(b) Let us assume that 2 is a rational number, then


2

p
q

------(1)

Where p and q are integers, co-prime to each other and q 0 .


On squaring both sides, we get

p2
p2 2q2 (2)
q2

By eq. (2) we can say that p2 is an even integer


p is also an even integer ( the square of an even integer is always even)
Let p = 2k, where k is an integer.
From (2),

p2 = 2q2
(2k)2 = 2q2
4k 2 = 2q2 q2 = 2k 2
q2 is an even integer, q is also an even integer.

p and q have a common factor 2 which contradicts the hypothesis that p, q are coprime to each other.
2 is an irrational number.

(b) Let his starting salary be Rs. x and the fixed annual increment be Rs. y
Salary after 4 years = x + 4y
According to question,
x + 4y = 1500 ------(i)
And salary after 10 years = x + 10y
x + 10y = 1800 ------(ii)
(i) - (ii)

Putting the value of y in (i)
x + 4y = 1500
x + 4 50 = 1500 x = 1300
Starting salary = Rs. 1300 and Annual increment = Rs. 50
