21. Find five rational numbers between 1 and 2.

Answer : Multiply and divide the both numbers by 6.

1 × 6/6, 2 × 6/6

6/6, 12/6

So, the five rational numbers between 1 and 2 are 7/6, 8/6, 9/6, 10/6, 11/6.

22. Simplify : (3 + √3)(3 – √3)

Answer : Using identity, (a + b)(a – b) = a^{2} – b^{2}

= (3 + √3)(3 – √3)

= (3)^{2} – (√3)^{2}

= 9 – 3

= 6

OR

Simplify : (32)^{⅕}

Answer : (32)^{⅕} = (2^{5})^{⅕} = 2^{5×⅕} = 2

23. Rationalise the denominator of 1/√7–2.

Answer : Divide and multiply by √7+2

= (1/√7–2) × (√7+2/√7+2)

= (√7+2)/(√7^{2}–2^{2})

= (√7+2)/(7–4)

= (√7+2)/3

24. Evaluate 103 × 107.

Answer : 103 × 107 = (100 + 3)(100 + 7)

Using identity, (x + a)(x + b) = x^{2} + (a + b)x + ab

= (100)^{2} + (3 + 7)100 + 3×7

= 10000 + 1000 + 21

= 11021

25. Find the value of k, if x – 1 is a factor of P(x) = 2x^{2} + kx + √2.

Answer : Here x – 1 = 0, so x = 1

Put x = 1 in P(x) = 2x^{2} + kx + √2

2(1)^{2} + k(1) + √2 = 0

2 + k + √2 = 0

k = –(2+√2)

OR

Use the factor theorem factorize of x^{2} – 5x + 6.

Answer : x^{2} – 5x + 6 = x^{2} – 3x – 2x + 6

= (x – 3)(x – 2)

Section – C (3 Marks)

26. Factorize : 2x^{2} + 7x + 3

Answer : 2x^{2} + 7x + 3 = 2x^{2} + 6x + x + 3

= 2x(x + 3) + 1(x + 3)

= (x + 3)(2x + 1)

27. A hemispherical bowl has a radius of 3 cm. What would be the volume of water it would contain.

Find the total surface area of a cone, if its slant height is 21 m and diameter of its base is 24 m.

Answer : Diameter (d) = 24 m, Radius (r) = d/2 = 24/2 = 12 m

Total surface area of cone (TSA) = πr² + πrl = πr(r + l)

= 22/7 × 12 (12 + 21)

= 22/7 × 12 × 33

= 8712/7

= 1244.57 m^{2}

28. Factorize : 64x^{3} – 343y^{3}

Answer : Using identity, a^{3} – b^{3} = (a – b)(a^{2} + ab – b^{2})

64x^{3} – 343y^{3} = (4x)^{3} – (7y)^{3}

= (4x – 7y)[(4x)^{2} + (4x)(7y) + (7y)^{2}]

= (4x – 7y)(16x^{2} + 28xy + 49y^{2})

29. Find three different solutions of the equation 2x + y = 7.

Answer : y = 7 – 2x

Taking x = 0 then y = 7 – 2(0) = 7

Taking x = 1 then y = 7 – 2(1) = 5

Taking x = 2 then y = 7 – 2(2) = 3

Hence (0, 7), (1, 5) and (2, 3) are three solutions of the given equation.

30. Find the value of k, if x = 2 y = 1 is a solution of the equation 2x + 3y = k.

Answer : Here 2x + 3y = k

2(2) + 3(1) = k

4 + 3 = k

k = 7

31. Factorize : 8x^{3} + y^{3} + 27z^{3} – 18xyz.

Answer : Using identity, a^{3} + b^{3} + c^{3} – 3abc = (a + b + c)(a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} – ab – bc – ca)

8x^{3} + y^{3} + 27z^{3} – 18xyz

= (2x)^{3} + (y)^{3} + (3z)^{3} – 3(2x)(y)(3z)

= (2x + y + 3z)[(2x)^{2} + (y)^{2} + (3z)^{2} – (2x)(y) – (y)(3z) – (3z)(2x)]

= (2x + y + 3z)(4x^{2} + y^{2} + 9z^{2} – 2xy – 3yz – 6zx)

OR

Using suitable identity, find the value of (999)^{3}.

Answer : (999)^{3} = (1000 – 1)^{3}

Using identity, (a – b)^{3} = a^{3} – b^{3} – 3ab(a – b)

= (1000)^{3} – (1)^{3} – 3(1000)(1)(1000 – 1)

= 1000000000 – 1 – 3000(999)

= 1000000000 – 1 – 299700

= 1000000000 – 299701

= 997002999

Section – D (5 Marks)

32. In fig. PQ and RS lines are intersect at point O. If ∠POR : ∠ROQ = 5 : 7, then find the all angles.

Answer : Here ∠POR = 5x, ∠ROQ = 7x

∠POR + ∠ROQ = 180° (Linear Pair)

5x +7x = 180°

12x = 180°

x = 180°/12 = 15°

∠POR = 5x = 5 × 15 = 75°

∠ROQ = 7x = 7 × 15 = 105°

∠POR = ∠QOS = 75° (V.O.A)

∠ROQ = ∠POS = 105° (V.O.A)

33. If a point C lies between two points A and B such that AC = BC, then prove that AC = ½AB. Explain by drawing the figure.

Answer : Given AC = BC

2AC = AB

AC = ½AB

Hence Proved.

OR

In fig. lines XY and MN intersect at O. If ∠POY = 90° and a : b = 2 : 3, find c.

Answer : Here a = 2x, b = 3x

a + b + ∠POY = 180° (Linear Pair)

2x + 3x + 90° = 180°

5x + 90° = 180°

5x = 180° – 90° = 90°

x = 90°/5 = 18°

a = 2x = 2 × 18° = 36°

b = 3x = 3 × 18° = 54°

b + c = 180° (Linear Pair)

54° + c = 180°

c = 180° – 54° = 126°

34. Find the area of triangle whose sides are 40 m, 24 m and 32 m.

Answer : Here a = 40m, b = 24m, c = 32m

Semi perimeter (s) = (a+b+c)/2 = (40+24+32) = 96/2 = 48 m

Using Heron’s formula, area of triangle is

A = √s(s–a)(s–b)(s–c)

= √48(48–40)(48–24)(48–32)

= √48(8)(24)(16)

= √147456

= 384 m^{2}

OR

Find the volume of a right circular cone whose radius 6 cm and height is 7 cm.

Answer : Volume of cone = ⅓πr^{2}h

= 1/3 × 22/7 × (6)^{2} × 7

= 264 cm^{3 }

35. Show that diagonal of a rhombus perpendicular to each other.

Answer :

Given : ABCD is a rhombus; AC and BD intersect at E.

To prove : AC ⊥ BD

Proof : In ΔABE and ΔADE

AB = AD (sides of a rhombus)

BE = DE (diagonals bisect each other)

AE = AE (common)

∆ABE ≅ ∆ADE (by SSS)

∠AEB = ∠AED (CPCT)

∠AEB + ∠AED = 180° (Linear pair)

∠AEB + ∠AEB = 180° (∠AEB = ∠AED)

2∠AEB = 180°

∠AEB = 180°/2 = 90°

∠AEB = ∠AED = 90°

Hence, AC and BD are perpendicular to each other.

= √132(10)(110)(12)

= 1320 m^{2}

OR
