Question 4.

In a 100 m race, Ajay runs at the speed of 4 km/h. Ajay gives Brijesh a start of 4 m and still beats him by 15 s. The speed of Brijesh is

(a) 3.89 km/h

(b) 3.54 km/h

(c) 3 km/h

(d) 3.29 km/h

Solution:

(d) Time taken by Ajay to cover 4000 m = 1 h

= 3600 s

∴ Time taken by Ajay to cover 100 m

= (\(\frac{60\times60}{4000}\) × 100)s = 90s

Now, Brijesh covers (100 – 4) m

i.e. 96 m = (90 + 15)s

= 105 s

Question 5.

(a) x = 1, y = 2

(b) x = -1, y = -2

(c) x = 1, y = – 2

(d) x = 1, y = 4

Solution:

(d) By equality of matrices, we have

1 + x = 2

⇒ x = 2 – 1

⇒ x = 1

Again, on comparing both the matrices, we get

y – 1 = 3

⇒ y = 3 + 1

⇒ y = 4

(5, 0) | 3 × 5 – 4 × 0 = 15 (Maximum) |

(6, 5) | 3 × 6 – 4 × 5 = -2 |

(6, 8) | 3 × 6 – 4 × 8 = -14 |

(4, 10) | 3 × 4 – 4 × 10 = -28 |

(0, 8) | 3 × 0 – 4 × 8 = -32 (Minimum) |

Hence, the minimum of Z occurs at (0, 8) and its minimum value is (-32).

(a) 28

(b) 16

(c) 45

(d) 25

Solution:

(c) Given, mean (np) =15

and variance np(1 – p) = 10

∴ 1 – p = \(\frac{10}{15}=\frac{2}{3}\)

⇒ p = \(\frac{1}{3}\)

∴ n = 15 × 3 = 45

Question 13.

The assumed hypothesis which is tested for rejection considering it to be true is called

(a) true hypothesis

(b) alternative hypothesis

(c) null hypothesis

(d) simple hypothesis

(a) 8x + y + 9 = 0

(b) 8x – y + 9 = 0

(c) 8x + y – 9 = 0

(d) 8x – y – 9 = 0

Solution:

(a) Given, equation of curve is

y = x² – 4x – 5

When x = -2, then y = (-2)² – 4(-2) – 5

= 4 + 8 – 5 = 7

So, the required point is (-2, 7).

On differentiating Eq. (i), w.r.t. x, we get

\(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = 2x – 4

∴ Slope of tangent line at point (-2, 7) is

Solution:

Question 22.

The cost and revenue function of a product are given by C(x) = 20x + 4000 and R(x) = 60 x + 2000 respectively, where x is the number of items produced and sold. Then, find the number of items must be sold to realise some profit.

Solution:

To earn some profit, we must have

R(x) > C(x)

⇒ 60x + 2000 > 20x + 4000

Subtracting 20x from both sides,

40x + 2000 > 4000

Subtracting 2000 from both sides,

40x > 2000

Dividing both sides by 40,

x > \(\frac{2000}{40}\) ⇒ x > 50

Hence, atleast 50 items must be sold to realise some profit.

Subject to the constraints are

3x + 2y ≤ 3600, x + 4y ≤ 1800

and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

From the shaded feasible region it is clear that the coordinates of corner points are

(0, 0), (1200, 0), (1080, 180) and (0, 450).

On solving x + 4y = 1800 and 3x + 2y = 3600, we get

x = 1080 and y = 180

Maximise Z = x + y,

Subject to the constraints are

x + 4y ≤ 8,2x + 3y ≤ 12,3x + y ≤ 9andx, y ≥ 0

On solving x + 4y = 8 and 3x + y = 9, we get

x = \(\frac{28}{11}\) and y = \(\frac{15}{11}\)

From the feasible region, it is clear that coordinates of corner points are (0, 0), (3, 0), (\(\frac{28}{11},\frac{15}{11}\)) and (0, 2).

Given, EV = ₹ 300000; BV = ₹ 150000

and CAGR = 8.5%

We know that

∴ The period for which he has invested the amount is 8 yr.

Question 30.

Find the number of pairs of consecutive even positive integers, both of which are larger than 8, such that their sum is less than 25, is?

Solution:

Let x be the smaller of two consecutive even positive integers.

Then, the other even integer is x + 2.

Given, x > 8 and x + x + 2 < 25

⇒ x > 8 and x + x + 2 < 25

⇒ x > 8 and 2x + 2 < 25

⇒ x > 8 and 2x < 23

⇒ x > 8 and x < \(\frac{23}{2}\)

Hence, there exists only one pair of even integer (10, 12).

Question 31.

From a lot of 15 bulbs which include 5 defectives, a sample of 2 bulbs is drawn at random (without replacement). Find the probability distribution of the number of defective bulbs.

Solution:

It is given that out of 15 bulbs, 5 are defective.

∴ Number of non-defective bulbs = 15 – 5 = 10

Let X be the random variable which denotes the defective bulbs. So, X may take values 0,1,2

P(X = 0) = P (No defective bulb)

Section D

All questions are compulsory. In case of internal choice, attempt any one questions only

Question 32.

Find the positive numbers x and y such that x + y = 60 and xy³ is maximum.

Or

An j Apache helicopter of enemy is flying along the curve given by y = x² + 7. A soldier placed at (3, 7) wants to shoot down the helicopter. When it is nearest to him. Find the nearest distance.

Solution:

Let x + y = 60 and P = xy³

Then, P =(60 – y)(y³) [∵ x = 60 – y]On differentiating w.r.t. x, we get

\(\frac{dP}{dy}\) = 3y²(60 – y) – y³ = 180y² – 3y³ – y³

= 180y² – 4y³ = 4y²(45 – y)

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

\(\frac{d^2P}{dy^2}\) = 360y -12y² = 12y (30 – y) dy

For maxima and minima, put \(\frac{dP}{dy}\) = 0

⇒ 4y²(45-y) = 0

y = 0 or y = 45

Now, (\(\frac{d^2P}{dy^2}\))_{y=45} = 12 × 45(30 – 45) = -8100 < 0

So, y = 45isapoint of maximum and another number is 60 – 45 = 15

Hence, number are 45 and 15.

Or

Let P(h, k) be any point on the curve y = x² + 7 and Q(3, 7) be the given point.

∴ Distance between PQ is

Let PQ² = f(h), then PQ is minimum or maximum.

According to f(h) is maximum or minimum

f(h) = h² – 6h + 9 + h^{4}

f'(h) = 2h – 6 + 4h³

f”(h) = 2 + 12h²

For maxima or minima put f'(h) = 0

∴ 4h³ + 2h – 6 = 0

(h – 1)(4h² + 4h + 6) = 0

2(h -1) (2h² + 2h + 3) = 0

h = 1, 2h² + 2h + 3 ≠ 0

Now, f”(1) = 2 + 12 > 0 So, h = 1 is a point of local minima.

PQ = \(\sqrt{(1-3)^2+(1)^2}=\sqrt{4+1}\) = √5

∴ The nearest distance is √5 units.

Question 33.

A manufacturer produces two models of bikes-model Y and model Y. Model Y takes a 6 man-hours to make per unit, while model Y takes 10 man hours per unit. There is a total of 450 man-hour available per week. Handling and marketing costs are ₹ 2000 and ₹ 1000 per unit for models X and Y, respectively. The total funds available for these purposes are ₹ 80000 per week. Profits per unit for models X and Y are ₹ 1000 and ₹ 500, respectively. Find the maximum profit.

Or

Find the minimum value of Z for the problem minimise Z = 400x + 200 y, subject to constraints

5x + 2y ≥ 30, 2x + y ≤ 15, x ≤ y and x, y ≥ 0

Solution:

Let the manufacturer produces x number of models X and y number of model Y bikes.

Model X takes a 6 man-hours to make per unit and model Y takes a 10 man-hours to make per unit.

There is total of 450 man-hour available per week.

∴ 6x + 10y < 450

⇒ 3x + 5y < 225 … (i)

For models X and X handling and marketing costs are ₹ 2000 and ₹ 1000, respectively, total funds available for these purposes are ₹ 80000 per week.

∴ 2000x + 1000y < 80000

⇒ 2x + y < 80 …(ii)

Also, x > 0, y > 0

Since, the profits per unit for models X and Y are ₹ 1000 and ₹ 500, respectively.

∴ Required LPP is Maximise

Z = 1000x + 500y

Subject to constraints,

3x + 5y ≤ 225, 2x + y ≤ 80, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

On solving 3x + 5y = 225 and 2x + y = 80, we get

x = 25 and y = 30

From the shaded feasible region, it is clear that coordinates of corner points are (0, 0), (40, 0), (25, 30) and (0, 45).

The maximum profit is ₹ 40000.

Or

We have, minimise Z = 400x + 200y,

Subject to the constraints are

5x + 2y ≥ 30, 2x + y ≤ 15, x ≤ y, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0.

On solving x – y = 0 and 5x + 2y = 30, we get

On solving x – y = 0 and 2x + y = 15, we get

x = 5, y = 5

So, from the shaded feasible region it is clear that coordinates of corner points are (0, 15), (5, 5) and

Hence, the minimum cost is ₹ 2571.43.

Question 34.

Question 37.

EMI is a part of equally divided monthly outgoes to clear off an outstanding loan within a stipulated time frame. For a fixed interest rate loan, the EMI remain fixed for the entire tenure of the loan, provided there is no default or part payment in between. The EMI is used off both the principal and interest components of an outstanding loan. The first EMI has the highest interest component and the lowest principal component.

Rajesh purchased a house from a company for ₹2500000 and made a down payment of ₹500000. Fie repays the balance in 25 yr by monthly installments at the rate of 9% per annum compounded monthly, (given (1.0075 )^{-300} = 0.1062)

(i) Find the number of payment.

(ii) Find the rate of interest per month.

(iii) What are the monthly payment.

Or

What is the total interest payment.

Solution:

(i) Here, time = 25 yr

∴ Total number of payment = 25 × 12 = 300

(ii) R = 9% per annum.

Rate of interest per month = \(\frac{9}{1200}\) = 0.0075

(iii) Cost of house = ₹ 2500000

Down payment = ₹ 500000

∴ Principal amount = ₹ (2500000 – 500000)

= ₹ 2000000,

n = 25 × 12 = 300

and i = \(\frac{9}{1200}\) = 0.0075

Hence, total interest is ₹ 3034681.
