Jean says the heaviest bag weighs 23 kg. She is wrong. Explain why. The heaviest bag weighs 29kg 18) b) Write down the median weight. 17 c) Work out the interquartile range of the weights. 23 – 10 = 13 18) There are 240 bags on the plane. d) Work out the number of bags with a weight of 10 kg or less. 25% x 240 = 60 19)a) Toby invested £4500 for 2 years in a savings account. He was paid 4% per annum compound interest. How much did Toby have in his savings account after 2 years? 4% of 4500 = 180 After 1 year = 4500 + 180 = 4680 4% of 4680 = 187.20 After 2 years = 4680 + 187.20 = £4867.20 19)b) Jaspir invested £2400 for n years in a savings account. He was paid 7.5% per annum compound interest. At the end of the n years he had £3445.51 in the savings account.

(3n + 1)2 – (3n –1)2 = (9n2 + 3n + 3n + 1) – (9n2 – 3n – 3n + 1) = 9n2 + 6n + 1 – 9n2 + 6n – 1 = 12n 12n is a multiple of 4 or 12n = 4n x 3 23)a) AB = -a + b 23)b) P is the point on AB such that AP:PB = 3:2.

Phil takes at random two sweets from the bag. Work out the probability that the sweets will not be the same colour. P(not same colour) = 1 – P(same colour) P(same colour) = (5/20 x 4/19) + (7/20 x 6/19) + (8/20 x 7/19) = 0.311 P(not same colour) = 1 – 0.3105 = 0.689
