# Mathematics (0580) - Question Paper 11 (November 2011)

## Question # 1 The diagram shows the map of part of an orienteering course.
Sanji runs from the start, S, to the point A.

Write SA as a column vector.

## Solution

As Sanji runs 3 units in the left (-ve) direction and 4 units in the upward (+ve) direction. So the column vector is

 -3 4

## Question # 2

When Ali takes a penalty, the probability that he will score a goal is 4/5.

Ali takes 30 penalties.

Find how many times he is expected to score a goal.

## Solution

 No. of times, Ali is expected to goal  = 4 x  30  =  24 5

24 times he is expected to score a goal.

## Question # 3

The ratio of Anne’s height : Ben’s height is 7 : 9.
Anne’s height is 1.4 m.

Find Ben’s height.

## Solution

 Anne's height = 7 Ben's height 9
 1.4 = 7 Ben's height 9
 Ben's height  = 9 x  1.4  =  1.8 7

Ben's height  =  1.8 m

## Question # 4

The distance between the centres of two villages is 8 km.
A map on which they are shown has a scale of 1 : 50 000.

Calculate the distance between the centres of the two villages on the map.

## Solution

According to the map scale, 1 centimetre = 500 metre = 50000 centimetres
and we know that 8 kilometre = 800000 centimetres

 Distance between two villages on map = Scale distance on map Actual distance between two villages Actual distance
 Distance between two villages on map = 1 800000 50000
 Distance between two villages on map  = 1 x  800000  =  16 50000

Distance between two villages on map  =  16 centimetres

## Question # 5 The bar chart shows the favourite colours of students in a class.

(a) How many students are in the class?

(b) Write down the modal colour.

## Solution

(a) From bar chart, frequency against each colour represents the no. of students. By adding these frequencies, we have, 4 + 2 + 6 + 8 + 5 = 25
Hence the no. of students in the class = 25

(b) The modal colour is green, having the highest frequency.

## Question # 6

Use your calculator to find

 Ö 45 x 5.75 3.1 + 1.5

## Solution

 Ö 45 x 5.75 3.1 + 1.5
 =  Ö 258.75 4.6
 =  Ö  56.25
 =   7.5

## Question # 7

(a) Calculate 60% of 200.

(b) Write 0.36 as a fraction.
Give your answer in its lowest terms.

## Solution

(a)

 60%  of  200
 = 60 x  200 100
 =  120

(b)

 0.36
 = 36 100
 = 18 50
 = 9 25

## Question # 8

A circle has a radius of 50 cm.
(a) Calculate the area of the circle in cm2.

(b) Write your answer to part (a) in m2.

## Solution

(a)

Radius of the circle = 50 cm

 Area of the circle   =  p r2
 Area of the circle   =  3.142 x 502   =  7855
 Area of the circle   =  7855 cm2

(b)

As 1 m = 100 cm

 1 cm  = 1 m 100
 Area of the circle  = 7855 x ( 1 )2  m2 100
 Area of the circle  = 7855 m2 10000
 Area of the circle  =  0.7855 m2

## Question # 9 The graph shows the temperature in Paris from 6 am to 6 pm one day.

(a) What was the temperature at 9 am?

(b) Between which two times was the temperature decreasing?

(c) Work out the difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures shown.

## Solution

(a)

The temperature at 9 am is 15 oC

(b)

Between 2 pm and 6pm, the temperature was decreasing.

(c)

From graph,

 the maximum temperature = 27.5 oC
 the minimum temperature = 12.5 oC

Difference between maximum and minimum temperatures

 = 27.5 oC - 12.5 oC
 = 15 oC

## Question # 10

(a) Write down the mathematical name of a quadrilateral that has exactly two lines of symmetry.

(b) Write down the mathematical name of a triangle with exactly one line of symmetry.

(c) Write down the order of rotational symmetry of a regular pentagon.

## Solution

(a)

Rectangle or rhombus

(b)

Isosceles (triangle)

(c)

## Question # 11

Without using your calculator, work out

 1 ( 2 + 1 ) 2 3 4

Show all your working clearly and give your answer as a fraction.

## Solution

 1 ( 2 + 1 ) 2 3 4
 = 1 ( 8 + 3 ) 2 12
 = 1 ( 8 + 3 ) 2 12
 = 1 x 11 2 12
 = 11 24
 =  0.4583

## Question # 12 The diagram shows the graph of y = (x + 1)2 for −4 ≤ x ≤ 2.

(a) On the same grid, draw the line y = 3.

(b) Use your graph to find the solutions of (x + 1)2 = 3.

Give each solution correct to 1 decimal place.

## Question # 13 The front of a house is in the shape of a hexagon with two right angles.
The other four angles are all the same size.

Calculate the size of one of these angles.

## Question # 14

(a) Expand and simplify.

 2(3x – 2) + 3(x – 2)

(b) Expand.

 x(2x2 – 3)

## Solution

(a)

 2(3x – 2) + 3(x – 2)
 = 6x – 4 + 3x – 6
 = 9x – 10

(b)

 x(2x2 – 3)
 = 2x3 – 3x

## Question # 15 The scatter diagram shows the marks obtained in a Mathematics test and the marks obtained in an English test by 15 students.

(a) Describe the correlation.

(b) The mean for the Mathematics test is 47.3 .
The mean for the English test is 30.3 .

Plot the mean point (47.3, 30.3) on the scatter diagram above.

(c) (i) Draw the line of best fit on the diagram above.

(ii) One student missed the English test.
She received 45 marks in the Mathematics test.

Use your line to estimate the mark she might have gained in the English test.

## Question # 16

(a) In the diagram, AB is parallel to DE.
Angle ABC = 110°.
