III. Answer any TEN questions. (10 × 3 = 30)

Question 26.
Prove that $$\sqrt{2}$$ is an irrational number.
We shall prove it by the method ofcontradiction.
If possible Let $$\sqrt{2}$$ be a rational number
Let $$\sqrt{2}$$ = $$\frac{p}{q}$$ where p and q are Integers and q ≠ 0.
Further let p and q are coprime i.e. H.C.F. of p and q = 1.
$$\sqrt{2}$$ = $$\frac{p}{q}$$ ⇒ $$\sqrt{2}$$q = p
⇒ 2q2 = p2
⇒ 2 divides p2 ⇒ 2 divides p
⇒ p is even
Let p = 2k where k is an integer p2 = 4k2
2q2 = 4k2
q2 = 2k2 ⇒ q2 is even
⇒ q is even.
Now p is even and q is even which implies p and q have a common factor 2. which is a
contradiction of the fact that p and q are co-prime.
∴ our assumption that $$\sqrt{2}$$ is rational is wrong and hence $$\sqrt{2}$$ is irrational.

Question 27.
If f(x) = x + 1 and g(x) = x2 + 1. Find (1) fog(1) (2) fog(2) (3) gof(2)
(i) fog(1) =f(g(1))
= f(2)
= 2 + 1 = 3

(ii) fog (2) = f(g (2))
= f(5)
= 5 + 1 = 6

(iii) gof (1)
= gof (1)
= g(f(1))
= g (2) = 4 + 1 = 5

Question 28.
If ax = by = cz and b2 = ac. Show that $$\frac{1}{x}+\frac{1}{z}=\frac{2}{y}$$
Let ax = by = cz = k(say)
∴ ax = k ⇒ a = k1/x, by = k ⇒ b = k1/y, cz = k ⇒ c = k1/z
Now, b2 = ac
∴ (k1/y)2 = k1/x. k1/z
∴ k2/y = k1/x+1/z
Bases are the same ∴ Equatlig powers on both sides, we get.
$$\frac{2}{y}=\frac{1}{x}+\frac{1}{z}$$

Question 29.
Solve log x + log (x – 4) – log (x – 6) = 0
logx(x-4) – log(x-6) = 0
⇒ log = 0 ⇒  = 1 ⇒ x2 – 5x + 6 = 0
x = 2 or 3

Question 30.
Find the three numbers in GP whose sum is 39 and their product is 729.
Let the three numbers be $$\frac{a}{r}$$,a,ar
Product = 729
⇒ a3 = 729 ⇒ a3 = 93 ⇒a = 9
Sum = 39
$$\frac{a}{r}$$ + a + ar = 39
$$\frac{9}{r}$$ + 9 + 9r = 39
$$\frac{9}{r}$$ + 9r = 39 – 9
$$\frac{9}{r}$$ + 9r = 30
⇒ 9 + 9r2 = 30
r ⇒ 9r2 – 30r + 90
⇒ 9r2 – 27r – 3r + 90
9r(r – 3)-3 (r-3) = 0
(r – 3)(9r – 3) = 0
r = 3 or 9r = 3
r = 3 or r = $$\frac{3}{9}=\frac{1}{3}$$
r = 3 or r = $$\frac{1}{3}$$

The numbers are $$\frac{a}{3}$$,a,ar
$$\frac{9}{3}$$, 9, 9(3)
3,9,27.

Question 35.
The price of a pair of trousers was decreased by 22% of ₹ 390. What was the original price of the trousers.
Let the original price be x. .
Then (x – $$\frac{22 x}{100}$$) = 390 ⇒ x(1 – $$\frac{22}{100}$$) = 390 ⇒ x$$\frac{78}{100}$$ = 390
x = $$\frac{390 \times 100}{78}$$ = ₹ 500

Question 36.
Find the value of $$\frac{\sin \frac{\pi}{2} \cos ^{2} \frac{\pi}{6} \sec ^{2} \frac{\pi}{4}}{\tan \frac{\pi}{3}+\cot \frac{\pi}{3}}$$
$$\frac{\sin \frac{\pi}{2} \cos ^{2} \frac{\pi}{6} \sec ^{2} \frac{\pi}{4}}{\tan \frac{\pi}{3}+\cot \frac{\pi}{3}}=\frac{1 \times\left(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\right)^{2} \cdot(\sqrt{2})^{2}}{\sqrt{3}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}}=\frac{\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4} \times 2}{\frac{(\sqrt{3})^{2}+1}{\sqrt{3}}}=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} \times \frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}=\frac{3}{8}$$

Question 39.
In a group of 50 people, 35 speak Kannada and 25 speak both English and Kannada and all the people speak at least one of the two languages. How many speak English? How many speak only English and not Kannada? How many speak only Kannada?
n(K ∪ E) = n[K) + n(E) – n(K ∩ E)
50 = 35 + n(E) – 25 ⇒ K(E) = 40
(i) n(E-K) = n(E)-n(E∩K) = 40-25 = 15
(ii) n(K-E) = n(K) – n[K ∩ E) = 35 -25 = 10

Question 40.
Evaluate $$\frac{213.78 \times 7.434}{6.321}$$ using logarithmic tables.
Let x = $$\frac{213.781 \times 7.434}{6.321}$$
logx = $$\left[\frac{213.781 \times 7.434}{6.321}\right]$$
= log213.781 + logl.434 – log6.321
= 2.3298 + 0.87 12 –0.8008.
= 2.4002
x = Antilog 2.4002
x = 25 1.3.

Question 41.
Find the sum of all numbers between 60 and 400 which are divisible by 13.
Sn = 65 + 78 + 91 +…………..+390
a = 5 d = 13 n =? Tn = 390
Tn = a + (n – 1)d
390 = 65 + (n – 1)13
390 = 65 + 13n – 13
13n = 338
∴ n=26
Sn = $$\frac{n}{2}$$[a + l] = (65+390) = 13 (455)= 5,915
∴ S = 5,915

Question 42.
A mother is 32 years older than her son. After 4 years the mother’s age will be 8 years more than twice that of her son. Find their present ages.
Let the present age of the son = x yrs.
and the present age of the mother = x + 32 years
After 4 years age of the mother = x + 36
Given that x + 36 = 8 + 2 (x + 4) = 8 + 2x + 8
36 – 16 = 2x – x
x = 20 years
∴ son’s present age is x = 20 yrs
mother’s present age is 20 + 32 = 52 years.

Question 43.
Find the difference between simple interest and compound interest on ₹ 18,000 invested for 4 years at 8% p.a. where compound interest is compounded annually.
Simple Interest
P = 18,000 T = 4 R = 4
SI = $$\frac{\mathrm{PTR}}{100}$$
= $$\frac{18,000 \times 4 \times 8}{100}$$
= ₹5,760

Compound Interest
P = 18,000 n = 4 I = 008
A = P(1 + i)n
= 18,000 (1 + 0.08)4
= 24,488.8
CI = A – P
= 24,488.8 – 18,000
CI = 6488.8

Difference between CI and Si is
CI – SI = 6488.8, – 5760
= 728.8.

Question 44.
If you want to have ₹ 80,000 after 5 years, how much should you deposit every year if the bank offers 12% p.a. interest compounded quarterly.
F = 80,000, n = 5yrs, r 12% 0.12, i = $$\left(1+\frac{0.12}{4}\right)^{4}$$ – 1 = 0.125
F = $$\frac{a\left[(1+i)^{n}-1\right]}{i}$$
a = $$\frac{\mathrm{F} \times i}{(1+i)^{n}-1}=\frac{80,000 \times 10.125}{(1.125)^{5}-1}=\frac{80,000}{6.416}$$ = ₹12,468.8

Question 45.
A businessman sells an article for ₹ 720 and earns a profit of 20% Find the (a) cost price (b) profit percentage at the selling price.
S.P = 720 = $$\frac{120}{100}$$x ⇒ x = $$\frac{720 \times 100}{120}$$ = 600
∴ Profit = 720 – 600 = 120 ⇒ profit% = $$\frac{\text { profit in Rs. }}{\text { S.P. }}$$ × 100 = $$\frac{120}{720}$$ × 100 = 16.66%

Question 46.
If cot $$\frac{\theta}{2}=\frac{5}{2}$$ q is acute. Show that $$\frac{3 \cos \theta+2 \sin \theta}{3 \cos \theta-4 \sin \theta}=\frac{19}{7}$$
cotθ = $$\frac{5}{2}$$ ∴ Hyp = $$\sqrt{29}$$
cosθ = $$\frac{5}{\sqrt{29}}$$, sinθ = $$\frac{2}{\sqrt{29}}$$

Substituting and simplifying we get
LHS = $$\frac{3 \cos \theta+2 \sin \theta}{3 \cos \theta-4 \sin \theta}=\frac{3 \cdot \frac{5}{\sqrt{29}}+2 \cdot \frac{2}{\sqrt{29}}}{3 \cdot \frac{5}{\sqrt{29}}-4 \cdot \frac{2}{\sqrt{29}}}=\frac{15+4}{15-8}=\frac{19}{7}$$

Let the required equation of the line be
$$\frac{\mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{a}}+\frac{\mathrm{y}}{\mathrm{b}}$$ = 1 …………(1)
Then it meets the axes at the points A (a, 0) and B (0, b). The coordinates of the point which divides the line AB in the ratio 3: 2 are
$$\left(\frac{2 \cdot a+3 \cdot 0}{2+3}, \frac{2 \cdot 0+3 \cdot b}{2+3}\right)=\left(\frac{2 a}{5}, \frac{3 b}{5}\right)$$ …….(2)
This is the same as (-4, 7) ……………(3)
Comparing (2) and (3), $$\frac{2 a}{5}$$ =-4, $$\frac{3b}{5}$$ = 7 or a = -10, b = $$\frac{35}{3}$$
Substituting these values of a, b in (1) we get
