Problem 3: a) 2p b) 2p [not a part of MaC Curriculum 2000 but a part of MaB Syllabus 2000 ] Before making the choice between building a climbing wall or a new riding school the local government carried out a random sampling. Of 1500 selected sample only 1140 people replied. 63.8% of those who replied favored establishing and building of a riding school. Before the municipality decision-making day, a demand from the climbing club came to the local government which expressed a concern regarding the drop-off analysis of the studies. The climbing club was of the opinion that inquiry still may be interpreted in their favor. a) Do the climbing club have any right in their assertion?

Suggested solution: Answer: Yes they might. Yes they may have a right for the interpretation of the studies in the favor of building a climbing wall. This is due to the fact that, the drop-offs, i.e. those people how did not replied to the inquiry, might were in the favor of building a riding school. However as shown in the part b, still even 80% of the drop-offs were the favor of climbing wall, the result is in favor of the riding school.  b) Which one gets the majority if 80 % of those who did not replied originally vote for building of the climbing wall?

Suggested solution: Answer: The riding school is still favored by 53% drop - offs : 1500 1140 = 360 drop - offs in favor of riding school 360 0.20 = 72  drop - offs in favor of riding school 1140 0.638 727 727 + 72 = 799 799  100 = 53% 53% for riding school 1500

a)

## Provide the scale of y-axis w.r.t. the x-axis in the figure.

Only the answer is required Suggested solution: 15 y = 4 x + 13 y = 9 x2 x-intercept of the curve: 10 f ( x) = 9 x 2 2 y = 9 x = (3 x )(3 + x ) = 0 5 Therefore, the curve cuts the x-axis at: x1 = 3 0 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 x2 = +3 -5 On the other hand, the yintercept of the function -10 may be calculated by substituting x = 0 into the equation of the curve: y = 9 x 2 y (0) = 9 . y = 9 x 2 y = 2 x b) Determine with two different methods the gradient of the plotted tangent . solution: First Method: The line drawn is tangent to the curve at (-2,5) therefore it shares this point with the curve. The line also have the same gradient as the curve at this point.

Problem 10: 4p

Experiments have indicated that approximately an acre* farming land per person is needed in order to feed the world population. 1950 the population of the world was about 2.5 billions. 1980 it was increased to about 4.6 billions. If it is assumed that the population is increased exponentially the need of the farm land is also increases exponentially. The earth has about 9 billions acre agriculture land. When may we not be able to find sufficient agriculture land on the face of the earth to support world population?
* A acre corresponds to 4936 m2 or about a half hectare.

Suggested solution: We may assume exponential growth for the population of the Earth, i.e.: N = N0 at Where, N (t ) is the total population of the Earth t yeras after 1950, and N 0 = 2.5 10 9 is the population of the Earth year 1950. 1980, i.e. t = 1980 1950 = 30 yeras , the population was increased to

N = 4.6 109 . Therefore, we may calculate a the growth factor of the earths population, according to the model: [0/1] N = N 0 a t 4.6 10 9 = 2.5 10 9 a 30 1 4.6 4.6 10 9 = 2.5 10 9 a 30 a 30 = a 30 = 1.84 a = (1.84 )30 0.061 2.5

If the total farming land of the earth is L = 910 acre , and if it is assumed one acre per person is needed, then the existing farm lands of the earth may feed nine billion people N = 9109 . Hence we may find number of years t yeras after 1950, where the population of the earth is increased from N 0 = 2.5 10 9 to N = 9109 : [0/1] N = 2.5 10 9 (1.84 )30 9 10 9 = 2.5 10 9 (1.84 )30 t t t 9 9 10 9 = 2.5 10 9 (1.84 )30 (1.84 )30 = (1.84 )30 = 3.6 2.5 t t (1.84)30 = 3.6 log(1.84)30 = log(3.6) t log(1.84) = log(3.6) t = 30 log(3.6) years 30 log(1.84 ) log(3.6 ) years t = 63.02 years 1950 + 63 = 2013 year 2013 t = 30 log(1.84 ) Answer: According to the model after year 2013 the nine billion farm lands of the Earth are no longer sufficient to feed the population of the Earth!

This is due to the fact that f ( x ) is just the function g ( x ) which is displaced by a constant value upward: h( x ) = f ( x ) g ( x ) = 2 .
