## 1.REAL NUMBERS

### Rational numbers:-

ex:-  3/2, 3/5, 2, 1 and so on

• Natural numbers, Whole numbers, and Integers are rational numbers.
• The rational numbers do not have a unique representation.

Representation of rational number: To find a rational number between given numbers:

Ex:- insert two rational number between 1 and 2 To find a rational number in a single step:-

Ex:- insert two rational number between 1 and 2

To find two rational numbers, we 1 and 2 as rational numbers with same denominator 3     (∵ 1 + 2 = 3) The decimal form of rational numbers: • Note:-Every rational number can be expressed as a terminating decimal or non-terminating repeating decimal.
• Converting decimal form into a fraction:
1. Terminating decimals:-  (i) 1.2 = 12/10 = 6/5

(ii) 1.35 =135/100 = 135/100 = 27/20

1. Non-Terminating repeating decimals:- ### Irrational numbers:

• Every irrational number can be expressed as a non-terminating decimal or non-repeating decimal.

Calculation of square roots:  #### Representing irrational numbers on a number line:

• At ‘O’ draw a unit square OABC on a number line with each side 1 unit in length.
• By Pythagoras theorem                          OB2 = OA2 + AB2

=  12 + 12

OB2 = 2 ### Real numbers

locating 2. 775 on a number line ### Operation on real numbers

• The sum, difference, product and quotient of irrational numbers need not be an irrational number.
• Irrational numbers are not closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
• For any two real numbers a and b #### Rationalizing the denominator:

• Rationalizing factor(R.F):-If the product of two irrational numbers is rational, then each of the two is the rationalizing factor to others.
• The rationalizing factor of a given irrational number is not unique. It is convenient to use the simplest of all R.F.s of given irrational number.
• Note:- ### Law of exponents for real numbers: ## 2. POLYNOMIALS AND FACTORIZATION

Polynomial: An algebraic expression in which the variables involved have only whole number powers is called a polynomial.

Ex: x2 , x3 + 1, x2 + xy + y2  and so on.

Polynomials in one variable: The polynomials which are in the form of (a constant) × (some power of variable) are called polynomials in one variable.

Ex: 2x, 4x, 3x2 + 1 and so on.

Degree of the polynomial: The degree of a term is the sum of the exponent of its variable factors. The degree of the polynomial is the highest power of its variable term.

Ex:  degree of 3x2 + 2x3 + 1 is 3

degree of 5x2y3 + 2xy + 3x3 is 5

a polynomial in one variable x of degree n is anxn + an-1xn-1 + …+a1x + a0. Where a0, a1…an are constants and an ≠ 0.

Types of polynomials:

1. According to no. of terms: –
 No. of non-zero terms Name of the polynomial Examples Terms 1 Monomial 3x 3x 2 Binomial -2 x + 7 -2x, 7 3 Trinomial 5x2 + 4x + 2 5x2, 4x, 2 More than 3 Multinomial 6x3 – 5x2 + 7x – 3 6x3, -5x2, x, -3

According to a degree: –

 Degree of the polynomial Name of the polynomial Example Not defined Zero polynomial 0 0 Constant polynomial -12, 4, 7 etc. 1 Linear polynomial 2x+3, x – 3 etc. 2 Quadratic polynomial 2x2 + 3x + 1, x2 – 4 etc. 3 Cubic polynomial 3x3 – 4x2 + 2x + 6 4 Bi quadratic polynomial 4x4 + 2x3 + 45x2 +9x + 7

Zero of the polynomial: Let p(x) be a polynomial, if p(x) = 0 then, x is the zero of the polynomial p(x).

Ex: p(x) = 2x – 2

P(1) = 2(1) – 2 = 2 – 2 = 0

∴ 1 is the zero of the polynomial.

Zero of the linear polynomial in one variable:

 Linear polynomial Zero of the polynomial x+ a – a x – a a ax + b -b/a ax – b b/a

Dividing polynomials:

If p(x) is divided by g(x), then there exists quotient polynomial q(x) and remainder r(x) such that

p(x) = q(x) × g(x) + r(x)

this is called division algorithm for polynomials.

Remainder theorem:

Let p(x) be a polynomial of degree greater than or equal to one and let a be any real number. If p(x) is divided by the linear polynomial (x – a), then the remainder is p(a).

Ex: if p(x) = 3x2 – 4 x + 2 is divided by the polynomial (x – 1), then find remainder.

Ans: Given p(x) = 3x2 – 4 x + 2

Remainder is p (1)

⇒ p (1) = 3(1)2 – 4 (1) + 2 = 3 – 4 + 2 = 5 – 4 = 1

∴ remainder is 1.

Factor theorem:

If p(x) s a polynomial of degree greater than or equal to one and a is any real number, then x – a is a factor of p(x), if p(a) = 0  and its converse if (x – a) is a factor of p(x), then p(a) = 0.

Ex:  if p(x) = x2 – 2x + 1, then show that (x – 1) is a factor of p(x)

Ans: given   polynomial is p(x) = x2 – 2x + 1

P (1) = (1)2 – 2(1) + 1 = 1 – 2 + 1 = 2 – 2 = 0

∴ x – 1is the factor of x2 – 2x + 1.

Algebraic identities:

(i ) (x + y)2 ≡ x2 + 2xy + y2         (ii) (x − y)2≡x2 − 2xy + y2        (iii) (x + y)(x – y)≡x2 – y2

(iv) (x + a) (x + b) ≡ x2 + (a + b) x + ab   (v) (x + y + z)2 ≡ x2 + y2 + z2 + 2xy + 2yz + 2zx

(v) (x +y)3 ≡ x3 + 3x2y + 3xy2 + y3 ≡ x3 + y3 + 3xy (x + y)

(vi) (x − y)3 ≡ x3 − 3x2y + 3xy2 + y3 ≡ x3 − y3 + 3xy (x − y)

(vii)  (x + y + z)(x2+ y2 + z2 – xy – yz – zx) ≡ x3 + y3 + z3 – 3xyz.

## 3.THE ELEMENTS OF GEOMETRY

Geometry: The word geometry derived from the Greek word ‘geo’ means earth and ‘metron’ means measure.

Euclid’s Elements:  Euclid wrote 13 books called ‘The Elements’. Euclid creates the first system of thought based on fundamental definitions, axioms, propositions rules of inference or logic.

Some definitions of Euclid’s 1st book of Elements are: (i) A ‘point’ is that that which has no part. (ii) A ‘line’ is the breathless length. (iii) The ends of a line are points. (iv) A straight line is a line which lies evenly with the points itself.  (v) A ‘surface’ is that which has length and breadth only. (vi) The edge of the surface are lines. (vii) A plane surface is a surface which lies evenly with the straight lines on itself.

Note:  In geometry, a point, a line and a plane are undefined terms.

Axioms: Axioms are statements that are self-evident or assumed to be true within the context of a particular mathematical system. Axioms are elf evident facts and do not require any proof.

Some of Euclid’s Axioms are:

1. Things which are equal to the same things are equal to another.
2. If equals are added to equals, the wholes are equal.
3. If equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are also equal.
4. Things which coincide with one another are equal to one another.
5. Things which are double of the same things are equal to one another.
6. Things that are halves of the same things are equal to one another.

Postulates: Postulates are used for the assumptions made in the geometry.

Euclid’s five postulates:

Postulate – 1: There is a unique line that passes through the given two distinct points. Postulate – 2: A line segment can be extended on either side to form a straight line. Postulate –3: We can escribe a circle with any centre and any radius. Postulate – 5: If a straight line falling on two straight line makes the interior angles on the same side of it taken together is less than two right angles, then two straight lines, if produced infinitely, meet on that side on which the sum of the angles is less than two right angles.

1. Through a point not on a given line, exactly one parallel line may be drawn o the given line (John Playfair).
2. The sum of the angles of any triangle is constant and is equal to two right angles (Legendre).
3. If a straight line intersects any one of two parallel lines, then it will intersect others also (Proclus).
4. Straight lines parallel to the same straight line are parallel to one another (Proclus).

Conjecture or Hypothesis: The statements which are neither proved nor disproved are called conjectures.

## 4. LINES AND ANGLES Line: Line can be extended in both directions endlessly. Ray:  It is a part of the line. It begins at a point and goes on endlessly in a specific direction. Line segment: A part of the line with two endpoints is called a line segment. Collinear points: If three or more points lie on the same line, then they are called collinear points.

A, B and C are collinear points Angle:  An angle is formed when two rays originate from the same point. The rays making an angle are called ‘Arms’ of the angle. The common point is called ‘vertex’. Intersecting and Non-intersecting lines:  If two lines meet at any point, then the lines are intersecting lines. If two lines never meet at any point are called non-intersecting lines or parallel lines. Concurrent lines: If two or more lines meet at the point, then that lines are called concurrent lines. Complementary angles:  Two angles are said to be complementary angles if their um is 900. The complementary angle of x0 is 900 – x0.

Supplementary angles:  Two angles are said to be supplementary angles if their um is 1800. the supplementary angle of x0 is 1800 – x0.

Linear pair of angles: If a ray stands on a straight line, then the sum of the two adjacent angles is so formed is 1800. Note: If the sum of two adjacent angles is 1800, then they are called linear pairs of angles.

If the sum of two adjacent angles is 1800, then they are called linear pairs of angles.

Note: – if the sum of two adjacent angles is 1800, then non-common arms of the angles form a line. This is the converse of a linear pair of angle axiom.

From the figure ∠ 1 + ∠2 ∠ 3 + ∠4 ∠5 = 3600

Vertically opposite angles:  When two lines intersect at a point, the angles with the same vertex and have no common arm are called vertically opposite angles.

⟹ ∠AOD = ∠BOC; ∠AOC = ∠BOD.

Lines and a transversal:

Transversal: A-line that intersects two or more lines at distinct points is called a transversal. Angles made by a transversal ∠1, ∠2, ∠7 and ∠8 are exterior angles

∠3, ∠4, ∠5 and ∠6 are interior angles

Corresponding angles: –

Two angles which are lies the same side of the transversal and one interior and another one exterior are called corresponding angles.

∠1, ∠5; ∠2, ∠6; ∠3, ∠7 and ∠4, ∠8

Alternate angles: –

Two angles which are the lies opposite sides of the transversal and both interior or exterior are called corresponding angles.

∠1, ∠7; ∠2, ∠8 are exterior alternate angles

∠3, ∠5; ∠4, ∠6 are interior alternate angles.

∠3, ∠6; ∠4, ∠5 interior angles the same side of the transversal.

Transversal on parallel lines:

⇒ ∠1, =∠5; ∠2= ∠6; ∠3= ∠7 and ∠4= ∠8

∗ If pair of parallel lines are intersected by a transversal then the angles each pair of interior alternate angles are equal.

∠3= ∠5; ∠4= ∠6

∗ If pair of parallel lines are intersected by a transversal then the angles each pair of exterior alternate angles are equal.

∠1= ∠7; ∠2= ∠8

∗ If pair of parallel lines are intersected by a transversal then the angles each pair of interior angles in the same side if the transversal are supplementary.

∠3+∠6= 1800; ∠4+ ∠5 = 1800

Note:

1. If a transversal intersects two lines and the pair of corresponding angles are equal, then the lines are parallel.
2. If a transversal intersects two lines and the pair of alternate angles are equal, then the lines are parallel.
3. If a transversal intersects two lines and the interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary, then the lines are parallel.

Note: Lines that are parallel to the same line are parallel to each other.

Angle-sum property of a triangle:

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 1800

An exterior angle of a triangle:

When one side of the triangle is produced, the angle thus formed is called the exterior angle. Exterior angle property:- The exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of two interior opposite angles. x0+ y0 = z0

## 5.CO-ORDINATE GEOMETRY

The representation of a point on a plane with the idea of two references led to the development of a new branch of mathematics is known as Co-ordinate geometry.

Rene Descartes (1595 – 1650) developed the study of coordinate geometry. He found an association between algebraic equations and geometric curves and figures.

Cartesian system:

We use number line by making points on the line at equal distance. Take two number line, perpendicular to each other in the plane. We locate the position of points with reference to these lines The point of intersection of these number lines is Origin it is denoted by ‘O’. The horizontal number line is XXI is called X-axis and the vertical number line YYI s called as Y-axis.

OX is a positive X-axis, OXΙ is a negative X-axis.

• The distance of a point from Y-axis is called x co-ordinate or
• The distance of a point from X-axis is called y co-ordinate or
• The co-ordinates of origin are (0,0).
• The x coordinate of a point on y-axis is 0.
• The y c-ordinate of a point on y-axis is 0.
• Equation of x- axis is y = 0.
• Equation of y- axis is x = 0.

## 6.LINEAR EQUATIONS IN TWO VARIABLES

Equation: The expression which is connected by equality symbol (=) is called an equation.

Ex: x = 5, x + y = 2, x2 = 2y etc.

Linear equation: If the degree of the equation is 1, then it is called linear equation.

Ex: x + 2y = 4, 3x – 5 = 0, 4y = 6 etc.

Linear equation in one variable: If a linear equation has only one variable, then it is called ‘linear equation in one variable’.

Ex: x + 3 = 4, 4x – 4 = 0, y – 3 = 0 etc.

Linear equation in two variables: If a linear equation has two variables, then it is called ‘linear equation in two variables.

Ex: x + 3y = 4, 4x – 4y = 0, y – 3x = 0 etc.

General form:

The general form of linear equation in two variables ‘x’ and ‘y’ is ax + by c = 0, where a, b, c are real numbers and a ≠ 0, b ≠ 0.

Solution: Any pair of values of ‘x’ and ‘y’ which satisfies the linear equations in two variables is called its solution.

Ex: x + y = 3

x = 2, y =1; x =1, y =2, x =0, y =3; x =3, y = 0 are some solutions of above equation.

∴ For a linear equation in two variables we can find many solutions.

Note: An easy way of getting two solutions is put x = 0 and get corresponding value of y. Similarly we can put y= 0 and get the corresponding value of x.

Graph of linear equation in two variables:

Ex: x + y = 3

Sol: Given equation is x + y = 3

y = 3 – x

 x 0 1 2 3 y = 3 – x 3 2 1 0 (x, y) (0, 3) (1, 2) (2, 1) (3, 0)

Steps to draw the graph of the linear equations in two variables:

1. Write the linear equation.
2. Put x = 0 in the given equation and find the corresponding value of y.
3. Put y = 0 in the given equation and find the corresponding value of x.
4. Write the values of ‘x’ and its corresponding value of ‘y’ as coordinates of x and y respectively as (x, y) form.
5. Plot the points on graph paper.
6. Join these points.

Observations from the graph:

• Every solution of the linear equation in two variables represents a point on the line of the equation.
• Every point on this line is a solution of the linear equation in two variables.
• Any point that does not lie on this line not a solution of the equation.
• The collection points that give the solution of the linear equation in two variables is the graph of the linear equation.

Equation of the line parallel to X – axis:

Equation of X – axis is y = 0.

Equation of any line parallel to X – axis is y = k, where k is the distance from above or below of the X – axis. Equation of the line parallel to Y – axis:

Equation of Y – axis is x = 0.

Equation of any line parallel to Y – axis is x = k, where k is the distance from left or right of the Y – axis. ## 7.TRIANGLES

Triangle: A figure made up of three-line segments is called a triangle.

Congruent figures: The figures which have same shape and same size are called congruent figures.

If two-line segments have equal in length, then they are congruent.

Congruency of Triangles:

Two triangles are said to be congruent if (i) their corresponding angles are equal (ii) their corresponding sides are equal.

Ex: In ∆ ABC, ∆ DEF ∠A ≅ ∠D; ∠B≅ ∠E; ∠C ≅ ∠F

AB ≅ DE; BC≅ EF; AC ≅ DF

∴∆ABC ≅ ∆DEF

If two triangles are congruent, then corresponding parts of congruent triangles are equal (CPCT)

Criterion for congruency of Triangles:

1.Side -Side -Side congruency (SSS):

If three side of a triangle are equal to the corresponding three sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. ∴ ∆ABC ≅ ∆DEF

2. Side -Angle -Side congruency (SAS):

If two sides and the angle included between the two sides of a triangle are equal to the corresponding two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. ∴ ∆ABC ≅ ∆DE

3.Angle – Side -Angle congruency (ASA):

If two angles and included side of a triangle are equal to the corresponding two angles and included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. ∴ ∆ABC ≅ ∆DEF

4.Right angle – Hypotenuse – Side congruence (RHS):

If the hypotenuse and one side of a right-angled triangle are equal to the corresponding hypotenuse and side of the other right-angled triangle, then the triangles are Equal. ∴∆ABC ≅ ∆DEF

5.A.S congruence: If two triangles are congruent if any two pairs of angles and one pair of corresponding angles are equal.

Some properties of triangle:

1.Angles opposite to equal side of an Isosceles triangle are equal.

2.The sides opposite to equal angles of a triangle are equal.

3.The sum of the any two sides of the tringle is greater than the third side.

4.The difference of any two sides of a triangle is less than the third side. Diagonal: The line segment joining any two opposite sides of a quadrilateral is called diagonal of the quadrilateral.

In a quadrilateral there are 4 interior angles. The sum of these 4 angles is 3600. ⇒ sum of the angles in a quadrilateral ABCD = 3600

i.e., ∠A + ∠B+ ∠C + ∠D = 3600

Trapezium: In a quadrilateral one pair of opposite sides are parallel, then it is called Trapezium. Parallelogram:  In a quadrilateral two pair of opposite sides are parallel, then it is called parallelogram. Properties of parallelogram:

Mid-point theorem:

The line segment joining the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and half of it. In ∆ABC, D, E are mid points of side AB and AC ⇒DE ∥ BC and DE = ½ BC.

Converse of mid-point theorem:

The line drawn through the mid-point of one of the sides of a triangle and parallel to another side will bisect the third side.

## 11.AREAS

Planar region:

The part of the plane enclosed by a simple closed figure is called a planar region corresponding to that figure. Area:

The magnitude or measure of the planer region corresponding to the figure is called its area. The area of a figure is a number associated with the part of the plane enclosed by the figure.

The unit area is the area of square of a side of unit length.

∎ The area of the rectangle whose length ‘l’ and breadth ‘b’ is l × b square units. The areas of two congruent figures are equal. If two figures have same area, they need not be congruent.

parallelograms on the same base and between the same parallel are equal in area. Parallelograms ABCD and ABQP have same base AB and lies between the parallel sides AB and QD

∴ Area of parallelogram ABCD = Area of parallelogram ABQP.

If a triangle and parallelogram have same base and lies between the parallel lines, then area of the triangle is equal to half of the area of the parallelogram. Area of the triangle APB = ½ (Area of the parallelogram ABCD)

If two triangles same base and lies between the parallel lines, then areas of triangles are equal. Area of ∆ABC = Area of ∆ABD.

The median of the triangle divides it in to two triangles of equal area. Area of ∆ABD = Area of ∆ADC.

## 12.CIRCLES

Circle:

A circle is a collection of all points in a plane which are at a constant distance from a fixed point on the plane. Fixed point is called centre of the circle and constant distance is called radius of the circle.

A circle divides the plane in to three parts: (i) inside the circle (interior of the circle) (ii) on the circle (iii) out side the circle (exterior of the circle). Points A, B are the interior of the circle

Points G, C are on the circle

Points D, E and F are exterior of the circle

Chord: A line segment joining any two points on the circle is called chord of the circle. AB is the chord

Arc: The part of the circle between ant two points on it is called Arc of the circle. If the arc is smaller than the semicircle, then it is called ‘minor arc’

If the arc is greater than the semicircle, then it is called ‘major arc’

Segment: The region between the chord and the minor arc is called minor segment.

The region between the chord and the major segment is called the major segment.

Sector: The area enclosed by an arc and the two radii joining the centre to the end points of an arc is called a sector.

Equal chords of a circle subtend equal angles at the centre.

If the angle subtended by the chords of a circle at the centre are equal, then the chords are equal.

The perpendicular from the centre of the circle to a chord bisects the chord.

If a line drawn from the centre of the circle bisects the chord then the line is perpendicular to that chord.

There is one and only one circle that passes through three non- collinear points.

Arcs of Equal length subtend equal angles at the centre.

The angle subtended by an arc at the centre is twice the angle subtended by it on the remaining arc of the circle.

Angle subtended by an arc in the same segment are equal.

If line segment joining two points, subtends equal angle at two other points lying on the same side of the line then the four points lie on a circle.

Concyclic points:

The points which are lie on the same circle are called concyclic points.

If the vertices of a quadrilateral lie on the same circle, then it is called cyclic quadrilateral. The pairs of opposite angles of acyclic quadrilateral are supplementary.

If the sum of any pair of opposite angles in a quadrilateral is 1800, then the quadrilateral is cyclic.

Step – 4: Join CD and Draw the perpendicular bisector of CD to BD at A. Step – 5: Join A to C get the required triangle ABC. To construct a triangle, given its perimeter and its two base angles:

Construct triangle ABC, in which ∠A = 600, ∠B = 300 and AB + BC + CA = 10cm.

Steps of construction:

Step – 1: Draw a rough sketch of ∆ABC. Step – 2: Draw a line segment XY = 10 cm. Step – 3: Construct ∠YXC = 150 and ∠XYC = 300 which are angular bisectors of ∠B and ∠A respectively and they meet at C. Step – 4: Draw the perpendicular bisectors of CX and CY to intersect XY At B and A respectively.

Step – 5: Join BC and AC, ∆ABC is the required triangle. To construct a circle segment given a chord and given an angle:

Construct a segment of a circle on a chord of length 8 cm and containing the angle of 600

Step – 1: Draw a rough sketch of ∆ABC. Step – 2: Draw a line segment AB = 8 cm. Step – 3: Draw a ray AX such that ∠BAX = 300 and draw ray BY such that ∠ABY = 300 Step – 4: With centre ‘O’ and radius OA or OB, draw the circle. Step – 5: Mark a point C on the arc of the circle. Join AC and BC. We get ∠ACB = 600 ## 14. PROBABILITY

Random Experiment: If in an experiment all the possible outcomes are known in advance and none of the out comes can be predicted with certainty, then such an experiment is called a random experiment.

Ex: Throwing a die, Tossing A coin.

Events: The possible out comes of a trail are called events.

To measure the chance of its happening numerically we classify them as follows:

Certain: Something that must happen

Equally likely: some thing that have the same chance of occurring.

Less likely: Something that would occur with less chance.

More likely: Something that would occur with more chance.

Impossible: Some thing that cannot be happen.

## 15.PROOFS IN MATHEMATICS

Statements:  The sentences that can be judged to be true or false but not both, are called statements. The mathematical statements are cannot be ambiguous.

Hypothesis: A statement of an idea which gives an explanation to a sense of observation is called Hypothesis.

Mathematical proof: A process which can establish the truth of a mathematical statement based purely on logical arguments is called a mathematical proof.

Conjecture:  The statements which are neither proved nor disproved are called Conjecture.

Axiom: The statements which are assumed to be without proof are called axioms.

Theorem: A mathematical statement whose truth has been established or proved is called Theorem.

Proof: A proof is made up of a successive sequence of mathematical statements.

Deductive reasoning: The logical reasoning which is used in the establishment of the truth of an un – ambiguous statement is called Deductive reasoning.

Inductive reasoning: The reasoning which is based on examining of variety of cases discovering pattern and forming conclusion is called inductive reasoning.
