### Independent School Maths 11+ Demo

This demo contains answers, solutions and explanations to three questions from a 2008 North London Independent Girls’ School Consortium Group 1 maths paper.

If a and b are whole numbers, then a 🙂 b means (b x b) ÷ (a + 1)

So for example, 2 🙂 6 = (6 x 6) ÷ (2 + 1) = 36 ÷ 3 = 12

a) Find 1 🙂 10

b) Find (3 🙂 4) 🙂 5

c) If 6 🙂 y = 7, what is the value of y?

A and B are neighbours as they are next to each other in the alphabet.

B and C are also neighbours.

C and D are neighbours, D and E are neighbours.

The five letters have to be written down in some other order so that no neighbours are next to each other (in any order).

For example, A C E D B is not allowed because the neighbours D and E are next to each other.

a) If we start with A there are only two ways of writing the five letters with no neighbours next to each other. The first one is done for you. Complete the other way.

Answer 1: A C E B D

Answer 2: A D __ __ __

b) Now start with the letter B. There are three ways of writing the five letters with no neighbours next to each other. The first one is done for you. Complete the other two ways.

Answer 1: B D A C E

Answer 2: B D __ __ __

Answer 3: B E __ __ __

c) In total, how many ways are there of arranging the letters

A B C D E, so that none are next to their neighbours?
