1. Equations of the lines enclosing the shaded area
x=1
y=0
gradient of the line = We pick any two arbitrary points on the third line (0,3); (3,0)
= 0 − 3/3 − 0 = −3/3 = −1
To find the equation of the line in the format y=mx+c we pick another point (x,y) and pair it with any of the two points earlier chosen
(x − 3)/(y − 0) = − 1
x − 3 = − y
in the form y=mx + c
y= −x + 3
Therefore the inequalities are
x ≥ 1
y ≥ 0
y < −x+3
2. The diagram below shows the graphs of
Y = 3/10 x −3/2 , 5x + 6y = 30 and x = 2
By shading the unwanted region, determine and label the region R that satisfies the three inequalities;
Y
3/10 x -3/2, 5x + 6y 30 and x 2 (2 mks)
L
1 y = 3/10 x -3/2 at (0, 0)
0
2 *

Picking P(0,0)
0
≥ -3/2
L
2  5x + 6y = 30
At (0, 0) 5x + 6y
30
0
30 *
3. 7s + 3t = 2950 ………………….(i) x 5
3s + 5t = 2750 …………………..(ii) x 3
35s + 15t = 14750
(9s + 15t = 8250)/(26s = 6500)
s = 250
t = 2750 − 3(250)/5 = 400
2t + 2s = 2(400) + 2(250)
= shs. 1,300
4. Let the cost of a biro be b
Pencil be p
2b + 5p = 120 x 3
3b + 2p = 114 x 2
6b + 15p = 360
(6b + 4p = 228)/(11p = 132)
P = 121
2b + 60 = 120
2b = 60
b = 30
The cost of 1 biro is 30/=
The cost of 1 pencil is 12/=
5. Let son’s present age be n yrs
Father’s age is 2n yrs
Ten years ago: son’s age →
n −10
Father’s age →
2n − 10
Son’s present age = 30yrs
Father’s present age = 2x 30 = 60yrs
6. 2x + 21 > 15 − 2x
4x 0.6

15 − 2x ≥
x + 6
-3 x ≥ -9

x > -1 ½
⇒ -1 ½ x 3
Values are −1, 0, 1, 2, 3.
7. y = -2x + 4
gradient of h line is ½
Equation (y + 4)/(x + 1) = ½

2y + 8 = x + 1
2y − x + 7 = 0
8. 2s + 3t = 1750
3s + 2t = 1500
4s + 6t = 3500
9s + 6t = 4500
2t = 1500 − 600
t = 450
5s = 1000
s = 200
Shirt = sh 200
Trouser = sh 450
1. Let cost of pencils be x and biro pens to be y
4x + 6y = 66
2x + 5y = 51

4x + 6y = 66
4x + 10y = 102
4y = 96
y = 24
Correct substitution
x = 3
Pencils = shs.9
Biro pens = 3
2. (b) 9p + 3b = 228...(i)
b − y = 4
b = 4 + r ...........(ii)
substituting for b in ..........(i)
p
+ 5p − 288 = 0
p = (-5 ±
√25 − 4 x 1 x -228)/(2 x 1)
P = 13 (to the nearest whole no.)
b= 4+ 13 = 17
9. 3x − 2 (x + 2) = 21
X = 25
Large No = 25 + 2 = 27

product = 25 x 27 = 695
10. x − 20 + 3x = 180oC
4x = 200
x = 50

Attempt to get x by using l+e = 180o
e = (2n-4)90/n
number of sides

11. 5x + 4y = 6160
4(3x + y = 2800
-7x = −5040
x = 720
y = 640
4(720) + 2(640) = 4160
12. 2x + 3y = 390
5x + 2y = 810
15x + 6y = 2430
(4x + 6y = 780)/(11x = 1650)
x = 150
A pair of trouser =sh150
A shirt = sh30
