On the average, the washroom water usage of a student is 15litres (l) a day. The school
gardener uses 2 litres per meter squared (l/m2) for the daily gardening purposes.

As part of the planning of yourschool, your principal needs to calculate the index
number for water consumption by the students in year 2024 based on the year 2014.
Assume that the population of the students increases by 3% per year, and the usage of
water per student increases by 5% per year.

PART 2/ BAHAGIAN 2:
Your school would like you to do a feasibility study on rainwater harvesting system. You are
to use information such as the dimension of your school buildings,the water consumption of
your school and any other related information to decide which type of water tank is the best

Based on the daily water consumption in Part 1 question 2(a), determine the suitable
size of the water tank, in meter cubed (m3), in order to supply water for 5 consecutive
days when there is no rain.

Given that the construction cost of the water tank is RM70 per m2. By using two
different methods, determine the minimum construction cost of a water tank with the

REFLECTION/ REFLEKSI
According to the newspaper cutting above (NATION The Star, Wednesday 7 May 2014), a
person uses an average of 212 l of pipe water daily. The government would like to reduce that
to 180 litres daily. Represent your response or feelings on water conservation creatively
through the usage of words, poems, symbols, illustrations, drawing or even in a song.
