Question 24
A
0.81
B
0.081
C
0.0081
D
8.0001
Explanation
(0.09)2 = 0.09 \(\times\) 0.09

= 0.0081

= 0.008100 to 4 significant figures

Please, start counting first from the non-zero digits i.e. 8

Question 25
A
\( \frac{2}{(x + 1)^2} \)
B
\( \frac{2}{(x + 1)(x + 2} \)
C
\( \frac{2}{(x + 1)(x + 2} \)
D
\( \frac{2}{(x + 1)(x + 3} \)
Explanation
\( [1 (x^2 + 3x + 2)] + [1 (x^2 + 5x + 6)] \)

= \( 1 (x^2 + 3x + 2) + [1 (x^2 +5x + 6)]\)

= \( [1 ((x^2 + x) + (2x + 2) )] + [1 ((x^2 + 3x) + (2x + 6) )] \)

= [1 (x(x + 2) + 2(x +1))] + [1 (x(x + 3) +2(x + 3) )]

= [1 (x + 1)(x + 2)] + [1 ((x + 3) + (x + 2))]

=((x + 3) + (x + 1)) (x + 1)(x + 2)(x + 3)

Using the L.C.M

=((x + x + 3 + 1)) (x + 1)(x + 2)(x + 3)

=(2x+4)/(x+1)(x+2)(x+3) =2(x+2)/(x+1)(x+2)(x+3)

= \( \frac{2 }{(x + 1)(x + 3)} \)

Question 26
A

\( \frac{2}{15} \)

B

\( \frac{3}{24} \)

C

\( \frac{3}{21} \)

D

\( \frac{3}{28} \)

Explanation

One bag with 3 blue and 5 red

Pr (H) = 3/8Pr (r) 5/8

Another bag with 2 blue and 4 red (note one ball is drawn from each bag)

i.e. prob.=8 - 1 = 7

prob. (2 ball both are blue=pr (1st blue and 2nd blue)

prob. 2 balls both blue = 3/8 \(\times\) 2/7

= \( \frac{3}{28} \)

Question 28
A

5

B

3

C

6

D

1

Explanation

132x = 708

\( 1 \times x^2 + 3 \times x^1 + 2 \times x^0 \)

\( 7 \times 8^1 + 0 \times 8^0 \)

\( x^2 + 3x + 2 - 56 = 0 \)

\( x^2 + 3x - 54 = 0 \)

x(x + 9)-6(x + 9) = 0

(x + 9)(x - 6) = 0

Either (x + 9) = 0 or (x - 6) = 0

x = - 9 or +6

The positive values for x = 6

The base number for 132x = 1326

Question 29
A

N410,000

B

N365, 217

C

N157, 250

D

N257,000

Explanation

Cost Price:

Selling price = 100 : (100 + 15)

= 100 : 115

Cost Price

= 100 115 of selling price (i.e N420,000)

= 100 15 \(\times\) N420,000

= N365,217.4

Cost Price = N365, 217

Question 30
A

\( \frac{3}{2} \)

B

\( \frac{2}{3} \)

C

\( \frac{1}{3} \)

D

\( -\frac{3}{2} \)

Explanation

\( [ 1 64^{(x + 2)}]= [4^{(x - 3)} 16^x ] \)

\( 64^{-(x + 2)} = [4^{(x - 3)}] [16^x] \)

breakdown 4,16,64 into a small index no

\( 2^{-6(x + 2)} = 2^{2(x - 3)} 2^{4(x)} \)

\( 2^{-6x- 12} = 2^{2x - 4x - 6} \)

\( 2^{-6x -12} = 2^{-2x - 6} \)

- 6x - 12 = - 2x - 6

Collect the like term

-6x + 2x = -6 + 12

-4x =6

x = \( \frac{6}{4} \)

x = \( \frac{-3}{2} \)


Correct option: D
