ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 5 with Answers 1
Answer:
In ΔACD,
AC = CD  (Given)
⇒ ∠ADC = ∠CAD (Angles opposite to equal sides)
Now, ∠ADC + ∠CAD + ∠ACD = 180° (Sum of angles in a triangle is 180°)
2 ∠ADC + 56° = 180°    (∠ADC – ∠CAD)
⇒ 2∠ADC = 180° – 56°
⇒ ∠ADC \(\frac{124^{\circ}}{2}\)
∠ADC = \(\frac{124^{\circ}}{2}\) = 62°

In ΔABD, AD = BD (Given)
∠ABD = ∠ BAD (Angles opposite to equal sides)
Now, ∠ABD + ∠BAD = ∠ADC
(Exterior angle is equal to sum of interior opposite angles)
2∠ABD =62°
∠ABD\(\frac{62^{\circ}}{2}\)=31°
In ΔABC, ∠A + ∠B + ∠ C = 180° (Sum of angles in a triangle is 180°)
x°+31°+56°=180°
x° = 180°- 87°= 93°

(c) Of two unequal chords of a circle, prove that longer chord is nearer to the centre of the circle.
Answer:
Given : AB > CD, OM⊥AB, ON ⊥ CD.
Join OA and OC.
ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 5 with Answers 18

We know perpendicular drawn from the centre to the chord bisects the chord.
∴ AM= \(\frac{1}{2}\)AB
and CN = \(\frac{1}{2}\)CD
Now, AM > CN(∵ AB > CD)
In ΔOAM OA2 = AM2 + OM2 (Pythagoras theorem)
In ΔOCN OC2 = CN2 + ON2 (Pythagoras theorem)
AM2 + OM2 =CN2 +ON2(∵ OA = OC, Radii)
⇒ OM2 – ON2 = – (AM2 – CN2)
⇒ OM2 – ON2 <O (∵AM > CN)
⇒ OM2 < ON2
⇒ OM < ON
i.e., longer chord is nearer to the centre.
Hence Proved

Question 7.
(a) If x + y = 10 and x2 + y1 = 58, find the value of x3 + y3.
Answer:
Given :
x + y =10, x2 + y2 = 58.
(x + y)2 = x2 + y2 + 2xy
⇒ 102 = 58 + 2xy
2xy = 100 – 58
⇒ xy = \(\frac{42}{2} \) = 21
x3 + y3 = (x + y)3 – 3xy (x + y)
= 103 – 3 x 21 x 10
= 1000 – 630 = 370.

(b) The larger of two supplementary angles exceeds the smaller by 18°. Find the angles.
Answer:
Let the larger supplementary angle be
Then, smaller supplementary angle = 180° – x According to the question,

⇒ x= \(\frac{198^{\circ}}{2}\) = 99°
∴ 180° –  x = 1800 99° = 81°
The supplementary angles are 990 and 81°.

ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 5 with Answers 4
Answer:
Given: ∠B: ∠A: ∠E =5:3:4
Let Now, ∠B = 5x, ∠A = 3x, ∠E = 4x.
∠C + ∠D = 180°(Co-interior angles; BC||ED)
Sum of angles in a figure with number of sides ‘n’ = (n – 2) x 180°
In pentagon, sum of angles = (5 – 2) x 180°
= 3 x 180° = 540°
∴ ∠ A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D + ∠E = 540°
⇒ 3x + 5x + 180° + 4x = 540°
⇒ 12x = 540° – 180°
⇒ \(x=\frac{360^{\circ}}{12}\)
⇒ x = 30°
∴ ∠B = 5x = 5 x 30° = 150°

Given : Mean height of 10 girls = 1.38 m
∴ Sum of heights of 10 girls = 1.38 x 10 = 13.8 m
and Mean height of 40 boys = 1.44 m
∴ Sum of heights of 40 boys = 1.44 x 40 = 57.6 m.

AB2 = AC2 + 4 CD2  …(i)
In ΔACD,
AD2 = AC2 + CD2  (Pythagoras theorem)
⇒ CD2 = AD2 – AC2 …(ii)
From equations (i) and (ii), we get
AB2 = AC2 + 4 (AD2 – AC2)
= AC2 + 4AD2 – 4AC2
= 4AD2 – 3AC2

(b) The side of a square exceeds the side of another square by 3 cm and the sum of the areas of the two squares is 549 cm2. Find the perimeters of the squares.
Answer:
Let the side of one square be x cm
Then, side of other square = (x + 3) cm.
Area of two squares are x2 cm2 and (x + 3)2 cm2, respectively.
According to the question,
x2 + (x + 3)2 = 549 ⇒ x2 + x2 + 6x + 9 = 549
⇒ 2x2 + 6x – 540 = 0
⇒ x2 + 3x – 270 = 0
⇒ x2 + (18 – 15)x – 270 =0
⇒ x2 + 15x – 15x – 270 =0
⇒ x (x + 18) – 15 (x + 18) =0
⇒ (x + 18) (x – 15) =0
⇒ x = – 18 or 15
∴ x – 15      (∵ x cannot be negative)
∴ x+ 3 =15+ 3 = 18
∴ Perimeter of one square = 4 x 15 = 60 cm
and Perimeter of other square = 4 x 18 = 72 cm

Question 1.
(a) Factorize : 8(a – 2b)2 – 2a + 4b – 1
Answer:
8 (a – 2b)2 -2a + 4b – 1 = 8 (a- 2b)2 -2(a – 2b) – 1
a – 2b = x
Then, the expression becomes
= 8x2 – 2x – 1
= 8x2 – 4x + 2x – 1
= 4x (2x – 1) + 1 (2x – 1)
= (2x – 1) (4x + 1)

Question 2.
(a) A man borrowed ₹15,000 for 2 years. The rate of interest for the two successive years are 8% and 10% respectively. If he repays ₹6,200 at the end of first year, find the outstanding amount at the end of the second year.
Answer:
(a) For 1st year : P = ₹ 15,000, R = 8% p.a.
\(\mathrm{I}=\frac{15000 \times 8 \times 1}{100}\) = ₹ 16,200
A = P + I = 15,000 + 1,200 =₹16,200
Amount of money repaid = ₹ 6,200
For 2nd year : P = 16,200 – 6,200 = ₹10,000, R = 10% p.a.
\(\mathrm{I}=\frac{10,000 \times 10 \times 1}{100}\) = = ₹1,000
∴ A =P+I=10,000+1,000=11,000
∴ The amount outstanding at the end of 2nd year = 11, 000.

(b) The sum of a two-digit number and the number obtained by reversing the order of its digits is 165. If the digits differ by 3, find the number.
Answer:
Let the digits in tens and units place be x and y respectively.
The number = 10x + y
The number obtained by reversing digits = 10y + x By 1st condition,
(10 + y) + (10y + x) = 165
⇒ 11x + 11y = 165
⇒ x + y =15 …(ii)
By 2nd condition, x-y =3 …(iii)
or y-x =3 …(iv)
Adding (ii) and (iii), we get 2x = 18
⇒ x =9
Putting x = 9 in (ii), we get y = 15 – 9 = 6
Again, adding (ii) and (iv), we get
2 y =18
⇒ y =9
Putting y = 9 in (ii), we get x = 15 – 9 = 6.
Substituting these values in (i), we get
The number = 10 x 9 + 6 or 10 x 6 + 9 = 96 or 69

(b) \(\text { If } \frac{\log a}{b-c}=\frac{\log b}{c-a}=\frac{\log c}{a-b}, \text { prove that }: a^{a} . b^{b} \cdot c^{c}=1 \text { . }\)
Answer:
\(\frac{\log a}{b-c}=\frac{\log b}{c-a}=\frac{\log c}{a-b}=k(\text { say })\)
log a =k(b – c); log b = k(c-a); log c = k(a-b)
Now, a log a + b log c + c log c = ak (b – c) + bk (c – a) + ck (a – b)
⇒ log ab + log bb + log cc = kab – kac + kbc – kab + kac – kbc
⇒ log (aa. bb . cc) = 0
⇒ log (aa. bb . cc)= log 1
⇒ aa. bb. cc = 1.
Hence Proved.

(c) Prove that √2 is not a rational number.
ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 2 with Answers 5
Answer:
Let us assume that√2 is a rational number.
If \(\sqrt{2}=\frac{p}{q}, p, q \in \mathrm{I}\) have no comman factor and C”q≠ 0.
\(2=\frac{p^{2}}{q^{2}} \Rightarrow p^{2}=2 q^{2} \Rightarrow p^{2}\) C”is an even integer
⇒ p is an even integer
⇒ p = 2m, where m∈I
⇒ p2 = 4m2 ⇒ 2y2 = 4m2 ⇒ q2 = 2m2
⇒ q2 is an even integer
⇒ y is an even integer.
Thus, p and q are both even integers and therefore, have a common factor 2 which contradicts that p and q have no common factor.
√2 is not a rational number.
Hence Proved.

(i) Prove that point C is mid-point of AQ.
(ii) Find the perimeter of quadrilateral BCQP. [4]
ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 1 with Answers 2
Answer:
(a) Here, P = ₹ 16000
For first year: R = 10% , T = 1 year
∴ \(\text { Interest }=\frac{16000 \times 10 \times 1}{100}= 1600\)
Amount = ₹ (16000 + 1600) = ₹ 17600
∴ Amount repaid = ₹ 5600.

ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 1 with Answers

For Second Year :
P = (17600 – 5600) = 12000, R = 12% , T = 1 year
∴ Intrest = \(\frac{12000 \times 12 \times 1}{100}\) = ₹1440
∴ Amount =(12000+1440) = ₹13440

Question 5.
(a) Find the coordinates of the points on Y-axis which are at a distance of 5√2 units from
the point (5, 8). [3]
Answer:
(a) Let the coordinates of the point on Y-axis be (0, y).
Distance = 5 √2
⇒\( \sqrt{(0-5)^{2}+(y-8)^{2}}=5 \sqrt{2} \)
Squaring both sides, we get
(0-5)2 + (y-8)2 = (5-√2)2
⇒ 25 + y2 – 2 y-8 + 64 = 50
⇒ y2 – 16y + 89 – 50 = 0
⇒ y2 – 16y + 39 = 0
⇒ y2 – (13 + 3)y + 39 = 0
⇒ y2-13y-3y+ 39 =0
⇒ y(y – 13) – 3(y – 13) = 0
⇒ (y – 13) (y – 3) = 0
⇒ y-13=0 or y-3 = 0
⇒ y = 13 or y = 3.

ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 1 with Answers 7
Answer:
Given: ∠ABC = 66°, ∠DAC = 38°, CE ⊥AB, AD ⊥ BC.
In ∠ABD, ∠BAD + ∠ABD = ∠ADC (Exterior angle is equal to sum
of interior opposite angles)
∠BAD+66°=90°
∠BAD=90°- 66°=24°.
In ∠SACE, ∠ACE + ∠AEC + ∠CAE = 180° (Sum of angles in a triangle is 180°)
∠ACE + 90° + (24° + 38°) = 180°
∠ACE + 152° = 180°
∠ACE = 180° – 152° = 28°.
Now, ∠CAP > ∠ACP ( 38°> 28°)
CP > AP (In a triangle, greater angle has greater side opposite to it)
Hence Proved.

(b) Mr. Mohan has ₹ 256 in the form of ₹ 1 and ₹ 2 coins. If the number of ₹ 2 coins are three more than twice the number of ₹ 1 coins, find the total value of ₹ 2 coins. [3]
Answer:
Total amount = ₹ 256
Let the no. of ₹ 1 coins be x and that of ₹ 2 coins be y.
∴ Value of x coins = ₹ 1 × x = ₹  x
Value of y coins = ₹ 2 x y = ₹ 2y.
∴ x + 2y = 256
Also, y = 3 + 2x
Using equation (ii) in (i), we have
Also, y=3+2x
Using equation (ii) in (i), we have
⇒ x+2(3+2x)= 256
⇒ x+6+4x= 256
⇒ 5x =256 – 6
⇒ x=\(\frac{250}{5}\)=50.
Putting the value of x in equation (ii), we get
y =3+2x 50 =3+ 100 = 103.
∴ Total value of ₹ 2 coins = ₹ 2y
=₹ 2x 103
=₹ 206.

(b) In the given figure, arc AB = twice (arc BC) and ∠AOB = 80°. Find : [3]
(i) ∠BOC
(ii) ∠OAC
ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 1 with Answers 8
Answer:
(i) Given: Arc AB = 2 (arc BC),∠AOB =80°
∠AOB=2∠BOC
∠BOC = \(\frac{1}{2}\) ∠AOB
\(\frac{1}{2}\) × 80°
=40°

(ii) In ΔAOC
OA = OC (Radii)
⇒ ∠OCA = ∠OAC (Angles opposite to equal
sides are equal)
Now, ∠OAC + ∠AOC + ∠OCA = 180° (Angle sum property)
∠OAC + (∠AOB + ∠BOC) + ∠OAC = 180° (∠OAC= ∠OCA)
= 2∠OAC + (80° + 40°) = 180°
2∠OAC + 120° = 180°
2∠OAC = 180° – 120° = 60°
∴ ∠OAC =\(\frac{60^{\circ}}{2}\) 3o°

Answer:
(a) Given : AB = AC, BC = CD, ∠BAC = 28°
ICSE Class 9 Maths Sample Question Paper 1 with Answers 34
Since, AB = AC
∠ABC = ∠ACB. (Equal sides have equal angles opposite to them)
∠ABC + ∠ACB + ∠BAC = 1800 (Sum of angleš in a triangle is 1800)
∠ABC + ∠ABC + 28° = 180°
2∠ABC =180°-28°
∠ABC= \(\frac{152^{\circ}}{2}\)=76°
∠BDC = ∠CBD = 76°
Now, ∠ACD + ∠CAD = ∠BDC (Exterior angle is equal to sum of interior opposite angles)
∠ACD + 28° = 76°
∠ACD = 76° – 28° = 480

(b) Given : A parallelogram ABCD.

To prove:∠A = ∠C and ∠B = ∠D.
Proof: AB II DC, AD II BC ( ABCD is a parallelogram)
∠A + ∠D = 1800 (Co-interior angles) …(i)
and ∠D + ∠C = 180° (Co-interior angles) …(ii)
From (i) and (ii),∠A + ∠D =∠D + ∠C
∠A=∠C
Similarly,∠B = ∠D.Hence Proved.

(c) In triangle, length of equal sides (a) = 5 cm, base (b) = 8 cm.
In rectangle, Length (L) = 8 cm, Breadth (B) = 6.5 cm.
(i) The area of cross-section = Area of rectangle + Area of triangle

(ii)  Length of metal = 6 m = 600 cm.
Volume = Area of cross-section x Length
= 64 cm2 x 600 cm
= 38400 cm3.
