## Warning: There are more than one versions of the test.

Instructions Test period Tools Part I 90 minutes for Part I and Part II as a whole. We recommend that you use at the most 45 minutes to work with Part I. You must not use the calculator before you have handed in Part I. Use a separate sheet for part I. Formula sheet and ruler. For most items a single answer is not enough. It is also expected that you write down what you do that you explain/motivate your reasoning that you draw any necessary illustrations. After every item is given the maximum mark your solution can receive. (2/3) means that the item can give 2 g-points (Pass level) and 3 vg-points (Pass with distinction level). Items marked with (Problems 1f, 5, 9, 10 and 11) give you a possibility to show MVG-quality (Pass with special distinction quality) This means that you use generalised methods, models and reasoning, that you analyse your results and account for a clear line of thought in a correct mathematical language. Try all of the problems. It can be relatively easy, even towards the end of the test, to receive some points for partial solutions. A positive evaluation can be given even for unfinished solutions.

5. An architect wants to design a rectangular room so that its width is 5 m less than its length, and its perimeter is greater than 53 m . If each dimension of the room must be a whole number of meters, what are the smallest possible dimensions, in meters, of the room? [2/2/] Suggested solution: L m : Length of the room. W m : Width of the room. W = L5 m. 2 L + 2W > 53 m Substitute the value of the width of the room from W = L 5 m into 2 L + 2W > 53 m : 2 L + 2(L 5) > 53 m 2 L + 2 L 10 > 53 m 4 L 10 > 53 m 4 L > 53 + 10 m 63 m 4 L > 63 m L > 4 Lsmallest = 16 m Wsmallest = Lsmallest 5 m = 16 5 m = 11 m Wsmallest = 11 m Answer: Lsmallest = 16 m and Wsmallest = 11 m

9. The market supply and demand of a certain type of computer memory chip are related to the price of the chip according to these equations: Supply: P = 3 x + 124 Demand: P + 5 x = 156 where P is the price in thousand dollars, and x is the number of chips in thousands. Use an algebraic (analytical) method to find the value of x and P for which the supply price equals the demand price. Confirm your results by an independent method for example by creating either a graph or a table. [2/2/]

P = 156 5 x

P = 3x + 124

Suggested solutions: Supply: P = 3 x + 124 P = 156 5 x Demand: P + 5 x = 156 P = 156 5 x 3 x + 124 = 156 5 x 5 x + 3 x = 156 124 8 x = 32 32 x= =4 Answer: x = 4 thousands 8 Answer: P = \$136 000 P = 3 x + 124 P = 3 4 + 124 = 12 + 124 = 136 Answer: For x = 4000 chips the supply price is equal to the demand price: P = \$136 000 .

10. If 7 392 is multiplied out, what is the units (ones) digit of the product? Suggested solutions:

[2/2/]

n 7n
Units Digit: UD

0 70 = 1

1 71 = 7
k =1 UD : 7

2 7 2 = 49
k =2 UD : 9

3 7 3 = 343

4 7 4 = 2401
k =0 UD : 1

.. 5 6 5 6 7 = ..7 7 = ..9 ..
k =1 D:7 k =2 UD : 9

392

7 392
k =0 UD : 1

k =0 UD : 1

k =3 UD : 3

..

It may be recognized that the pattern is repeated every four steps. As shown above, we may n k = m , i.e. k decides what the divide the exponent with 4, the remainder of the division 4 4 units digit of the exponent is. As it is clear from the pattern in the table above: if k = 0 , the units digit is 1. if k = 1 , the units digit is 7, if k = 2 , the units digit is 9, if k = 3 , the units digit is 3, 392 = 98 k = 0 UD = 1 4 Answer: If 7 392 is multiplied out, the units (ones) digit of the product is 1.

11. At a high school, 278 students are enrolled in physics, 186 are enrolled in music of which 64 are enrolled in both music and physics. How many percent of students who are enrolled in either physics or music, are enrolled in both? [2/2/] Physics and Suggested solutions: Music We may draw a Venn graph using N = 64 Music N = 186 Circle P : Physics: N P = 278 are enrolled in Physics. Circle M : Music: N m = 186 are enrolled in Physics Music. N PI M = 64 : Enrolled in both music and physics N = 278 Total number of students enrolled in either Physics or Music are: N PU M = N P + N M N PI M = 278 + 186 64 = 400 Percents of students who are enrolled in either physics or music who are enrolled in both: N 64 = 0.16 = 16% N PI M % = PI M = N PUM 400 Answer: 16% of students who are enrolled in either Physics or Music are enrolled in both.
