13. A lighthouse is a tall tower with light near the top. These are often built on islands, coasts or on cliffs. Lighthouses on water surface act as a navigational aid to the mariners and send warning to boats and ships for dangers. Initially wood, coal would be used as illuminators. Gradually it was replaced by candles, lanterns, electric lights. Now a days they are run by machines and remote monitoring.

Prongs Reef lighthouse of Mumbai was constructed in 1874 – 75. It is approximately 40 meters high and its beam can be seen at a distance of 30 kilometres. A ship and a boat are coming towards the lighthouse from opposite directions. Angles of depression of flash light from the lighthouse to the boat and the ship are 30° and 60° respectively.

(i) Which of the two, boat or the ship is nearer to the light house. Find its distance from the lighthouse? [2]

(ii) Find the time taken by the boat to reach the light house if it is moving at the rate of 2 km per hour. [2]

**Case Study – 2**

14. Krishnanagar is a small town in Nadia District of West Bengal. Krishnanagar clay dolls are unique in their realism and quality of their finish. They are created by modelling coils of clay over a metal frame. The figures are painted in natural colours and their hair is made either by sheep’s wool or jute. Artisans make models starting from fruits, animals, God, goddess, farmer, fisherman, weavers to Donald Duck and present comic characters. These creations are displayed in different national and international museums.

Here are a few images (not to scale) of some clay dolls of Krishnanagar.

The ratio of diameters of red spherical apples in Doll-1 to that of spherical oranges in Doll-2 is 2 : 3. In Doll-3, male doll of blue colour has cylindrical body and a spherical head. The spherical head touches the cylindrical body. The radius of both the spherical head and the cylindrical body is 3 cm and the height of the cylindrical body is 8 cm. Based on the above information answer the following questions:

(ii) The blue doll of Doll-3 is melted and its clay is used to make the cylindrical drum of Doll-4. If the radius of the drum Is also 3 cm, find the height of the drum. [2]

**Solution of Sample Paper**

**Section – A**

**1.** 3x^{2} – 7x – 6 = 0

⇒ 3x^{2} – 9x + 2x – 6 = 0 ½

⇒ 3x(x – 3) + 2(x – 3) = 0

⇒ (x – 3)(3x + 2) = 0 ½

∴ x = 3, –⅔ 1

**Detailed Solution:**

3x^{2}– 7x – 6 = 0 (Given)

Using splitting middle term method,

3x^{2} – 9x + 2x – 6 = 0 ½

⇒ 3x(x – 3) + 2(x – 3) = 0

⇒ (3x + 2) (x – 3) = 0 ½

Either 3x + 2 = 0

⇒ x = –⅔

or x – 3 = 0

or x = 3

Hence, 3 or –⅔ are the roots of the quadratic equation. 1

OR

Since the roots are real and equal,

∴ D = b^{2 }– 4ac = 0

⇒ k^{2} – 4 × 3 × 3 = 0 (∴ a = 3, b = k, c = 3) 1

⇒ k^{2 }= 36

⇒ k = 6 or -6 ½ + ½

**Detailed Solution:**

Given: 3x^{2} + kx + 3 = 0

On comparing it with ax^{2} + bx + c = 0

a = 3, b = k, c = 3 1

Since, roots are real and equal.

⇒ Discriminant = 0

or b^{2} – 4ac = 0

or (k)^{2 }– 4(3) (3) = 0

or k^{2} – 36 = 0

or k^{2} = 36

or k = ±6

i.e., k = 6 or -6 ½ + ½

**2.** Let l be the side of the cube and L, B, H be the dimensions of the cuboid

Since l^{3} = 64 cm^{3}

∴ l = 4 cm ½

Total surface area of cuboid = 2[LB + BH + HL],

Where L = 12 cm, B = 4 cm and H = 4 cm ½

= 2(12 × 4 + 4 × 4 + 4 × 12) cm^{2}

= 224 cm^{2 } 1

Total frequency (N) = 22

N/2 = 11; ½

So 40 – 60 is the median class

= 40 + (11 – 10)/5 × 20

= 44 runs ½

**4.** The common difference is

9 – 4 = 5 1

If the first term is 6 and common difference is 5, then new AP is, 6,6 + 5,6 + 10…..

= 6,11,16…. 1

**Detailed Solution:**

Since 4, 9, 14. ….. is given in A.P.

⇒ a = 4,

d = 2^{nd} term – 1^{st} term

d = 9 – 4 = 5

Common difference of the given A.P. is 5. 1

If first term is 6 and common difference = 5

i.e., a₁ = 6

a₂ = a + d = 6 + 5 = 11

a_{3} = a + 2d = 6 + 2(5) = 16

∴ New A.P. will be 6, 11, 16… 1

5. ∵ Mode = 38.

∴ The modal class is 30 – 40. ½

½

6.

∵ XY is the tangent to the circle at the point D

∴ OD ⊥ XY

⇒ ∠ODX = 90°

⇒ ∠EDX = 90° ½

Also, MN is the tangent to the circle at E

∴ OE ⊥ MN

⇒ ∠OEN = 90°

⇒ ∠DEN = 90°

⇒ ∠EDX = ∠DEN (each 90°). ½

which are alternate interior angles.

∴ XY || MN 1

**Detailed Solution:**

**Given:** DE is a diameter of the circle with centre O. XY and MN are tangents to the circle at D and E.

**To Prove:** XY || MN.

**Proof:** According to the theorems, Radius is always perpendicular to the tangent at point of contact.

⇒ OD ⊥ XY [OD is the Radius and XY is the tangent]

i.e., ∠ODX = ∠ODY = 90°. ½

Similarly, if OE is the radius and MN is the tangent, then

OE ⊥ MN

i.e., ∠OEN = ∠OEM = 90° ½

∵ ∠ODX = ∠OEN = 90° (Alternate Angles)

Hence, XY || MN.

Proved 1

OR

∵ Tangent segments drawn from an external point to a circle are equal

∴ BP = BQ, CR = CQ, DR = DS, AP = AS

⇒ BP + CR + DR + AP = BQ + CQ + DS + AS 1

⇒ AB + DC = BC + AD

AD = 10 – 7 = 3 cm 1

**Section – B**

7. First term of the A.P. (a) = 5

Common difference (d) = 8 – 5 = 3

Last term = a_{40}

= a + (40 – 1)d

= 5 + 39 x 3 = 122 1

Also a_{31} = a + 30d

= 5 + 30 x 3 = 95 1

Sum of last 10 terms

1

**Detailed Solution:**

5, 8, 11, … is given in A.P. which has 40 terms.

So, first term a = 5,

and common difference d = 8 – 5 = 3

Total terms n = 40

Let the last term be n^{th} term,

a = a + (n – 1)d

∴ a_{40} = 5 + (40 – 1)3

⇒ a_{40} = 5 + (39)3

⇒ a_{40} = 5 + 117

⇒ a_{40} = 122 1

Now, a_{31} = 5 + (31 – 1)3

= 5 + (30)3

= 5 + 90

= 95 1

For last 10 terms,

First term, a’ = a_{31} = 95

Last term, l’ = a_{40} = 122

∴ Sum of last 10 terms

1

8.

OR

Let AB and CD be two poles of height h meters also let P be a point between them on the road which is x meters away from foot of first pole AB, PD = (80 – x) meters.

9. PA = PB (tangents drawn to a circle from an external point are equal)

∴ In △APB, ∠PAB = ∠PBA

Also, ∠APB = 60° 1

In △APB,

∵ sum of three angles is 180°

∠PAB + ∠PBA = 180° – ∠APB

180° – 60° = 120°.

∵ ∠PAB = ∠PBA = 60° ( ∠PAB = ∠PBA) 1

∴ △APB is an equilateral triangle.

Hence, AB= 6 cm. 1

**Detailed Solution:**

It is given that PA = 6 cm and ∠APB = 60°

According to the property that tangents drawn from same external point are equal in length.

∴ PA = PB = 6 cm. 1

⇒ ∠PAB = ∠PBA [Equal sides have equal opposite angles]

In △APB,

According to angle sum property of a triangle.

∠PAB + ∠PBA + ∠APB = 180°

∠PAB + ∠PAB + 60° = 180°

2∠PAB = 180° – 60°

∠PAB = 120°/2 = 60°

∴ ∠APB = ∠PAB 1

= ∠PAB = 60°

So, △APB is an equilateral triangle. In an equitation triangle all sides are equal.

∴ AB = PA = PB = 6 cm

or AB = 6 cm. 1

10. Let the three consecutive multiples of 5 be 5x, 5x + 5, 5x + 10.

Their squares are (5x), (5x + 5)² and (5x + 10).

(5x)² + (5x + 5)² + (5x + 10)² = 725 1

⇒ 25x² + 25x² + 50x + 25 + 25x + 100x + 100 = 725

⇒ 75x² + 150x – 600 = 0

⇒ x² + 2x – 8 = 0

⇒ (x + 4) (x – 2) = 0

⇒ x = -4, 2

⇒ x = 2 (ignoring-ve value) 1

So the numbers are 10, 15 and 20. 1

**Detailed Solution:**

Let first consecutive number = 5x

Second number = 5(x + 1) = 5x + 5

Third number = 5(x + 2) = 5x + 10

According to the question,

(5x)² + (5x + 5)² + (5x + 10)² = 725 1

⇒ 25x² + 25x² + 25 + 50x + 25x² + 100 + 100x =725

⇒ 75x² + 150x + 125 – 725 = 0

⇒ 75(x² + 2x – 8) = 0

or x² + 2x – 8 = 0

x² + 4x – 2x – 8 = 0

⇒ x(x + 4) -2(x + 4) = 0

⇒ (x – 2)(x + 4) = 0

either x – 2 = 0

⇒ x = 2

or x + 4 = 0

x = -4 (ignoring -ve value) 1

1^{st} number = 5x = 5(2) = 10

2^{nd} number = 5x + 5 = 5(2) + 5 = 15

3^{rd} number = 5x + 10

= 5(2) + 10 = 20 1

∴ ∠OPA = ∠OPB = 30°

In right angle △OAP,

2

Hence, the length of the tangent is 6√3 cm.
