The greatest possible length is : 2 x 2 x 7 = 28cm
2. 3/5 ÷ 2/3 - 1/6 x 7/12 of (1/2 + 4/5)
= 3/5 ÷ 2/3 - 1/6 X 7/12 of 13/10
3/5 ÷ 2/3 - 1/6 X 7/12 x 13/10
=  3/5 x 3/2 - 1/6 X 7/12 x 13/10
= 9/10 - 91/720
= 648 - 91  557
720           720
3. Length of outer rectangle = 50 + 1+ 1= 52m
Breath of outer rectangle = 40 + 1 + 1 = 42cm
Area of lawn togther with path = 52 x 42 = 2184
Area of lawn = 50 x 40 = 2000
Area of patrh alone = 2184 - 2000 = 184m2
4. Length of major arc + minor arc = circumference
2πr = 154 + 110
2 x 22/7 xr = 264
r = 264 x 7/22 x 1/2 = 42cm
If the angle is x , then:
x/360 x 2πr = arc length
x/360 x 2 x 22/7 x 42 = 110
x = 110 x 7 x 360
2 x 22 x 42
= x = 150
5. Log1020 + Log1040 - Log108 = Log10 (20 x 40/8)

Selling    150    x 360 x 120
100           810
= 80
7.

coeff matrix M= (4 -5 3 -2)
det M = (4 x -2) - (3x - 5)
= (-8) - (-15) = 7
8.  Original total marks = 41 x 30 = 1230
New total marks = 42.5 x 30 = 1270
∴ marks added = 1275 - 1230
= 45
Karimi got 4/9 x 45 = 20
Nduku got 3/9 x 45 = 15
Hence karimi got 5 more
9.   b²   = c
4a
1/3 + k = 1
(-10)²  = 1/3 + k
4 x 25
100/100 = 1/3 + k

11. Tan 60° = 5/x
x = 50 = 2.88675
Tan 60°
Sin 60° = 5/L
L = 5/Sin 60° = 5.7735
Area = (5.7735 x 10) + (1/2 x 10 x 2.88675) x 2
= 57.735 + 28.8675
= 86.6025
= 86.60
12. Total time taken for journey:
1000/60 + 21/3 = 19 hrs
1130 + 1900
= 3030 - 2400
= 0630
∴ Tuesday at 6:30am
13. 4/x - 1 =    3 - x
x + 3
4 - x  3 - x
x          x + 3
Cross multiply:
(x + 3)(4 - x) = x (3 - x)
4x - x2 + 12 - 3x = 3x - x2
x + 12 = 3x
12 = 2x
∴ x = 6
14. Distance moved in 1 revolution = πd
Distance covered in 1 minute = 200πd
= 200 x 22/7 x 70cm
Distance moved in 1 hour = 200 x 22/7 x        70 x 60
100 x 100
hence speed = 26.4km/hr
15.

∴ |P| = √((-3)² + (-1)² + (2)²)
=√(9 + 1 + 4)
= √14
= 3.74
