Question 1.
(a) Evaluate without using tables :
sin 38° sin 52° – cos 38° cos 52°.
sin 38° sin 52° – cos 38° cos 52° = sin 38° sin (90° – 38°) – cos 38° cos (90° – 38°)
= sin 38° cos 38° – cos 38° sin 38°
= 0. (b) In the figure, CD is a diameter which meets the chord AB at E such that AE = BE = 4 cm. If CE = 3 cm, find the radius of the circle Given : CD is a diameter, AE = BE = 4 cm, CE = 3 cm.
∠OEB = 90° (∵ E is the mid-point of BA).
Let the radius OB = OC = r cm.
Then, OE = OC – CE = (r – 3) cm. In ΔOBE, by Pythagoras theorem,
OB2 = OE2 + BE2
⇒ r2 = (r – 3)2 + 42
⇒ r2 = r2 – 2.r.3 + 9 + 16
⇒ 6r = 25
⇒ $$r=\frac{25}{6}=4 \frac{1}{6}$$
The required radius = $$4 \frac{1}{6}$$ cm.

Class size =10. (c) Factorize : (a2 – b2) (c2 – d2) – 4 abcd. Question 3.
(a) Show that:   (b) In the adjoining figure, AB = CD, CE = BF and ∠ACE = ∠DBF. Prove that:
(i) ΔACE ≅ ΔDBE
(ii) AE = DF. Given: AB = CD,CE = BF and ∠ACE= ∠DBF.
AB = CD
AB + BC = BC + CD (Adding BC on both sides)
⇒ AC = BD.
(i) Now, in ΔACE and ΔDBF
AC = BD (Proved above)
∠ACE = ∠DBF (Given)
CE = BF (Given)
ΔACE ≅ ΔDBF (SAS axiom)
Hence Proved.

(ii) AE = DF (c.p.c.t.)
Hence Proved. (c) If log10y = x, find the value of 102x in terms of y.
Given:
log10 y = x
⇒ y = 10x
Or 10x = y
∴ 102x = (10x)2 = y2

Question 4.

Question 5.
(a) If x= $$7-4 \sqrt{3}$$,find the value of $$\sqrt{x}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}$$    (b) In the given figure, X and Y are mid-points of sides AB and AC respectively of ΔABC. If
= 6 cm, AB = 7.4 cm and AC = 6.4 cm, then find the perimeter of the trapezium XBCY. Given : BC = 6 cm, AB = 7.4 cm and AC = 6.4 cm X,
∴ Y are mid-points of AB and AC, respectively
∵ By mid-points theory. (c) The mean weight of 8 students is 46.5 kg. Three more students having weight 41.7 kg, 52.8 kg and 51.8 kg joined the group. What is the new mean weight of the students ?
Given : No. of students = 8, mean weight = 46.5 kg.
∴ Total weight of 8 students = 8 x 46.5 kg = 372 kg
∵ 3 more students joined the group,
∴ Total weight of 11 students = 372 + 41.7 + 52.8 + 51.8 = 518.3 kg.
∴ New mean of 11 students = $$\frac{518.3}{11}$$ = 47.12 kg. Question 6.
(a) Factorize : (x2 – 4x) {x2 – 4x – 1} – 20.
(x2 – 4x) (x2 – 4x – 1) – 20
Let x2 – 4x = a
⇒ a (a – 1) – 20 = a2 – a – 20
⇒ a2 – (5 – 4) a – 20
⇒ a2 -5a + 4a -20
⇒ a (a – 5) + 4 (a – 5)
⇒ (a – 5) (a + 4)
Putting the value of a = x2 – 4x, we get
(x2 – 4x – 5) (x2 – 4x + 4)
= (x2 – 5x + x -5) (x2 – 1. x .2 +22)
= {x {x – 5) + 1 (x – 5)} (x – 2)2
= (x -5) (x + 1) (x – 2)2.

(b) The ratio of incomes of two persons is 9 : 7 and the ratio of their expenditures is 4 : 3. If each of them saves ₹ 200 per month, find their monthly incomes.
The ratio of incomes = 9 : 7 and the ratio of expenditures = 4 : 3
Let their incomes be 9x and 7x and their expenditures be 4y and 3y.
:. Their savings are 9x – 4y and 7x – 3y respectively.
According to the question,
9x – = 200 ———- (i)
7x – = 200 ———- (ii)
Multiplying equation (i) by 3 and equation (ii) by 4, we get Their incomes are ₹ 1800 and ₹ 1400. (c) The centre of a circle is C (2α -1,3α +1) and it passes through the point A (- 3, – 1). If the diameter of the circle is of length 20 units, find the value (s) of a.
Given points are C(2α – 1, 3α+1) and A(-3,-1)
Diameter 20 units.  Question 7.
(a) Insert 3 rational numbers between $$\frac{1}{4}$$ and $$\frac{1}{2}$$.  (b) In the figure, ABCD is a quadrilateral in which AD = 13 cm, DC = 12 cm, BC = 3 cm and
∠ABD = ∠BCD = 90°. Calculate the length of AB. Given : AD = 13 cm, DC = 12 cm, BC = 3 cm and ∠ABD = ∠BCD = 90°. (Pythagoras theorem)
In ΔBCD, BD2 = BC2 + CD2
= 32 + 122 = 9 + 144 = 153
In ΔBCD, AD2 = BD2 + AB2
132= 153 + AB2
169 = 153 + AB2
AB2 = 169 – 153 = 16
AB = √16 = 4 cm.

(c) Prove that $$: \frac{1}{1+x^{b-a}+x^{c-a}}+\frac{1}{1+x^{a-b}+x^{c-b}}+\frac{1}{1+x^{b-c}+x^{a-c}}=1$$  Question 8.

(i) The coordinates of vertices of triangle are A (- 1, 2), B (- 3, – 1) and C (5, – 1).
(ii) From A, draw AM ⊥ BC.
Area of Δ ABC
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × BC × AM
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 8 × 3
= 12 sq. units. (c) Solve : $$\frac{8}{x+3}-\frac{3}{2-x}=2$$ Question 9.
(a) In the figure, ABCD is a parallelogram and P is any point on BC. Prove that area of ΔABP + area of ΔDPC = area of ΔAPD. Given : ABCD is a parallelogram
We know, triangles on same base and between same parallels are equal.
∴ Area of AAPD = Area of AABD ……. (i)
and Area of AABP = Area of ABDP ……. (ii)
Also, since diagonal of a parallelogram divides it into two triangles of equal area
∴ Area of ΔBCD = Area of ΔABD …… (iii)
⇒ Area of ΔBDP + Area of ΔDPC = Area of ΔABD
⇒ Area of ΔABP + Area of ΔDPC = Area of ΔAPD [Using (i) and (ii)]
Hence Proved.

(b) Factorize : 1+a+b+c+ab+bc+ca+abc.
1+a+b+c+ab+bc+ca+abc=(1+a)+(b+ab)+(c+ca)+(bc+abc)
=(1+a)+b(1+a)+c(1+a)+bc(1+a)
=(1+a)(1+b+c+bc)
=(1+a)((1+b)+c(1+b)
= (1+ a) (1+ b) (1+ c). (c) The area of cross-section of a pipe is 5.4 cm2 and water is pumped out of it at the rate of 27 km/h. Find in litres the volume of water which flows out of the pipe in one minute. Question 10.
