    Hi, I asked for help on the maths form in the Scottish Qualification section however I believe that this form will reach more people and faster who can hopefully help me.

    Can someone please help me with this maths homework, I have no clue at all how to do these 3 questions and the homework is for tomorrow so I know it is a lot to ask at this late stage but any help would be much appreciated.

    I'm unable to read your attachments because they are far too small, could you upload it via imgur or tinpypic or something of that sort?

    Uploaded to imgur but I don't know if that has made them that much bigger but it is the biggest I can do

    Somebody else will have to help, I'm sorry but I can't read anything on them. If you'd like to write the first question out, I could try giving a hand?

    Please look at your images before posting them.

    If you're struggling to read them then we have no chance.

    Question 3
    Prove that √3 cos x + sin x = 2 cos (x - π/6)


    Question 4
    The frequency, f hertz, of the sound of a car alarm t seconds after it starts is given by:
    f = 2500 - 200sin120t° + 200√3cos120t°

    Part A
    Express f in the form f = 2500 + k sin(120t + a)°, where k > 0 and 0° less than or equal to a and less than or equal to 180°

    Part B
    Find the maximum value of f and the first time when this occurs

    Part C
    If the frequency rises above 2800 hertz, the alarm may cause noise pollution. Between which times is the alarm above this frequency.

    Do you know what cos(A - B) is equal to?

    Expand 2\cos (x - \pi/6) = 2\cos x \cos \frac{\pi}{6} + 2 \sin x \sin \frac{\pi}{6}.

    Is that all the working?

    cos(A - B) = cos A cos B + sin A sin B

    Substitute in A=x and B=pi/6 and then you will get your answer after multiplying by 2.

    You'd need to plug in the exact values for \sin \frac{\pi}{6} and \cos \frac{\pi}{6}.
