The die is thrown once. What is the probability of getting
(i) a positive integer.
(ii) an integer greater than -3.
(iii) the smallest integer. [4]

Answer 1


Question 2

(b) Shahrukh opened a Recurring Deposit Account in a hank and deposited Rs. 800 per month for if years. If he received Rs. 15,084 at the time of maturity, find the rate of interest per annum. [3]
(c) Calculate the ratio in which the line joining A (-4, 2) and B(3, 6) is divided by point P(x, 3). Also find (i) x (ii) Length of AP. [4]

Answer 2

Hence, rate of interest = 6% p.a.
(c) Let P(x, 3) divide the line segment joining the points A (-4, 2) and B (3, 6) in the ratio k : 1

Question 3


(a) Without using trigonometric tables, evaluate sin2 34° + sin2 56°+ 2 tan 18° tan 72°- cot2 30° [3]
(b) Using the Remainder and Factor Theorem, factorise the following polynomial: x3 + 10x2 – 37x + 26. [3]
(c) In the figure given below, ABCD is a rectangle. AB = 14 cm, BC = 7 cm. From the rectangle, a quarter circle BFEC and a semicircle DGE are removed.
icse-previous-papers-with-solutions-for-class-10-mathematics-2014-12Calculate the area of the remaining piece of the rectangle. (Take π = \frac { 22 }{ 7 } [4]

Answer 3

On dividing x3 + 10x2 – 37x + 26 by x – 1, we get x2 + 11x – 26 as the quotient and remainder = 0.

Question 4

(a) The numbers 6, 8, 10, 12, 13 and x are arranged in an ascending order. If the mean of the observations is equal to the median, find the value of x. [3]
(b) In the figure, ∠DBC = 58°. BD is a diameter of the circle. Calculate :
(i) ∠BDC         (ii) ∠BEC            (iii) ∠BAC
icse-previous-papers-with-solutions-for-class-10-mathematics-2014-18(c) Using graph paper to answer the following questions. (Take 2 cm – 1 unit on both axis)
(i) Plot the points A (- 4, 2) and B (2, 4)
(ii) A’ is the image of A when reflected in the y-axis. Plot it on the graph paper and write the coordinates of A’.
(iii) B’ is the image of B when reflected in the line AA’. Write the coordinates of B’.
(iv) Write the geometric name of the figure ABAB’.
(v) Name a line of symmetry of the figure formed. [4]


Answer 4

(b) In ∆ BCD; ∠DBC = 58°
(i) ∠BCD = 90° (Angle in the semicircle as BD is diameter)
∴ ∠DBC + ∠BCD + ∠BDC = 180°
⇒ 58°+ 90° +∠BDC = 180°
⇒ ∠BDC = 180° – (90° + 58°)
= 180°-148°
= 32° Ans.

(ii) ∠BEC + ∠BDC = 180° ( ∵BECD is a cyclic quadrilateral)

∠BEC = 180°- ∠BDC = 180°-32°
∠BEC = 148°

(iii) ∠BAC = ∠BDC (Angle of same segment are equal)
∠BAC = 32°

(c) (i) See Graph.
(ii) Coordinate of A’ = (4, 2)
(iii) Coordinate of B’ = (2, 0)
(iv) Geometric name = Kite.
(v) AA’ is the symmetric line.
