(a) State the modal class

(b) Draw an O give curve and use it to estimate;

(i) Median mark.

(ii) Number of students who obtained marks between 41.5 and 55.5

(c) Calculate the mean mark.

13 Using a pair of compass, ruler and pencil only;

(a) Construct a triangle ABC such that AB= 8cm, BC= 12cm and angle BAC = 1200

(b) Inscribe a circle In the triangle ABC, measure its radius, hence determine the area of the circle.

14.(a)Copy and complete the following table of values for the curve y = x(x + 2) for − 5 ≤ x ≤ 3

(b)Using the values in (a) above, plot the graph of y = x(x + 2) for − 5 ≤ x ≤ 3

(c)Use your graph in (b) above to solve the equation

(i) x + 2x = 0

(ii) x + x − 1 = 0

15. A plane flies from town A on a bearing of 0600 for a distance of 250 km to town B. The plane then alters
its course and flies south wards a distance of 400km to town C. At C, it flies on a bearing of 2500 for a
distance of 325km to town D.

(a) Draw a sketch of the plane's path.

(b) Using a scale of 1 cm: 50km,draw the scale drawing for the plane's path, hence the distance and
bearing of town A from D.

16. (a)Allan, Ben and Chris decided to buy a car for a joint business; Allan paid of the cost; Ben paid
of the cost and Chris paid the rest: If Ben paid shs. 65,000 more than Allan. calculate the cost of the
car.
