Weight (grams) 105 110 115 Use the graph to estimate
(i) the median; (ii) the upper quartile (that is, the third quartile). Give your answers to the nearest gram.
(4) 207 (d) Let W1, W2, ..., W80 be the individual weights of the packets, and let W be their mean.
What is the value of the sum
(W1 – W ) + (W2 – W ) + (W3 – W ) + . . . + (W79 – W ) + (W80 – W ) ?
(2) (e) One of the 80 packets is selected at random. Given that its weight satisﬁes
85 < W ≤ 110 , ﬁnd the probability that its weight is greater than 100 grams.

A miniature car moves in a straight line, starting at the point (2 , 0).
After t seconds, its position, (x , y) , is given by the vector equation x 2 0 .7 = +t y 0 1 (a) How far from the point (0 , 0) is the car after 2 seconds?
(2) (b) Find the speed of the car.
(2) 208 (c) Obtain the equation of the car’s path in the form ax + by = c.
(2) Another miniature vehicle, a motorcycle, starts at the point (0 , 2), and travels
in a straight line with constant speed. The equation of its path is
y = 0.6x + 2, x ≥ 0. Eventually, the two miniature vehicles collide.
(d) Find the coordinates of the collision point.
(3) (e) If the motorcycle left point (0 , 2) at the same moment the car left point (2 , 0), ﬁnd the
speed of the motorcycle.
