# C1 help urgent pleasse Watch

1. ok i've been revising + this paper just shockd me

http://www.xtremepapers.net/OCR/Math.../Paper%201.pdf

question 9) i) how are you mean't to differenatiate it?
i have no idea how u re-arrange that equation and differentiate it

and 10) c) why on earth does x-7(3x+22)+14 make x = -7??

x

it rearranges to: 0.5x - x^-1 + 3
can you go from there?

For the first differentiation question, treat as and as . You should be able to differentiate it following the usual rules.

thanks + any ideas about 10) ii) for finding C?

Well, I ran through it quickly, and I got x = 7 instead of x = -7. Where did you get that figure from? As far as I know x - 7(3x + 22) + 14 = 0 seems pretty correct.

to find b set x to 0

to find c set the equations of the two lines equalto eachother and solve
10. Simultaneous equations with the two line equations.

Do you notice on the front page of the papers how it says that

"These sheets may be copied for use solely by the purchaser’s institute"?

Do you think that xtremepapers have paid Solomon Press or Shaun Armstrong for the use of these papers?

how does x-7(3x+22)+14 =0 make x=7?
dont u expand the brackets out and get x-21x+154+14??

Yes you do expand the brackets - check your expansion again btw.

x=7 is one of the answers - there are two.
