SOLUTION:

1. x² + (x+1)² = 5² (Pythagoras' Theorem)

x² + x² + 2x + 1 = 25

-25 => x²+ x² + 2x - 24 = 0

2x² + 2x - 24 = 0

x² + x - 12 = 0

(x - 3)(x + 4) = 0

(x + 4) = 0 or (x - 3) = 0

x = -4 or x = 3

x = 3;

Area = 1/2 x 3 x 4 = 6cm²

2. These are quadratic simultaneous equations.

let the numbers be x and y.

x+y=9

x2 + y2 = 41

From the first equation, y = (9-x)

Now substitute this in the second equation.

x2 + (9-x)2 = 41

x2 + 81 - 18x + x2 = 41

2x2 - 16x + 81 = 41

2x2 - 16x + 40 = 0

x2 - 8x + 20 = 0

(x - 5)(x -4) =0

(x - 5) = 0 or (x -4) =0

x = 5 or x = 4

Substitute in the first equation, y = 5 or 4

The numbers are 5 and 4.

3. When the ball hits the ground, h = 0;

-16t² + 64t + 80 = 0

Divide the equation by -16

t² - 4t - 5 = 0
(t - 5)(t + 1) = 0

t = 5 or t = -1

The time cannot be negative; so, the time = 5 seconds.

4. Let x/y = the fraction

x-2
/y-2 = ¼
4x -8 = y - 2

y = 4x -6 (Equation 1)

x+2
/ y+2= ½
2x + 8 = y + 4 (Equation 2)

Substitute equation 1 in equation 2:

2x + 8 = (4x - 6) + 4

10 = 2x

x=5

y = 4(5) - 6

y = 14

Therefore the fraction is 5/14.

5. Let x = capacity of the larger shovel in m³/hr

y = capacity of smaller shovel in m³/hr

40x + 35y = 20000

x = 500 - 0.875y (Equation 1)

70x + 90y = 40000 (Equation 2)

(Substitute equation 1 to equation 2)

700(500 - 0.875y) + 90y = 40000

35000 - 61.25y + 90y = 40000

y = 173.9 m³/hr

x = 500 - 0.875 ( 173.9)

x = 347.8 m³/hr

7. t1 + t2 = tTotal
s/5 + s/2 = 7/4

0.7s = 1.75

s = 2.5 miles

8. t1 = t2

231/V-13 = 308/V

231V = 308V - 4004

V = 52 kph

9. t = ten's digit of the number

u = unit's digit of the number

Number = 10t + u
t = u - 3 (Equation 1)
10t + u / t + u = 4 + (3 / t + u)
10t + u - 3 /t + u = 4

10t + u - 3 = 4t + 4u

6t -3 = 3u (Equation 2)
SUBSTITUTE EQ. 1 TO EQ. 2
6( u - 3 ) - 3 = 3u
6u - 18 - 3 = 3u
3u = 21
u=7
t = 7 -3
t= 4
Number = 10(4) + 7
Number = 47

heading in order for its course to be 30° ? What will be the plane's ground speed if it flies in this course?

5. A man wants to know the height of the pole. He took sights at the top of the pole from A to B, which are 70 feet apart, at the same

8. For interior angles A, B, and C of an oblique triangle ABC, prove that tan A + tan B + tan C = tan A tan B tan C

9. How many solution does the equation tanx + secx = 2cosx, have the interval of [0 , 2π]?

10. If sin A = , A in quadrant 2, sinB = , B in quadrant 1. Find cos(A-B).

SOLUTION:
1. First observation: Using Tangent

tangent(30) = 650/y

y = 1125.83 ft

Second observation: Using Tangent

tangent(65) = 650/x

x = 303.10 ft

1125.83 - 303.10 = 822.73

822.73/25 = 32.91 ft/s

2. sinA = 1−sin²A

sinA = cos²A

sin²A = cos4A

1−cos²A = cos4A

1 = cos4A + cos²A

1³ = (cos4A+cos²A)³= by formula (a+b)³

1 = cos12A+3cos10A+3cos8A+cos6A

Transverse 1 onto the other side we get the condition as given as in the question.

a=1, b=3, c=3, d=1

hence b + c/a + b

3 + 3/1 + 1 = 6/2 = 3

3. 2sin²A - sinA = 1

sin²A - 0.5sinA = 0.5

By completing square:

(sinA-0.25)² = 0.5+(0.25)²

(sinA-0.25)² = 0.5625

sinA-0.25 = ±0.75

sinA = -0.75 + 0.25

A = sin-1 (-0.5)

A = -30 or

A = 360 - 30 = 330

4.
By sine law:

50/sinβ = 300/sin60
β = 8.3°
180 – β – 60 = 111.7°

By sine law:
V/sin 111.7 = 50/sin 8.3
V = (sin111.7 / sin 8.3)(50)

V = 321.8 mph

5. tan 50 = h / x
x = (EQUATION 1)

tan 50 = h / x
x = 70 --- (EQUATION 2)

Equate EQ. 1 to EQ. 2

h/tan50 = (h/tan35) – 70
0.8390h = 1.42815h -70
h = 118.84 ft

7. by extended sine Law

where R is the circumscribing radius

so we have sin A : sin B : sin C = a/2r : b/2r : c/ = a : b : c = 4:6:7

we say that a = 4k, b = 6k, c = 7k

but since we have

cos A = (b² + c²- a²)/2bc = 23/28


cos B =(b² + c²- a²)/2ac = 29/56
cos C = (b² + c²- a²)/2ab = 1/16

cos A : cos B : cos C = 23/28 : 29/56 : 1/16

cos A : cos B : cos C = 92: 58: 7

8. A + B + C = 180
A + B = 180 – C

Tan(A+B) = tan(180-C)

tanA+ tanB = -tanC + tanA tanB tanC


tanA + tanB + tanC = tanA tanB tanC

9. Tan x + sec x = 2 cos x

sin x +1 = 2cos²x
a +1 = 2(1-a²)
2a² + a -1 = 0
(2a -1)(a+1) = 0
a = 1/2, -1
Sin x = 1/2, -1
But cos x =/= 0
Sin x = 1/2

So we have 2 solutions for x in the said interval

10. Sin A = 4/5


A = arc sin (4/5 )
A= 53.13

since A is in QII:
180 - 53.13 = 129.87
A= 129.87

Sin B = 7/25
B = Arc sin (7/25)
B= 16.26

cos(A-B)
cos(126.87-16.26)
cos(110.61)
= - 0.352

= -352/1000
= - 44/125

CE = 2.5 units

2. bh/2 = 77.76
Therefore, bh = 155.52

Pythagorean theorem,
b² + h² = (18)²
b² + (155.52/b)² = 324
b4 - 324b² + 24186.4704 = 0
Let B = b²;
b² - 324b + 24186.4704 = 0
B = 207.36 & 116.64
Therefore, b=14.4 & 10.8

Difference = 14.4 - 10.8 = 3.6

4. d = √(18² + 24²) = 30
x² = 18² + (24 – x)²
x² = 324 + 576 – 48x +x²

x² = (18.75)² = 15² + y²
y = 11.25

cosA = 8/19

A = 65.1°

CONSIDER ΔDEA

AΔDEA = ½(100)(xsin65.1)(1/sin(90))

AΔADE = 3/5 AΔABC

BY HERON’S FORMULA:
9. A = πR²

A = 36π cm²

A border = A remaining
A remaining = ½A = ½(36π)

10. The area of triangle BOC is 15 and is given by (½)BO × OC × sin(BOC)


The area of triangle AOD is given by (½)AO × OD × sin(AOD)

Note that angle BOC and AOD are equal.

By the theorem of the intersecting chords we have: AO × OC = BO × OD


hence their product is equal to 4 as follows
Which gives: AO × OD = 4 × (BO × OC)
Hence the area of triangle AOD is 4 times the area of triangle BOC and is equal to 60.

9. A vertical summit parabolic curve has a vertical offset of 375m from the curve to the grade tangent at STA 10+050. The curve has a
slope of +4% and -2% grades intersecting at the PI. The offset distance if the curve at the PI is equal to 1.5 meter. If the stationing of the
PC is at 10+000. Compute the horizontal distance of the vertical curve turning point from the point of intersection of the grades.

10. On a railroad a -0.8% grade meters a +0.4% grade station 2+700 whose elevation of 300m. The maximum allowable change in grade
per station having a length of 20m is 0.15. Compute the length of curve.
