b) 10√2 c) 5√3 d) 1o√3
b)10√2
Solution :
In ∆ ABC
∠B = 90°∠C = 45° ∠Z = 45°
∴AB = BC = 10
AC2 = AB2 + BC2
ACv = 102 + 102
AC2 = 100 + 100
AC= $$\sqrt{100 \times 2}$$
AC=10√2  II. Answer the following questions: ( 1 x 8 = 8 )

Question 9.
Express 0.2317 in the form of p/q, where p and q are co-prime and also express q in the form 2n x 5m.
0.2317 $$\frac{2317}{10,000}$$ is in the form of p/q P = 2317 and q = 10000 are co-primes
Now
q = (10)4= (2 × 5)4=24 × 54

Question 10.
If one of the roots of the quadratic equation 3x2+ px – 4 = 0 is 4. Find the value of P.
Solution:
x = 4 is one of the roots of the equation.
3x2 + px – 4 = 0
3(4)2 + p(4) – 4=0
48 + 4p – 4 = 0
4p + 44 = 0 ‘
4p = -44
P = -44/4
P = -11

Question 11.
If A+B=90°, Cot B = $$\frac{3}{4}$$ then find the value of SinA
Solution :
In ∆ ABC
∠A + ∠B=90° (given)
.’. ∠C=90°
∠A < 90, ∠B < 90°
$$\frac{\mathrm{adj}}{\mathrm{opp}}=\frac{\mathrm{BC}}{\mathrm{AC}}=\frac{3}{4}$$
AB2 = AC2 + BC2
AB2 = 42 + 32
AB2= 16 + 9
AB2 = 25 AB = √25
AB = 5
∴ Sin A = $$\frac{\mathrm{opp}}{\mathrm{hyp}}=\frac{\mathrm{BC}}{\mathrm{AB}}=\frac{3}{5}$$ Question 12.
Find the fourth co – ordinate of the parallelogram ABQD. x+ 5 = 6
x = 6 – 5

A ball is drawn at random
∴ P(A) = $$\frac{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{A})}{n(s)}=\frac{4}{7}$$

Question 14.
Calculate the perimeter of a circle of area 154cm2?
Area of a circle = 154cm2
πr2 = 154
r2 = 154/π
r2 = 154 x $$\frac{7}{22}$$

= 154 – 98
= 56cm2 III. Answer the following: ( 2 × 8 = 16 )

Question 17.
Prove that √2 + √3 is an irrational number.
Let us assume √2 + √3 a Rational number.
⇒ √2 + √3 =a where a is a rational number
√3 = a-√2
Squaring on both sides.
(√3)2 = (a-√2 )2
3 = a2 + ( √2 )2 – 2a √2 ⇒ 3 = a2 + 2 – 2a√2
2√2 = a2 + 2 – 3
√2 = $$\frac{a^{2}-1}{2 a}$$
From this √2 is a rational number because $$\frac{a^{2}-1}{2 a}$$ is rational. But we know is irrational.
This leads to a contradiction. Hence, our assumption that A/2 + A/3 is rational is wrong
Hence √2 + √3 is an irrational number.

Question 18.
Prove that the area of the equilateral traingle described on the side of a square is half the area of the equilatiral triangle described on it’s square. PQRS is a sqaure.
∴ PQ = QR = RS = PS = ‘a’ units

PR2 = a2 + a2 = 2a2
PR = √2a2
= a√2

Tan 45° = BC/AB
I = BC/AB
∴ BC = AB = 100cm
In ∆ABD
Tan 60° = BD/AB  100 + CD = 100√3
CD = 100√3 – 100
CD = 100 × 1.73-100
CD =173-100

2 tables and 3 chairs together cost Rs. 4000 whereas 3 tables and 2 chairs together cost Rs. 5000. find the cost of each table and chair.
Let the cost of each table be Rs x and each chair be Rs. Divide by 5
x + y=1800
Subtracting : 1 and 2 ∴ cost of each chair = Rs. 400
consider, x + y = 1800
x +400 = 1800
x = 1800 + 400
x = 1400 Rs.
Cost of one Table = Rs. 1400/-

OR

The sum of a two digit number and the number formed by interchanging the digits is 110. If 10 is substracted from the first number, the new number formed is 4 more, than 5 times the sum of the digits of the first number. Find the number.
Let the number in the units place of digit number be ‘y’ and in tens place be x.
∴ The number = 10x + y
The new number formed by interchanging
digits = 10y + x
According to the data
(10x+y)+( 10y+x)= 110 ……(1)
=> 11x + 11y = 110 Or x + y=10
and (10x + y)-10 = 5(x + y) + 4
10x + y – 10 = 5x + 5y+4
10x – 5x + y – 5y = 4 +10
5x – 4y = 14 ….. (2)
From (1) and (2)
(x + y = 10 ) × 4 Consider x + y = 10
6 + y = 10
y = 10 – 6 = 4
y = 4
∴ The two digit number = 10x + y
= 10(6)+4
= 60 + 4
= 64

3x2 + 6x+5- 194 = 0
3X2 + 6x -189 = 0
Divide by 3
x2 + 2x – 63 = 0
x2 + 9x – 7x – 63 = 0
x(x + 9) – 7( x + 9)=0
