Maths F.2!!!

1. Tim played a game with Jack for several rounds. The winner of

each round scored 4 marks while the loser lost 1 mark. They played

the game for 15 rounds and there was no tie games. If the score of Tim

was less than 30 marks, find the least number of rounds that Jack won.

2. A salesman sells 4 times as many radios as television in a year. If

the number of radios sold must exceed the number of televisions sold by at least 3600 per year in order to make a profit, find the minimum

number of televisions the saleman should sell.

Rating

1.

Tim >= 30 marks

If Tim won 15 and Jack won 0, Tim 15x4 = 60

If Tim won 14 and Jack won 1, Tim 14x4-1 = 55

If Tim won 13 and Jack won 2, Tim 13x4-2 = 50

If Tim won 12 and Jack won 3, Tim 12x4-3 = 45

If Tim won 11 and Jack won 4, Tim 11x4-4 = 40

If Tim won 10 and Jack won 5, Tim 10x4-5 = 35

If Tim won 9 and Jack won 6, Tim 9x4-6 = 30

Tim less than 30 marks

If Tim won 8 and Jack won 7, Tim 8x4-7 = 25

If Tim less than 30 marks, Jack at least won 7 rounds

2. 4 times as many radios as television in a year

4x - x >= 3600

3x >= 3600
