    Does anyone understand how to do q3c in this international paper?
    http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...e_20130613.pdf

    Apparently k = positive or negative root 50

    Can someone help me with this. I hate these questions

    Ideally can I have a numerical method as I hate graphs

    Not sure what part you mean?
    But for a, just find g(4) and then sub the value you get into f(x)

    For inverses, I like to say "let f^-1(x) = y
    Then you go to the f(x) equation, replace f(x) with x and replace any x with y
    Then you rearrange to find y

    c is a standard graph, obvious asymptote and the typical shape you get with graphs like y = 1/x

    For d, you just need to solve two equations. The expression in moduli can be equal either to 3 or to -3, since when you take the modulus of either you get 3.

    Try drawing the cos graph, or maybe use CAST.

    8c? Idk how to do it lol
    and do we need to know sec, cosec and cot graphs? ffs

    You should have dy/dx from part a
    set it equal to zero and rearrange it to get the non-logged x's together

    Yes, I think so. They aren't too bad, and if you forget one you can probably make a very educated guess at it by considering what happens at different values of x.

    how do you find a starting value for an iteration formula ?? from solomon a paper

    You can pick any value but looking at the question it is common sense to pick 2 as based on the sketch you drew in the previous section you know it crossed near that asymptote

    what question? the range of k?

    I thought you wanted to know how to find the starting value for the iteration formula like in the example in Solomon paper A Q8)

    Sorry, it was the last part of the question. Do I square both sides??

    You can start with any value, the value you start with doesnt matter. The further away you are from the true value with the value of Xo you start with the longer the iteration will take. I was simply telling you how to pick an appropriate value, use things like asymptotes and known values / coordinates to make a good guess of what to use as your approximation

    You can but I don't think squaring is necessary; like I said you are taking the absolute value of what is in between the modulus signs and getting out 3; therefore the actual value can be 3 or -3

    For 5b, why is x = 3.742?

    My calculator reports 3rt2(cos(0.295 + pi/4)) as 2 (0.295 is unrounded).

    Edit: Also, where did the solution for 8c come from? The question seems like they're asking where it crosses the x-axis to me, and it doesn't unless k = 0?

    Does anyone else do graph reflections and Inverses by looking at the reflection in the calculator screen? Haha

    Need an A* in maths for my economics offer.

    Worried that this year the C3 and C4 papers will be difficult.

    Typically average 70/75 in past papers but noticed they gotten much harder the last few years.

    How will this year's exams compare?

    Thanks

    Then practice with something more difficult
