**Question 1: Find the sum of the order and the degree of the differential equation:**

**(x+dy/dx) ^{2} = (dy/dx)^{2} +1**

**Answer: **

Given differential equation,

(x+dy/dx)

^{2}= (dy/dx)^{2}+1on simplifying,

x

^{2}+ (dy/dx)^{2}+ 2x(dy/dx) = (dy/dx)^{2}+ 1Subtracting (dy/dx)

^{2}from both sides we get,x

^{2}+ 2x(dy/dx) = 1Now,

Order of the above Differential Equation is 1

Degree of the above Differential Equation is 2

So the sum is 1+1 = 2

**Question 2: In a Parallelogram PQRS, ****= 3i-2j+2k and ****= -i-2k. Find the |QS| and |PR|.**

**Answer:**

Given,

= 3i-2j+2k

= -i-2k

By triangular law of vector,

\vec{QS} = \vec{PS} – \vec{PQ}

= (-i-2k) – (3i-2j+2k)

=(-4i+2j-4k)

|QS| = (16+4+16)

^{1/2}=(36)^{1/2}=6.Similarly,

+=

=>(3i-2j+2k)+(-i-2k)

=(2i-2j)

|PR|=(4+4)

^{1/2}= (8)^{1/2.}

**Question 3 a: If d(F(x))/dx = sec4x / cosec4x F(**Ï€**/4)=**Ï€**/4, then find F(x).**

**Answer:**

If d/dx [F(x)] = sec

^{4}x/cosec^{4}xBy taking integration both sides,

âˆ«sec

^{4}x/cosec^{4}x dx = F(x)F(x) = âˆ«tan

^{4}xdx

âˆ«tanÂ²x (secÂ²x-1)dx [tan^{2}x = sec^{2}x – 1]

= âˆ«tanÂ²xsecÂ²dx â€“ âˆ«tanÂ²x dx

= âˆ«tanÂ²xsecÂ²xdx â€“ âˆ«(secÂ²x -1) dxBy using Method of substitution:

let, tanx=t

Differentiating both sides with respect to x,

=>sec^{2}x = dt/dx

=>sec^{2}x dx= dt

Now, the equation is:= âˆ« t

^{2}dt – tanx + x+ c

= t^{3}/3 – tanx + x + cNow Putting the values into the equation:

F(x) = tanÂ³x/3 â€“ tan x + x+ c

=> F(Ï€/4) = 1/3 – 1 + Ï€/4 + c

=> Ï€/4 = 1/3 â€“ 1 + Ï€/4 + c

=> xc = 1-1/3 = 2/3

F(x) = tanÂ³x /3 â€“ tan x + x + 2/3.

**Question 3 b: Find Integration of (logx -3) /(logx)**^{4 .}dx.

^{4 .}dx.

**Answer:**

âˆ« log x â€“ 3/(log x)

^{4}dxBy using Method of substitution:

logx = t

Differentiating both sides with respect to x,

1/x = dt/dx

dx= xdt [logx=t => x=e^{t}]

=>dx= e^{t}dtNow putting the values into the equation:

âˆ« t-3/t^{4}(e^{t}dt)

= e^{t}(1/t^{3}â€“ 3/t^{4})dt

= e^{t}/t^{3}+ cPutting the values into the equation:

= e^{logx}/(logx)3 + c

= x/(log x)3 +c where, c=constant

**Question 4: Let A and B be two events such that P(A)=5/8, P(B)=1/2, and P(A/B)= 3/4. Find the value of P(B/A).**

**Answer:**

We know that,

P(B/A)= P(A.B)/P(A)

P(A/B)=P(A.B)/P(B)

=>P(A.B)= P(A/B) Ã— P(B)

=3/4 Ã— 1/2

=3/8

So, P(B/A) = (3/8) / (5/8)

=3/5.

**Question 5: Two balls are drawn at random from a bag containing 2 red balls and 3 blue balls, without replacement. Let the variable X denote the number of red balls. Find the probability distribution of X.**

**Answer:**

For X = No. of red balls is taken i.e., X = (BB),

P(X) = 3/5 Ã— 2/4

= 6/20 = 3/10

For X = One Ball is red is taken i.e., X(BR, RB)

P(X) = 3/5 Ã— 2/4 + 2/5 Ã— 3/4

= 6/20 + 6/20 = 12/20 = 3/5

For X = Both Red Balls are taken i.e., X(RR)

P(X) = 2/5 Ã— 1/4

= 2/20 = 1/10

X 0 1 2 P(X) 3/10 3/5 1/10

**Answer:**

The distance from the pane to point is:

2âˆš2 = 3(2) + 5(1) + 4(Î») -III/âˆš9+25+16

= 2âˆš2Ã—5âˆš2 = |6+5+4Î» â€“ II

**Question 7 a: If a, b, c and d are four non-zero vectors such that aÃ—b = cÃ—d and aÃ—c = 4bÃ—d then show that a-2d is parallel to 2b-c where a is not equal to 2d and c is not equal to 2b**

**Answer:**

If a vector is non-zero then it has at least one non-zero component, a zero vector has all components as 0’s therefore no length.

Consider the LHS and RHS of the given

It more or less equivalent to the commutative law,

a-2d is parallel to 2b-c where a is not equal to 2d and c is not equal to 2b,

Here, we consider the following equation so as to get the value,

Vectors when multiplied in scalar in 1 and when

multiplied using vector becomes zero

Here,

We take example,

AÃ—A = 0

Following the procedure in the sum for same,

We get,

a x b-a x c = c x d-b x d

=> ax(b-c)=(c-b) x d

=> ax(b-c)-(c-b) x d=0

â‡’ ax(b-c)-dx(bâˆ’c) = 0

(a-d)x(b-c)=0

â‡’ (a-d) || (b-c)

(a-d) (b-c)+0

a.b+d.c is not equal to d.b+ a.c

Hence, the required answer is a.b+d.c is not equal to d.b+ a.c

**Question 7 b: The two adjacent sides of a parallelogram are 2i-4j-5k and 2i+2j+3k Find the unit vector parallel to its diagonal. Also, find the area of the parallelogram also.**

**Answer:**

Let

X and Y are adjacent side of a parallelogram, where

X=2 i-4 jâˆ’5k and

Y= 2i+2 jâ€‹+3k

Let diagonal be ZHence

Z= X+ Y=(2 i- 4 jâˆ’5k)+( 2i+2 j+3 k)=4 i-2 j-2 k

|Z|= 4^{2 }+ 2^{2 }+2^{2}= 16+4+4

=âˆš24.

**Answer:**

Given that,

x dy/dx +x cos

^{2}(y/x) =y=>dy/dx +cos

^{2}(y/x)= y/x=>dy/dx = y/x – cos

^{2}(y/x)BY using Method of substitution:

Let, y=ux

dy/dx=u+x Ã— du/dx

Now, Substituting the value into our diff. eq.

u+ x Ã— du/dx = ux/x – cos

^{2}(ux/x)u+ x Ã— du/dx = u – cos

^{2}(u)x Ã— du/dx=- cos

^{2}usec

^{2}u du= -dx/xOn Integrating both sides we get,

tanu =-logx+ C

tan(y/x) + logx = C

C= Log1

Hence, tan(y/x) +logx= log1
