#### Time and Clock

Time and Clock   Learning Objectives
• Time and Clock
Time and clock Clock is a device which is used to measure and display the time. The face or dial of a clock is divided into 60 equal parts called minute space and it is numbered from 1 to 12, in such a way that each subsequent number is equidistant (5 minutes spaces apart) from the preceding number. A clock has two hands, the smaller one is the hour hand/ while larger one is called the minute hand. When hour hand travels five minutes spaces, the minute hand travels 60 minutes spaces. Therefore, in 60 minutes the minute hand gains 55 minute on the hour hand. Properties of clock
• In 60 minutes/ the minute hand gains 55 minutes on the hour hand,
• A clock is said to be too fast, if it shows time more than that of shown by a correct clock.
• A clock is said to be too slow, if it shows time less than that of shown by a correct clock.
• In every hour, both the hands coincide once.
• When the two hands are at right angle, they are 15 minutes spaces apart.
• When the two hands are in opposite directions, they are 30 minutes spaces apart, this situation occurs once in a hour.
• The hands of a clock are in straight line when they are coincident or opposite to each other.
• Hour hand of a clock takes 12 hours to trace the angle of $360{}^\circ$.
• Minute hand of a clock takes 1 hour to trace the angle of $360{}^\circ$.
Example 1 Choose the time from the following options when the hands of a clock will be in the same straight line. (a) 4:00 p.m.                           (b) 8:00 p.m. (c) 7:00 p.m.                          (d) 6:00 p.m. (e) None of these   Answer (d) Explanation: The two hands of a clock are in the same straight line when they are either coincident or 30 minutes spaces apart from each other. At 4:00 p.m., the minute hand will be 20 minutes spaces apart from the hour hand. So option (a) is incorrect. At 8:00 p.m., the minute hand will be 20 minutes spaces apart from the hour hand. So option (b) is incorrect. At 7:00 p.m., the minute hand will be 25 minutes spaces apart from the hour hand. So option (c) is incorrect. At 6:00 p.m., the minute hand will be 30 minutes spaces apart from the hour hand. So option (d) is correct. Therefore, the correct answer is 6 : 00 p.m.   Between 2 O'clock to 10 O'clock, how many times the hands of a clock are at right angle? (a) 14                                      (b) 12 (c) 16                                       (d) 15 more...

#### Algebra

Algebra   Learning Objectives
• Algebra
• Ratio
• Proportion
Algebra Algebra is generalized arithmetic in which unknown or unspecified numbers are represented by using letters known as literals.   Constant and variable: A symbol having a fixed numerical value is called a constant and a symbol which takes on various numerical values is known as variables., Example: $8,-25,\text{ }6\frac{6}{11},\,3\frac{1}{2}$ are examples of constants whereas a, b, c, u, u x and y are examples of variables. Algebraic expression: An algebraic expression composed of arithmetic numbers, letters and signs of operation.   Example: $5x+8,\text{ }9y+3x$ and 8z are examples of algebraic expressions. Terms of an expression: Various parts of an algebraic expression separated by the signs plus (+) or minus (-) are known as the terms of the expression. Example: The algebraic expression $6x+8y+9$ have three terms, 6x, 8y and 9. Monomial: An algebraic expression having only one term is known as monomial. Example: $2,5x,6xy$ and$-89xyz$ are examples of monomials. Binomial: An algebraic expression having two terms is known as binomial. Example: $2x+y,3z+5y$ and $x+8$are examples of binomials, Trinomial: An algebraic expression having three terms is known as trinomial Example: $x+y-9,\text{ }5a+6b+c$ and $5x+xy+9$ are examples of trinomials. Polynomial: An algebraic expression containing two or more terms is called polynomial, Example: $5x+6,\text{ }7x+8y+9$and $15+xy+9y+8x$ are examples of polynomials, Factor: A factor is any one of two or more numbers that are multiplied together. Example: 5 and x are factors of 5x. Coefficients: In a product of numbers and literals, any of the factors is called the coefficient of the product of other factors. Example: In 7xy, the coefficient of x is 7y and the coefficient of y is 7x. Like terms: The terms which have the same literal factors are called like or similar terms. Example: 7x, 9x, x are examples of like terms. Unlike terms: The terms which have different literal factors are called unlike or dissimilar terms. Example: $5x,3xy,7xz$ are examples of unlike terms. Algebraic equation: An equation is a mathematical statement equating two quantities. Example: $x+9=15,\text{ }5x-8=3x$ and $3x-7=4$ are examples of algebraic equations. Solution of equation: The value of the variable in an equation which satisfies the equation is called solution of the equation. Example: $x+9=20$, here the value $~x=11$ satisfies the equation/ therefore $~x=11$ is the solution of the equation $x+9=20$.   Ratio   The ratio of two quantities of the same kind and in the same units is a fraction which shows how many times the one quantity is of other.   Example If a and b are two physical quantities of same kind and in the same units, then the fraction $\frac{a}{b}$is called the ratio of a to b and denoted as a : b. Here a and b are called terms of the ratio. The former 'a' is called the first term or antecedent and the latter b is called second term of consequent Note 1: A ratio is unchanged if the two more...
