## Maths Sample Paper Class 10 Term 2 with Solutions

Below are the questions that have been mentioned in the CBSE Class 10 Term-2 Maths Sample Paper with Solutions.

**SECTION A**

**Question 1- **Find the roots of the quadratic equation 3xΒ² β 7π₯ β 6 = 0.

**Solution- **3xΒ² β 7π₯ β 6 = 0

β 3xΒ² β 9π₯ + 2π₯ β 6 = 0

β 3π₯(π₯ β 3) + 2(π₯ β 3) = 0

β (π₯ β 3)(3π₯ + 2) = 0

β΅ π₯ = 3, β 2/3

**OR**

Find the values of k for which the quadratic equation 3xΒ² + ππ₯ + 3 = 0 has real and equal roots.

**Solution-** Since the roots are real and equal,

β΄ π· = bΒ² β 4ππ = 0

β kΒ² β 4Γ3Γ3 = 0 (β΅ π = 3, π = π, π = 3)

β kΒ² = 36

β k = 6 ππ β6

**Question 2- **Three cubes each of volume 64cmΒ³ are joined end to end to form a cuboid. Find the total surface area of the cuboid so formed?

**Solution- **Let π be the side of the cube and L, B, H be the dimensions of the cuboid

Since bΒ³ = 64cmΒ³ β΄ π = 4 ππ

Total surface area of cuboid is 2[πΏπ΅ + π΅π» + π»πΏ], Where L=12, B=4 and H=4

=2(12 Γ 4 + 4 Γ 4 + 4 Γ 12) cmΒ² = 224 cmΒ²

**Question 3- **An inter-house cricket match was organized by a school. The distribution of runs made by the students is given below. Find the median runs scored.

Runs scored | 0-20 | 20-40 | 40-60 | 60-80 | 80-100 |

Number of students | 4 | 6 | 5 | 3 | 4 |

**Solution-**

Runs scored | Frequency | Cumulative Frequency |

0-20 | 4 | 4 |

20-40 | 6 | 10 |

40-60 | 5 | 15 |

60-80 | 3 | 18 |

80-100 | 4 | 22 |

Total frequency (N) = 22

π/2 = 11; So 40-60 is the median class.

Median = π + ( π/2 )βππ/π Γ β

= 40 + 11β10/5 x 20

= 44 runs

**Question 4- **Find the common difference of the AP 4,9,14,β¦ If the first term changes to 6 and the common difference remains the same then write the new AP.

**Solution- **The common difference is 9 - 4=5

If the first term is 6 and the common difference is 5,

then the new AP is, 6, 6+5, 6+10β¦

=6,11,16β¦

**Question 5- **The mode of the following frequency distribution is 38. Find the value of x.

Class Interval | 0-10 | 10-20 | 20-30 | 30-40 | 40-50 | 60-70 |

Frequency | 7 | 9 | 12 | 16 | x | 11 |

**Solution- **β΅ Mode = 38.

β΄ The modal class is 30-40.

Mode = π + π1β π0 /2π1βπ0βπ2 Γ β

=30 + 16β12/ (32β12βπ₯ )x10 = 38

4/ 20βπ₯ x 10 =8

8(20-x) = 40

20-x= 5

X= 15

**Question 6- **XY and MN are the tangents drawn at the endpoints of the diameter DE of the circle with centre O. Prove that XY || MN.

**Solution- **β΅XY is the tangent to the circle at the point D

β΄ OD β XY β γ₯ODX = 90Β° β γ₯EDX = 90Β°

Also, MN is the tangent to the circle at E

β΄ OE β MN β γ₯OEN = 90Β° β γ₯DEN = 90Β°

γ₯EDX = γ₯ DEN (πππβ 90Β°).

which are alternate interior angles.

β΄ XY ΰ₯₯ MN

**OR**

In the given figure, a circle is inscribed in the quadrilateral ABCD. Given AB=6 cm, BC=7 cm and CD=4 cm. Find AD.

**Solution- **β΅Tangent segments drawn from an external point to a circle are equal

β΄ BP=BQ

CR=CQ

DR=DS

AP=AS

β BP+CR+DR+AP = BQ+CQ+DS+AS

β AB+DC = BC+AD

β΄ AD= 10-7= 3 cm

**SECTION B**

**Question 7- **An AP 5, 8, 11β¦has 40 terms. Find the last term. Also find the sum of the last 10 terms.

**Solution- **First Term of the AP(a) = 5

Common difference (d) = 8-5=3

Last term = a40 = a+(40-1) d

= 5 + 39 Γ 3 = 122

Also π31 = π + 30π = 5 + 30 Γ 3 = 95

Sum of last 10 terms = π/2 (π31 + π40)

= 10/2 (95 + 122)

= 5 Γ 217 = 1085

**Question 8- **A tree is broken due to the storm in such a way that the top of the tree touches the ground and makes an angle of 30Β° with the ground. The length of the broken upper part of the tree is 8 meters. Find the height of the tree before it was broken.

**Solution- **Let, AB be the tree broken at C,

Also let π΄πΆ = π₯

In β CAD, sin30Β° = π΄πΆ π·πΆ

β 1/2 = π₯/8 β π₯ = 4 π

β the length of the tree is = 8+4 =12m

**OR**

Two poles of equal height are standing opposite each other on either side of the road 80m wide. From a point between them on the road the angles of elevation of the top of the two poles are respectively 60Β° and 30Β° . Find the distance of the point from the two poles.

**Solution- **Let AB and CD be two poles of height h meters also let P be a point between them on the road which is x meters away from foot of first pole AB, PD= (80-x) meters.

In βABP, π‘ππ60Β° = β/π₯ β β = π₯β3 .β¦(1)

In βCDP, π‘ππ 30Β° = β/80βπ₯ β β =80βπ₯/β3 β¦.(2)

π₯β3 = 80 β π₯/β3 [β΅ πΏπ»π(1) = πΏπ»π(2), π π πππ’ππ‘πππ π π»π]

β 3π₯ = 80 β π₯ β 4π₯ = 80 β π₯ = 20π

So, 80 β π₯ = 80 β 20 = 60π

Hence the point is 20m from one pole and 60 meters from the other pole.

**Question 9- **PA and PB are the tangents drawn to a circle with centre O. If PA= 6 cm and β APB=60Β° , then find the length of the chord AB.

**Solution-** PA = PB (Tangent segments drawn to a circle from an external point are equal)

β΄ In βπ΄ππ΅, γ₯PAB = γ₯PBA

Also, γ₯APB = 60Β°

In βπ΄ππ΅, sum of three angles is 180Β°

Therefore, γ₯PAB + γ₯PBA = 180Β°

β΄ γ₯APB= 180Β° β 60Β° = 120Β°

γ₯PAB = γ₯PBA = 60Β°(β΄ γ₯PAB = γ₯PBA)

β΅ βπ΄ππ΅ is an equilateral triangle.

So, π΄π΅ = 6cm

**Question 10- **The sum of the squares of three positive numbers that are consecutive multiples of 5 is 725. Find the three numbers.

**Solution- **Let the three consecutive multiples of 5 be 5x, 5x+5, 5x+10.

Their squares are (5π₯)Β², (5π₯ + 5)Β² and(5π₯ + 10)Β²

(5π₯)Β²+ (5π₯ + 5)Β²+ (5π₯ + 10)Β²= 725

β25π₯Β²+ 25π₯Β²+ 50x + 25 + 25π₯Β²+ 100x + 100 = 725

β 75π₯Β²+ 150π₯ β 600 = 0

β π₯Β² + 2π₯ β 8 = 0

β (π₯ + 4)(π₯ β 2) = 0

β π₯ = β4, 2

β π₯ = 2 (ignoring βve value)

So the numbers are 10, 15 and 20

**Question 11- **Construct two concentric circles of radii 3cm and 7cm. Draw two tangents to the smaller circle from a point P which lies on the bigger circle.

**Solution- **Draw two concentric circles with centre O and radii 3 cm and 7 cm respectively.

βJoin OP and bisect it at π β², so ππβ² = π β²π

βConstruct circle with centre π β² and radius π β²π

βJoin PA and PB

**OR**

Draw a pair of tangents to a circle of radius 6cm which are inclined to each other at an angle of 60Β° . Also, find the length of the tangent.

**Solution- **Draw a circle of radius 6cm

βDraw OA and Construct β π΄ππ΅ = 120Β°

βDraw β ππ΄π = β ππ΅π = 90Β°

βPA and PB are required tangents

βJoin OP and apply tanβ π΄ππ = tan 30Β° = 6 ππ΄ β Length of tangent = 6β3 cm

**Question 12- **The following age-wise chart of 300 passengers flying from Delhi to Pune is prepared by the Airlines staff. Find the mean age of the passengers.

Age | Less than 10 | Less than 20 | Less than 30 | Less than 40 | Less than 50 | Less than 60 | Less than 70 | Less than 80 |

Number of passengers | 14 | 44 | 82 | 134 | 184 | 245 | 287 | 300 |

**Solution- **Converting the cumulative frequency table into exclusive classes, we get:

Age | No of passengers (fi) | xi | fi xi |

0-10 | 14 | 5 | 70 |

10-20 | 30 | 15 | 450 |

20-30 | 38 | 25 | 950 |

30-40 | 52 | 35 | 1820 |

40-50 | 50 | 45 | 2250 |

50-60 | 61 | 55 | 3355 |

60-70 | 42 | 65 | 2730 |

70-80 | 13 | 75 | 975 |

β ππ = 300 | β πππ₯π =12600 |

Mean age = π₯Μ = β πππ₯π/ β ππ = 12600/300

π₯Μ = 42

**Question 13- **A lighthouse is a tall tower with light near the top. These are often built on islands, coasts or on cliffs. Lighthouses on water surface act as a navigational aid to the mariners and send warning to boats and ships for dangers. Initially wood, coal would be used as illuminators. Gradually it was replaced by candles, lanterns, electric lights. Nowadays they are run by machines and remote monitoring. Prongs Reef lighthouse of Mumbai was constructed in 1874-75. It is approximately 40 meters high and its beam can be seen at a distance of 30 kilometres. A ship and a boat are coming towards the lighthouse from opposite directions. Angles of depression of flash light from the lighthouse to the boat and the ship are 30Β° and 60Β° respectively.

i) Which of the two, the boat or the ship is nearer to the lighthouse. Find its distance from the lighthouse?

ii) Find the time taken by the boat to reach the lighthouse if it is moving at the rate of 20 km per hour.

**Solution (i) **The ship is nearer to the lighthouse as its angle of depression is greater.

In β ACB, tan 60Β° = AB/BC

ββ3 = 40/BC

β΄ BC = 40/β3 = 40β3/3 m

**Solution (ii) **In β ADB, tan 30Β° = AB/BC

β 1/ β3 = 40/DB

β΄ DB = 40β3m

Time taken to cover this distance = ( 60/ 2000 Γ 40β3) minutes

= 60β3/100 = 2.076 minutes

**Question 14- **Krishnanagar is a small town in the Nadia District of West Bengal. Krishnanagar clay dolls are unique in their realism and the quality of their finish. They are created by modeling coils of clay over a metal frame. The figures are painted in natural colours and their hair is made either from sheepβs wool or jute. Artisans make models starting from fruits, animals, God, goddesses, farmers, fishermen, weavers to Donald Duck and present comic characters. These creations are displayed in different national and international museums.

Here are a few images (not to scale) of some clay dolls of Krishnanagar.

The ratio of diameters of red spherical apples in Doll-1 to that of spherical oranges in Doll-2 is 2:3. In Doll-3, a male doll of blue colour has a cylindrical body and a spherical head. The spherical head touches the cylindrical body. The radius of both the spherical head and the cylindrical body is 3cm and the height of the cylindrical body is 8cm.

Based on the above information answer the following questions:

i) What is the ratio of the surface areas of red spherical apples in Doll-1 to that of spherical oranges in Doll-2.?

ii) The blue doll of Doll-3 is melted and its clay is used to make the cylindrical drum of Doll-4. If the radius of the drum is also 3cm, find the height of the drum.

**Solution- (i) **Let π1πππ π2 be respectively the radii of apples and oranges

β΅ 2π1: 2π2 = 2: 3 β π1: π2 = 2: 3

4ππ1Β²: 4ππ2Β² = (π1/π2)Β² = (2/3)Β²

= 4: 9

**Solution- (ii) **Let the height of the drum be h.

The volume of the drum = volume of the cylinder + volume of the sphere

Ο3Β²h = (Ο3Β²Γ 8 + 4/3 Ο3Β³) ππΒ³

β β = (8 + 4)ππ

β β = 12ππ
