training
(b) the week when her time was
11.5secs
3. Use your equation and substitute
T = 11.5
(b)(i) If t = 11.5 then
becomes
T = -¼ W + 15
-¼ W + 15 = 11.5
(-15) (-15)
-¼ W = -3.5 x (–4)
W = 14
Reach a time of 11.5sec after 14 weeks.

1. Find gradient and note intercept
of T axis.
(a)
m = (y2 – y1) 10 - 15

(x2 – x1)
20 - 0
To find the equation of a
line from the graph:
Must Learn:
y = mx + c
Intercept at 15
Equation is
T = -¼ W + 15
gradient

So you need to find these!!

5. Calculate SIQR then compare
remember bigger SIQR means
more variation (spread) in data.
(c) For above sample
SIQR = (52 - 49)  2 = 1.5
In a sample where the SIQR is 2.5
the data is distributed more widely
than or not as clustered as the
above data
The semi-interquartile range is a
measure of the range of the
“middle” 50%.
S.I.R. = 1 (Q3 - Q1)
2
It is a measure of how
spread-out and so how
“consistent” or “reliable”
the data is.
Remember: when asked to
compare data always consider
average and spread.

etc
eg starting with 3 & 7, next four terms are 10, 17, 27 & 44.
(a) If the first two terms of such a sequence are P and Q then find
expressions for the next 4 terms in their simplest form.
(b) If the 5th & 6th terms are 8 and 11 respectively then write down

Simultaneous Equations : Question 4
A Fibonacci Sequence is formed as follows…….
Start with two terms
add first two to obtain 3rd
add 2nd & 3rd to obtain 4th
add 3rd & 4th to obtain 5th
etc
eg starting with 3 & 7, next four terms are 10, 17, 27 & 44.

1. Write down expressions using

(a)
First term = P
& second term = Q
3rd term = P + Q
For problems in context it is
often useful to do a simple
numerical example before
attempting the algebraic
problem.
Fibonacci Sequence:
4th term = Q + (P + Q) = P + 2Q
3, 7, 10, 17, 27, 44, ……
5th term = (P + Q) + (P + 2Q)
P
= 2P + 3Q
6th term = (P + 2Q) + (2P + 3Q)
= 3P + 5Q
