### CBSE Previous Year Question Papers Class 12 Maths 2014 Outside Delhi Set I

**Section – A**

Question 1.

If R = [(x, y): x + 2y = 8] is a relation on N, write the range of R. [1]

Solution:

The given relation on N is

R = [(x, y): x + 2y = 8]

Since both x, y ϵ N

x can take values 2, 4, 6 for other values of y ϵ N.

For x = 2, 2 + 2y = 8

⇒ y = 3

For x = 4, 4 + 2y = 8

⇒ y = 2

For x = 6, 6 + 2y = 8

⇒ y = 1

∴ R = {(2, 3), (4, 2), (6, 1)}

∴ The range of R = Set of second element’s

= {1, 2, 3}.

Question 3.

If A is a square matrix such that A^{2} = A, then write the value of 7A – (I + A)^{3}, where I is an identity matrix. [1]

Solution:

7A – (I + A)^{3} = 7A – (I^{3} + A^{3} + 3I^{2}A + 3IA^{2})

[ ∵ (a + b)^{3} = a^{3} + b^{3} + 3a^{2}b + 3ab^{2}]

= 7A – (I + A^{2}. A + 3IA + 3IA^{2}) [ v I^{n} = I ∀ n ϵ N]

= 7A – (I + A^{2} + 3A + 3IA) [∵ A^{2} = A, IA = A]

= 7A – (I + A + 3A + 3A)

= 7A – 1 – 7A = -1.

= f(x) (Let)

Question 23.

Two schools A and B want to award their selected students on the values of sincerity, truthfulness and helpfulness. The school A wants to award ₹ x each, ₹ y each and ₹ z each for the three respective values to 3, 2 and 1 students respectively with a total award money of ₹ 1,600. School B wants to spend ₹ 2,300 to award its 4,1 and 3 students on the respective values (by giving the same award money to the three values as before). If the total amount of award for one prize on each value is ₹ 900, using matrices, find the award money for each value. Apart from these three values, suggest one more value which should be considered for award. [6]

Solution:

Given the awards for sincerity, truthfulness and helpfulness are ₹ x, ₹ y and ₹ z respectively.

3x + 2y + z = 1,600

4x + y + 3z = 2,300

x + y + z = 900

The given equation can be written in matrix form,

AX = B …(i)

Apart from the three values, sincerity, truthfulness and helpfulness, another value for award should be discipline

Question 27.

Find the equation of the plane through the line of intersection of the planes x + y + z = 1 and 2x + 3y + 4z = 5 which is perpendicular to the plane x – y + z = 0. Also find the distance of the plane obtained above, from the origin. [6]

Solution:

Equation of any plane through the line of intersection of the planes.

x + y + z – 1 = 0

and 2x + 3y + 4z – 5=0

x + y + z – 1 + λ(2x + 3y + 4z – 5) = 0

⇒ (1 + 2λ)x + (1 + 3λ)y + (1 + 4λ)z – (1 + 5λ) = 0 ……(i)

This plane is perpendicular to the plane

x – y + z = 0

∴ (1 + 2λ). 1 + (1 + 3λ)(- 1) + (1 + 4λ). 1 = 0

⇒ 1 + 2λ – 1 – 3λ + 1 + 4λ = 0

OR

Question 28.

A manufacturing company makes two types of teaching aids A and B of Mathematics for class XII. Each type of A requires 9 labour hours of fabricating and 1 labour hour for finishing. Each type of B requires 12 labour hours for fabricating and 3 labour hours for finishing. For fabricating and finishing, the maximum labour hours available per week are 180 and 30 respectively. The company makes a profit of ‘ 80 on each piece of type A and ₹ 120 on each piece of type B. How many pieces of type A and type B should be manufactured per week to get a maximum profit ? Make it as an LPP and solve graphically. What is the maximum profit per week ? [6]

Solution:

Let x and y be the number of teaching aids of type A and B respectively. Then the LPP is

Maximize Z = 80x + 120y Subject to constraints:

9x + 12y ≤ 180

x + 3y ≤ 30

and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0,

First we draw the lines AB and CD whose equations are

9x + 12y = 180

⇒ 3x + 4y = 60 …(i)

The feasible region is OAPDO which is shaded in the figure.

The vertices of the feasible region are O (0, 0), A (20, 0), P(12, 6) and D (0, 10)

The value of objective function Z = 80x + 120y as follows :

∴ The profit is maximum at P(12, 6) i.e., when the teaching aids of types A and B are 12 and 6 respectively.

Also maximum profit = ₹ 1680 per week.

Question 29.

There are three coins. One is a two-headed coin (having head on both faces), another is a biased coin that comes up heads 75% of the times and third is also a biased coin that comes up tails 40% of the times. One of the three coins is chosen at random and tossed, and it shows heads. What is the probability that it was the two-headed coin ? [6]

Solution:

Let A be the two headed coin, B be the biased coin showing up heads 75% of the times and C be the biased coin showing up tails 40% (i.e., showing up heads 60%) of the times.

Let E_{1}, E_{2} and E_{3} be the events of choosing coins of the type A, B, C respectively. Let S be the event of getting a head. Then,
