Find the value of ‘a’ for which (x – 1) is a factor of the polynomial a2x3– 4ax + 4a – 1. Sol. Let p(x) = a2 x3 – 4ax + 4a – 1 Since, (x – 1) is a factor of p(x), therefore, p(1) = 0 [∵ x – 1 = 0 ⇒ x = 1] ⇒ a2 (1)3 – 4a (1) + 4a –1 = 0 ⇒ a2 – 4a + 4a –1 = 0 ⇒ a2 = 1 ⇒ a = ± 1 12. In the figure, if AC = BD, show that AB = CD. State the Euclid’s postulate/axiom used for the same. Sol. We have, AC = BD ⇒ AC – BC = BD – BC [Subtracting BC from both sides] ⇒ AB = CD The Euclid’s axiom used here is : ‘If equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are equals’. 13. In the figure, find the value of x. OR In the figure ABCDE is a regular pentagon. Find the relation between ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ Sol. ∠CBD = 40° + 30° = 70° [Exterior angle property] x = ∠CED = ∠CBD + ∠BDE = 70° + 45° = 115° . OR ABCD is a regular pentagon. We know that each side as well as each angle of a regular polygon are equal. So, ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = ∠D = ∠E ... (i) AB = BC = CD = DE = AE ... (ii) In ΔABE, ∠a = ∠3 [AB = AE] ... (iii) Also, ∠a + ∠3 + ∠A = 180° [Angle sum property of ΔABE] ⇒ 2∠a = 2 ∠3 = 180° – ∠A [From (iii)] ⇒ ∠a = ∠3 = 90° – ∠A 2 ... (iv) Similarly, in ΔBCD, ∠1 = ∠2 = 90° – ∠C 2 = 90° – ∠A 2 ... (v) [From (i)] ∠1 = ∠2 = ∠3 = ∠a. ... (vi) (From (iv) and (v)] Also, ∠C + ∠1 = ∠A [From (i) D B A C4 Mathematics IX ( Term -I) and ∠3 + ∠b + ∠2 = ∠A. [From (i) ⇒ ∠C + ∠1 = ∠3 + ∠b + ∠2 ⇒ ∠C + ∠1 = ∠a + ∠b + ∠1 [From (vi)] ⇒ ∠C = ∠a + ∠b Hence, c = a + b. 14. In the figure, ABC is an equilateral triangle. The coordinates of vertices B and C are (3, 0) and (– 3, 0) respectively. Find the coordinates of its vertex A. Sol. From the figure, length of side BC = 6 units Since, ABC is an equilateral triangle. ∴ AB = BC = CA = 6 units Now, AO is perpendicular bisector of BC. Therefore, AOB is a right angled triangle in which AB = 6 units and OB = 3 units ∴ AO2 = AB2 – OB2 [Using Phythagoras theorem] = (6)2 – (3)2 = 27 ⇒ AO = 3 3 units Hence, coordinates of vertex A = (0, 3 3 ).

Factorise the following : 12(x2 + 7x)2 – 8(x2 + 7x) (2x – 1) – 15(2x – 1)2 Sol. Let x2 + 7x = p and 2x – 1 = q. Then, 12(x2 + 7x)2 – 8(x2 + 7x) (2x – 1) – 15(2x – 1)2 = 12p2 – 8pq – 15q2 = 12p2 – 18pq + 10pq –15q2 = 6p (2p – 3q) + 5q (2p – 3q) = (6p + 5q) (2p – 3q) = [6 (x2 + 7x) + 5 (2x – 1)] [2 (x2 + 7x) – 3 (2x – 1)] [Substituting the values of p and q] = (6x2 + 42x + 10x – 5) (2x2 + 14x – 6x + 3) = (6x2 + 52x – 5) (2x2 + 8x + 3) 18. Show that 2 and – 13 are the zeroes of the polynomial 3x3 – 2x2 – 7x – 2. [3] Also, find the third zero of the polynomial. Sol. Let p(x) = 3x3 – 2x2 – 7x – 2 If 2 is a zero of p(x), then p(2) = 0 So, p(2) = 3(2)3 – 2(2)2 – 7 × 2 – 2 = 3 × 8 – 2 × 4 – 7 × 2 – 2 = 24 – 8 – 14 – 2 = 0 Hence, 2 is a zero of the given polynomial. Similarly, if 1 3 is a zero of p(x), then p 1 3 ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ = 0 So, p 1 3 ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ = 3 1 3 2 1 3 7 1 3 2 3 2 ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ = 3 1 27 2 19 73 2 ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟+ = 1 9 29 73 2 + = 1 2 21 18 9 09 0 + = = Hence, 1 3 is also a zero of the given polynomial. Since, 2 and 1 3 are the zeroes of p (x), therefore,Mathematics IX ( Term -I) 7 x – 2 and x + 13 are the factors of p (x). ⇒ (x – 2) x + ⎛⎝ ⎜ ⎞⎠ ⎟ 13 is a factor of p (x) ⇒ (x – 2) (3x + 1) is a factor of p (x) ⇒ 3x2 – 5x –2 is a factor of p (x) Now, the third zero of p(x) can be found out by dividing p(x) by 3x2 – 5x – 2. So, Thus, x + 1 is also a factor of p (x) i.e., x = –1 is the third zero of p (x). 19. In the figure, l || m || n and a ⊥ l.

We have, a ⊥ l ⇒ a ⊥ n [If a line is ⊥ to one of the given || lines, then it is also ⊥ to the other lines] ⇒ ∠AEF = 90° ⇒ z + 55° = 90° ⇒ z = 90° – 55° = 35°. Also m || n and DE is a transversal. Therefore, y + 55° = 180° [Co-interior angles on the same side of a transversal are supplementary] ⇒ y = 180° – 55° ⇒ y = 135°. Now, l || m and BD is a transversal. Therefore, x and y are corresponding angles. ⇒ x = y [Corresponding angles between two || lines are equal] ⇒ x = 135° Hence, x = 135°, y = 135° and z = 35°. 3 –5 –2 x x 2 x + 1 3 –2 –7 –2 x x x 3 2 3 –5 –2 x x x 3 2 – + + 3 –5 –2 x x 2 3 –5 –2 x x 2 – + + 0 l m n a A E B z 55° y x F CD8 Mathematics IX ( Term -I) S T R Q P OR We have, l || m and AC is a transversal. Therefore, x + 100° = 180° [Co-interior angles on the same side of a transversal are supplementary] ⇒ x = 180° – 100° = 80° Also, sum of all angles on the same side of a line is 180°. Therefore, 30° + y + 20° = 180° ⇒ y + 50° = 180° ⇒ y = 180° – 50° = 130° Now, y + x = 130° + 50° = 210° And, y – x = 130° – 80° = 50° ∴ (y + x) : (y – x) = 210° : 50° = 21 : 5. 20. In the figure, DE || BC and MF || AB. Find (i) ∠ADE + ∠MEN (ii) ∠BDE (iii) ∠BLE Sol. (i) We have, DE || BC and BD is a transversal. Therefore, ∠ADE = ∠DBC [Corresponding angles] ⇒ ∠ADE = 40° Now, MF || AB and DE is a transversal. Therefore ∠DEL = ∠ADE [Alternate angles] ⇒ ∠DEL = 40° Also, ∠MEM = ∠DEL [Vertically opposite angles] ⇒ ∠MEN = 40° Hence, ∠ADE + ∠MEN = 40° + 40° = 80°. (ii) DE || BC and BD is a transversal. Therefore, ∠DBC + ∠BDE = 180° [Co-interior angles on the same side of a transversal are supplementary] ⇒ 40° + ∠BDE = 180° ⇒ ∠BDE = 180° – 40° = 140° Hence, ∠BDE = 140° (iii) Again MF || AB and BL is a transversal. Therefore, ∠DBL + ∠BLE = 180° [Co-interior angles on the same side of a transversal are supplementary] ⇒ 40° + ∠BLE = 180° ⇒ ∠BLE = 180° – 40° = 140° Hence, ∠BLE = 140°. 21. In the figure, PS is bisector of ∠QPR and PT ⊥ RQ. Show that ∠TPS = 12 ( ∠R – ∠Q). Sol. Since, PS is the bisector of ∠QPR. Therefore, ∠QPS = ∠SPR ........... (i) Now, in ΔPTR, we have, ∠PRT + ∠TPR + ∠PTR = 180° [Angle sum property of a triangle]Mathematics IX ( Term -I) 9 50° 20° F G P E H D B C A ⇒ ∠PRT + ∠TPR + 90° = 180° ⇒ ∠PRT + ∠TPR = 90° ⇒ ∠PRT = 90° – ∠TPR ⇒ ∠R = 90° – ∠TPR .......... (ii) Also, in ΔPQT, we have ∠PQT + ∠PTQ + ∠QPT = 180° [Angle sum property of a triangle] ⇒ ∠PQT + 90° + ∠QPT = 180° ⇒ ∠PQT + ∠QPT = 90° ⇒ ∠PQT = 90° – ∠QPT ⇒ ∠Q = 90° – ∠QPT .......... (iii) Subtracting (iii) from (ii), we get ∠R – ∠Q = (90° – ∠TPR) – (90° – ∠QPT) = ∠QPT – ∠TPR = (∠TPS + ∠QPS) – (∠SPR – ∠TPS) = ∠TPS + ∠QPS – ∠QPS + ∠TPS = 2∠TPS [∵ ∠QPS = ∠SPR using (i)] Hence, ∠R – ∠Q = 2∠TPS or, ∠TPS = 12 (∠R – ∠Q) Proved. 22. In the figure, ΔABC and ΔABD are such that AD = BC, ∠1 = ∠2 and ∠3 = ∠4. Prove that BD = AC. Sol. We have, ∠1 = ∠2 ........... (i) and ∠3 = ∠4 ........... (ii) Adding (i) and (ii), we get ∠1 + ∠3 = ∠2 + ∠4 ⇒ ∠BAD = ∠ABC Now, in ΔABD and ΔBAC AD = BC [Given] ∠BAD = ∠ABC [Proved above] AB = AB [Common] ∴ By SAS congruency ΔABD ≅ ΔBAC Hence, by CPCT, BD = AC. Proved 23. In the figure, AB || CD. If ∠BAE = 50° and ∠AEC = 20°, find ∠DCE. Sol. Draw GAF || PC. Now, GA || PE and AE is a transversal. Therefore, ∠GAE = ∠AEC [Alternate angles] ⇒ ∠GAE = 20° Also, ∠BAG = ∠BAE – ∠GAE = 50° – 20° = 30° Again, AB || DH and AH is a transversal. Therefore, ∠DHA = ∠BAG [Corresponding angles] D C B A1 3 4 2 E10 Mathematics IX ( Term -I) ⇒ ∠DHA = 30° Since, GH || PC and HC is a transversal. Therefore, ∠DCE = ∠DHA [Corresponding angles] ⇒ ∠DCE = 30°. 24. Find the area of a triangle whose perimeter is 180 cm and two of its sides are 80 cm and 18 cm . Also calculate the altitude of the triangle corresponding to the shortest side. Sol. Let a = 80 cm, and b = 18 cm be two of the given sides of the triangle. Also, let c be its third side. Then, Perimeter of the triangle = a + b + c ⇒ 180 cm = 80 cm + 18 cm + c ⇒ c = 180 cm – 98 cm = 82 cm Now, a2 + b2 = (80)2 + (18)2 = 6400 + 324 = 6724 = (82)2 Therefore, a2 + b2 = c2 Hence, the given triangle is a right angled triangle ∴ Area of ΔABC = 12 × base × corresponding altitude = 12 × 80 × 18 cm2 = 720 cm2 Also, AC is the shortest side, therefore its corresponding altitude is BC. Thus, the length of the altitude corresponding to the shortest side is 80 cm. SECTION D (Question numbers 25 to 34 carry 4 marks each) 25. If x = 1 2 3, find the value of x3– 2x2 – 7x + 5.

(i) And, remainder when q (x) is divided by (x – 2) = B ⇒ q (2) = B ⇒ (2)3 + a (2)2 – 12 × 2 + 6 = B ⇒ 8 + 4a – 24 + 6 = B ⇒ 4a – 10 = B ........ (ii) Substituting the values of A and B in 2A + B = 6, we get 2 (5a – 6) + 4a – 10 = 6 ⇒ 10a – 12 + 4a – 10 = 6 ⇒ 14a – 22 = 6 ⇒ 14a = 28 ⇒ a = 2. 30. From the figure, find the coordinates of the points A, B, C, D, E and F. Which of the points are mirror images in (i) x-axis (ii) y-axis. Sol. Coordinates of A = (2, 2) Coordinates of B = (1, 4) Coordinates of C = (5, 5) Coordinates of D = (–1, 4) Coordinates of E = (2, – 2) Coordinates of F = (–5, –5) From the figure, it is clear that point E is the mirror image of point A in the x-axis.14 Mathematics IX ( Term -I) And, point D is the mirror image of point B in the y-axis. 31. In the figure, QT ⊥ PR, ∠TQR = 40° and ∠SPR = 30°. Find the values of x, y and z. Sol. In ΔQTR, we have ∠QTR = 90° [∵ QT ⊥ PR] ∴ By angle sum property of a triangle ∠TQR + ∠QTR + ∠QRT = 180° ⇒ 40° + 90° + x = 180° ⇒ 130° + x = 180° ⇒ x = 180° – 130° = 50° Now, in ΔPSR ∠PSQ = ∠SPR + ∠PRS [By exterior angle property] ⇒ y = 30° + 50° [∵ ∠PRS = x = 50°] ⇒ y = 80° Similarly, z = 40° + y ⇒ z = 40° + 80° = 120° Therefore, x = 50°, y = 80° and z = 120°. 32. In the figure, ABCD is a square and EF is parallel to diagonal BD and EM = FM. Prove that (i) DF = BE (ii) AM bisects ∠BAD. Sol. In ΔBCD (i) BC = CD [Sides of a square] ⇒ ∠2 = ∠4 [Angles opp. to equal sides are also equal]......... (i) Also, ∠1 = ∠2 [Corresponding angles, since EF || BD] ......... (ii) And, ∠3 = ∠4 [Same reason] ......... (iii) From (i), (ii) and (iii) we get, ∠1 = ∠3 Now, in ΔCEF ∠1 = ∠3 ⇒ CE = CF [Sides opp. to equal angles are also equal] ⇒ BC – BE = CD – DF ⇒ BE = DF (∵ BC = CD) Proved. (ii) In ΔADF and ΔABE AD = AB [Sides of a square] ∠ADF = ∠ABE [Each = 90°] DF = BE [Proved above] ∴ By SAS congruency, ΔADF ≅ ΔABE Hence, by CPCT, AF = AE and ∠5 = ∠6 Again, in ΔAMF and ΔAME AF = AE [Proved above] FM = EM [Given] 40° 30° z T x y P R Q S D A F M C E B D A F M C E B 2 578 6 1 3 4Mathematics IX ( Term -I) 15 AM = AM [Common] ∴ By SSS congruency, ΔAMF ≅ ΔAME Hence by CPCT, ∠7 = ∠8 ⇒ ∠7 + ∠5 = ∠8 + ∠6 [∵ ∠5 = ∠6] ⇒ ∠MAD = ∠MAB ⇒ AM bisects ∠BAD Proved. 33. In the figure, AB = BC, ∠A = ∠C and ∠ABD = ∠CBE. Prove that CD = AE. Sol. We have, ∠ABD = ∠CBE [Given] Adding ∠DBE both sides, we get ∠ABD + ∠DBE = ∠CBE + ∠DBE ⇒ ∠ABE = ∠CBD Now, in ΔABE and ΔCBD ∠BAE = ∠BCD [Given] AB = BC [Given] ∠ABE = ∠CBD [Proved above] ∴ By ASA congruency, ΔABE ≅ ΔCBD Hence, by CPCT, CD = AE Proved. 34. In the figure, AB = AC, D is a point in the interior of ΔABC such that ∠DBC = ∠DCB. Prove that AD bisects ∠BAC of ΔABC. Sol. In ΔBCD, we have, ∠DCB = ∠DBC [Given] ⇒ BD = CD [Sides opp. to equal angles are also equal] Now, in ΔABD and ΔACD, AB = AC [Given] AD = AD [Common] BD = CD [Proved above] ∴ By SSS congruency, ΔABD ≅ ΔACD Hence, by CPCT, ∠BAD = ∠CAD ⇒ AD bisects ∠BAC. Proved. B C AD D E A B C
