A space ship travels at 193 metres per second for 5 minutes 7 seconds. Use approximations to decide whether the distance travelled will be nearer 1 to km, 10 km, 60 km or 600 km. (You must show your working.) 16. Tom only has Smarties left, one each of Red, Green, Orange and Yellow.If he chooses Smarties, list all the possible combinations of colours. 17. In a bowl there are 6 apples, 3 plums and 4 peaches. If I choose one piece of fruitat random, what is the probability.(a) That it is not a plum? (b) That it is banana? 18. (a) Find the area of this shape. (b) Find the perimeter. 19. In the sequence 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 11........ each number after the second is the sum of the two previous numbers of the sequence. What is the 10th number of the sequence ? 20. The length of a rectangle is twice its width. Its area is 98 cm². Find its length and width. 21. In this question the diagrams are not drawn accurately, so the angles cannot be found by measuring with a protractor.The angles of a triangle add up to 180°.(a) In this triangle angle A is the same as angle B, and angle C is twice angle B. Workout each of the three angles. The angles round a point add up to 360°(b) In the diagram below, one angle is 90° and the other three are equal to each other.Work out the missing angles. 22. (a) Plot the following points (2, 4) , (-3, 1) , (-2, 3) Join them to form a triangle. (b) Draw another triangle joined onto this one so that the combined shape has oneline of symmetry. 23. (a) List the prime numbers less than 20. (b) A factor tree can be used to write a number as the product of prime factors.For example:- So 90 = 2 × 5 × 3 × 3By drawing a factor tree, or using any other method you know, write as the productof prime factors. (c) Find the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of 24 and 36 24. An approximate method of deciding how much sleep a young person needs is tosubtract their age from 33 and divide by 2.(a) How much sleep does an eleven year old need? (b) How old is a person who needs 5 hours sleep? (c) How old is the person who needs no sleep at all? (If the formula is correct!) (d) Does it make sense to use the formula for older people? Give a reason for youranswer. 25. Nine bus stops are equally spaced along a bus route. The distance from the first to the third is 600 metres. How far is it from the first to the last? 26. When asked how many chickens and cows he had on his farm Mr Brown refused to answer directly, but he did say that the total number of heads was and the total number of legs was. How many of each was there? 27. Inside the large square (of “size 16”) a smaller square of “size 9” is shown shaded.(a) How many different “size 9” squares are there inside the large square? (b) How many different “size 4” squares are there inside the “size 16” square? (c) How many different squares are there in total, taking into account all sizes andpositions? Time is Up!
