About WBJEE Exam
WBJEE is a common entrance examinations held at state level for admission to the Undergraduate Level Engineering and Medical courses in the State of West Bengal. The Mathematics section of WBJEE 2014 engineering entrance exam consists of 80 questions.
27. Let α,β be the roots of x2–x–1 = 0 and Sn = αn+βn, for all integers n ≥ 1. Then for every integer n≥2
(A) Sn+Sn–1 = Sn+1
(B) Sn–Sn–1 = Sn
(C) Sn–1 = Sn+1
(D) Sn+Sn–1 = 2Sn+1
Ans : (A)
x2–x–1 = 0
α2–α–1 = 0
α2 = α + 1 …(1)
β2 = β + 1 …(2)
Sn +Sn–1 = αn+βn + αn-1+βn-1 = (αn+αn–1)+( βn+βn–1) = αn–1 (α+1) + βn–1 (β+1)
From (1) and (2)
Sn +Sn–1 = αn–1 (α2) + βn–1 (β2) = αn+1 + βn+1 = Sn+1
So, Sn +Sn–1 = Sn+1
28. In a ΔABC, a,b,c are the side of the triangle opposite to the angles A,B,C respectively. Then the value of a3sin(B–C) + b3 sin(C–A) + c3sin(A–B) is equal to
Ans : (A)
By using sine law and 3A formula, the value of .
a3sin(B–C) + b3 sin(C–A) + c3sin(A–B) = 0
29. In the Argand plane, the distinct roots of 1+z+z3+z4 = 0 (z is a complex number) represent vertices of
(A) a square
(B) an equilateral triangle
(C) a rhombus
(D) a rectangle
Ans : (B)
1+z+z3+z4 = 0,
(1+z) (1+z3)= 0,
z = –1, –1, –ω, –ω2
30. The number of digits in 20301 (given log102 = 0.3010) is
log 20301 = 301 × log 20 = 301 × 1.3010 = 391.6010,
So, the number of digits in 20301 is 392 digits.
