i'll try my best... according to f(x) x must be bigger than zero.

the graph for fg is 3e^x +x^2 ..... is you sub x=0 you get y as 3.... after 3... y keeps increasing exponentially so the range (values of y) is bigger than 3. hope this helps

this image shows what im trying to say
Omg thaaaaaanks! so in these questions I just substitute the domain to find the range and draw a graph right?

Do you have to know how to derive the factor formulae? ExamSolutions didn't mention it in his factor formulae videos so I guess not but I just wanna make sure...

X^2 + 3 is always positive anyway, so you can just remove the mod sign
Ok, what if it was:

|x^2 - 36| + 2x

a) Use the double angle formula to expand Rcos(x-#) (pretending # is alpha):L

Rcos(x - #) ---> Rcosxcos# + Rsinxsin#

Take coefficients of cosx and sinx:

Rcos# = 1 and Rsin# = ROOT(3)

Since Rcos#/Rsin# ----> tan# (where R cancels out)

-> tan# = Root(3)/1

solve tan^-1(root(3)/1) to get your value for #. # = (pie)/3

To find R -----> R^2 = 1^2 + (root(3))^2
R = root(4) = 2
Leave in the form - 2cos(x - (pie)/3) where you have a value for # as (pie)/3

b) Use your values in part a) to solve b)! Very much like C2!!

Hope this helps!!

Doubt this will ever come up, but here's how I would do it:

Consider when the inside of the | | sign is negative. This is when -6<x<6. A property of the mod sign is |y| =-y when y<0. In this case y=x^2 -36. So from -6<x<6, the curve you need to sketch is -(x^2 -36) +2x, and for the other parts you need to sketch x^2 -36 +2x

I assume you've done the first part? In the second, you should end up with cos(2x-α)-cos(x)=0

What teeEm has done in the solutions is use the periodicity of cos, however, you can also write this in an alternate form using factor formula (in the formula book)

the first part r= sqrt(1^2+sqrt3^2)
and a tan^-1 (sqrt3/1)
i think
and i would be ****ed if b came up in the exam

Can someone confirm that integration and implicit differentiation are not part of edexcel C3. Thanks.

Thanksss everyone. How would writing it in cosP+cosQ help?
