5 In order to award a languages prize among students who study different combinations of two

languages, a teacher scales the original marks in each language examination to a mean of 70

with a standard deviation of 8. She then adds the scaled marks for each student.

The table below shows the original marks for three students, Alan, Beryl and Charles in each of

their two languages, together with the mean and standard deviation for all students in each

language.

(i) Copy the following table of scaled marks and, after performing the necessary calculations, fill

in the four blank spaces.

[5]

(ii) Hence show that the student with the highest total of original marks does not win the prize.

[2]

6 When illustrating the use of moving averages, three students F, G and H, carry out the following

calculations.

F Four-quarter moving averages on the quarterly electricity consumption of a particular

household.

G Seven-year moving averages on annual sales figures for a clothing manufacturer.

H Twelve-month moving averages on the monthly rainfall at a particular location.

(i) For each of the three students, state whether or not it is necessary to centre these moving

averages. In each case give a brief reason. [3]

(ii) For each of the three students, state what kind of variation the student is attempting to

eliminate by calculating the moving averages. [3]

Section B [64 marks]

Answer not more than four of the questions 7 to 11.

Each question in this section carries 16 marks.

7 A student, carrying out an investigation to calculate a weighted aggregate cost of living index,

obtained data on four food items, Bread, Vegetables, Meat and Dairy products, purchased by a

family. The price relatives obtained by the student for these four food items for each of the years

1995, 2000 and 2002 are shown in the table below.

(i) Explain the significance of the 100s in the column of price relatives for 1995. [2]

(ii) State what the 100 for Vegetables in 2002 implies. [1]

(iii) Calculate, correct to 2 decimal places, the price relatives for each of the four food items for

2002, taking 2000 as the base year. [4]

The student, using total expenditure in 1995 for each of the four food items, also determined

weights for Bread, Vegetables, Meat and Dairy products as 15, 8, 22 and 30 respectively.

(iv) Using your price relatives from (iii) and the weights determined by the student calculate, to

1 decimal place, a weighted aggregate cost of living index for 2002, taking 2000 as the base

year. [4]

A friend of the student was checking through the calculations and realised that the weights were

in fact based on quantities purchased rather than expenditure.

(v) Using the quantity weights with the price relatives from the original table calculate, correct

to 1 decimal place, a weighted aggregate cost of living index for 2002, taking 2000 as the

base year. [4]

(vi) Comment briefly on your answers to (iv) and (v). [1]

8 In this question answers which are probabilities should be given correct to 3 decimal

places.

The table below shows the number of boys and girls attending some extra activities offered to

pupils in two year-groups, year 4 and year 5, at a junior school.

There are, in total, 64 boys and 52 girls in year 4, and 53 boys and 60 girls in year 5.

(i) State what you can deduce from the fact that the total number of boys in the table is greater

than 117. [1]

(ii) A pupil is chosen at random from all the pupils in years 4 and 5. Find the probability that this

pupil attends the swimming club. [2]

(iii) A boy is chosen at random from the two year-groups. Find the probability that he attends the

swimming club. [2]

(iv) Two boys are chosen at random from year 4. Find the probability that both of these boys

attend football coaching. [3]

(v) Two girls are chosen at random, one from each of the two year-groups. Find the probability

that both of these girls attend dancing classes. [3]

(vi) One boy and one girl are chosen at random from year 5. Find the probability that one of

them, but not both, attends the chess club. [3]

(vii) A girl is chosen at random from those girls who attend musical instrument lessons. Find the

probability that she is in year 4. [2]

(i) State why there is no need to centre the moving averages. [1]

(ii) Calculate the value of p. [2]

(iii) Calculate the value of q. [2]

(iv) Draw, on graph paper, a graph showing the total amount spent each day. Use a scale on the

x-axis, which should be on the long side of the graph paper, of 1 cm to represent one day.

Use a scale on the y-axis, which must extend from $700 to $1500, of 2 cm to represent

$100. Plots for consecutive days should be joined with straight lines. [4]

(v) Plot the moving averages on your graph and draw a straight line to show the trend. [3]

(vi) By reading the point on your trend line for Sunday of week 4 and doing the necessary

calculations, estimate the total spent in the store on Wednesday of week 4. [2]

(vii) State two conclusions about the variation in total amount spent each day which you can

make from your graph. [2]

11 In a gambling game a players turn consists of first drawing a card from a standard pack of

52 playing cards and then throwing a fair six-sided die. The players score is then calculated as

follows:

If the card is a club, the score is zero.

If the card is a diamond, the score is the number on the die.

If the card is a heart, the score is twice the number on the die.

If the card is a spade, the score is three times the number on the die.

(i) List the possible scores that the player can obtain in a single turn. [2]

(ii) List the number of ways in which each score can be obtained. [2]

(iii) Tabulate the possible scores and their associated probabilities, leaving your probabilities as

fractions. [2]

The owner of the cards and the die offers the following prizes for each turn.

Score 0 or 6 no prize

Score 2, 3, 4 or 12 $10 prize

Any other possible score $20 prize

(iv) Calculate, correct to 1 decimal place, the players expected prize in one turn. [3]

(v) State what charge the owner should make for each turn to make this a fair game. [1]

(vi) Show that the owner could also have made it a fair game by changing the $20 prize to $40

and charging $15 for a turn. [2]

(vii) Calculate the owners expected loss if he charges $15 for a turn and changes the prizes to

those in (vi) but removes all the club cards from the pack, thus removing the possibility of

the score being zero. [4]
