(b) Mambo bought 3 exercise books and 5 pens for a total of Ksh 165. 1f Mambo had bought 2 exercise books and 4 pens, he would have spent Ksh 45 less. Taking x to represent the price of an exercise book and y to represent the price of a pen:
(i) Form two equations to represent the above information. (ii) Use matrix method to find the price of an exercise book and that of a pen. (iii) A teacher of a class of 36 students bought 2 exercise books and 1 pen for each student. Calculate the total amount of money the teacher paid for the books and pens. Form 3 Mathematics
(a) Given that the matrix
Find A^{1} the inverse of A (b) Kimtai bought 200 bags of sugar and 300 bags of rice for a total of Kshs. 850,000. Buya bought 90 bags of sugar and 120 bags of rice for a total of Kshs. 360,000. If the price of a bag of sugar is Kshs x and that of rice is Kshs. Y, (i) Form two equations to represent the information above (ii) Use the matrix A^{1} to find the prices of one bag of each item. (c) Kali bought 225 bags of sugar and 360 bags of rice. He was given a total discount of Kshs. 33, 300. If the discount on the price of a bag of rice was 2%, calculate the percentage discount on the price of a bag of sugar. Form 4 Mathematics

Two shopkeepers, Juma and Wanjiku bought some items from a wholesaler. Juma bought 18 loaves of bread, 40 packets of milk and 5 bars of soap while Wanjiku bought 15 loaves of bread, 30 packets of milk and 6 bars of soap. The prices of a loaf of bread, a packet of milk and a bar of soap were Ksh 45, Ksh 50 and Ksh 150 respectively.
(a) Represent: (i) the number of items bought by Juma and Wanjiku using a 2 x 3 matrix. (ii) the prices of the items bought using a 3 x 1 matrix. (b) Use the matrices in (a) above to determine the total expenditure incurred by each person and hence the difference in their expenditure. c) Juma and wanjiku also bought rice and sugar. Juma bought 36 kgs of rice and 23 kgs of sugar and paid Ksh 8160. Wanjiku bought 50 kg of rice and 32 kg of sugar and paid kshs 11340. Use the matrix method to determine the price of one kilogram of rice and one kilogram of sugar Form 4 MathematicsForm 4 Mathematics
A trader bought 2 cows and 9 goats for a total of Ksh 98, 200. If she had bought 3 cows and 4 goats she would have spent Ksh 2,200 less.
a) Form two equations to represent the above information. b) Use matrix method to determine the cost of a cow and that of a goat. c) The trader later sold the animals she had bought making a profit of 30% per cow and 40% per goat. i. Calculate the total amount of money she received. ii. Determine, correct to 4 significant figures, the percentage profit the trader made from the sale of the animals Form 4 Mathematics
