P

Since P

P

To have Q intersect C, we need to increase the value of r.
Since p is an integer, we increase r by whole number values.

Plotting Q on C for various values of r using the graphing
calculator, we will find that Q will not intersect C for 4 r s ,
but Q will intersect C at 4 points for 5 r > .
Hence, smallest value of p = 5.

Since

4
= divide the population in intervals of 6 in the order in which
the students are numbered (i.e. first interval Students 1 to 6, second
interval Students 7 to 12, last interval students 19 to 24)
Randomly select the first student by
- writing the numbers 1 to 6 on slips of papers, fold them and put them
in a box. Shake the box thoroughly and pick a slip of paper from the
box.
- Use a random number generator, such as using randInt in the TI84
Plus Graphing Calculator as follows:

Let n be the number generated from the random selection. Select the
student numbered n and every 6
th
student after that until a sample of size
4 is formed i.e. the sample is the collection of all students corresponding
to the numbers n, n + 6, n + 12, n + 18.

OR
Randomly select a number between 1 and 24 and pick the student
corresponding to that number as the first student. Then select every 6
th

student after that until a sample of size 4 is obtained. If the first number
chosen is not from 1 to 6, the selection will have to be cycled back to the
front until enough students are obtained.

(a)
(ii)
Divide the population into the strata: girls and boys. The numbers for the
strata are:
Girls Boys

Hence the sample is to consist of

National Junior College Mathematics Department 2012
2012 H2 Maths Revision Package (Solutions) Page 72
Randomly select 3 girls and 1 boy from all the girls and all the boys in the
class respectively to form the sample of size 4.

1
(b)

Stratified sampling is more appropriate because it takes into account
potential differences in opinions between girls and boys, and hence the
sample will be more likely to be representative of the population.

OR

Stratified sampling is more appropriate because if systematic sampling is
used and the students numbered 1, 2 or 3 is selected as the first student,
the resulting sample will contain only girls, which will not be
representative of the population.

OR

Systematic sampling is more appropriate because if stratified sampling is
used, only 1 boy will be selected. This will result in a higher probability of
bias being introduced, and the sample may not be representative of the
population.

r = 0.981

the growing season, x is the independent variable, use the regression line
y on x.

y = 7.41977 + 1.11537x.

As y = 6.52 is within the data range and r = 0.981 is very close to 1,
indicates a strong positive linear relationship between x and y, the
