Simplify (^{3}/_{4} + ^{1}/_{3}) x 4^{1}/_{3} + 3^{1}/_{4}

**Answer Details**

To simplify this expression, we need to follow the order of operations, which is Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction (PEMDAS). First, we can simplify the expression inside the parentheses: (^{3}/_{4} + ^{1}/_{3}) x 4^{1}/_{3} + 3^{1}/_{4} = (^{9}/_{12} + ^{4}/_{12}) x 4^{1}/_{3} + 3^{1}/_{4} = ^{13}/_{12} x 4^{1}/_{3} + 3^{1}/_{4} Next, we can simplify the exponent 4^{1}/_{3}. To do this, we can convert the mixed number to an improper fraction: 4^{1}/_{3} = ^{(4 x 3) + 1}/_{3} = ^{13}/_{3} Now we can substitute the value of 4^{1}/_{3} into the expression: ^{13}/_{12} x 4^{1}/_{3} + 3^{1}/_{4} = ^{13}/_{12} x ^{13}/_{3} + ^{13}/_{4} To simplify this, we can first simplify the multiplication of fractions: ^{13}/_{12} x ^{13}/_{3} = ^{169}/_{36} Now we can add the two fractions: ^{169}/_{36} + ^{13}/_{4} = ^{169}/_{36} + ^{39}/_{36} = ^{208}/_{36} = ^{13}{9} Therefore, the simplified expression is ^{13}{9}, which corresponds to option (E).

Find the median of the following set of scores:

65, 72, 55, 48, 78

**Answer Details**

To find the median of a set of scores, we need to arrange the scores in order of magnitude from smallest to largest. The scores in this set are: 48, 55, 65, 72, 78 There are five scores in this set, so the median will be the middle score. Since the scores are already in order, we can simply find the middle score, which is 65. Therefore, the median of this set of scores is 65.

**Question 5**
**Report**

If cos θ = 5/13, what is the value of tan \(\theta\) for 0 < θ < 90° ?

**Answer Details**

We can use the following trigonometric identity: \[\tan \theta = \frac{\sin \theta}{\cos \theta}\] We are given that $\cos \theta = 5/13$. To find $\sin \theta$, we can use the Pythagorean identity: \[\sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta = 1\] Substituting $\cos \theta = 5/13$, we get: \[\sin^2 \theta + \left(\frac{5}{13}\right)^2 = 1\] Simplifying, we get: \[\sin^2 \theta = 1 - \frac{25}{169} = \frac{144}{169}\] Taking the square root of both sides, we get: \[\sin \theta = \frac{12}{13}\] Substituting into the formula for $\tan \theta$, we get: \[\tan \theta = \frac{\sin \theta}{\cos \theta} = \frac{\frac{12}{13}}{\frac{5}{13}} = \boxed{\frac{12}{5}}\]

**Question 9**
**Report**

A fair die is rolled once. What is the probability of

obtaining 4 or 6?

**Answer Details**

When you roll a fair die, there are six possible outcomes, each with an equal chance of occurring. These outcomes are the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. To find the probability of obtaining 4 or 6, we need to count how many of the outcomes correspond to these numbers. In this case, there are two outcomes that satisfy the condition, namely 4 and 6. Therefore, the probability of obtaining 4 or 6 is 2 out of 6, or 2/6. We can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor, which is 2. This gives us 1/3. Therefore, the probability of obtaining 4 or 6 when rolling a fair die is 1/3.

**Report**

A bricklayer measured the length of a wall and obtained 4.10m. If the actual length of the wall is 4.25m, find his percentage error.

**Answer Details**

To find the percentage error, we need to find the absolute difference between the measured value and actual value, divide it by the actual value, and then multiply by 100 to get a percentage. Absolute difference = |actual value - measured value| = |4.25 - 4.10| = 0.15 Percentage error = (|actual value - measured value| / actual value) x 100% Percentage error = (0.15 / 4.25) x 100% = 3.529% (rounded to 3 decimal places) Therefore, the percentage error is approximately 3.529%, which corresponds to 3 9/17%.

**Question 12**
**Report**

The value of tan 315°

**Answer Details**

To find the value of tan 315°, we can use the identity: tan (θ + 180°) = tan θ Since tan (315° + 180°) = tan 495°, and 495° is coterminal with 135°, we have: tan 315° = tan (135° + 180°) = tan 135° Using the fact that tan 45° = 1, and tan (θ + 90°) = -cot θ, we have: tan 135° = tan (45° + 90°) = -cot 45° = -1 Therefore, the value of tan 315° is -1.

The angle of a sector of a circle of radius 8cm is 240°. This sector is bent to form a cone. Find the radius of the base of the cone.

**Answer Details**

The sector of the circle with an angle of 240° forms a cone. To find the radius of the base of the cone, we need to use the formula relating the arc length of the sector and the circumference of the base of the cone. The arc length of the sector is (240/360) * 2π * 8 = (4/3) * π * 8 = (32/3)π cm. The circumference of the base of the cone is equal to the arc length of the sector, so it is (32/3)π cm. We know that the circumference of a circle is equal to 2πr, where r is the radius of the circle. Therefore, we can write: (32/3)π = 2πr Simplifying the equation, we get: r = (16/3) cm So, the radius of the base of the cone is 16/3 cm. Therefore, the correct option is: 16/3cm

**Question 16**
**Report**

In the diagram above, O is the center of the circle QOR is a diameter and ?PSR is 37°. Find ?PRQ

**Answer Details**

Since QOR is a diameter, it divides the circle into two equal halves, which means that ?QOR is a right angle (90°). Thus, we have: ?PQR = 180° - ?QOR (sum of angles in a triangle) ?PQR = 180° - 90° (since ?QOR is a right angle) ?PQR = 90° Now, we have a right triangle PQR with right angle at Q. Since we know that ?PSR is 37°, we can use the fact that the sum of angles in a triangle is 180° to find ?PRQ: ?PQR + ?QPR + ?PRQ = 180° 90° + ?QPR + 37° = 180° ?QPR = 180° - 90° - 37° ?QPR = 53° Therefore, the answer is 53°.

Points X and Y are respectively 12m Nonh and

5m of point Z. Calculate XY

**Answer Details**

To find the distance between points X and Y, we can use the Pythagorean theorem, which states that for a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides. In this case, we can consider points X, Y, and Z as the vertices of a right triangle, where the right angle is at point Z. Then, XY is the hypotenuse, and we know that XZ = 12m and YZ = 5m. Therefore, we have: XY^2 = XZ^2 + YZ^2 XY^2 = 12^2 + 5^2 XY^2 = 144 + 25 XY^2 = 169 XY = √169 XY = 13m Therefore, the distance between points X and Y is 13m. So the answer is option (C) 13m.

What must be added to the expression x\(^2\) - 18x to make it a perfect square?

**Answer Details**

To make the expression x\(^2\) - 18x a perfect square, we need to add a constant term. The constant term should be half of the coefficient of x squared, which is (18/2)\(^2\) = 81. Therefore, we need to add 81 to the expression to make it a perfect square. Adding 81 to the expression gives: x\(^2\) - 18x + 81 = (x - 9)\(^2\) Thus, the answer is 81.

Three balls are drawn one after the other with replacement, from a bag containing 5 red, 9white and 4 blue identical balls, What is the probability that they are one red, one white and one blue?

**Answer Details**

The probability of drawing one red ball out of 18 balls is 5/18. Similarly, the probability of drawing one white ball is 9/18 (or 1/2) and the probability of drawing one blue ball is 4/18 (or 2/9). Since we are drawing three balls, we can find the probability of getting one red, one white, and one blue by multiplying the probabilities of each event happening together. Since we are drawing with replacement, the probabilities do not change from draw to draw. Thus, the probability of getting one red, one white, and one blue is: (5/18) x (1/2) x (2/9) = 5/162 Therefore, the answer is option C: 5/162.

Thus, the answer is (2).

A number is chosen at random from the set (1 ,2,3

....,9, 10). What is the probability that the number

**Answer Details**

There are 10 numbers in the set (1, 2, 3, ..., 9, 10). Out of these, the numbers that are greater than or equal to 7 are 7, 8, 9, and 10. So, there are 4 numbers that satisfy the given condition. Therefore, the probability of choosing a number that is greater than or equal to 7 is the number of numbers that satisfy the condition divided by the total number of numbers in the set, which is: 4/10 = 2/5 Hence, the probability that the number chosen at random from the set (1, 2, 3, ..., 9, 10) is greater than or equal to 7 is 2/5.

Solve the equation \(\frac{m}{3} + \frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{4} + \frac{m}{4}\)

**Answer Details**

First, we simplify both sides of the equation by getting rid of the fractions. To do this, we can multiply both sides by the least common multiple (LCM) of the denominators, which is 12. So we have: \begin{align*} \frac{m}{3} + \frac{1}{2} &= \frac{3}{4} + \frac{m}{4}\\ 4 \cdot \left(\frac{m}{3} + \frac{1}{2}\right) &= 4 \cdot \left(\frac{3}{4} + \frac{m}{4}\right)\\ \frac{4m}{3} + 2 &= \frac{9}{4} + \frac{m}{4} \end{align*} Next, we can simplify further by moving all the terms involving m to one side of the equation, and all the constant terms to the other side: \begin{align*} \frac{4m}{3} - \frac{m}{4} &= \frac{9}{4} - 2\\ \frac{16m}{12} - \frac{3m}{12} &= \frac{9}{4} - \frac{8}{4}\\ \frac{13m}{12} &= \frac{1}{4}\\ 13m &= 3\\ m &= \frac{3}{13} \end{align*} Therefore, the solution to the equation is \(m = \frac{3}{13}\). So the correct answer is 3.

Simplify: \((\frac{16}{81})^{\frac{1}{4}}\)

**Answer Details**

To simplify \((\frac{16}{81})^{\frac{1}{4}}\), we need to take the fourth root of \(\frac{16}{81}\). The fourth root of a number is the number that, when multiplied by itself four times, gives that number. So, to find the fourth root of \(\frac{16}{81}\), we need to find a number that, when multiplied by itself four times, gives \(\frac{16}{81}\). We can rewrite \(\frac{16}{81}\) as \((\frac{2}{3})^4\), since \(2^4=16\) and \(3^4=81\). Therefore, \((\frac{16}{81})^{\frac{1}{4}} = ((\frac{2}{3})^4)^{\frac{1}{4}} = \frac{2}{3}\), which is.

**Answer Details**

The total number of workers in the company is 24+27+12+15+9+3+18 = 108. The probability of an absent worker being a bricklayer is the ratio of the number of bricklayers to the total number of workers, which is 18/108 = 1/6. Therefore, the probability that the absent worker is a bricklayer is 1/6. Answer: 1/6.

The area of a parallelogram is given by the formula: Area = base × height In this problem, the area and height of the parallelogram are given as 513cm\(^2\) and 19cm respectively. We can rearrange the formula to solve for the base: base = Area ÷ height Substituting the given values, we get: base = 513cm\(^2\) ÷ 19cm = 27cm Therefore, the base of the parallelogram is 27cm. The answer is, 27cm.

Let U = {1, 2, 3, 4}, P = {2, 3} and Q = {2, 4}. What is (P∩Q)'?

**Answer Details**

In set theory, the symbol ∩ denotes the intersection of two sets, meaning the set of elements that are in both sets. Therefore, P∩Q denotes the set of elements that are in both P and Q, which is {2}. The complement of a set A, denoted by A', is the set of elements that are not in A but are in the universal set U. Therefore, (P∩Q)' denotes the set of elements that are in U but are not in P∩Q, which is {1, 3, 4}. Thus, the correct answer is: (1, 3, 4).

Write as a single fraction \(\frac{1}{1 - x} + \frac{2}{1 + x}\)

**Answer Details**

To add the fractions \(\frac{1}{1-x}\) and \(\frac{2}{1+x}\), we need to have a common denominator. We can obtain this by multiplying the first fraction by \((1+x)/(1+x)\) and the second fraction by \((1-x)/(1-x)\). This gives us: $$ \frac{1}{1-x} \cdot \frac{1+x}{1+x} + \frac{2}{1+x} \cdot \frac{1-x}{1-x} = \frac{1+x}{1-x^2} + \frac{2(1-x)}{1-x^2} $$ Combining the two fractions gives us: $$ \frac{1+x+2(1-x)}{1-x^2} = \frac{3-x}{1-x^2} $$ Therefore, the single fraction is \(\boxed{\frac{3-x}{1-x^2}}\).

If a worker is retrenched, what is the probability that he is a plumber or plasterer.

**Answer Details**

To calculate the probability that a retrenched worker is a plumber or plasterer, we need to first find the total number of workers in the company, and then find the number of workers who are plumbers or plasterers. The total number of workers in the company is: 24 (Carpenters) + 27 (Labourers) + 12 (Plumbers) + 15 (Plasterers) + 9 (Painters) + 3 (Messengers) + 18 (Bricklayers) = 108 The number of workers who are plumbers or plasterers is: 12 (Plumbers) + 15 (Plasterers) = 27 Therefore, the probability that a retrenched worker is a plumber or plasterer is: 27 (number of plumbers and plasterers) / 108 (total number of workers) = 1/4 So the correct answer is option D: 1/4.
