The figures

To find:

The average of *u, v, w, x* and *y *

Solution:

Topic(s): Complementary angles, sum of angles in a triangle

*x* + *y* = 90 (*x *and *y *are complementary angles)

*u + v + w = *180 (sum of angles in a triangle = 180)

Average of *u, v, w, x, y,* and *z* =

**Answer: (E) 54**

**8. Correct answer: (C)**

Given:

*x*, *x*^{2} and *x*^{3} lie on the number line in the order shown in the figure

To find:

Which of the following could be the value of *x*

Solution:

In order for *x*^{3} < *x*^{2} < *x*, the range of *x* is 0 < *x* < 1

The answer is then (C)

**Answer: (C) **

**9. Correct answer: (A)**

Given:

The figure

Line *l* passes through the origin

To find:

The value of

Solution:
