(b) A store is promoting a new mobile phone under two plans. Plan A and Plan B. The plans are advertised as shown in the table below.

Deposit Monthly installment Number of months to repay Tax on ALL payments

Plan A \$400 \$65 12 0%

Plan B \$600 \$80

6 5%

(i) Calculate the TOTAL cost of a phone under Plan A.

m SOLUTION:

Data: Table showing two mobile phone plans as advertised by a store.

.co Required to calculate: The total cost of a phone under Plan A s Calculation: th Total cost under Plan A

= The deposit + (Monthly installments ? No. of months to repay) + Tax

a = \$400 + (\$65?12) + \$0 m = \$(400 + 780) s = \$1180 as (ii) Determine which of the two plans, A or B, is the better deal. Justify your

sp SOLUTION: .fa Required to find: The better deal of the two plans

Solution: Total cost under Plan B

w=The deposit + (Monthly installments ? No. of months to repay) + Tax w= \$600 + (\$80? 6) + 5 (\$600 + (\$80? 6))

100

w = \$(600 + 480) + 5 (\$600 + \$480) 100 = 1.05? \$(600 + 480)

= \$1134

If the better deal is supposed to mean the plan that has a lesser cost, then Plan B is the better deal as there is a savings of \$1180 - \$1134 = \$46 .

(c) John's monthly electricity bill is based on the number of kWh of electricity that he consumes for that month. He is charged \$5.10 per kWh of electricity consumed. For the month of March 2016, two meter readings are displayed in the table below.

Beginning 01 March Ending 31 March

Meter Readings (kWh) 0 3 0 1 1 0 3 3 0 7

(i) Calculate the TOTAL amount that John pays for electricity consumption for the month of March 2016.

m SOLUTION: o Data: Table showing John's electricity meter readings, in kWh, at the .c beginning and end of March 2016. John is charged \$5.10 per kWh for

electricity used.

s Required to calculate: The total amount John pays for electricity for th March 2016 a Calculation:

Number of kWh used

m = End reading on 31 March - Beginning reading on 01 March s= 0 3 3 0 7 s0 3 0 11 a 296

sp The cost at \$5.10 per kWh = 296?\$5.10 = \$1509.60 .fa \If John pays the full amount that is required, then he would pay

\$1 509.60.

w (ii) For the next month, April 2016, John pays \$2 351.10 for electricity wwconsumption. Determine his meter reading at the end of April 2016.

SOLUTION: Data: John pays \$2 351.10 for electricity in April 2016.

Required to calculate: John's meter reading at the end of April 2016 Calculation: For the month of April John pays \$2 351.10. At \$5.10 per kWh, the number of kWh used in April = \$2 351.10

\$5.10 = 461kWh

Hence, the meter reading at the end of April should be the reading at the end of March + 461

=03307 + 4 61

2. (a) Factorise the following expressions completely. (i) 6y2 -18xy

om SOLUTION: .c Required to factorise: 6y2 -18xy

Solution:

s 6y2 -18xy = 6y ? y - 6y ?3x th = 6y( y -3x)

a (ii) 4m2 -1 m SOLUTION: s Required to factorise: 4m2 -1 s Solution: a 4m2 -1= (2m)2 -(1)2 p This is now in the form of the difference of two squares. s So, 4m2 -1= (2m -1)(2m +1)

.fa (iii) 2t2 -3t -2 wSOLUTION:

Required to factorise: 2t2 - 3t - 2

wSolution: w 2t2 - 3t - 2 = (2t +1)(t - 2)

?2t2 - 4t + t - 2? We may even expand to confirm our result

Solution:

5p + 2 - 3p -1

= 20 p - 9 p + 8 + 3 12

m = 11p +11 12

.co = 11( p+1) 12

ths (c) A formula is given as d = 4h . 5

a (i) Determine the value of d when h = 29 . Give your answer correct to 3

significant figures.

sm SOLUTION: s Data: d = 4h and h = 29

a 5 p Required to calculate: d

s Calculation: .fa When h = 29

d= 5

ww= 116 5

w = 23.2

(using the calculator)

= 4.816

= 4.82 (correct to 3 significant figures)

(ii) Make h the subject of the formula.

SOLUTION: Required to make: h the subject of the formula Solution:

d = 4h 5

Squaring both sides to remove the hindrance of the root sign d 2 = 4h 5

\5? d 2 = 4h

4h = 5d 2

h = 5d 2
