Question 1
[Maximum mark: 6]
Greg has saved $2000$ British pounds (GBP) over the last six months. He decided to deposit his savings in a bank which offers a nominal annual interest rate of $\text{\(8\)\hspace{0.05em}\%}$, compounded monthly, for two years.

Calculate the total amount of interest Greg would earn over the two years. Give your answer correct to two decimal places. [3]
Greg would earn the same amount of interest, compounded semiannually, for two years if he deposits his savings in a second bank.
 Calculate the nominal annual interest rate the second bank
offers. [3]

Question 6
[Maximum mark: 7]
The velocity, $v\hspace{0.15em}\text{m}\hspace{0.15em}\text{s}^{1}$, at time $t$ seconds, of a particle moving in a straight line is given by
$v=\dfrac{(t^21)\,\mathrm{sin}\hspace{0.15em}t}{2}\,$,
for $0 \leq t \leq 2$.

Determine when the particle changes direction for the first time. [2]

Question 7
[Maximum mark: 12]
The following table shows the total revenue, $y$, in Australian dollars (AUD), $\text{obtained}$ daily during the first week of January $2020$, by Peppy's Pizza $\text{restaurant}$ and the number of guests, $x$, served.


Calculate the Pearson's productmoment correlation coefficient, $r$, for this data.

Comment on the result. [3]


Write down the equation of the regression line $y$ on $x$. [1]

Use the line of the regression to estimate the revenue of serving $70$ guests. Give your answer correct to the nearest AUD. [2]
The daily maintenance cost for the restaurant is $300$ AUD. Additionally, the cost of serving one guest is $5$ AUD.

Determine if the restaurant expects to make a profit when serving $50$ guests on a $\text{particular}$ day. [2]


Find an expression for the profit of the restaurant when serving $x$ guests on a particular day.

Find the least number of guests required to be served to result in a profit for the day. [4]

Question 8
[Maximum mark: 18]
A cannonball is fired from the top of a tower. The rate of change of the height, $h$, of the cannonball above the ground is modelled by
where $h$ is in metres and $t$ is the time, in seconds, since the moment the cannonball was fired.
 Determine the time $t$ at which the cannonball reached its maximum height. [2]
After one second, the cannonball is 26 metres above the ground.


Find an expression for $h(t)$, the height of the cannonball above the ground at time $t$.

Hence, determine the maximum height reached by the cannonball. [5]


Write down the height of the tower. [1]

Calculate the height of the cannonball $4$ seconds after it was fired. [2]
The cannonball hits its target on the ground $n$ seconds after it was fired.

Find the value of $n$. [2]

Determine the total time the cannonball was above the height of the tower.[3]
A second cannonball is fired from exactly halfway up the tower, with the same projectile motion as the first cannonball.
 Given that both cannonballs land at the same time, determine the length of time between the first cannonball and the second cannonball being fired. [3]

Question 9
[Maximum mark: 15]
A physicist is studying the motion of two separate particles moving in a straight line. She measures the displacement of each particle from a fixed origin over the course of 10 seconds.
The physicist found that the displacement of particle $A$, $s_A$ cm, at time $t$ seconds can be modelled by the function $s_A(t)=7t+9$, where $0 \leq t \leq 10$.
The physicist found that the displacement of particle $B$, $s_B$ cm, at time $t$ seconds can be modelled by the function $s_B(t)=\mathrm{cos}(3t+5)+8t+4$.

Use the physicist's models to find the initial displacement of

Particle $A$;

Particle $B$ correct to three significant figures. [3]


Find the values of $t$ when $s_A(t)=s_B(t)$. [3]

For $t>6$, prove that particle $B$ was always further away from the fixed origin than particle $A$. [3]

For $0 \leq t \leq 10$, find the total amount of time that the velocity of particle $A$ was greater than the velocity of particle $B$. [6]
