**Q1)
**For what value of k
will the following system of linear equations have an infinite number of
solutions :

2x + 3y = 2; (k + 2)x + (2k + 1)y = 2(k - 1) ? **(Marks
2)**

**Q2)
**Reduce to its
lowest term:

(2x^{2} - 2x)/(x^{3} + x^{2} + x) **(Marks
2)**

**Q3)
**Find whether the
number 4, 7, 6 and 10 are in proportional or not. If not what number be added to
each number so that they become proportional ? **(Marks 2)**

**Q4)
**For what value of x,
is the mode of the following data 9 ?

5, 8, 9, 3, 9, 8, 7, 6, 8, 9, x, 4 **(Marks 2)
**

**Q5)
**The mean weight of 25
students
of a class is 60 kg. If the mean weight of the first 13 students of the class is
57 kg and that of the last 13 students is 63 kg, find the weight of the 13th
student. **(Marks 2)**

**Q6)
**Ahmed purchased a
washing machine, with a market price of Rs. 8500 at a discount of 4%. If the
sales tax is charged at 7%, find the amount Ahmed had to pay for purchasing the
washing machine. **(Marks 2)**

**Q7)
**A part of monthly hostel charges in a college
are fixed and the remaining depends on the number of days one has taken food in
the mess. When a student X takes food for 25 days, he has to pay Rs. 1750 as
hostel charges where as a student Y, who takes food for 28 days, pays Rs. 1900
as hostel charges. Find the fixed charge and the cost of food per day. **(Marks
4)**

**Q8)**
Find the value of a and b so that the polynomials p(x) and q(x) have (x + 1)(x -
4) as their HCF.

p(x) = (x^{2} + 3x + 2)(x^{2} - 7x + a)

q(x) = (x^{2} - 2x - 8)(x^{2} - 2x + b) **(Marks
4)
**

**Q9)**
Show that cos A/(1 - tan A) + sin A/(1 - cot A) = sin A + cos A

**(Marks 4)**

**Q10)**
Solve for x :

3^{4x + 1} - 2 x 3^{2x + 2}
= 81 **(Marks 6)**

**Q11)
**Find whether the
number 4, 11, 12 and 27 are in proportional or not. If not what number be added
to each number so that they become proportional ? **(Marks
2)**

**Q12)
**Reduce
the following rational expression in to lowest form:

(x^{4} - 13x^{2} + 36 )/(x^{3} - x^{2} - 6x)
**(Marks 2)**

**Q13)
**Sarla
purchased an almirah, with a market price of Rs. 5600 at a discount of 5%. If
the sales tax is charged at 10%, find the amount Sarla had to pay for purchasing
the almirah. **(Marks 2)**

**Q14)
**The
mean of 23 observations is 34. If the mean of the first 12 observations is 32
and that of the last 12 observations is 38, find the 12th observation. **(Marks
2)**

**Q15)** For
what value of x, is the mode of the following data 11 ?

8, 9, 11, 10, 12, 14, 11, 14, 15, 14, x, 11 **(Marks
2)
**

**Q16)
**Find
the value of a and b so that the polynomials p(x) and q(x) have (x - 1)(x + 4)
as their HCF.

p(x) = (x^{2} - 3x + 2)(x^{2} + 7x + a), q(x) = (x^{2} +
5x + 4)(x^{2} - 5x + b) **(Marks 4)
**

**Q17)
**A
part of monthly hostel charges in a college
are fixed and the remaining depends on the number of days one has taken food in
the mess. When a student
A takes food for 22 days, he has to pay Rs. 1380 as hostel charges where as a
student B, who takes food for 28 days, pays Rs. 1680 as hostel charges. Find the
fixed charge and the cost of food per day. **(Marks
4)
