DIRECTIONS for Questions 3 and 4: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. In an examination, there are 100 questions divided into three groups A, B and C such that each group contains at least one question. Each question in group A carries 1 mark, each question in group B carries 2 marks and each question in group C carries 3 marks. It is known that the questions in group A together carry at least 60% of the total marks. DIRECTIONS for Questions 3 and 4: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.

We have 2 poles 5 m and 7 m height ropes are connected from

top of one to tthe bottem of another find the intersection

height of those poles.

Answer

of one to bottom of other. at what heightthe two wires will

cross

We will use algebra and an x-y coordinate axis to solve this

problem. Let the pole of 5 m be located at the origin, so

the two ends of that pole are at (0,0) and (0,5). Let the

pole of 7 m be located on the x-axis at a distance of a to

the right of the first pole, so the two ends of that pole

are at (a, 0) and (a,7). The problem does not state the

distance between the poles, so we let that equal an unknown

constant "a" for now. We will find out later that the value

of "a" is irrelevant.

So we want to draw two lines, one from the base of one to

the top of the other and vice versa.

Line 1: Points (0,0) and (a,7)

Slope of line 1: m = 7/a

Intercept of line 1: b = 0

Equation of line 1: y = (7/a) x

Line 2: Points (0,5) and (a,0)

Slope of line 2: m=-5/a

Intercept of line 2: b = 5

Equation of line 2: y = (-5/a)x + 5

The point where these lines meet is the place where the

wires cross!

Solve equation 1 for x:

x = (a/7) y

Substitute this into equation 2:

y = (-5/a) (a/7) y + 5

Notice that a cancels out!

y = (-5/7)y + 5

(12/7) y = 5

12y = 35

y = 35/12 = 2.912
