= 1 – P(A’) P(B’) = 1 – [(1 – $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ – (1 – $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$]
= 1 – ($$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ × $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$) = 1 – $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ = $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$

(ii) Exactly one of them solves problem
= P(A ∩ B) + P(A ∩ B’)
= P(A’) + P(B) + P(A) P(B’)
$$=\left(1-\frac{1}{2}\right)\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)+\frac{1}{2}\left(1-\frac{1}{3}\right)$$
$$=\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)+\frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)=\frac{1}{2}$$

Part-C

Answer any TEN questions: (10 × 3 = 30)

Question 25.
Check whether the relation R in 1R of real numbers defined by R = {(a, b): a < b3} is reflexive, symmetric or transitive.
(i) For (a, a) ∈R, a < a3 which is false.
As for a = -2, a3 = -8
∴ a $$\nleq$$ a3 as – 2 $$\nleq$$ – 8
∴ R is not reflexive.

(ii) For (a, b), a < b3 and (b, a), b < a3 which is false
As for a = 1 and b = 2
a < b3 as 1 < 8
Now, b $$\nleq$$ a3 as 2 $$\nleq$$ 1
∴ R is not symmetric.

(iii) For (a, b), (b, c) and (a, c)
a < b3 and b < c3
Now a = 25, b = 3, c = 2
a < b3 and 25 < 27
b < c3 and 3 < 8
but a $$\nleq$$ c3 as 25 $$\nleq$$ 8
.’. R is not transitive.
Hence R is neither reflexive, nor symmetric and nor transitive.

Question 26.
Prove that
cos-1 ($$\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$$) + cos-1 ($$\frac { 12 }{ 13 }$$) = cos-1 ($$\frac { 33 }{ 65 }$$)
Let
cos-1 ($$\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$$) ⇒ cos A = $$\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$$ ⇒ Sin A = $$\sqrt{1-\frac{16}{25}}=\frac{3}{5}$$
cos-1 ($$\frac { 12 }{ 13 }$$) = cos B = $$\frac { 12 }{ 13 }$$ ⇒ sin B = $$\sqrt{1-\frac{144}{169}}=\frac{5}{13}$$
cos(A + B) = cosA.cosB – sinA.sinB $$=\frac{4}{5} \cdot \frac{12}{13}-\frac{3}{5} \cdot \frac{5}{13}=\frac{48}{65}-\frac{15}{65}=\frac{33}{65}$$
cos(A + B) = $$\frac { 33 }{ 65 }$$ ⇒ A + B = cos-1 ($$\frac { 33 }{ 65 }$$)
cos-1 ($$\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$$) + cos-1 ($$\frac { 12 }{ 13 }$$) = cos-1 ($$\frac { 33 }{ 65 }$$)

Question 27.
By using elementary transformations, find the inverse of the matrix

Question 28.
If x = a(θ + sin θ), y = a(1 – cosθ) then show that $$\frac{d y}{d x}=\tan \left(\frac{\theta}{2}\right)$$
We have
$$\frac{d x}{d \theta}$$ = a(1 + cos θ), $$\frac{d y}{d \theta}$$ = a(sin θ)

Question 29.
Verify Rolle’s theorem for the function f(x) = x2 + 2x – 8, x ∈ [-4, 2].
f(x) is a polynomial in x. Hence it is continuous over [-4, 2] and differentiable over (-4,2).
f(-4) = (-4)2 + 2 (-4) – 8 = 16 – 8 – 8 = 0
f(2) = 4 + 4 – 8 = 0
∴ f(-4) = f(2)
∴ All the conditions of the Rolle’s theorem are satisfied.
∴ there exists a c ∈[-4,2] such that
f'(c) = 0 f'(x) = 2x + 2
f(c) = 2c + 2
f(c) = 0
⇒ 2c + 2 = 0
⇒ 2c = -2
⇒ c = -1 ∈[-4, 2]
∴ Rolle’s theorem is verified.

Question 30.
Find the intervals in which the function f given by f(x) = 2X3 – 3x2 – 36x + 7 is strictly increasing.
f(x) = 2x3 – 3x2 – 36x + 7
f ‘(x) = 6x2 – 6x – 36
f ‘(x) = 0 ⇒ 6x2 – 6x – 36 = 0

⇒ 6(x2 – x – 6) = 0
⇒ 6(x – 3)(x + 2) = 0
6 ≠ 0, x = 3, x = -2

Question 31.
Find $$\int x \log x d x$$

Question 32.
Evaluate $$\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}} \frac{\sin x}{1+\cos ^{2} x} d x$$

y’ = 3 a e3x – 2 be-2x …. (2)
From (1) and (2)
y = a e3x + b e-2x × 3
y’ = 3a e3x – 2b e-2x × 1

Diff
⇒ 3y’ – y” = 5be-2x
3y’ – y” = -10be-2x ….(4)
From (3) & (4)
3y’ – y” = (-2) (5be-2x)
3y’ – y” = -2[3y – y’]
3y’ – y” = -6y + 2y’
y” – y’ – 6y = 0.

Question 35.

Let

= -2(21 + 0) + 4(7 + 8) – 6(0 + 3)
= -42 + 60 – 18 = -60 + 60 = 0
∴ A, B, C, D are coplanar.

Question 37.
Find the vector equation of the plane passing through the points R(2, 5,-3), S(-2, -3, 5) and T(5, 3, -3).

Theorem: Derive intercept form of the equation of a plane
Let the equation of a plane be
Ax + By + Cz + 0 = 0 (1)

Let the plane cuts X – axis at p(a, 0, 0), Y-axis at Q(0, b, 0), Z-axis at R(0, 0, c) substituting P(a, 0, 0) in equation (1)
Aa + D = 0 ⇒ Aa = -D ⇒ A = $$\frac{-D}{a}$$
substituting Q(0, b, 0) in equation (1)
Bb + D = 0 ⇒ Bb = D ⇒ B = $$\frac{-D}{b}$$
R(0, 0, c) in equation (1)
Cc + D = 0 ⇒ Cc = -D ⇒ C = $$\frac{-D}{c}$$
substituting A, B, C in (1)
$$\left(\frac{-D}{a}\right) x+\left(\frac{-D}{b}\right) y+\left(\frac{-D}{c}\right) z=-D$$
Dividing through out by -D
$$\Rightarrow \frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}+\frac{z}{c}=1$$
is the required equation of the plane in intercept form

Question 39.
Let f: N → Y be a function defined as
f(x) = 4x + 3, where
y = {y ∈ N: y = 4x + 3 for some x ∈ N}. Show that f is invertible. Find the inverse of f.
f:N → Y
f(x) = 4x + 3
To prove that / is one – one
Let f(x1) = f(x2)
4x1 + 3 = 4x2 + 3
4x1 = 4x2
∴ x1 = x2.
∴ f is one – one
To prove that f is onto
Let y ∈ Y there exits x ∈ N such that
f(x) = y
4x + 3 = y
4x = y – 3, x = $$\frac{y-3}{4}$$
∴ f is one-one and onto
⇒ f is bijective. Hence f is invertible
∴ f-1(y) = $$\frac{y-3}{4}$$

Question 40.
If A = $$\left[ \begin{matrix} 1 & 2 & 3 \\ 3 & -2 & 1 \\ 4 & 2 & 1 \end{matrix} \right]$$ then show that A2 – 23A – 40I = 0
We have

Question 41.
Solve the following system of linear equations by matrix method:
3x – 2y + 3z = 8
2x + y – z = 1
4x – 3y + 2z = 4
The system of equations can be written in the form A X = B where

|A| = 3(2 – 3) + 2(4 + 4) + 3(-6 -4) = -17
Hence, A is non singular matrix and so its inverse exists. Now
A11 = -1 A12 = -8 A13 = -10
A21 = -5 A22 = -6 A23 = +1
A31 = -1 A32 = +9 A33 = +7

Question 42.
If y = (sin-1 x). show that
$$\left(1-x^{2}\right) \frac{d^{2} y}{d x^{2}}-x\left(\frac{d y}{d x}\right)=0$$
Given that y = sin-1 x, we have
y1 = $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^{2}}}$$ i.e., (1 – x2)y12 = 1
so (1 – x2). 2y1y2 + y12(0 – 2x) = 0
Hence (1 – x2) y2 – xy1 = 0

Question 43.
The length x of a rectangle is decreasing at the rate of 3 cm / min and the width y is increasing at the rate of 2 cm / min. When x = 10 cm and y = 6 cm, find the rates of change of
(i) the perimeter and
(ii) the area of the rectangle.
Since the length x is decreasing and the width y is increasing with respect to time, we have
$$\frac{d x}{d t}$$ = – 3 cm /min and $$\frac{d y}{d t}$$ = 2 cm/mm
(a) The perimeter P of a rectangel is given by P = 2 (x + y)
Therefore $$\frac{d P}{d t}$$ = $$2\left(\frac{d x}{d t}+\frac{d y}{d t}\right)$$ = 2 (-3 + 2)
= – 2 cm / min

(b) The area A of the rectangle is given A = x.y
Therefore $$\frac{d A}{d t}$$ = $$\frac{d x}{d t}$$ . y + x. $$\frac{d y}{d t}$$
= -3(6)+ 10(2) (as x= 10 cm and y = 6 cm)
= 2 cm2/min.

Question 45.
Using the method of integration, find the smaller area enclosed by the circle x2 + y2 = 4 and the line x + y = 2.
Given circle x2 + y2 = 4 and the line is x + y = 2
x2 + (2 – x)2 = 4
[∴ y = 2 – x]

2x2 – 4x = 0 ⇒ 2x(x – 2) = 0 ⇒ x = 0, 2
Now, x2 + y2 = 4 and x + y = 2
⇒ y2 = 4 – x2 y = 2 – x,
⇒ y = $$y=\sqrt{2^{2}-x^{2}}$$
Required Area

Question 46.
Find the general solution of the differential equation $$\frac{d y}{d x}$$+ (secx)y = tanx, ( 0 ≤ x ≤ $$\frac{\pi}{2}$$).
Given circle x2 + y2 = 4 and the line is x + y = 2
x2 + (2 – x)2 = 4 [∴ y = 2 – x]

2x2 – 4x = 0 ⇒ 2x(x – 2) = 0 ⇒ x = 0, 2
Now, x2 + y2 = 4 and x + y = 2
⇒ y2 = 4 – x y = 2 – x,
⇒ y = $$\sqrt{2^{2}-x^{2}}$$
Required Area

Subject to the constraints :
x + 2y ≤ 120
x + y ≥ 60
x – 2y ≥ 0
x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0.
Draw the graph of the line

Put (0, 0) in the inequality x + 2y ≤ 120
0 + 2(0) ≤ 120
0 ≤ 120 (True)
∴ The half plane lies towards the origin
P (0, 0) in the inequality x + y ≥ 0
0 + 0 ≥ 0 (False)
∴ The half plane lies away from the origin
Put (0, 1) in the inequality x – 2y ≥ 0
0 – 2(1) ≥ 0
-2 ≥ 0 (False)
∴ The half plane does not contain (0, 1)
Check the point (1, 0) in the inequality
x – 2y ≥ 0
1 – 2 (0) ≥ 0
⇒ 1 ≥ 0 (True)
∴ The half plane contains (1,0)
So the half plane is towards x – axis

Since given f(x) is continous at x = 5 => lim f(x) = lim f(x)=/(5)

⇒ K(5) + 1 = 3(5) – 5
⇒ 5K+ 1 = 10 ⇒ 5K = 9
⇒ K = $$\frac { 9 }{ 5 }$$
