(b) $\frac{21}{{2}^{3}{5}^{6}}$

(c) $\frac{17}{49}$

(d) $\frac{89}{{2}^{2}{3}^{2}}$

Here we have to check terminating decimal expansion.

We know that if the numerator can be written in the form where m and n are non negative positive integer then the fraction will surely terminate. We proceed as follows to explain the above statement

Hence the correct option is (b).

#### Question 2:

(a) 0

(b) 3

(c) 5

First we have to write equation in basic format of divisibility like this

After solving, we have seeing here the reminder is = 16xpx

So, to find the value of p we put the reminder is equal to zero.

Therefore

Hence option (d) is correct.

(a) 83°

(b) 32°

Hence the correct option is

#### Question 4:

(a) 5

(b) 40

(c) 80

(d) 15

Here we have to find the median from the given graph.

The following graph is given.

From the given graph we can easily see that the total cumulative frequency N = 80.

First we draw a line from the point on the less than ogive graph which is parallel to the x-axis and draw a line perpendicular to the x-axis from that point, which meet the x-axis at x = 15 which is the desired median.

Hence the correct option is (d)

#### Question 5:

For what value of k will the following system of linear equations has no solution:

3x + y = 1

(2k − 1)x + (k − 1)y = 2k + 1

The given system of equations is

3x + y = 1

(2k − 1)x + (k − 1)y = 2k + 1

Here, a1 = 3, b1 = 1, c1 = 1

a2 = 2k − 1, b2 = k − 1, c2 = 2k + 1

The given system of linear equations has no solution.

Now,

$\frac{3}{2k-1}=\frac{1}{k-1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒3k-3=2k-1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒3k-2k=-1+3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒k=2$

When k = 2,

$\frac{1}{k-1}=\frac{1}{2-1}=1$ and $\frac{1}{2k+1}=\frac{1}{2×2+1}=\frac{1}{5}$

Thus, for k = 2, $\frac{1}{k-1}\ne \frac{1}{2k+1}$

Hence, the given system of linear equations will have no solution when k = 2.

It given that the mean of the distribution is 54.

$\therefore \mathrm{Mean}=\frac{\sum _{}^{}{f}_{i}{x}_{i}}{\sum _{}^{}{f}_{i}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\frac{2370+30p}{39+p}=54\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒2370+30p=2106+54p\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒54p-30p=2370-2106$

$⇒24p=264\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒p=\frac{264}{24}=11$

Hence, the value of p is 11.

Here, a1 = 3k + 1, b1 = 3, c1 = −2

a2 = k2 + 1, b2 = k − 2, c2 = −5

The given system of equations has no solution.

Now,

$\frac{3k+1}{{k}^{2}+1}=\frac{3}{k-2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\left(3k+1\right)\left(k-2\right)=3\left({k}^{2}+1\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒3{k}^{2}-5k-2=3{k}^{2}+3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒-5k=5$
