Question 2:
Car X travels 60 km in 45 minutes. Car Y travels 72 km in 1 h 20 min. Find
(a) The average speed of car X
(b) The average speed of car Y
(c) The ratio of average speeds of cars X and Y

Question 4:
Alcohol and water are mixed in the ratio 1:4 by volume. If the volume of the solution is 600cm^3
(a) Find the volume of alcohol in the solution
(b) Find the volume of water in the solution
(c) how much alcohol must be added to the solution so that the ratio of alcohol to water in the solution becomes 1:3 by volume?

Question 6:
(a) Simplify each of the following ratios
(i) a : b = 1 1/2 : 2 2/5 (ii) b : c = 0.105 : 0.350
(b) Find the ratio a : b : c using the data in (a)

1. Mr Johari for question 4, when water is mixed with alcohol, the volume is lower then its individual initial volume.
So when 50cm^3 of water + 50cm^3 of alcohol, the total volume is not 100cm^3 but 90+cm^3
