Q2.a
If we re-arrange the equation before simplyfying :

= (2x+3y)(a b)

## Q1a. Jun 2009

**********************************************************

## step 1. simplifying the numerator :

2
1 8 6
58
2 1 =
=
3
5 3 5
15

(LCM = 15)

= 5 x2 4

now

5x 20

and

5 x 2

5 x 2 x 2

**********************************************************

and p+q =b

2 32
6 =
5 5

## step 3. Divide Numerator by denominator:

58 32

15 5
58 5

=
15 32

that is: p + q = 4

...

eqn1

and

..eqn2

## we can see that p = 9 and q = -4 will satisfy the above

equations:

29
48

Alternatively
The LCM of 3, 5 = 15
so we multiply the numerator and the denominator by 15
giving:

4018
96

2b.

1 biscuit + 2 cone = \$8
3 biscuit + 1 cone = \$9

x + 2y = 8 ...1
3x + y = 9 ....2

## Solving the simultaneous equations gives:

Multiply equation 2 by 2 :

29
58
=
48
96

3x x 3 5 x 3

**********************************************************

now
and

2

1 15

2
6 15
5

2
3x 9x 5x 15 =

3x 5 x3

pq = -45

x + 2y = 8
6x + 2y = 18

...1
....2

subtracting 1 from 2

**********************************************************

b)
so:

0.0256= 0.15

0.15
2
5

and 25 =
0.15
5

so:

= 0.03 =

5x = 10
x = 2, and y = 3

3 10

********************************************************

**********************************************************

1.b
Hourly rate =

basic wage
basic hours

\$ 560
40

= \$14/hr

## Overtime rate = (1.5) x basic rate = 1.5 x 14 = \$21/hr

so wage for 10 hrs overrtime = 10 x 21 = \$210
now 55 hrs = 40hrs ( basic) + 15 hrs (overtime)

## total wage = 40 1415 21 = \$875

## Now: we note that f x can be constructed by:

forward steps: Multiply x by 2, then subtract 5
giving f x= 2 x 5

Q3
U=50
Phone = 23

Camera =18

x=9

23 - x

## To find the inverse using the reversing method:

Reverse steps: Add 5, and then devide by 2

Q4.
From Table: Distance travelled = 1083-957 = 126 km
Time = 9.07-8:55 = 12 min = (12/60) h

126
12 / 60

Speed =

= 630 km/h

b)
For a scale of 1:50,000
Distance LM measures 7cm = 7 x 50,000 = 350,000 cm
= 3.5 Km
If actual distance between two points = 4.5 km.
Then let number of cm be x:

Q5.

Given

f x and

g x

then

f 2 = 22 5= 9

also:

so:

## The minimum value of the function occurs when

i.e when x = 0.75

Section 2
Question 9.
To solve the equations simultaneously, we first equate the
linear and quadratic equations and then solve:
=

4 2x

## The minimum value of the function

i.e f min ( x) = 0.125
so:

2x 3x 1

x=h

f min ( x)= k

## By collecting like terms and simplifying:

d) and e)

4 = 2x 2 x1

2x x3=0

(a = 2, b = - 1 and c = - 3)

## The roots of this function are found when

2
2 x0.75 0.125 = 0

To solve the above, we must find two numbers p & q such that:

pq = ac and p+q = b
i.e

pq = -6;

2
2x x3=0 =

2x 2x 3x 3=0

2x x1 3 x 1=0

2x 3 x 1 = 0

either

x 0.75 =

0.125
2

x = 0.75

x = 0.75 0.25

and p+q = - 1

## the values are ( p = -3, and q = 2)

so

x= 1.5 , or

0.125
2

x = 0.5 or x =1

x=1

*********************************************
b) If
The

the square: viz
Note that the quadratic equation can be re-written as:

## Max. Profit occurs at one of the three Vertices.

Profit on guitar = \$60 and profit on violin = \$100
Profit Equation =
1. Vertex (5, 5)
2. Vertex (10, 10)
3. Vertex (20, 5)

60x100y

## Profit = 5x \$60 + 5 x \$100 = \$800

Profit = 10x 60 + 10 x 100 = \$1,600
Profit = 20x \$60 + 5 x \$100 = \$1,700

## so maximum profit = \$1,700

Total cost of guitars and violin :
= 20 x \$150 + 5 x \$300 = \$4,500
