let the actual time for 5km/hr be t
for 4km/hr=30mint + t
4km/hr=0.5 + t
distance = 4(0.5+t)
=2*4t
for 5km/hr, time= t
distance =5t
1+4t=5t
t=2hrs

Sin x = 5/13
Using pythagoras rule
M^2 = 13^2 – 5^2 (^ means Raise to power)
M^2 = 169 – 25
M ^2 = 144
M = √144
M = 12
Hence:
Cos x – 2sin x / 2tan x
12/13 – 2(5/13) / 2(5/12)
‎= 12/13 – 10/23 / 5/6
FIND LCM
= 12 – 10/13 / 5/6
= 12/65

10bi)
Considering < LMB
/MB/^2. = 12^2 – 9.6^2
/MB/^2 = 51.84
/MB/ = √51.84
/MB/ = 7.2m
From < AML
/LA/^2 = 2.8^2 + 9.6^2
/LA/ ^2 = 100
/LA/ = √100
/LA/ = 10m

10bii)
Let the angle be. θ
From Tanθ = 9.6/2.8
Tan θ = 3.4288
θ = Tan^-1 ( 3.4288)

32+4y=66
4y=66-32
4y=34
y=34/4
y=17/2
y=8^1/2

13b)
given DABC
AB=(^-4/6) and AC =(3/^-8)
so AP =1/2(^-4/6)
AP=(^-2/3)
hence
CP = CA + AP
CP= -(3/^8)+(^-2/3)

# CP = (^-5/11)

In Table Form / Tabular form
X = 1,2,3,4,5
F = m+2, m-1, 2m-3, m+5, 3m-4 = 8m – 1‎
Fx = m+2, 2m-2, 6m-9, 4m+20, 15m-20 = 28m – 9‎
But x̄ ( this symbol (x̄) means X bar)
= 75/23‎
ΣFx / Σf = 75/23 = 28m – 9/8m-1
75/23 = 28m – 9/8m – 1
Cross multiply
75(8m-1) = 23(28m-9)
600m – 75 = 644m – 207
-75 + 207 = 644m – 600m
132 = 44m
M = 3

3y^2-5y+2=0
y^2 – 5/3y + 2/3=0
y^2-5/3y=-2/3
y^2-5/3y+(^-5/6)^2=(-^5/6)^2-2/3
(y-5/6)^2=25/36-2/3
(y-5/6)^2=25/-24/36
(y-5/6)^2=1/36
(y-5/6)=+sqr1/36
y=5/6+1/6
y=5+1/6 or 5-1/6
y=6/6 or 2/3
y=1 or 2/3

12b)
given
M N = [2,3 1,4]
hence
[1,4 2,3] * [m,n x,y] =[2,3 1,4]
[m+2n, x*2y]
[4m+3n, 4x+5y] = [2,3, 1,4]
therefore
m+2n=2——(i)
4m+3n=3——(ii)
from ——(i)
m=2-2n
4(2-2n)+3n=3
8-8n+3n=3
8-5n=3
8-3=5n
5=5n
n=1
hence
m=2-2(1)
M=0
also
x+2y=1——(i)
4x+3y=4——(ii)
from ——(iii)
x=1-2y
4(1-2y)+3y=4
4-8y+3y=4
y=0
therefore x=1-2(0)
x=1

# this N=[i i]

20 = 31.2 sin 0/2
sin0/2 = 20/31.2
sin0/2 = 0.6410
0/2 = sin -1 (0.6410)
0/2 = 39.87
0 = 2 (39.87)
0 = 79.74
