRev
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  Notes | EduRev
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
 Notes | EduRev
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

Or In what ratio does the X-axis divide the line segment joining the points P (-3 , - 2) and Q(1, 4) ? Also find the coordinates of the point of division.    (3 Mark)
Ans. 
Given vertices of the parallelogram are
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 mid-point of diagonal PR = Coordinates of mid-point of diagonal QS.
 Notes | EduRev
On equating x-coordinates from both sides, we get
 Notes | EduRev
⇒ 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
 Notes | EduRev
But A lies on the X-axis, therefore its y-coordinate is 0.
⇒   Notes | EduRev
⇒ 4k - 2 = 0

Q.34. Find the area of the shaded region in figure, if ABCD is a rectangle with sides 8 cm and 6 cm and O is the centre of circle.  [Take π = 3.14]    (3 Mark)
 Notes | EduRev
Ans. Length of a rectangle = 8 cm
Breadth of rectangle = 6 cm
∴ The diagonal of a rectangle  Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
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

 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
Plotting the above points and drawing the lines joining them, we get the graph of above equations.
Two obtained lines intersect at point A(3,5).
Hence, x = 3 and y - 5.
ABC is the triangular shaded region formed by the obtained lines with the Y-axis.
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
⇒ 4x2 + 4x + 1 + 4x2 12x + 9 = 394
⇒  8x2 + 16x - 384 = 0
⇒ x2 + 2x - 48 = 0
⇒ x2 + 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

 Notes | EduRev
Since ΔBDE and ΔCDE are triangles on the same base DE and between the same, parallels DE and BC.
∴ Area of ΔBDE = Area of ΔCDE ... (v)
From (iii), (iv) and (v), we have
AD/DB = AE/EC

Q.37. In the given figure, PQL and PRM are tangents to the circle with centre O at the points Q and R, respectively. If S is a point on the circle such that ∠SQL = 50° and ∠SRM = 60°, then find the value of QSR.    (4 Mark)
 Notes | EduRev
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°

Area of semi-circle =1386/2 = 693 cm2
= 1386/2 = 693 cm2
 Notes | EduRev
Area of shaded region = 693 - 441
= 252 sq cm
Or
 Notes | EduRev
Since ∠ C = 90º
AC = BC = x(say)
AB2 = AC2 + BC2 
AB2 = x2 + x2
2x2 = (2√2)2
