son’s age = (y – 1) years.
According to the question,

Substituting the value of x from equation (i)
in equation (ii), we have

(y – 1)(y – 7) = 0
⇒ y = 1 or 7
Case I. If y =1 year
1 year ago, son’s age = 1 – 1 = 0
So, 1 year ago the father could not 8 times

Consider the question,
P’s new marks in Mathematics = (x + 3)
and P’s new marks in Science = (28 – x – 4)
= (24 – x)
According to question,
Product of new marks = 180
⇒ (x + 3)(24 – x) = 180
⇒ 24x – x

⇒ (x – 9)(x – 12) = 0
⇒ x – 9 = 0, x – 12 = 0
∴ x = 9, x = 12
If x = 9; 28 – x = 19, so, marks obtained in
Mathematics and Science are 9 and 19
respectively.
If x = 12; 28 – x = 16, so, marks obtained in
Mathematics and Science are 12 and 16

According to the question,
AC = 50 cm ...(i)
AB + BC + AC

Using Pythagoras theorem in ∆ABC,
we have

From equations (i), (iii) and (iv), we have

⇒ x − 21 = − + 6 2 3 x
Again, squaring both sides, we get,

⇒ x

⇒ x
2
− 111x − 3x + 333 = 0
⇒ x(x − 111) − 3(x − 111) = 0
⇒ (x – 3)(x – 111) = 0
∴ x = 3 or x = 111 (Reject).
9. Let required number of soldiers in each
row be x.
When the number of soldiers in each row
is 2 more than the total number of rows,
Number of soldiers in each row = x
and number of rows = x – 2
Therefore, total number of soldiers
= x(x – 2) ... (i)
When total number of rows are doubled,
number of soldiers in each row
= x – 7
and number of rows = 2(x – 2)
Therefore, total number of soldiers
= 2(x – 2)(x – 7) ... (ii)
According to the question, we arrive
equation (ii) – equation (i) = 160
⇒ 2(x – 2)(x – 7) – x(x – 2) = 160
⇒ x
2
– 16x – 132 = 0
⇒ x
2
– 22x + 6x – 132 = 0
⇒ (x + 6)(x – 22) = 0
⇒ x = – 6, 22
Negative value of x cannot be taken, so
required number of soliders is 22 in each
row.

We divide

into two parts such that
sum and product of them are

respectively.
Such parts are 6 5x and 5x − so equation (i)
forms as follows:

6. If a quadratic equation has equal real roots,
then its discriminant vanishes.
i.e., D = 0
or b

From the given equation,
a = k – 12; b = 2(k – 12); c = 2
So, b
2
– 4ac = 0 provides
{2(k – 12)}
2
– 4(k – 12) × 2 = 0
i.e., 4(k
2
– 24k + 144) – 8k + 96 = 0
i.e., k
2
– 24k + 144 – 2k + 24 = 0
i.e., k
2
– 26k + 168 = 0
i.e., k
2
– 14k – 12k + 168 = 0
i.e., k(k – 14) –12(k – 14) = 0
i.e., (k – 14)(k – 12) = 0
i.e., k – 14 = 0 or k – 12 = 0
i.e., k = 14 or 12.
But k ≠ 12. ∴ k = 14.

⇒ (y + 50)(y – 40) = 0
⇒ y = 40, – 50
Neglecting y = –50 because speed is a non-
negative quantity, we get
y = 40
Substitute this value of y, i.e., y = 40
in equation (ii ) we get
x = 40 + 10 = 50
Hence, speed of the faster train = 50 km/hr
and speed of the slower train = 40 km/hr.

As this equation has equal roots, the

and that of her daughter Riya be y years.
According to the first given condition,
x = 2 + y

... (i)
Riya would reach at the age of x years after
(x – y) years.
After (x – y) years, Sumita’s age
= x – y + x
= (2x – y) years
According to the second given condition
2x – y = 10y – 1
2x – 11y + 1 = 0 ... (ii)
Putting x = 2 + y

from (i) in equation (ii),
we get

⇒ 4 + 2y
2
– 11y + 1 = 0
⇒ 2y
2
– 11y + 5 = 0
⇒ 2y
2
– 10y – y + 5 = 0
⇒ 2y (y – 5) – 1 (y – 5) = 0
⇒ (y – 5)(2y – 1) = 0

When y = 5, x = 2 + 5

Hence, present age of Sumita is 27 years

Now, area of the grass field = 1184
⇒ AB × AP × 2 + QR × KQ × 2 =1184

– 45x + 296 = 0

But x = 37 is not possible as 2x > 50
∴ x = 8 m
∴ Length of the pond

Then

th

Subtracting equation (ii) from (i), we get

⇒ d = –2
Putting d = – 2 in (i), we get
.
.
. a = 8
.
.
. Given a + (n – 1)d = 0
⇒ 8 + (n – 1) (– 2) = 0
⇒ – 2n = –10 ∴ n = 5
5
th

Thus its 5

100(a – d) + 10a + a + d as the digits are in
A.P.
171 T I R A M H I T E G O R P E R S S C I N O S
So, the required number = 111a – 99d ...(i)
Sum of the digits = 15
⇒ a – d + a + a + d = 15
⇒ a = 5 ...(ii)
The number obtained by reversing the digits
= 100(a + d) + 10a + a – d
= 111a + 99d ...(iii)
According the given condition, we have
111a – 99d = 594 + 111a + 99d
[Using equation (i) and (iii)]
⇒ –2 × 99d = 594
⇒ d = –3 ...(iv)
Using equations (i), (ii) and (iv), we arrive
that the original number is
111 × 5 – 99 × (–3), that is 852.

6. The sequence is 23, 21, 19, ............, 5
∴ a = 23
d = 21 − (23)

∴ a
n

⇒ a + (n − 1) × d = 5
⇒ 23 + (n − 1) × (− 2) = 5
⇒ 23 − 2n + 2 = 5
⇒ − 2n = − 20

Hence, number of rows is 10.

Here, a = 8100, d = –150
The profit will be ceased when it is equal
to or less than ` 1500.
Therefore, 8100 + (n – 1) × (– 150) ≤ 1500
[∵ a

So, lengths (in cm) of all rungs from
bottom to top are respectively
45, 45 – x, 45 – 2x, .......25.
This is an A.P. of 11 terms

tangents drawn from an
external point to a circle are equal.
∴ AP = AS ...(i)
Similarly, we have
PB = BQ ...(ii)
DR = SD ...(iii)
RC = QC ...(iv)
Adding these four equations, we have
AP + PB + DR + RC = AS + BQ + SD + QC
⇒ (AP + PB) + (DR + RC)
= (AS + SD) + (BQ+QC)
⇒ AB + DC = AD + BC
∵AB = DC and AD = BC
(ABCD is a parallelogram)
∴ AB = BC
Thus, AB = BC = CD = DA
Hence, ABCD is a rhombus.
9. Let line l be the
tangent at a
point P to the
circle with centre
O. Let us take
any point Q on
the tangent l as shown in the figure.
Join OQ to meet the circle at M.
We know that if a point is met with the
different points of a line, then the shortest
line segment is the perpendicular on that
line. Consider the adjoining figure:
OM = OP (Radii of same circle)
OQ = OM + MQ
⇒ OQ = OP + MQ
⇒ OQ > OP
i.e., OP < OQ
Clearly, OP is the shorter than OQ. Similarly,
we can prove that OP is the shortest all OV,
V being a variable point on the line other
than P. Therefore, OP is the perpendicular to
line l.

∠ORS = 90° – ∠SRM = 30°
∵ In ∆SOQ, ∠OSQ = ∠OQS = 40°

tangents be PA and PB
to the circle with
centre O.
We need to prove
∠APB + ∠AOB = 180°.
We know that the angle formed by a
tangent to the circle and the radius passing
through the point of contact is 90°.
∴ ∠PAO = ∠PBO = 90°
Applying angle sum property in the
quadrilateral AOBP, we get
∠PAO + ∠AOB + ∠PBO + ∠APB = 360°
⇒ 90° + ∠AOB + 90° + ∠APB = 360°
⇒ ∠AOB + ∠APB = 180°.
Hence proved.
8. We have given
l || m to a circle. DE

by tangent at C,
between l and m.
We have to prove ∠DEF = 90°
Construction: Join A to F, F to B and F to C.
Proof: In a triangles ADF and DFC, we have
DA= DC
(Tangents drawn from an external point
are equal in length)
DF = DF (Common)
AF = CF (Radii of the same circle)
∴ ∆ADF ≅ ∆CDF (SSS)
⇒ ∠ADF = ∠CDF (CPCT)
⇒ ∠ADC = 2∠CDF ... (i)
Similarly, ∠CEB = 2∠CEF ... (ii)
Now, ∠ADC + ∠CEB = 180°
Sum of the interior angles on the same side
of transversal is 180°.
⇒ 2∠CDF + 2∠CEF = 180°
184 A M T H E M A T C S I X –
⇒ ∠CDF + ∠CEF = 90° ... (iii)
In ∆DEF,
∠DEF + ∠EDF + DFE = 180°

⇒ ∠DFE = 90°.
Hence proved.

4. In ∆APQ,
∠PAQ = ∠AQP = θ (say)
(∵ AP = PQ = radius)
∠RPB = ∠QAP = θ
(Corresponding angles)
∠RPQ = ∠AQP = θ
(Alternate angles)
Now, in ∆RPQ and ∆RPB,
RP = RP (Common)
∠RPQ = ∠RPB (Each θ)
PQ = PB (Each radius)
So, by SAS creterion of similarity, we have
∆RPQ ~ ∆RPB
∴ ∠RBP = ∠RQP
But RQ ⊥ PQ,
∴ ∠RQP = 90°
∴ ∠RBP = 90°
⇒ BR is tangent at B. Hence proved.
5. Join OR and OS.
Let AP = x ∴ AS = x
In quadrilateral OSDR,
∠O + ∠S + ∠D + ∠R = 360°
⇒ ∠O + 90° + 90° + 90° = 360°
(∵ OS ⊥ AD and OR ⊥ CD)
⇒ ∠O= 90°
⇒ OSDR is a square.
⇒ DR = DS = r
Now, ABCD is a subscribed quadrilateral
∴ AB + CD = BC + DA
⇒ x + 27 + 25 = 38 + r + x
⇒ r = 14 cm.

a circle with centre O. Let
the sides AB, BC, CD and
DA touch the circle at P,
Q, R and S respectively
(see figure).
Join OA, OB, OC, OD, OP, OQ, OR and OS.
We need to prove
∠AOB + ∠COD = ∠BOC + ∠DOA = 180°.
Proof: In ∆AOP and ∆AOS,
OP = OS (Radii of same circle)
AP =AS (Tangents from external points)
AO= AO (Common)
∴∆AOP ≅ ∆AOS(SSS axiom of congruence)
∴∠1 = ∠8 ...(i) (CPCT)
Similarly, we can prove that
∠2 = ∠3, ∠4 = ∠5 and ∠6 = ∠7 ... (ii)
As, ∠1, ∠2, ∠3, ∠4, ∠5, ∠6, ∠7 and ∠8 are
subtended at a point
∴ ∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠5 + ∠6 + ∠7 + ∠8
= 360°
⇒ ∠1 + ∠1 + ∠2 + ∠2 + ∠5 + ∠5 + ∠6 + ∠6
= 360°
Also, ∠8 + ∠8 + ∠3 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠4 + ∠7 + ∠7
= 360°
[Using results from equations (i) and (ii)]
⇒ 2(∠1 + ∠2) + 2(∠5 + ∠6) = 360°
Also, 2(∠3 + ∠4) + 2(∠7 + ∠8) = 360°
⇒ 2∠AOB + 2∠COD = 360°
Also, 2∠BOC + 2∠DOA = 360°
⇒ ∠AOB + ∠COD = ∠BOC + ∠DOA
= 180°
Hence proved.

But these are alternate pair of interior angles.
∴ MN || BC.
5. Note that tangents
drawn from an
external point to a
circle are equal in

Tangents are drawn from A, B and C, so we

AQ= AR ... (i)
BQ= BP ... (ii)

Taking equation (i), we
AQ= AR = AC + CR = AC + CP

In ∆AOP and ∆BOP,
∠PAO= ∠PBO = 90°
(Angle between tangent and corresponding
radius)
OP = OP (Common)
AO= BO (Radii of same circle)
Therefore,
∆AOP ≅ ∆BOP (RHS criterion)

Join OP and OQ.
In ∆PTR and ∆QTR,
PT = QT
(Tangents from an external point to the

∠PTR= ∠QTR
(Line segment joining the centre and the
point of intersection of the tangents bisects
the angle between the tangents)
TR= TR (Common)
Therefore,
∆PTR ≅ ∆QTR (SAS criterion)
⇒ PR= QR (CPCT)
Also, ∠ORP = ∠ORQ = 90°

From equations (i) and (ii),
∠PQR + ∠PQR + 30° = 180°

Now, ∠TQR + ∠PQR = 90°

QC = BC – BQ= 38 – 27 = 11 cm
RC = QC = 11 cm
(Tangents from point C)
DR = DC – RC = 25 – 11 = 14 cm

Hence, radius of the incircle is 14 cm.
8. Let AD = x. We
know that the
tangents drawn

AF = AC – CF = 12 – (2 + x)
= 10 – x = AD
But AD= x
∴ 10 – x = x ⇒ x = 5 cm, i.e., AD = 5 cm
BE = 8 – x = 8 – 5 = 3 cm

Thus, AD= 5 cm, BE = 3 cm and CF = 7 cm.

∠PAO = ∠PBO = 90° ... (ii)
Again, ∠PAO= ∠PBO [Using (ii)]
⇒ ∠PAB + ∠BAO= ∠PBA + ∠ABO
⇒ ∠PAB + ∠ABO= ∠PBA + ∠ABO
[Using (i)]
⇒ ∠PAB = ∠PBA.
6. Hint: AP = AU,
BP = BQ,
CR = CQ,
DR = DS,
ET = ES
FT = FU.
7. We know that the
tangents drawn from an
external point to a circle
are equal in length.
∴ AQ= AR ... (i)
BQ= BP ... (ii)
and CP = CR ... (iii)
Now,
AQ= AB + BQ
= AB + BP [From (ii)]
= AB + (BC – PC)
= AB + BC – CR [From (iii)]
= AB + BC – (AR – AC)
= AB + BC + CA – AR
= AB + BC + CA – AQ [From (i)]
⇒ AQ + AQ= AB + BC + CA
⇒ AQ=
1
2
(AB + BC + CA)
Hence proved.
8. ∠BCA= 90° ... (i) (Angle in semicircle)
∠PCA= ∠PCB + ∠BCA
⇒ 110° = ∠PCB + 90°
⇒ ∠PCB = 110° – 90° = 20° ...(ii)
Since PC is a tangent and CB is a chord
∴ ∠BAC = ∠PCB = 20° ... (iii) [Using (ii)]
Now, applying angle sum property in ∆ABC,
we have
∠CBA + ∠BCA + ∠CAB = 180°
⇒ ∠CBA + 90° + 20° = 180°
[Using (i) and (ii)]
⇒ ∠CBA= 180° – 90° – 20° = 70°.

1. (D) Since, the angle between two radii of a circle and the angle between corresponding two
tangents are supplementary.
∴ Required angle = 180° – 35° = 145°.
2. (B) Out of the numbers 8 and 5 in

4. Steps of construction:
First, we draw a triangle ABC such that AB = 4 cm, AC = 5 cm and ∠BAC = 90°. Further, we
will draw a triangle A′BC′ similar to triangle ABC using the following steps.
Step I: Draw a ray BX making an acute angle with BC on the side opposite to vertex A.

Then, ∆A′BC′ ~ ∆ABC.
5. Steps of construction:
Step I: First, draw a circle with radius as 5 cm and centre at O. Then take a point P so that
OP = 11 cm.
Step II: Bisect OP to find mid-point M of OP. Then take M as centre and MP = MO as radius,
draw a circle to intersect the previous circle at Q and R.
Step III: Join PQ and PR which are the required tangents.
After measuring PQ and PR, we find PQ = PR = 9.8 cm (approximately).
Justification:
Join OQ and OR.
In ∆OPQ, OP = 11 cm, OQ = 5 cm and PQ = 9.8 cm
∴ OP
2
– OQ
2
= 11
2
– 5
2
= (11 + 5)(11 – 5) = 96
And PQ

Clearly, OP

⇒ OP

Therefore, ∆POQ and ∆POR are right triangles with ∠PQO = ∠PRO = 90°.

So, tangents are perpendicular to radii passing through their respective points of contact.
i.e., PQ ⊥ OQ and PR ⊥ OR.

Step I: Draw a ∆ABC in
which BC = 7 cm, ∠B = 45° and
∠C = 180° – (45° + 105°) = 30°.

an angle AOB of measure 180° – 60° = 120°.

Step II: Make ∠OAP = 90° and ∠BOP = 90° to intersect each other at P.
Such obtained AP and BP are the required tangents such that ∠APB = 60°.

(b) Taking M as centre and radius = MP =

(c) Join PA and PB.
PA and PB are the required tangents.
On measuring, PA = 6.35 cm and
PB = 6.35 cm. Clearly, PA and PB are of

6. We know that the angle between a pair of tangents to a circle and the angle between
their corresponding radii are supplementary. Therefore, the angle between these radii

PA and PB are the required tangents drawn from the external point P to the circle with
centre O and radius 4 cm.
In quadrilateral OAPB formed by tangents PA, PB and radii OA, OB, each internal

Hence, distance between the two planes is
6250 m.
8. Let the tower be PQ and the objects be A

(Alternate angles)
In right ∆APQ,
∠PAQ + ∠PQA= 90°
⇒∠PQA = 90° – 45° = 45° (∵∠PAQ = 45°)

Substituting CE = 10.92 in (i), we get
AB = 10.92 + 8 = 18.92 m
Further, BC = BE + CE = 8 + 10.92

Hence, the height of the multi-storyed
building and the distance between the two
buildings is 18.92 metres each.
6. Let AB be the first tower

be the second tower
with bottom C.
BE = 80 m

same as the outcomes in sample space.
7. Let the number of black balls be x.
So, total number of balls = x + 5
Probability of drawing a black ball is
P

x
x
Also, probability of drawing a red ball is
P

According to the question, we have
P

⇒ x = 10.
Hence, the number of black balls is 10.
8. Number of all cards = 50 – 5 + 1 = 46
i.e., n(S) = 46
(i ) Let E
1
be the event that the number
on the card taken out is a prime less
than 10.
Prime numbers from 5 to 9 are 5
and 7.

The perfect square numbers from
5 to 50 are 9, 16, 25, 36 and 49.
∴ n(E

9. Number of all possible outcomes,
n(S) = 52
(i ) Number of spades = 13
Number of aces = 4
But 1 ace is of spades.
∴ Number of favourable outcomes
= 13 + 4 – 1 = 16
∴ P(card drawn is a spades or an ace)
=
16
52
=

(ii) Number of red kings = 2
∴ P(card drawn is a red king)
=

(iii) Number of kings = 4
Number of queens = 4
∴ Number of favourable outcomes
= 52 – 4 – 4 = 44
∴ P (card drawn is neither a king nor a
queen)
=
44 11
=
52 13
.
(iv) Number of kings = 4
Number of queens = 4
Number of favourable outcomes

∴ P(card drawn is either a king or a
queen) =

can’t be probability of an event.
2. (B) Let the number of bolts be x. Then
400
x
= 0.035 ⇒ x = 400 × 0.035 ⇒ x = 14.

3. Number of cards = 50
Prime numbers from 51 to 100 are: 53, 59,
61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97
Therefore, number of all possible outcomes
= 50.
And number of favourable outcomes = 10.
∴ Required probability =
10 1
=
50 5
.
4. True,
Ratio of probabilities
= Ratio of areas of regions a, b and c
= Ratio of areas of corresponding sectors
= Ratio of corresponding angles
= 60° : 120° : 180° = 1 : 2 : 3.
5. A leap year contains 366 days, wherever
52 weeks and 2 days. There are 52
Thursdays in 52 weeks. Therefore, a leap
year consists 52 Thursdays and 2 days.
These two days may be one choice out of
the seven given below:
(i) Thursday and Friday
(ii) Friday and Saturday
(iii) Saturday and Sunday
(iv) Sunday and Monday
(v) Monday and Tuesday
(vi) Tuesday and Wednesday
(vii) Wednesday and Thursday
So, two days are either Thursday and
Friday or Wednesday and Thursday.
Clearly, the number of all possible
outcomes is 7 and the number of favourable
outcomes is 2.
Hence, required probability =
2

.
6. Let number of blue marbles= x
Number of green marbles = y
Number of white marbles = z
Therefore, x + y + z = 54
P(selecting a blue marble) =
x
x y z + +

x
⇒ x =

P(selecting a green marble) =

y
⇒ y =

= 24
Now, substituting x = 18, y = 24 in
x + y + z = 54, we get
18 + 24 + z = 54
⇒ z = 54 – 42
⇒ z = 12
Hence, the jar contains 12 white marbles.
7. Number of blue triangles = 3
Number of red triangles = 8 – 3 = 5
Number of blue squares = 6
Number of red squares = 10 – 6 = 4
Number of all possible outcomes

8. Let E be the event of placing at least one
letter in the wrong envelope. Anyone
envelope can be filled with a letter in 4
ways. Second one can be filled by 3 ways.
Third one can be filled by 2 ways. And the
fourth one can be filled with the remaining
one letter in 1 way. Therefore, the four
letters are placed in the four envelopes in
4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 24 ways. Out of these 24
230 A M T H E M A T C S I X –
ways, only 1 way is such that all the letters
are placed in the right envelopes and 23
ways are such that at least one letter is
placed in the wrong envelope.
∴ P(E) =

3. The number of outcomes when a pair of
dice is rolled = 6
2
= 36.
The outcomes such that the sum is divisible
by 3 are:
(1, 2), (1, 5), (2, 1), (2, 4), (3, 3), (3, 6), (4, 2),
(4, 5), (5, 1), (5, 4), (6, 3), (6, 6).
These are 12 outcomes.
The outcomes such that the sum is divisible
by 2 are:
(1, 1), (1, 3), (1, 5), (2, 2), (2, 4), (2, 6), (3, 1),
(3, 3), (3, 5), (4, 2), (4, 4), (4, 6), (5, 1), (5, 3),
(5, 5), (6, 2), (6, 4), (6, 6).
These are 18 outcomes.
The outcomes such that the sum is divisible
by 6 are:
(1, 5), (2, 4), (3, 3), (4, 2), (5, 1), (6, 6).
These are 6 outcomes.
Now, the number of outcomes which are
divisible by 3 or 2 is 12 + 18 – 6 = 24.
Hence, the required probability =
24 2
=
36 3
.
4. No.
An unbiased die has six equally likely
outcomes. These are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Each of them has equal probability.
Therefore, the probability of getting 6 is
1

and that of not 6 is
5

Since the lengths of all the sides of ∆ABC
are different, therefore, ∆ABC is a scalene

Substituting this value of ar(∆ADE) in

ar(∆ABC) = 4 × 3 = 12 square units.

quadrilateral ABCD.
AB =

AD =

17
Clearly, AB = BC = CD = AD
All the sides of quadrilateral ABCD are
equal.
Therefore, ABCD is a rhombus. It may be a
square if diagonals are equal. To confirm it,
we have to find out the lengths of diagonal
AC and BD.
AC =
2 2
(2 – 5) (1– 6) + =

(6– 1) (2 – 5) + =

Clearly, AC = BD.
Hence, quadrilateral ABCD is a square.
8. To find area of quadrilateral ABCD, we
divide it into two parts by either diagonal
(see graph).

Let x = Number of hours required by
second pipe to fill the pool
∴ x + 5 = Number of hours taken by first
pipe to fill the pool
x – 4 = Number of hours taken by third

The parts of pool
filling in one hour

⇒ x = 10 or x = – 2
∴ x = 10.
(Value with negative sign is rejected)
Hence times required by first, second and

Let Nisha’s present age be x years, so at
present Asha’s age be (x
2
+ 2) years when
Nisha grows to her mother’s present age,
i.e., (x
2
+ 2) years then Asha’s age would
be (10x – 1) years.
That means Nisha grows (x
2
+ 2x – x) year
and hence Asha also grows the same
years. That means Asha’s age would be
{(x
2
+ 2) + (x
2
+ 2 – x)} years.
Now equating Asha’s both of above
mentioned ages, we get:
(x
2
+ 2) + (x
2
+ 2 – x) = 10x – 1
⇒ 2x
2
– x + 4 = 10x – 1
⇒ 2x
2
– 11x + 5 = 0
⇒ 2x
2
– 10x – x + 5 = 0
⇒ 2x(x – 5) – 1 (x – 5) = 0
⇒ (x

– 5) (2x – 1) = 0 ∴ x = 5,

But x =

Therefore, Nisha’s present age = 5 years

Now, radius of

and BC = CD + DB = 14 cm
Also CD= CF = 6 cm
and BD= BE = 8 cm.
Let AF = AE = x
⇒ AC = 6x; AB = 8 + x
∴ a =14, b = 6 + x, c = 8 + x
Now, using Heron’s formula

∴ From (i) and (ii),
48 (14 + ) x x = 56 + 4x
4 3 (14 + ) x x = 56 + 4x
3 (14 + ) x x = 14 + x
Squaring both sides, we get
⇒ 3x (14 + x) = (14 + x)
2
⇒ 3x = 14 + x
⇒ 2x = 14
⇒ x = 7
∴ AB = 8 + x = 15 cm
And AC = 6 + x = 13 cm.

34. In Figure, PC
denotes the multi-
storeyed building
and AB denotes
the 8 m tall
building. We are
interested to deter-
mine the height of the multi-storeyed
building, i.e., PC and the distance between
the two buildings, i.e., AC.
Look at the figure carefully. Observe that
PB is a transversal to the parallel lines PQ
and BD. Therefore, ∠QPB and ∠PBD are
alternate angles, and so are equal. So
∠PBD = 30°. Similarly, ∠PAC = 45°.
In right-angled ∆PBD, we have
PD
BD
= tan 30° =
1
3
or BD = PD 3
In right-angled ∆PAC, we have
PC
AC
= tan 45° = 1
i.e., PC = AC
Also, PC = PD + DC.
Therefore, PD + DC = AC.
Since, AC = BD and DC = AB = 8 m,
we get
PD + 8 = BD = PD 3
This gives
PD =

and the distance between the two buildings
is also 4

Let PQ be the tangent at A to the circum-

∴ ∠ABC = ∠ACB
Construction: Draw AD; perpendicular

∠1 + ∠2 = 90° and ∠3 + ∠4 = 90°

Let in ∆ABC;

Let A(x

Adding equations (i), (ii) and (iii), we get

And from equations (iv), (v) and (vi), we get

By solving equation (vii) with equations (i),

Similarly, we can find that

Thus, A = (1, – 4), B = (3, 2), C = (– 1, 2)
∴ Coordinates of the vertices are
(1, – 4); (3, 2) and (– 1, 2).
20. Let ABCD be
the square in
which A(–1, 2)

Let coordinates

Also ∠ B = 90°.
So, AB

Put x = 1,

⇒ y
2
+ 4 – 4y = 4
⇒ y
2
– 4y = 0 ⇒ y(y – 4) = 0

22. Let AB be the tower of height 22 m and
CD be an observer of height 1.5 m.
In ∆ACE, CE = DB = 20.5 m,
AE = AB – BE (i.e., CD)
= 22 – 1.5 = 20.5 m
and ∠ACE = θ
So, tan θ =
AE
CE
⇒ tan θ =
20.5
20.5

⇒ tan θ = tan 45° ∴ θ = 45°.
23. Join AB.
As OA = r; OP = diameter = 2r

Similarly, ∠2 = 30° ⇒ ∠APB = 60°
As AP = PB ⇒ ∠PAB = ∠PBA
Using Angle sum property in ∆APB,
∠PAB = ∠PBA = 60° = ∠APB
⇒ ∆APB is equilateral. Hence proved.
24. The ratio between sides is 3 : 2

The discriminant = b
2
– 4ac
= (5 5 )
2
– 4 × 3 × (– 10)
= 125 + 120 = 245 > 0
So, the given equation has two distinct
real roots.
Now, 3x
2
+ 5 5 x – 10 = 0
⇒ 3x
2
+ 6 5 x – 5 x – 10 = 0
⇒ 3x(x + 2 5 ) – 5 (x + 2 5 ) = 0
⇒ (x + 2 5 ) (3x – 5 ) = 0
Therefore, x + 2 5 = 0 or 3x – 5 = 0
∴ x = – 2 5 or 3x = 5 ⇒ x =

30. Let unit’s digit = x
and ten’s digit = y
Then, original number = 10y + x
Now, xy = 15 ... (i) (Given)
According to question,
(10y + x) + 18 = 10x + y
⇒ – 9x + 9y = – 18
⇒ y – x = – 2
⇒ y = x – 2
Using it in equation (i), we get
x(x – 2) = 15
⇒ x
2
– 2x – 15 = 0
⇒ x
2
– 5x + 3x – 15 = 0
x(x – 5) + 3(x – 5) = 0
(x + 3)(x – 5) = 0
⇒ x = – 3 or x = 5
As negative digits are not acceptable here,
∴ x = 5
∴ Unit’s digit = 5
And ten’s digit = 3
Hence, number is 35.

and S respectively.
To show:
∠AOB + ∠COD= 180°
∠AOD + ∠BOC = 180°
Construction: Join OP, OQ, OR and OS.
Proof: Since two tangents drawn from an
external point to a circle subtend equal
angles at the centre
∴ ∠1 = ∠2; ∠3 = ∠4;
∠5 = ∠6; ∠7 = ∠8
Now∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠5 + ∠6
+ ∠7 + ∠8 = 360°
⇒ 2 (∠2 + ∠3 + ∠6 + ∠7) = 360°
and 2 (∠1 + ∠8 + ∠4 + ∠5) = 360°
⇒ (∠2 + ∠3) + (∠6 + ∠7) = 180°

R S I T C E P A E P A C R P
and (∠1 + ∠8) + (∠4 + ∠5) = 180°

Hence proved.
OR
We are given a circle
with centre O, an
external point T and
two tangents TP and
TQ to the circle,
where P, Q are the points of contact (see
figure) . We need to prove that
∠PTQ= 2∠OPQ
Let ∠PTQ= θ
As we know that tangent segments
drawn from an external point to the circle
are equal. So, TP = TQ
⇒ TPQ is an isosceles triangle.
Therefore, ∠TPQ= ∠TQP =

(180° – θ)

Also, OP ⊥ PT,

Let the angles be a – d, a and a + d.
Now,
a – d + a + a + d = 180°

Also, a – d =

(a + d)
(Given condition)
2a – 2d = a + d
or a = 3d
Using (i), we get
3d = 60°
⇒ d = 20°
∴ a – d = 60° – 20° = 40°
and a + d = 60° + 20° = 80°
Hence, the required angles are 40°, 60°
and 80°.

23. We are given a circle

external point T and
two tangents TP and

where P, Q are the points of contact (see

∠PTQ= 2∠OPQ
Let ∠PTQ= θ
As we know that tangent segments
drawn from an external point to the circle
are equal. So, TP = TQ
⇒ TPQ is an isosceles triangle.
Therefore, ∠TPQ= ∠TQP =

We are given a chord AB of a circle and two

We need to prove that
∠CAB = ∠CBA and ∠PAB = ∠QBA
We know that pair of tangents drawn from
an external point to a circle are equal in
length.
∴ CA= CB
In ∆CAB, ∠CAB = ∠CBA ...(i)
(∵ CA = CB)
Now, ∠CAB + ∠PAB = 180° (Linear pair)
⇒ ∠PAB = 180° – ∠CAB ...(ii)
Similarly, ∠QBA= 180° – ∠CBA
⇒ ∠QBA= 180° – ∠CAB ...(iii)
[Using (i)]
From (i), (ii) and (iii), we have
∠CAB = ∠CBA and ∠PAB = ∠QBA
Hence proved.

⇒ 3x + y – 23 = 0 ...(ii)
or 3x + y – 3 = 0 ...(iii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get x = 7, y = 2
Solving (i) and (iii), we get x = 1, y = 0
∴ Required point is (7, 2) or (1, 0).

31. Proof: We are given a circle with centre
O, a point P lying outside the circle and
two tangents PQ and PR on the circle
from P(see figure). We are required to
prove that PQ = PR.
For this, we join OP, OQ and OR. Then
∠OQP and ∠ORP are right angles,
because these angles are between the radii
and tangents. Now in right triangles OQP
and ORP,
OQ= OR
(Radii of the same circle)
OP = OP (Common)
Therefore, ∆OQP ≅ ∆ORP (RHS)
This gives PQ = PR (CPCT)
Consider: AB + CD

(Using above theorem)

∴ AB + CD = AD + BC. Hence proved.

∴ x – 8 = – (x – 2)
i.e., 2x = 10
i.e., x = 5
Substituting x = 5 in equation (i), we get

In ∆EDF,
