# C1 Soloman Paper C question

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Hey.
Im having trouble doing questions (iii) and (iv).

I was able to do part ii and express in the form (x + a)^2 + b
But i dont understand how to get the translation.
I was only able to do part (iv) by differentiation to find the gradient, then find the formula that way.
Thanks

We want to translate to so we basically want the bit in the bracket to change from to .

i.e: if then . What does the translation mean?

For (iv) think about what happens to the tangent.

Zacken help i have no idea what i'm doing either xD

since you already put in the form (x + a)^2 + b i'm seeing the only difference which i'm seeing between the 2 equation is a -6x , not sure what to say for transformation

tbh i did part 4 by differentiation aswell ^-^
See my post above.

Does the f(x) for transformation follow a similar rule for stretches in the axis
Is f(2x) a stretch scale factor 1/2 in the x direction?

Yep.
