Step 1

Step 1 Step 2 ∠ ABC = 180° - ∠ AEC Step 3 Since ∠ ABC

Step 2

ABC = 180° - AEC

Step 3

Since ABC = ADE ADE = 180° - AEC

[ Opposite angels of cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary ]

[ Opposite angles of parallelogram are equal ]

Step 4

ADE = AED

[ 180° - AEC = AED ]

Step 5

Since ADE is isosceles with angles ADE = AED, AD = AE, therefore AE/AD = 1

v/u

Step 1

Equation of line y = mx + c Since it goes through center, c is 0, hence equation is y = m x

Step 2

For first point x = v and y = wv, hence wv = m v

m = w

Step 3

For second point x = u and y = v, hence v = m u

m = v/u

Step 4

On comparing two equations, w = v/u

Following figure shows the required triangle,

Step 1 Following figure shows the required triangle, Let's assume the sides of the equilateral triangle

Let's assume the sides of the equilateral triangle ΔABC be x.

The area of the triangle ΔABC can be calculated using Heron's formula, since all sides of

the triangles are known.

S = (AB + BC + CA)/2

= (x + x + x)/2

Step 1

We know that a chord subtends the same angle to points on the circumference of the circle that are on the same side Here, we know ADB = ACB Also, in triangle APC, APC + ACP + PAC = 180°

Step 1

Following figure shows the semicircle with the diameter AC,

Following figure shows the semicircle with the diameter AC, According to the question, AB = 2

According to the question, AB = 2 cm and BC = 8 cm. The diameter(AC) of the semicircle = AB + BC

= 2 + 8

= 10 cm

Step 2

Let's draw a line OD from the center of the semicircle, as shown in the following figure,

center of the semicircle, as shown in the following figure, The line OD, OA and OC

The line OD, OA and OC are the radius of the semicircle. Therefore, OD = OA = OC = AC/2

= 10/2

= 5 cm

Now, OB = OA - AB

= 5 - 2

= 3 cm

Step 3

In ΔOBD, OBD = 90°

BD 2 = OD 2 - OB 2 [By the Pythagorean theorem]

BD 2 = 5 2 - 3 2

BD 2 = 16

BD 2 = 4 2

BD = 4 cm

Step 4

Hence, the length of the BD is 4 cm.

Step 2

Between 16 and 54, let us count the prime numbers: 17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53.

Step 3

There are 10 prime numbers, so the answer to the above question will be 10.

Step 1

Equation of line y = m x + c

m

= (2 - c)/-1

Step 3

Substitute second point in the equation

= -3 m + c

m

= (8 - c)/-3

Step 4

On equating value of m from both equations, (2 - c)/-1 = (8 - c)/-3 -6 + 3c = -8 + 1c

2 c = -2

c = -1

Equation of line y = m x + c

Step 2

Substitute first point in the equation

= 3 m + c

m

= (4 - c)/3

(1)

Step 3

Substitute second point in the equation

2

= 2 m + c

m

= (2 - c)/2

(2)

Step 4

On equating value of m from both equations, (4 - c)/3 = (2 - c)/2

8 - 2c = 6 - 3c

1 c = -2 c = -2

Step 5

m = (4 - c)/3 = 2

Step 6

Equation of line : y = 2 x + c

Now when line intersect with x axis, value of y will be 0

0 = 2x + (-2) x = 1

Step 1

Let the number of 3-marks question be x. Then, the number of 4-marks questions = 17 - x.

Step 2

The total marks secured will be equal to: 3x + 4(17 - x) = 68 - x.

Step 3

Total marks secured by Donald = 56. Thus, 68 - x = 56 or, x = 12.

Step 4

The number of 3-marks questions Donald attempted is 12.

Step 1

Let us look at the units digits of a few powers of 7:

7 1 = 7, unit digit is 7

7 2 = 7 × 7 = 49, unit digit is 9

7 3 = 7 × 7 × 7 = 343, unit digit is 3

7 4 = 7 × 7 × 7 × 7 = 2201, unit digit is 1

7 5 = 7 × 7 × 7 × 7 × 7 = 15407, unit digit is 7

Step 2

We can see that the unit digit repeats after the power 4. We can further observe that the unit digit of powers of 7 repeats after every power that is a multiple of 4.

Step 3

Remainder of

759

4

= 3

This means 759 is 3 more than being a perfect multiple of 4.

Step 4

Therefore, the unit digit of (724307) 759 = unit digit of 7 3 , which is 3.

Step 1

The average of 11 numbers is 42, which means the sum of numbers is equal to 42 × 11 =

462.

Step 2

The average of first 5 numbers is 44, which means the sum of first 5 numbers will be 44 × 5 = 220.

Step 3

The average of last 5 numbers is 41, which means sum of last 5 numbers is 41 × 5 = 205.

Step 4

The sum of first and last 5 numbers is 220 + 205 = 425.

Step 5

This means the 5 th number is 462 - 425 = 37.
