PART B: Please show all of your work for this part of the assessment. Be sure to attempt all
questions because marks will be given for partial answers. ( 3 points each)
39. Pierre drives 75 km/h in winter. If he drives
for 2 h and 20 minutes at this speed, what distance
will he travel? Show all work.
40. Use a model of you choice to show how to
find: (+4) x (-2). Write a sentence to explain your
model.
2 h 20 min = (2 x 60 + 20) min = 140 min
Use double-sided counters.
The white side of the counters are positive.
This statement can be interpreted as
“Put on 4 sets of (-2).”
Use equivalent rates:
75 km = 15 km = 5 km = 2.5 km = 175 km
60 min
12 min
4 min
2 min
140 min
OR Use a unit rate.
75 km/60 min = 1.25 km/ min
140 min x 1.25 km/min = 175 km
This makes a set of (-8)
41. Draw an equilateral triangle using FG as one
of its sides. Describe your method. Be sure to
state what tools you used.
F
G
Students can use
Bullseye or compass to create 3 equal sides.
Protractor and ruler to make base angles of 60
degrees.
Ruler and protractor to make perpendicular
bisector and a point equidistant from F and G.
42. Describe one or more transformations that
would move the white shape on top of the shaded
shape.
EITHER
Reflect the white pre-image through the vertical
line. Then take the resulting image and translate it
[0, -2]
OR
Translate the white pre-image [0, -2].
Then take the resulting image and reflect it
through the vertical line.
43. Mr. Smith has 10 math students . When he gave back his Math test, he found the following:
Mean: 72%
Mode: 65%
Later Mr. Smith found an error in the answer key
and decided to increase every student’s grade in
the class by 5%.
A) How did this affect the mean, median, and
the mode?
All three measures of central tendency increased
by 5 %.
Median: 65%
B) Create a set of ten marks that will fit the
mean, median and mode before the correction
was made. (The lowest mark was 53% before
Many possible solutions. Students should use the
extreme, the mode and the fact that the sum must
be 10 x the mean = 720.
One possibility
53, 65, 65, 65, 65, 65, 85, 85, 85, 87
44. Amanda wanted a pair of soccer shoes that sold regularly for \$125.00. She waited until they
were put on sale at a 30% discount. What total must she pay if she buys them on sale and the HST
is 13%?
Discount = 30% of \$125.00
= 0.3 x \$125.00
= \$37.50
Sale Price: \$125.00 - \$37.50 = \$87.50
HST = 13% of \$87.50
= 0.13 x \$87.50
= \$11.375 or \$11.38
Total = \$87.50 + \$11.38 = \$ 98.88
PART C: 6 points each. Show all steps here. Points will be given for partial answers.
45. John is making a pattern from 1 cm cubes.
A) Draw the next three sketches in his pattern.
B) Write an equation that relates the number of cubes used to the diagram number and use your
equation to find what diagram number requires 96 cubes.
Diagram 1,
Diagram 2,
Diagram 3,
Diagram 4
Diagram 5
Diagram 6
B) Use drawings
I see a blank square that is enclosed by cubes along each of its sides and then 4 corner cubes
Each time the diagram number increases, the length of the blank square increases by 1 and
four extra cubes must be added to enclose the centre square.
This means that the number of cubes needed is 4 times the diagram number plus 4 more cubes to
fill in the corners. Equation: c = 4d + 4
OR Construct a table.
d 1 2 3 4 5
c 8 12 16 20 24
I notice that the number of cubes used increases by 4 for each increase in diagram number so this
tells me that the equation will have a multiply by 4 term.
c = 4n + 4 works for all the sections of the table
For 96 cubes,
c = 4d + 4
96 = 4d + 4
96 - 4 = 4d + 4 -4
92= 4d
92= 4d
4
4
23 = d
The 23rd diagram requires 96 cubes.
46. Mary likes playing games of chance. She bets \$0.25 only if the probability of winning is greater
than 50%. If a player wins when the arrows on both spinners land on Red, should she bet on this
