**Question 4**
**Report**

The mean of 20 observations in an experiment is 4, lf the observed largest value is 23, find the mean of the remaining observations.

**Answer Details**

To find the mean of the remaining observations, we need to subtract the largest value from the sum of all the observations and then divide it by the number of observations minus one. Number of observations = 20 Mean of 20 observations = 4 Largest value = 23 Sum of all observations = Mean x Number of observations = 4 x 20 = 80 Sum of remaining observations = Sum of all observations - Largest value = 80 - 23 = 57 Number of remaining observations = Number of observations - 1 = 20 - 1 = 19 Mean of remaining observations = Sum of remaining observations / Number of remaining observations = 57 / 19 = 3 Therefore, the mean of the remaining observations is 3. Hence, the correct option is (b) 3.

Solve the following simultaneous equations: x+ y = 3/2; x - y = 5/2 and use your result to find the value of 2y + x

**Answer Details**

To solve the simultaneous equations x + y = 3/2 and x - y = 5/2, we can use the method of elimination. First, we need to eliminate y. We can do this by adding the two equations: (x + y) + (x - y) = 3/2 + 5/2 Simplifying, we get: 2x = 4 Dividing both sides by 2, we get: x = 2 Now that we have solved for x, we can substitute this value into one of the original equations to solve for y. Let's use the first equation: 2 + y = 3/2 Subtracting 2 from both sides, we get: y = -1/2 So the solution to the simultaneous equations is x = 2 and y = -1/2. To find the value of 2y + x, we can simply substitute the values we found: 2y + x = 2(-1/2) + 2 = 1 Therefore, the answer is 1.

**Report**

In the diagram above; O is the centre of the circle and |BD| = |DC|. If ?DCB = 35°, find ?BAO.

**Answer Details**

We can start by using the fact that the angle at the center of the circle is twice the angle at the circumference that subtends the same arc. Therefore, since |BD| = |DC|, then angle CBD = angle BDC. Also, angle COB is equal to 2*angle BDC because it subtends the same arc as angle BDC. Therefore, angle COB = 2*angle CBD. Since triangle AOB is isosceles (|OA| = |OB|), then angle BAO = angle BOA. Using the fact that the angles in a triangle sum to 180 degrees, we can write: angle BAO + angle BOA + angle COB = 180 Substituting in the expressions we derived earlier, we get: angle BAO + angle BAO + 2*angle CBD = 180 Simplifying, we get: 2*angle BAO + 2*angle CBD = 180 angle BAO + angle CBD = 90 Now we can use the fact that angle DCB = 35 degrees and |BD| = |DC| to find angle CBD: angle DCB + angle BDC + angle CBD = 180 35 + 35 + angle CBD = 180 angle CBD = 110 Substituting this value back into the earlier equation, we get: angle BAO + 110 = 90 angle BAO = 90 - 110 = -20 Since angle BAO cannot be negative, we made an error along the way. Double-checking our work, we realize that we made a mistake when substituting in the value for angle COB. It should be equal to 2*angle DCB, not 2*angle BDC. Therefore: angle COB = 2*angle DCB = 2*35 = 70 Substituting this value back into the earlier equation, we get: angle BAO + 70 = 90 angle BAO = 20 Therefore, the answer is 20 degrees.

A water tank of height \(\frac{1}{2}\) m has a square base of side \(1\frac{1}{2}\) m. lf it is filled with water from a water tanker holding 1500 litres, how many litres of water are left in the water tanker? [1000 litres = 1m\(^3\)]

**Answer Details**

The volume of the water tank can be calculated as follows: Volume of tank = Base area x Height = (1.5m x 1.5m) x 0.5m = 1.125 m\(^3\) Since 1000 litres = 1 m\(^3\), the volume of the tank is equivalent to 1,125 litres. Therefore, the amount of water left in the water tanker after filling the tank is: 1500 - 1125 = 375 litres. Hence, the answer is 375 litres.

What is the smaller value of x for which x\(^2\) - 3x + 2= 0?

**Answer Details**

The given equation is a quadratic equation in standard form, which is \(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\), where \(a = 1\), \(b = -3\), and \(c = 2\). We can solve for the roots of the quadratic equation by using the quadratic formula: \[x = \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac}}{2a}\] Substituting the values of \(a\), \(b\), and \(c\) into the formula, we get: \[x = \frac{-(-3) \pm \sqrt{(-3)^2 - 4(1)(2)}}{2(1)}\] \[x = \frac{3 \pm \sqrt{1}}{2}\] Thus, the solutions are: \[x_1 = \frac{3 - 1}{2} = 1 \text{ and } x_2 = \frac{3 + 1}{2} = 2\] Therefore, the smaller value of \(x\) is \(1\). Hence, the answer is 1.

To express a number in standard form, we write it in the form \(a \times 10^b\), where \(1 \leq a < 10\) and \(b\) is an integer. To express 0.000834 in standard form, we need to move the decimal point to the right until we obtain a number between 1 and 10. We have: $$0.000834 = 8.34 \times 10^{-4}$$ Therefore, the answer is (a) 8.34 x 10^{-4}.

**Question 19**
**Report**

If three children shares N10.50 among themselves in ratio 6:7:8, how much is the largest share?

**Answer Details**

To solve this problem, we need to first add up the parts of the ratio, which gives us 6+7+8 = 21. Next, we divide the total amount shared (N10.50) by the sum of the ratio parts (21) to find the value of one part: N10.50 ÷ 21 = N0.50 Now that we know the value of one part, we can find the value of each part of the ratio by multiplying the value of one part by the corresponding number in the ratio: - 6 parts: 6 × N0.50 = N3.00 - 7 parts: 7 × N0.50 = N3.50 - 8 parts: 8 × N0.50 = N4.00 So the largest share is N4.00, which corresponds to the 8 parts of the ratio. Therefore, the correct answer is option (C) N4.00.

Which of the following angles is an exterior angle of a regular polygon?

**Answer Details**

An exterior angle of a polygon is an angle formed by extending one of the sides of the polygon. For a regular polygon, all the exterior angles have the same measure, which can be found by dividing the total sum of the exterior angles (which is always 360 degrees) by the number of sides. In this case, we have a list of angles and we need to determine which one is an exterior angle of a regular polygon. We can start by dividing 360 degrees by each of the answer choices and see if any of the results match the definition of an exterior angle. - 360/95 = 3.789, which is not a whole number and therefore cannot be an exterior angle of a regular polygon. - 360/85 = 4.235, which is not a whole number and therefore cannot be an exterior angle of a regular polygon. - 360/78 = 4.615, which is not a whole number and therefore cannot be an exterior angle of a regular polygon. - 360/75 = 4.8, which is a whole number and therefore could be an exterior angle of a regular polygon. We can confirm this by checking if the sum of this angle and any of the interior angles of a regular polygon add up to 180 degrees. For example, a regular pentagon has interior angles of 108 degrees, and 75 + 108 = 183, which is not 180 degrees. Therefore, 75 degrees is not an exterior angle of a regular pentagon. - 360/72 = 5, which is a whole number and therefore could be an exterior angle of a regular polygon. Again, we can confirm this by checking if the sum of this angle and any of the interior angles of a regular polygon add up to 180 degrees. For example, a regular pentagon has interior angles of 108 degrees, and 72 + 108 = 180 degrees. Therefore, 72 degrees is an exterior angle of a regular pentagon. Therefore, the answer is: 72^{o}.

The diagonals AC and BD of a rhombus ABCD are 16cm and 12cm long respectively. Calculate the area of the rhombus.

**Answer Details**

In a rhombus, the diagonals are perpendicular bisectors of each other and they divide the rhombus into four congruent right-angled triangles. Therefore, each triangle has a base of 6cm and a height of 8cm (half the length of the diagonals). The area of each triangle is given by: Area = 1/2 x base x height = 1/2 x 6cm x 8cm = 24cm^2 Since there are four such triangles in the rhombus, the total area of the rhombus is given by: Area = 4 x 24cm^2 = 96cm^2 Therefore, the area of the rhombus is 96cm^2, which corresponds to the last option.

**Question 26**
**Report**

The angle of a sector of a circle is 108°. If the radius of the circle is 31/2cm, find the perimeter of the sector

**Answer Details**

A sector of a circle is a region bounded by two radii and an arc. The perimeter of a sector is the sum of the arc length and the lengths of the two radii. In this case, we are given that the angle of the sector is 108° and the radius of the circle is 31/2 cm. To find the arc length, we need to know the circumference of the entire circle, which is given by 2πr, where r is the radius of the circle. So, the circumference of the circle is 2π(31/2) cm = 31π cm. The angle of the sector is 108°, which is 108/360 or 3/10 of the entire circle. So, the arc length of the sector is (3/10) × 31π cm = 9.3π cm. The two radii of the sector have length 31/2 cm each. Therefore, the perimeter of the sector is the sum of the arc length and the two radii, which is 9.3π cm + 31/2 cm + 31/2 cm = (9.3π + 31) / 2 cm. This is approximately equal to 13.6 cm. Therefore, the answer is (E) 13 3/5 cm.

In the diagram above. |AB| = 12cm, |AE| = 8cm, |DCl = 9cm and AB||DC. Calculate |EC|

**Answer Details**

In the given diagram, we can see that the two lines AB and DC are parallel. Hence, we can apply the intercept theorem or Thales' theorem which states that if a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides, then it divides those sides proportionally. So, we can use this theorem to find the length of |EC| as follows: First, we can notice that the triangles ABE and DCE are similar since they are both right triangles and share the same angle at E. Therefore, we can set up a proportion between their corresponding sides: \begin{align*} \frac{|EC|}{|DC|} &= \frac{|AE|}{|AB|} \\ \frac{|EC|}{9\text{ cm}} &= \frac{8\text{ cm}}{12\text{ cm}} \\ |EC| &= \frac{8\text{ cm}}{12\text{ cm}} \times 9\text{ cm} \\ |EC| &= 6\text{ cm} \end{align*} Therefore, the length of |EC| is 6cm. Thus, the correct option is (E) 6cm.

In set theory, the union of two sets is a set containing all distinct elements from both sets. Therefore, to find R∪S, we need to combine all the elements in R and S without duplication. R = [2, 4, 6, 7] and S = [1, 2, 4, 8], so combining them without duplication gives us: R∪S = [1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8] Therefore, the correct answer is (a) [1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8].

If \(y \propto \frac{1}{x^2}\) and x = 3 when y = 4, find y when x = 2.

**Answer Details**

If we have that y is proportional to \(\frac{1}{x^2}\), then we can write: y = k\(\frac{1}{x^2}\) where k is a constant of proportionality. To find k, we can use the fact that when x = 3, y = 4: 4 = k\(\frac{1}{3^2}\) Simplifying: k = 36 Now we can use k to find y when x = 2: y = k\(\frac{1}{2^2}\) y = 9 Therefore, the answer is y = 9.

The given expression is undefined when the denominator is equal to zero because division by zero is undefined. Therefore, we need to find the values of x that make the denominator zero. The denominator of the expression is \(x^2 + 4x - 5\). We can factor this quadratic expression as \((x + 5)(x - 1)\). So the expression is undefined when either \(x + 5\) or \(x - 1\) equals zero, since division by zero is undefined. Therefore, the values of x that make the expression undefined are \(x = -5\) or \(x = 1\). So the answer is: - -5 or 1

A cylindrical container, closed at both ends, has a radius of 7cm and height 5cm [Take π = 22/7]

Find the total surface area of the container

**Answer Details**

The total surface area of a closed cylinder consists of the area of its curved surface and the area of its two circular ends. The area of the curved surface of a cylinder is given by 2πrh, where r is the radius of the base and h is the height. The area of each circular end is given by πr^2. In this case, the radius of the cylinder is 7cm and the height is 5cm. So, Area of curved surface = 2πrh = 2 × (22/7) × 7 × 5 = 220cm^2 Area of each circular end = πr^2 = (22/7) × 7^2 = 154cm^2 Total surface area = 2 × area of circular end + area of curved surface = 2 × 154 + 220 = 308 + 220 = 528cm^2 Therefore, the total surface area of the cylinder is 528cm^2. So, the correct option is (D) 528cm^2.
