**19. Find the intervals on which the function f(x) = 2x ^{3} + 9x^{2} + 12x + 20 is increasing.**Given, f(x) = 2x

Answer :

^{3}+ 9x

^{2}+ 12x + 20

⇒ f ′(x) = 6x

^{2}+ 18x + 12

= 6(x

^{2}+ 3x + 2) = 6(x + 1)(x + 2)

For f (x) to be increasing, f ′(x) > 0

⇒ 6(x + 1)(x + 2) > 0

⇒ (x + 1) (x + 2) > 0

⇒ x + 1 > 0, x + 2 > 0 or x + 1 < 0, x + 2 < 0

⇒ x > –1 or x < –2

⇒ x ∈( –1, ∞) or x ∈ (– ∞, – 2)

∴ f is increasing in (–∞, –2) ∪ (–1, ∞).

**20. A vector r̅ is inclined at equal angles to OX, OY and OZ. If the magnitude of r̅ is 6 units, then find r̅ .Answer : **Suppose r̅ makes an angle a with each of the axes OX, OY and OZ. Then, its direction cosines are

(2î + λĵ + k̂) . (î − 2ĵ + 3k̂) = 0

⇒ (2) (1) + λ(–2) + (1) (3) = 0

⇒ –2l + 5 = 0 ⇒ λ = 5/2

**29. Let A = R – {2} and B = R – {1}. If f : A → B is a mapping defined by f(x) = x-1/x-2 then show that f is bijective.Answer : **

**30. Consider **

If f (x) is continuous at x = 0, then find the value of k.

**Answer : **f(0) = k (Given) …(i)

Since, f(x) is continuous at x = 0.

**31. Find the values of x for which f (x) = (x (x – 2)) ^{2} is an increasing function. Also, find the points on the curve, where the tangent is parallel to x-axis.Answer : **Given, f (x) = (x(x – 2))

^{2}= x

^{2}(x – 2)

^{2}, Df = R.

Differentiating w.r.t. x, we get

f ′(x) = x

^{2}· 2(x – 2) + (x – 2)

^{2}· 2x

= 2x(x – 2)(x + x – 2) = 2x(x – 2)(2x – 2) = 4x(x – 1)(x – 2)

Now, the given function f is (strictly) increasing iff

f ′ (x) > 0

⇒ x ∈ (0, 1) ∪ (2, ∞)

Further, the tangents will be parallel to x-axis iff

f ′(x) = 0

⇒ x = 0, 1, 2

The given curve is y = x^{2}(x – 2)^{2}

When x = 0, y = 0;

When x = 1, y = 1^{2}(1 – 2)^{2} = 1 × (–1)^{2} = 1 × 1 = 1;

When x = 2, y = 2^{2} (2 – 2)^{2} = 4 × 0 = 0.

∴ The points on the given curve, where the tangents

are parallel to x-axis are (0, 0), (1, 1) and (2, 0).

**36. Find the image of the point having position vector î + 3ĵ+4k̂ in the plane r̅.(2î–ĵ+k̂)+3 = 0.Answer : **Let Q be the image of the point P(î + 3ĵ+4k̂) in the plane r̅.(2î–ĵ+k̂)+3 = 0

Then, PQ is normal to the plane. Since PQ passes through P and is normal to the given plane, therefore equation of line PQ is

r̅ = (î + 3ĵ+4k̂) + λ(2î–ĵ+k̂)+3 = 0

Since Q lies on line PQ, so let the position vector of Q be

= (î + 3ĵ+4k̂) + λ(2î–ĵ+k̂)+3 = 0

(1+2λ)î + 3(3–λ)ĵ +(4+λ)k̂

Since, R is the mid-point of PQ. Therefore, position vector of R is

**OR**

**37. Solve the following linear programming problem (LPP) graphically.****Maximize Z = 4x + 6y****Subject to constraints:****x + 2y ≤ 80, 3x + y ≤ 75 ; x, y ≥ 0Answer : **We have maximize Z = 4x + 6y.

Subject to constraints :

x + 2y ≤ 80, 3x + y ≤ 75 and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Now we draw the graphs of the lines

l1 : x + 2y = 80, l2 : 3x + y = 75 and x = 0, y = 0.

We obtain shaded region as the feasible region.

The lines l_{1} and l_{2} intersect at Q(14, 33).

Thus, the vertices of the feasible region are P(0, 40),

Q(14, 33), R(25, 0) and O(0, 0).

Corner Points | Value of Z = 4x + 6y |

P(0, 40) | 240 |

Q(14, 33) | 254 (Maximum) |

R(25, 0) | 100 |

O(0, 0) | 0 |

Thus, Z has maximum value 254 at Q(14, 33).

**OR****Solve the following linear programming problem (LPP) graphically.****Minimize Z = 30x + 20y****Subject to constraints : x + y ≤ 8, x + 4y ≥ 12, 5x + 8y ≥ 20 ; x, y ≥ 0Answer : **We have minimize Z = 30x + 20y.

Subject to constraints :

x + y ≤ 8, x + 4y ≥ 12, 5x + 8y ≥ 20, x, y ≥ 0

Now, we draw the graphs of

l1 : x + y = 8, l2 : x + 4y = 12, l3 : 5x + 8y = 20 and

x = 0, y = 0
