(b) If she walks at a speed of 8 km/h, how long does it take her to get to school from home? END OF SECTION B.NOW GO BACK AND CHECK YOUR ANSWERS SECTION C.1. a. Mila adds odd numbers together and writes down her results as follows: 1 = 1 = 1²1 + 3 = 4 = 2²1 + 3 + 5 = 9 = 3²i. Write down the next three lines of this pattern: ii. Using this pattern, write down the line which contains 169 at the centre. b. Mila then adds different odd numbers and puts her results in a table again:1 = 1 = 1³3 + 5 = 8 = 2³7 + 9 + 11 = 27 = 3³i. Write down the next three lines of this pattern: ii. Using this pattern, how many numbers do you need to add together to get:... = 1000 = ... c. Using your answers from parts a. and b. find three numbers A,B and C such that A − B = Cand A² − B² = C³Answer: A = B = C = 2. The symbol ϕ represents a mathematical rule.The rule for ϕ is “add the two numbers and then multiply their sum by the second number”.For example, 2 ϕ 3 = (2+3)×3 = 5×3= 15Work out:a. 2 ϕ 6= b. ½ ϕ 3= C. ¼ ϕ ½ = d. If 6 ϕ m=91, what positive number must m be? Show all your working. e. If p ϕ p=72, what number must p be? Show all your working. f. Explain why x ϕ y is not the same as y ϕ x. 3. The diagram below shows a road network connecting the villages A to H. The numbers between the letters show how far apart the villages are in miles. A route connects two villages by travelling along the straight lines.An example of a route from E to D is EF – FC – CD.a) What is the shortest route between A and E, and how long is it? b) What is the shortest route between H and C, and how long is it? c) What is the shortest route between A and H, and how long is it? 4. Eliza is calculating 32×37.She has constructed this number pattern: 32 ×37 16 × 74 8 × 148 × 296 × × Fill in the missing numbers. a. Explain how the pattern is made. b. Using a similar method, work out 27 × 37. 27 × 37 × × × c. Adapt this method to work out 972 ÷ 36. × × × × × 5. Tilly decides to count using a clock.She starts counting from 1 in the normal way, so: 1, 2, 3, 4......But when she gets to 12, the count goes back to 1, so she counts:...8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3...So, for example, using this method of counting, 4 + 9 = 1 and 10 + 5 = 3. Similarly, 3×5=3 and 2×13=2.a. Using this counting method, complete the following:i. 3 + 4 = ii. 7 + 8 = iii. 9 + 11 = iv. 7 × 8 = v. 9 × 11 = b. Using this counting method, can you find two different positive numbers n and m such that n² = m² c. Using this method, can you find two different numbers p and q such that p³ =q³?
