1. the reading of a thermometer is 37.5度 with a percentage error of 2/2/3%.

(a) find the max. absolute error.

(b) (i) find the upper and lower limits of the actual reading.

(ii) Hence,is it possible that the actual reading is 38.8度?Explain your answer.

30. A picture frame is in the shape of a rectangle.All the measurements are shown in the figure and are correct to the nearest cm.Find the max. and min. areas of the picture frame.

    we cannot do no.30 because you have no figure

    no.1 I am thinking....

    1(a)Let the max absolute error be x



    the max absolute error is 1

    1(b)(i)The upper limits=38.5

    The lower limits=36.5


    (something like that......I am not sure....If it is wrong sorry)

    The max absolute error



    The upper limit numbers



    The max area of picture frame



    The lower limit



    The min area of picture frame

    (a) Let x be the maximum error

    x/37.5 x 100% = 2/2/3%

    x/37.5 = 8/300

    x = 8/300 x 37.5

    x = 1

    So, absolute error = 1

    (bi) the upper limit



    the lower limit



    (bii) the range of the possible actual value (say x cm) is

    36.5℃ ≦ x℃<38.5℃

    ∴the actual reading can not be 38.8℃

    30) 什麼資料也沒有!!

    P.S. 一定對!:
