Question 1 (10 mins)

  1. A sector has radius length of 4.5 cm and subtends and angle of 45 .
    1. Find in terms of , the area of the sector.

Area = r2

360

    • (4:5)2 60 360
    • 278 cm2
  1. Calculate the total length of the perimeter of the sector. Give your answer correct to one decimal place.

Perimeter = length of sector + 2 radii

=

(2)( )(4:5)

360

+ 4:5 + 4:5

=

13:7 cm

(b) A solid cone has a slant height of p

65 cm and base radius of 4 cm.

  1. Find the perpendicular height of the cone.

p 2

h2 = 65 (4)2

  • 65 16
  • 49

h = 7 cm

  1. Find the volume of the cone in , correct to two decimal places, taking = 3:142.

Volume = 13 r2h

  • 13 (4)2(7)

Key: 41

  1. How many eggs were tested in total? 36 eggs were tested in total.
  2. What was the range of weights for each farm

Farm 1 = 24

Farm 2 = 31

  1. One of the farms tested was completely free range and organic. Based on the data supplied which farm do you think it was? Give a reason for your answer.

Farm 2 was free range. The eggs produced on this farm are generally bigger than Farm 1
