## Why Case study questions are important

- Case study questions in Class 10 Maths are designed to assess students’ understanding and application of mathematical concepts in real-world scenarios. These questions require students to analyze a given situation, identify relevant mathematical principles, and apply them to solve the problem at hand.
- Case study questions help to foster critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and the ability to connect mathematical concepts with practical situations.
- These questions involve multiple mathematical topics such as geometry, algebra, statistics, probability, and more.

## Case study class 10 Maths Questions

Here are some of the Case study class 10 Maths Questions

**Question 1**

A test consists of ‘True’ or ‘False’ questions. One mark is awarded for every correct answer while ¼ mark is deducted for every wrong answer. A student knew answers to some of the questions. Rest of the questions he attempted by guessing. He answered 120 questions and got 90 marks.

- If answer to all questions he attempted by guessing were wrong, then how many questions did he answer correctly?
- How many questions did he guess?
- If answer to all questions he attempted by guessing were wrong and answered 80 correctly, then how many marks he got?
- If answer to all questions he attempted by guessing were wrong, then how many questions answered correctly to score 95 marks?

**Answer**

Let the no of questions whose answer is known to the student x and questions attempted by cheating be y

x + y =120

x-1/4y =90

solving these two

x=96 and y= 24

- He answered 96 questions correctly.
- He attempted 24 questions by guessing.
- Marks = 80- ¼ 0f 40 =70
- x – ¼ 0f (120-x) =95

5x=500, x = 100

**Question 2**

The snooker table has six pockets (P1, P2, P3, P4, P5 and P6) and he has shown three balls – white (W), red (R) and green (G) on the table. The objective of the game is to use the white ball to hit the coloured balls into the pockets using a cue stick.

(i) How much distance will a ray travel if sent from the green ball to the nearest pocket? Show your work.

(ii) Riju wants to place a yellow ball at the midpoint of the line connecting the white and green balls.

Find the coordinates of the point at which he should place the yellow ball. Show your steps.

(iii) Riju is running a trial on his game. He struck the white ball in a way that it rebound off the rail (line connecting P4 and P6) and went into the pocket P2.

After the rebound, the ball crossed the x-axis at point X( 2/7, 0) on the way to the pocket.

The ratio of the distance between the rail and point X and the distance between point X and the pocket was 3:4.

Find the coordinates of the point at which the ball struck the rail. Show your steps.

(iv) Riju wants to hit a blue ball placed at (-1, -3) into pocket P5 along a straight path. Would the red ball lie on the straight path between the blue ball and P5? Justify your answer.

**Answer**

(i) Identifies the coordinates of the green ball as (7, 1) and the nearest pocket P4 as (9, 3). Using the distance formula we can calculate the distance . The distance $\sqrt 8$ or $2 \sqrt 2$ units

(ii) The coordinates of the yellow ball using the midpoint formula with W(-3, -2) and G(7, 1) will be ( 2, -1/2)

(iii) Lets Considers the point where the ball struck the rail as (c, 3) and the coordinates of P2 (other end point) as (2, -4). Now we can find c using the section formula

$\frac {2}{7} = \frac {4c+6}{7}$ or c=-1

So the point is (-1,3)

(iv) The distance between the blue ball and red ball (BR) using distance formula is $2 \sqrt 5$

The distance between the red ball and P5 (RP5) using distance formula is $\sqrt 5$ units

The distance between the blue ball and P5 (BP5) using distance formula is $3 \sqrt 5$ unit

It Concludes that red ball will lie on the straight path between the blue ball and P5 by proving that the three points are collinear as BR + RP5 = BP5.

(ii) b

(iii) d

(iv) c

(v) a
