• Question 3

Let C be a circle with centre P0 and AB be a diameter of C. Suppose P1 is the mid-point of the line segment P0B, P2 is the mid-point of the line segment P1B and so on. Let C1, C2, C3, ... be circles with diameters P0P1, P1P2, P2P3 ... respectively. Suppose the circles C1, C2, C3, ... are all shaded. The ratio of the area of the unshaded portion of C to that of the original circle C is:

• Question 5

• Question 6

A piece of paper is in the shape of a right angled triangle and is cut along a line that is parallel to the hypotenuse, leaving a smaller triangle. There was a 35% reduction in the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle. If the area of the original triangle was 34 square inches before the cut, what is the area (in square inches) of the smaller triangle?
