√ {( x 2 – 16 x + 80) ( x 2 + 100)} , 0 ≤ x ≤ 15. 210 (e) Consider the equation f (x) = 1.
(i) Explain, in terms of the position of the points O, A, and P, why this
equation has a solution. (ii) Find the exact solution to the equation.

(Total 16 marks) 301. Intelligence Quotient (IQ) in a certain population is normally distributed with a mean of 100
and a standard deviation of 15.
(a) What percentage of the population has an IQ between 90 and 125?
(2) (b) If two persons are chosen at random from the population, what is the probability that
both have an IQ greater than 125?
(3) (c) The mean IQ of a random group of 25 persons suffering from a certain brain disorder
was found to be 95.2. Is this sufﬁcient evidence, at the 0.05 level of signiﬁcance, that
people suffering from the disorder have, on average, a lower IQ than the entire
population? State your null hypothesis and your alternative hypothesis, and explain your
reasoning.
