**A few sample questions from the CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Solved Question Paper 2017, are given below:**

**Q. **If *ad* ≠ *bc*, then prove that the equation (*a*^{2} + *b*^{2})*x*^{2} + 2 (*ac* + *bd*)*x* + (*c*^{2} + *d*^{2}) = 0 has no real roots.

**Sol.**

The given equation is (*a*^{2} + *b*^{2})*x*^{2} + 2 (*ac* + *bd*)*x* + (*c*^{2} + *d*^{2}) = 0

We know, *D *= *b*^{2}−4*ac*

Thus,

*D *= [2(*ac*+*bd*)]^{2 }− 4(*a*^{2}+*b*^{2})(*c*^{2}+*d*^{2})]

= [4(*a*^{2}*c*^{2}+*b*^{2}*d*^{2}+ 2*abcd*)] − 4(*a*^{2}+*b*^{2})(*c*^{2}+*d*^{2})

= 4[(*a*^{2}*c*^{2}+*b*^{2}*d*^{2}+ 2*abcd*) − (*a*^{2}*c*^{2}+*a*^{2}*d*^{2}+*b*^{2}*c*^{2}+*b*^{2}*d*^{2})]

= 4[*a*^{2}*c*^{2}+*b*^{2}*d*^{2 }+ 2*abcd*−*a*^{2}*c*^{2}−*a*^{2}*d*^{2}−*b*^{2}*c*^{2}−*b*^{2}*d*^{2}]

= 4[2*abcd *− *b*^{2}*c*^{2 }− *a*^{2}*d*^{2}]

= −4[*a*^{2}*d*^{2}+*b*^{2}*c*^{2}−2*abcd*]

= −4[*ad*−*bc*]^{2}

But we know that *ad* ≠ *bc*

Therefore, (*ad*−*bc*) ≠0

⟹ (*ad*−*bc*)^{2} > 0

⟹ −4(*ad*−*bc*)^{2} < 0

⟹ *D *< 0

Hence, the given equation has no real roots.

**Q. **The dimensions of a solid iron cuboid are 4·4 m × 2·6 m × 1·0 m. It is melted and recast into a hollow cylindrical pipe of 30 cm inner radius and thickness 5 cm. Find the length of the pipe.

**Sol.**

Given, dimensions of a solid iron cuboid = 4·4 m × 2·6 m × 1·0 m

Thus, Voume of cuboid = 11.44 m^{3}

Also given, inner radius of cylindrical pipe, *r* = 30 cm = 0.30 m

And, thickness of cylindrical pipe = 5 cm

Thus, outer radius of cylindrical pipe,* R* = 30 + 5 = 35 cm = 0.35 m

Let the length of the cylindrical pipe be *h* cm.

Therefore, volume of cylindrical pipe = *πR*^{2}*h *− *πr*^{2}*h *= *πh*(*R*^{2}−*r*^{2})

= *πh* [(0.35)^{2 }− (0.30)^{2}]

= *πh*(0.35 − 0.30)(0.35 + 0.30)

= *πh*(0.05 × 0.65) = 0.0325*πh *m^{3}

According to the question,

Volume of iron cylindrical pipe = Volume solid iron cuboid

⟹ 0.0325*πh* = 11.4

⟹ *h* = 112 m

Thus, the required length of pipe = 112 m.

**Q. **If the points A(*k* + 1, 2*k*), B(3*k*, 2*k* + 3) and C(5*k* − 1, 5*k*) are collinear, then find the value of *k*.

**Sol.**

Given that points A(*k* + 1, 2*k*), B(3*k*, 2*k* + 3) and C(5*k* − 1, 5*k*) are collinear.

Therefore, the area of the triangle formed by these three points = 0

Thus the required values of *k* are 1/2 and 2.

**Q. **Two different dice are thrown together. Find the probability that the numbers obtained have

(i) even sum, and

(ii) even product.

**Sol.**

On throwing the two different dice the various outcomes obtained are as follows:

(1,1), (1,2), (1,3), (1,4), (1,5), (1,6),

(2,1), (2,2),(2,3) (2,4), (2,5), (2,6),

(3,1), (3,2), (3,3), (3,4), (3,5), (3,6),

(4,1), (4,2), (4,3), (4,4), (4,5), (4,6),

(5,1), (5,2), (5,3), (5,4), (5,5), (5,6),

(6,1), (6,2), (6,3), (6,4), (6,5), (6,6)

Thus, here total number of outcomes are 36.

(i) Even sum outcomes are as follows:

(1,1), (1,3), (1,5),

(2,2), (2,4), (2,6),

(3,1), (3,3), (3,5),

(4,2), (4,4), (4,6),

(5,1), (5,3), (5,5),

(6,2), (6,4), (6,6)

Thus, number of favourable outcomes = 18

P(even sum) = 18/36 = 1/2

Hence, the probability of getting an even sum is 1/2.

(ii) Even product outcomes are as follows:

(1,2), (1,4), (1,6),

(2,1), (2,2),(2,3) (2,4), (2,5), (2,6),

(3,2), (3,4), (3,6),

(4,1), (4,2), (4,3), (4,4), (4,5), (4,6),

(5,2), (5,4), (5,6),

(6,1), (6,2), (6,3), (6,4), (6,5), (6,6)

Thus number of favourable outcomes = 27

P (even product) = 27/36 = 3/4

Hence, the probability of getting an even product is 3/4.
