p(x) = g(x) q(x) + r(x) 1 650 1170
= (2x + 1) (x3 + 3x2 – x + 1) + 0
p(x) = 2x (x3 + 3x2 -x + 1) + 1(x3 + 3x2 – x + 1)
= 2x4 + 6x3 – 2x2+ 2x + x3 + 3x2 – x + 1

Question 17.
Prove that if x and y are odd positive integers, then x2 + y2 is even but not divisible by 4.
Let x = 2m + 1 and y = 2n + 1 for some integers m and n.
x2 + y2 = (2m + 1)2 + (2n + l)2
x2 + y2 = 4m2 + 4m + 1 + 4n2 + 1 + 4n
= 4m2 + 4n2 + 4m + 4n + 2.
x2 + y2 = 4(m2 + n2) + 4 (m + n) + 2
x2 + y2 = 4 {(m2 + n2) + (m + n)} +2
x2 + y2 = 4q + 2, where q = (m2 + n2 ) + (m+n)
⇒ x2 + y2 is even and leaves the remainder 2 when divided by 4.
⇒ x2 + y2 is even but not divisible by 4.

Question 18.

-x + y = -1 …(4)
Solve (3) and (4) y = 2
Substitute the value of y in equation (3)
x + y = 5
x + 2 = 5

A(1, -1) B(x, 1)C(4,5)
Area of the triangle = 0, when points are collinear.
0 = x1(y2 – y3) + x2(y3 – y1) + x3 (y1 – y2)
0 = (1) (1 – 5) + x(5 + 1) + 4(-1 – 1)
0 = -4 + 6x – 8
6x – 12 = 0
x = 12/6
x = 2

Question 21.
ABC is a right angled triangle, having [B = 90°. If BD = DC, Show that AC2 = 4AD2 – 3AB2 AC2 = AB2 + BC2 (Pythagoras)
AC2 = AB2 + 2(BD)2
AC2 = AB2 + 4BD2
In right angled ∆ ABD,

A box contains 90 dices which are numbered from 1 to 90. If one dise is drawn at random from the box, find the probability that it bears
(i) two digit number
(ii) a perfect square number.
The numbers in the dise form the sample space
S = {1,2, 3,4,…….. 90}
One dise can be drawn out of 90 in 90 ways. .
n(s) = 90

i) There are 90 -9 = 81, two digit numbers, out of which one dise can be drawn in 81 ways.
∴ n(A) = 81
P(A) = $$\frac{n(A)}{n(S)}=\frac{81}{90}=\frac{9}{10}$$

ii) The perfect square numbers are B= {1,4,9, 16,25,36,49,64,81}

Question 25.
The sum of the ages of A and B is 85 years. 5 years ago, the age of A was twice that of B. Find the present ages.
Let the present age of A be x years.
Let the present age of B be y years.
Sum of their ages = 85 x + y = 85 …….. (1)
Five years back, age of A was (x – 5) and that of B was (y – 5).
The age A is twice that of B.
∴ x – 5 = 2(y – 5) ……(2)
x – 5 = 2y – 10
x – 2y = -10 + 5
x – 2y = -5 ……(2)
Solve (1) and (2) Substitute y in (1)
x + y=85
x + 30 = 85
x = 85 – 30 = 55
x = 55
∴ Present age of A is 55 years and B = 30 years.

A piece of work can be done by 2 men and 7 boys in 4 days. The same piece of work can be done by 4 men and 4 boys in 3 days. How long it would take to do the same work by one man or one boy?
Let x and y be the number of days in which one man can complete the work.
∴ In 1 day a man can do 1/x th work and
In 1 day a man can do 1/y th work.
2 men and 7 boys can complete the work in 4 days.
∴ They can complete in 1/4 th of the work in one day.
∴ $$\frac{2}{x}+\frac{7}{y}=\frac{1}{4}$$ …… (1)
4 men and 4 boys together complete the work in 3days, and they can complete it in 1/3 rd of work. 4(2y + 7x) = xy
8y + 28x = xy …….(3)
3(4y + 4x) = xy
12y + 12x = xy ……..(4)
Solve (3) and (4)
(8y + 2x = xy) x 12
(l2y+ 12x = xy) x 18 4 y = 240
y = 240/4
y = 60

3(4y + 4x) xy
12y+12x = xy ………..(4)
4y = 240
y = 240/4 = 60
Substitute y in equation (3)
8y + 28x = xy
8(60) + 28x = xy
480 + 28x = x(60)
480 + 28x = 60x
480 = 60x – 28x
480 = 32x
x = $$\frac{480}{32}=\frac{120}{8}=\frac{30}{2}$$ = 15
x = 15
Thus, one man can complete the work in 15 days and one boy can do the work in 60 days.

Question 26.
Find the zeroes of the polynomial p(y) = y3 – 5y2 – 2y + 24 if it is given that Sum of the two zeros is Answer:
Let α, β,γ be the zeros of the given polynomial.
p(y) = y3 – 5y2 – 2y + 24
α + β = 7
Sum of the zeros α + β + γ = 5
7 + r = 5
r = 5 – 7 = -2
r = -2
Sum of product of zeroes taken two at a αβ + βr + rα = -2/1 = – 2
αβ + r(β + α) = -2
αβ + (7) (-2) = -2
αβ-14 = -2
αβ = -2+ 14
αβ = 12
(α – β )2 = (α + β)2– 4αβ
= (7)2 – 4(12)
(α – β)2 = 49 – 48
α – β = ±1
Solve for α and β. When α – β = +1
α + β = 7
α – β = 1
2α =8
α = 8/2 = 4
α = 4
Substitute the value of a in α + β =7
4+p =7
β =7-4 = 3
β = 3
Solve for α and β when α – β = -1 α = 6/2 = 3
α = 3
α + β = 7
3 + β=7
β = 7 – 3
a + β = 7
β = 4
When α – β = 1,
the values are α = 4, β = 3, r = -2.
When α – β = -1,
The values are α = 3, β = 4, r = -2.

Question 27.
The diagonal of a rectangular field is 60 metres more than the shorter side, if the longer side is 30 metres more than the shorter side, find the sides of the field. Let the shorter D side be x mtr.
Longer side is 30m more than the shorter side. A Longer side = (x + 30)m.
Diagonal is 60m more than the shorter side.
Diagonal = (x + 60) m
AC2 = AB2 + BC2 (Pythagoras)
(x + 60)2 = (x + 30)2 + x2
x2+(60)2 + 2x (60) = x2 + (30)2 + 2(x)(30)+ x2
x2 + 3600 + 120x = x2 + 900 + 60x + x2
-x2 + 60x + 2700 = 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 or x + 30 = 0
x = 90 or x = – 30
∴ Shorter side = 90m = BC = x
Longer side = x + 30 = 90 + 30 = 120m
Diagonal = x + 60 = 90 + 60 = 150m

Sum of the areas of two squares is 468m2. If the difference of their perimeters is 24m, find the sides of two squares.
Let the sides of the two squares be x&y. Sum of the areas of two squares = 468
x2 + y2 = 468 ……(1)
Difference of their perimeters = 24m.
4x – 4y = 24 x – y = 6
x = 6 + y …….(2)
Substitute the value of x in (1)
x2 + y2 = 468
(6 + y)2 + y2 = 468
36 + y2+ 12y + y2 = 468
2y2 + 12y + 36 = 468
Divide by 2
y2 +6y+ 18 = 234 y2 + 6y = 234 – 18
y2 + 6y – 216 = 0
y2+18y – 12y -216 = 0
y(y + 18)-12(y + 18) = 0
(y + 18) (y – 12) = 0
y+18 = 0, y -12 = 0
y = -18,y = 12
∴ x = 6+y = 6 + 12 = 18m
The sides of two squares are 18m and 12m. Question 28.

Prove that the angle between the two tangents drawn from an external point to a circle is supplementary to the angle subtended by the line-segment joining the points of contact at the centre. Data: ‘O’ is the centre of the circle PA and PB are the two tangents drawn from an external point P. OA and OB are radii of the circle.
To prove that: ∠APB+ ∠AOB = 180°
Proof: In AAPO and ABPO
∠OAP = ∠OBP = 90°
(∵ Angle between the radius and tangent at the point of contact is 90°)
OP = OP (∵ Common side)
OA = OB (∵ Radii of the same circle) According to RHS postulate AAPO ABPO
∠OAP = ∠OBP = 90°
∠OAP + ∠OBP = 90° + 90° = 180°
⇒ Opposite angles of OAPB quadrilateral are supplementary
∴ OAPB is a cylic quadrilateral
