Task 1

A group of students are planning an outing to the local theme park. The theme park requires a ratio of at least 1 adult to 12 students for a group visit. If the students are mix of boys and girls, there must be at least 1 female adult for every 12 girls.

The group of students are:

|Girls |38 |

|Boys |25 |

Calculate the minimum number of male and female adults that need to accompany the student group.

Task 2

The River Thames has a wide variety of water-birds. An environmental group recorded the number of a range of water-birds at the Penton Hook area of the river.

|Type |Number |

|Swan |65 |

|Canada geese |21 |

|Great crested Grebe |15 |

|Mallard duck |30 |

|Graylag goose |3 |

|Coot |12 |

|Grey Heron |1 |

What proportion of the water-bird population recorded are swans? Give your answer as a percentage?

What is the ratio of Mallard ducks to Coots? Give your answer in its simplest form.

Task 3

The recommended maximum slope for an access ramp for wheelchairs is 1 in 12.

An example of a maximum slope for an access ramp is:

The new library has an entrance which is 80cms above ground level. Calculate the horizontal length of the access ramp that must be included as part of the entrance?

Task 4

A garden designer has prepared a diagram of a garden space to be included in a new property.

The designer wants to include the diagram as a scale drawing in a document for the owner. The document will be printed on A4 paper, which has a width of 21cms. To ensure good printing the A4 page must have 2cm with no printing on each side of the page.

_

Calculate the maximum scale that the designer can use to include the diagram in the document. The scale must be rounded to a whole number.
