Ψ is a new mathematical rule which works like this:To work out 2 Ψ 4 add 1 to 2, then multiply by 4, like this: 2 + 1 = 3 3 × 4 = 12So 2 Ψ 4 = 12Similarly 4 Ψ 7 = 35 because 4 + 1 = 5, then 5 x 7 = 35(a) Work out 3 Ψ 8 (b) Work out 5 Ψ 9 (c) If 2 Ψ y = 18, what number does y stand for ? (d) If z Ψ 4 = 36, what number does z stand for ? (e) If p Ψ q = 20, find all the pairs of whole numbers that p and q could be. 23. Plot the following points on the diagram below and join them to form a shape: A(2 , 1), B(-4 , 3) and C(0 , 5) Describe fully the shape ABC. Add an additional point to the diagram so that you form a parallelogram ABCD.Write down the co-ordinate point you have drawn. 24.In order to save time banks weigh bags of coins instead of counting them.The masses in grams of some coins are shown above.(a) If a bag of 2 pence coins weighs 350g, how many coins are there?

A perfect number is one in which all its factors (except the number itself) total to the number. For example 6 = 1 + 2 + 3 is a perfect number since the proper factors of 6 are 1, 2 and 3 and they total to 6. 12 is not a perfect number as its proper factors are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and they total 16.(a) Find one other perfect number between 20 and 30. (b) State whether a prime number can ever be perfect. 28. In a barn there are only horses and people. If there are 12 heads and 34 legs how many horses and how many people are there?Answer: Horses Answer: People 29. How many 3cm cubes can be made by cutting up a block 12 cm by 24 cm by18 cm? 30. Find angles b, x and y in the following diagrams (not to scale):Answer: b = Answer: x = Answer: y = BLANK% 31.The above shows the routes and distances between villages. For example, route ABEC starts at A and finishes at C. It has length 6 + 8 + 4 = 18km(a) What is the length of the shortest route from A to F? (b) I want to visit A, B, C and D. In which order should I visit them if I can start at any of the four villages and wish to make my total journey as short as possible?
