P = (rk/Q – ms)⅔
P^3/2 = rk/Q – ms
rk/Q = P^3/2 + ms
Q= rk/P^3/2 + ms

When P =3, m=15, s=0.2, k=4 and r=10
Q = rk/p^3/2 + ms = 10(4)/(3)^3/2 + (15)(0.2)

x + 2y/5 = x – 2y
Divide both sides by y
X/y + 2/5 = x/y – 2

5(x/y) – x/y = 2 + 10
4x/y = 12

Let Ms Maureen’s Income = Nx
1/4x = shopping mall
1/3x = at an open market
Hence shopping mall and open market = 1/4x + 1/3x
= 3x + 4x/12 = 7/12x
Ngstudents.com
Hence the remaining amount
= X7/12x = 12x7x/12 =5x/12
Then 2/5(5x/12) = mechanic workshop
= 2x/12 = x/6
Amount left = N225,000
Total expenses
= 7/12x + X/6 + 225000
= Nx
7x+2x+2,700,000/12 =Nx
9x + 2,700,000 = 12x
2,700,000 = 12x – 9x
2,700,000/3 = 3x/3
X = N900,000
(ii) Amount spent on open market = 1/3X
= 1/3 × 900,000
= N300,000

Draw the triangle
(9b)
(i)Using cosine formulae
q² = x² + y² – 2xycosQ
q² = 9² + 5² – 2×9×5cos90°
q² = 81 + 25 – 90 × 0
q² = 106
q = square root 106
q = 10.30 = 10km/h
Distance = 10 × 2 = 20km
Ngstudents.com
(ii)
Using sine formula
y/sin Y = q/sin Q
5/sin Y = 10.30/sin 90°
Sin Y = 5 × sin90°/10.30
Sin Y = 5 × 1/10.30
Sin Y = 0.4854
Y = sin‐¹(0.4854), Y = 29.04
Bearing of cyclist X from y
= 90° + 19.96°
= 109.96° = 110°
