3 A gardener charges a $40 fixed fee for each visit plus $12
per hour of work
C = 12t + $40
B. when t = 4
C = 12 4 + 40

Same gradient parallel so no intersection
The answer is C
8 2x 2y = 4 y = x 2
2y = 2x + 4 m = 1
y = x 2
m = 1
Actually same line therefore infinite number of solutions.
The answer is D
9 a If two lines with different gradients go through the
origin, then the solution to the pair of simultaneous
equations defining these lines would be (0, 0).
b If two lines have the same gradient but different yintercept,
then the pair of simultaneous equations defining such lines
will have no solution (as they are parallel lines).
c If both lines are defined by the equation y = mx + c and have
the same value of c but a different value of m, then the
solution to such pairs of simultaneous equation will be (0, c).

b Subtract 1 from the previous term. The next three terms
are 3, 4, 5.
c Multiply the previous term by 4. The next three terms are

e Add three to the magnitude of the previous term and then
change the sign. The next three terms are 17, 20, 23.
f The difference between the terms increases by 1 for each
successive pair. The next three terms are 27, 35, 44.
g Add the previous two terms. The next three terms are 29,
47, 76.
h Add 3b a to the previous term. The next three terms are
2a + 7b, 3a + 10b, 4a + 13b.
i Many possible answers. Subtract 1 for the first two
differences, then add 1 for the next two differences, then
repeat is one possibility. The next three terms are 0, 1, 0.
j Append 1 to the decimal expansion of the previous term.

2006: p

(hundreds)
so expected number of cats (to the nearest whole number)
are: 26 and 25.
b Continuing the iterative process shows that the sequence
converges to

0. If we consider to the nearest whole number, all cats will
be gone in 4 years time, or by 2009.

21 (1) The road is 10 metres wide.
Let t
1
= first attempt at crossing the road.
t
1
= 10 2 = 5 m
Let t
2
= second attempt at crossing the road.
t
2
= 5 +
1
(10 )
2
t
= 5 + 2.5
= 7.5 m
Let t
3
= third attempt at crossing the road.
t
3
= 7.5 +
2
(10 )
2
t
= 7.5 + 1.25
= 8.75 m
Continuing this sequence,
t
4
= 8.75 +
(10 8.75)
2
= 9.375 m
t
5
= 9.375 +
(10 9.375)
2
= 9.6875 m
t
6
= 9.6875 +
(10 9.6875)
2
= 9.843 75 m
Mathematically, the student will never make it past the
other side of the road. After each attempt, the distance
remaining is halved and this result is the extra distance
walked at the next attempt. Thus the distance travelled
across the road approaches, but never reaches,
10 metres.
(2) As shown in part 1, the extra distance travelled at each
attempt is equal to half the remaining distance from the
previous attempt. Given that there will always be an
amount remaining to travel, only half this amount can be
achieved on the next attempt, regardless of the width of
the road.

Value 60 000 69 000 79 350
69 000
60 000
= 1.15 and
79 350
69 000
= 1.15 so the three terms form a geometric
sequence with common ratio r = 1.15 and a = 60 000.
i 1985: t
4

3
r

The value in 1985 would be $91 253.
ii 1995: t

5
= 60 000 (1.15)
5

The value in 1995 would be $120 681.
b 2010: t

8
= 60 000 (1.15)

= 3.059 60 000
So it increases by a factor of 3.059.

F = The fixed cost.
C = kn + F

The fixed cost is $2000.

100k = 2500
k = 25
C = 25n + 2000
c C = 25 120 + 2000

4 Let C = total cost.
n = number of loaves made.
F = Fixed cost of bread maker.
C = kn + F

5 [1] 1215 = 100 k + 5 F [3]
[3] [2] 916 = 4F
F = 229
The breadmaker costs $229.
b Substitute F = 229 into [1]
243 = 20 k + 229
14 = 20 k
k =

20

The cost of flour and other ingredients is 70 cents per
loaf.
c C = 0.7n + 229
C = 0.7 500 + 229

The cost is $579.
d Revenue: R = 2.5n

So 128 loaves need to be sold for a profit.

Let p = n

q = n is odd
q p If n is not odd then n

is not odd.
If n is not odd, it is even (or 0) and can be represented by
2x, where x is any integer.
Let n = 2x
Then n
2
= (2x)
2
= 4x
2
A number multiplied by an even number must be even, so
n
2
must be even.
As n is not odd and n
2
= 4x
2
is even, it is not odd.

Let p = ax = bx (x 0)

Assume a b. Multiply both sides by x.
Therefore ax bx

Let p = n
2

q = n > 2
q p
Assume n < 2
2 x < 2
(2 x)
2
< 4
c If n
2
is divisible by 2, then n is divisible by 2.
Let p = n
2
is divisible by 2
q = n is divisible by 2
q p
Assume n is not divisible by 2, therefore it is odd.
n = 2x + 1
n
2
= (2x + 1)
2
An odd number squared = an odd number.
n
2
is also not divisible by 2.
12 The product of a negative number and a positive number is
negative.
Let a = a negative number
b = a positive number
Assume that a b is positive
The magnitude of a b = ab
= a b
Let c = a = a since a is negative
c b = c b
c = a
c b = a b
= a b
c = a
Contradiction, so a b is negative.
A positive multiplied by a negative is negative.
13 Prove, by contradiction that there is no smallest positive
real number
Assume that a is the smallest positive real number.
Let x =
2
a
Since a > 0, then x > 0 and x < a (property of division).
This contradicts the assumption that a is the smallest
positive number.
14 Assume 2 is rational, so that 2 =
a
b
, where a and b
are integers that have no common factors.
Therefore 2 =
2
2
,
a
b
or a
2
= 2b
2
.
Therefore a
2
is a multiple of 2 and therefore a is a multiple
of 2 (from a
2
= a a)
Since it is a multiple of 2, write a = 2x.
Therefore a
2
= 4x
2
= 2b
2
.
Therefore b
2
= 2x
2
and is thus a multiple of 2.
Therefore both a and b are multiples of 2 and have a
common factor of 2.
This contradicts our initial statement, so it must be false.
15 Assume n is the largest possible integer.
Let x = n + 1.
Therefore x > n, which contradicts our initial statement.

a + b < 180

If a + b = 180, then PQ is

The statement is clearly true in

1 + 3 + 5 +

RHS = (1 + 1 1)

In this case, (1 + x)

For n = 2 and x = 1,
LHS = (1 + 1)
2
= 2
2

RHS = (1 + 1 2)
= 1 + 2
= 3
In this case, (1 + x)
n
> (1 + xn)
So we have seen that
(1 + x)
n

Is the statement true for the next
term n + 1?
That is,
is (1 + x)
n + 1
(1 + x(n + 1))?
(1 + x)
n
(1 + x)
1
(1 + xn + x)
If it is true that (1 + x)

then it is only necessary to prove

positive
So, (1 + x)

Pythagoras theorem can be

For n = 1, 1(1 + 1) = 1 2 = 2
(even)
For n = 2, 2(2 + 1) = 2 3 = 6
(even)
Assume: n(n + 1) is even and look
for the next term in the series,
n + 1.
(n + 1)[(n + 1) + 1]
= (n + 1)(n + 2)
= n(n + 1) + 2(n + 1)

So, n(n + 1) is an even number for

f (a + b + c)

is always divisible

a, b and c are three consecutive
integers.
Let a = n
b = n + 1
c = n + 2
(a + b + c)
3
= (n + n + 1 + n + 2)
3
= (3n + 3)
3
= [3(n + 1)]
3
Since 3 is a factor of this
expression, it is always divisible
by 3.
Test for the next term, n + 3
(a + b + c)
3
= (n + 1 + n + 2
+ n + 3)
3
= (3n + 6)
3
= [3(n + 2)]
3
Again, since 3 is a factor of this

From the quadratic equation,

formula can be proved, but not by
mathematical induction.
h Prove that a polygon of n sides
can be composed of (n 2)
triangles.
The smallest polygon consists of
3 sides and is a triangle.
When n = 3, n 2 = 3 2
= 1
That is, 1 triangle is formed.
When n = 4, n 2 = 4 2
= 2
2 triangles are formed
The formula is true in both cases.
Consider the next term (n + 1).
The number of triangles formed is
(n + 1 2) = n 1.
A triangle with 3 sides forms 1
triangle, while the next sized
polygon with 4 sides forms 2
triangles (one more). We have
seen that a polygon with n sides
forms n 2 triangles. So, the next
biggest polygon would form one
more triangle. The value of n 1 is
indeed one more than n 2, so the
statement is true for all polygons.

loop (a simple results)
b a is the radius of each petal. b is
the number of petals if b is odd.
(If b is even, then there will be 2b
petals)

the size of the resulting cardioid
in all directions.
d The graph enters a spiral about
the centre from the chosen a

e The loop passes through the
horizontal axis at the chosen a

f The value of a is the length of one
