## READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST

1. Write your name, class and register number in the spaces provided.

## 2. Answer all questions in the writing paper provided.

3. If working is needed for any question, it must be neatly and clearly shown in the space
below that question. Omission of essential working will result in loss of marks.

4. The number of marks is given in brackets [ ] at the end of each question or part question.

5. You should not spend too much time on any one question.

## 6. The total mark for this paper is 100

You are expected to use a scientific calculator to evaluate explicit numerical expressions.
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  , use either your calculator value or 3.142.
