Hint to solve this CBSE 2019 sample paper 1 mark Arithmetic Progressions problem

Approach: Compute the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd term by susbtituting n = 1, n = 2, and n = 3 in the expression (2n + 1). Subsequently, find the sum of the 3 terms.

5. Question 5

In figure if AD = 6cm, DB = 9cm, AE = 8cm and EC = 12cm and ∠ADE = 48°. Find ∠ABC.

Hint to solve this CBSE 2019 sample paper 1 mark Triangles question

Concept: Check whether Basic Proportionality theorem applies in this case.
Step 1: Compute ratio between AD and DB and between AE and EC
Step 2: If the ratios are same, by converse of Basic Proportionality Theorem, DE will be parallel to BC.
Step 3: If DE is parallel to BC, corresponding angles will be equal and the answer can be computed.

6. Question 6

After how many decimal places will the decimal expansion of $$frac{23}{2^4 × 5^3}$ terminate? Hint to solve this CBSE 2019 sample paper 1 mark Real Numbers question Step 1: Rewrite the fraction such that the powers of 2s and 5s in the denominator is the same. This ensures that we get the denominator as a power of 10 Step 2: The power of 10 in the denominator is the number of decimal places in the decimal expansion of the fraction. ### Video Solution and Explanatory Answers to CBSE 2019 Sample Paper - 1 mark questions 1 to 6 Question 1: Find the value of a, for which point P$$$frac{a}{3}$ , 2) is the mid-point of the line segment joining the points Q$-5,4) and R(-1,0).

#### Explanatory Answer | Q2 Internal Choice 2

If a quadratic equation has real and equal roots, then the discriminant (D) of the equation is 0.
Discriminant of a quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 is b2 – 4ac
In the given equation, a = 1, b = 5k, and c = 16
b2 – 4ac = 0
(5k)2 – 4(1)(16) = 0
25k2 – 64 = 0

#### Explanatory Answer | Q4 2019 Sample Question Paper

nth term of the given A.P. is (2n + 1)
Substitute n = 1 to find the first term of the A.P. a1 = 2(1) + 1 = 3
Substitute n = 2 to find the second term of the A.P. a2 = 2(2) + 1 = 5
Substitute n = 3 to find the third term of the A.P. a3 = 2(3) + 1 = 7
Sum of the first three terms = 3 + 5 + 7 = 15

Question 5: In figure if AD = 6 cm, DB = 9 cm, AE = 8 cm and EC = 12 cm and ∠ADE = 48°. Find ∠ABC.

#### Explanatory Answer | Q5 2019 Sample Question Paper

Basic Proportionality Theorem: If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.
AD = 6 cm, DB = 9 cm, AE = 8 cm and EC = 12 cm
$\frac{AD}{DB}$ = $\frac{6}{9}$ = $\frac{2}{3}$; $\frac{AE}{EC}$ = $\frac{8}{12}$ = $\frac{2}{3}$
$\frac{AD}{DB}$ = $\frac{AE}{EC}$ ∴ DE is parallel to BC
If DE is parallel to BC, corresponding angles will be equal.
∴ ∠ADE = ∠ABC = 48°

Question 6: After how many decimal places will the decimal expansion of $\frac{23}{2^4 × 5^3}$ terminate?

#### Explanatory Answer | Q6 2019 Sample Question Paper

Any real number which has a decimal expansion that terminates can be expressed as a rational number whose denominator is a power of 10 i.e., power of 2 and 5.
Express the fraction in an equivalent form such that the powers of 2 and 5 of the denominator are equal. Ensures that the denominator is a power of 10.
$\frac{23}{2^4 × 5^3}$ = $\frac{23}{2^4 × 5^3}$ × $\frac{5}{5}$ = $\frac{23 × 5}{2^4 × 5^4}$ = $\frac{115}{10^4}$ = 0.0115
The answer is 4 places.
