If x = 3 is one root of the quadratic equation x^{2} – 2kx – 6 = 0, then find the value of k.
Because 3 is a root of the equation, substitute the value of x as 3 in the equation and solve to find the value of k.
What is the HCF of smallest prime number and the smallest composite number?
What is the smallest prime number? What is the smallest composite number?
Compute the HCF of these two numbers.
Find the distance of a point P(x, y) from the origin.
Concept: The formula to compute the distance between two points whose coordinates are (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}).
Approach: One of the points is the origin (0, 0). Let it be (x_{1}, y_{1})
The second point is P(x, y). Let it be (x_{2}, y_{2}).
Substitute these values in the formula to find the distance between two points to find the answer.
In an AP, if the common difference (d) = - 4, and the seventh term (a_{7}) is 4, then find the first term.
Approach: The nth term of an AP a_{n} = a_{1} + (n - 1)d, where a_{1} is the first term of the AP and 'd' is the common difference.
Given Data: a_{7} = 4 and d = (-4). So, n = 7.
Substitute: The above values in the equation to find the nth term a_{n} and find a_{1}.
What is the value of (cos^{2} 67° - sin^{2} 23°)?
Concept: Trigonometric values of complementary angles.
Step 1: Rewrite cos 67 as cos (90 - 23).
Step 2: Apply properties of trigonometric values of complementary angles and compute the answer.

Concept / Theorem: Ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides.
Given Data: Ratio of corresponding sides of the two similar triangles is given.
Apply Theorem: Apply the theorem about the relation between the ratio of corresponding sides of two similar triangles and their areas to compute the answer.
Question 1: If x = 3 is one root of the quadratic equation x^{2} – 2kx – 6 = 0, then find the value of k.

x = 3 is one root of x^{2} - 2kx - 6 = 0
Because 3 is one of the roots of the equation, substituting x= 3 will satisfy the equation.
3^{2} - 2 × k × 3 - 6 = 0
9 - 6k - 6 = 0
6k = 3 or k = \\frac{3}{6}) = \\frac{1}{2})
Question 2: What is the HCF of smallest prime number and the smallest composite number?

Smallest prime number is 2.
Smallest composite number is 4.
HCF(2, 4) = 2.
Question 3: Find the distance of a point P(x, y) from the origin.

Distance between two points A(x_{1}, y_{1}) and B(x_{2}, y_{2}) = \\sqrt{(x_2 - x_1)^2 + (y_2 - y_1)^2})
∴ distance between (x, y) and (0, 0) = \\sqrt{(x - 0)^2 + (y - 0)^2})
= \\sqrt{x^2 + y^2})
Question 4: In an AP, if the common difference (d) = - 4, and the seventh term (a_{7}) is 4, then find the first term.

Common difference, d = -4
7th term a_{7} = 4
Let a_{1} be the first term of this AP.
∴ a_{7} = a_{1} + (7 - 1)d
4 = a_{1} + 6(-4)
4 = a_{1} - 24
a_{1} = 28
Question 5: What is the value of (cos^{2} 67° - sin^{2} 23°)?
Scroll down further for explanatory answer text
The given trigonometric expression is cos^{2}67° – sin^{2}23°
The expression is of the form (a^{2} - b^{2})
(a^{2} - b^{2}) = (a + b)(a - b)
∴ cos^{2}67° – sin^{2}23° = (cos 67° + sin 23°) (cos 67° - sin 23°) ... eqn(1)
Trigonometric Ratio of Complementary Angles: sin (90 - θ) = cos θ
Let us express sin 23° = sin(90° - 67°)
sin (90° - 67°) = cos 67°
Substitute sin 23° as cos 67° in eqn(1): (cos 67° + sin 23°) (cos 67° - sin 23°) = (cos 67° + cos 67°) (cos 67° - cos 67°)
(2 cos 67°) (0) = 0.
Question 6: Given ∆ ABC is similar to ∆ PQR. If \\frac{AB}{PQ} = \frac{1}{3}), then find \\frac{ar ∆ ABC}{ar ∆ PQR})
Scroll down further for explanatory answer text
Theorem: Ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides.
\\frac{\text{Area of Δ ABC}}{\text{Area of Δ PQR}}) = \\frac{\text{Square of corresponding side of ABC}}{\text{Square of corresponding side of PQR}}) = \\frac{{AB}^2}{{PQ}^2})
\\frac{{AB}^2}{{PQ}^2}) = \\frac{1^2}{3^2}) = \\frac{1}{9})
