    1. Find the 20th term of the sequence. (2mks)
      a = 3
      d = 6
      nth = a + (n - 1)d
      ∴20th = 3 + (20 - 1)6
      =117
    2. Determine the value of n. (2mks)
      sn = n/2 {2a + (n - 1)d}
      7500 = n/2 {2 x 3 + (n - 1) 6}
      15000 = 6n2
      ∴n2 = 2500
      n = ± 50
      = 50 terms
  2. A quadratic curve passes through the points (-2, 0) and (1, 0). Find the equation of the curve in the form y = ax2+bx+c, where a, b and c are constants. (2mks)
    2 adad
    ∴(x + 2) = 0
    and (x - 1) = 0
    let y = (x + 2) (x - 1)
    => y = x2 + x - 2
  3. Make h the subject of the formula. (2mks)
    q= 1+rh
         1-ht
    q - qht = 1 + rh

    actual perimeter = 50.0 x 6
    = 300 cm
    maximum per = 50.05 x 6
     = 300.3

    2. Hence use the expansion in (a) above to approximate the value of (39.6)5 correct to 3 significant figures. (2mks)
      Let 39.6 = 40 - 0.4
      => 39.65 = (40 - 0.4)5
      comparing:

      4x = 40
      ; x = 10
      -y/2 = 0.4
      ∴ y = 0.8
      substituting;
      1024(105) - 640(104) x 0.8 + 160(103)(0.8)2 + ......
      = 102400000 - 5120000 + 102400

    let ∝ = 40 + Ѳ
    (40 + Ѳ) x 2π x 6370 = 8008

    second 9120 x 15/100 = 1368
    third 9120 x 20/100 = 1824
    last 4580 x 25/100 = 1145
    gross tax = 5305
    income tax = 5305 - 1056
    = sh. 4249
  15. Three types of beverages are mixed in the ration 1:3:5 respectively. Type A costs sh 26, type B costs sh 28 and type C sh 32, per packet. Find the cost of the mixture per packet. (3mks)

  7. For a C B C inservice training course for teachers, at least four (4) but not more that nine(9) teachers are to be chosen per school. The ratio of the number of male teachers to the number of female teachers must be less than 2:1 and there must be more males than females. If x and y represent the number of male teachers and female teachers respectively:
    1. Write down in their simplest form the inequalities that x and y must satisfy. (4mks)
      1. x + y ≥ 4 (at least 4 teachers)
      2. x + y ≤ 9 (not more than 9 teachers)
      3. x:y < 2:1
        x < 2y
      4. x>y (more males than females)
    2. On the gird provided below, represent the inequalities on the graph. (4mks)

    3. Use the graph to determine the composition of the training group of:
      1. The largest size. (1mk)
        integral values (5,4)
        5 + 4 = 9 teachers
      2. The smallest size. (1mk)
        integral values (3,2)
        3 + 2 = 5 teachers
  8. The equation of a curve is given by y=5x- ½ x2.

    1. On the grid provided below, draw the curve of y=5x- ½ x2 for 0≤x≤6. (3mks)
       x  0  1  2  3  4  5 6
       y  0  4.5  8  10.5  12  12.5 12
    2. By integration, find the area bounded by the curve, the line x=6 and the x-axis. (3mks)

    3. On the same grid, draw the line y=2x. (1mk)
      Line drawn (must be straight)
    4. Determine the area bounded by the curve and the line y=2x. (3mks)
      A = 54 - Area of triangle
      = 54 - 1/2 x 6 x 12
      = 54 - 36
      = 18 sq.units
