1. 
If 1011_{2} + x_{7} = 25_{10}, solve for X. A. 20_{7} B. 14 C. 20 D. 24
Show Content
Detailed Solution1011_{2} + x_{7} = 25_{10} = 1011_{2} = 1 x 2^{3} + 0 x 2^{2} + 1 x 2^{1} + 1 x 2^{o}= 8 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 11_{10} x_{7} = 25_{10}  11_{10} = 14_{10} \(\begin{array}{cc} 7 & 14 \\ 7 & 2 R 0 \\ & 0 R 2 \end{array}\) X = 20_{7} 

2. 
Evaluate [\(\frac{1}{0.03}\) \(\div\) \(\frac{1}{0.024}\)]^{1} correct to 2 decimal places A. 3.76 B. 1.25 C. 0.94 D. 0.75
Show Content
Detailed Solution[\(\frac{1}{0.03}\) + \(\frac{1}{0.024}\)]= [\(\frac{1}{0.03 \times 0.024}\)]^{1} = [\(\frac{0.024}{0.003}\)]^{1} = \(\frac{0.03}{0.024}\) = \(\frac{30}{24}\) = 1.25 

3. 
If b^{3} = a^{2} and c^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)} = a^{\(\frac{1}{2}\)}b, express c in terms of a A. a^{\(\frac{1}{2}\)} B. a^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)} C. a^{\(\frac{3}{2}\)} D. a^{\(\frac{2}{3}\)}
Show Content
Detailed Solutionc^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)} = a^{\(\frac{1}{2}\)}b= a^{\(\frac{1}{2}\)}b x a^{2} = a^{\(\frac{3}{2}\)} = (c^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)})^{3} = (a^{\(\frac{3}{2}\)})^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)} c = a^{\(\frac{1}{2}\)} 

4. 
Given that log_{4}(Y  1) + log_{4}(\(\frac{1}{2}\)x) = 1 and log_{2}(y + 1) + log_{2}x = 2, solve for x and y respectively A. 2, 3 B. 3, 2 C. 2, 3 D. 3, 2
Show Content
Detailed Solutionlog_{4}(y  1) + log_{4}(\(\frac{1}{2}\)x) = 1log_{4}(y  1)(\(\frac{1}{2}\)x) \(\to\) (y  1)(\(\frac{1}{2}\)x) = 4 ........(1) log_{2}(y + 1) + log_{2}x = 2 log_{2}(y + 1)x = 2 \(\to\) (y + 1)x = 2_{2} = 4.....(ii) From equation (ii) x = \(\frac{4}{y + 1}\)........(iii) put equation (iii) in (i) = y (y  1)[\(\frac{1}{2}(\frac{4}{y  1}\))] = 4 = 2y  2 = 4y + 4 2y = 6 y = 3 x = \(\frac{ 

5. 
Find the value of k if \(\frac{k}{\sqrt{3} + \sqrt{2}}\) = k\(\sqrt{3  2}\) A. 3 B. 2 C. \(\sqrt{3}\) D. \(\sqrt 2\)
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(\frac{k}{\sqrt{3} + \sqrt{2}}\) = k\(\sqrt{3  2}\)\(\frac{k}{\sqrt{3} + \sqrt{2}}\) x \(\frac{\sqrt{3}  \sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{3}  \sqrt{2}}\) = k\(\sqrt{3  2}\) = k(\(\sqrt{3}  \sqrt{2}\)) = k\(\sqrt{3  2}\) = k\(\sqrt{3}\)  k\(\sqrt{2}\) = k\(\sqrt{3  2}\) k2 = \(\sqrt{2}\) k = \(\frac{2}{\sqrt{2}}\) = \(\sqrt{2}\) 

6. 
A market woman sells oil in cylindrical tins 10cm deep and 6cm in diameter at N15.00 each. If she bought a full cylindrical jug 18cm deep and 10cm in diameter for N50.00, how much did she make by selling all the oil? A. N62.50 B. N35.00 C. N31.00 D. N25.00

Detailed SolutionV\(\pi\)r^{2}h = \(\pi\)(3)^{2}(10) = 90\(\pi\)cm^{3}V = \(\pi\)(5)^{2} x 18 = 450\(\pi\)cm^{3} No of volume = \(\frac{450\pi}{90\pi}\) = 5 selling price = 5 x N15 = N75 profit = N75  N50 = N25.00 

7. 
A man is paid r naira per hour for normal work and double rate for overtime. if he does a 35hour week which includes q hours of overtime, what is his weekly earning in naira? A. r(35 + q) B. q(35r  q) C. q(35 + r) D. r(35 + 2q)
Show Content
Detailed SolutionThe cost of normal work = 35rThe cost of overtime = q x 2r = 2qr The man's total weekly earning = 35r + 2qr = r(35 + 2q) 

8. 
When the expression pm^{2} + qm + 1 is divided by (m  1), it has a remainder is 4, Find p and q respectively A. 2, 1 B. 1, 2 C. 3, 2 D. 2, 3
Show Content
Detailed Solutionpm^{2} + qm + 1 = (m  1) Q(x) + 2p(1)^{2} + q(1) + 1 = 2 p + q + 1 = 2 p + q = 1.....(i) pm^{2} + qm + 1 = (m  1)Q(x) + 4 p(1)^{2} + q(1) + 1 = 4 p  q + 1 = 4 p  q = 3....(ii) p + q = 1, p  q = 3 2p = 2, p = 1 1 + q = 1 q = 2 

9. 
Factorize r^{2}  r(2p + q) + 2pq A. (r  2q)(2r  p) B. (r  p)(r + p0 C. (r  q)(r  2p) D. (2r  q)(r + p)
Show Content
Detailed Solutionr^{2}  r(2p + q) + 2pq = r^{2}  2pr qr + 2pq= r(r  2p)  q(r  2p) = (r  q)(r  2p) 

10. 
Solve for the equation \(\sqrt{x}\)  \(\sqrt{(x  2)}\)  1 = 0 A. \(\frac{3}{2}\) B. \(\frac{2}{3}\) C. \(\frac{4}{9}\) D. \(\frac{9}{4}\)
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(\sqrt{x}\)  \(\sqrt{(x  2)}\)  1 = 0= \(\sqrt{x}\)  \(\sqrt{(x  2)}\) = 1 = (\(\sqrt{x}\)  \(\sqrt{(x  2)}\))^{2} = 1 = x  2 \(\sqrt{x(x  2)}\) + x 2 = 1 = (2x  3)^{2} = [2 \(\sqrt{x(x  4)}\)]^{2} = 4x^{2}  12x + 9 = 4(x^{2}  2x) = 4x^{2}  12x + 9 = 4x^{2}  8x 4x = 9 x = \(\frac{9}{4}\)
