## QUESTION 1

**(1a)
Given A={2,4,6,8,…}
B={3,6,9,12,…}
C={1,2,3,6}
U= {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}**

A’ = {1,3,5,7,9}

B’ = {1,2,4,5,7,8,10}

C’ = {4,5,7,8,9,10}

A’nB’nC’ = {5, 7}

(1b)

Cost of each premiere ticket = $18.50

At bulk purchase, cost of each = $80.00/50 = $16.00

Amount saved = $18.50 – $16.00

=$2.50

## QUESTION 2

**(2ai)
P = (rk/Q – ms)⅔
P^3/2 = rk/Q – ms
rk/Q = P^3/2 + ms
Q= rk/P^3/2 + ms**

(2aii)

When P =3, m=15, s=0.2, k=4 and r=10

Q = rk/p^3/2 + ms = 10(4)/(3)^3/2 + (15)(0.2)

= 40/8.196 = 4.88(1dp)

(2b)

x + 2y/5 = x – 2y

Divide both sides by y

X/y + 2/5 = x/y – 2

Cross multiply

5(x/y) – 10 = x/y + 2

5(x/y) – x/y = 2 + 10

4x/y = 12

X/y = 3

X : y = 3 : 1

## QUESTION 3

**(3a)
Diagram
CBD = CDB (base angles an scales D)
BCD+CBD+CDB=180° (Sum of < in a D)
2CDB+BCD=180°
2CDB+108°=180°
2CDB=180°-108°=72°
CDB=72/2=36°
BDE=90°(Angle in semi circle)
CDE=CDB+BDE
=36°+90
=126**

(3b)

(Cosx)² – Sinx given

(Sinx)² + Cosx

Using Pythagoras theory thrid side of triangle

y²= 1²+√3

y²= 1+ 3=4

y=√4=2

(Cosx)² – sinx/(sinx)² + cosx

(1/2)² – √3/2/

(√3/2)² + 1/2 = 1/4 – √3/2 = 1-2√3/4

3/4+1/2 = 3+2/4

=1-2√3/4 * 4/5

=1-2√3/5

## QUESTION 4

**(4a)
Total Surface Area = 224πcm²
r:l = 2:5
r/l = 2/5
Cross multiply
2l/2 = 5r/2
L = 5r / 2
Total surface = πrl + πr²
= πr (l + r)
24π/π = πr (5r/2 + r )/ π
224 = 5r²/2 + r²/1
L.c.m = 2
448 = 5r² + 2r²
448 / 7= 7r²/7
r² = 64
r = √64 = 8cm
L = 5*8/2 = 20cm**

(4b)

Volume = 1/2πr²h

= 1/3 * 22/7 * 8 * 8 * 18.33

= 1228.98cm³

L² = h² + r ²

20² = h² + 8²

400 – 64 = h²

h² = 336

h = √ 336

h = 18.33cm

## QUESTION 5

**(5a)
Total income = 32+m+25+40+28+45
=170+m
PR(²)=m/170+m = 0.15/1
M=0.15(170+m)
M=25.5+0.15m
0.85m/0.85=25.5/0.85
M=30
+=====================**

**(5b)
Total outcome = 170 + 30 = 200**

(5c)

PR(even numbers) = 30+40+50/200

=115/200 = 23/40

**QUESTION 8**

**(8a)
Let Ms Maureen’s Income = Nx
1/4x = shopping mall
1/3x = at an open market**

Hence shopping mall and open market = 1/4x + 1/3x

= 3x + 4x/12 = 7/12x

Hence the remaining amount

= X-7/12x = 12x-7x/12 =5x/12

Then 2/5(5x/12) = mechanic workshop

= 2x/12 = x/6

Amount left = N225,000

Total expenses

= 7/12x + X/6 + 225000

= Nx

7x+2x+2,700,000/12 =Nx

9x + 2,700,000 = 12x

2,700,000 = 12x – 9x

2,700,000/3 = 3x/3

X = N900,000

(ii) Amount spent on open market = 1/3X

= 1/3 × 900,000

= N300,000

(8b)

T3 = a + 2d = 4m – 2n

T9 = a + 8d = 2m – 8n

-6d = 4m – 2m – 2n + 8n

-6d = 2m + 6n

-6d/-6 = 2m+6n/-6

d = -m/3 – n

d = -1/3m – n

======================

## QUESTION 9

**(9a)
Draw the triangle**

(9b)

(i)Using cosine formulae

q² = x² + y² – 2xycosQ

q² = 9² + 5² – 2×9×5cos90°

q² = 81 + 25 – 90 × 0

q² = 106

q = square root 106

q = 10.30 = 10km/h

Distance = 10 × 2 = 20km

(ii)

Using sine formula

y/sin Y = q/sin Q

5/sin Y = 10.30/sin 90°

Sin Y = 5 × sin90°/10.30

Sin Y = 5 × 1/10.30

Sin Y = 0.4854

Y = sin‐¹(0.4854), Y = 29.04

Bearing of cyclist X from y

= 90° + 19.96°

= 109.96° = 110°

(9c)

Speed = 20/4, average speed = 5km/h

**(11a)
Diagram**

(11b)

Given 8y+4x=24

8y=-4x + 24

y=4/8x + 24/8

y=-1/2x +3

Gradient = -1/2

Using m = y-y/x-x¹ and given (x¹=-8) (y¹=12)

-1/2=y-12/x+8

2(y-12)=-x-8

2y-24=-x-8

2y+x=24-8

2y+x=16
