Some C4 questionsWatch

Announcements
#1
Ive been going through some questions for C4 using the examination style questions at the back of the book and I have been getting stuck on a few of them and I do not know where I am going wrong. So I was wondering if someone could explain how to do them .

Firstly is question 4C. Which is a question on differential equations.

Hence or otherwise, obtain the solution of
(2x+1)(x-2) dy/dx= 10y

The answer from section 2 helps which asks to intergrate 1/ (2x+1)(x-2)
This is lnk((x-2)/(2x+1))^1/5

Next is question 5C. A population grows in such a way that the rate of change of the population P at time T in days is proportional to P.
The equation is: P=AK^t
C. Initially the population is 8 million and 7 days later it has grown to 8.5 million. Find the size of the population after a further 28 days.

6. Referred to an origion O the points A and B have position vectors i-5j-7k and 10i+10j+5k
Vector equation for the line passing through A and B is r=i-5j-7k+t(9i+15j+12k)
The position vector of point P is 4i-3k
C. Find the area of the triangle OAB
D. Find the ratio in which P divides the line AB.

7C. intergate 9tsintdt between pie/2 and pie/3 (-) intergral 12sin^2tcost st between pie/2 and pie/3.

Any help would be appreciated, would just like to finish the last steps of these off.

4C: Divide by (2x+1)(x-2) and 10y. Multiply by dx. The hence or otherwise does the bit on the right. You should be able to do the bit on the left (hint involves lny)

5C: P=AK^t

Initially in C4 maths language is t=0. Therefore, initially, P=A, A=8 (measuring pop in millions to save time).  Solve to get k = (1.0625)^(1/7)
You now know A, K and t = 28. Find P.

For 6.C. It is a little bit out there but I would got with Heron's formula.

You see the length And the length And because you've probably got t=1 the length Or you could use the three lengths to find an angle (cosine rule) and use that angle and 2 other lengths to get 0

7C. intergate 9tsintdt between pie/2 and pie/3 (-) intergral 12sin^2tcost st between pie/2 and pie/3.

To integrate 9tsint dt use integration by parts.

u = 9t
dv/dt = sin(t)

du/dt = 9
v = -cos(t)

So the integral is -9t*cos(t)-INT(-9cos(t))
So it's -9t*cos(t)+9*sin(t)

I think that's right, but make sure you do it yourself to make sure you understand the process.

To integrate the other one, suppose the integral is:

4(sin(t)^3)

What would the derivative be? Using the chain rule:

12*cos(t)*(sin(t)^2)

So that's it. Now just calculate the definite integral and you should be done.

What you're probably supposed to do is use to get the angle are then plug it into the area formula.

#6 The part on the left is done by parts:   The part on the right is quite easy: (Original post by ProgressDesired)
7C.
Sorry, when I started writing this wasn't posted. At least the answers match .

Thanks to everyone who has helped =) Understand how to do them all now, except the vectors one.

Sorry, but I also have a few more questions, these questions I would just like to know certain bits.
1. Subsitution: x/square root(x-2)
x=2+u -> Subsitution
Could I have help just up until the subbing in, as I cannot work out where i keep going wrong.

2. Differential equations.
dy/dx= 3y^2/ (2x+1)^3
y=2, x=1. Give answer in the form y= f(x)
Need help with all of it after rearranging it.

3. Using the subsitution u=1+2x
intergral 4x/(1+2x)^2

Then using this helps with differential equations. Given that y= pi/4 when x=0 solve the differential equation.
(1+2x)^2 dy/dx= x/sin^2y

Thank you all again =)
