(a) log_{e} 3 sq units

(b) log_{e} 6 sq units

(c) log5 sq units

(d) 6 sq units

Solution:

(b) Required area = \(\int_1^6\)y dx = \(\int_1^6\frac{1}{x}\) dx

= [log x]^{6}_{1}

= log_{e} 6 sq units.

(a) \(\frac{6\pi}{5}\)cm²/cm

(b) 3π cm²/cm

(c) 6π cm²/cm

(d) \(\frac{3\pi}{5}\)cm²/cm

Solution:

(c) Area of circle = πr²

i.e. A = πr²

\(\frac{dA}{dr}\) = 2πr

(\(\frac{dA}{dr}\))_{r=3} = 2π(3)

= 6π cm2/cm

Question 3.

possible pair of values of x and y, if x and y are natural numbers.

(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) 3

(d) 4

Solution:

⇒ 3 – xy = 3 – 8 ⇒ xy = 8

⇒ (x, y) = (1, 8), (2, 4), (4, 2), (8, 1)

Question 4.

The value of ∫x² e^{x³}dx is

(a) \(\frac{1}{3}\) e^{x³} + C

(b) \(\frac{1}{3}\) e^{x4} + C

(c) \(\frac{1}{2}\) e^{x³} + C

(d) \(\frac{1}{2}\) e^{x²} + C

Solution:

(a) Let ∫x² e^{x³} dx

Put x³ = t ⇒ 3x²dx = dt

∴ l = \(\frac{1}{3}\)∫e^{t} dt = \(\frac{1}{3}\)e^{t} + C ⇒ l = \(\frac{1}{3}\)e^{x³} + C

Question 5.

If y = 3e^{2x} + 2e^{3x} then the value of y_{2} – 5y_{1} + 6y is

(a) 1

(b) 0

(c) 2

(d) 3

Solution:

(b) We have, y = 3e^{2x} + 2e^{3x}

y_{1} = 6e^{2x} + 6e^{3x}

y_{2} = 12e^{2x} + 18e^{3x}

y_{2} = 6(2e^{2x} + 3e^{3x})

Hence,

y_{2} – 5y_{1} + 6y = 6(2e^{2x} + 3e^{3x}) – 30(e^{2x} + e^{3x}) + 6(3e^{2x} + 2e^{3x})

= 0

Question 6.

(a) zero

(b) 2

(c) not defined

(d) 11

Solution:

(c) It is given that P(A) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) and P(B) = 0

Therefore, P (\(\frac{A}{B}\)) is not defined.

(a) \(\frac{2}{e}\)

(b) \(\frac{3}{e}\)

(c) \(\frac{1}{e}\)

(d) \(\frac{2}{5e}\)

Solution:

(a) We have, y = f(log_{e} x)

∴ \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = f'(log_{e} x).\(\frac{1}{x}\)

Now, on putting x =e, we get

\(\frac{dy}{dx}\)|_{x=e} = f'(log_{e} e).\(\frac{1}{e}\) = \(\frac{1}{e}\)f’(1) [∵ log_{e}e = 1]= \(\frac{2}{e}\) [∵ f'(1) = 2]

Question 10.

The particular solution of the differential equation \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = y tan x at y = 1, x = 0 is

(a) y = cos x

(b) y = sec x

(c) y sin x = 6

(d) y = tan x

Solution:

(b) We have, \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = y tan x ⇒ \(\frac{dy}{y}\) = tan x dx

⇒ ∫\(\frac{dy}{y}\) = ∫tan x dx

⇒ log y = log |secx| + C

On putting y = 1 and x = 0 in (i), we get

C = 0

∴ y = sec x

(a) –\(\frac{1}{3}\)

(b) \(\frac{1}{3}\)

(c) 2

Solution:

(a) Given, \(3\hat{i}+2\hat{j}+9\hat{k}\) and \(\hat{i}-2p\hat{j}+3\hat{k}\) are two parallel vectors, so their direction ratios will be proportional.

Question 13.

(a) 1

(b) 2

(a) injective and surjective

(b) injective but not surjective

(c) not injective but surjective

(d) neither injective nor surjective

Solution:

(b) Given, f: N → N defined by f(x) = 2x + 3

Let f(x_{1}) = f(x_{2})

⇒ 2x_{1} + 3 = 2x_{2} + 3

⇒ x_{1} = x_{2}

Hence, f(x) is injective.

Let f(x) = y

⇒ y = 2x + 3

⇒ x = \(\frac{y-3}{3}\)

Let y = 4

i.e. y ∈ N but x ∉ N.

Hence, f(x) is not surjective.

Question 16.

The corner points of the feasible region determined by the following system of linear inequalities 2x + y ≤ 10, x + 3y ≤ 15, x, y ≥ 0 are (0, 0) (5, 0) (3, 4) and (0, 5). Let Z = px + qy, where p, q > 0. Condition on p and q, so that the maximum of Z occurs at both (3, 4) and (0, 5), is

(a) p = q

(b) p = 2q

(c) p = 3q

(d) q = 3p

Solution:

(d) The maximum value of Z is unique.

It is given that the maximum value of Z occurs at two points (3, 4) and (0, 5).

Value of Z at (3, 4) = Value of Z at (0, 5)

⇒ p(3) + g(4) = p(0) + q(5)

⇒ 3p + 4q = 5q

⇒ 3p = q

Question 17.

Suppose there is a relation R between the positive numbers x and y given by x Ry if and only if x ≤ y². Then, which one of the following is correct?

(a) R is reflexive but not symmetric

(b) R is symmetric but not reflexive

(c) R is neither reflexive nor symmetric

(d) None of the above

Solution:

(a) Reflexive Given, xRy ⇒ x is less than y².

∴ xRx ⇒ x is less than x², which is true.

Hence, R is reflexive.

Symmetric xRy is not equivalent to yRx because

1R2 ⇒ 1 is less than 2².

2R1 ⇒ 2 is less than 1².

Thus, it is not symmetric.

Question 18.

(b) \(\frac{3\pi}{5}\)

Solution:

Let l = ∫(x + 1) e^{x} log (xe^{x})dx

On putting, xe^{x} = t ⇒ (e^{x} + xe^{x})dx = df

⇒ (1 + x)e^{x}dx = dt

[using integration by parts]= t.logt – ∫1dt = t.logt – t + C

= xe^{x} log(xe^{x}) – xe^{x} +C [∵ t = xe^{x}]= xe^{x}[log(xe^{x}) – 1] + C

Solution:

Let A denotes the event that atleast one girl will be chosen and B denotes the event that exactly 2 girls will be chosen. Then, to find P(\(\overline{\mathrm{B}}/\overline{\mathrm{A}}\))

Now, P(A) = 1 – P(\(\overline{\mathrm{A}}\)) = 1 – P (no girl is chosen)

On comparing above equations with one point form

of equation of line, which is \(\frac{x-x_1}{a}=\frac{y-y_1}{b}=\frac{z-z_1}{c}\),

We know that the shortest distance between two lines is given by

Show that the function f : R → R defined by f(x) = \(\frac{x}{x^{2}+1}\) ∀ x ∈ R is neither one-one nor onto.

Solution:

Given, f : R → R, defined by

f(x) = \(\frac{x}{x^{2}+1}\) ∀ x ∈ R

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

or (1 – 2k) (1 + 2k) < 0 i.e. k > 1/2 or k < -1/2

So, f is not onto.

Hence, f is neither one-one nor onto.

Question 33.

Solve the following system of equations by matrix method when x ≠ 0, y ≠ 0 and z ≠ 0.

Or

The sum of three numbers is 6. Twice the third number when added to the first number gives 7. On adding the sum of the second and third numbers to thrice the first number, we get 12. Find the numbers, using matrix method.

Solution:

Given, system of equations is

Given equations can be written in matrix form as AX = B

On comparing the corresponding elements, we get

Let the first, second and third numbers be x, y and z, respectively. Then,

x + y + z = 6 …(i)

x + 2z = 7 …(ii)

3x + y+z = 12 …(iii)

∴ A is invertible.

So, the given system has a unique solution, X = A^{-1}B.

The minors of the elements of |A| are

M_{11} = -2, M_{12} = -5, M_{13} = 1,

M_{21} = 0, M_{22} = -2, M_{23} = -2,

M_{31} = 2, M_{32} = 1, M_{33} = -1

The cofactors of the elements of j /4| are

A_{11} = -2, A_{12} = 5, A_{13} = 1,

A_{21} = 0, A_{22} = -2, A_{23} = 2,

A_{31} = 2, A_{32} = -1, A_{33} = -1

Hence, the required numbers are 3, 1 and 2.

Question 34.

are perpendicular to each other. Also, find the equation of a line passing through a point (3, 2, -4) and parallel to line l_{1}.

Or

Solution:

Given equation of lines can be written in standard form as

Direction ratios of these lines are -3, \(\frac{p}{7}\), 2 and –\(\frac{3p}{7}\), 1, -5, respectively.

We know that two lines with direction ratios a_{1}, b_{1}, c_{1} and a_{2}, b_{2}, c_{2} are perpendicular to each other, if

Thus, the value of p is 7.

Also, we know that the equation of a line which passes through the point (x_{1}, y_{1}, z_{1}) with direction ratios a, b and c is given by

Any point P on line (i) is

P(3λ + 8, -16λ – 9, 7λ + 10) …(iii)

and any point G on line (ii) is

Q(3µ + 15, 8µ + 29, -5µ + 5) … (iv)

So, the direction ratios of PQ are

(3µ + 15 – 3λ – 8, 8µ + 29 + 16λ + 9, – 5µ + 5 – 7λ – 10)

i.e. (3µ – 3λ + 7, 8µ + 16λ + 38, -5µ – 7λ – 5)

Now, |PQ| will be the shortest distance between lines (i) and (ii), if PQ is perpendicular to both lines (i) and (ii)

3(3µ – 3λ + 7) – 16(8µ + 16λ + 38) + 7(-5µ – 7λ – 5) = 0 [∵ a_{1}a_{2} + b_{1}b_{2} + c_{1}c_{2} = 0]⇒ 9µ – 9λ + 21 -128µ – 256λ – 608 – 35µ – 49λ – 35 = 0

⇒ -154µ – 314λ – 622 = 0

⇒ 77µ + 157λ + 311 = 0 [dividing by (-2)] …(v)

and 3(3µ – 3λ +7) + 8(8µ + 16λ + 38) -5(-5µ – 7λ – 5) = 0 [∵ a_{1}a_{2} + b_{1}b_{2} + c_{1}c_{2} = 0]⇒ 9µ – 9λ + 21 + 64µ + 128λ + 304 + 25µ + 35λ + 25 = 0

⇒ 98µ + 154λ + 350 = 0

⇒ 7µ + 11λ + 25 = 0 [dividing by 14] …(vi)

On multiplying Eq. (vi) by 11 and then subtracting it from Eq. (v), we get

(77µ + 157λ + 311) – (77µ + 121λ + 275) = 0

⇒ 36λ + 36 = 0 ⇒ λ = -1

On putting the value of λ in Eq. (v), we get

77µ + 157(-1) + 311 = 0

⇒ 77µ – 157 + 311 = 0

⇒ 77µ + 154 = 0

⇒ µ = -2

On putting the values of 3 and (i in Eqs. (iii) and (iv), we get

Coordinates of P = (-3 + 8, 16 – 9, -7 + 10) = (5,7, 3)

and coordinates of Q = (-6 + 15, -16 + 29, 10 + 5)

= (9, 13, 15)

∴ Shortest distance between two lines,

(iii) Given, equation of lines 3x + 2y = 13 …(i)

and 2x – y = 4 …(ii)

The point D is the intersection point of the above two lines.

On multiplying by 2 in Eq. (ii), we get

4y – 2y = 8 …(iii)

On adding Eqs. (i) and (iii), we get

7x = 21 ⇒ x = 3

From Eq. (ii), 2x – 4 = y

⇒ y = 2 × 3 – 4 = 2

Hence, the coordinates of point D are (3, 2).

Or

Value of objective function at all corner points.

Corner points | Value of Z = 15x – 4y |

O(0, 0) | 15(0) – 4(0) = 0 |

A(5, 0) | 15 × 5 – 4 × 0 = 75 |

B(6, \(\frac{1}{2}\)) | 15 × 6 – 4 × \(\frac{1}{2}\)) = 88 (Maximum) |

C(4, 1) | 15 × 4 – 4 × 1 = 56 |

D(3, 2) | 15 × 3 – 4 × 2 = 37 |

E(0, 2) | 15 × 0 – 4 × 2 = -8 (Minimum) |
