The diagram below shows a piece of abstract art hanging up on Andrew’s bedroom wall. To make this look even more interesting he decides to rotate this painting through 90 degrees clockwise. In the space provided show what the painting will look like in its new position. 20. Every evening Diana has a bath. She turns on the taps and waits patiently for the bath to fill before she turns them off and steps in. At the end of her bath she steps out of the water before pulling out the plug to empty the bath. A graph of the volume of water (measured in litres) plotted against time (measured in minutes) is shown below. How long does she spend in the bath? Work out the number of litres of water that flow into the bath per minute as the bath fills up. Does the bath empty at a faster, slower or the same rate as it fills?Faster, slower or same? 21. Amar (form captain), Brian (vice captain), Charles and Daniel are best friends in the same class at school. They always like to stand next to each other in the lunch queue. On Mondays it is a school rule that the form captain is at the front of the queue followed by the vice captain. There are two ways in which these boys can queue up on a Monday: ABCD and ABDC. On Tuesdays, the form captain must again queue up first but the remaining three boys can follow in any order. There are six ways in which these boys can queue up on a Tuesday. Four of these ways are listed below. Write down the remaining two: ABCD, ABDC, ACBD, ACDB, On Wednesdays there are no restrictions and all four boys can queue up together in any order. In how many ways can this be done? 22. Isolde enjoys making cubes. She first draws out shapes on pieces of cardboard and then folds them along the lines to form a cube. The diagrams below show six attempts. Unfortunately only five of these actually work. Cross out the shape which is impossible. 23. As part of a mathematics project a class is asked to look up the lengths of objects on the internet. These objects are listed in the rectangles below and the measurements are given in the triangles. Unfortunately these objects and measurements have been muddled up. Draw lines on the diagram to match each object with its correct length. 24. In this question you may assume the following exchange rates: 1 British pound (£) = 1.5 American dollars (US$) 1 British pound (£) = 2 New Zealand dollars (NZ$)The price of a hoodie in the London branch of Abergavenny and Filtch is £80. In New York the price is US$90. How much do I save by buying the hoodie in New York? Give your answer both in US dollars and pounds.Saving = US$ and £ My friend Sheila lives in Auckland, New Zealand. She saves US$60 if she buys this hoodie in New York. How much does it cost in New Zealand? Give your answer in New Zealand dollars. NZ$ Work out the exchange rate for converting New Zealand dollars into American dollars: 1 New Zealand dollar (NZ$) = American dollars (US$) 25. Seven children, A, B, C, D, E, F, G take part in a competition. Use the information below to fill in the table: Position Child 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th There are no tied positions D beat A C was the winner If you multiply the positions of A and D you get the position of F A and E are in next to each other in the table. B beat G 26. The average of a set of numbers is worked out by adding the numbers together and then dividing by the number of numbers.Work out the average of:1, 1, 1 1, 1, 4 1, 4, 7 4, 7, 13 Describe, in words, a simple pattern that you notice about these answers: Class 6A go on a Geography trip to Eastbourne and investigate the size of pebbles on the beach. Jonnie picks up seven small pebbles and measures their lengths in millimetres. The lengths of the first six pebbles are: 1, 1, 1, 4, 7, 13Assuming that the pattern that you observed above continues to hold, work out the length of Jonnie’s seventh pebble. 27. Tristan is given six bags of fruit. Bag A contains 2 apples, 4 oranges and 3 pears. Bag B contains 3 apples, 1 orange and 2 pears. Bag C contains 4 apples, 5 oranges and 3 pears. Bag D contains 4 apples, 6 oranges and 4 pears. Bag E contains 6 apples, 4 oranges and 3 pears Bag F contains 7 apples, 7 oranges and 7 pears.He is allowed to choose one of these bags and then pick just one piece of fruit from that bag at random.Which bag should he choose if he is to maximise his chance of picking an apple? Which bag should he choose if he is to minimise his chance of picking a pear? 28. The diagram below shows a sequence of squares drawn on a grid. The coordinates of the centre of square number 1 are (1,1). The coordinates of the centre of square number 2 are (2,3). The first number in the pair is the x-coordinate and the second number is the y-coordinate. Write down the coordinates of the centre of square number 3 square number 4 square number 10 square number 234 The y-coordinate of the centre of one of the squares in this sequence is 2177. Work out the x-coordinate of this square. 29. In the triangles shown below each number is the sum of the two numbers directly underneath it. For example, 26 = 12 + 14 and 5 = 1 + 4. 26 12 14 5 7 7 1 4 3 4 Complete the triangle of numbers: 8 7 1 5 Complete the triangle of numbers: 101 54 12 8 30. The diagram below shows a rectangle, 9 units long, 6 units wide and with parts of non-overlapping circles drawn all over it. The circles all have the same radius and the area of each is 7 square units. Work out the shaded area. Shaded area = square units The diagram below shows a square which is 3 units long with four identical semi-circles drawn on each edge. These semi-circles overlap to create four petals which are shaded on the diagram. The area of each semi-circle is 3.5 square units. Work out the shaded area. Shaded area = square units Time is Up!
