**Question 3.**

Let ‘a’ be a non-zero rational number and ‘b’ be an irrational number. Is ‘ab’ necessarily an irrational ? Justify your answer with example.

Solution:

Yes, ‘ab’ is necessarily an irrational.

For example, let a = 2 (a rational number) and b = √2 (an irrational number)

If possible let ab = 2√2 is a rational number.

Now, aba = 22√2 = √2 is a rational number.

[∵ The quotient of two non-zero rational number is a rational]
But this contradicts the fact that √2 is an irrational number.

Thus, our supposition is wrong.

Hence, ab is an irrational number.

**Question 4.**

Let x and y be a rational and irrational numbers. Is x + y necessarily an irrational number? Give an example in support of your answer.

Solution:

Yes, x + y is necessarily an irrational number.

For example, let x = 3 (a rational number) and y = √5 (an irrational number)

If possible let x + y = 3 + √5 be a rational number.

Consider pq = 3 + √5, where p, q ∈ Z and q ≠ 0.

Squaring both sides, we have

∵ pq is a rational

⇒ √5 is a rational

But this contradicts the fact that √5 is an irrational number.

Thus, our supposition is wrong.

Hence, x + y is an irrational number.

**Question 1.**

Represent √3 on the number line.

Solution:

On the number line, take OA = 1 unit. Draw AB = 1 unit perpendicular to OA. Join OB.

Again, on OB, draw BC = 1 unit perpendicular to OB. Join OC.

By Pythagoras Theorem, we obtain OC = √3. Using

compasses, with centre O and radius OC, draw an arc, which intersects the number line at point

D. Thus, OD = √3 and D corresponds to √3.

**Question 2.**

Represent √3.2 on the number line.

Solution:

First of all draw a line of length 3.2 units such that AB = 3.2 units. Now, from point B, mark a distance of 1 unit. Let this point be ‘C’. Let ‘O’ be the mid-point of the distance AC. Now, draw a semicircle with centre ‘O’ and radius OC. Let us draw a line perpendicular to AC passing through the point ‘B’ and intersecting the semicircle at point ‘D’.

∴ The distance BD = √3.2

Now, to represent √3.2 on the number line. Let us take the line BC as number line and point ‘B’ as zero, point ‘C’ as ‘1’ and so on. Draw an arc with centre B and radius BD, which intersects the number line at point ‘E’.

Then, the point ‘E’ represents √3.2.

**Question 3.**

Express 1.32 + 0.35 as a fraction in the simplest form.

Solution:

Let . x = 1.32 = 1.3222…..(i)

Multiplying eq. (i) by 10, we have

10x = 13.222…

Again, multiplying eq. (i) by 100, we have

100x = 132.222… …(iii)

Subtracting eq. (ii) from (iii), we have

100x – 10x = (132.222…) – (13.222…)

90x = 119

⇒ x = 11990

Again, y = 0.35 = 0.353535……

Multiply (iv) by 100, we have …(iv)

100y = 35.353535… (v)

Subtracting (iv) from (u), we have

100y – y = (35.353535…) – (0.353535…)

99y = 35

y = 3599

Solution:

Here,

x = 9 + 4√5

x = 5 + 4 + 2 x 2√5

x = (√5^{2} + (2^{2} + 2 x 2x √5).

x = (√5 + 2)^{2}

√x = √5 + 2

Now, 1x√ = 15√+2

x^{2} – 4x + 4 = 5

x^{2 }– 4x – 1 = 0 …(i)

Now, x^{3} – 3^{2} – 5x + 3 = (x^{2} – 4x – 1) (x + 1) + 4

= 0 (x + 1) + 4 = 4 [using (i)]

**Question 7.**

Find ‘x’, if 2^{x-7} × 5^{x-4} = 1250.

Solution:

We have 2^{x-7} × 5^{x-4} = 1250

⇒ 2^{x-7} × 5^{x-4} = 2 5 × 5 × 5 × 5

⇒ 2^{x-7} × 5^{x-4} = 21 × 54

Equating the powers of 2 and 5 from both sides, we have

⇒ x – 7 = 1 and x – 4 = 4

⇒ x = 8 and x = 8

Hence, x = 8 is the required value.

Solution:

Let f(p) = p^{10} + p^{8} + p^{6} – p^{4} – p^{2} – 1

Put p = 1, we obtain

f(1) = 1^{10} + 1^{8} + 1^{6} – 1^{4} – 1^{2} – 1

= 1 + 1 + 1 – 1 – 1 – 1 = 0

Hence, p – 1 is a factor of p^{10} + p^{8} + p^{6} – p^{4} – p^{2} – 1.

Solution:

We have 3x + 2y = 12

On cubing both sides, we have

⇒ (3x + 2y)^{3} = 12^{3}

⇒ (3x)^{3} +(2y)^{3} + 3 × 3x × 2y(3x + 2y) = √728

⇒ 27x^{3}+ 8y^{3} + 18xy(3x + 2y) = √728

⇒ 27x^{3}+ 8y^{3} + 18 × 6 × 12 = √728

⇒ 27x^{3}+ 8y^{3} + 1296 = √728

⇒ 27x^{3}+ 8y^{3} = √728 – 1296

⇒ 27x^{3}+ 8y^{3} = 432

**Question 5.**

64a^{2} – 27b^{2} – 144a^{2}b + 108ab^{2}

= (4a)^{3} – (3b)^{3} – 36ab(4a – 3b)

= (40)^{2} – (3b)^{3} – 3 × 4a × 3b (4a – 3b)

= (4a – 3b)^{3} [∵ (x – y)^{3} = x^{3} – y^{3} – 3xy(x – y)]

Volume = 12ky^{2} + 8ky – 20k.

Solution:

We have, volume = 12ky^{2} + 8ky – 20k

= 4k(3y^{2} + 2y – 5) = 4k(3y^{2} + 5y – 3y – 5)

= 4k[y(3y + 5) – 1(3y + 5)] = 4k(3y + 5) (y – 1)

∴Possible expressions for the dimensions of cuboid are 4k units, (3y + 5) units and (y – 1) units.

Solution:

Here, p(x) = x^{3}+ 3x^{2} – 2x + 4

Now, p(2) = 2^{3} + 3(2)^{2} – 2(2) + 4

= 8 + 12 – 4 + 4 = 20

p(-2) = (-2)^{3} + 3(-2)^{2} – 21 – 2) + 4

= 8 + 12 + 4 + 4 = 12

and p(0) = 0 + 0 – 0 + 4 = 4

**Question 1.**

Prove that (a + b + c)^{3} – a^{3} – b^{3} – c^{3} = 3(a + b) (b + c) (c + a).

Solution:

L.H.S. = (a + b + c)^{3} – a^{3} – b^{3} – c^{3}

= {(a + b + c)^{3} – 3} – {b^{3} + c^{3}}

= (a + b + c – a) {(a + b + c)^{2} + a^{2} + a(a + b + c)} – (b + c) (b^{2} + c^{2} – bc)

= (b + c) {a^{2} + b^{2} + 2 + 2ab + 2bc + 2ca + a^{2} + a^{2} + ab + ac – b^{2} – a^{2} + bc)

= (b + c) (3a^{2} + 3ab + 3bc + 3ca}

= 3(b + c) {a^{2} + ab + bc + ca}

= 31b + c) {{a^{2} + ca) + (ab + bc)}

= 3(b + c) {a(a + c) + b(a + c)}

= 3(b + c)(a + c) (a + b)

= 3(a + b)(b + c) (c + a) = R.H.S.

**Question 2.**

Factorise : (m + 2n)^{2} x^{2} – 22x (m + 2n) + 72.

Solution:

Let m + 2n = a

∴ (m + 2n)^{2} x^{2} – 22x (m + 2n) + 72 = a^{2}x^{2} – 22ax + 72

= a^{2}x^{2} – 18ax – 4ax + 72

= ax(ax – 18) – 4(ax – 18)

= (ax – 4) (ax – 18)

= {(m + 2n)x – 4)} {(m + 2n)x – 18)}

= (mx + 2nx – 4) (mx + 2nx – 18).

**Question 3.**

If x – 3 is a factor of x^{2} – 6x + 12, then find the value of k. Also, find the other factor of the – polynomial for this value of k.

Solution:

Here, x – 3 is a factor of x^{2} – kx + 12

∴ By factor theorem, putting x = 3, we have remainder 0.

⇒ (3)^{2} – k(3) + 12 = 0

⇒ 9 – 3k + 12 = 0

⇒ 3k = 21

⇒ k = 7

Now, x^{2} – 7x + 12 = x^{2} – 3x – 4x + 12

= x(x – 3) – 4(x – 3)

= (x – 3) (x – 4)

Hence, the value of k is 7 and other factor is x – 4.

**Question 4.**

Find a and b so that the polynomial x^{3}– 10x^{2} + ax + b is exactly divisible by the polynomials (x – 1) and (x – 2).

Solution:

Let p(x) = x^{3}– 10x^{2} + ax + b

Since p(x) is exactly divisible by the polynomials (x – 1) and (x – 2).

∴ By putting x = 1, we obtain

(1)^{3} – 10(1)^{2} + a(1) + b = 0

⇒ a + b = 9

And by putting x = 2, we obtain

(2)^{3} – 10(2)^{2} + a(2) + b = 0

8 – 40 + 2a + b = 0

⇒ 2a + b = 32

Subtracting (i) from (ii), we have

a = 23

From (i), we have 23 + b = 9 = b = -14

Hence, the values of a and b are a = 23 and b = -14

**Question 5.**

Factorise : x^{2} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6.

Solution:

Let p(x) = x^{2} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6

Here, constant term of p(x) is -6 and factors of -6 are ± 1, ± 2, ± 3 and ± 6

By putting x = 1, we have

p(1) = (1)^{3} – 6(1)^{2} + 11(1) – 6 = 1 – 6 + 11 -6 = 0

∴ (x – 1) is a factor of p(x)

By putting x = 2, we have

p(2) = (2)^{3} – 6(2)^{2} + 11(2) – 6 = 8 – 24 + 22 – 6 = 0

∴ (x – 2) is a factor of p(x)

By putting x = 3, we have

p(3) = (3)^{3} – 6(3)^{2} + 11(3) – 6 = 27 – 54 + 33 – 6 = 0

∴ (x – 3) is a factor of p(x) Since p(x) is a polynomial of degree 3, so it cannot have more than three linear factors.

∴ x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6 = k (x – 1) (x – 2) (x – 3)

By putting x = 0, we obtain

0 – 0 + 0 – 6 = k (-1) (-2) (3)

-6 = -6k

k = 1

Hence, x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6 = (x – 1) (x – 2)(x – 3).

**Question 6.**

Show that 13and 43 are zeroes of the polynomial 9×3 – 6×2 – 11x + 4. Also, find the third zero of the polynomial.

Solution:

Let p(x) = 9×3– 6×2 – 11x + 4

Put x = 13, we have

Thus, x = 43 is another zero of the polynomial p(x). Since x = 13 and x = 43 are the zeroes of p(x), therefore, (x−13) (x−43) (3x – 1) (3x – 4) or 9×2 – 15x + 4 exactly divides p(x).

⇒ 9×3 – 6×2 – 11x + 4 = (9×2 – 15x + 4) (x + 1)

Hence, x = -1 is its third zero.

**Question 7.**

Factorise : 6x^{2} – 5x^{2} – √3x + 12

Solution:

Let p(x) = 6x^{3}– 5x^{2} – √3x + 12

Here, constant term of p(x) is 12 and factors of 12 are ± 1, ± 2, ± 3, ± 4, ± 6, ± 12.

By putting x = 1, we have

p(1) = 6(1)^{3} – 5(1)^{2} – √3(1) + 12 = 6 – 5 – √3 + 12 = 0

∴ (x – 1) is a factor of p(x).

Now, by long division, we have

Thus,

p(x) = (x – 1) (6x^{2} + x – 12)

p(x) = (x – 1) (6x^{2} + 9x – 8x – 12)

p(x) = (x – 1) {3x (2x + 3) – 4(2x + 3)}

p(x) = (x – 1) (3x – 4) (2x + 3).

**Question 1.**

What must be added to polynomial f(x) = x^{4} + 2x^{2} – 2x^{2} + x – 1 so that resulting polynomial is exactly divisible by x^{2} + 2x – 3?

Solution:

Here, remainder = -x + 2

To make remainder = 0, we must add -(remainder) in the polynomial

i.e., -(-x + 2) i.e., x – 2

Hence, x4 + 2x^{3} – 2x^{2} + x – 1 + (x – 2)

Here, polynomial = x^{4} + 2x^{3}– 2x^{2} + 2x – 3 and required addition is (x – 2).

**Question 2.**

If x = 2 – √3, y = √3 – √7 and 2 = √7 – √4, find the value of x’ + 43 + 2?.

Solution:

Here, x + y + z = 2 – √3+ √3 – √7+√7 – 2 = 0

x^{3}+ √3 + x^{3}= 3(x)(y)(z)

= 3(2 – √3)(√3 – √7)(√7 – 2)

= 3(2√3 – 2√7 – 3 + √21)(√7 – 2)

= 3(2√21 – 14 – 3√7 + 7√3 – 4√3 + 4√7 + 6 – 2√21)

= 3(3√3 + √7 – 8)

**Question 3.**

If (x – a) is a factor of the polynomials x2 + px – q and x2 + rx – t, then prove that a = t−qr−p

Solution:

Let f(x) = x + px -q and g(x) = x2 + x – t

Since x-a is factor of both f(x) and g(x)

⇒ f(a) = g(a) = 0

Now, here f(a) = a2 + pa – q and

g(a) = a2 + ra- t

⇒ a2 + pa – q = a + ra – t (considering f(a) = g(a)]
⇒ pa – q = ra – t

⇒ ra – pa = t – q

⇒ a(r – p) = t – q

a = t−qr−p

**Question 1.**

If a teacher divides a material of volume 27x^{3} + 54x^{2} + 36x + 8 cubic units among three students. Is it possible to find the quantity of material ? Can you name the shape of the figure teacher obtained ? Which value is depicted by the teacher ?

Solution:

We know that, √olume = Length × Breadth × Height

Now, 27x^{3}+ 54x^{2} + 36x + 8

= (3x)^{3} + 3(3x)^{2}(2) + 3(3x)(2)^{2} + (2)^{3}

= (3x + 2)^{2} = (3x + 2) (3x + 2) (3x + 2)

Thus, volume = (3x + 2) (3x + 2) (3x + 2)

Yes, it is possible to find the quantity of material. (3x + 2) units.

**Question 2.**

In a camp organised by the students of class-9 to donate amount collected to flood victims of Kashmir. At the time of payment of a juice glass at one stall of juice, stall holder asked the students to pay the remainder of x3+ 3×2 + 3x + 1 divided by (x−12) What is the price of the juice at the stall ? Which value is depicted by class-9 students by organising such camps ?

Solution:

Let

p(x) = x2 + 3×2 + 3x + 1 and

By long division method, we have

Remainder = 278 or 3 38

Thus, price of the juice glass is ₹ 3 38
