Hi everyone,

These are just the answers. I'll to post worked solutions later. Sorry for the delay. There's now a rule which says that teachers can get the papers 2 hours after starting. Last year it was 30 minutes.

Anyway ... for the record ...

Section I
1. A
2. D
3. B
4. C
5. B
6. B
7. D
8. C
9. C
10. C
11. A
12. B
13. D
14. A
15. A
16. C
17. D
18. D
19. B
20. C
21. B
22. B

Section II
Question 23
(a) 4ab/3
(b) (i) 19*C
(ii) February
(iii) May, June, July, August, September
(c) (i) Systematic sample, something like every 5th student in order on the roll. Can also be a straight random sample, like names out of a hat. Can also be a stratified sample based on number of students in each year group, then a systematic or random sample from each year group.
(ii) Mean is 7.275 hours per week (using class centres). Mean class is 5-9 hours per week.
(d) (i) $6
(ii) 4 kg or 7 kg
(iii) Weights more that 4 kg, up to and including 6 kg, and weights more than 7 kg.
(iv) $1.50 per kg

Question 24
(a) Vertical axis does not start at 0, pictures change in three dimensions instead of just one.
(b) (i) 70*
(ii) 109 cm
(c) Lovely box plot, Min = 140, Q1 = 145, Median = 150, Q3 = 170, Max = 190
(d) (i) 567 L
(ii) 30 cm

Question 25
(a) (i) 6
(ii) 1/3
(iii) 2/3
(b) (i) 29 days
(ii) $8.61
(c) (i) 1/60
(ii) 1/5370
(d) Martha's effective interest rate is 6.76% p.a. so she gets the better deal.

Question 26
(a) (i) Lovely diagram
(ii) 53 m
(b) (i) Lovely net - probably best is to have four lots of a triangle on top of a rectangle next to each other across the page.
(ii) 252 m2
(c) (i) 98
(ii) 43/100
(iii) 28
(d) 17 h 30 min

Question 27
(a) (i) $130 000 over 30 years
(ii) $45964.80
(b) (i) y-intercept exists when height = 0 cm, but this will never occur. No person ever has a height of 0 cm.
(ii) George's feet should be 3 cm longer than Harry's
(iii) For this data, correlation coefficient should be positive rather than negative. Correlation coefficients only range from -1 to 1 so r = -1.2 is not possible.
(c) (i) $24000
(ii) $7593.75
(iii) Graph - Straight line from $30000 to $24000 after 3 years, then curve down to $7593.75 after 7 years

Question 28
(a) (i) 4 combinations: 1 x $2, 1 x 50c; 2 x $1, 1 x 50c; 1 x $1, 3 x 50c; 5 x 50c
(ii) 6/55
(iii) $(2x + y + 0.5z)
(b) (i) $12
(ii) 3500 vehicles, daily income $17 500
(iii) v = 6000 – 500d, or d = 12 – (v/500)
(iv) Anne's statement is incorrect. Maximum daily income is $18 000 when the toll is set at $6 per vehicle.

----------

Worked solutions attached ... finally!

"(b) (i) 28 days"

Shouldn't this be 29? If not, whoo I got it right! But I only got 28 in the exam because I thought there were 30 days in May, but there are 31. It also says interest is charged on the day of transaction, which is now giving me 29.

im sure you didn't let your school down, be positive :)

If you get a result of say 70 or something for this exam, does that become your HSC mark, or does it still get influence by how the state does and how your class does?

Thanks for posting the answers
