**16. Correct answer: 10**

Given:

The figure

2 circles with same center

Shaded area = 64π

The smaller circle has a radius of 6

To find:

The radius of the larger circle

Solution:

Topic(s): Area of circle

Let *r* be the radius of the bigger circle

Shaded area = Area of bigger circle – area of smaller circle

**Answer: 10**

**17. Correct answer: 8**

Given:

*p*, *r* and *s* are 3 different prime numbers greater than 2

*n* = *p* × *r* × *s *

To find:

The number of positive factors of *n*, including 1 and *n*

Solution:

Topic(s): Factors

The positive factors of *n* are

1, *n*, *p, r, s, pr, ps, *and *sr*

There are 8 factors

**Answer: 8**

**18. Correct answer: 70**

Given:

*h*(*t*)= *c* – (*d* – 4*t*)^{2}

At *t* = 0, the height = 6

At *t* = 2.5, the height = 106

To find:

The height of the ball at time *t*

Solution:

Substitute *t* = 0 and *h*(*t*) = 6

6 = *c* – *d*^{2} (equation 1)

Substitute *t* = 2.5 and *h*(*t*) = 106

Replace *c* – *d* 2 by 6 (from equation 1)

(equation 2)

To find height at *t* =1.

(equation 3)

Substitute equation 1 and equation 2 into equation 3

*h*(1) = 6 + 8(10) – 16 = 70

**Answer 70**
