Answer as many questions as possible. 1 mark for correct numerical answer and 1 mark for satisfactory explanation as to how you got that answer. 1 extra mark for easy of writing - use brackets, and set work out neatly! Thankyou.

1. Find the sum and product of all the terms in the sequence: 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 ...

2. Given that: a = 3^243; b = 27^81, what is the value of (a^2)/(b^2) ?

3. Find the nth term of the sequence: 1, 1/2, 1/6, 1/24, 1/120

4. 12!/n! = 11880. What is the value of n?

5. What is the value of: (1/4) + (1/4)^2 + (1/4)^3 + (1/4)^4 ... ?

6. With how many zeroes does the number 3003! end?

7. What is the sum of the digits of (2^202)(5^204)?

8. Find x, if: 9^(2x) = 2*9^x + 3

9. Convert 1847 (base 9) into base 4

10. If y/(x-z) = (x+y)/z = x/y, when x, y and z are distinct positive integers, then what is the ratio of x to y?

11. Find the area of the largest equilateral triangle that can be inscribed in a rectangle with sides 10 and 11.

12. Find the largest value of k, such that 3^(11) is the sum of k consecutive positive integers.
