** Please see the original past paper for the questions. Q1. b
obligations. To assess which size carton of orange is the better buy, we
********************************************************** must determine the cost per ml .

## Q1a. (i)May 2013 So for carton (350ml):

\$4.2
Since the exact value for the expression is requested, do cost per ml = = 1.2 cents per ml
350
not convert to decimal.

## Step1: Simplify the numerator viz: and for carton (450ml) :

\$5.13
cost per ml = = 1.14 cents per ml
4 1 450
1
5 3
9 1
= (LCM = 15) The better buy is therefore carton size (450 ml) as it costs
5 3 less than carton size(350ml)
27 5
=
15
Q1. c
22
= Principal (P) = \$9,600
15 Interest (r) = 8%
after first year Time (T) = 1 year
Step 2: Simplify the denominator viz:
2 Interest after first year = 8% of \$9600
2 8
5 = 9600 = \$768
12 100
=
5
Total amount owing after first year = Principal + Interest
Step 3: Invert denominator and multiply by numerator = (9600 + 768) = \$10,368

## 5 22 1 22 1 11 Amount repaid at end of first year = \$4, 368

= = so amount still owing at beginning of second year is:
12 15 12 3 6 3
= 10,368 4,368 = \$6,000
11
= Interest due after second year is 8% of \$6000

6000 = \$480

2 a) (i) 2b (i)
The first thing to note is that we can factor 2x from both To make C the subject:
terms in (i) to get: 2x ( x2 4)
Step Action Result
The term in bracket is now the familiar difference of two
squares , where: 1 Move (32) to the LHS 9
F-32 = C
5
2
x 4=( x+2 )( x2) 2 5 5
Mul both sides by ( F 32 ) =C
9 9
so the the completely factorized espression is:
3 Swap RHS with LHS 5
C= ( F 32 )
2x ( x+2)( x2 ) 9
2 a) (ii)

From the question paper, we can see that the coefficients of 2b (ii) If F = 113 then
5
C= (11332) = 45
a = 3, b = -5 and c = -2 9

we must now identify two numbers whose product = ac 2c (i) Total tickest sold = 500
and whose sum = b
so if x tickets were sold for \$6 each then
now : ac = 32 = 6
and b = 5
a) (500 x) tickets were sold for \$10 each
The challenge is now to find two numbers whose product is b) total money collected = 6x+10(500 x)
(- 6) and whose sum is (-5 )
= 6x + 5000 10x
Condition 1 = 5000 - 4x
The pair of numbers must multiply to give negative 6, so one
number must be negative.
2c(ii)
Condition 2
The pair of numbers must add (sum) to give negative 5, so the If amount collected is known to be \$4108 then:
bigger number must be negative.

## Pairs of numbers are: 4108 = 5000 4x so

(- 6) and (+1) product = - 6 and sum = -5
(-3) and (+2) product = - 6 and sum = -1 4x = 5000 4108
5000 4108
clearly the first pair of numbers that match our criteria is the giving: x =
4
first pair of ( - 6 ) and ( +1)
= 223 tickets were sold for \$6 each.
Now we must rewrite the original quadratic equation, and
replace the coefficient of the middle term ( which is -5) with
the pair of numbers that we just found. ( - 6, and +1)

## Note that: -6+1 =-5

2
Rewriting we get : = 3x 6x+ x 2
= 3x ( x 2)+( x2) grouping

From the information given on the past paper, the ven
diagram is produced showingthe number of each student in

Triangle ABC and ADE are similar because their
corresponding angles are equal.:(see diag. on past paper)
The equation for the total students in the survey is:
1. AED= ACB
3 a. (ii) 30 = 4x + x + 20-x +2 2. ADE= ABC
3. Both Triangles share a common angle in CAB

From the diagranm of the past paper, we can find BC for this
right angled trialgle as follows:

Let length BC = x

## then: 82 +x 2=10 2 ( pythagoras)

so x= ( 102 82 )
giving: x = BC = 6

4b i) Finding Gradient of line AB (m AB ) Let the equation of the perpendicular bisector be:
y = m 2 x +c
Given A(-1, 4) and B(3,2) then
where m2 is the gradient , and c is the imtercept
y2 y 1
Let the gradient of Line AB = m1 =
x2 x 1 Finding the gradient
Now recall that the perpendicular bisector must have a

## where x1, y1 are the coordinates of point A gradient such that m 1 m 2 =1

and x 2, y 2 are the coordinates of point B 1 1
m2 = = =2
x 1 =1 and y1= 4 m1 0.5
so : Point A
and x 2= 3 and y 2 =2 .. Point B
Finding the intercept c
recall also that the perpendicular bisector passes through the
24 2 1
so m1 = = = = 0.5 mid point of line AB, so one point on the perpendicular
3(1) 4 2 bisector is the mid point coordinates ( 1, 3) of line AB

## So by substituting the coordinates (1, 3) , and the gradient

4b ii) Finding Mid point coordinates of AB ( xm , ym ) m 2 = 2 into the equation for the perpendicular bisector we
get can find the intercept c.

Now if A is proportional to R2 1 Replace f(x) with y 2x+1
Then we may write this as: y=
3
A R2 2 Interchange x and y 2y+1
x=
A=k R 2 .... where k is a constant 3
3 Make y the subject 3x = 2y +1
now from the table when A = 36, R = 3
3x 1 = 2y
so 36 = k (32 )
3x 1
36 =y
2
hence k = 2 =4
(3 )
3x 1
also , when R = 5 , A= 4(5 2 ) = 100 so: y=

R 3 5 7

## Now given f(x) and g(x) as shown on the past paper:

to find fg(2) we must first find g(2) by substituting 2 into the
function g(x).

## now since g(2) = 13, then fg(2) is the same as f(13)

so by substituting 13 in the function f(x) we get:

2 (13)+1
fg(2) is the same as f(13) = = 9

5 + 0 = 5
now
so

54km/h = 54,000m/h () ( ) ()
6 3 3
The fig below shows the image after the translation
also 1 h = 3600 sec
so 54,000m/h means that the car will travel 54,000
54,000
meters in 3600 sec or = = 15 meters in
3600
1 sec

54km/hr = 15m/s

## Now Distance = Speed x Time

so if the speed if 15 m/s, then after 20 seconds :

## Distance = 1520 = 300m

Q 7a) ( i) Statistics

Q 7c.i)
1. The median Q2 correspond to the 1/2 n th ranked student,
where n = 40
So the median amount spent corresponds to the amount spent by the 20th ranked
student on the curve.
median = \$31

Q 7c.ii)
The amount of students that spend less than \$23 is read from the curve as 9
9
so the probability that a student spent less than \$23 =

## Q8.a) Finding a rule relating B and N

The fourth diagram is the sequence is shown below The formula or rule that relates the number N with the
number of balls B may be found using general equation for
a straight line , since the relationship is linear.

## Ie B=m 2 N +c ( m2 = gradient, c = intercept)

so using diagrams 1 and 2

B1 =m 2 N 1 +c
B2 =m 2 N 2+c
The completed table is shown below
B2 B1 12 8
N # Wires # Balls hence m2 = = =4
N 2 N 1 21
1 12 8
2 20 12 substituting this gradient into the first equation
3 28 16 8 = 4 (1) +c
(i) 4 36 20 so c=4
(ii) 20 164 84
Therfore the equation for the number of balls B is:
Finding a rule relating W and N
B = 4N +4
The formula or rule that relates the number N with the
number of wires W may be found using general equation for
a straight line , since the relationship is linear.
so if N = 4, then B = (4 x 4) + 4 = 20
Ie W = m N + c ( m = gradient, c = intercept)
so using diagrams 1 and 2 and if N = 20, then B = (4x 20) + 4 = 84

W 1 =m N 1 +c
W 2=m N 2 +c

w 2 w1 20 12
hence m= = =8
N 2 N 1 21

12 = 8 (1) +c
so c=4

## Therfore the equation for the number of wires W is:

W = 8N +4

so if N = 4, then W = (8 x 4) + 4 = 36
