the event "a student takes Biology". It is known that
P(C) = 0.4, P(B  C) = 0.6, P(B  C′) = 0.5.

function 2π
y = a + b cos k t , where a, b and k are constants. The water is at a maximum depth of 14.3 m at midnight and noon, and is at a minimum depth of
10.3 m at 06:00 and at 18:00.

(Total 4 marks) 351. Portable telephones are first sold in the country Cellmania in 1990. During 1990, the number of
units sold is 160. In 1991, the number of units sold is 240 and in 1992, the number of units sold
is 360.
In 1993 it was noticed that the annual sales formed a geometric sequence with first term 160,
the 2nd and 3rd terms being 240 and 360 respectively.
(a) What is the common ratio of this sequence?
(1) Assume that this trend in sales continues. 243 (b) How many units will be sold during 2002?
(3) (c) In what year does the number of units sold first exceed 5000?
(4) Between 1990 and 1992, the total number of units sold is 760.
(d) What is the total number of units sold between 1990 and 2002?
(2) During this period, the total population of Cellmania remains approximately 80 000.
(e) Use this information to suggest a reason why the geometric growth in sales would not
continue.

Speed v
v ≤ 60 0 60 < v ≤ 70 7 70 < v ≤ 80 25 80 < v ≤ 90 63 90 < v ≤ 100 70 100 < v ≤ 110 71 110 < v ≤ 120 39 120 < v ≤ 130 20 130 < v ≤ 140 5 v > 140
(a) Number of cars 0 Calculate an estimate of the mean speed of the cars.
(2) 244 (b) The following table gives some of the cumulative frequencies for the information above.
Speed v Cumulative frequency v ≤ 60 0 v ≤ 70 7 v ≤ 80 32 v ≤ 90 95 v ≤ 100 a v ≤ 110 236 v ≤ 120 b v ≤ 130 295 v ≤ 140 300 (i) Write down the values of a and b. (ii) On graph paper, construct a cumulative frequency curve to represent this
information. Use a scale of 1 cm for 10 km h–1 on the horizontal axis and a scale of
1 cm for 20 cars on the vertical axis.
