## MARKING SCHEME

1. b(b-4)
b - 4
= b
2. ab(2+k)-m(2+k)
3. B:G
3:5 = 8
Boys = 3/8 x 16
= 6
4. P2 = 120 x 600 = sh720
100
P3 = 90/100 x 720
=sh648

5. P = 2(745 + 230)
=1950m
no. of post = 1900
5
= 360

6. =120 x 22 x 21 x 21
360     7
= 462cm2
As = θ/360r2
=120 x 22 x 16 x 16
360    7
= 268.19
=193.81
7. 4litres = 60km
1 litre = 60/4km
15litres = 60/4 x 15
=225km in g/cm3
8. d = M/v
d = 4000cm3 = 0.8g/cm3
5000g
9.
1. Time = 2400 - 2240
+ 0120 + 1230
Time = 3hrs 50mins
2. S = D/
S =  250  km
350/60hr
S = 250 x 6/23km/h
= 65.2km/h
10. 4(x+2) -3(x-4) = 5/12
12
4x+8-3x+125/12
12
x + 205/12
12
12x + 240 = 60
12x = 60 - 240
12x = -180
12       12
x = -15
11. 4k + 2m = 14
3k + 2m = 10
k = 4
m = 7 - 2k
= 7 - 2 x 4
= 7 - 8
= -1
12. P = πD + r
= 22/7 x 2.1 + 2.1
p = 66 + 21
= 8.7m
13.

1. v = r2h
22/7 x 3.5 x 3.5 x 2m
= 77m3
1m3 = 1000l
77m3 = x
x = 77 x 1000l
= 77000l
2. no of day = 77000
5000
= 15.4days
3. 1000l = 2008h
1l = 200
1000
77000 = 200 x 77000
1000
= 15,400
14.
1. 10.1m
2. 10.20am
- 10.00am
= 20mins
3. 10.30 - 10.20 am
