Section – C

Question 20.
Consider f : R+ → [- 9, ∞) given by f(x) = 5x2 + 6x – 9. Prove that f is invertible with [6]

Solution:
To prove f is invertible we have to prove that f is one-one and onto.
For one-one
Let x1, x2 ϵ R+, then
f(x1) = f(x2)
⇒ 5x12 + 6x1 – 9 = 5x22 + 6x2 – 9
⇒ 5(x12 – x22) + 6(x1 – x2) = 0
⇒ (x1 – x2) (5x1 + 5x2 + 6) = 0
⇒ x1 – x2 = 0 as 5x1 + 5x2 + 6 ≠ 0
⇒ x1 = x2
i.e., f is one-one function.
For onto
Let f(x) = y
∴ y = 5x2 + 6x – 9
∴ 5x2 + 6x – (9 + y) = 0

OR
A binary operation * is defined on the set x = R – {-1} by x * y = x + y + xy, ∀ x, y ϵ X. Check whether * is commutative and associative. Find its identity element and also find the inverse of each element of X.**

Question 21.
Find the value of p for which the curves x2 = 9p(9 – y) and x2 = p(y + 1) cut each other at right angles. [6]
Solution:
Given,
x2 = 9p(9 – y) …(i)
and x2 = p (y +1) …(ii)
From (i) and (ii), we get
9p (9 – y) = p(y + 1)
⇒ 81p – 9py = py + p
⇒ 10py =80 p
⇒ y = 8
x2 = 9p
Now, differentiating (i) and (ii) w.r.t. x, we get

Question 22.
Using integration, prove that the curves y2 = Ax and x2 = 4y divide the area of the square bounded by x = 0, x = 4, y = 0 and y = 4 into three equal parts. [6]
Solution:
Given,
y2 = Ax …(i)
and x2 = 4y ……(ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get the point of intersection (0, 0) and (4, 4).

From (iii), (iv) and (v), it can be concluded that the given curves divide the area of the square bounded by x = 0, x = 4, y = 0 into three equal parts. Hence Proved.

Question 25.
A company manufactures three kinds of calculators : A, B and C in its two factories I and II. The company has got an order for manufacturing at least 6400 calculators of kind A, 4000 of kind B and 4800 of kind C. The daily output of factory I is of 50 calculators of kind A, 50 calculators of kind B, and 30 calculators of kind C. The daily output of factory II is of 40 calculators of kind A, 20 of kind B and 40 of kind C. The cost perdaytorunfactorylis ₹ 12,000 and of factory II is ₹ 15,000. How many days do the two factories have to be in operation to produce the order with the minimum cost ? Formulate this problem as an LPP and solve it graphically. [6]
Solution:
Let the factories I and II work for x and y number of days respectively.
Thus, the given linear programming problem is Minimize Z = ₹ (12000x + 15000y)
Subject to the constraints
50x + 40y ≥ 6400
50x + 20y ≥ 4000
30x + 40y ≥ 4800
x ≥ 0
and y ≥ 0 .
i.e. 5x + 4y ≥ 640
5x + 2y ≥ 400
3x + 4y ≥ 480
x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0.
To solve this L. P. P,
Let us consider the equations
L1 : 5x + 4y = 640 …(i)
L2 : 5x + 2y = 400 …(ii)
L3 : 3x + 4y = 480 …(iii)
The point of intersection of L1 and L2 is D(32, 120) and that of L1 and L3 is C (80,60)

The shaded region is the solution region of the given L. P. P.

Out of these values of Z, the minimum value of Z is 18,60,000 at x = 80 and y = 60.
Since the feasible region is unbounded so we draw the graph of inequality
12000 x + 15000 y < 1860000
i. e., 4x + 5y ≤ 620

We observe that open half one represented by L have no point common with feasible region.
Z = 12000 × 80 + 15000 × 60
= ₹ 18,60,000.
Hence, the factories I and II work for 80 and 60 number of days respectively.

Question 26.
In a factory which manufactures bolts, machines A, B and C manufacture respectively 30%, 50% and 20% of the bolts. Of their outputs 3, 4 and 1 percent respectively are defective bolts. A bolt is drawn at random from the product and is found to be defective. Find the probability that this is not manufactured by machine B. [6]
Solution:
Let E1, E2, E3 and A be the events defined as below
E1 = the bolt is manufactured by machine A.
E2 = the bolt is manufactured by machine B.
E3 = the bolt is manufactured by machine C.
A = the bolt is defective.
then, P(E1) = Probability that the bolt drawn is manufactured by machine A = $\frac{30}{100}$
P(E2) = Probability that the bolt drawn is manufactured by machine B = $\frac{50}{100}$
P(E3) = Probability that the bolt drawn is manufactured by machine C = $\frac{20}{100}$
P(A/E1) = Probability that the bolt drawn is defective given that it is manufactured by machine A.
