Convert 101101_{two} to a number in base ten

**Answer Details**

To convert a binary number to a decimal number, we need to multiply each digit of the binary number by its corresponding power of 2, starting from the rightmost digit with the power of 0, and then add the products.

Let's apply this method to convert the binary number 101101 to a decimal number:

1 0 1 1 0 1 (binary digits) 2^{5}2^{4}2^{3}2^{2}2^{1}2^{0}(corresponding powers of 2) 32 0 8 4 0 1 (products)

Now we can add the products to get the decimal equivalent of the binary number:

32 + 0 + 8 + 4 + 0 + 1 = 45

Therefore, the binary number 101101_{two} is equal to the decimal number 45, which corresponds to.

**Therefore, the correct answer is: 45.**

Make f the subject of the relation \(v = u + ft\)

**Answer Details**

To make `f` the subject of the relation `v = u + ft`, we need to isolate `f` on one side of the equation. Starting with `v = u + ft`, we can begin by subtracting `u` from both sides to get: `v - u = ft` Then, dividing both sides by `t`, we get: `f = (v - u)/t` Therefore, the correct answer is: - `(v-u)/t`

XOY is a real sector of a circle center O of radius 3.5cm which subtends an angle of 144^{o} at the center. Calculate, in term of ϖ, the area of the sector

**Answer Details**

To find the area of the sector, we first need to find the length of the arc XOY.

The formula for the length of an arc of a sector is given by:

**length of arc = (angle/360) x 2 x ϖ x radius**

Substituting the given values, we get:

**length of arc = (144/360) x 2 x ϖ x 3.5**

Simplifying this expression, we get:

**length of arc = 1.4ϖ**

So the length of arc XOY is **1.4ϖ cm**.

To find the area of the sector, we use the formula:

**area of sector = (angle/360) x ϖ x radius^2**

Substituting the given values, we get:

**area of sector = (144/360) x ϖ x 3.5^2**

Simplifying this expression, we get:

**area of sector = 4.9ϖ**

Therefore, the area of the sector is **4.9ϖ cm ^{2}**.

So the correct option is **4**.

**Question 9**
**Report**

From a point P, R is 5km due west and 12km due south. Find the distance between P and R

**Answer Details**

To find the distance between points P and R, we can use the **Pythagorean theorem** which states that in a right-angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

In this case, we can consider P, R, and the point where the southward line from P intersects with the westward line from R, forming a right-angled triangle as shown in the diagram below:

R * | | |12 km | | *------P 5 km

Let's call the point where the two lines intersect Q. Then we can see that the distance between P and Q is 5km, and the distance between Q and R is 12km. Therefore, we can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the distance between P and R as follows:

distance between P and R = sqrt(5^2 + 12^2) = sqrt(169) = 13 km

Therefore, the correct answer is **13km**.

**Report**

The lengths of the adjacent sides of a right - angled triangle are xcm, (x-1)cm. If the length of the hypotenuse is \(\sqrt{13}cm\), find the value of x

**Answer Details**

Let's use the Pythagorean Theorem which states that in a right-angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse (the longest side) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. Therefore, for this triangle, we have: \begin{align*} (\text{hypotenuse})^2 &= (\text{one side})^2 + (\text{other side})^2 \\ (\sqrt{13})^2 &= x^2 + (x-1)^2 \\ 13 &= x^2 + (x-1)^2 \\ 13 &= x^2 + x^2 - 2x + 1 \\ 0 &= 2x^2 - 2x - 12 \\ 0 &= x^2 - x - 6 \\ 0 &= (x-3)(x+2) \end{align*} We get two values: x=3 and x=-2. However, x must be positive, so we choose x=3 as the correct value. Therefore, the value of x is 3.

Solve the equation 2x - 3y = 22; 3x + 2y = 7

**Answer Details**

To solve the system of equations 2x - 3y = 22 and 3x + 2y = 7, we can use the method of elimination. Multiplying the first equation by 2 and the second equation by 3, we get: 4x - 6y = 44 (1) 9x + 6y = 21 (2) Adding equations (1) and (2), we get: 13x = 65 Dividing both sides by 13, we get: x = 5 Substituting x = 5 into the second equation, we get: 3(5) + 2y = 7 Simplifying: 15 + 2y = 7 Subtracting 15 from both sides, we get: 2y = -8 Dividing both sides by 2, we get: y = -4 Therefore, the solution to the system of equations is x = 5 and y = -4, which corresponds to option (D).

The monthly salary of a man increased from N2,700 to N3,200. Find the percentage increase

**Answer Details**

We can use the formula for percentage increase: percentage increase = (new value - old value) / old value x 100% Here, the old salary was N2,700 and the new salary is N3,200. So, the percentage increase in salary would be: = (3200 - 2700) / 2700 x 100% = 500 / 2700 x 100% = 0.185 x 100% = 18.5% Therefore, the percentage increase in the man's salary is 18.5%. Hence, the answer is: 18.5%.

A regular polygon has 9 sides. What is the size of one of its exterior angles?

**Answer Details**

The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is 360 degrees. In a regular polygon, all the exterior angles have the same measure, so to find the measure of one exterior angle, we divide 360 by the number of sides. For a regular polygon with 9 sides, each exterior angle has a measure of 360/9 = 40 degrees. Therefore, the answer is option (B), 40^{o}. To summarize, the measure of one exterior angle of a regular polygon with 9 sides is 40 degrees, since the sum of the exterior angles is 360 degrees and they are all equal in measure.

expand (2x-3y)(x-5y)

**Answer Details**

To expand (2x-3y)(x-5y), we use the distributive property of multiplication, which states that a(b+c) = ab + ac. Applying this property, we get: (2x-3y)(x-5y) = 2x(x-5y) - 3y(x-5y) = 2x^2 - 10xy - 3xy + 15y^2 = 2x^2 - 13xy + 15y^2 Therefore, the answer is (2x^2 - 13xy + 15y^2).

For what values of y is the expression \(\frac{6y-1}{y^2 - y-6}\)

**Answer Details**

To determine the values of y for which the expression \(\frac{6y-1}{y^2 - y-6}\) is defined, we need to find the values of y that make the denominator of the expression nonzero. The denominator of the expression is \(y^2 - y-6\), which can be factored as \((y-3)(y+2)\). Therefore, the expression is undefined when \(y=3\) or \(y=-2\), because in those cases the denominator becomes zero. So, the values of y for which the expression is defined are all the real numbers except 3 and -2. That means, y can be any number other than 3 and -2. Therefore, the correct answer is: y can be any number other than 3 and -2.

What is the total surface area of a closed cylinder of height 10cm and diameter 7cm? [Take \(\pi = \frac{22}{7}\)]

**Answer Details**

The formula for the total surface area of a cylinder is given by: `2πrh + 2πr^2` Where `r` is the radius of the circular base of the cylinder and `h` is its height. In this case, the diameter of the cylinder is given as 7cm. We need to find the radius of the cylinder first. We know that the diameter is 7cm, which means the radius is half of the diameter. `radius = 7/2 = 3.5cm` The height of the cylinder is given as 10cm. Now, we can substitute the values in the formula to find the total surface area of the cylinder. `2πrh + 2πr^2` `= 2 × (22/7) × 3.5 × 10 + 2 × (22/7) × 3.5^2` `= 220 + 77` `= 297cm^2` Therefore, the total surface area of the cylinder is 297cm^2. The answer is.

The figure shows a quadrilateral PQRS having equal sides and opposite sides parallel. The diagonals PR and QS intersect perpendicularly at O, Which of the following statements **cannot** be correct

**Answer Details**

Since PQRS is a quadrilateral with equal sides and opposite sides parallel, it must be a parallelogram. Since PR and QS are diagonals of this parallelogram and intersect perpendicularly at O, O is the midpoint of both PR and QS. Therefore, |PO|=|RO|. If PQR is an equilateral triangle, then PQ=QR=RP, which means that PQRS would be a rhombus (a special case of a parallelogram with all sides equal), not just a parallelogram. This contradicts the given information, so option (B) cannot be correct. If PQRX is a parallelogram, then PQ and RX are parallel and PQ=RX because PQRS is a parallelogram with opposite sides parallel and equal in length. This would mean that the diagonals PR and QS intersect at the midpoint of PQ and RX, not perpendicularly. This contradicts the given information that PR and QS intersect perpendicularly at O, so option (C) cannot be correct. There are no conditions given about the symmetry of the quadrilateral PQRS, so option (D) may or may not be correct. The presence or absence of lines of symmetry does not contradict any of the given information or the other options. Therefore, the statement that cannot be correct is option (B), "PQR is an equilateral triangle," since it contradicts the given information that PQRS is a parallelogram with equal sides and opposite sides parallel.

A rectangular packet has inner dimension 16cm by 12cm by 6cm. How many cubes of sugar of side 2cm can be neatly packed into the packet?

**Answer Details**

To solve this problem, we need to calculate the volume of the rectangular packet and the volume of each cube of sugar, and then divide the volume of the packet by the volume of each cube. The volume of the rectangular packet is: $$V_{packet} = 16 \text{cm} \times 12 \text{cm} \times 6 \text{cm} = 1152 \text{cm}^3$$ The volume of each cube of sugar is: $$V_{cube} = 2 \text{cm} \times 2 \text{cm} \times 2 \text{cm} = 8 \text{cm}^3$$ To calculate how many cubes of sugar can be packed into the packet, we divide the volume of the packet by the volume of each cube: $$\frac{V_{packet}}{V_{cube}} = \frac{1152 \text{cm}^3}{8 \text{cm}^3} = 144$$ Therefore, 144 cubes of sugar of side 2cm can be neatly packed into the rectangular packet. Hence, the correct answer is 144.

The probability that John and James pass an examination are 3/4 and 3/5 respectively, find the probability of both boys failing the examination

**Answer Details**

The probability that John passes the exam is 3/4, so the probability that John fails the exam is 1-3/4=1/4. Similarly, the probability that James fails the exam is 1-3/5=2/5. Now, we need to find the probability that both John and James fail the exam. We can use the multiplication rule of probability which states that the probability of two independent events occurring together is the product of their individual probabilities. Therefore, the probability of both John and James failing the exam is: (1/4) x (2/5) = 1/10 So, the answer is \(\frac{1}{10}\).

**Answer Details**

To evaluate the expression, we must follow the order of operations, which is also known as PEMDAS (parentheses, exponents, multiplication and division, addition and subtraction). Starting with the parentheses, we have: $$7\frac{1}{2}-\left(2\frac{1}{2}+3\right)\div\frac{33}{2}$$ $$=7\frac{1}{2}-\left(5+\frac{3}{1}\right)\div\frac{33}{2}$$ $$=7\frac{1}{2}-\left(5+\frac{3}{1}\right)\times\frac{2}{33}$$ $$=7\frac{1}{2}-\left(5\times\frac{2}{33}+\frac{3}{1}\times\frac{2}{33}\right)$$ $$=7\frac{1}{2}-\left(\frac{10}{33}+\frac{6}{33}\right)$$ $$=7\frac{1}{2}-\frac{16}{33}$$ Now, we need to find a common denominator to subtract the fractions. We can convert the mixed number to an improper fraction and multiply by $\frac{33}{33}$ to get: $$=7\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{33}{33}-\frac{16}{33}$$ $$=\frac{15}{2}\times\frac{33}{33}-\frac{16}{33}$$ $$=\frac{495}{66}-\frac{16}{33}$$ $$=\frac{495-32}{66}$$ $$=\frac{463}{66}$$ To round to the nearest whole number, we divide 463 by 66 and round to the nearest whole number: $$\frac{463}{66}\approx7$$ Therefore, the correct answer is 7.

Correct 0.04945 to two significant figures

**Answer Details**

When rounding a number to a certain number of significant figures, we look at the digit to the right of the last significant figure we want to keep. If that digit is 5 or greater, we round up the last significant figure. If it is less than 5, we simply drop all the digits to the right of the last significant figure. In this case, we want to round 0.04945 to two significant figures. The last significant figure we want to keep is the 9, so we look at the digit to its right, which is 4. Since 4 is less than 5, we simply drop all the digits to the right of the last significant figure, and the rounded value is 0.049. Therefore, the correct answer is option (ii) 0.049.

An arc of a circle of radius 14cm subtends angle 300^{o} at the center. Find the perimeter of the sector formed by the arc

**Answer Details**

To find the perimeter of the sector, we need to find the length of the arc and the length of the two radii that form the sector. The circumference of a circle with radius 14cm is given by: C = 2πr = 2π(14) = 28π Therefore, the length of the arc subtending an angle of 300 degrees is: L = (300/360) × 28π = 7π/3 × 28 ≈ 73.33cm The length of the two radii that form the sector is: 2r = 2 × 14 = 28cm Therefore, the perimeter of the sector is: P = L + 2r ≈ 73.33 + 28 = 101.33cm Hence, the correct option is (c) 101.33cm.

**Answer Details**

A fair die has six equally likely outcomes, which are the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. To find the probability of obtaining neither 5 nor 2, we first need to find the number of outcomes that satisfy this condition. There are four outcomes that are not 5 or 2, which are 1, 3, 4, and 6. Therefore, the probability of obtaining neither 5 nor 2 is the number of outcomes that satisfy this condition divided by the total number of possible outcomes, which is 4/6 or 2/3. Thus, the answer is option (B), \(\frac{2}{3}\). To summarize, the probability of obtaining neither 5 nor 2 when a fair die is tossed once is 2/3, since there are four outcomes that satisfy this condition out of a total of six possible outcomes.

**Answer Details**

The locus of a point R which moves in a plane such that it is equidistant from two intersecting lines is a bisector of the angle formed by the lines. This is because a point equidistant from two intersecting lines is located at the same distance from each line, and the only points that satisfy this condition lie on the bisector of the angle formed by the lines. Therefore, the correct option is: the bisector of the angle formed by the lines.

A sequence is given by \(2\frac{1}{2}, 5, 7\frac{1}{2}, .....\) if the nth term is 25, find n

**Answer Details**

**The given sequence is an arithmetic sequence**, because the difference between consecutive terms is constant. To find the common difference d, we subtract the second term from the first term:

5 - 2.5 = 2.5

So the common difference is 2.5. We can use this common difference to find any term of the sequence, using the formula:

an = a1 + (n - 1)d

where an is the nth term, a1 is the first term, n is the term number, and d is the common difference.

We know that the nth term is 25, so we can set an = 25 and solve for n:

25 = 2.5 + (n - 1)2.5

Simplifying the equation, we get:

22.5 = 2.5n - 2.5 25 = 2.5n n = 10

Therefore, the term number n for which the nth term of the sequence is 25 is 10, which corresponds to.

Therefore, the correct answer is: **10**.

Ladi sold a car for N84,000 at a loss of 4%. How much did ladi buy the car

**Answer Details**

When Ladi sold the car, he made a loss of 4%. This means that he sold the car for 96% of its original value (100% - 4% = 96%). We can use this information to find the original price of the car. Let's assume that the original price of the car was x Naira. Then, the selling price of the car (i.e., the price at which Ladi sold the car) would be 96% of x, or 0.96x Naira. We know that Ladi sold the car for N84,000, so we can set up an equation: 0.96x = 84,000 Solving for x, we get: x = 84,000 / 0.96 x = 87,500 Therefore, the original price of the car was N87,500. So the correct option is 4.

**Answer Details**

To calculate the percentage increase in the salary of a man, we need to find the difference between the new and old salary and then express it as a percentage of the old salary. Let's assume the old salary was 40x and the new salary is 47x (where x is a constant). Then, the increase in salary = 47x - 40x = 7x. Now, the percentage increase in salary = (increase in salary / old salary) x 100% = (7x / 40x) x 100% = 17.5% Therefore, the percentage increase in the salary of the man is 17.5%. Answer is correct.

Simplify: \(\frac{2}{3xy} - \frac{3}{4yz}\)

**Answer Details**

To simplify the expression `\(\frac{2}{3xy} - \frac{3}{4yz}\)`

, we need to find a common denominator and combine the two fractions.

The common denominator of the two fractions is **12xyz**, which is the lowest multiple of **3xy** and **4yz**. We can convert each fraction to an equivalent fraction with the common denominator of **12xyz** as follows:

```
2 3 4
-- - -- = --
3xy 4yz 12xyz
```

To find the numerators of the equivalent fractions, we multiply each numerator by the missing factor in the denominator of the other fraction. For example, we multiply the numerator of the first fraction by 4z to get a denominator of 12xyz, and we multiply the numerator of the second fraction by 3x to get a denominator of 12xyz:

```
2(4z) 3(3x) 8z - 9x
------ - ------ = --------
3xy(4z) 4yz(3x) 12xyz
```

Now we can simplify the expression by combining the two fractions:

```
8z - 9x
--------
12xyz
```

Therefore, the simplified expression is `\(\frac{8z-9x}{12xyz}\)`

, which corresponds to.

Therefore, the correct answer is: `\(\frac{8z-9x}{12xyz}\)`

What is the equation of the curve?

**Answer Details**

The equation of the curve is: \(y=x^2-5x+4\) This is a quadratic equation in standard form, where the coefficient of the \(x^2\) term is 1, the coefficient of the \(x\) term is -5, and the constant term is 4. The graph of a quadratic equation is a parabola. The coefficient of the \(x^2\) term determines whether the parabola opens upwards or downwards. In this case, since the coefficient is positive, the parabola opens upwards. To find the vertex of the parabola, we can use the formula: \(-\frac{b}{2a}\), where \(a\) is the coefficient of the \(x^2\) term and \(b\) is the coefficient of the \(x\) term. Substituting the values, we get: \(-\frac{b}{2a}=-\frac{-5}{2(1)}=\frac{5}{2}\) So the vertex is at \(\left(\frac{5}{2},\frac{1}{4}\right)\). Therefore, the equation of the curve is \(y=x^2-5x+4\).

A train moving at a uniform speed covers 36km in 21 minutes. How long does it take to cover 60km?

**Answer Details**

We can use the formula:

distance = speed x time

to solve the problem.

We are given that the train covers **36 km** in **21 minutes**. We want to find how long it will take to cover **60 km**.

Let's first convert **21 minutes** to hours:

21 minutes = 21/60 hours = 0.35 hours

Now we can use the formula to find the speed of the train:

36 km = speed x 0.35 hours

Solving for speed, we get:

speed = 36/0.35 km/h

Using a calculator, we can evaluate this expression to get:

speed = 102.86 km/h

Now we can use the speed to find the time it takes to cover **60 km**:

60 km = 102.86 km/h x time

Solving for time, we get:

time = 60/102.86 hours

Converting this to minutes, we get:

time = (60/102.86) x 60 minutes

Simplifying this expression, we get:

time = 35 minutes (approx)
