(ii) No success

11. Reduce the equations of the line given by 3x +2y –z – 4 = 0 and 4x + y –2z + 3 = 0 in symmetric form.

12. How many ways can 4 boys and 3 girls be seated in a row of 7 chairs if boys and girls alternate?

13. The length of a rectangle is decreasing at the rate of 5cm/minute and the width y is increasing at the rate of 4 cm/minute. When x=8cm and y=6cm, find the rate of change of

(a) the perimeter,

(b) the area of the rectangle

14. If the sum of the lengths of the hypotenuse and a side of a right-angled triangle is given, show that the area of the triangle is maximum when the angle between them is π/3.

15. A dealer wishes to purchase a number of fans and sewing machines. He has only Rs. 5,760 to invest and has a apace for at most 20 items. A fan costs him Rs. 360 and a sewing machine Rs. 240. His expectation is that he sell a fan at a profit of Rs. 22 and a sewing machine at a profit of Rs. 18. Assuming that he can sell all the items that he can buy, how should he invest his money in order to maximize the profit? Formulate this as a linear programming problem and solve it graphically.
