f(x) = (w o v o u)(x) of the three functions u, v and w, whereu(x) = x², v(t) = cost and w(s) = sin s.

Put f =u(x) = x2 and s = v(t) = cosf. Observe that \(\frac{dw}{ds}\) = cos s, \(\frac{ds}{dt}\) = -sin t and \(\frac{dt}{dx}\) = 2x exist for all realx.

Hence, by a generalisation of chain rule, we have

(a) We have, f(x) = cos^{-1}(2x – 1)

∴ -1 ≤ 2x – 1 ≤ 1

⇒ 0 ≤ 2x ≤ 2 ⇒ 0 ≤ x ≤ 1

(a) -78 units/s

(b) -72 units/s

(c) -36 units/s

(d) -18 units/s

Solution:

(b) Slope of curve = \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = 5 – 6x²

⇒ \(\frac{d}{dt}\)(\(\frac{dy}{dx}\)) = – 12x.\(\frac{dx}{dt}\)

= – 12 . (3) . (2) = – 72 units/s

Thus, slope of curve is decreasing at the rate of 72 units/s, when x is increasing at the rate of 2 units/s.

\(\frac{x-4}{3}=\frac{y-(-1)}{2}=\frac{z-3}{-4}\)

The line passes through the point (4, -1, 3) and direction ratios of the line are 3, 2, -4.

∴ Required vector equation of the given line is

\(\vec{r}=(4\hat{i}-\hat{j}+3\hat{k})+\lambda(3\hat{i}+2\hat{j}-4\hat{k})\)

Question 17.

Since, this differential equation is not a polynomial in terms of its derivatives.

∴ Its degree is not defined.

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.

Assertion (A) The f : R → R given by f(x) = [x] + x is one-one onto.

Reason (R) A function is said to be one-one and onto, if each element has unique image and range of f(x) is equal to codomain of f(x).

Solution:

(d) Assertion Since, greatest integer [x] gives only integer value.

But f(x) = [x]+ x gives all real values and there is no repeated value of f(x) for any value of x.

∴ f(x) is one-one.

f(x) = [x] + x = [x] + [x] + 2xy

f(x) = 2[x] + {x} [∵ x = [x] + 2xy]∴ Range is (0, 1) ∪ [2, 3] ∪ [4, 5], …

∴ f(x) is not onto.

Hence, Assertion is false but Reason is true.

Question 20.

Assertion (A) cosec^{-1} is define as a function whose domain is R -(-1, 1) and range could be any

Solution:

(a) If we restrict the domain of cosec function to

Section B

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

Question 21.

Find the value of ∫sin x.log cos x dx.

Or

Find ∫\(\frac{3-5sin x}{cos^2x}\)dx.

Solution:

∫sin x.log cos x dx

Put cos x = f ⇒ -sin x dx = dt

∴ -∫log t dt ⇒ -∫(log t).1 df

Question 22.

Show that the function f(x) = 4x³ – 18x² + 27x – 7 is always increasing on R.

Solution:

We have, f(x) = 4x³ – 18x² + 27x – 7

On differentiating both sides w.r.t. x, we get

f'(x) = 12x² – 36x + 27

⇒ f'(x) = 3(4x² – 12x + 9)

⇒ f'(x) = 3(2x – 3)²

⇒ f'(x) ≥ 0

⇒ For any x ∈ R, (2x – 3)² ≥ 0

Since, a perfect square number cannot be negative.

∴ Given, function f(x).is an increasing function on R.

Question 23.

Check if the relation R in the set A of real numbers defined as R = {(a, b): a < b} is

(i) symmetric

(ii) transitive.

Or

Check whether the relation R defined on

the set A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} as

R = {(a, b): b = a + 1} is reflexive, symmetric or transitive.

Solution:

Given, A = Set of real numbers and R – {(a, b):a < b}

(i) Symmetric Let (a, b) ∈ R, then a < b but b < a

⇒ (b, a) ∉ R.

e.g. 4< 5 but 5 < 4

So, R is not symmetric.

(ii) Transitive Let (a, b),(b, c) ∈ R, then

(a, b) ∈ R ⇒ a < b …(i)

(b, c) ∈ R ⇒ b < c …(ii)

From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get a < c

⇒ (a, c) ∈ R

So, R is transitive.

Or

The relation R on set A = {1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6} is defined as (a, b) ∈ R iff b = a + 1.

Therefore, R = {(1,2), (2, 3), (3, 4), (4, 5), (5, 6)}

Clearly, (a, a) ∉ R for any a ∈ A. So, R is not reflexive on A.

We observe that (1, 2) ∈ R but (2, 1) ∉ R.

So, R is not symmetric.

We also observe that (1, 2) ∈ R and (2, 3) ∈ R but (1, 3) ∉ ft. So, it is not transitive.

Question 24.

If a line makes angles α, β and γ with the coordinate axes, then prove that

cos 2α +cos2β + cos2γ = -1.

Solution:

We know that a line makes angles a, (5 and y with the coordinate axes, then

cos²α + cos²β + cos²γ = 1

Now, cos2α + cos2β + cos2γ

= 2cos²α – 1 + 2cos²β – 1 + 2cos²γ – 1 [∵ cos2θ = 2cos²θ – 1]= 2(cos²α + cos²β + cos²γ) – 3

= 2(1) – 3 = 2 – 3 = -1

= RHS

Hence proved.

Question 25.

Find the order and degree of the differential equation

Solution:

The given differential equation is

Hence, its order is 2 and degree is 1.

Question 26.

A coin is biased so that the head is three times as likely to occur as tail. If the coin is tossed twice, find the probability distribution of number of tails. Hence, find the mean of the number of tails.

Or

Suppose that 5 men out of 100 and 25 women out of 1000 are good orators. Assuming that there are equal number of men and women, find the probability of choosing a good orator.

Solution:

Let X be the random variable which denotes the

number of tails when a biased coin is tossed twice.

So, X may have values 0, 1 or 2.

Since, the coin is biased in which head is 3 times as likely to occur as a tail.

Or

Let E_{1} be the event that selected person is men and E_{2} be the event that selected person is women, E_{1}, and E_{2} are mutually exclusive and exhaustive event moreover P(E_{1}) = P(E_{2}) = \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Let E be the event that selected person is good orator.

Solution:

Question 28.

If the vertices A, B and C of a ∆ABC are (1, 2, 3), (-1,0,0) and (0, 1, 2) respectively, then find ∠ABC. (∠ABC is the angle

between the vectors \(\vec{BA}\) and \(\vec{BC}\))

Or

If \(\vec{a}=3\hat{i}+2\hat{j}+2\hat{k}\) and \(\vec{b}=\hat{i}+2\hat{j}-2\hat{k}\), then find the unit vector perpendicular to each of the vector a + b and a – b.

Solution:

The given points are A(1,2, 3), B(-1, 0, 0)andC(0,1,2).

Also, it is given that ∠ABC is the angle between the

Question 29.

Solution:

Question 30.

Find the intervals in which the function f(x) = (x – 1)³ (x – 2)² is

(i) increasing.

(ii) decreasing.

Solution:

Given, f(x) = (x – 1)³ (x – 2)²

On differentiating both sides w.r.t. x, we get

Now, we find intervals and check in which interval f(x) is strictly increasing and strictly decreasing.

Interval | f(x) = (x – 1)²(x – 2)(5x – 8) |
Sign of f'(x) |

x < 1 | (+)(-)(-) | +ve |

1 < x < \(\frac{8}{5}\) | (+)(-)(-) | +ve |

\(\frac{8}{5}\) < x < 2 | (+)(-)(+) | -ve |

x > 2 | (+)(+)(+) | +ve |

We know that a function f(x) is said to be an strictly increasing function, if f'(x) > O and strictly decreasing, if f'(x) < 0.

So, the given function f{x) is increasing on the intervals (-∞, 1), (1, \(\frac{8}{5}\)) and (2, ∞) and decreasing on (\(\frac{8}{5}\), 2).

Since, f(x)is a polynomial function, so it is continuous at x = 1, \(\frac{8}{5}\), 2.

Hence, f(x) is

(i) increasing on intervals (-∞, \(\frac{8}{5}\)] and [2, ∞),

(ii) decreasing on interval [\(\frac{8}{5}\), 2].

Question 31.

Determine the area of the region bounded by the curve y² = x and the lines x = 1, x = 4 and the X-axis.

Solution:

The area of the region bounded by the curve y² = x, the lines x = 1 and x = 4 and the X-axis is shown in the figure.

Here, a = 1, b = 4

Since, the given curve y² = x is parabola which is symmetrical about X-axis (as it contains even power of y) and passes through the origin.

Subject to the constraints

3x – 4y + 12 ≥ 0,

2x – y + 2 ≥ 0,

2x + 3y – 12 ≥ 0,

o ≤ x ≤ 4,

and y ≥ 2

Solution:

Our problem is to minimize

Z = 5x + 10 y … (i)

Subject to the constraints

x + 2y ≤ 120 ,..(ii)

x + y ≥ 60 …(iii)

x – 2y ≥ 0 … (iv)

and x, y ≥ 0

Table for line x + 2y = 120 is

Put (0, 0) in the inequality x + 2y ≤ 120, we get

0 + 2 x 0 ≤ 120

⇒ 0 ≤ 120 (which is true)

So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Table for line x + y = 60 is

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality x + y ≥ 60, we get

0 + 0 ≥ 60 ⇒ 0 ≥ 60 (which is false)

So, the half plane is away from the origin.

Table for line x ~2y = 0 is

On putting (5, 0) in the inequality x – 2y ≥ 0, we get

5 -2 x 0 ≥ 0

⇒ 5 ≥ 0 (which is true)

Thus, the half plane is towards the X-axis,

Since, x, y ≥ 0

∴ The feasible region lies in the first quadrant.

Clearly, feasible region is ABCDA.

On solving equations x – 2y = 0 and x + y = 60, we get D(40,20)and on solving equations x – 2y = Oand x + 2y = 120, we get C (60, 30). The corner points of the feasible region are A (60, 0), 6 (120, 0), C (60, 30) and D (40, 20).

The values of Z at these points are as follows

Corner points | Value of Z =5x + 10y |

A(60, 0) | 300 (Minimum) |

B(120, 0) | 600 |

C(60, 30) | 600 |

D(40, 20) | 400 |

Clearly, the minimum value of Z is 300 at the point (60,0).

Or

The given LPP can be rewritten as

Maximize or minimize Z = 3x + 5y

Subject to the constraints

3x – 4y ≥ -12 …(i)

2x – y ≥ -2 …(ii)

2x + 3y ≥ 12 …(iii)

x ≤ 4 …(iv)

y ≥ 2 … (v)

and x ≥ 0 …(vi)

Converting the inequations into equations, we obtain the following equations 3x – 4y = -12,

2x – y = -2, 2x+ 3y = 12, x = 4, y = 2 and x = 0.

Table for line 3x – 4y = -12 is

So, line passes through the points (0, 3) and (-4, 0). On putting (0, 0) in the inequality 3x – 4y ≥ -12, we get

3 × 0 – 4 × 0 ≥ -12

⇒ 0 ≥ -12 (which is true)

So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Table for line 2x – y = -2 is

So,line passes through the points (0, 2) and (-1, 0).

On putting (0,0) in the inequality 2x – y ≥ -2, we get

2 × 0 – 0 ≥ -2

⇒ 0 ≥ -2 (which is true)

So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Table for line 2x + 3y = 12 is

So, the line passes through the points (0, 4) and (6, 0).

On putting (0,0) in the inequality 2x + 3y ≥ 12, we get

2 × 0 + 3 × 0 ≥ 12

⇒ 0 ≥ 12 (which is false)

So, the half plane is away from the origin.

Draw the graph of the lines x = 4 and y = 2, which is perpendicular to X and Y-axes.

Putting (0, 0) in the inequality x ≤ 4, we get

0 ≤ 4 (which is true)

So,the half plane is towards the origin.

Putting (0, 0) in the inequality y ≥ 2, we get

0 ≥ 2 (which is false)

So,the half plane is away from the origin.

In a school, teacher asks a question to three students Ravi, Mohit, Sonia.

The probability of solving the question by Ravi, Mohit, Sonia are 30%, 25% and 45%, respectively. The probability of making error by Ravi, Mohit and Sonia are 1%, 1.2% and 2%, respectively.

On the basis of above information, answer the following questions.

Question 37.

An architect designs a garden in society. The garden is in the shape rectangle inscribed in a circle of radius 10m as shown in given figure.

On the basis of above information, answer the following questions.

(i) If 2x and 2y represents the length and breadth of the rectangular part, then find the relation between the variables.

(ii) Find the area of the green grass A expressed as a function of x.

(iii) Show that the area A is maximum, when x = 5√2

Or

If the area A is maximum, when v = 5√2, then find the maximum area and area of gravelling path.

Solution:

(i) In ∆OEM, we have OE² = EM² + OM²

⇒ 10² = x² + y²

⇒ x² + y² = 100 …(i)

(ii) The area of green grass, A = EB × BC

The length of rectangle when A is maximum = 2x

= 2 × 5√2 = 10√2 m

⇒ y² = 100 – x² = 100 – 50 = 50 [∵ x = 5√2]⇒ y = 5√2

⇒ 2y = 10√2m

∴ Area of rectangle = (2x)(2y) = 200 m²

Now, area of gravelling path

= Area of circle – Area of rectangle

= π(10)² – 200 = 100π – 200

= 100(π – 2)m²

(ii) The CEO of the multi-national company is interested in maximizing the area of the whole floor including the semi-circular ends. For this to happen, find the value of x.

Solution:

(i) From the figure, it is clear that perimeter of floor = 200 m

⇒ 2 × π(\(\frac{y}{2}\)) + 2x = 200

From figure, we have

(ii) Let B be the area of whole floor. Then,
