4. The sign of the determinant of a square matrix changes if any two rows
(or columns) in the matrix are interchanged.
5. If two rows (or columns) of a square matrix are identical, the value of the
determinant of the matrix is zero.
The interchange of any two rows (columns) of a determinant changes only
its sign and has no effect on its absolute value.
6. If all the elements of a row (or column) of a square matrix are multiplied
by a number k then the value of the determinant of the matrix obtained is
k times the determinant of the given matrix.
7. If each element in a row (or column) of a square matrix is the sum of two
numbers, then its determinant can be expressed as the sum of the
determinants of two square matrices.

Relation between Continuity and Differentiability Relation between Continuity and Differentiability Relation between Continuity and Differentiability Relation between Continuity and Differentiability Relation between Continuity and Differentiability
If a function is differentiable at a point, then it is also continuous at that point,
but converse is not always true. But if a function is not continuous at a point,
then it is not differentiable at that point.
Example of a function which is continuous but not differentiable at a point is,
f(x) = |x|. This function is continuous at x = 0, but it is not differentiable at
x = 0. Generally, continuous functions which have corners or kinks in their
graph are not derivable at those points.

Any number of the form a + ib, where a and b are real numbers, is called
complex number. Generally, complex numbers are denoted by z (= a + ib say).
Here a is called the real part of z, and b is the imaginary part of z. Notation for
the same is Re (z) = a, Im (z) = b, where Re (z) stands for the real part of z and
Im (z) stands for the imaginary part of z. Any complex number a + ib can also
be written as (a, b).

together are called the coordinate axes coordinate axes coordinate axes coordinate axes coordinate axes. The plane is called the XY-plane or
coordinate plane. The point 'O' is known as origin origin origin origin origin. From any point 'P' in the
plane, draw a straight line parallel to OY to meet OX in M.
The distance OM (= x) is called the abscissa abscissa abscissa abscissa abscissa, and the distance MP (= y) is
called the ordinate ordinate ordinate ordinate ordinate of the point P, whereas the abscissa and the ordinate
together are its coordinates, denoted simply as P(x, y). For an arbitrary pair of
real numbers x and y, there exists a unique point A in the XY-plane for which
x will be its abscissa and y its ordinate. Note that (x, y) is an ordered pair,
which means that point (x, y) is different from (y, x).

Suppose a straight line AX is drawn in the horizontal direction. Then the angle
XAP where P is a point above AX is called angle of elevation angle of elevation angle of elevation angle of elevation angle of elevation of P as seen from
A. Similarly, the angle XAQ, where Q is below AX, is called angle of angle of angle of angle of angle of
depression depression depression depression depression of some point Q.
Note Note Note Note Note that both the angles — angle of elevation and angle of depression — are
measured with the horizontal line. In the figure shown, the angle of elevation
of top of the pole AC standing on inclined plane PQ is ∠ABM (not ∠ABC).

Mode Mode Mode Mode Mode
Mode is the value which occurs most frequently in a set of observations.
The mode may or may not exist, and even if it does exist, it may not be unique.
A distribution having a unique mode is called ‘unimodal’ and one having
more than one is called ‘multimodal’.
Examples Examples Examples Examples Examples

The set 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 7, 7, 7, 9 has two modes, 4 and 7, and is called
bimodal.
Calculation of Mode Calculation of Mode Calculation of Mode Calculation of Mode Calculation of Mode
In case of frequency distribution, mode is the value of the variable
corresponding to the maximum frequency. In case of continuous frequency

51. c Since SALIM occupies the second position and the
two girls RITA and SITA are always adjacent to
each other. So, none of these two girls can occupy
the first seat. Thus, first seat can be occupied by any
one of the remaining two students in 2 ways.
Second seat can be occupied by SALIM in only one
way. Now, in the remaining three seats SITA and
RITA can be seated in the following four ways:
I II I II I II I II I II III IV III IV III IV III IV III IV V V V V V
1. X SALIM SITA RITA X
2. X SALIM RITA SITA X
3. X SALIM X SITA RITA

Now, only one seat is left which can be occupied by
the 5th student in one way. Hence, the number of
required type of arrangements = 2 × 4 × 1 = 8.

have 4 letters which can be arranged in 4! ways.
But, two consonants can be put together in 2! ways.
Therefore, 5 letters in each group can be arranged

occurs) is 0.6, i.e. P(A ∪ B) = 0.6 and
P(A and B occur simultaneously) = 0.2, i.e.

Now, P(A ∪ B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B)
⇒ 0.6 = P(A) + P(B) – 0.2

Complex Numbers
Definition
Any number of the form a + ib, where a and b are real numbers, is called complex number. Generally, complex numbers are denoted by z (= a + ib say). Here a is called the real part of z, and b is the imaginary part of z. Notation for the same is Re (z) = a, Im (z) = b, where Re (z) stands for the real part of z and Im (z) stands for the imaginary part of z. Any complex number a + ib can also be written as (a, b).

Properties
1. Two complex numbers z1 and z2 are equal if Re (z1) = Re (z2) and Im (z1) = Im (z2). Therefore, a + ib = c + id ⇔ a = c and b = d. Note that we cannot compare two complex numbers (except equality), i.e. we cannot say whether a complex number z1 is more than or less an another complex number z2. Let z1 = (a1, b1), z2 = (a2, b2) ∈ C. Then define the sum of z1 and z2 as z1 + z2 = (a1 + a2,b1 + b2). Here + is called complex addition. For e.g. (a1 + ib1) + (a2 + ib2) = (a1 + a2) + i (b1 + b2) Similarly, (a1 + ib1) – (a2 + ib2) = (a1 – a2) + i (b1 – b2) Let z1 = (a1, b1), z2 = (a2, b2) ∈ C. Then define the sum of z1 and z2 as z1 . z2 = (a1a2 – b1b2, a1b2 + a2b1). Here ‘.’ is called complex multiplication. For e.g. (a1 + ib1) (a2 + ib2) = (a1a2 – b1b2) + i (a1b2 + a2b1) Commutative law for addition: If z1, z2 ∈ C, then z1 + z2 = z2 + z1 addition: Associative law for addition If z1, z2, z3 ∈ C, then (z1 + z2) + z3 = z1 + (z2 + z3) Distributive law for addition: If z1, z2, z3 ∈ C, then z1 +( z2 + z3) = z1z2 + z1z3

b + ib, then a = r cosθ, b = r sinθ, where r = a 2 + b2 = OP and θ = tan–1 . r is a

called modulus of the complex number z and is written |z| and q is called argument or amplitude of z, written as arg(z) or amp(z). Therefore, r = |z| =

x3 ≥ 0 94 | Higher Mathematics Booklet . F = 151 ∴ Median = l + 2 N −F 60. f ×h ⇒ Median = 150 + 195 − 151 × 10 = 153.5275 = 2. 2 2 The cumulative frequency just greater than ∴ 59. ∴ x1 + x2 + 10x3 ≥ 1 Similarly. Therefore. b For the given data. 46 lies in the class 40-50.8 116 Let the daily diet consist of x litres of milk. The difference between two consecutive values is h = 125 – 115 = 10. Required sum = f1 + f2 = 79. h = 10. x2 kg of beef and x3 dozen of eggs. 58. a Here we are given the mid-values. x2. So the lower limit of a class = mid-value – 57. x3 which minimize z = 15x1 + 75x2 + 20x 3 subject to x1 + x2 + 10x3 ≥ 1 100x1 + 10x2 + 10x3 ≥ 50 10x 1 + 100x 2 = 10x 3 ≥ 10 and x1. ∴ Total cost per day is Rs. So we should first find the upper and lower limits of various classes.56. MD = 6 25 48 72 116 60 38 22 3 N = Σfi = 390 ∑ f | X − X | = 226.45 in.92 in. Hence. b h . σ = ∑ f(X − X)2 N = 8. ∴ l = 40. f1 = 34 and f2 = 45. x2. So 40-50 is the median class.26 N 100 in We have N = 390. total amount of vitamins B and C is the daily diet 100x1 + 10x2 + 10x3 ≥ 50 and 10x1 + 100x2 + 10x3 ≥ 10 Hence.50 = 2. ∴ l = 150. h = 10. N = 195 is 267 and the corresponding class is 2 150 – 160. then f2 = 45. and 2 upper limit = Mid-value + h 2 Cumulative frequency 6 31 79 151 267 327 365 387 390 Let the frequency of the class 30-40 is f1 and that of 50-60 is f2. So 150-160 is the median class. Therefore. f = 65 and F = 12 + 30 + f1 = 42 + f1.45 in. X = 67. z = 15x1 + 75x2 + 20x3 Total amount of vitamin A in the daily diet is x1 + x2 + 10x3 mg which should be at least equal to 1 mg. d X = 67. The total frequency is 229. ∴ 12 + 30 + f1 + 65 + f2 + 25 + 18 = 229 ⇒ f1 + f2 = 79 Median = 46 Clearly. f = 116. N = 229. the linear programming formulation to this diet problem is as follows: Find x1. N 390 = = 195.
