In a town of 6250 inhabitants, there were 62 births during 1984. Find the percentage birth rate A. 3% B. 1.0% C. 2.5% D. 5.40%
Show Content
Detailed SolutionPercentage birthrate = \(\frac{62}{6250} \times 100%\)= \(\frac{6200}{6250}\) = 0.992% \(\approx\) 1.0%. There is an explanation video available below. 

2. 
Simplify 1¼ ÷ (2 ÷ ¼ of 28) A. 1 \( \frac{3}{8}\) B. 2 \( \frac{3}{4}\) C. 4 \( \frac{3}{8}\) D. 3 \( \frac{1}{5}\) 

3.

4. 
If three staff of Myschool Limited agreed to share their salary arrears in the ration of their ages, which are 18 years, 20 years, 22 years respectively. If the sum of the money collected is N120,000.00K, How much does the second staff received? A. N36,000 B. N44,000 C. N40,000 D. N15,000
Show Content
Detailed SolutionTotal of their ages: 18 + 20 + 22 = 60The second staff will get \(\frac{20}{60} \times 120,000\) = N40,000.00K There is an explanation video available below. 

5. 
X and Y are two sets such that n(X) = 15, n(Y) = 12 and n{X ∩ Y} = 7. Find ∩{X ∪ Y} A. 21 B. 225 C. 15 D. 20
Show Content
Detailed Solutionn(X ∪ Y) = n(X) + n(Y) − n(X ∩ Y)= 15 + 12 − 7 ∴ n(X ∪ Y) = 20 There is an explanation video available below. 

6. 
Find the x and z intercepts of the graph of 3x  z \(\leq\) 9 A. (3, 9) B. (3, 9) C. (3, 9) D. (3, 0)
Show Content
Detailed SolutionStarting from 3x − z \(\leq\) 9x = 0, substitute the value of x (i.e. x = 0) into the equation 3x − z \(\leq\) 9 3(0) − z \(\leq\) 9 z \(\leq\) − 9 If z = 0 Then, 3x − 0 \(\leq\) 9 3x \(\leq\) 9 x \(\leq\) 3 Intercept of x and z i.e (x,z) = (3, 9) There is an explanation video available below. 

7. 
Simplify log_{10}1.5 + 3 log_{10}2 − log_{10}0.3 A. log_{10}4 B. log_{10}40 C. log_{10}40 D. log_{10}4^{} 

8. 
Find the total surface area of a cylinder of base radius 5cm and length 7cm ( π = 3.14) A. 17.8cm^{2} B. 15.8cm^{2} C. 75.4cm^{2} D. 54.7cm^{2} E. \(377.0cm^{2}\)
Show Content
Detailed SolutionThe total surface area of a cylinder = 2πrl + 2πr2= 2πr(l + r) = 2 × 3.14 x 5(7+5) 2 × 3.14 × 12 x 5 = 377.1cm (1DP) There is an explanation video available below. 

9. 
If x + y = 90 simplify (sinx + siny)2−2sinxsiny A. 1 B. 0 C. 2 D. 1
Show Content
Detailed SolutionGiven: \(x + y = 90° ... (1)\)\((\sin x + \sin y)^{2}  2\sin x \sin y = \sin^{2} x + \sin^{2} y + 2\sin x \sin y  2\sin x \sin y\) = \(\sin^{2} x + \sin^{2} y ... (2)\) Recall: \(\sin x = \cos (90  x) ... (a)\) From (1), \(y = 90  x ... (b)\) Putting (a) and (b) in (2), we have \(\sin^{2} x + \sin^{2} y \equiv \cos^{2} (90  x) + \sin^{2} (90  x)\) = 1 There is an explanation video available below. 

10. 
A man with an annual salary of N2000, has allowances of N600. If Income Tax is 5%. How much income tax expenses does he pay each year? A. 15 B. 50 C. 70 D. 25
Show Content
Detailed SolutionHis annual salary = N2000His allowances = N600 So his taxable income = Annual salary − allowance = N2000 − N600 = N1400 He pay at 5% Then, his allowance income tax 5/100 × 1400 = N70 There is an explanation video available below. 

11. 
Solve the equation \( 3x^2 − 4x − 5 = 0 \) A. x = 1.75 or − 0.15 B. x = 2.12 or − 0.79 C. x = 1.5 or − 0.34 D. x = 2.35 or −1.23
Show Content
Detailed SolutionUsing the quadratic formula, we have\(x = \frac{b \pm \sqrt{b^{2}  4ac}}{2a}\) From the equation \(3x^{2}  4x  5 = 0\), a = 3, b = 4 and c = 5. \(\therefore x = \frac{(4) \pm \sqrt{(4)^{2}  4(3)(5)}}{2(3)}\) = \(\frac{4 \pm \sqrt{16 + 60}}{6}\) = \(\frac{4 \pm \sqrt{76}}{6}\) = \(\frac{4 \pm 8.72}{6}\) = \(\frac{4 + 8.72}{6} \text{ or } \frac{4  8.72}{6}\) = \(\frac{12.72}{6} \text{ or } \frac{4.72}{6}\) \(x = \text{2.12 or 0.79}\) There is an explanation video available below.

Detailed SolutionThe slope of the line from (0, 0) passing through (3, 4) = \(\frac{4  0}{3  0}\)= \(\frac{4}{3}\) Equation of a line is given as \(y = mx + b\), where m = slope and b = intercept. To get the value of b, we use a point on the line, say (0, 0). \(y = \frac{4}{3} x + b\) \(0 = \frac{4}{3}(0) + b\) \(b = 0\) The equation of the line is \(y = \frac{4}{3} x\) There is an explanation video available below.
