(a) (4,0,0)
(b) (0,-9,0)
(c) (0,0,7)
(d) (-4,9,-7)
Ans:
Choice (a) is correct.
We know that on x-axis, y = 0 and z = 0. Therefore, the coordinates of foot of perpendicular A are (4,0,0).

Q.3. Ordinate of all points on the X-axis is
(a) 0
(b) 1
(c) -1
(d) any number
Ans: 
(a) Ordinate of all points on the X-axis is zero. Because ordinate (or y-coordinate) of a point is its perpendicular distance from the X-axis measured along the X-axis. If ordinate of all points on the X-axis, then this perpendicular distance will be zero, so ordinate will be zero.

Q.12. Two supplementary angles are in ratio 2 : 7. Find the measures of angles.
OR
In fig. if AB || CD, ∠APQ = 50° and ∠PRD = 127°, find x and y.
 Notes | EduRev
Ans:
2x + 7x= 180° ⇒ x = 20°
So the angles are
2x = 2 x 20° = 40°
and 7x - 7 x 20° '= 140°
So two angles are 40° and 140°
Or
x = ∠APQ - 50° (Alternate interior angles)
50° + y = 127° (Alternate interior angles)

Q.18. Let f = {(1,1), (2, 3), (0, -1), (-1, -3)} be a linear function from Z into Z. Find f(x).
Ans: Let f(x) = ax + b be a linear function.
Also, (0, -1), (1, 1) ∈ R, ∴ f(o) = 0 + b = b, f(1) = a + b
Thus, - 1 =f(0) = b and 1 = f(1) = a + b ⇒ a = 1 - b = 1 -(-1) = 2
Hence, f(x) = 2 x - 1.

Q.19. The angles of quadrilateral are in the ratio 3:5:9:13 . Find all the angles of the quadrilateral.
Ans: Given, the ratio of the angles of quadrilateral are 3:5:9:13.
Let the angles of the quadrilateral are 3x, 5x, 9x and 13x,
We know that, sum of angles of a quadrilateral = 360°
∴ 3x + 5x + 9x +13x = 360°
⇒ 30x = 360° ⇒ x = 12°
∴ Angles of the quadrilateral are
3x = 3 x 12 = 36°,
5x = 5 x 12 = 60°,
9x = 9 x 12 =108°
and 13x = 13 x 12 =156°

Question 27 to 34, carry 3 marks each
Q.27.  Factorise: 8x3 + 20x2 + 6x - 9
Or
If (x + 1) and (x + 2) are the factors of x3 + 3x2 - 3ax + β, then find α and β.
Ans:  Let p(x) = 8x3 + 20x2 + 6x - 9
By hit and trial method, we find that
 Notes | EduRev
= -27 + 45 - 9 - 9 = 0
∴ (2x + 3) is a factor of p(x).
Now, by long division method, we obtain
 Notes | EduRev
∴ p(x) = (2x + 3) (4x2 + 4x -3)
= (2x + 3) (4x2 4- 6x - 2x - 3)
= (2x + 3) {2x (2x + 3) - 1(2x + 3)}
= (2x + 3) (2x + 3) (2x - 1)
Or
Let p(x) = x3 + 3x2 - 3αx + β
Since (x + 1) and (x + 2) are factors of p(x)
∴ Put x = -1 and -2, we obtain
p(-1) = (-1)3 + 3(-1)2 - 3α(-1) + β = 0
⇒ -1 + 3 + 3α + β = 0
⇒ 3α + β = -2 ...(i)
p(-2) = (-2)3 + 3(-2)2 - 3α(-2) + β = 0
⇒ -8 + 12 + 6a + β = 0
⇒ 6α + β = - 4 ...(ii)
Subtracting (i) from (ii). we have
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
Hence, values of α and β are α = -1/2 and β =0.

Q.28. Using principle of mathematical induction, prove that
x3n - y3n is divisible by (x - y) for all n ∈ N.

Ans: Let P(n) : x3n - y3n is divisible by (x - y) for all n ∈ N ...(1)
When n = 1, P(1) - x3x1 - y3x1] = x3 - y3 = (x - y)(x2 + xy + y2) which is divisible by (x - y).
∴ P(1) is true.
Let us assume that P(k) is true for any natural number k.
i.e., P(k) : x3k - y3k is divisible by (x - y).
i.e., x3k - y3k = m(x - y), where m is some integer. ...(2)
Now, we have to prove that P(k + 1) is also true.
i.e., P(k + 1) : x3(k + 1) - y3(k + 1) is divisible by (x - y).
Now, x3(k + 1) -y3(k + 1) =  Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev
 Notes | EduRev[using (2)]
 Notes | EduRev
which is divisible by (x - y).
Thus, P(k + 1) is true whenever P(k) is true.
Hence, by the principle of mathematical induction, P(n) : x3n - y3n is divisible by (x - y) for all n ∈ N.

Q.29. In the given figure, D and E are the points on the base BC of ΔABC such that BD = CE, AD = AE and ∠ADE = ∠AED.
 Notes | EduRev
Prove that ΔABE ≌ ΔACD.
Ans:
Given In ΔABC, D and E are the points on the base BC and BD = CE, AD = AE and ∠ADE = ∠AED.
To prove ΔABE ≌ ΔACD
Proof In ΔABE and ΔACE , we have
AD = AE    [given]
BD = CE    [given] 
and ∠ADB = ∠AEC
 Notes | EduRev
∴ ΔABD = ΔACE [by SAS congruence rule]
Hence, AB = AC    [by CPCT]
Now, in ΔABE and ΔACD, we have
ΔACD, we have
AB = AC    [proved above]
BE = CD
[∵ BD = CE ⇒ BD + DE = CE + ED ⇒ BE = CD]
and ∠ABE = ∠ACD
[∵ angles opposite to equal sides are equal]
∴ ΔABE ≌ ΔACD    [by SAS congruence rule]
Hence proved

Q.30. ABCD is a square. If ∠PQR = 90° and PB - QC = DR, prove that ∠QPR = 45°.
 Notes | EduRev

Q.39. Shanti Sweets Stall was placing an order for making cardboard boxes for packing their sweets. Two sizes of boxes were required. The bigger of dimensions 25 cm x 20 cm x 5 cm and the smaller of dimensions 15 cm x 12 cm x 5 cm. For all the overlaps, 5 % of the total surface area is required extra. If the cost of the cardboard , is INR 4 for 1000 cm2, find the cost of cardboard required for supplying 250 boxes of each kind.
Ans.
Total surface area of smaller box
= 2(lb + bh + hl)
= 2 (15 x 12 + 12 x 5 + 5 x 15)
= 2 (180 + 60 + 75) = 630 cm2
Extra area of cardboard required for overlapping = 5/100  x 630 = 31.50 cm2
∴ Total area of cardboard required for each smaller box = 630 + 31.50 — 661.50 cm2
Total surface area of bigger box
= 2 ( lb + bh + hl)
= 2 (25 x 20 + 20 x 5 + 5 x 25)
= 2 (500 + 100 + 125) = 2(725) = 1450 cm2
Extra area of cardboard required for overlapping = 5/100 x 1450 = 72.50 cm2
∴ Total area of cardboard required for each bigger box
= 1450 cm2 + 72.50 cm= 1522.50 cm2 
Total area of cardboard required for 250 such boxes each smaller and bigger
= 250 x (661.50 + 1522.50) = 250 x 2184 = 546000 cm2

Q.40. How many words can be formed out of the letters of the word ‘MATHEMATICS ’. In how many words of the letters of the word so that the consonants occur together.
Ans.
Given word is ‘MATHEMATICS’ and there are 11 letters in the given word, out of which two M ’s, two A’s and two T’s are alike and remaining 5 letters are distinct.
∴ Number of possible arrangements of all letters taken all at a time = 11!/2!2!2!
∴ Number of words formed of the letters of the word =  Notes | EduRev
There are 7 consonants in the given word (i.e., M, M, T, T, H, C, S).
When the consonants occur together, let us treat them as one letter (MMTTHCS).
Now there are 5 letters (i.e., MMTTHCS, A, A, E, I), out of which two A’s are alike and rest are distinct.
∴ Number of possible arrangements of these 5 letters taken all at a time = 5!/2!
Corresponding to each such arrangement, the 7 consonants can be arranged amongst themselves in 7!/2!2! ways. [∵ M and T occur two times]
∴ Number of arrangements in which consonants are together =  Notes | EduRev
∴ Number of words in which consonants occur together =  Notes | EduRev
