### Maths 2019 Solved Question Previous Year Paper ICSE

Section A [40 marks]
(Answer all questions from this Section.)

Question 1

(a) Solve the following in equation and write down the solution set : 
11x – 4 < 15x + 4 ≤ 3x + 14, x ∈ W
Represent the solution on a real number line.
(b) A man invests 4500 in shares of a company which is paying 7.5% dividend. 
If 100 shares are available at a discount of 10%. Find :
(i) Number of shares he purchases.
(ii) His annual income.
(c) In a class of 40 students, marks obtained by the students in a class test (out of 10) are given below : Calculate the following for the given distribution :
(i) Median
(ii) Mode Total investment = ₹ 4500
Face value of a share = ₹ 100
Discount = 10%
∴ Market value of a share = ₹ (100 – 10) = ₹ 90
Now, Number of shares purchased = $\frac{4500}{90}=50$
Annual income = = ₹ 375 Here, Marks corresponding to cumulative frequency 20 is 6
Thus, the required median is 6.
Clearly, 6 occurs 10 times which is maximum.
Hence, mode is 6.

Question 2

(a) Using the factor theorem, show that (x – 2) is a factor of x3 + x2 – 4x – 4. 
Hence, factorise the polynomial completely.
(b) Prove that :
(cosec θ – sin θ) (sec θ – cos θ) (tan θ + cot θ) = 1 
(c) In an Arithmetic Progression (A.P.) the fourth and sixth terms are 8 and 14 respectively.
Find the : 
(i) first term
(ii) common difference
(iii) sum of the first 20 terms.

(a) Given polynomial is p(x) = x3 + x2 – 4x – 4
x – 2 is its factor, if p(2) = 0
p(2) = (2)3 + (2)2 – 4(2) – 4 = 8 + 4 – 8 – 4 = 0
Thus, x – 2 is a factor of p(x).
Now, x3 + x2 – 4x + 4 = x2(x +1) – 4(x + 1)
= (x + 1) (x2 – 4)
= (x + 1) (x + 2) (x – 2)
Hence, the required factors are (x + 1), (x + 2) and (x – 2).
L.H.S. = (cosec θ – sin θ) (sec θ – cos θ) (tan θ + cot θ)  Hence, first term is – 1, common difference is 3 and sum of the first 20 terms is 550.

Question 3

(a) Simplify : (b) M and N are two points on the X axis and Y axis respectively. 
P(3, 2) divides the line segment MN in the ratio 2 : 3.
Find :
(i) the coordinates of M and N
(ii) slope of the line MN.
(c) A solid metallic sphere of radius 6 cm is melted and made into a solid cylinder of height 32 cm. Find the : 
(ii) curved surface area of the cylinder
Take π = 3.1  (b) Let the coordinates of M and N be (x, 0) and (0, y) Thus, the coordinates of M and N are M(5,0) and N(0, 5). Hence, the slope of the line MN is – 1.

(C) Radius of metallic sphere (R) = 6 cm
Height of cylinder (h) = 32 cm
Volume of cylinder = Volume of metallic sphere Curved Surface area of the year = 2πrh
= 2 × 3.1 × 3 × 32 = 595.2 cm2

Question 4

(a) The following numbers, K + 3, K + 2, 3K – 7 and 2K – 3 are in proportion. Find K. 
(b) Solve for x the quadratic equation x2 – 4x – 8 = 0
(c) Use ruler and compass only for answering this question. 
Draw a circle of radius 4 cm. Mark the center as 0. Mark a point P outside the circle at a distance of 7 cm from the center. Construct two tangents to the circle from the external point P. Measure and write down the length of any one tangent

(a) Here, $\frac{K+3}{K+2}=\frac{3 K-7}{2 K-3}$
⇒ (K + 3) (2K – 3) = (K + 2) (3K – 7).
⇒ 2K2 – 3K + 6K – 9 = 3K– 7K + 6K – 14
⇒ K2 – 4K – 5 = 0
⇒ (K – 5) (K + 1) = 0
⇒ K = 5 or K = – 1

(b) Given quadratic equation is x2 – 4x – 8 = 0
By using quadratic formula, we have  $2(1 \pm \sqrt{3})=2(1 \pm 1.73205)=2(2.73205) \text { or } 2(-0.73205)$
= 5.46410 or – 1.4641
= 5.46 or – 1.46

(c) Steps of Construction : 1. Draw a circle of radius 4 cm and centre 0.
2. Draw a radius and produce it to P, such that
OP = 7 cm.
3. Bisect OP at M.
4. With M as centre and MP as radius, draw a circle to intersect the given circle at Q and R.
5. Join PQ and PR.
PQ and PR are the required tangents and length of the tangents is 5.74 cm.

Question 5

(a) There are 25 discs numbered 1 to 25. They are put in a closed box and shaken thoroughly. A disc is drawn at random from the box.
Find the probability that the number on the disc is : 
(i) an odd number
(ii) divisible by 2 and 3 both
(iii) a number less than 16.
(b) Rekha opened a recurring deposit account for 20 months. The rate of interest is 9% per annum and Rekha receives 441 as interest at the time of maturity. Find the amount Rekha deposited each month.
(c) Use a graph sheet for this question. 
Take 1 cm = 1 unit along both x and y axis.
(i) Plot the following points :
A(0, 5), B(3, 0), C(1, 0) and D(1, -5)
(ii) Reflect the points B, C and D on the y-axis and name them as B’, C’, D’ respectively.
(iii) Write down the coordinates of B’, C’ and D’.
(iv) Join the points A, B, C, D, D’, C’, B’, A in order and give a name to the closed figure ABCDD’C’B’.
