Questions 1 to 8 are of 1 mark each.
Question 1.
If x + y = 11 and xy = 24, then x2 + y2 =
(a) 121
(b) 73
(c) 48
(d) none of these

Answer

x + y = 11, xy = 24,
We’know that, (x + y)2 = x2 + y2 + 2xy
x2 + y2 = (x + y)2 – 2xy
= (11)2 – 2 × 24 = 121 – 48 = 73 (b)

Question 2.
Factors of a3 – 64a are
(a) a(a – 8)2
(b) (a + 8) (a – 8)
(c) a(a + 8) (a – 8)
(d) a(a + 8)2

Answer

a3 – 64a = a[a2 – (8)2]
= a(a + 8)(a – 8) (c)

Question 3.
If 3(y – 3) = 5(2y + 1) then y is equal to
(a) 3
(b) -3
(c) 2
(d) -2

Answer

3(y – 3) = 5(2y + 1)
⇒ 3y – 9 = 10y + 5
⇒ 3y – 10y = 5 + 9
⇒ -7y = 14
⇒ y = \frac{14}{-7} = -2 (d)

Question 4.
If one angle of a parallelogram is 30° less than other angle, then the larger angle is
(a) 150°
(b) 75°
(c) 105°
(d) 210°

Answer

One angle of a parallelogram = 30 less then the other
n – y = 30°
But x + y= 180°
∴ Adding, 2x = 210° ⇒ x = \frac{210}{2} = 105°
∴ One angle = 105°
and other angle = 180° – 105° = 75°
Larger angle = 105° (c)

Question 5.
A polyhedron has 7 faces, 10 vertices and 15 edges. Name of the polyhedron is
(a) hexagonal prism
(b) pentagonal prism
(c) hexagonal pyramid
(d) none of these

Answer

A polyhedron has 7 faces, 10 vertices and 15 edges,
It is a pentagonal prism. (b)

Question 6.
The base of a triangle is twice its height. If the area of the triangle is 25 cm2, then the base is
(a) 10 cm
(b) 20 cm
(c) 5 cm
(d) 25 cm

Answer

Base of the triangle is twice its height.
Let height = x cm
Then base = 2x cm
∴ Area = \frac{1}{2} × base × height
⇒ \frac{1}{2} × 2x × x = x2
⇒ x2 = 25 = (25)2
⇒ x = 5
∴ Base = 2x = 2 × 5 = 10 cm (a)

Model Questions Paper-6 Class-8 ML Aggarwal Section-B

Questions 9 to 14 are of 2 marks each.
Question 9.
Using suitable identity, evaluate (9.7)2.

Answer

(9.7)2 = (10 – 0.3)2
= (10)2 – 2 × 10 × 0.3 + (0.3)2
= 100 – 6 + 0.09
= 94.09

Question 10.
Factorize x2y2(a4 + b4) + a2b2(x4 + y4).

Answer

x2y2(a4 + b4) + a2b2(x4 + y4)
= x2y2a4 + x2y2b4 + a2b2x4 + a2b2y4
= x2y2a4 + a2b2x4 + x2y2b4 + a2b2y4
= x2a2(y2a2 + b2x2) + y2b2(x2b2 + a2y2)
= x2a2(b2x2 + a2y2) + y2b2(b2x2 + a22y2)
= (b2x2 + a2y2) (a2x2 + b2y2)

Question 11.
Sum of three consecutive odd numbers is 153. Find the numbers.

Answer

Let first odd number = 2x + 1
Second odd number = 2x + 3
and third odd number = 2x + 5
According to the condition,
2x + 1 + 2x + 3 + 2x + 5 = 153
⇒ 6x + 9 = 153
⇒ 6x = 153 – 9 = 144
⇒ x = \frac{144}{6} = 24
∴ First odd number = 2 × 24 + 1 = 49
Second number = 49 + 2 = 51
and third number = 51 + 2 = 53
Hence numbers are 49, 51, 53

Question 12.
If each interior angle of a regular polygon is 108°, then find the number of sides of the polygon.

Answer

Each interior angle of a regular polygon = 108°
Let n be the number of sides, then
\frac{2 n-4}{n} × 90° = 108°
⇒ \frac{2 n-4}{n}=\frac{108}{90}=\frac{12}{10}
⇒ 20n – 40 = 12n
⇒ 20n – 12n = 40
8n = 40
⇒ n= \frac{40}{8} = 5
∴ Number of sides = 5

Question 13.
Verify Euler’s formula for decagonal pyramid.

Answer

In a decagonal pyramid.
Number of faces = 11
Number of vertices = 11
Number of edges = 20
Using Euler’s formula
F + V = E + 2
⇒ 11 + 11 = 20 + 2
⇒ 22 = 22
Hence proved.

Question 14.
A cuboid is of dimensions 24 cm × 30 cm × 36 cm. How many small cubes with side 6 cm can be placed in the cuboid?

Answer

Dimensions of a cuboid = 24 cm × 30 cm × 36 cm
Edge (side) of a small cube = 6 cm
∴ Number of small cubes which will be kept in the cuboid = \frac{24 \times 30 \times 36}{6 \times 6 \times 6} (∵ \frac{\text { Volume of cuboid }}{\text { Volume of one cube }})
= 4 × 5 × 6 = 120

Questions 15 to 24 are of 4 marks each.


Question 15.
Simplify the following expressions and evaluate it when x = 1, y = -1
(5xy – 3x2 + 2y2) × (5y2 – 8xy + 3x2) + 9x3y – 8y4 + 12x4

Answer

(5xy – 3x2 + 2y2) × (5y2 – 8xy + 3x2) + 9x3y – 8y4 + 12x4
= 5xy(5y2 – 8xy + 3x2) – 3x2(5y2 – 8xy + 3x2) + 2y2(5y2 – 8xy + 3x2)
+ 9x3y – 8y4 + 12x4
= 25xy3 – 40x2y2 + 15x3y – 15x2y2 + 24x3y – 9x4 + 10y4 – 16xy3
+ 6x2y2 + 9x3y – 8y4 + 12x4
= 3x4 + 48x3y – 49x2y2 + 9xy3 + 2y4
When x = 1, y = -1, then
= 3(1)4 + 48(1)3(-1) – 49(1)2(-1 )2 + 9(1)(-1)3 + 2(-1)4
= 3 – 48 – 49 – 9 + 2
= -106 + 5 = -101

Question 16.
Factorize: 15(2x – 3y)2 – 4(4x – 6y) – 16

Answer

15(2x – 3y)2 – 4(4x – 6y) – 16
15(2x – 3y)2 – 4 × 2(2x – 3y) – 16
Let 2x – 3y = p, then
15p2 – 8p – 16
15p2 – 20p + 12p – 16
{∵15 × (-16) = -240
-240}
= 5p(3p – 4) + 4(3p – 4)
= (3p – 4) (5p + 4)
= [3(2x – 3y) – 4] [5(2x – 3y) + 4]
= (6x – 9y – 4) (10x – 15y + 4)

Question 17.
Two years ago Ramesh was three times as old as his son. Two years later, twice of his age will be equal to the five times that of his son’s age. Find their present ages.

Answer

Two years ago,
Let the age of son = x years
Then age of Ramesh, the father = 3x years
∴ Present age of Ramesh = 3x + 2 years
and age of his son = x + 2 years
2 years later,
Age of Ramesh will be = 3x + 2 + 2 = 3x + 4
years and age of his son = x + 4 years
According to the condition,
2(3x + 4) = 5(x + 4)
⇒ 6x + 8 = 5x + 20
⇒ 6x – 5x = 20 – 8
⇒ x = 12
∴ Present age of Ramesh = 3x + 2
= 3 × 12 + 2 = 36 + 2 = 38 years
and age of his son = x + 2 = 12 + 2 = 14 years

Question 18.
In the given figure ABCD is a parallelogram in which ∠DAP = 40°, ∠BAP = 25° and ∠CPD = 105°, find
(i) ∠ABP
(ii) ∠PDC
(iii) ∠ACB
(iv) ∠CBD

Answer

ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 2
In parallelogram ABCD diagonals AC and BD intersect each other at P.
∠DAP = 40°, ∠BAP = 25° and ∠CPD = 105°
To find :
(i) ∠ABP
(ii) ∠PDC
(iii) ∠ACB
(iv) ∠CBD
∴ ∠APB = ∠CPD (Vertically opposite angles) = 105°
In ∆APB,
(i) ∠PAB + ∠PBA + ∠APB = 180° (Angles of a triangle)
⇒ 25° + ∠PBA + 105° = 180°
⇒ ∠PBA + 130°= 180°
∠PBA = 180° – 130° = 50°
or ∠ABP = 50°
(ii) ∠PDC = ∠PBA (Alternate angles)
∴ ∠PDC = 50°
(iii) ∠ACB = ∠CAB (Alternate angles) = 25°
(iv) In ∆PDC (Sum of its opposite interior angles)
Ext. ∠CPD = ∠PCD + ∠PDC
⇒ 105° = 40° + ∠PDC
∴ ∠PDC = 105° – 40° = 65°

Question 21.
In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle. If PT is tangent to the circle at point T, find the size of each lettered angle.
ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 5

Answer

A circle with centre O.
PT is a tangent and POQ is a tangent ∠OPT = 32°
∵ PT is tangent and OT is the radius
∴ OT ⊥ PT
∠OTP = 90°
∴ In ∆OPT
x + ∠OTP + ∠OPT = 180° (∠s of triangle)
⇒ x + 32° + 90° = 180°
⇒ x + 122° = 180°
⇒ x = 180°- 122° = 58°
In ∆OTQ, ∠OTQ = ∠OQT = y (∵ OT and OQ are radii of the circle)
But, x = ∠OQP + ∠OTQ
58°= y + y = 2y
∴ y = \frac{58^{\circ}}{2} = 29°
Hence, x = 58°, y = 29°

Question 22.

A rectangular sheet of tin foil of size 30 cm × 18 cm can be rolled to form a cylinder two ways along length and breadth. Find the ratio of volumes of the two cylinders thus formed.

Answer

Length of rectangular sheet = 30 cm
and breadth = 18 cm
ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 6
(i) By rolling length wise,
circumference = 30 cm
∴ Radius (r1) = \frac{\mathrm{C}}{2 \pi}
\frac{30 \times 7}{2 \times 22}=\frac{105}{22} \mathrm{cm}
and height (h1) = 18 cm
∴ Volume = πr2h = π\left(\frac{105}{22}\right)^{2} × 18 cm3
and by rolling breadth wise,
circumference = 18 cm.

Answer

Let length of a room (l) = x m
∴ Height (h) = \frac{x}{2} m
and breadth (b) = \frac{3}{2} \times \frac{x}{2}=\frac{3}{4} x m
Cost of painting the walls at the rate of 1.75 per m2 = ₹196
ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 11
ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 12
Now, area of floor = l × b = 8 × 6 = 48m2
Rate of tiling = ₹8.50 per m2
Total cost = ₹48 × 8.50 = ₹48 × \frac{17}{2} = ₹ 204

Answer

ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 14

Question 26.
In the given figure, ABCD is a rhombus and DCFE is a square, If ∠ABC = 56°, find
(i) ∠DAG
(ii) ∠FEG
(iii) ∠AGC
ML Aggarwal Class 8 Solutions for ICSE Maths Model Question Paper 6 15

Answer

(i) As, ABCD is a rhombus,
∴ AB = BC = CD = DA …(i)
Also, DCFE is a square
∴ DC = CF = FE = ED …(ii)
From (i) and (ii), we get
ED = AD
∴ ∠DAE = ∠DEA
Also, ∠ABC = ∠ADC and ∠EDC = 90°
∴ ∠EDA = 90° + 56°
In ∆EDA,
∠EDA + ∠DAE + ∠DEA = 180°
(90° + 56°) + 2∠DAE = 180° (∵ ∠DAE = ∠DEA as ED = AD)
2∠DAE = 180°- 146 = 34°
∠DAE = \frac{34^{\circ}}{2} = 17°
∴ ∠DAE = ∠DAG = 17°
(ii) ∠FEG = ∠FED – ∠DEG
= 90° – 17° = 73° (v DCFE is a square)
(iii) In ∆ DEG,
∠D + ∠DEG + ∠DGE = 180°
90° + 17° + ∠DGE = 180°
⇒ ∠DGE = 180- 107° = 73°
∴ ∠AGC = 73° (Vertically opposite angle to ∠DGE)

Answer

In a bag, there are 5 red, 6 black and 4 white balls.
∴ Total number of balls (outcomes) = 5 + 6 + 4 = 15
One ball is drawn at random.
(i) ∴ Probability of a ball being white P(E) = \frac{4}{15}
(ii) Probability of a ball being not a black
[(5 + 4) = 9] = P(E) = [\frac{9}{15}=\frac{3}{5}
