(b) 20

(c) 24

(d) 32

8) In Î”ABC,

(a) 25

(b) 42

(c) 50

(d) 60

9) In an isosceles triangle DEF,

(a) 110

(b) 130

(c) 145

(d) 155

10) In the following figure, O is the centre of the circle and
âˆ PRQ = 50o. What is the value (in degrees) of âˆ PTQ?

(a) 100

(b) 75

(c) 130

(d) 150

xÂ² – 3x + 1 = 0

Multiply the equation by 1/x

a + b + c = -11

Or (a + 4) + (b + 5) + (c + 2) = 0

We know inÂ  xÂ³ + yÂ³ + zÂ³ – 3xyz = (x + y + z) (xÂ² + yÂ² + zÂ² – xy â€“ yz â€“ zx]

If x + y + z = 0

Then, xÂ³ + yÂ³ + zÂ³ – 3xyz = 0

So, the value of given equation is 0.

By putting the value from options one by one, only

x = 3 satisfy the given equation.

Note =In isosceles triangle median is also the altitude.

So, ADÂ² = ABÂ² – BDÂ² (by Pythagoras theorem)

= 30Â² – 24Â²

In âˆ†AEC ; âˆ AEC = 180Â° – (54 + 42)

= 84Â°

By exterior angle property

âˆ BAE + âˆ ABE = 84Â° – Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  â€¦(i)

In âˆ†ABE,

For perpendicular bisector, AE = BE

So, âˆ ABE = âˆ BAE = x

By Equation (i)

2x = 84Â°

x = 42Â°
