Differentiating with respect to

Differentiating with respect to

Hence the perimeter is maximum when

Therefore

Therefore is a square with side of

Question 6:

, Therefore

Question 7:

(a) Given that the observations are: . Find the two lines of regression and estimate the value of when . [5]

(b) In a contest the competitors are awarded marks out of 20 by two judges. The scores of the 10 competitors are given below. Calculate Spearman’s rank correlation. [5]

Competitors | ||||||||||

Judge A | ||||||||||

Judge B |

Answer:

(a)

(b)

Judge A | Judge B | Rank | Rank | ||

Question 8:

(a) An urn contains 2 white and 2 black balls. A ball is drawn at random. If it is white, it is not replaced into the urn. Otherwise, it is replaced with another ball of the same color. The process is repeated. Find the probability that the third ball drawn is black. [5]

(b) Three person shoot to hit a target. If hits the target 4 times out of 5 trials, hits it 3 times in 4 trials and hits is 2 times in 3 trials, find the probability that:

(i) Exactly two person hit the target.

(ii) At least two person hit the target.

(iii) Non hit the target. [5]

Answer:

(a) Please note: The number of balls in the urn change based on what color is drawn.

Every time you get a Black ball, not only the ball is put back in the urn, another black ball is put in the urn. So the number of balls increase every time you pull a black ball.

In case you draw a white ball, it is not put back in the urn. So the number of balls decrease when you pull white ball.

Therefore the probability that the third ball is black is:

(i) Probability of at least two hitting the target

(ii) At least two people hit the target

(iii) None hit the target

Question 9:

(b) Solve the differential equation:

Answer:

… … … … … (i)

Now we know that the equation of a circle with center and radius is of the form

Therefore (i) can be written as

Substitute

and we get

**Section – B (20 Marks)**

Question 10:

**(a)** Using vectors, prove that an angle in a semicircle is a right angle. ** [5]**

(b) Find the volume of a parallelopiped whose edges are represented by the vectors: **[5]**

Answer:

(a) In the adjoining diagram, we have a circle with center (origin) and the vertices of the triangle are and is the diameter.

Let

Therefore

(since is the radius)

Therefore is a right angle.

(b) The volume of a parallelopiped:

Question 11:

(a) Find the equation of the plane passing through the intersection of the planes and and the point . ** [5]**

(b) Find the shortest distance between the lines and ** [5]**

Answer:

(a) Given planes and and the point

The equation of a line passing through the intersection of the plans is given as

Hence the equation of line will be

(b)

Hence the shortest distance units

Question 12:

(a) contains white and black balls. contains white and black balls and contains white and black balls. A dice having red, yellow and green face, is thrown to select a box. If red face turns up we pick , if yellow face turns up we pick otherwise we pick . The we draw a ball from a selected box. If the ball drawn is white, what is the probability that the dice had turned up with a Red face. **[5]**

(b) 5 dices are thrown simultaneously. If the occurrence of an odd number in a single die is considered a success, find the probability of maximum three successes. ** [5]**

Answer:

Let D be the probability of drawing a White ball. Therefore

Therefore the probability of white ball drawn when red face show up:

(b) Number of dice

**Section – C (20 Marks)**

Question 13:

(a) Mr. Nirav borrowed from the bank for years. The rate of interest is per annum compounded monthly. Find the payment he makes if he pays back at the beginning of each month. ** [5]**

(b) A dietitian wishes to mix two kinds of food and in such a way that the mixture contains at least units of vitamin , units of vitamin and units of vitamin . The vitamin contents of one kg of food is given below:

Food | Vitamin A | Vitamin B | Vitamin C |

X | 1 unit | 2 units | 3 units |

Y | 2 units | 2 units | 1 unit |

One kg of food costs and one kg of food costs . Using linear programming, find the least cost of the total mixture which will contain the required vitamins. ** [5]**

Answer:

(a) Principal

Annual rate of interest Monthly rate of interest

Hence monthly installment

(b) Let us say we have kgs of food and kgs of food .

Therefore we have the following inequations:

Now lets plot these lines. We got the following graph

We have to minimize

Hence the four point of intersection from the graph are:

Hence, the should be bought.

Question 14:

(a) A bill of was drawn on 8th March 2013, at months. It was discounted on 18th May, 2013 and the holder of the bill received . What is the rate of interest charged by the bank? ** [5]**

(b) The average cost function, for a commodity is given by in terms of output . Find:

(i) The total cost, and marginal cost, as a function of

(ii) The outputs for which increases. ** [5] **

Answer:

(a) Face value of the bill

Discounted value of the bill

Banker’s discount

Nominal date due is 8th October

Legal due date of the bill is 11th October (3 days of grace period)

Number of unexpired days from 8th May to 11th October is 146 days

Banker’s discount

(b)

Case 1:

Case 2:

But cannot be negative. Therefore

Hence the average cost function increase if the output
