Question: The interior angles of a polygon are in AP. If the smallest angle is 120 and the common difference is 5, then find the possible number of sides of that polygon?
Options:
 A. 16 B. 9 C. Both a and b D. None of these
: B

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon = (n-2) 180 n2 * (2a+ (n-1)d)= (n-2)180 n2* [2*(120) + (n-1)5]=(n-2)180 n[48+(n-1)] = (n-2)72 n2 -25n + 144=0 n=9 and n=16 when n= 16, the greatest angle will be equal to a+15d = 120 + 15 x 5 = 195 and no interior angle of a polygon can be equal to or greater than 180. hence answer =b

Question 1. Concentric circles are drawn with radii 1, 2, 3 … 100. The interior of the smallest circle is colored black and the annular regions are colored alternately red and black, so that no two adjacent regions are the same color. The total area of the red regions divided by the area of the largest circle is
1.    12
2.    51100
3.    101200
4.    50101
: C

Areas of circles follow the sequence 1,4,9,16,…………1002 Areas of Black & Red annuals – 1,3,5,7,9……………199 – General term 2n – 1 Red annuals – 3, 7, 11, …………….. 199 Sum = (502)*(3 + 199) Largest circle’s area = 1002 Ratio = 101200 Note : Ignore pi as it is a ratio of areas Shortcut: Reverse gear approach – We know that the denominator is 1002 and num is an integer, hence the denominator cannot be 101 as it is in no-way a factor of 10000. Hence option d) has been eliminated. We need to find R(R+B). R + B = 10000. Each of the red annual is greater in area by 2 units than the subsequent black annual and there are 50 such cases. Hence R = 5050 and B = 4950. R(R+B). = 505010000 = 101200
Question 2. Find the side of a piece of cloth in the shape of an equilateral triangle, whose area costs as much to paint at Rs 10/ square metre as it would cost to lay a border around the three sides at Rs 25 per metre?
1.    13.33 m
2.    17.32 m
3.    14.14 m
4.    8.66 m
: B

Option (b) Perimeter = 3a Area = 34a2 10x34a2= 25x3a a=303= 17.32 m
Question 3. In Δ ABC, D,E and F are taken on AB, AC and BC respectively, so that EF=CF and DF=BF. If A=40, then find DFE?

1.    100∘
2.    120∘
3.    90∘
4.    140∘
: A Option (a) Take DBF = a and ECF = b.
40 +
a + b = 180 a + b= 140
DFB + EFC + DFE = 180 180 – 2a + 180 – 2b + DFE = 180 180 – 2(a + b) = - DFE
DFE = 280 – 180
= 100

: B

Option b
It’s important that we note that it is a Pythagoras triplet 72 = 252+242 Now, In a right-angled triangle, the median to the hypotenuse is half the hypotenuse and is also the circum radius of the triangle. As the hypotenuse is 25, the circum radius is 12.5
