a) 45
Fail = 15 boys = 1/4 of the pie or 90 degrees
Therefore, if 1/4 = 15, 3/4 = 45
b) Charlie is incorrect because you do not know how many boys and how many girls there are in Year 7. This is required to work out the answer. There may for example be 24 boys and only 5 girls. This would mean 6 boys fail the test and less than 5 girls fail the test.
a) 8



 If 64 cars in total, then the following equation will be used to calculate the number of red cars
 ^{ 64}/_{1} * ^{45}/_{360. }
 After cross cancellation, this is simplified to:
 64/_{1} * ^{5}/_{40}
 Further cross cancellation:
 8/_{1} * ^{1}/_{1}


b) 3/8
 The key here is to remember that the opposite angles when 2 lines cross, create equal angles
 So given Black and Red are 45º each, this gives 90° in total
 So remaining in the circle is 360 – 90 = 270
 Each angle must therefore be 270/2 = 135
 Every 45 degrees = 1/8th. So 135 = 3/8
a) 2
b) 1
c) 13
1+3+4+2+1+2
a) 30º
 Yellow + Purple is a right angle so is 90º
 Therefore, Yellow is 30º
b) 25%
 100% for the pie chart. Therefore, Red occupies 1/4 of this.
 100/1 * 1/4
c) 90

 ^{180}/_{360} * ^{180}/_{1}
 This is 180 degrees/360 degrees * 180. The equation above can be simplified and you should always do this
 ^{1}/_{1} * ^{90}/_{1}

a) 1/4
Right angle
b) 50%
Exactly half
c) 24
If 6 chose swimming = 25%, then 100% = 6 x 4 = 24
d) 9
If swimming = 6, gymnastics = 3. Therefore, athletics = 12. 12=3
