Ali and Borhan start to collect stamps at the same time. (a) Ali collects p stamps in the first month and his collection increase constantly by q stamps every subsequent month. He collects 220 stamps in the 7 th month and the total collection for the first 12 month are 2520 stamps. Find the value of p and q. [5 marks] (b) Borhan collects 60 stamps in the first month and his collection increase constantly by 25 stamps every subsequent month. If both of them collect the same number of stamps in the nth month, find the value of n. [2 marks]

## Diagram 3 shows part of an arrangement of circle of equal size.

10 cm Diagram 3 The number of circles in the lowest row is 80. For each of the other rows, the number of circles is 3 less than in the row below. The diameter of each circle is 10 cm . The number of circles in the highest row is 5. Calculate (a) the height, in cm, of the arrangement of circles [3 marks] (b) the total length of the circumference of circles, in terms of
