reasons, which is the graph of f and that of f ' . [2]

exactly 32π cm3, find the diameter of the rim of the cup, given that the radius of the

base is 1 cm. [3]

3 A farmer raises chickens in a farm. Taking into account various conditions, such as

sale of poultry, deaths etc. that affect the population of chickens in his farm, the

number of chickens at the end of n months is modelled by un , where

= un 0.875un −1 + 50 .

Express u1 , u2 and u3 in terms of u0 .

Show that = un 0.875n (u0 − 400) + 400 and deduce the value of un when n becomes

very large. [5]

(ii) Using the standard series expansion for ln (1 + x ) and Maclaurin’s series for y,

find the series expansion of ln (1 + tan x ) , in ascending powers of x up to and

including the term in x3. [2]

(b) Sketch on a single, clearly labelled diagram, the loci of w and z defined by

z= z − 5 and iw + 1 + i = 2. [3]

(i) State the minimum value of z − w . [1]

6 Suppose that a chemical mixture contains two substances whose masses are x kg and

y kg, and whose combined mass is 1 kg. At any time t, the rate at which x is

increasing is proportional to the product of the two masses at that time. Obtain a

differential equation relating x and t. [1]

Show that the general solution of the differential equation may be expressed in the

Cx

form ln = kt , where C and k are positive constants. [4]

Show that x → 1 as t → ∞ . [1]

7 The mass of sugar sold in bags is normally distributed with mean µ kg and variance

σ2 kg2. It is known that 30% of the bags of sugar have masses which differ from µ kg

by at least c kg. Find the probability that a randomly chosen bag of sugar has a mass

which differs from µ kg by less than 2c kg. [5]

8 Ponds are home to a huge variety of microbes. When pond water is examined under a

microscope, the average concentration of microbes is 3 per ml. If there were at least k

microbes in 95% of all 1-ml samples of pond water taken, find the value of k. [2]

Find the probability that a random sample of 3 ml of pond water contains at most 3

microbes. [2]

Ten samples each of 3 ml of pond water are collected for a particular research study.

(i) Find the probability that exactly two out of the ten samples will each contain at

most 3 microbes. [2]

(ii) Using a suitable approximation, find the probability that the ten samples will

contain more than 83 microbes. [3]

9 The heart rate (x) and diastolic blood pressure (y), both in suitable units, were

measured for each of ten hospital patients after being given a certain drug.

Unfortunately, the nurse who was in charge of recording the measurements did not

label the data sets, and the results, hence labelled “Data Set A” and “Data Set B”, are

given in the table below.

Data Set A 51 75 54 58 63 78 49 70 64 68

Data Set B 88 70 58 91 82 71 90 77 85 76

(i) With the aid of a suitable diagram, comment on the correlation between the 2

data sets, pointing out any irregularities, if applicable. [3]

(ii) A doctor, on closer look, discovered that not all data points are reliable and that

the value of the linear product moment correlation coefficient is only

approximately -0.4. Suggest which pair of data points the doctor should ignore

so as to obtain a better value of the linear product moment correlation

coefficient, and calculate the new linear product moment correlation

coefficient. [3]

(iii) With the pair of data points dropped in part (ii), the estimated least squares

=

regression line of y on x is given as y 128.5 − 0.74 x .

(a) State what data set B represents. [1]

(b) Estimate the heart rate when the diastolic blood pressure is 80, correct to

the nearest whole number. [2]

(iv) Give a reason why it might be unwise to use either of the regression lines to

establish diastolic blood pressure when the heart rate is 90. [1]

graduates from the 4 faculties were as follows:

42.1% 21.9% 8.6% 27.4%

The management office invited the graduates to participate in a survey on the amount

of time they spent at the central library during the month of their final year

examination.

(a) Describe how a stratified sample of 50 graduates may be taken to represent the

4 faculties. Write down one advantage and one disadvantage of this method of

sampling. [4]

(b) From a survey of the 50 graduates, x represents the number of hours the

graduates spent at the central library. The summarised data are as follows:

∑ x = 1564 ∑ ( x − 30)2 =

786

(i) Calculate the unbiased estimates of the population mean and variance. [3]

(ii) Estimate the probability that a random sample of 50 graduates spent an

average of at least 32 hours at the central library. [2]

11 The mass of a randomly chosen shitake mushroom has a normal distribution with

mean 5.02g and standard deviation 0.83g, while the mass of a randomly chosen

abalone mushroom has a normal distribution with mean 7.12g and standard deviation

1.05g.

(i) The probability that a randomly chosen shitake mushroom has a mass of more

than w g is 0.8. Find w. [2]

(ii) Shitake mushrooms are sold in packets of six. A customer bought eight abalone

mushrooms and a packet of shitake mushrooms. Find the probability that twice

the mass of the packet of shitake mushrooms is more than that of the eight

abalone mushrooms. [4]

(iii) A random sample of eighty abalone mushrooms is taken. Find the probability

that their mean mass is less than 7g. [2]

coloured cards which are indistinguishable except for their colour. There are 6 red, 4

blue and 2 yellow cards.

(a) Find the number of ways in which

(i) any 3 cards are selected without replacement; [3]

(ii) only 11 cards are arranged in a line. [3]

(b) The class decides that the game is played by picking 4 cards without

replacement and the total points are added from the 4 cards with each coloured

card assigned a different score as follows:

(i) obtains 4 points; [3]

(ii) has exactly 2 blue cards given that the total score is 4. [2]

13 A footwear company wishes to check out the average length of a toddler’s feet. Eight

children are selected randomly, and their left feet measured in centimetres. The

measurements are:

9.5 8.9 8.6 10.4 8.7 10.2 8.9 9.6

These measurements are used to test, at 5 % significance level, the hypothesis that the

mean foot-length of toddlers is 10 cm.

(a) Explain what is meant by the phrase ‘a 5% significance level’ in this context. [1]

(b) State, giving your reasons, whether a normal test (z-test) or a t-test should be

used, and carry out the test. [6]

(c) State an assumption made for the test in (b) to be valid. [1]
