Case study based questions are compulsory.
36. A tiling or tessellation of a flat surface is the covering of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. Historically, tessellations were used in ancient Rome and in Islamic art. You may find tessellation patterns on floors, walls, paintings etc. Shown below is a tiled floor in the archaeological Museum of Seville, made using squares, triangles and hexagons.
A craftsman thought of making a floor pattern after being inspired by the above design. To ensure accuracy in his work, he made the pattern on the Cartesian plane. He used regular octagons, squares and triangles for his floor tessellation pattern.
Use the above figure to answer the questions that follow:
(i) What is the length of the line segment joining points B and F?
(ii) The centre ‘Z’of the figure will be the point of intersection of the diagonals of quadrilateral WXOP. Then what are the coordinates of Z?
(iii) What are the coordinates of the point on y axis equidistant from A and G?
OR
What is the area of Trapezium AFGH?
37. The school auditorium was to be constructed to accommodate at least 1500 people. The chairs are to be placed in concentric circular arrangement in such a way that each succeeding circular row has 10 seats more than the previous one.
(i) If the first circular row has 30 seats, how many seats will be there in the 10th row?
(ii) For 1500 seats in the auditorium, how many rows need to be there?
OR
If 1500 seats are to be arranged in the auditorium, how many seats are still left to be put after 10th row?
(iii) If there were 17 rows in the auditorium, how many seats will be there in the middle row?
38. We all have seen the airplanes flying in the sky but might have not thought of how they actually reach the correct destination. Air Traffic Control (ATC) is a service provided by groundbased air traffic controllers who direct aircraft on the ground and through a given section of controlled airspace, and can provide advisory services to aircraft in noncontrolled airspace. Actually, all this air traffic is managed and regulated by using various concepts based on coordinate geometry and trigonometry.
At a given instance, ATC finds that the angle of elevation of an airplane from a point on the ground is 60°. After a flight of 30 seconds, it is observed that the angle of elevation changes to 30°. The height of the plane remains constantly as 3000√3 m. Use the above information to answer the questions that follow
(i) Draw a neat labelled figure to show the above situation diagrammatically.
(ii) What is the distance travelled by the plane in 30 seconds?
OR
Keeping the height constant, during the above flight, it was observed that after 15(√3 1) seconds, the angle of elevation changed to 45°. How much is the distance travelled in that duration.
(iii) What is the speed of the plane in km/hr.
