(iii) Joel wants to draw a pie chart to show the results in the table.
(a) Show that the sector angle for the number 2 is 54°.
(b) Find the sector angle for the number 6.
(c) Joel asks 30 students to guess the number that the spinner will land on next.
This pie chart shows the results.
(i) The sector angle for the number 6 is 168°.
How many students guessed the number 6?
(ii) Find the percentage of the students who guessed a number less than 5.
(iii) Joel spins the spinner.
10% of the students guessed correctly.
Which number did the spinner land on?
- (a) A farmer has 45 horses and 20 cows.
(i) Write this as a ratio of horses : cows.
Give your answer in its simplest form.
(ii) The farmer wants the ratio of horses : cows to equal 5 : 3.
He keeps his 45 horses and buys some more cows.
Work out the number of cows he must buy.
(b) Six years ago the farmer invested $3750 at a rate of 4% per year compound interest.
(i) Calculate the total value of his investment after the 6 years.
Give your answer correct to the nearest dollar.
(ii) The farmer wants to spend his investment on buying goats.
Goats cost $126 each.
Work out the maximum number of goats he can buy and the amount of money left over.
(c) The farmer grows carrots.
In 2018 the selling price for carrots was $96 per tonne.
In 2019 this selling price increased by 18%.
Work out the increase in the selling price from 2018 to 2019.
- A sequence of patterns is made using lines and dots.
The first three patterns in the sequence are shown below.
(a) Draw Pattern 4 on the grid.
(b) Complete the table.
(c) Find an expression, in terms of n, for
(i) the number of dots in Pattern n,
(ii) the number of lines in Pattern n.
(d) A pattern has 76 lines.
Work out how many dots are in this pattern.
- (a) Solve these equations.
(i) x + 7 = 15
(ii) 5(3x + 8) = 10
(b) A club is arranging transport for its members.
Speedy Coaches charge $625 plus $15 per member.
The total cost, in dollars, for x members is given by the expression 15x + 625.
(i) Sporty Coaches charge $117 plus $19 per member.
Write an expression for the total cost, in dollars, for x members.
(ii) The total cost is the same for both Speedy Coaches and Sporty Coaches.
Write down an equation and solve it to find x.
- (a) The line L is shown on the grid.
Find the equation of the line in the form y = mx + c.
(b) (i) Complete the table of values for y = x2 + 2x + 4
(ii) On the grid opposite, draw the graph of y = x2 + 2x + 4 for -2 ≤ x ≤ 3
(c) For -2 ≤ x ≤ 3, write down the x-coordinate of the point of intersection of the line L with the curve y = x2 + 2x + 4
