All the measurements in the following diagram are given in centimetres(a) Find the perimeter of this letter F (b) Find the area of this letter F 2. The FAB of a number is obtained by multiplying the number by all the wholenumbers less than or equal to it down to one.So FAB 3 = 6 because 3 x 2 x 1 = 6(a) Work out FAB 5 (b) If FAB x = 720, what is the value of x ? (c) What is FAB 11 divided by FAB 9? (d) If FAB 10 = 3,628,800; what is FAB 9? 3. Cheadle Construction uses metal beams, like the one below, in buildings to support walls and ceilings.The beams can be placed in one of two ways so the end of the beam is in either Position 1 or Position 2The height and width of a beam (in cms) determines the size of the greatest load (in kgs) the beam can support, according to the following formulaLoad = 10 x height x height x widthSo if the height is 4cm and the width is 6cm, the greatest load is given byL = 10 x 4 x 4 x 6 = 960kg(a) What is the greatest load a beam can support when itlies in position 1? (b) What is the difference in the loads between thetwo positions? The weight of a wall means that a beam in the wall is needed to support a load of 4860kg.(c) If the width of the beam had to be 6cm, what height ofbeam would a builder have to use? 4. The Code Club at Bletchley Park School were taking a break from theirnormal activities to devise some codes of their own. One of the apprenticecode makers came up with the following system for listing circles and circlesinside circles, using only brackets and the number l.(a) Give the codes for (b) Draw the picture for the following code 5. A festival in Platt Fields attracted a huge crowd and all the people attendingbrought food with them to share out. Some people brought bread with them,others brought fish while the remainder brought fruit in the form of apples.Everyone agreed that they would share their food with each other according to thefollowing rulesTwo loaves of bread could be swapped for one fishand one loaf could be swapped for three apples(a) Oliver brought two fish and firstly swapped them forloaves of bread. Then he decided to change the loavesfor apples.How many apples did he get? (b) How many loaves could Irfan have for three fishand twelve apples? (c) Aidan wanted four fish to go with each loaf, how manyloaves and fish could he exchange for 54 apples? 6. In a skate-boarding competition competitors do a series of tricks whichjudges score as follows:-Super scores 5 points Good scores 3 points Poor scores 2 points After a few tricks the scores are put up on a board with the competitorsin order of their total score. Unfortunately it started to rain and some ofthe figures were then washed out.Fill in all the missing numbers on the board so that the judges have a completeset of scores. 7. You are given that 27 x 351 = 9477Use this information to answer the following questions(a) 9477 ÷ 351 (b) 2.7 x 3.51 (c) 947.7 ÷ 270 (d) 54 x 351 8. If the differences between each pair of consecutive terms of a sequence aretaken, and then the differences in this new sequence are taken, and so on,the numbers may turn out to be the same.For example for the sequence 1 4 9 16 25The first differences are 3 5 7 9And the second differences are 2 2 2As the second differences are the same, we say that the original sequence is a “sequence of order 2”(a) Fill in the gaps for this sequence of order 23 1 5 5 5 (b) Fill in the gaps for this sequence of order 3 12 30 7 3 9. In the game of flog, a player has to try to get a ball in a hole in as few shots as possible. The target number of shots for each hole is 5 . The player is awarded a number of points according to how many shots he took:If David plays 3 holes and scores 3, 3 and 4, his total points score will be 5 because his points for each hole would be as follows 2 + 2 + 1 = 5But if John’s scores were 5, 7 and 6 on the same three holes, his total points score will be -3 because his points for each hole would be 0 + (-2) + (-1) = -3The winner is the player with the highest total number of points at the end of the game.(a) What would the total points score be if a player took thefollowing number of shots on successive holes:i) If Rodger took 6, 6, 6, 5 and 5 ii) If Nigel took 2, 5, 7, 4 and 7 (b) Howard played four holes and scored 4, 1, 5, x. His totalpoints score was 3. What is the value of x, the number ofstrokes that Howard took on the fourth hole? (c) Rachel played six holes and scored 7, 2, 6, 6, 2, y. Her totalpoints score was 3. What is the value of y, the number ofstrokes that Rachel took on the sixth hole? (d) What is the maximum score that a player can get from playing:i) 5 holes? ii) 6 holes if he scores a 6 and two 7s on his first three holes? (e) The target number of shots for each hole is changed from 5 to T.Tim played 6 holes and his number of shots on each hole was5, 5, 3, 3, 2, 4. He scored 2 points. What is the value of T, thetarget number? 10. The distance all the way round the outside of my bicycle wheel is known as thecircumference. It is about three times the distance across the middle of the wheel, known as the diameter.So if Andrew has a wheel with diameter 50 centimetres, its circumference would beabout 150cm or 1.5 metres and it would take 100 turns of the wheel to travel adistance of 150m and 1000 turns to travel 1.5 kilometres.Using this approximation that Circumference = 3 x diameter(a) How many metres would Andrew travel in 60 turnsof the wheel? (b) How many turns of the wheel would it take himto cover 600m? Andrew enters a road race, the distance for which is 75km(c) How many turns of his front wheel does this race take? Andrew’s great-great-grandfather took part in the same race overa hundred years ago, but the large wheel on his penny-farthingbicycle was 2 metres across.(d) How many turns of this large wheel were requiredto complete the race? (e) What fraction of Andrew’s number of turns was hisgreat-great-grandfathers number? (f) Give a reason why this is. 11. The Yummy Jam Company makes jam for a wide range of shops and supermarkets.The cost of a jar of jam is made up by adding the costs of the jam, the jar and the lid.SoTotal cost of a jar of jam = Cost of the jar + Cost of the lid + Cost of the jamAt present, the company calculates that the cost of the jam is 20p for every 100g(a) For a small jar, containing 200g of jam, the lid costs 10pand the jar 50p. What is the total cost of the jar of jam? (b) A medium jar contains 350g of jam and the medium jarcosts 60p. If the total cost is £1.55, what is the cost ofthe lid for the medium jar of jam. (c) A large jar of jam contains 500g of jam and the total costis £3.00. If the jar costs four times as much as the lid,what does the jar cost? (d) A catering jar with a lid costing 65p and a jarcosting £2 has a total cost of £4.65. What weightof jam does the catering jar contain? 12.A point is described by its coordinates, eg point B on the diagram has coordinates (9,8).This is not the same as (8,9). Point A has coordinates (0,0).To move from one point to another on the graph you can travel by K-steps or by T-steps.A K-step moves you 1 place to the right and 2 places upA T-step moves you 3 places to the right and 1 place up.(a) Starting from point A, what would your coordinatesbe after a K-step followed by a T-step? (b) It is possible to move from point A to point Bby combining some K-steps and some T-steps.Write down how many K-steps and T-steps areneeded. (c) To get from point C (which is not shown on thediagram) to point B you need to take one K-stepand two T-steps. Write down the coordinates of thepoint C. A U -step is the reverse of a T-step. So a U-step movesyou 3 places left and 1 place down.(d) Starting from point B, and then doing a U-step, a K-stepand a T-step, you finish up at a point D (not shown).Write down the coordinates of point D.
