# Question Part I Cakes come in a variety of forms and flavours and are amongfavourite desserts served during special

occasions such asbirthday parties, Hari Raya, weddings and etc. Cakes aretreasured not only because of their wonderful taste but also inthe art of cake baking and cake decorating. Find out howmathematics is used in cake baking and cake decorating andwrite about your findings. Answer: Geometry ± To determine suitable dimensions for the cake, to assist in designing and decorating cakes that comes in many attractive shapes and designs, to estimate volume of cake to be produced Calculus (differentiation) ± To determine minimum or maximum amount of ingredients for cake-baking, to estimate min. or max.amount of cream needed for decorating, to estimate min. or max. size of cake produced.

Progressions ± To determine total weight/volume of multi-storey cakes with proportional dimensions, to estimate total ingredients needed for cake-baking, to estimate total amount of cream for decoration.

1 ± Rectangle-shaped base (cuboid) 19000 = base area x height base area = length x width = 2375 By trial and improvement. 4750 = 95 x 50 (length = 95. width = 47.5 (length = 50.68 cm³ 3 ± Pentagon-shaped base .5)(1) + 2375 = 3935 cm³ 2 ± Triangle-shaped base 19000 = base area x height base area = 2375 x length x width = 2375 length x width = 4750 By trial and improvement.5. width = 50) Slant length of triangle = ¥(95² + 25²)= 98.23 Therefore.23 x 8)(1) + 2375 = 4346. 2375 = 50 x 47. height = 8) Therefore. volume of cream = 2(Area of left/right side surface)(Height of cream) + 2(Area of front/back side surface)(Height of cream) + Vol. of top surface = (50 x 8)(1) + 2(98. amount of cream = Area of rectangular front side surface(Height of cream) + 2(Area of slant rectangular left/right side surface)(Height of cream) + Vol. of top surface = 2(8 x 50)(1) + 2(8 x 47.

Give reasons for youranswers. Use at least two different methods including Calculus. and the formula for amount (volume) of cream to be used for the round cake (as in Q3/a). since it requires only 3135 cm³ of cream to be used. (3) into (2): V = (3.142)r² + ( ) ) (3) V = (3.142)r² + 38000r-1 .142)r²h (1) V = (3.19000 = base area x height base area = 2375 = area of 5 similar isosceles triangles in a pentagon therefore: 2375 = 5(length x width) 475 = length x width By trial and improvement. Part III Find the dimension of a 5 kg round cake that requires the minimum amount of fresh cream todecorate.142)r² + 2(3. amount of cream = 5(area of one rectangular side surface)(height of cream) + vol. Answer: Method 1: Differentiation Use two equations for this method: the formula for volume of cake (as in Q2/a). width = 19) Therefore.142)rh (2) From (1): h = Sub. of top surface = 5(8 x 19) + 2375 = 3135 cm³ (c)Based on the values that you have found which shape requires the leastamount of fresh cream to be used? Answer: Pentagon-shaped cake. 475 = 25 x 19 (length = 25.State whether you would choose to bake a cake of such dimensions.142)r² + 2(3.142)r( V = (3. 19000 = (3.
