      Calculate
      1. Hellen’s taxable income in K£ p.a (2mks)
        (38000 + 14000 + 8500 + 3300) x 12 = 38,280 ksh p.a
                             20
      2. Her P.A.Y.E (5mks)
        6000 x 2 =12000
        6000 x 3 = 18000
        6000 x 4 = 24000
        6000 x 5 = 30000
        6000 x 6 = 36000
        6000 x 7 = 42000
        2280 x 8 = 18240
        Gross tax p.a = 180,240
        less relief = 12672
        P.A.Y.E  = 167,568 p.a.
        = 13,964 p.m
      3. Hellen is deducted the following items per month
        NHIF Ksh.320
        Cooperative shares Ksh.2000
        Loan repayment Ksh5000
        Determine her net salary per month (3mks)
        total ded = (13969 + 320 + 2000 + 1000)
        = ksh 21 284
        Net salary = 63800 - 21284
        = ksh 42, 516
  21. In the figure below, O is the centre of the circle. A, B, C and D are points on the circumference of the circle. A, O, X and C are points on a straight line. DE is a tangent to the circle at D. Angle BOC= 48º and angle CAD = 36º.

    1. Giving reasons or otherwise, find the value of the following angles:-
      1. Angle CBA (1mk)
        90º -> angle subtended by the diameter of the circumference
      2. Angle BDE (2mks)
        36º - alternate segment theorem
      3. Angle CED (3mks)
        180 - (36 + 36 + 61)
        180 - 133º
        = 47º angles in a traingle add upto 180º
    2. It is also given that AX = 12 cm, XC = 4 cm, DB = 14 cm and DE = 20 cm. Calculate:
      1. DX (2mks)
        DX = X
        X6 = (14 - X)
        AX.XC = BX.XB
        12 x 4 = x(N - x)
        48 = 14x - x2
        x2 - 14x + 48 = 0
        (x - 8)(x - 6) = 0
        x = 8 or x = 6 cm
      2. AE (2mks)
        AE.CE = DE2
        202 = 16(16 + a)
        400 = 256 + 169
        CE = a
        144 = 169
        a = 9 cm
  22. The position of two towns A and B on the earths surface are (36ºN, 49ºE) and (36ºN, 131ºW) respectively.
    1. Find the difference in longitude between town A and town B. (2mks)
      131 + 49
      = 180
    2. Given that the radius of the earth is 6370, calculate the distance between town A and B.
      1. In nm. (2mks)
        60 x ∝ Cos θ
        = 60 x 180 Cos 36º
        = 60 x 180 x 0.8090
        = 8737.38 pm
      2. In kilometers. (2mks)
        x 2π R Cos θ
        360
        180 x 2 x 3.142 x 6370 Cos 36º
        360
        = 16192.103 km
    3. Another town C is 840km East of town B on the same latitude as town A and B. Find the longitude of town C. (4mks)

      ∝ x 2 x 3.142 x 6370 Cos 36º
      360
      = 840 km
      ∝ = 840 x 360º
      628 x 6370 Cos 36º
      = 9.34º

      Longitude of town c
      13 1º – 9.34º
      = 121.66º

  23.                        
    1. Using a ruler and compasses only, construct triangle ABC such that AB=4cm, BC=5cm and ∠ABC = 120º. Measure AC. (4mks)
      23 adada
      AC = 7.8 ± 0.1
    2. On the diagram, construct a circle which passes through the vertices of the triangle ABC. Measure the radius of the table. (4mks)
      Radius = 4.5 ± 0.1 cm
    3. Construct a perpendicular from the centre of the circle to the line BC. Measure the length of the perpendicular. (2mks)
      length of perpendicular = 4.5 ± 0.1
  24. A metal sphere has a radius 5cm and a density of 2.4g/cm³.
    1. Calculate the mass of the ball in kg (4mks)
      f = m/v
      v = 4/3πr3
      = 4/3 x 22/7 x 53
      = 523.5987756cm3
      = fv
      = 523.5987756 x 2.4
      = 1256.637061g
      = 1.256637061 kg
    2. The ball is dropped into a cylindrical container which is partially filled with water. The ball is fully sub-merged. If the cylinder has a base radius of 8cm, calculate the change in the water level. (3mks)
      v = πr2h = 523.5987756 cm3
      h = 523.5987756

               π x 8 x 8
      h = 2.604166667
    3. The sphere is melted down to form a metal cylinder of same radius. Calculate the height of the cylinder formed. (3mks)
      v = πr2h = 523.5987756 cm3
      h = 523.5987756

             π x 25
      h = 6.667 cm
