PAPER 2

1. Amirah has an allocation of RM200 to buy x workbooks and y reference books. The total
number of books is not less than 20. The number of workbooks is at most twice the number of
the references. The price of a workbook is RM10 and that of a reference is RM5.

a ) Write down three inequalities, other than x 0 and y 0, which satisfy all the above
constraints.
( 3 marks)
b ) Hence, using a scale of 2cm to 5 books on the x-axis and 2cm to 5 books on the y-axis,
construct and shade the region R that satisfies all the above constraints. ( 4 marks )

c ) If Amirah buys 15 reference books, find the maximum amount of money that is left.

## 2. A university wants to organise a course for x medical undergraduates and y dentistry

undergraduates. The method in which the number of medical undergraduates and dentistry
undergraduates are chosen are as follows.

## I : The total number of participants is at least 30.

II : The number of medical undergraduates is not more than three times the number of dentistry
III : The maximum allocation for the course is RM6 000 with RM100 for a medical

a) Write down three inequalities, other than x 0 and y 0, which satisfy all the above
constraints.
( 3 marks )

b) Hence, by using a scale of 2cm to 10 participants on both axes, construct and shade the region
R that satisfies all the above constraints. ( 3 marks )

## c) Using your graph from (b), find

( i) The maximum and minimum number of dentistry undergraduates , if the number of
medical undergraduates that participate in the course is 20.
(ii) The minimum expenditure to run the course in this case. ( 4 marks )

3. A tuition centre offers two different subjects, science, S, and mathematics, M, for Form 4
students. The number of students for S is x and for M is y. The intake of the students is based on
the following constraints.

## I : The total number of students is not more than 90.

II : The number of students for subject S is at most twice the number of students for subject
M.
III : The number of students for subject M must exceed the number of students for subject S
by at most 10

a) Write down three inequalities, other than x 0 and y 0, which satisfy all the above
conditions.
( 3 marks)

b) Hence, by using a scale of 2 cm to represent 10 students on both axes, construct and shade the
region R that satisfies all the above conditions. ( 3 marks )

## c) Using the graph from ( b ), find ( 4 marks )

( i ) the range of the number of students for subject M if the number of students for subjects S
is 20
(ii) the maximum total fees per month that can be collected if the fees per month for subject S
and M are RM12 and RM10 respectively.

4 A bakery shop produces two types of bread, L and M. The production of the bread involves two
processes, mixing the ingredients and baking the breads. Table 1 shows the time taken to make

## Type of bread Time taken ( minutes )

Mixing the ingredients Baking the breads
L 30 40
M 30 30

Table 1

The shop produces x breads of type L and y breads of type M per day. The production of breads
per day are based on the following constraints:

I : The maximum total time used for mixing ingredients for both breads is not more than 540
minutes.
II : The total time for baking both breads is at least 480 minutes.
III : The ratio of the number of breads for type L to the number of breads for type M is not less
than 1 : 2

a ) Write down three inequalities, other than x 0 and y 0, which satisfy all the above
constraints. ( 3 marks )

b) Using a scale of 2 cm to represent 2 breads on both axes, construct and shade the region R
that satisfies all the above constraints. ( 3 marks )

## c) By using your graph from 4(b), find

( i ) the maximum number of bread L if 10 breads of type M breads are produced per day.

(ii ) the minimum total profit per day if the profit from one bread of type L is RM2.00 and

5. A factory produced x toys of model A and y toys of model B. The profit from the sales of a
number of model A is RM 15 per unit and a number of model B is RM 12 per unit.
The production of the models per day is based on the following conditions:-

## I : The total number of models produced is not more than 500.

II : The number of model A produced is at most three times the number of model B.
III : The minimum total profit for model A and model B is RM4200.

a) Write down three inequalities, other than x 0 and y 0, which satisfy all the above
conditions.
( 3 marks)

b) Hence, by using a scale of 2 cm to represent 50 models on both axes, construct and shade the
region R that satisfies all the above conditions. ( 3 marks )

## c) Based on ypur graph, find ( 4 marks )

( i ) the minimum number of model B if the number of model A produced on a particular
day is 100.

## (ii) the maximum total profit per day

From the graph, the minimum value occurs at ( 5, 15 ) 1
Hence, minimum expenditure = 10 (5) + 5 (15)
= RM125
Therefore, the maximum amount of money left = RM200 RM125

From the graph, the minimum number of dentistry undergraduates is 10 and the 1
maximum number of dentistry undergraduates is 50.

(ii) For the minumum expenditure, there are 20 medical undergraduates and 10 dentistry
Thus , minimum expenditure = 100 (20) + 80(10) 1
