16. Correct answer: 10

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

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

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

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

h(t)= c – (d – 4t)2
At t = 0, the height = 6
At t = 2.5, the height = 106

To find:
The height of the ball at time t

Substitute t = 0 and h(t) = 6
6 = cd2 (equation 1)

Substitute t = 2.5 and h(t) = 106

Replace cd 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
