Question 13.

Case Study—1

Time is of the essence in human life. Time and tide waits for none, which means that just like tide even time does not wait for anyone. Shweta was very particular in her work and fond of buying new-new watches and clock. She went to a gift shop in which she saw a beautiful clock.

This table clock reminded Shweta of a particular shape in which a circle is inscribed inside a triangle And sides of a triangle are touching the circle as the tangents to the circle.

In the given figure, PA = 4 cm, BP = 3 cm and AC = 11 cm.

Now, answer the following question:

(A) In the given figure, calculate the length of side RC. (2)

(B) If O is the centre of the circle and length of OB is 5 cm, then what is the radius of the circle? (2)

Question 14.

Case Study—2

Akshay is a fitness freak and great athlete. He always want to make his nation proud by winning medals and prizes in the athletic activities.

An upcoming activity for athletes was going to be organised by Railways. Akshay want to participate in 200 m race. He can currently run that distance in 51 seconds. But he wants to increase his speed, so to do it in 31 seconds. With each day of practice it takes him 2 seconds less.

(A) He wants to makes his best time as 31 sec. in how many days will be able to achieve his target? (2)

(B) What will be the difference between the time taken on 5th day and 7th day. (2 )
