Case Study – 1

Republic Day is our National festival celebrated on 26th January every year. On this day our constitution came into existence. In schools, parade forms an integral part of the Republic Day Celebration.

On this occassion of a march past drill need to be conducted in the scheme. On this the students were made to be stand in a way such that, there are 32 students in the first row, 30 in the second row, 28 in the third row and so on.

(A) The given sequence of students forms am A.P. then in which row there are 12 students standing? (2)

Question 14.

Case Study – 2

D.P.S. school Agra is going to organise their annual function, in which many cultural activities along with a prize distribution ceremony will be organised. Along with the certificates, students who excel in various fields will also be given a momento.

A momento is need to be presented to the students for their excellence in punctuality, hard work and academics performances. This momento is in the shape of a right angled triangle inscribing a circle, such that the sides of right – angled triangle are tangents to the circle.

Here, AB = 8 cm, and BC=6 cm and r is the radius of the circle.

Now answer the following questions:

(A) If the circle inside the momento is of radius r then what is its radius. (2)

(B) What is the length of the side AP in ∆ABC? (2)
