Step 1 – Calculate the time taken for each of the coach journeys that serves breakfast.

Departures: 06:30 and 08:00 take 3 hrs 15 mins; 09:10 and 09:30 departures take 3 hours 20 mins;

10:00 departure takes 3 hours 15 mins

Step 2 – Calculate the total cost for two return tickets

10:00 departure;

2 x £85

Thus the correct answer is, £170

Step 1 – Work backwards from the taxi journey

 

Agent must leave Manchester’s coach/train station by coach/train

 
 

Step 2 – Which coach/train travel option(s) arrives before 12:25/12:35 respectively?

The 09:10 and 09:30 coach departures both arrive too late The 09:20 train departure arrives in time at 11:50 and is cheaper than the 9.00 train

Thus the correct answer is, 09:20 train departure

Step 1 – Calculate the Time taken for the 2 train journeys between London and Manchester

07:50 train: 2 hours 15 mins 10:30 train: 2 hours 25 mins

=

2.250 hours

 

=

2.417 hours

Step 2 – put figures into the formula: Average speed = Distance / Time taken

Average speed = 164 miles / Time taken = miles per hour

 

07:50 train: 164 miles / 2.250 10:30 train: 164 miles / 2.417

=

72.9 mph

=

67.9 mph

Difference between the two

=

72.9 - 67.9

=

5mph

Thus the correct answer is, 5 mph

Step 1 – Calculate the journey times for the train departures with wireless (marked with a “w” in the timetable)

07:50: 2 hours 15 mins 09:00: 2 hours 25 mins 10:05: 2 hours 40 mins

Step 2 - Calculate the journey times for the coach departures that arrive in Manchester before 13:00

06:30: 3 hours 15 mins 08:00: 3 hours 15 mins 09:10: 3 hours 20 mins 09:30: 3 hours 20 mins

Step 3

Single ticket on 07:50 train

=

£65.00

Thus the correct answer is, £65.00

Step 1 – Calculate the saving on the monthly fee

(6 - 5.49) x 12

=

£6.12

Step 2 – Calculate the saving on the mobile calls (same network)

(0.26 - 0.25) x 12 x 50

=

£6.00

Step 3 - Calculate the saving on the mobile calls (other networks)

(0.32 - 0.30) x 12 x 50

=

£12.00

Step 4 – Calculate the saving on the annual fee

59.49 – 54.99

=

£4.50

Step 5 – Sum Step 1 to Step 3

Thus the correct answer is (E), £28.62

Step 2 – Sum the Royale Plan’s allocation for 4 months

300

mins x 4

=

1,200 mins

150

texts x 4

=

600 texts

Step 3 – Sum Steps 1 and 2

1,250 mins + 1,200 mins

=

2,450 mins

1000 texts + 600 texts

=

1,600 texts

Thus the correct answer is (E), 2,450 mins; 1,600 texts

Step 1 – Update the costsThus the correct answer is (E), 2,450 mins; 1,600 texts Standard calls: 24p x 1.2 =

Standard calls: 24p x 1.2

=

28.8p

Mobile calls (same network): 26p x 1.2

=

31.2p

Mobile calls (other networks): 32p x 1.2

=

38.4p

Texts: 11p x 1.2

=

13.2p

Step 2 - Calculate the new costs

Mobile calls (same network): 31.2p x 35

=

£10.92

Mobile calls (other networks): 38.4p x 45

=

£17.28

Texts: 13.2p x 62

=

£8.18

Step 3 – Sum the above

£10.92 + £17.28 + £8.18 = £36.38 = £36 (to the nearest £)

Thus the correct answer is (B), £36

Step 1 – Calculate the number of monthly hours (outside allocation)

52 x 60

=

3,120 mins

 

Step 2 – Subtract the free monthly minutes

3,120 mins – 300 mins

=

2,820 mins chargeable

 

Step 3 – Multiply by 3 (months)

 

2,820 mins x 3

=

8,460 mins

 

Step 4 – Calculate excess charge per call

 

30p – 24p

=

6p

Step 5 - Multiply by 6p excess per call rate

 

8,460 mins x 6p

=

£507.60

 

=

£510 (to the nearest £10)

Thus the correct answer is (E), £510
