    1. The altitude of the pyramid made from the frustrum. (2 marks)
      L.S.F= =
      24x=18x+262.8
      6x=262.8
      X=43.8
      Hence H=43.8+14.6
      =58.4cm
    2. The surface area of the frustrum. (5 marks)
      18x7.5=135
      24x10=240
      0.5x2x14.69693846x42=617.2714
      0.5x2x14.94782593x17.5=261.5869538
      ATOTAL=135+240+617.27+261.59
      =1,253.858354cm2
    3. The volume of the frustrum. (3 marks)
      V=VB.P-VS.P
      =( X 240 X 58.4)+( X 135X 43.93)
      =4672-1976.85
      =2695.15 cm3
  8. The distance S meters from a fixed point O, covered by a particle after t seconds B given by the equation S = t3 – 6t2 + 9t + 5
    1. Calculate the gradient of the curve at t = 0.5 seconds (3 marks)

      At t =0.5seconds.
      Gradient =
      =3.75m

      when

      (t-1) (t-3) = 0

      t= 1 or 3 seconds
      when t=1b, S=1-6+9+5
      =9m
      When t = 3s, S=
      =5m.

      At t = 1b,

      max turning point
      At t =
      At (3,5) Min. turning point.

    2. Determine the values of S at the turning points of the curve (3 marks)
    3. Sketch the curve in the space provided. (4 marks)
