1. Relative to a fixed origin O, the vector equations of the two lines l1 and l2 are

l1 : r = 9i + α j + 4k + t ( −8i − 3j + 5k )

and

l2 : r = −16i − 3 j + 10k + s ( i − 4 j + 9k )

(ii) Find the position vector of A. [1]

(iii) Prove that the acute angle between l1 and l2 is 60o. [2]

The line l1 passes through the point B (1, -1, 9) and the line l2 passes through the

point C (-17, 1, 1).

3. A fish tank with an oval base and vertical height h is initially full of water. Water leaks out of a

small hole in the base of the tank at a rate, which, at any time t, is proportional to the depth of

the water x at that instant.

dx

(i) Show that the differential equation, in terms of x and t, can be written as = −kx

dt

where k is a positive constant. [2]

(ii) If the tank is exactly half empty in 2 hours, find the depth of water in an hour, giving the

exact answer in terms of h. [8]

4. The functions f and g are defined by

g: x a , x > −1

1 + x2

(i) State with reasons whether the composite functions fg and gf exist. If it exists, find its

rule, domain and range. [6]

(ii) Explain why the inverse function g −1 does not exist. State the maximal domain of g in

the form of an interval [ a, ∞) , where a is a constant to be determined, so that g −1

exists. For this restricted domain of g, find g −1 in a similar form, stating clearly its

domain and

range. [5]

5. A group of 8 friends sit together in a circle. Alice, Betty and Candy are three members of the

group of friends.

(i) If Alice refuses to sit beside Betty unless Candy sits on the other side of Alice as well,

how many possible seating arrangements can there be? [3]

(ii) 2 latecomers then come to join the group, and they have to sit apart from each other.

How many possible seating arrangements can there be, bearing in mind the condition

from (i)? [3]

6. Each of a random sample of 10 students are asked about the average number of minutes spent

on doing mathematics tutorials in a week (x), and their percentage score for the mathematics

final examination (y). The results are tabulated below:

(ii) Find the linear product moment correlation coefficient between y and x, and comment

on the relationship between x and y. [2]

(iii) Making use of your answer from part (i), find the equation of the regression line of x on

y. [2]

(iv) Use the appropriate regression line to estimate the percentage score of a student who

the estimate. [2]

7. With the upcoming movie “Dragonball” in 2009 by 20th Century Fox, a toy company

is beginning to manufacture a Design A soft toy and Design B soft toy based on the main

character. It was discovered that an average of 5 defective Design A soft toy and an average of

3 defective Design B soft toy are manufactured in a day.

(i) Find the probability that there are at most altogether 12 defective

toys manufactured in a day. [3]

(ii) Using a suitable approximation, find the probability that there are

exactly 350 days

out of 365 days in a year where there are at most 12 defective toys

manufactured in

a day. [4]

8. A student has requested for a testimonial to apply for a job. She estimates that there is an 80%

chance of getting the job if she receives an excellent testimonial, a 40% chance if she receives a

moderately good testimonial and a 10% chance if she receives a fair testimonial. She further

estimates that the probabilities that the testimonial will be excellent, moderate or fair are 0.7,

0.2 and 0.1 respectively.

(i) Draw a tree diagram to illustrate the information and calculate the exact probability of

the student getting the job. [2]

(ii) Given that she receives the job offer, what is the exact probability that she received an

excellent testimonial? [2]

(iii) Given that she did not receive a moderate testimonial, what is the exact probability that

she did not receive a job offer? [2]

(iv) If there are n students, who have the exact same chance of obtaining the kind of

testimonials as this student, what is the probability of at least 1 student obtaining an

excellent testimonial? Leave your answer in terms of n. [2]

the latest model of Nintendo Wii. Assuming that the time taken to sell the

product follows a normal distribution with mean µ minutes and variance 5

minutes.

(i) Given that the probability of taking less than 20 minutes to sell a Wii set is 0.55,

find µ . [4]

(ii) Find the probability that the time to sell 10 Wii sets is less than 3 hrs. [2]

[Turn over

5

(iii) On the second day, the sales representative decided to bring in another product w

that is twice as saleble as a Wii set. Find the probability that the total time taken to sell

one set of each product is not more than 30 minutes. [4]

10. An employer has commissioned an opinion polling organisation to undertake a survey of staff

responses to the proposed changes in the pension scheme. The staff are categorised as

management, professional and administrative, and it is thought that there might be considerable

differences of opinion among the categories. There are 60, 140 and 300 staff respectively in the

categories. The budget for the survey allows for a sample of 40 members of staff to be selected

for in-depth interviews.

(i) State one disadvantage of selecting a simple random sample from all the staff. [1]

(ii) Describe an alternative sampling method which would be better in this case. [3]

The opinion polling organisation needs to estimate the average salary of staff. They took a

sample of 50 people and found out that ∑ (x − 3000) = − 1360 , ∑ (x − 3000 ) = 8, 687, 200 .

2

(iii) Find the unbiased estimates of the population mean and variance. Leave your answers to

2 decimal places. [3]

(iv) Find the probability that the mean salary of 60 people taken at random is more than

$3,000. [3]

11. A stretch of the SJE Expressway near a town centre has a speed limit of 70 km/h. Before the

introduction of speed cameras, the vehicles using this Expressway had a mean speed of 81

km/h.

Following the introduction of speed cameras on this Expressway, ten drivers were fined for

exceeding the speed limit. Their recorded speeds, in km/h, were:

93.7, 79.9, 86.0, 102.8, 84.9, 95.3, 89.6, 88.2, 93.0, 106.9

(a) John, a representative of a motoring organization, stated that he has examined the data

and found significant evidence that the mean speed of vehicles has increased since the

introduction of the speed cameras. He therefore claims that the road would be much

safer if the cameras were removed.

(i) Assuming that the recorded speeds may be regarded as a random sample from a

normal distribution, show that there is evidence at the 1% level of significance, that

the mean speed exceeds 81 km/h. [4]

(b) (i) To investigate whether the mean speed of vehicles has increased since the introduction

of speed cameras, the speeds of a random sample of 120 vehicles using the

expressway are recorded and are found to have a mean of 82.1 km/h and a standard

deviation of 6.9 km/h. Using this second sample, and a 5% significance level,

examine whether there is evidence that the mean speed of vehicles now exceeds 81

[Turn over

6

km/h. [5]

(ii) State giving a reason, whether it is necessary to assume a normal distribution for the

test to be valid. [1]
