2 The 3 flavours of puddings produced by a dessert shop are mango, durian and strawberry. A
mango pudding requires 5g of sugar and 36ml of water. A durian pudding requires 6g of
sugar and 38ml of water. A strawberry pudding requires 4g of sugar and 40ml of water. The
puddings are sold in pairs of the same type at \$1.60, \$2.20 and \$1.80 for mango, durian and
strawberry respectively.
On a particular day, 754g of sugar and 5972ml of water were used to make the puddings and
all the puddings made were sold except for a pair of strawberry puddings. The collection
from the sale of puddings was \$142.40. Formulate the equations required to determine the
number of each type of pudding made on that day.

6 An economist is studying how the annual economic growth of 2 countries varies with time.
The annual economic growth of a country is measured in percentage and is denoted by G
and the time in years after 1980 is denoted by t. Both G and t are taken to be continuous
variables.
