II. Answer the following questions : ( 1 × 8 = 8 )

Question 9.
If α and β are the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial 2 – 3x – x2 then what is the value of α + β + αβ ?
α + β = -b/a , αβ = c/a
= $$\frac{-(-3)}{-1}$$ αβ = $$\frac{2}{-1}$$ = – 2
= – 3
α + β + αβ = -3 -2 = -5

Question 10.
What are the roots of the quadratic equation x2 + (√3 + 1)x + √3 = 0?
2 + (√3 + 1)x + √3 = 0 = 0
x2 + x + √3x + √3 = 0
x(x + 1)+ √3 (x + 1) = 0
(x + 1)(x + √3) = 0
x + 1 = 0, x + √3 = 0
x = -1, x = -√3

Question 11.
If the nth terms of the two AP 9, 7, 5, ….. and 24, 21, 18, ……… are same. Find n.
9, 7, 5, …….
a = 9, d = 7-9 = -2 T = a + (n – 1)d
Tn = 9 + (n – 1) (-2)
Tn = 9 + (-2n + 2) ‘
Tn = 9 – 2n + 2
Tn = 11 – 2n
24,21,18,
a = 24, d = 21 – 24 = -3
Tn = a + (n – 1) d T=24 + (n – 1)(-3)
Tn = 24 – 3n + 3
Tn = 27 – 3n
Given : nth term of both A. P. is same.
∴ 11 – 2n = 27 – 3n
-2n +3n = 27 -11
n = 16

Question 12.
State A – A criterian theorem.
“If two triangles are equiangular, then the corresponding sides are proportional.”

Question 13.
Find the H.C.F of 455 and 42 with the help of Euclid’s division algorithm.
Step (1): a = 455 b = 42
a = bq + r
455 = 42 × 1 + 35

Step (2): a = 42, b = 35
a = bq + r
42 = 35 × 1 + 7

Step (3): a = 35, b = 7
a = bq + r
35 = 7 × 5 + 0
∴ H.C.F. (455, 42) = 7

Question 14.
Find θ if sin (θ + 56) = cosθ, where θ and ( θ + 56) are less than 90°.
sin (θ + 56) = cos θ
sin (θ + 56) = sin (90 – θ)
θ + 56 = 90 – θ
θ + θ = 90 – 56
2θ = 34
θ = 34/2
θ = 17

Question 15.
If x = a sin θ and y = b tan θ, then find the value of $$\frac{a^{2}}{x^{2}}-\frac{b^{2}}{y^{2}}$$
Consider   Question 16.
Calculate the height of a right circular cone where C.S.A. and base radius are 12320 cm2 and 56 cms. respectively. C.S.A of a cone = π rl
12320 = $$\frac{22}{7}$$ x 56 x 1
1 = $$\frac{12320 \times 7}{22 \times 56}$$
1 = 70 cm
But 12 = r2 + h2
702 = 562 + h2
h22 = 702 – 562
h2 = (70 + 56) (70 – 56)
h2 =(126) (14) III. Answer the following ( 2 × 8 = 16 )

Question 17.
Show that any positive odd integer is of the form 6q + 1 or 6q + 3 or 6q + 5 where q is an integer.
Let nbe any positive, integer using division algorithm,
a = bq + r
Taking a = n, b = 6
n = 6q + r
If any number is divided by 6, then the possible remainders are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
∴If n is odd, then r = 1, 3, 5
⇒ 6q + 1, 6q + 3, 6q + 5 are the positive odd integers.

Question 18.
Solve : 2x + 3y = 9
3x + 4y = 5 Substitute y = 17 in 2x + 3y = 9
2x + 3(17) = 9
2x + 51 =9
2x = 9 – 51
x = $$\frac{-42}{2}$$
= -21

Question 19.
Solve : (x – 2)2 + 1 = 2x – 3
x2 + 4 – 4x + 1 = 2x – 3
x2 – 4x + 5 – 2x + 3 = 0
x2 – 6x + 8 = 0 x2 – 4x – 2x + 8 = 0
x(x – 4) -2(x – 4) = 0
(x – 4) (x – 2) = 0
x – 4 = 0, x -2 = 0
x = 4 or x = 2

Question 20.
Show that the points (-2, 1) (2, -2) and (5, 2) are the vertices of a right angled triangle.   ∴ ∆ ABC is a right angled triangle at B. Question 21.
The equilateral triangles are drawn on the sides of a right triangle. Show that the area of the triangle on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the triangles on the other two sides.  ∴ Area of ∆ XAB + Area of ∆ YBC = Area of ∆ ZAC .

If sinθ + cos θ = √2 sin (90 -θ) determine cot θ
sin θ + cos θ = √2 sin (90 – θ)
sin θ + cos θ = √2 cos θ
sin θ = ypi cos θ – cos θ
sin θ = cos θ (√2 -1)
sinθ /cosθ = √2 -1  IV. Answer the following : ( 3 × 9 = 27 )

Question 25.
Asha is 5 times as old as her daughter Usha, 5 years later Asha will be 3 times as old as her daughter Usha. Find the present ages of Asha and Usha.
Let the age of Asha be x years
Let the age of Usha be y years
According to question x=5y
x – 5y = 0 …….(1)
Five years later,
(x + 5) = 3(y + 5)
x + 5 = 3y + 15
x – 3y = 15 – 5
x – 3y = 15 – 5
x – 3y = 10 (2)
Substitute x = 5y in equation (2)
5y – 3y = 10
2y = 10
y = 10/2
y = 5
∴ x = 5y
= 5 × 5
x = 25
∴ The present age of Asha is 25 years.
The present age of Usha is 5 years.

OR

The sum of 2 digits of a 2 digit number is 12 the number obtained by interchanging the digits exceeds by the given number by 18. Find the number.
Let the two digits be x and y
The 2 digit number will be 10x + y
The sum of digits = x + y – 12 ……..(i)
The number obtained by interchanging the digits =10y + x
= 10x + y + 18
10y + x – 10x – y = 18
9y – 9x = 18
Divide by 9
y – x = 2
y = x + 2 ….(ii)
Consider equation (1)
x + y = 12
Substitute y = x + 2
x + x + 2 = 12 .
2x =12 – 2
2x= 10
x= 5
y = x + 2
y = 5 +2
y = 7
∴ The number is : 10x +y
= 10(5)+7 = 50+ 7
= 57

Question 26.

(y + √3 )(y – √3 ) = o
y(y – √3 ) + √3 (y – √3 ) = 0
y2 – √3y + √3 y – 3 = o
y2 – 3 = 0 y2 + y – 6 = 0
y2 + 3y – 2y – 6 = 0
y(y + 3)-2(y + 3) = 0
(y + 3) = 0 & (y – 2) = 0
y=-3 & y = 2
The four zeros of polynomial are √3 , -√3 , -3 & 2

Question 27.

-a2b – ab2 = (a + b) (ax + bx + x2)
-a2b – ab2 = a2x + abx + ax2 + abx + b2x + x2b
-a2b – ab2= a2x + 2abx + ax2 + b2x + x2b
-ab(a+b) = ax(a+x) + xb(b+x)+2abx
=x[a(a+x)+b(b+x)+2ab]
=x[a2 + ax+b2 +bx + 2ab]
= x[(a+b)2 + x(a+b)]
-ab(a + b) = x(a+b)[a+b+x]
-ab = x(a + b + x)
-ab = ax + bx + x2
x2 + x (a + b) + ab = 0
x2 + ax + bx + ab = 0
x(x+a) + b(x + a) = 0
(x + a) (x +b) = 0
=>x + a = 0, x + b = 0
=> x = -a, x = -b

The diagonal of a rectangular field is 60m more than the shorter side. If the larger side is 30m more than the shorter side, find the sides of the field.
Let the shorter side of the rectangular field be x m.
Longer side is x + 30 and the diagonal is x+60 In ∆ ABC,
AC2 = AB2 + BC2
(x + 60)2 = ( x + 30)2+ x2
x2 + 3600 + 120x = x2 + 900 + 60x + x2
x2 + 900 + 60x – 3600 – 120x = 0
x2 – 60x – 2700 = 0
x2 – 90x + 30x – 2700 = 0
x(x – 90) + 30(x – 90) = 0
(x – 90) (x + 30) = 0
x – 90 = 0, x + 30 = 0
x = 90, x = – 30.
∴ The shorter side = x = 90m
The longer side = x + 30 = 90+30 = 120m. Question 28.

∴ The four angles are A, B, C and D which are a -3d, a – d, a + d, a + 3d respectively.
⇒ The least angle is a – 3d and the greatest angle is a + 3d.
