2. 102 365 478 001
2.
1. 7 532
2. Total value = 5 x 100 = 500
3. 7056
 2 7056 2 3528 2 1764 2 882 3 441 3 147 7 49 7 7 1
7056 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x7 x 7
= 24 x 32 x 72

Largest container = 2 x 2 x 3
= 12 litres

6. 1 478 019
(1+7+0+9) – (4+8+1)
17 – 13 =4
Therefore 1 478 019 is not divisible by 11

7. NUMERATOR
-4 + 84 + 10
=90
DENOMINATOR
6 X 3 = 18
QUOTIENT
90/18=5

8. 1/3 of 7/12 ÷ 1/12
1/3 X 7/12= 7/36
7/36 ÷ 1/12 = 7/36 × 12/1= 7/3
2 1/3

9. Let x=0.2333333333
10x = 2.333333...
100x = 23.333333...
100x – 10x = 23.333333...– 2.333333...
90x = 21
x= 21/90 = 7/30

10. √0.792= √79.2×10-2
= 8.899 × 1/10
=0.8899

11.

= √625×256
25×8×50
=√16
=4

12.
1. School fees = 1/4
Remainder = 4/4 - 1/4= 3/4
Electricity and water = 1/4 of 3/4= 1/4 × 3/4= 3/16
Fees + electricity and water = 1/+ 3/16= 7/16
Remainder = 16/1- 7/16= 9/16
Transport = 1/9 of 9/16 = 1/9 × 9/16= 1/16
Fees + electricity and water+transport
= 1/4 + 3/16 + 1/16= 8/16=1/2
Remaining = 1/2=8400
Total January salary = 2/1 ×8400=shs.16 800

2. School fees
=1/4 ×16800
=shs. 4200

3. Transport
=1/16 ×16800
=shs. 1050

4. Water and electricity
=3/16 ×16800
=shs. 3150
13.
1. Number of cartons
=30 816/24
=1284 cartons

2. Total mass of the empty cartons
1284 cartons×2kg
2568kg

3. Total mass of books in one carton
mass of books in one carton=12kg-2 kg
=10kg per carton

4. Total mass of all the exercise books
Total mass of all the exercise books=1284 10kg
=12 840 kg

5. Mass of one exercise book
mass of one book =10kg ÷24
= 0.42kg
