Question 11.

Let A = {1, 2 , 3, ………., 9} and R be relation in A × A defined by (a, b) R (c, d) if a + d = b + c for (a, b), (c, d) in A × A. Prove that R is an equivalence relation. Also obtain the equivalence class [(2, 5)]. [4]

Solution:

Here, A = {1, 2, 3, ………, 9} and R is a relation on A × A defined by

(a, b) R (c, d) ⇔ a + d = b + c ∀ a, b, c, d ϵ A

(i ∀(a, b) ϵ A × A

a + b = b + a

⇒ (a, b) R (a, b) ∀ (a, b) ϵ A × A

⇒ R is reflexive on A.

(ii) Let (a, b) R (c, d)

⇒ a + d = b + c

⇒ b + c = a + d

⇒ c + b = d + a

⇒ (c, d) R (a, b)

⇒ R is symmetric on A.

(iii) Let (a, b) R (c, d) and (c, d) R (e,f)

⇒ a + d = b + c and c + f = d + e

⇒ (a + d) + (c + f) = (b + c) + (d + e)

⇒ a + f = b + e

⇒ (a, b) R (e, f)

⇒ R is transitive on A.

Hence R is an equivalence relation on A.

Also equivalence class [(2, 5)]

= {(a, b) ϵ A × A | (2, 5) R (a, b)}

= {(a, b) ϵ A × A | 2 + b = 5 + a}

= {(a, b) ϵ A × A | b = a + 3}

= {(a, a+ 3) | a ϵ A).

(a) strictly increasing

(b) strictly decreasing

Solution:

Here

f(x) = 3x^{4} – 4x^{3} – 12x^{2} + 5

⇒ f'(x) = 12x^{3} – 12x^{2} – 24x

= 12x (x^{2} – x – 2)

= 12x [x^{2} – 2x + x – 2]

= 12x[x(x – 2) + 1(x – 2)]

= 12x (x + 1) (x – 2)

Question 23.

Two schools P and Q want to award their selected students on the values of Discipline, Politeness and Punctuality. The school P wants to award ₹ x each, ₹ y each and ₹ z each for the three respective values to its 3, 2 and 1 students with a total award money of ₹ 1,000. School Q wants to spend ₹ 1,500 to award its 4, 1 and 3 students on the respective values (by giving the same award money for the three values as before). If the total amount . of awards for one prize on each value is ₹ 600, using matrices, find the award money for each value.

Apart from the above three values, suggest one more value for awards. [6]

Solution:

The awards for Discipline, Politeness and Punctuality is ₹ x, ₹ y and ₹ z respectively. According to question,

3x + 2y + z = 1,000

4x + y + 3z = 1,500

x + y + z = 600

The given equation can be written in matrix form,

AX = B …(i)

A part from the three values, Discipline, Politeness and Punctuality, another value for award, should be Hard Work.

Find the distance between the point (7, 2, 4) and the plane determined by the points A (2, 5, – 3), B (- 2, – 3, 5) and C (5, 3, – 3). [6]

Solution:

The plane passing through A (2, 5, – 3) is

a(x – 2) + b(y – 5) + c(z + 3) = 0 …(i)

It passes through B (- 2, – 3, 5) and C (5, 3, – 3);

So -4a – 8b + 8c = 0 …(ii)

3a – 2b + 0c = 0 …(iii)

Solving equation (ii) and (iii), we get

OR

Question 28.

A dealer in rural area wishes to purchase a number of sewing machines. He has only ₹ 5,760 to invest and has space for at most 20 items for storage. An electronic sewing machine cost him ₹ 360 and a manually operated sewing machine ? 240. He can sell an electronic sewing machine at a profit of ₹ 22 and a manually operated sewing machine at a profit of ₹ 18. Assuming that he can sell all the items that he can buy, how should he invest his money in order to maximize his profit ? Make it as a LPP and solve it graphically. [6]

Solution:

Let the dealer buy x electronic and y manually operated sewing machines. The LPP is Maximize

Z = 22x + 18y

Subject to constraints:

x + y ≤ 20

∴ The feasible region is OCPAO which is shaded in the figure.

The vertices of the feasible region are O (0, 0), C (16, 0), A (0, 20).

P is the point of intersection of the lines :

x + y = 20 and 3x + 2y = 48.

Solving these equations, we get point P (8, 12). The value of objective function Z = 22x + 18y at these vertices are as follows :

∴ The maximum profit is ₹ 392 when 8 electronic and 12 manually operated machines are purchased.

E_{1} = the missing card is a heart card

E_{2} = the missing card is a spade card

E_{3} = the missing card is a club card

E_{4} = the missing card is a diamond card
