The following table shows sales of three separate magazines. There are two versions, the normal version which is 300 pages, and the deluxe edition which is 400 pages. The normal edition costs £8.99 whereas the deluxe edition costs £13.99

Book | Magazine 1 | Magazine 2 | Magazine 3 |

Normal | 36 | 41 | 61 |

Deluxe Edition (+100 pages) | 29 | 25 | 27 |

1. Which of the following statements is true?

0

0

**The correct answer is C.**

**Magazine 3 made more revenue through its normal edition than its deluxe edition**.

Normal Edition

61 x 8.99 = £548.39 (Could estimate by doing 60 x 10 = £600)

Deluxe Edition

27 x 13.99 = £377.73 (Could estimate by doing 30 x 14 = £420)

**There were more sales of deluxe edition than normal copies **

**Deluxe: **29 + 25 + 27 = 81

**Normal: **36 + 41 + 61 = 138

**Magazine 1 was more popular than Magazine 2 overall**

**Magazine 1** 36 + 29 = 65

**Magazine 2** 41 + 25 = 66

**The deluxe edition was found to be more cost effective by its customers**

**No evidence of general consensus of public **

**No** – Whilst the Employee had higher sales, this does not translate to more profit.

**No** – We do not have data to describe sales across the whole year.

**Yes** – In June, July, and August, the total sales for Employee A is 345 whereas for Employee B they are 340.

**No** – Across the period, Employee A sold 500 and Employee B sold 515 and so they didn’t sell the same number.

**Yes** – Across the period, Employee A sold 500 and Employee B sold 515 and so they sold 1015 in total.

**Yes** – They would be purchasing standard tickets. 20 x 2 + 8 x 2 = 56 which is £6 more than the £50 paid for a standard family ticket.

**No** – They both pay £20.

**No** – For both Standard and On The Door tickets the cost of child tickets is less than half that of an adult.

**No** – There is more than one possibility for reaching £24 such as two seniors purchasing early bird tickets.

**Yes** – Initially the student would have paid £12. They then would have had to purchase an adult on the door ticket for £25, paying £37 in total.

**No** – The highest scoring month shown is July but we do not know about the other months.

**No** – They scored 100 in September which is the same as 25 + 75 (the scores in March and May combined).

A company produces two cars – Model X and Model T. One Model T takes 50 hours to complete. One Model X takes 20 hours to make. The table shows some combinations which utilise the maximum available hours of labour.. Time is the only limiting factor.

Model T | Model X |

1000 | 0 |

500 | 1250 |

200 | 2000 |

100 | 2250 |

5. Tick ‘Yes’ if the conclusion does follow. Tick ‘No’ if the conclusion does not follow.

**No** – The maximum number of hours is 50,000 (50 x 1000). 50000/20 = 250.

**Yes** – The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 2100 x 20 + 160 x 50 = 50,000.

**Yes** – The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 2000 x 20 + 150 x 50 = 47,500. This leaves 2500 hours spare.

**No** – The maximum number of hours is 50,000. 750 x 50 = 37500, 50000-37500 = 12500. 12500/20 = 625 so fewer Model X are produced.

**No** – For the maximum of Model X, 1 model T would be made. Therefore (50000-50)/20 = 2497.5. As you can’t have half a car, you round down giving 2497.

**Yes** – From the table, 0 people did not eat apple pie.

**Yes** – From the table, the option which has the highest percentage of those became ill and the lowest number of people who were ill without eating it, the soup is the most likely source.

**No** – From the table, we are told that 20 ate chicken curry and so this is two-thirds of the group.

**No** – From the table, we cannot ascertain the total number who fell ill.

**No** – We’ve seen before that 100% of people ate apple pie whereas 66% of people ate the chicken curry and so the Apple Pie is more popular.

**No** – Both Plant 3 and Plant 5 grow blue berries at a rate of 4 a month so it could be plant 3.

Civil servants are promoted depending on their performance rating. A department rates all its civil servants between 1 and 4 for their bonus allocation with 4 as highest and 1 as lowest. Civil servants are only eligible for promotion after two years of service in the same job and if they got a 3 or a 4 in their most recent performance review. All civil servants receive a £1k bonus if they receive a 3 or above in their performance review. The following table shows the employment record of some individuals. Years of service refers to their current role.

Name | Performance rating | Years of service | Promoted? |

Dan | 3 | 2 | Y |

Jenna | 1 | 1.5 | N |

Tim | 4 | 2 | Y |

Tom | 3 | 1.5 | N |

Marion | 1 | 3 | Y |

A group of artists collectively takes commissions. Each oil painting takes 20 hours and each watercolour takes 15. They are only limited by time.

9. Which of the following orders can they not fulfil in a month?

0

0

**The correct answer is B.**

They have 200 x 15 hours which is 3000.

148 x 20 + 3 x 15 = 3005 and so they cannot fulfil it within a month.

where does 200 came from?

from the first row. it's easiest to use in the calculation because it's the simplest one as you're just doing 200*15 and not adding anything as the oil paintings column is 0 for that one. (I think)

Jonny’s photos have an introductory offer. For all new customers, first orders are reduced by 40%. On every order there is a flat delivery charge of £3.50. The standard prices are as follows:

6×4 print | 0.10 |

5×3 print | 0.05 |

Poster | 5.00 |

3x Fridge Magnet | 6.00 |

Pack of 5 Coasters | 10.00 |

Cushion | 12.00 |

10. Dan is a new customer, which of the following statements is true?

**The correct answer is C.**

The reduced price is 0.6 x 10 = £6. This divided by 5 gives £1.20

**No** – It is £35 more expensive rather than 35% more expensive.

**Yes** – This is selecting the relevant information from the table 150 + 20 – (100 + 25) = 45.

**Yes** – This is selecting the relevant information from the table 150 + 20 – (100 + 25) = 45.

**No** – Whilst the prices are very different, this is not a valid conclusion which we can draw.

**Yes** – If all the prices in the table are added together, Jack Louis is cheaper – this can be done by inspection as some of the House of Frazier are significantly more.
