**Section A: Question No 1 to 7 carry 2 marks each**.

**Ques [1] : Find the GCD of the following polynomials**** 12x ^{4} + 324x and 36x^{3} + 90x^{2} – 54x**

Solution: 12x^{4} + 324x = 12x(x^{3} + 27) = 6 × 2x(x^{3} + (3)^{3}) = 6 × 2x (x + 3)(x^{2} + 9 –3x)

36x^{3} + 90x^{2} – 54x = 18x(2x^{2} + 5x – 3) = 6 × 3x (2x^{2} + 6x – x – 3)

= 6 × 3x (2x (x+ 3) – 1(x + 3))

= 6 × 3x (x+ 3)(2x – 1)

Thus, the GCD of the given polynomials is 6x (x + 3).

**Ques [2] : Solve for x and y:**

** and **

Solution: We are given the equations as

** ** …(1)

…(2)

From (1) + (2), we get

** **Now, putting the value of x in the equation (1), we get

** **Thus, the solution of the given equations are x = 2a and y = –2b.

**OR**

** Solve for x and y: **** 31x + 29y = 33 and 29x + 31y = 27**

Solution: We are given the equations as

31x + 29y = 33 …(1)

29x + 31y = 27 …(2)** **

From (1) + (2), we get

⇒31x + 29y + 29x + 31y = 33 + 27

⇒60x + 60y = 60

⇒60(x + y) = 60

⇒x + y = 1 …(3)

From (1) – (2), we get

⇒31x + 29y – 29x – 31y = 33 – 27

⇒2x – 2y = 6

⇒2(x – y) = 6

⇒x – y = 3 …(4)

From (3) + (4), we get

⇒2x = 4 x = 2

From (3) – (4), we get

⇒2y = –2 y = –1

Thus, we get x = 2 and y = –1

**Ques [3]: Find the sum of all the three digits whole numbers which are multiple of 7**

Solution: All the three-digits whole numbers are 100, 101, 102,…, 999.

Out of which, the multiples of 7 are 105, 112, 119, …, 994

Now,

⇒994 = 105 + (n – 1)(7)

⇒994 –105 = 7(n –1)

⇒889 = 7(n –1)

⇒ n = 127 + 1 = 128

Thus, the required sum of the whole numbers which are multiples of 7 is

**Ques [4]: In the figure (1), PQ || AB and PR || AC. Prove that QR || BC.**

Solution: Since PQ || AB in ∆OAB, we get

…(1) [ By Basic Proportionally Theorem ] ** **

** **Since PR || AC in ∆OAC, we get

…(2) [ By Basic Proportionally Theorem ]

From the equations (1) and (2), we get

QR | | BC [ By Converse of Basic Proportionally Theorem ]

**OR**

** In the figure (2) incircle of ∆ABC touches its sides AB, BC and CA at D, E and F respectively. ****If AB = AC, prove that BE = EC**

Solution:

We know that the tangents drawn from an external point to the circle are equal in length. Thus, we get

Now, we have AB = AC ⇒ x + y = x + z ⇒ y = z ⇒ BE = EC.

**Ques [5]: If the mean of the following frequency distribution is 49, find the missing ****frequency p:**

CLASS | FREQUENCY |
---|---|

0-20 | 2 |

20-40 | 6 |

40-60 | P |

60-80 | 5 |

80-100 | 2 |

Solution:

Class | Class-Mark (x) | Frequency (f) | x×f |
---|---|---|---|

TOTAL | 15 + p | 730 + 50p | |

0-20 | 10 | 2 | 20 |

20-40 | 30 | 6 | 180 |

40-60 | 50 | p | 50p |

60-80 | 70 | 5 | 350 |

80-100 | 90 | 2 | 180 |

Now, we know that the mean of the grouped frequency is

**Ques [6]: A wrist watch is available for Rs. 1000 cash or Rs. 500 as cash down payment ****followed by three equal monthly ****installments**** of Rs. 180. Calculate the rate of ****interest charged under the installment plan.**

Solution: Here, we have

P = Rs. 1000,

A = Rs. (500 + 180 × 3) = Rs. (500 + 540) = Rs 1040

T = 3 Months = years

SI = A – P = Rs. (1040 – 1000) = Rs. 40. Thus, we need to find the rate of interest R = ?

We know that

Therefore, the rate of the interest is R = 16% per year

**Ques [7]: An unbiased die is tossed once. Find the probability of getting ****(i) ****A multiple of 2 or 3 **

** (ii) ****A prime number greater than 2.**

Solution: In an unbiased die, we have {1,2,3,4,5,6} Thus, we have n(S) = 6

(i) A = multiple of 2 = {2,4,6} ⇒ n(A) = 3

B = multiple of 3 = {3,6} ⇒ n(B) = 2

A ∩ B = multiple of both 2 and 3 = {6} ⇒ n(A ∩ B) = 1

Thus, the required probability of getting a multiple of 2 or 3 is

(ii) A = A prime number greater than 2 = {3,5} n(A) = 2.

Thus, the required probability of getting a prime number greater than 2 is
