Which of the following cannot be the probability of an event?
The correct answer is A.
The probability of an event is always greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to one i.e., 0£P(E)£1.
Here, 3/5=0.6 and 25%=0.25
Therefore, 0.6, 0.25 and 0.3 are greater than or equal to 0 and are less than or equal to 1. But 1.5 is greater than 1. Thus, 1.5 can not be the probability of an event.
The mid-point of segment AB is the point P (0,4). If the coordinates of B are (-2,3) then the coordinates of A are
(A) (2, 5)
(B) (-2, -5)
(C) (2, 9)
The point P which divides the line segment joining the points A(2,-5) and B(5,2) in the ratio 2:3 lies in the quadrant.
The angle of elevation of the top of a tower from a point on the ground, which is 30 m away from the foot of the tower is 45°. The height of the tower (in metres) is
The correct option is B
Let AB be the tower and P be the point on the ground. It is given that BP=30 m, P=45°
Thus, the height of the tower is 30m.
A sphere of diameter 18 cm is dropped into a cylindrical vessel of diameter 36 cm, partly filled with water. If the sphere is completely submerged, then the water level
rises (in cm) by
The radii of two circles are 4 cm and 3 cm respectively. The diameter of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles (in cm) is
In figure, PA and PB are tangents to the circles with centre O. If APB=60°, then OAB is
Thus, the correct option is A.
PA and PB are tangents to the circle from an external point O.
PAB is an isosceles triangle where PAB=PBA
P+PAB+PBA=180° [Angle sum property of triangle]
It is known that the radius is perpendicular to the tangent at the point of contact.
OAB=90° - 60°
In figure, O is the centre of a circle, AB is a chord and AT is the tangent at A. If AOB=100°, then BAT is equal to
Thus, the correct option is C.
It is given that AOB=100°
DAOB is isosceles because OA=OB= radius
2OAB=180° - 100°
Now, OAT=90° [AT is tangent and OA is radius]
In an AP, if d= - 2, n=5 and an=0, then the value of a is
The roots of the equation x2+x-p(p+1)=0, where p is a constant, are
(B) -p, p+1
