Question 1

(a) p x 12 = 37.7cm

(b)

12 x

  130

;

 

 

 

  100

 

 

 

12 +

 12 x

 130

= 15.6cm

 

 

 

 100

 

-----------------------------------------
Question 2

(a) For example, 2.23m can be measured: p normally give to 2 decimal places
(b) 1st is too accurate: cannot be measured. 2nd is not accurate: not near enough to 7m

-----------------------------------------
Question 3

(a) 40 + 40 + 50 + 70 = 200
(b) i) 40 x 40 = 1600m2
ii) (40 x 30) 2 = 600m2

-----------------------------------------
Question 4

(a) Radius is 2.8cm. 2.8 x 10 = 28km
(b) x '(a)'2 = 2463 km2

-----------------------------------------
Question 5
A = r2 = x 35 x 35 = 3846.5 (if = 3.14), 3850 (if = 22 7), 3848.4 (if = button)
70 x 70 = (4900) '4900' - '3850'
A = 1050cm2

-----------------------------------------
Question 6

(a) Trapezium

(b) 5.3 x 1.2 + x 0.9 x 5.3

OR (1.2 + 2.1) x 5.3

Area = 8.745 m2

-----------------------------------------
Question 7

(a) x 0.65 x 0.65 = 1.33m2
(b) D = 5 = 1.59m

-----------------------------------------
Question 8

(a) 4 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 11cm2
(b) i) 0.5 x x 10 (= 15.7)
'15.7' + 10 = 25.7cm
ii) 0.5 x x 5 x 5 = 39.3cm2

Notes:
(a) M1 for splitting shape
A1 cao for 11
(b) M1 for 0.5 x p x 10 or 15.7 seen
M1 (dep) for + 10
A1 cao for 25.7 or better
M1 for 0.5 x p x 5 x 5
A1 cao for 39.3 or better

-----------------------------------------
Question 9

Various methods
Answer = 37m2

Notes:
M1 division into rectangles or square tiles (could be implied from working, or shown on the diagram)
M1 l x b (at least once, or implied from working)
Eg for M2 sight of 10, 27 or 25, 12 if shape not shown divided
A1 37 cao
B1 (indep) for m2

-----------------------------------------
Question 10

(Area of circle =) 102 (oe)
= 100p (oe)
(Area of triangle =) x 12 x 16
= 96
(Shaded area =) 102 - ( x 12 x 16)
Answer = 218cm2

Notes:
M1
A1 cao (accept 314 or better)
M1 (implied if later work correct)
A1 cao
M1 dep on at least one of the two previous M1's gained.
A1 cao (accept uncorrected)
