Unformatted text preview: Total 19 marks) 673. Carlos drives to work every morning. He records the times taken, in minutes, to complete the
journey over a 10day period. The times are as follows:
32.6 30.9 35.8 34.3 36.3 31.9 33.2 32.7 31.3 32.8 Assuming that these times form a random sample from a normal population, calculate
(a) unbiased estimates of the mean and variance of this population;
(3) (b) a 90 % confidence interval for the mean.

term. Their performance was classified as “Distinction”, “Pass” or “Fail”. The numbers of male
and female students in each category are given in the table below.
Distinction Pass Fail Male 26 75 12 Female 28 42 10 The head of the mathematics department wishes to investigate whether or not there is any
association between the classification obtained in the examination and gender. (a) State the null hypothesis.
(1) (b) Calculate the six expected frequencies under the null hypothesis.
(4) (c) Calculate the value of χ2.

(Total 7 marks) 676. The difference, A – B, of two sets A and B is defined as the set of all elements of A which do
not belong to B.
(a) Show by means of a Venn diagram that A – B = A ∩ B′.
(1) (b) Using set algebra, prove that A – (B ∪ C) = (A – B) ∩ (A – C).

(4) (b) By considering powers of 7, identify the equivalence classes.
(4) (c) Find the value of 7503 (modulo 10).
(1)
(Total 9 marks) 678. Let S be the set of all (2 × 2) nonsingular matrices each of whose elements is either 0 or 1.
Two matrices belonging to S are 1 1
0 1 1 0 and 0 1 . (a) Write down the other four members of S.
(4) 454 (b) You are given that S forms a group under matrix multiplication, when the elements of the
matrix product are calculated modulo 2.
(i) Find the order of all the members of S whose determinant is negative. (ii) Hence find a subgroup of S of order 3.

that a * b = b * a.
(Total 6 marks) 680. (a) Define the following terms.
(i) A bipartite graph. (ii) An isomorphism between two graphs, M and N.
(4) (b) Prove that an isomorphism between two graphs maps a cycle of one graph into a cycle of
the other graph.
