Has anyone got any idea how to do question 4 onwards?? I can differentiate but I just don't know how to find the gradient/equation etc

Thank you!!

have u seen y-y1=m(x-x1) where x1,y1 are points that lie on that line.
Also do you know what the 'normal' is.

The normal is the negative reciprocal right? And thanks for the equation - forgot about that!

My biggest problem is not knowing hot to find out the gradient though?? I differentiated it but I just don't know what to do next???

They give you (1,0).
Differentiate and sub x=1 to get the gradiant of the tangent. Negative reciprocal to get the gradiant of the normal.

Hiya,

I tried to differentiate this using the chain rule but my answer isn't right?? I don't understand what I did wrong?

Thanks

Differentiate 1/x then multiply the entire equation by the differential.

help im always confused

in graph transformations is it always stretch before shift?

example 1. y= 2f(x)-4 therefore stretch by 2 and shift 4down?

example 2. y= f(2x-4) halve by 2 and shift right by 4 units?

thank you in advance

Example 1: yes

Example 2 will not happen in Edexcel C3 - it is ruled out in the specification:
"The graph of y = f(ax + b) will not be required."

How do you know it is ruled out in the spec where does it say this
thanks

Time to start Solomon papers.
I take it you've done all of the Edexcel papers that are available, including the one that was withdrawn in 2013, the R papers from 2013 and 2014 and the IAL papers?

1. how to become an expert at trig? particularly trig identities?

2. when roughly should you finish doing the edexcel past papers and move onto the solomon papers?

cheers

For no. 1 its just practice, if things are not working out, change everything to sin and cos.
No. 2. When you have done all the edexcel papers.
