    G6 ÷ G4 = G2 (1 mark)

    (K3)2 = K6 (1 mark)

    Expand and simplify 3(m+4) - 2(m+1) (1 mark)

    10-5m

    Factorise n2 - 7n (2 marks)

    n(n-7)




    Question 5. Estimate 892 ÷ 18.9 (2 marks)
    Round to 1 significant figure

    900 ÷ 20 = 45




    Question 6. A teacher is picked at random. 3/5 chance they are female. 36 are males. (3 marks)
    How many teachers are there altogether?

    2/5 of teachers are male. 36 are male.

    2/5 of total = 36

Size:  5.2 KB

    2.5 m x 6 m = 15 m2
    2.5 m x 6 m = 15cm2


    10 m - (2.5 m - 2.5 m) = 5 m
    6 m - 2 m = 4 m

    5 m x 4 m = 20 m2

    15 m2 + 15 m2 + 20 m2 = 50 m2

    5 m2 per litre, 50 m2 ÷ 5 m2 = 10 litres

    2.5 litres per tin, 3 tins, 3 x 2.5 = 7.5 litres.

    Not enough, 7.5 litres is less than 10 litres.

    Answer is 'not enough' with evidence.

    Area of square = 10cm x 10cm = 100 cm²
    Area of circle = π5² = 25π cm²

    Area of shaded = Area of square - Area of circle = 100 cm² - 25π cm² = 100 - 25π cm²

    Question 19.

    x = -0.4 or x = 4.4
    x = -1.1 or x = 5.1 (3 marks)
    x = -1.7 or x = 4.7 (3 marks)




    Question 20. What is the angle? (5 marks)
    Angles in a triangle add up to 180°, base angles in an isosceles are equal.
    180° - 48° - 48° = 84°

    Angle at centre is twice angle at circumference.
    84° ÷ 2 = 42°

    Angles in a triangle add up to 180°, base angles in an isosceles are equal.
    (180° - 42°) ÷ 2 = 69°

    Answer is 69°.




    Question 21. What is the chance of the match being cancelled when it does not rain? (5 marks)

    0.8 x 0.05

    Answer is 0.04.




    Question 22. Solve X² = 4(X-3)² (3 marks)

    X² = 4[(X - 3)(X - 3)]

    X² = 4[X² - 3X - 3X+ 9]

    X² = 4[X² - 6X + 9]

    X² = 4X² - 24X + 36

    0 = 4X² - X² - 24X + 36

    0 = 3X² - 24X + 36

    0 = 3[X² - 8x + 12]

    0 = 3[(X - 6)(X - 2)]

    X = 6 or X = 2




    Question 23. (6 marks)
    a + b

    -a + 3b

    ¾(a+b)

    Point S is on both lines and is the point at which the lines intersect.
