PART – II

1. A tennis match of best of 5 sets is played by two players ‘A’ and ‘B’. The probability that first set is
won by A is
1
2
and if he looses the first then probability of his winning of next set is
1
4
otherwise it
remains same. Find the probability that A wins the match.

2. Find the area between the curve y =
2
4 x ÷ and the locus of the point P which moves such that the
sum of its distances from the co÷ordinate axes is equal to its distance from the curve y =
2
4 x ÷ .

3. Evaluate

4. Let P be any point in the first quadrant on a curve passing through (3, 3) and the slope of the curve at
any point in the first quadrant is negative. The foot of the perpendicular from P to x-axis is the point A
and to y-axis is the point B. Tangent at P intersects with x-axis at point R and with y-axis at point Q.
Now if 2(Area (APAR)) + Area (ABPQ) =
2
3
(Area of rectangle OAPB), for all positions of P, where O
is the origin, then find all possible curves on which P can lie. Also find the minimum distance of P from
the origin on each curve.
