(i) symmetric

(ii) transitive.

Show that the function f defined by f(x) = (x – 1)e^{x} + 1 is an increasing function for all x > 0.

Solution:

We havef(x) (x – 1) e^{x} + 1

Differentiating both sides w,r.t x, we have

f’(x) = (x – 1)e^{x} + e^{x}.1

= e^{x}(x – 1 + 1) = xe^{x}

When x > 0, x > 0

e^{x} > 0 […e^{x} > 0 for all x ∈ R

then xe^{x} > 0

f’(x) > 0 ……[for all x > 0

∴ f(x) is an increasing function for all x > 0.

Solution:

R = {(x, y): x, y ∈ Z, and (x – y) is divisible by 5 .. [Given

Reflexive:

R is reflexive, for x ∈ Z

x – x = 0, which is divisible by 5

(x, x) ∈ R ∴ R is reflexive

Symmetric:

R is symmetric, (x, y) ∈ R, where x, y ∈ Z

x – y is divisible by 5

Let (x – y) = 5λ, where λ ∈ Z

y – x = -5λ

∴ y – x is divisible by 5

(y, x) ∈ R ;. R is symmetric

Transitive:

R is transitive, (x, y) ∈ R where x, y ∈ Z

x – y is divisible by 5

x – y = 5λ, where λ ∈ Z ………. (i)

For (y, z) ∈ R, where y, z ∈ Z

y – z is divisbie by 5

y – z = 5β, where β ∈ Z ……(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii),

(x – y) + (y – z) = 5λ + 5

x – z = 5(λ + 13)

(x – z) is divisible by 5

(x, y) ∈ R, (y, z) e R

∴ (x, z) ∈ R where x, y, z ∈ Z

∴ R is transitive

Question 31.

A manufacturer has three machines I, II and III installed in his factory. Machine I and II are capable of being operated for almost 12 hours whereas machine III must be operated for atleast 5 hours a day. He produces only two items M and N each requiring the use of all the three machines.

The number of hours required for producing 1 unit of M and N on three machines are given in the following table:

He makes a profit of ₹600 and ₹400 on one unit of items M and N respectively. How many units of each item should he produce so as to maximize his profit assuming that he can sell all the items that he produced. What will be the maximum profit?

Solution:

Let x and y be the number of items M and N respectively.

Maximise profit, Z = ₹(600x + 400y)

Subjects to the constraints,

x + 2y ≤ 12 ……….(i)

2x + y ≤ 12 ………(ii)

x + 1.25y ≥ 5 or x + \(\frac{5}{4}\)y ≥ 5 …(iii)

x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Checking at Origin (0, 0):

(i) x + 2y ≤ 12 ⇒ 0 + 0 ≤ 12,

(True shading towards origin)

(ii) 2x + y ≤ 12 ⇒ 0 + 0 ≤12

(True shading towards origin)

(iii) x + \(\frac{5}{4}\)y ≥ 5,

⇒ 0 + 0 ≥ 5,

(False shading against opposite to origin.)

∴ The manufacturer has to produce 4 units of each item to get the maximum profit of ₹4,000.

3P(T) + P(T) = 1

4P(T) = 1

P(T) = 1/4

Find the dimensions of the rectangle of perimeter 36 cm which will sweep out a volume as large as possible, when revolved about one of its side. Also, find the maximum volume.

Solution:

Let breadth and length of rectangle be a x cm and y cm.

Given. Perimeter of Rectangle = 36 cm

⇒ 2(x + y) = 36

⇒ x + y = 18

⇒ y = 18 – x ….. (i)

When revolved about one of its length y.

⇒ 36x = 3x^{2}

⇒ 3x^{2} – 36x = 0

⇒ 3(x^{2} – 12x) = 0

⇒ 3x(x – 12) = 0

x = 0 or x = 12

Again, differentiating w.r.t. x we get

At x = 12, volume of the resultant cylinder is the maximum.

So, the dimensions of rectangles are 12 cm and 6 cm, respectively.

∴ Maximum volume of resultant cylinder,

V_{x=12} = π[18.(12)^{2} – (12)^{3}]

= π[12^{2}(18 – 12)]

= π × 144 × 6 = 864πcm^{3}
