    Cost
    [3/8 x 600] + [5/8 x 280]
    225 + 175
    = 400
    120/100 x 400

    y = 3x2 - 4x + 5
    dy/dx = 6x - 4
    (1, 4)
    dy/dx = (6 x 1) - 4
    = 2
    2 x gN = -1
    gH = -1/2
    y - 4 = -1
     x - 1    2
    y = -1/2x + 1/2 + 4

    Volume = [3.2 x 2.5 x 2] x 3/4
    = 16 x 3/4 = 12m3
    volume = 12 x 1000
    =12000L
    Time = 12000
                 250
    = 48 minutes
  6. Make N the subject of the formula 6(2 marks)
    t x (3N - p) = 5p - H x (3N - p)
                         3N - p
    multiplying both sides by (3N - p)
    3Nt - tp = 5P - N
    3Nt + N = 5p + tp
    N(3t + 1) = 5p + tp
    N = 5p + tp
           3t + 1

    8 addada
    Determine the length of PA. (3 marks)
    [15.6 + x]x = [x + 1.2 + 9.6][x + 1.2]
    15.6x + x2 = [x + 10.8][x + 1.2]
    15.6x + x2 = x2 + 12x + 12.96
    x = 12.96
           3.6
    = 3.6 cm
  9. Without using logarithms table or calculator, solve for x in;
    log 5 – 2 + log(2x + 10) = log (x - 4) (3 marks)
    log 5  + log(2x + 10) - log(x  4) = 2
    log 5 (2x + 10)= 2
              x - 4
    102 = 5(2x + 10)
                 x - 4
    x = 5
  10. In an arithmetic progression, the 20th term is 92 and the sum of the first 20 terms is 890. Calculate;
    1. The first term (2 marks)
      a + 19d = 92
      20/2 {2a + 19d} = 890
      a + 19d = 92
      2a + 19d = 89
      -a = 3
      a = -3
    2. The common difference (1 mark)
      a + 19d = 92
      d = 92 + 3
               19
      d = 5
  11. Solve for θ in the equation sin (3θ + 120º) = 11 sfsfs for 0 ≤ θ ≤ 180º. (3 marks)
    3θ + 120 = sin-1 √3/2 = 60º (B1 for 60º)
    3θ + 120 = 60º, 120º, 420º, 480º, 780º (m1 for first four)
    θ = -20º, 0º, 100º, 120º, 220º
    ∴ θ = 0º, 100º, 120º (A1 for all 3)
  12.                
    1. Expand and simplify the expression 12 ssfsffup to the third term. (2 marks)

      1024x5 - 640x4y + 160x3y2
    2. Hence use the expansion in (a) above to approximate the value of (39.6)5 (2 marks)
      39.6 = (40 - 0.4)
      ∴ 4x = 40  &  y/2 = 0.4
      x = 10            y = 0.8
      (1024
       × 105) - 640 × 104 × 0.8 + 160 × 103 × 0.82
      = 97,382, 400

    c α k + 1/n
    c = k  + m/n 
    k $ m constant
    1860 = k + m/100
    1060 = k + m/180
    186000 = 100k + m
    190800 = 180k + m
    -4800 = - 80k
    k = 60

    m = 186000 - 100 x 60
    =180 000
    c = 60 + 180000
                      n
    c = 60 + 180,000
                     200
    = 960

    v = 5t - t2 + 4
  15. Determine the turning points for the curve y = 5x – 8x2 + x3. (4 marks)
    dy/dx = 5 - 16x + 3x2
    3x2 - 16x + 5 = 0
    (3x - 1) (x - 5) = 0
    x = 1/3 & x = 5
    (for both)
    when x = 1/3
    y = (5
     × 1/3) - 8 × (1/3) + (1/3)

    Calculate the
    1. Height of the triangular faces (2 marks)
      k = √52 - 2.52
      = 4.330 cm
    2. Length of AC (1 mark)
      = √52 + 52
      = 7.071 cm
    3. Angle between VA and ABCD (2 marks)

  7. A triangular plot ABC is such that AB = 36m, BC = 40cm and AC = 42m
    1. Calculate
      1. Area of the plot in square metres (3 marks)
        23 asaas
      2. Acute angle between the edges AB and BC (2 marks)
        1/2 x 36 x 40 sin B = 662.05
        sin B = 0.9195
        B = sin-1 0.9195
        = 66.85º
    2. A circular fence passes through vertices A, B and C. A water tap is to be installed inside the plot such that the tap is equidistant from each of the vertices A, B and C. Calculate
      1. The distance of the tap from vertex A (2 marks)
        23 b auyyghdada
        2R   =      42     
                 sin 66.85º
        R = 22.84m
      2. The area between the circular fence and the triangular plot (3 marks)
        πr2 - 662.05
        22/7 x 22.842 = 1639.52
        A = 1639.52 - 662.05
        A = 977.47m2

    2. Use your graph to solve the following;
      1. x3+4x2-x-6=0 (2 marks)
        y = x3 + 4x2 - x - 6
        0 = x3 + 4x2 - x - 6
        y = 0
        x = -3.8, x = -1.3 & 1.1
      2. 3x3+12x2-15x-21=0 (3 marks)
        y = x3 + 4x2 - x - 6
        0 = x3 + 4x2 - 5x - 7
        y = 4x + 1
        x = -4.7, -1, 1.6
