The Questions are, if possible, to be solved by the aid of no other rules of Arithmetic than the first four of whole Numbers and Fractions. SecTION 1. 1. Show that = 1's. 2. If 56 tenpenny loaves can be got from a quarter of wheat, how many eightpenny loaves will it yield ? SECTION II. 1. What sum will amount to 271. in one year at 5 per cent. ? 2. What is the difference between the interest and discount upon 5001. for 12 years at 5 per cent. ? Section JII. 1. Four men have a sum of money to be divided among them in such a manner that the first shall have tof it, the second t, the third }, and the fourth the remainder, which is 281. What is the sum ? 2. A sum of 8001. is to be paid by instalments as follows: 2001, in 3 months, 2001. in 4 months, 4001. in 6 months. It is determined to pay the whole of this sum at once; after what number of months must the single payment be made, interest being allowed at the rate of 5 per cent. ? SECTION IV. 1. From a rectangular field containing 27 A. 2 r. 21 P. whose shorter side is 8 chains in length, a portion is to be cut off, by a line parallel to that side, containing 11 acres. Where must the division be made ? 2. There is a field in the form of a trapezium, one of the diagonals of which is 65 chains in length, and the perpendiculars upon it from the opposite angles 28 chains and 33.5 chains respectively. What is the area of the field ? Section V. 1. Find the area of a square inscribed in a circle whose radius is 7} inches. 2. What must be the height of a cone whose diameter is 8 inches, that it may contain as much as a sphere of the same diameter ? GEOMETRY AND ALGEBRA. Section 1. Prove that, 1. If at a point in a given straight line two other straight lines on the opposite sides of it make the adjacent angles together equal to two right angles, these two straight lines shall be in one and the same straight line. 2. Any two sides of a triangle are together greater than the third side. SECTION II. 1. To divide a straight line into two such parts that the rectangle of the whole and one of the parts may equal the square of the other part. 2. The angles in the same segment of a circle are equal. SECTION V. 1. There are two numbers whose sum is 96, and of which one is greater than the other by 16. What are the numbers ? 2. How many terms does an arithmetical progression consist of, whose difference is 3, first term 5, and last term 302? 3. From a capital of 50001. yielding 5 per cent. compound interest, a person takes away 4001. yearly. What will the remainder be 10 years hence ? SECTION VI. 1. In what time will the simple interest of 400l. be equal to the discount of 520i., both being calculated at 5 per cent. ? 2. A looking-glass 18 inches by 12 is to be so framed that the area of the frame inay equal that of the glass. What must be the width of the frame? 3. There is a rectangular garden, containing 12,100 square yards, whose length, breadth, and diagonal are in geometrical progression. What are its dimensions ? MECHANICS AND AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. SECTION I. 1. From what depth will an engine of 5-horse power raise 4 tons of coal per hour ? 2. A labourer working with a wheel and axle 8 hours a-day can yield at the rate of 2600 units of work per minute. How much must he charge per ton for raising coals from a depth of 25 fathoms, in order that he may earn 2s. 6d. per day? 3. An engine of 5-horse power raises 30 cwt. of coals per hour from a pit whose depth is 240 fathoms, and at the same time gives motion to a forge-bammer which makes 25 lifts per minute, each lift being 3 feet; it is required to determine the weight of the hammer. |
