On the basis of the above information, answer the following question:

**(i)** Find the probability that the age of the selected student is a composite number. 1

#### Case study – 2

**37.** A housing society wants to commission a swimming pool for its residents. For this, they have to purchase a square piece of land and dig this to such a depth that its capacity is 250 cubic metres. Cost of land is Rs 500 per square metre. The cost of digging increases with the depth and cost for the whole pool is Rs 4000 (depth)²

Suppose the side of the square plot is x metres and depth is h metres. On the basis of the above information, answer the following question:

**(i)** Write cost C(h) as function in terms of h. 1

**(ii)** Find critical point. 1

**(iii) (a)** Use second derivative test to find the value of h for which cost of constructing the pool is minimum. What is the minimum cost of construction of the pool ? 2

** OR**

**(iii) (b)** Use first derivative test to find the depth of the pool so that cost of construction is minimum. Also, find relation between x and h for minimum cost. 2

#### Case study – 3

**38.** In an agriculture institute, scientists do experiments with varieties of seeds to grow them in different environments to produce healthy plants and get more yield.

A scientist observed that a particular seeds grew very fast after germination. He had recorded growth of plant since germination and he said that its growth can be defined by the function

f(x) = 1/3 x³ – 4 x² + 15 x + 2, 0 ≤ x ≤ 10

where x is the number of days the plant is exposed to sunlight.

On the basis of the above information, answer the following questions :

**(i)** What are the critical points of the function f(x) ? 2

**(ii)** Using second derivative test, find the minimum value of the function. 2
