WAEC Mathematics Essay Questions

Answer any question.
Write your answers on the answer booklet provided.

1. A = {2, 4, 6, 8}, B = {2, 3, 7, 9} and C = {x: 3 < x < 9} are subsets of the universal-set
U = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}. Find
(a) A n(B’nC’);
(b) (AuB) n(BuC).

2. In the diagram above, the points A, B, C and D lie on the circle, centre O. TA and TB are tangents touching the circle at A and B, respectively.
AÔB = 132°, AĈD = 59° and AOC are a straight line.

(a) Find ATB.
(b) Find BDA.(c) Find BDC.
(d) Find OBD.

3 (a) The probability that a malaria patient (M) survives when administered with a newly discovered drug is 0.27 and the probability that a typhoid patient (T) survives when injected with another newly discovered drug is 0.85.  What is the probability that
i. either of the two patients survives?
ii. of two patients survive?
iii. at least one of the two patients survives?
(b) Give your answers correct to 2 significant figures.

4. The frequency distribution of the weight of 100 participants in a high jump competition is as
shown below:

Weight (kg) 20-29 30 – 39 40 – 49 SO – 59 60 – 69 70-79
Number of
participants 10 18 22 25 16 9

(a) Construct the cumulative frequency table.
(b) Draw the cumulative frequency curve.
(c) From the curve, estimate the:
(i)   median;
(ii) semi-interquartile range;
(iii) probability that a participant chosen at random weighs at least 60 kg.

5. Using a ruler and a pair of compasses only:
(a) construct a triangle PQR with /PQ/ = 10cm, ∠QPR= 90° and ∠PQR = 30°;

(b) (i) construct I, the locus of all points equidistant from PR and QR;
(ii) locate M, the point where / intersects with PO,

(c) (i) with M as centre and radius MP, draw a circle;
(ii) calculate the area of the circle correct in one decimal place.
[Take Π= 22/7].

6. A sector of angle 135° is removed from a thin circular metal sheet of radius 40cm. It is then folded with the straight edges, coinciding to form a right circular cone. Calculate the:
(a) base radius of the cone, correct to two decimal places.
(b) the greatest volume of liquid that the cone can hold, leaving your answer correct to the nearest cm3. (Take p = 22/7).

7. (a) P varies directly as Q and inversely as the square of R. If P = 1 when Q = 8 and R = 2, find the value of Q when P = 3 and R = 5.

(b) An aeroplane flies from town A (20oN, 60oE) to town B(20oN, 20oE).
(i) If the journey takes 6 hours, calculate, correct to 3 significant figures, the average speed of the aeroplane.
(ii) If it then flies due north from town B to town C, 420 km away, calculates, correct to the nearest degree, the latitude of town C.
[Take radius from the earth = 6400 km and π = 3.142]

(c) percentage of the part not cleared.

11. (a) Given the Arithmetic Sequence -6, -2, 1,…, 71, find the:
(i) common difference;
(ii) number of terms of the sequence
(b) The difference between the third and first terms of a Geometric Progression (G. P.) is 42. If the fourth term is greater than the second term by 168, find the:
(i) the first term;
(ii) fourth term of the distribution.

12. The table below shows the distribution of marks scored by students in an examination.

Class interval Frequency
60 – 64
65 – 69
70 – 74
