A box contains 35 red discs and 5 black discs. A disc is selected at random and its colour noted. The disc is then replaced in the box. (a) In eight such selections, what is the probability that a black disc is selected (i) exactly once? (3) (ii) at least once? (3) (b) The process of selecting and replacing is carried out 400 times. What is the expected number of black discs that would be drawn? (2) (Total 8 marks) 26 25. When the function f (x) = 6x4 + 11x3 – 22x2 + ax + 6 is divided by (x + 1) the remainder is –20. Find the value of a. Working: Answers: ………………………………………….. (Total 4 marks) 26. A bag contains 2 red balls, 3 blue balls and 4 green balls. A ball is chosen at random from the bag and is not replaced. A second ball is chosen. Find the probability of choosing one green ball and one blue ball in any order. Working: Answers: ………………………………………….. (Total 4 marks) 27 27. The second term of an arithmetic sequence is 7. The sum of the first four terms of the arithmetic sequence is 12. Find the first term, a, and the common difference, d, of the sequence.
