2.
1. monthly taxable pay;
15% of monthly salary = 15/100 x 20000
= kshs.3000
Monthly pay = Kshs.(20000 + 3000 − 700)
= Kshs. 22300
In Kenya pounds = 22300/20
= KE 1115
2. Total tax payable (Gross tax)
1 − 342_________ 342x2 = Kshs.684
343 − 684 _______ 342 x3=Kshs.1026
685 − 1026 ______ 342 x4= Kshs.1368
1027 − 1368 _____ 89x5 = Kshs.445
Total tax = Kshs.3523
3. Net tax
= Gross tax – relief
= Kshs.(3523 – 600) = Kshs.2923
4. Net pay;
= Kshs.20000 – (2923 + 2100 + 200 + 2/100 x 20000)
= Kshs. (20000 – 5623) = Kshs.14377
3. 6 month depreciation rate = 8%
Number of periods = 8
400,000 (1 – 0.08)8 = 205288
4. Mid ordinate
Area = 1.2 (6.2 + 4.3 + 2.6)
= 15.72
5.

6. Log (x+5) = log(4)/(x+2)
x + 5 = 4/(x + 2)
(x+5) (x+2) = 4
x2+ 2x + 5X + 10 = 4
x2+ 7x + 6 = 0
x2+ 6x + x + 6 =0
x(x+6) + 1(x+6) = 0
(x +1) (x +6) = 0
x = -1 x = -6
7. a = 100
r = 200 = 2
100
a (rn -1) Sn
r - 1
100 (2n – 1) 3,100
2 – 1
2n – 1 > 31
2n >32
2n >25
n >5
n = 6
1. 2      3       5         7
2      32     52       72
3      23     53       73
5      25     35       75
7      27     37       57
2. P(E) = 4/16
= ¼
8.  x2 + y2 – 6x = 3 – 4y
x2– 6x + (-6/2)2 + y2 + 4y + (4/2)2 = 3 + (-6/2)2 + (4/2)2
(x – 3)2 (y + 2)2 = 3 + 9 = 4
(x – 3)2 (y + 2)2 = 16
C (3, -2)
Gradient y = 7 - -2 = 3
∆x     6 – 3
9.  A = P(1 + r/100 )n
= 10000 (1 + 4/100)6
= 10000(1.04)6
= 12653.19 (12,653)
