First of all, I like to thank to God with his bless and

at the same time He helped me to finish this Additional
Mathematic project work till to the end.
Besides that, I also wants to thanks to my beloved
parents because give support and money to complete
this project.Apart from that,I also want to thank to my
beloved friends because teach and give information to
me about this Additional Mathematic project work
2010. This project is about the concrete gate of an art
gallery. I had my rough and hardtime to finish this folio,
but with all their support and guide, I can make it well.
Last but not least, a lot of thank you to my
Additional Mathematic teacher, Mr Ting Lian Boon on
helping me along the way to complete this Additional
Mathematic project work.
In addiction, I really hope that this folio may give
me a lot of benefits and the most importance is it would
help the other students to gain more knowledge and
calculation about additional mathematic subject.
Additional Mathematic is a tough subject which need a
lot of practices and excercises then we can score this
subject easily “like eating a peanut”.


The concrete structure is support by two vertical pillars at both ends. 2 . that is the highest point on the parabolic shape. A concrete structure is built at the upper part of the gate and the words ‘ART GALLERY’ is written on it. The top of the concrete structure is flat whereas at the bottom is parabolic in shape. is 0. The distance between two pillars is 4 metres and the height of the pillar is 5 metres. The shortest distance from point A of the concrete structure to point B. The concrete structure is 1 metre. The diagram below shows the gate of an art gallery.5 metres.

You are given four different shapes of concrete structures as shown in tha diagrams below. a. All the structures have the same thickness of 40 cm and are symmertrical. Structure 1 Structure 2 Structure 3 Structure 4 7 .

As the president of Art Club. 8 . Which shape would you choose? Explain and elaborate on your reasons for choosing the shape.00. you are given the opportunity to decide on the shape of the gate to be constructed. I. II. Given that the cost to construct 1 cubic metre of concrete is RM 840. determine which structure will cost the minimum to construct.
