## - 1km = 1000m = 100000cm

- 1km = 1000000m =10000000000cm
Direct Proportion
-y = kx , where k is a constant
-The graph of y=kx is a straight line passing through the origin.
-The more you buy, the more you pay

Example (1) :
The following table shows the travelling time of (t hours) and
distance covered (y km) by a car.

## Since y/t = 60 is a constant, t and y are in direct proportion.

Example (2):
Given that y is directly proportion to x and y = 30 for a particular
value of x. Find the value of y when x is halved.
y = kx
30 = kx -------------------- Equation 1
y = k(x)(1/2 )
k (x / 4)
kx ---------------------Equation 2
y = (30)
= 7.5

Example (3):
The braking distance of a car is directly proportional to the square of
its speed. When the speed is p metres per second, the braking
distance is 6m. When the speed is increased by 300 %, find
a) an expression for the speed of the car
b) the braking distance,
c) the percentage increase in the braking distance
a) Let Braking distance be D metres
Let Speed be s metres per second
D = ks
s = 100 %
4s = 300% + 100%
D = k(4s)
D = k16s
The expression for the speed of the car is Dk16s
b) D = k16s
When the speed is p metres per second, braking distance = 6m.
D = ks
6 = kp
D = 16kp
16 x 6 = 16kp
16 x 6 = 96
Therefore, the braking distance is 96m.
c) 90/6 x 100% = 1500%

## Therefore, the percentage increase is 1500%.

Example (4) :
The volume of a sphere, V cm , is directly proportional to the
cube of its radius, r cm. When the radius increased by 50%, find
the percentage increase in the volume of the sphere.
V = 4.19r

## Amount of increase in r = 50% of r

= 50/100 x r
=0.5r
New r = 1r + 0.5r = 1.5r
New volume = New V = 4.19 (1.5r)
= 14.14125r
14.14125r - 4.19r = 9.95125r
Percentage increase = 9.95125r / 4.19r x 100% = 237.5 %

Inverse proportion
- xy = k, where k is constant
- The more people, the lesser time
The lesser people, the more time

Example (1):
A car travels uniformly from A to B. The following table shows the
time take (t hours) at various speeds (v km/h).

## In the above table, vt = 200 is a constant. Hence, t and v are in

inverse proportion.
Example (2):
Given that y is inversely proportional to 2x and y = 30 for a
particular value of x. Find the value of y when x is tripled.
y = k/2x
30 = k/2x ------------------------- equation 1
y = k/3(2x)
y = k/6x
y = 1/3 (k/2x) --------------------equation 2
y = 1/3 (30)
= 10

## Simple Algebraic Fractions

Expansion
- (a+b) = a + 2ab + b
- (a-b) = a - 2ab + b
- (a+b)(a-b) = a + b
Example (1):
Evaluate each of the following, using special products of algebraic
expressions.
a) 103 = (100+3)
= 100 + 2(100)(3) + 3
= 10000 + 600 + 9
= 10609
b) 301 x 299 = (300+1) x (300-1)
= 300 - 1
= 90000 1
= 89999
Factorisation
Factorise by 1) common term
2) Grouping (involve 4 term)
3) Using (a+b)(a-b) = (a) (b)
a + 2ab + b = (a+b)
a - 2ab + b = (a-b)
4) Cross method
Example (1):
Find the value of each of the following by factorization.
a) 200.5 - 199.5 = (200.5-199.5)(200.5+199.5)
= (1)(400)
= 400
= 20
b) (a + 3b) - (2c + d) = [(a + 3b)-(2c + d)][(a + 3b)+(2c+d)]
= [ a + 3b - 2c - d ][a + 3b + 2c +d]
c) z (x) - 625 = (z) - (25)
= ( z - 25) (z + 25)
= ( z-5)(z + 5)(z + 5) = (z-5)(z+5xz+ 25)
d) x - 4xy 4y -4 = ( x-2y)(x 2y) - 2
= ( x-2y-2)(x-2y+2)
e) A ball is thrown from the top of a building. Its vertical height H
(in m) above the ground at time t seconds during the flight is
given by the formula, H = 90 + 15t 5t.
Find the height of the building.
t=0

H = 90+15(0)-5(0)
= 90m
Changing the subject of a formula
- In the formula, A = 0.5(a+b)h,

Example (1):
Make h the subject in
S=rh+r
S=r(h+r)
S/ r = h + r
S/ r - r = h
S/ r - r = h
h = S/ r - r
Example (2):
Make V the subject
1/u + 1/v = 1/f
fv/fuv + fu/fuv = vu/fuv
fv + fu
= vu
fv vu
= -fu
v(f-u)
= -fu
v
= -fu/f-u
Example (3):
Make g the subject
T = 2 L/g
T = 4 (L/g)
T/4 = L/g
Tg = 4 L
g = 4 L/T
Multiplication and Division of Algebraic Fractions
- (P/Q) X ( R/S) = PR/QS
- ( P/Q) / (R/S) = P/ Q x S/R
= PS/QR
Addition and Subtraction of Algebraic Fractions
-First find the denominators of individual fractions in an expression.
-Expand each fraction in the given expression to an equivalent one
with the denominator.
Example (1):
a)a-b/1 + (2ab/a-b) = (a b) /a-b + 2ab/a-b
= a +b -2ab+2ab/a-b

=a + b/a-b
Example (2):
a)2x/x+3 5x-1/2x-6 = 2x/x+3 (5x-1/2(x-3))
=2x(2)/2(x-3) (5x-1/2(x-3))
=4x/2(x-3) 5x+1/2(x-3)
= 1-x/2(x-3)

sixe,
- all corresponding angles are equal
- all corresponding sides are equal
Congruent Triangles are like twin, they are exactly the same in
term of shapes and sizes.
Below are the methods of identifying them
-SSS
All sides of the two triangles must be exactly the same
-SAS
2 sides and 1 included angle must be the same
-AAS
2 adjacent angles and 1 side must be the same
-RHS
1 right angle, 1 hypotenuse and 1 side must be the same
Similarity

different sizes,
- all their corresponding angles are equal
- all the ratios of their corresponding sides are equal
Scale Factor
