Solution:

(b) We have, A . (adj A) = 10 . l

We know that A(adj A) = |A| . l

∴ |A| = 10

Also, we know that |adj A| = |A|^{n-1}

∴ |adj A| = (10)² = 100 [∵ n = 3]

(b) x = 1

(c) x = 2

⇒ (x, y, z) = (3, -2, 2)

and (a, b, c) = (1, -3, -1)

Solution:

(a) The required line is parallel to the line

∴ Direction ratios of this line are 3, – 5 and 6 also the required line passes through the point (-2, 4, -5).

∴ The cartesian equation of the required line is given by

\(\frac{x+2}{3}=\frac{y-4)}{-5}=\frac{z+5}{6}\)

Question 14.

The solution of differential equation \(\frac{dy}{dx}+\frac{y}{x}\) = sin x is

(a) x(y + cos x) = sin x + C

(b) x(y – cos x) = sin x + C

(c) xy cos x = sin x + C

(d) x(y + cos x) = cos x + C

Solution:

(a) Given differential equation is

\(\frac{dy}{dx}+y\frac{1}{x}\) = sin x

which is a linear differential equation.

Here, P(x) = \(\frac{1}{x}\) and Q(x) = sin x x

∴ IF = e^{∫\(\frac{1}{x}\)dx} = e^{log x} = x

The general solution is

y.x = ∫(x. sin x)dx + C

⇒ xy = -x cos x + sin x + C [using integration by parts]⇒ x(y + cos x) = sin x + C

Question 15.

(a) f is strictly increasing on R.

(b) f is decreasing on R.

(c) f is neither increasing nor decreasing on R.

(d) f is strictly decreasing on R.

Solution:

(a) We have, f(x) = x³ – 3x² + 4x, where x ∈ R

f'(x) = 3x² – 6x + 4= 3(x² -2x + 1) + 1

= 3(x – 1)² + 1 > 0 ∀ x ∈ R

Therefore, the function f is strictly increasing on R.

Question 16.

(a) symmetric matrix

(b) skew-symmetric matrix

(c) null matrix

(d) None of the above

Solution:

(b) \(\frac{8}{3}\)(4 – √2) sq units

(c) 3(4 – √2) sq units

(b) \(\frac{8}{3}\)(4 – √2) sq units

(c) 3(4 – √2) sq units

(d) \(\frac{14}{3}\) sq units

Solution:

(b) The given curve x² = 4y is a parabola which is symmetrical about Y-axis (since, it contains even power of x only) and passes through the origin.

The area of the region bounded by the curve x² = Ay, y = 2 and y = 4 and the Y-axis is shown in the figure.

Assertion-Reason Based Questions

In the following questions, a statement of Assertion (A) is followed by a statement of Reason (R). Choose the correct answer out of the following choices.

(a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A

(b) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A

(c) A is true but R is false

(d) A is false but R is true

Question 19.

Reason (R) If the matrices A and B are of same order, say mxn, satisfy the commutative law, then A + B = B + A.

Solution:

Hence, both Assertion and Reason are true but Reason is not the correct explanation

Question 20.

Let R be any relation in the set A of human beings in a town at a particular time.

Assertion (A) If R = {(x, y): x is wife of y}, then R is reflexive.

Reason (R) If R = {(x, y): x is father of y}, then R is neither reflexive nor symmetric nor transitive.

Solution:

(d) Assertion Here R is not reflexive, as x cannot be wife of x

Here, Assertion is false.

Reason Here, R is not reflexive, as x cannot be father of x, for any x. R is not symmetric as if x is father of y, then y cannot be father of x. R is not transitive as if x is father of y and y is father of z, then x is grandfather (not father) of z.

Hence, Reason is true.

Section B

(This section comprises of very short answer type questions (VSA) of 2 marks each)

Question 21.

Evaluate \(\int_{-\pi}^{\pi}\) (1 -x²)sin x cos² xdx.

Or

Evaluate \(\int_{-1}^2\frac{|x|}{x}\)dx.

Solution:

Let l = \(\int_{-\pi}^{\pi}\)(1 – x²)sin x cos²x dx

Again, let/(x) = (1 – x²)sin x cos²x

∴ f(-x) = [1 – (-x)²]sin (-x)cos²(-x)

= (1 – x²)(-sin x)cos²x

= -(1 – x²) sin x cos² x = -f(x)

∴ f(x) is odd function

∴ l = 0 [∵ \(\int_{-\pi}^{\pi}\)f(x)dx = 0, if /(x)is an odd function]

Question 22.

Solve the differential equation cos(\(\frac{dy}{dx}\)) = a, (a ∈ R).

Solution:

Given equation is cos (\(\frac{dy}{dx}\)) = a

which can be rewritten as \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = cos^{-1} a

⇒ dy = cos^{-1} a dx

⇒ ∫dy = ∫(cos^{-1} a)dx ⇒ y = x(cos^{-1} a) + C

which is the required solution.

Question 23.

Check the injectivity of the function f : R → R given by f(x) = x³.

Or

Show that the function f : R → R, given by f(x) = cos x, ∀ x ∈ R is neither one-one nor onto.

Solution:

Let x_{1}, x_{2} ∈ R, such that f(x_{1}) = f(x_{2})

Hence, f is one-one i.e. f is injective.

Or

We have a function f : R → R, defined by

f(x) = cos x

∴ f(0) = cos 0 = 1 and f(2π) = cos 2π = 1

So, f is not one-one.

Also, range of f = [-1, 1] ≠ R

Hence, f is not onto.

Question 24.

Find the value of cos^{-1} (\(\frac{1}{2}\)) + 2 sin^{-1} (\(\frac{1}{2}\)).

Solution:

Question 25.

Find the area of the triangle whose vertices are (-2, -3), (3, 2) and (-1, -8).

Solution:

The area of triangle with vertices (x_{1}, y_{1}), (x_{2}, y_{2}) and (x_{3}, y_{3}) is given by

Since, area is always positive, so we neglect the negative sign.

Hence, the area of triangle is 15 sq units.

Section C

This section comprises of short answer type questions (SA) of 3 marks each

Question 26.

Sketch the graph of y = |x + 3| and evaluate the area under the curve y = |x + 3| above X-axis and between x = -6 to x = 0.

Solution:

First, we sketch the graph of y = |x + 3|

So, we have y = x + 3 for x ≥ -3 and y = -x – 3 for x < -3.

The sketch of y = | x + 3| is shown below

Here, y = x + 3 is the straight line which cuts X and Y-axes at (- 3, 0) and (0, 3), respectively.

Thus, y = x + 3 for x ≥ -3 represents the part of line which lies on the right side of x = – 3.

Similarly, y = -x – 3, x < -3 represents the part of line y = -x – 3, which lies on left side of x = – 3.

Clearly, required area

= Area of region ABPA + Area of region PCOP

Question 27.

Examine the continuity of

If x^{y} = e^{x-y}, then prove that \(\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{logx}{(1+log x)^2}\)

Solution:

Thus, LHL = RHL = f(2)

∴ f(x) is continuous at x = 2.

Question 28.

If cos^{-1} x + cos^{-1} y + cos^{-1} z = π, then peove that x² + y² + z² + 2xyz = 1

Or

Find the value of x² + y² + z² + 2xyz, if sin^{-1} x + sin^{-1} y + sin^{-1} z = \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)

Solution:

Let cos^{-1} x = α, cos^{-1} y = β and cos^{-1} z = γ

⇒ cos α = x, cos β = y and cos γ = z

Since, α + β + γ = π

α + β = π – γ

Now, cos (α + β) = cos (π – γ)

⇒ cosα cosβ – sinα sinβ = -cos γ

On squaring on both sides, we get

⇒ (1 – x²)(1 – y²) = (xy+z)²

⇒ 1 – x² – y² + x²y² = x²y² + z² + 2 xyz

⇒ x² + y² + z² + 2xyz = 1

Question 29.

If A (3, 5, -4), 5 (-1, 1, 2)andC(-5, -5, -2) are the vertices of a ∆ABC, then find the direction cosines of AB, AC and BC.

Or

Find the equation of the line passing through the point (1, 2, -4) and perpendicular to the two lines

Solution:

Let the vertices of the triangle be A(3, 5, -4), S(-1, 1, 2) and C(-5, -5, -2), respectively

The direction ratios of side 46 are (-1 -3, 1 – 5, 2-(-4))

Therefore, the direction cosines of AC are

Hence, the required equation of line is

Question 30.

Find the value of a, if the function f(x)

continuous at x = 2.

Solution:

and f(2) = a

From Eq. (i), we have

3 = 3 = a ⇒ a = 3

Question 31.

which is the required solution.

Question 33.

Solve the LPP

Objective function Z = 3x + 3.5y (maximise), subject to constraints are

x + 2y ≥ 240

3x + 1.5y ≥ 270

1.5x + 2y ≤ 310

x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Or

Solve the following LPP by graphical method minimise Z = 20x + 10y Subject to constraints are

x + 2 y ≤ 40,

3x + y ≥ 30

4x + 3y ≥ 60

and x, y ≥ 0

Solution:

Our problem is to maximise Z = 3x + 3.5 y

Subject to the constraints x + 2y ≥ 240

3x + 1.5y ≥ 270

1.5x + 2y ≤ 310 and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Consider the above inequality as equation, we get

x + 2y =240 ….(i)

3x + 1.5y =270 …(ii)

1.5x + 2y = 310 …(iii)

and x = 0, y = 0 ….(iv)

Table for the line x + 2y = 240 is

So, line x + 2y = 240 passes through the points (0, 120) and (240, 0).

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality x + 2y ≥ 240, we get

0 + 2 x 0 ≥ 240

⇒ 0 ≥ 240 (false)

So, the half plane is away from the origin. Table for the line 3x + 1.5y = 270

So, line 3x + 1.5y = 270 passes through the points (0, 180) and (90, 0).

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality 3x + 1,5y ≥ 270, we get

3 × 0 + 1.5 × 0 ≥ 270

⇒ 0 ≥ 270 (false)

So, the half plane is away from the origin.

Table for the line 1.5x + 2y = 310 is

So, line 1.5x + 2y = 310 passes through the points (0, 155) and (\(\frac{620}{3}\), 0).

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality 1.5x + 2y ≤ 310, we get

1.5 × 0 + 2 × 0 ≤ 310 ⇒ 0 ≤ 310 (true)

So, the half plane is towards the origin.

The intersection point of lines (ii) and (iii) is B(20, 140), of lines (iii) and (i) is A(140, 50), of lines (i) and (ii) is C(40, 100). Since, x, y ≥ 0,

So, the feasible region lies in the first quadrant.

On plotting the graph, we get the feasible region CABC, whose corner points are C(40,100),

A (140, 50) and 6(20, 140).

Now, the values of Z at these points are as follows

Corner points | Z = 3x + 3.5y |

4(140, 50) | Z = 3 × 140 + 3.5 × 50 = 595 (Maximum) |

B(20, 140) | Z = 3 × 20 + 3.5 × 140= 550 |

C(40, 100) | Z = 3 × 40 + 3.5 × 100 = 470 |

The maximum value of Z is 595 and it is occur at A(140, 50).

Or

Converting the given inequations into equations, we obtain the following equations

x + 2y = 40, 3x + y = 30, 4x + 3y = 60, x = 0 and y = 0

Region represented by x + 2y ≤ 40 The line x + 2y = 40 meets the coordinate axes at A_{1}(40, 0) and B_{1}(0, 20) respectively. Join these points to obtain the line x + 2y = 40.

Clearly, (0, 0) satisfies the inequation x + 2y ≤ 40.

So, the region in XY-plane that contains the origin represents the solution set of this inequation.

Region represented by 3x + y ≥ 30: The line 3x + y = 30 meets X and Y-axes at A_{2}(10, 0) and B_{2}(0, 30) respectively. Join these points to obtain this line. We find that the point O(0, 0) does not satisfy the inequation 3x + y > 30. So, that region in xy-plane which does not contain the origin is the solution set of this inequation.

Region represented by 4x + 3y ≥ 60 The line 4x + 3y = 60 meets X and Y-axes at A_{3}(15, 0) and B_{1}(0, 20) respectively. Join these points to obtain the line 4x + 3y = 60.

We observe that the point 0 (0, 0) does not satisfy the inequation 4x+ 3y ≥ 60. So, the region not containing the origin in XY-plane represents the solution set of this inequation.

Region represented by x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 Clearly, the region represented by the non-negativity restrictions x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0 is the first quadrant in XY-plane.

The shaded region A_{3 }A_{1} QP in figure represents the common region of the regions represented by the above inequations. This region expresents the feasible region of the given LPP.

The coordinates of the corner points of the shaded feasible region are A_{3}(15, 0), A_{1}(40, 0), Q(4, 18) and P(6, 12). These points have been obtained by solving the equations of the corresponding intersecting lines, simultaneously.

The values of the objective function at these points are given in the following table

Corner points | Value of the objective function Z =20x + 10y |

A_{3}(15, 0) |
Z = 20 × 15 + 10 × 0 = 300 |

A_{1}(40, 0) |
Z = 20 × 40 + 10 × 0 = 800 |

Q(4, 18) | Z = 20 × 4 + 10 × 18 = 260 |

P(6, 12) | Z = 20 × 6 + 10 × 12 = 240 |

Out of these values of Z, the minimum value is 240 which is attained at point P (6,12). Hence, x = 6, y = 12 is the optimal solution of the given LPP and the optimal value of Z is 240.

On the basis of above information, answer the following questions

(i) Show that f(x) = x² sin x is an odd function.

Solution:

(i) We have, f(x) = x² sin x

⇒ f(-x) = (-x)² sin (-x) = -x² sin x = -f(x)

∴ f(x) is odd function.

Let E_{1} E_{2}, E_{3} and A be the events defined as follows

E_{1} = You guess the answer

E_{2} = You copies the answer

E_{3} = You knows the answer

A = You answers correctly

Clearly, P(E_{1}) = \(\frac{1}{3}\) and P(E_{2}) = \(\frac{1}{6}\)

(i) Since, E_{1} E_{2} and E_{3} are mutually exclusive and exhaustive events.
