1. Find the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of 108 and 120

2. There are 60 people in a choir.
Half of the people in the choir are women.
The number of women in the choir is 3 times the number of men in the choir.
The rest of the people in the choir are children.
the number of children in the choir : the number of men in the choir = n : 1
Work out the value of n.
You must show how you get your answer.

6. The cumulative frequency table shows information about the times, in minutes, taken by 40 people to complete a puzzle.
(a) On the grid below, draw a cumulative frequency graph for this information.
(b) Use your graph to find an estimate for the interquartile range.
One of the 40 people is chosen at random.
(c) Use your graph to find an estimate for the probability that this person took between 50 minutes and 90 minutes to complete the puzzle.

7. There are p counters in a bag.

12 of the counters are yellow.
Shafiq takes at random 30 counters from the bag.
5 of these 30 counters are yellow.
