WAEC Further Mathematics Past Questions and Answers

Further Mathematics is very easy to pass in one sitting if the right process is followed. One of the secrets to scoring high in WAEC Further Mathematics is to ensure that you practice with questions of previous years and any question that is difficult, read on the topic of the question emanates from.

Past questions are very important for any examination because it gives you a preview of what the examination would look like and some questions are even repeated in some years so it is advisable that you get past questions on the previous years for any subject and start practicing ahead. Getting the past question for Further Mathematics might be very tough as it is scarce however, we were able to get some questions that you can use to practice ahead of the examination.

The further mathematics examinations consist of objectives and theory but this article would provide some objective questions below:

WAEC Further Mathematics Objectives Sample

These are some of the few questions that one can practice ahead of the commencement of the WAEC examination and those who would write Further Mathematics must ensure that they practise intensively before the examination commences.

WAEC Further Mathematics Theory Sample Questions

The theory section is also known as Paper 2 and her candidates should ensure that they provide working for each question they are answering because the marker would not only be looking at the answer but also at the steps followed to arrive at the answer.

1.Find the coordinates of the points which divided the line joining (7,-5) and (-2,7)externally in the ratio 3:2

b.Without using calculators or mathematical tables, evaluate 2/1-sqrt(2) – 2/2+sqrt(2) leaving the answer in the form p + qsqrt(n) where p,q,n are integers.

2.How many terms of the series -3 -1 +1 …… add up to 165?

3.Three forces 10N, 14N, and 16N act on a particle and keep it in equilibrium. Find the angle between the forces 10N and 16N.

4.A uniform beam, WX of length 90cm and weight 50N are suspended on a pivot, 35cm from W. It is kept in equilibrium by means of forces T and 20N applied at Y and Z respectively |WX| = 10cm and |XZ| = 10cm, find the value of T.
