    Hi guys I really need help with Question 6 part 4.


    What I did was change y=ln(x) to y=4ln(x-2)
    and then changed y=8-2x2 to y=4(8-(x-2)2)

    and then tried to equate them and got an iterative formula. When I looked at the mark scheme, it said to use the answer of part 3 which i got to be 1.917 to get the value of 3.92. Using the iterative formula, if i put in 1.917 i get 3.27.
    my iterative formula is the square root of 4+4x-(lnx/ln2)

    Please could you show me where I am going wrong or break down the question for me?
    thank you very much for your help, I really do appreciate it.

    You're over complicating Q6 (iii)

    Rather than actually changing the equations of the curve, use the fact that the original curves are moving.

    BOTH curves move 2 to the right, and so will the point of intersection.

    Also as both curves are stretched with SF 4 in the y direction, surely all you need to do is find the original (y coord) for the point of intersection and times it by 4?

    -------

    Q9 (i)

    Taking a picture is easier than typing it so hopefully you can read it

    Thanks so much for question 9!

    But I'm still stumped for question 6 part 4

    So the point of intersection is 1.917 on x, and so 0.65 on y,
    both graphs move 2 in the x direction so it becomes 3.917 on x and then (0.65*4) which is 2.6


    OMG THANK YOU!!!
