Question # 1
The mass of a group of pupils in a school
has a normal distribution with a mean of
48 kg and a standard deviation of 7 kg.
Given that a pupil is chosen at random,
find the probability that his mass is
more than 62 kg.
Question # 2
The volume of juice in a bottle produced
by a factory has a normal distribution
with a mean of 1000 ml and a standard
deviation of 50 ml. Given a bottle of
juice is chosen at random, find the
probability that the volume of water is
between 970 ml and 1020 ml.

Apples and oranges are sold in packets at a fruit stall. Each packet of
apples has 3 fruits and each packet of oranges has 4 fruits. Each day, x
packets of apples and y packets of oranges are sold .
The sale of fruit per day is based on the following constraints:
I : The minimum number of packets of oranges sold is 30 .
II : The total number of packets of apples and oranges sold is
at least 120.
III : The total number of apples and oranges sold does not
exceed 600.
(a) Write three inequalities, other than and x0, y0 , which satisfy all the
above constraints. [3 marks]
(b) By using a scale of 2 cm to 20 packets on both axes, draw and shade
the region R, that satisfies all of the conditions above. [2 marks]
(c) Using your graph from (b), to find
(i) the maximum packets of oranges sold each day .
(ii) the maximum profit obtained when a packet of apples and a packet of
oranges brings a profit of RM0.50 and RM0.60 respectively. [5 marks]
