Hey, could anyone give me a hand with some of these past paper questions? The exam is coming up soon and with some questions I can't even remember the methods of doing them and others I just simply can't get anywhere. Thanks in advance.

June 07

1) Find the exact solutions to the equations:

(a) ln x + ln 3 = ln 6

(b) e^x + 3e^-x = 4

(a) ln x + ln 3 = ln 6

take ln3 from ln6 so you get: lnx = ln6-ln3 which is the same as ln(6/3) = ln2

so you have lnx = ln2 - so ln's cancel so you have x=2

(b) e^x + 3e^-x = 4

take logs of both sides so you have: xlne + -x ln3e = ln4 (remeber logx^n is the same as nlogx which is why the x's can come to the front

lne = 0 so it can cancel, so now you have

x - x(ln3e) = ln4 --> ln3e = ln3 + lne so again lne cancels

so now you have x-xln3 = ln4

take out factor of x

x(1-ln3) = ln 4

divide ln4 by (1-ln3) and you have x

remember that questions wants the 'exact value' so leave the answer with logs and e's

and btw, I only *think* this is how you do them, im just trying lol

I'll try to help, by giving some hints!

June 07

1) a) Put ln(x) as the subject, and mess around with the other side into one ln(a/b). Then do e^ of both sides.

b) i did this by rearranging it into a quadratic and solving it that way.

3) b) do dy/dx (product rule) and find stationary points, obv.

d) then d2y/dx^2 to find out the nature.

5)a) work out fg(x) and then sub in x=4, simplify and leave answer in ln.

b) y=f(x)

make x the subject of the equation

then change x for the y's, and make that f^-1(x).

work domain out from that.

Jan 08

1) i'm guessing you split into two quotients and then just simplify until you get what it asks for.

2) a) dy/dx using product rule and make dy/dx=0 and work that out.

b) then work out gradient at x=0 and use y=mx+c to get the tangent.

7)

a) dy/dx, then sub in value of x

then find negative reciprocal for the gradient at that value

and use y=mx+c again.

hope i helped a bit, didnt really know what you wanted as you didnt show working.

For JUn 7

1a) Use the logarithmic identities and that the logaritmic funtion is strictly monotone

$lna+lnb=ln(ab)$

1b) Use the $e^x=t$ substitution and you will get a quadratic equation

3a

Find where is the derivative zero

$y'=2xe^x+x^2e^x=xe^x(x+2)=0$

3b)If Derivative is + the function is monotone increasing, and decreasing

if the derivative is negative. Where the derivative change the sing and is zero

there is a maximum or minimum.

5a)

THe composite funtion

$f[g(x)]=ln(\frac{4}{x-3}-1)$

Substitute 4 into x

5b)x=ln(2y-1) Solve to y

JAN8

1)

$\displaystyle \frac{2x^4-3x^2+x+1}{x^2-1}=ax^2+bx+c+\frac{dx+e}{x^2-1}$

At he left side divide the numerator by the denominator. It will be

$2x^2-1+\frac{x}{x^2-1}$

Comparing the two sides you will get the values of parameters

2a)

THE derivative of function is zero

$2e^{2x}tanx+\frac{1}{cos^2x}=0$

take out e^(2x) as factor and solve the equation

Note $\frac{1}{cos^2x}=1+tan^2x$

2b)

find the coords of C (x0=0 -> y0)

Write down the derivative (y') and calculate y'(0)=m

the equation:

$y-y_0=m(x-x_0)$

7a)

Similarly as abobe but the equation

$y-y_0=-\frac{1}{m}(x-x_0)$

June 07

1) Find the exact solutions to the equations:

(a) ln x + ln 3 = ln 6

ln(3x) = ln6

3x = 6

(b) e^x + 3e^-x = 4

e^x + 3/(e^x) = 4

(e^x)^2 + 3 = 4e^x

then substitute in y = e^x

y^2 - 4y + 3 = 0

3) A curve C has equation y = (x^2)(e^x)

(b) Find the turning points

dy/dx = (x^2)(e^x) + 2x(e^x) = 0

xe^x(x +2) = 0

x = 0 or -2, y = 0 or 4e^-2

(d) Determine the nature of each turning point of the curve C.

d^2y/dx^2 = (x^2)(e^x) + 2x(e^x) + 2x(e^x) + 2e^x

=e^x(x^2 + 4x +2)

sub in x = 0 and -2 to determine maximum or minimum

5) Functions f and g are defined by:

f:-> ln(2x-1), where x>0.5

g:-> 2/(x-3), where x doesn't equal 3

(a) Find exact value of fg(4)

g(4) = 2/1 = 2

f(g(4)) = f(2) = ln3

(b) Find inverse function of f^-1 (x), stating its domain

First, the range of f(x) is f(x) belongs to set of real numbers (the double R thing), so that's the domain of f^-1(x)

y = ln(2x - 1)

e^y = 2x - 1

2x = e^y + 1

x = 0.5(e^y + 1)

f^-1(x) = 0.5(e^x + 1)

Multiply out by (x^2 - 1), and equate coefficients.

2) A curve C has equation:

y= e^2x tan x , where x cannot equal (2n+1)pi/2

(a) Show the turning points on C occur where tan x = -1

dy/dx = -2e^2x = 0

but I don't think this can be right - as N -> 0, lnN -> ?

(b) Find an equation of the tangent to C at point where x = 0

7) Curve C has equation:

y= 3sin2x + 4cos2x, -Pi < x < Pi The point A (0,4) lies on C.

(a) Find an equation of the normal to curve C at A.

dy/dx = 6cos2x - 8sin2x = 6cos0 - 8sin0 = 6 - 0 = 6

therefore, gradient of the normal is -1/6 = y-4/x...

-x = 6y - 24

6y + x = 24

3x = 6

(b) e^x + 3e^-x = 4

(a) ln x + ln 3 = ln 6

take ln3 from ln6 so you get: lnx = ln6-ln3 which is the same as ln(6/3) = ln2

so you have lnx = ln2 - so ln's cancel so you have x=2

(b) e^x + 3e^-x = 4

take logs of both sides so you have: xlne + -x ln3e = ln4 (remeber logx^n is the same as nlogx which is why the x's can come to the front

lne = 0 so it can cancel, so now you have

x - x(ln3e) = ln4 --> ln3e = ln3 + lne so again lne cancels

so now you have x-xln3 = ln4

take out factor of x

x(1-ln3) = ln 4

divide ln4 by (1-ln3) and you have x

remember that questions wants the 'exact value' so leave the answer with logs and e's

and btw, I only *think* this is how you do them, im just trying lol
