#  Question  Ans 

1. 
Without using tables, evaluate \((343)^{\frac{1}{3}} \times (0.14)^{1} \times (25)^{\frac{1}{2}}\) A. 10 B. 12 C. 8 D. 7
Show Content
Detailed Solution\((343)^{\frac{1}{3}} \times (0.14)^{1} \times (25)^{\frac{1}{2}}\)= \(\sqrt[3]{343} \times (\frac{14}{100})^{1} \times (\sqrt{25})^{1}\) = \(7 \times \frac{100}{14} \times \frac{1}{5}\) = 10. 

2. 
In a school, 220 students offer Biology or Mathematics or both. 125 offer Biology and 110 mathematics. How many offer Biology but not Mathematics? A. 95 B. 80 C. 125 D. 110
Show Content
Detailed SolutionHint: Represent the question in a venn diagram, such thatn(B ∩ M) = x n(B) only = 125x n(M) only = 110x => 125x + 110x + x = 220 => x = 15. n(B) only = 125  15 = 110 

3. 
Simplify 52.4  5.7  3.45  1.75 A. 41.4 B. 41.5 C. 42.1 D. 42.2
Show Content
Detailed Solution52.4  5.7  3.45  1.75= 52.4  (5.7 + 3.45 + 1.75) = 52.4  10.90 = 41.5 

4. 
Simplify \((\sqrt{0.7} + \sqrt{70})^{2}\) A. 84.7 B. 70.7 C. 217.7 D. 168.7
Show Content
Detailed Solution\((\sqrt{0.7} + \sqrt{70})^{2}\)= \((\sqrt{0.7} + \sqrt{70})(\sqrt{0.7} + \sqrt{70})\) = \(0.7 + 2\sqrt{0.7 \times 70} + 70\) = \(0.7 + 14 + 70 \) = 84.7 

5. 
Evaluate: \(\frac{0.21 \times 0.072 \times 0.00054}{0.006 \times 1.68 \times 0.063}\) A. 0.01286 B. 0.01285 C. 0.1286 D. 0.1285
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(\frac{0.21 \times 0.072 \times 0.00054}{0.006 \times 1.68 \times 0.063}\)= \(\frac{9 \times 10^{10}}{7 \times 10^{8}}\) = \(1.2857 \times 10^{2}\) = \(0.012857 \approxeq 0.01286\) (to 4 s.f) 

6. 
A trader bought goats for N4000 each. He sold them for N180,000 at a loss of 25%. How many goats did he buy? A. 60 B. 50 C. 45 D. 36
Show Content
Detailed SolutionLet the number of goats be XC.P of X goats = N4000X S.P of X goats = (75/100) x 4000X = N3000X 3000X = 180,000 => X = 180000/3000 = 60. X = 60 goats 

7. 
If dy/dx = 2x  3 and y = 3 when x = 0, find y in terms of x. A. 2x^{2}  3x B. x^{2}  3x C. x^{2}  3x  3 D. x^{2}  3x + 3
Show Content
Detailed Solutiondy/dx = 2x  3y = ∫2x  3 dx => y = x^{2}  3x + c 3 = (0)^{2}  3(0) + c => c = 3 Thus y = x^{2}  3x + 3 

8. 
Find the derivative of \(y = \sin^{2} (5x)\) with respect to x. A. 10 sin 5x cos 5x B. 5 sin5x cos 5x C. 2 sin 5x cos 5x D. 15 sin 5x cos 5x
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(y = \sin^{2} (5x)\)Let u = sin 5x \(\frac{\mathrm d u}{\mathrm d x} = 5 \cos 5x\) \(\therefore y = u^{2}\) \(\frac{\mathrm d y}{\mathrm d u} = 2u\) \(\frac{\mathrm d y}{\mathrm d x} = 2u . 5 \cos 5x\) = \(10u \cos 5x\) = \(10 \sin 5x \cos 5x\) 

9. 
The slope of the tangent to the curve y = 3x\(^2\)  2x + 5 at the point (1, 6) is A. 4 B. 1 C. 6 D. 5
Show Content
Detailed Solutiony = 3x\(^2\)  2x + 5Slope = \(\frac{\mathrm d y}{\mathrm d x} = 6x  2\) At x = 1, Slope : 6(1)  2 = 4. 

10. 
Evaluate \(\int \sin 3x \mathrm d x\) A. (2/3) cos 3x + c B. (1/3) cos 3x + c C. (1/3) cos 3x + c D. (2/3) cos 3x + c
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(\int \sin 3x \mathrm d x =  \frac{\cos 3x}{3} + c\)= \(\frac{1}{3} (\cos 3x) + c\)
