(iv) a prime number between 50 to 69.

**SOLUTIONS**

**SECTION-A**

**Solution 1.**

Let

\(x=\frac { 14588 }{ 625 } =\frac { 14588 }{ { 5 }^{ 4 } } \)

= \(\frac { 14588\times { 2 }^{ 4 } }{ { 2 }^{ 4 }\times { 5 }^{ 4 } } =\frac { 14588\times { 2 }^{ 4 } }{ 10^{ 4 } } \)

= \(\frac { 233408 }{ { 10 }^{ 4 } } \)

= 23.3408

So, decimal expression is 23.3408

**Solution 2.**

We have,

(x – 2)(x + 1) = (x -1) (x + 5)

x² – 2x + x – 2 = x² + 5x – x – 5

x² – x – 2 = x² + 4x – 5

– 5x + 3 = 0

Since, the above equation is not of the form ax² + bx + c = 0

Therefore, the given equation is not a quadratic equation.

**Solution 3.**

Given

∠AOB = 120° [Radii]

Since AO = OB

∴ ∆AOB is an isosceles triangle.

=> ∠OAB = ∠OBA [cpct]

∴ In ∆ABOB

∠OAB + ∠AOB + ∠OBA =180° [Angle sum property]

=> 2∠OAB + 120° = 180°

=> ∠OAB = ∠OBA = 30°

Now, ∠OAP = 90° [∴ Tangent AP ⊥ radius OA]

Thus, ∠BAP = ∠OAP – ∠OAB

= 90° – 30° = 60°

Hence, ∠BAP = 60°. Ans.

**Solution 4.**

We have,

2 cosec² θ(1- cos θ) (1 + cos θ) = k + 2

=> 2 cosec² θ (1 – cos² θ) = k + 2 [∵ (a + b)(a – b) = a²-b²)]

=> 2 cosec² θ sin² θ = k + 2 [∵ 1 – cos² θ = sin² θ]

=> \(2\times \frac { 1 }{ { sin }^{ 2 }\theta } \times { sin }^{ 2 }\theta =k+2\)

=> 2 = k + 2

=> k = 0 Ans.

**Solution 5.**

Given sector is OAPB.

Radius of circle, r = 4 cm

Angle of sector, θ = 60°

Now,

Hence, the area of the sector is 8.37 cm².

**Solution 6.**

Total number of possible outcomes = 50 = n(S)

Let E be the event that the number on the card drawn is divisible by both 3 and 5.

∴ E = {15, 30,45}

∴ n(E) = 3

∴ \(P(E)=\frac { n(E) }{ n(S) } =\frac { 3 }{ 50 } \)

**SECTION-B**

**Solution 7:**

Let us assume that 7√5 is rational.

Therefore, we can find co-prime a and b(≠ 0) such that

7√5 = \(\\ \frac { a }{ b } \)

or

√5 = \(\\ \frac { a }{ 7b } \)

Now, since a, b and 7 are integers, therefore \(\\ \frac { a }{ 7b } \) is rational and so √5 is rational, which is not true as √5 is irrational.

Hence, we conclude that 7√5 is irrational.

**Solution 8:**

Two-digit numbers that are divisible by 5 are

10,15,20,…, 90,95.

It is an A.P. with a = 10, d = 15 – 10 = 5 and a_{n} = 95

We know a_{n} = a + (n – 1 )d

=> 95 = 10 + (n – 1)5

=> 85 = (n – 1)5

=> 17 = n – 1

=> n =18

So, there are 18 two-digit numbers that are divisible by 5.

**Solution 9:**

Let the required point on the X-axis be (a, 0).

Then, according to question,

Distance of (a, 0) and (2, – 5) = Distance of (a, 0) and ( – 2, 9)

=> \(\sqrt { { (2-a) }^{ 2 }+{ (-5-0) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { { (-2-a) }^{ 2 }+{ (9-0) }^{ 2 } } \)

Squaring on both sides, we get

(2 – a)² + 5² = (- 2 – a)² + 9²

=> 4 + a² – 4a + 25 = 4 + a² + 4a + 81

=> – 8a = + 56

=> a = – 7

∴ ( – 7, 0) is the point which is equidistant from (2, – 5) and (- 2, 9).

**Solution 10:**

Let ABC be a triangle, then

\(cosA=\frac { AB }{ AC } =\frac { 3 }{ 5 } \)

Let AB = 3k and AC = 5k

**Solution 11:**

L.H.S = \(\frac { cosA }{ 1+sinA } +\frac { 1+sinA }{ cosA } \)

\(\frac { { cos }^{ 2 }A+{ (1+sinA) }^{ 2 } }{ (1+sinA)cosA } \)

**Solution 12:**

Let r be the radius of the circle,

Given

circumference = 2πr = 44 cm

**SECTION-C**

**Solution 13:**

Let k be any integer.

Using Euclid’s division lemma with k and 6, we get

k = 6q + r, where 0 ≤ r ≤ 6

For r = 0

k = 6q i.e., even number

For r = 1

k = 6q + 1 i.e., odd number

For r = 2

k = 6q + 2 i.e., even number

For r = 3

k = 6q + 3 i.e., odd number

For r = 4

k = 6q + 4 i.e., even number

For r = 5

k = 6q + 5 i.e., odd number

Therefore, any positive odd integer is of the form (6q + 1) or (6q + 3) or (6q + 5).

**Solution 14:**

Given equations are,

\(\frac { 10 }{ x+y } +\frac { 2 }{ x-y } =4 \)

and \(\frac { 15 }{ x+y } -\frac { 5 }{ x-y } =-2\)

**Solution 15:**

Given equation is,

2x² + x – 4 = 0

On multiplying the equation by 1/2 ,we get

**Solution 16:**

First A.P. is 63, 65, 67, …

Here, a = 63

d = 65 – 63 = 2

.’. nth term, a_{n} = a + (n – 1)d

= 63 + (n – 1) 2

= 63 + 2n – 2

= 61 + 2n

**Solution 17:**

L.H.S = (cosec A – sin A) (sec A – cos A)

= \(\left( \frac { 1 }{ sinA } -sinA \right) \left( \frac { 1 }{ cosA } -cosA \right) \)

**Solution 18:**

Since, the angle in a semi-circle is a right angle

∠RPQ = 90°

Thus, PQR represents a right angled triangle

where PR = 9 cm, PQ = 12 cm

In ∆PQR,using Pythagoras theorm

**Solution 19:**

Consider a parallelogram ABCD circumscribing a circle. Sides AB, BC, CD and AD touch the circle at points P, Q, R and S respectively.

Since the lengths of the tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.

AP =AS …(i)

PB =BQ …(ii)

DR =DS …(ii)

CR = CQ …(iv)

On adding all equations, we get

(AP + PB) + (DR + CR) = (AS + DS) + (BQ + CQ)

=> AB + CD = AD + CB

=> 2AB = 2BC [∵ in a parallelogram, opposite sides are equal]

=> AB =BC

Since, adjacent sides of a parallelogram are equal

∴ ABCD is a rhombus.

**Solution 20:**

Given : XY and X’Y’ are parallel.

Tangent AB is another tangent which touches the circle at C.

**Solution 21:**

Total number of outcomes = 52 = n(S).

(i) Let E denote the event of getting a king of black colour.

There are two cards in this category i.e., king of club and king of spade.

**Solution 22:**

**SECTION-D**

**Solution 23:**

The given A.P. is 8,10,12,…

So, a = 8, d = 10 – 8 = 2.

We know that an = a + (n – 1 )d

So, 40th term = a_{40} = 8 + 39 x 2

= 8 + 78

= 86

Hence, the 40th term of the given A.P. is 86.

Now, since the A.P. has a total of 40 terms. So, to find the sum of last n terms, we take

Hence, the sum of last 10 terms of the given A.P. is 770.

**Solution 24:**

Let the length of the piece of the cloth be x m.

Total cost of the piece of cloth = Rs 100

Then cost per metre = Rs \(\\ \frac { 100 }{ x } \)

New length = (x + 5) m

Since the cost of the piece of cloth remains unchanged

**Solution 25:**

We have, A(4, -1) and B(- 2, – 3)

Let P and Q be the points of trisection of A and B.

i.e., AP = PQ = QB

**Solution 26:**

Given, PA and PB are two tangents drawn from an external point P to the circle C(0, r).

Construction: Join OA and OB.

To prove : PA = PB

Proof : Since, tangent at any point to a circle is perpendicular to the

radius through the point of contact

PA ⊥ OA and PB ⊥ OB

**Solution 27:**

Steps of the construction :

(1) Draw a line segment BC = 10 cm.

(2) Taking B point as centre and radius 8 cm, draw an arc.

(3) Similarly, taking point C as centre and radius equal to 6 cm, draw an arc. Let the two arcs intersect at point A.

(4) Join AB, AC.

Thus, ∆ABC is obtained.

(5) Draw a ray BX making an acute angle with line BC on the opposite side of vertex A.

(7) Join CB_{5}.

(8) Through B_{3}, draw a line parallel to CB_{5} intersecting BC at point C.

(9) Draw a line parallel to line AC through C’ intersecting AB at A’.

Thus, ∆A’BC’ is obtained whose sides are \(\\ \frac { 3 }{ 5 } \) of corresponding sides of ∆ABC.
