COMMONWEALTH SECONDARY SCHOOL PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION 2009 SECONDARY FOUR EXPRESS / FIVE NORMAL ACADEMIC MATHEMATICS Paper 1 Date : 27 August 2009 Candidates answer on the Question Paper. 4016/01 Time : 2 hours 0800 – 1000

READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST Write your name, class and index number on all the work you hand in. Write in dark blue or black pen. You may use a soft pencil for any diagrams or graphs Do not use staples, paper clips, highlighters, glue or correction fluid. Answer all questions. If working is needed for any question it must be shown with the answer. Omission of essential working will result in loss of marks. Calculators should be used where appropriate. If the degree of accuracy is not specified in the question, and if the answer is not exact, give the answer to three significant figures. Give answers in degrees to one decimal place. For π , use either your calculator value or 3.142, unless the question requires the answer in terms of π . At the end of the examination, fasten all your work securely together. The number of marks is given in the brackets [ ] at the end of each question or part question. The total number of marks for this paper is 80.

18 The diagram shows the speed time graph of a cyclist over a period of T seconds. The cyclist sees a stretch of wet road ahead and slows down uniformly from 6m/s to 3m/s in 20 seconds. He then progresses at constant speed for 30 seconds, passing the stretch of wet road, before gaining speed uniformly to 6m/s at T seconds.
