Calculators are permitted, provided they are non-programmable and without graphic displays. Do not open this booklet until instructed to do so. The paper consists of 10 questions, each worth 10 marks. Parts of each question can be of two types. SHORT ANSWER parts are worth 2 marks each (questions 1-2) or 3 marks each (questions 3-7). FULL SOLUTION parts are worth the remainder of the 10 marks for the question. Instructions for SHORT ANSWER parts 1. SHORT ANSWER parts are indicated like this: 2. Enter the answer in the appropriate box in the answer booklet. For these questions, full marks will be given for a correct answer which is placed in the box. Part marks will be awarded only if relevant work is shown in the space provided in the answer booklet. Instructions for FULL SOLUTION parts 1. FULL SOLUTION parts are indicated like this: 2. Finished solutions must be written in the appropriate location in the answer booklet. Rough work should be done separately. If you require extra pages for your finished solutions, foolscap will be supplied by your supervising teacher. Insert these pages into your answer booklet. 3. Marks are awarded for completeness, clarity, and style of presentation. A correct solution poorly presented will not earn full marks. NOTE: At the completion of the contest, insert the information sheet inside the answer booklet.

The graph of y = m x passes through the points (2, 5) and (5, n) . What is the value of mn ? Jane bought 100 shares of stock at $10.00 per share. When the shares increased to a value of $N each, she made a charitable donation of all the shares to the Euclid Foundation. She received a tax refund of 60% on the total value of her donation. However, she had to pay a tax of 20% on the increase in the value of the stock. Determine the value of N if the difference between her tax refund and the tax paid was $1000. n – 3? Consider the sequence t1 = 1, t2 = –1 and tn = ? t where n ≥ 3. What is the value ? n – 1? n – 2 of t1998 ?
