1. 
Let P = {1, 2, u, v, w, x}; Q = {2, 3, u, v, w, 5, 6, y} and R = {2, 3, 4, v, x, y}. A. {1, x} B. {x y} C. {x} D. ɸ

Detailed SolutionP = {1,2,u,v,w,x}Q = {2,3,u,v,w,5,6,y} R = {2,3,4,v,x,y} P  Q = {1,x} (P  Q) ∩ R = {1,x} ∩ {2,3,4,v,x,y} = {x} NB: The set P−Q consists of elements that are in P but not in Q. 

2. 
If the population of a town was 240,000 in January 1998 and it increased by 2% each year, what would be the population of the town in January, 2000? A. 480,000 B. 249,696 C. 249,600 D. 244,800
Show Content
Detailed Solution1st year, Population = 240,000 x (2/100) = 4800.Being the 2nd year population = 240,000 + 4800 = 244800. Increase in Pop. in 2nd year = 244800 x (2/100) = 4896 Jan 2000, Pop. = 244800 + 4896 = 249,696 

3. 
If \(\frac{(2\sqrt{3}\sqrt{2})}{(\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2})} = m +n\sqrt{6}\), find the values of m and n respectively. A. 1, 2 B. 2, 1 C. \(\frac{2}{5}\), 1 D. 2, 3/5
Show Content
Detailed SolutionRationalize \(\frac{(2\sqrt{3}\sqrt{2})}{(\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2})}\) and equate to \(m +n\sqrt{6}\). Such that m = 2, and n = 1.Use \(\sqrt{3}2\sqrt{2}\) as the conjugate for Rationalization \(\frac{(2\sqrt{3}\sqrt{2})}{(\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{2})}\) X \(\frac{(\sqrt{3}2\sqrt{2})}{(\sqrt{3}2\sqrt{2})}\) \(\frac{6  4\sqrt{6}  \sqrt{6} + 4}{3  2\sqrt{6} + 2\sqrt{6}  8}\) =\(\frac{10  5\sqrt{6}}{5}\) = 2 + \(\sqrt{6}\) 

4. 
In a youth club with 94 members, 60 like modern music, and 50 like traditional music. The number of members who like both traditional and modern music is three times those who do not like any type of music. How many members like only one type of music? A. 8 B. 24 C. 62 D. 86
Show Content
Detailed Solutionx = no. of ppl that like none.no. of ppl that like both Traditional and Modern music, which is equal to 3x Modern Music = 60  3x Traditional Music = 50  3x 603x + 50  3x + 3x + x = 94 110  3x + x = 94 2x = 94  110 =>2x = 16, this x = 8. Members that like only one game: = 60  3x + 50  3x = 60  3[8] + 50  3[8] = 60  24 + 50  24 = 36 + 26 = 62 Members that like only one type of music = 62 

5. 
Evaluate \(\frac{(2.813 \times 10^{3} \times 1.063)}{(5.637 \times 10^{2})}\) reducing each number to two significant figures and leaving your answer in two significant figures. A. 0.056 B. 0.055 C. 0.054 D. 0.54
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(\frac{2.813 \times 10^{3} \times 1.063}{5.637 \times 10^{2}}\)= \(\frac{0.002813 \times 1.063}{0.05637}\) \(\approxeq \frac{0.0028 \times 1.1}{0.056}\) = \(0.055\) 

6. 
A man wishes to keep his money in a savings deposit at 25% compound interest so that after three years he can buy a car for N150,000. How much does he need to deposit? A. N112,000.50 B. N96,000.00 C. N85,714.28 D. N76,800.00
Show Content
Detailed SolutionAmount A = P(1+r)^{n};A = N150,000, r = 25%, n = 3. 150,000 = P(1+0.25)^{3} = P(1.25)^{3} P = 150,000/1.25^{3} =N76,800.00 

7. 
If 314_{10}  256_{7} = 340_{x}, find x. A. 7 B. 8 C. 9 D. 10
Show Content
Detailed Solution314_{10}  256_{7} = 340_{x},Convert 256_{7} and 340_{x} to base 10, such that: 314  139 = 3x^{2} + 4x => 3x^{2} + 4x  175 = 0 (quadratic) Factorising, (x  7) (3x + 25) = 0, either x = 7 or x = 25/3 ( but x cannot be negative) Therefore, x = 7. 

8. 
Simplify \(\frac{3(2^{n+1})  4(2^{n1})}{2^{n+1}  2^n}\) A. 2^{n+1} B. 2^{n1} C. 4 D. 1/4
Show Content
Detailed SolutionStart by expanding \(\frac{3(2^{n+1})  4(2^{n1})}{2^{n+1}  2^n}\):\(\frac{3 \times 2^n \times 2^1  2^2 \times 2^n \times 2^{1}}{2^n \times 2  2^n}\) NUMERATOR : 2\(^n\) ( 3\(^1\) X 2\(^1\)  2\(^2\) X 2\(^1\) ) > 2\(^n\) ( 3 X 2 — 4 X \(\frac{1}{2}\) ) > 2\(^n\) ( 6  2 ) > 2\(^n\) (4) DENOMINATOR : 2\(^n\) ( 2\(^1\)  1 ) > 2\(^n\) ( 2  1) > 2\(^n\) : [ 2\(^n\) ( 4) ] ÷ 2\(^n\) = 4 

9. 
If \(P344_{6}  23P2_{6} = 2PP2_{6}\), find the value of the digit P. A. 2 B. 3 C. 4 D. 5
Show Content
Detailed SolutionConvert everything to base 10 and collect like terms, such that:\(210P  42P = 434 + 406\) \(168P = 840\) \(P = 840/168 = 5\)
