## 1. | GCSE Higher |

The graph of a quadratic function, \(y=f(x)\) is shown drawn accurately in the following diagram. Write down all the integer solutions of \(f(x) \le 0\).

## 2. | GCSE Higher |

Describe the unshaded (white) region by writing down three inequalities.

## 3. | GCSE Higher |

On the grid below indicate the region that satisfies all three of these inequalities.

$$y>-2$$ $$x+y<5$$ $$y-1 \le \frac{x}{2}$$## 4. | GCSE Higher |

A region on a coordinate grid is described by the following three inequalities:

$$x>-2$$ $$x+y<7$$ $$y \ge \frac{x}{3}+2$$By shading the **unwanted** regions show the region on the grid below.

## 5. | GCSE Higher |

By shading the unwanted regions, show the region satisfied by these three inequalities.

$$ y \le x + 3 $$ $$ y> 4-x $$ $$ x < 2.5 $$## 6. | GCSE Higher |

Show that you understand equations and inequalities by answering the following:

(a) Solve \(5x^2=80\)

(b) Solve \(8x + 2 \gt x + 7\)

(c) Write down the largest integer that satisfies \(8x - 2 \lt 25\)

(d) Solve the following pair of equations

$$3x + 5y = 21$$ $$8x - 5y = 1$$## 7. | GCSE Higher |

John times how long it takes him to run around Hazelnut Park each Friday afternoon. The last three weeks his times, rounded to the nearest minute are \(p, q \; \text{and} \; r\).

He notices that \(q\) is 5% more than \(p\) and \(r\) is 5% less than \(q\).

Indicate which of the following statements are true:

(a) \( r \lt p \) and \( r \lt q \)

(b) \( r \gt p \) and \( r \gt q \)

(c) \( r = p \) and \( r \lt q \)

(d) \( p \gt q \) and \( p = r \)

(e) \( p =q \) and \( p \gt r \)
