Question The Relation between the height of the plant (y in cm) with respect to exposure to sunlight is governed by the following equation y = 4x – 1/2 𝑥^2 where x is the number of days exposed to sunlight.
Question 1 The rate of growth of the plant with respect to sunlight is ______ . (a) 4𝑥 – 1/2 𝑥^2 (b) 4 – 𝑥 (c) 𝑥 – 4 (d) 𝑥 – 1/2 𝑥^2
Rate of growth of plant with respect to sunlight
= 𝒅𝒚/𝒅𝒙
= d(4𝑥 − 1/2 𝑥^2 )/𝑑𝑥
= 4 − 1/2 × 2𝑥
= 4 – 𝒙
So, the correct answer is (b)
Question 2 What is the number of days it will take for the plant to grow to the maximum height? (a) 4 (b) 6 (c) 7 (d) 10
Given
y = 4𝑥−1/2 𝑥^2
We need to find value of x, when y is maximum
Thus, we need to find Maximum value of y
Finding Maximum value of y
𝑑𝑦/𝑑𝑥 = 4 − x
Putting 𝒅𝒚/𝒅𝒙 = 0
4 − x = 0
x = 4
Finding sign of (𝒅^𝟐 𝒚)/(𝒅𝒙^𝟐 )
(𝒅^𝟐 𝒚)/(𝒅𝒙^𝟐 ) = 𝑑/𝑑𝑥 (𝑑𝑦/𝑑𝑥)
= (𝑑(4 − 𝑥))/𝑑𝑥
= −1
< 0
Therefore, y is Maximum when x = 4
So, the correct answer is (a)
Question 3 What is the maximum height of the plant? (a) 12 cm (b) 10 cm (c) 8 cm (d) 6 cm
Putting x = 4 in value of y
y = 4𝑥−1/2 𝑥^2
y = 4(4)−1/2 × 4^2
y = 16 − 8
y = 8 cm
So, the correct answer is (c)
Question 4 What will be the height of the plant after 2 days? (a) 4 cm (b) 6 cm (c) 8 cm (d) 10 cm
To find Height of plant after 2 days
Putting x = 2 in value of y
y = 4𝑥−1/2 𝑥^2
y = 4(2)−1/2 × 2^2
y = 8 − 2
y = 6 cm
So, the correct answer is (b)
Question 5 If the height of the plant is 7/2 cm, the number of days it has been exposed to the sunlight is ______ . (a) 2 (b) 3 (c) 4 (d) 1
Putting y = 𝟕/𝟐 in equation of y
y = 4𝑥−1/2 𝑥^2
𝟕/𝟐 = 4𝑥−1/2 𝑥^2
Multiplying both sides by 2
7 = 8x − x2
x2 − 8x + 7 = 0
x2 − 7x − x + 7 = 0
x(x − 7) − 1 (x − 7) = 0
(x − 1) (x − 7) = 0
∴ x = 1, x = 7
Since x = 1 is option (d)
So, the correct answer is (d)
