1. Question:

For part A) I subbed in x=-3 and x=1 into the equation to find the y values, giving me y=-18 and y=18

However, I don't know how on earth I would go on from there for part A to answer the question. Please could you help me and explain what to do and why?

For part B, I guess it would because they have the same gradient, but please could you help me with what to do for that one?

And just explain how to do c, d, e if you could please, but im mainly focusing on parts A and B atm.

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. This question has got me so stressed.

Part A - you have 2 points. Construct a line equation going through both of them by taking the gradient between the two points use one of the points for

Part B - differentiate the function and show that

Part C - just calculate the distance PR using Pythagoras' Theorem.

Part D - same approach as in C.

Part E - well you can explain the reason using the information given right before part C then find the area by doing
4. a) use (y-y1/x-x1) to find gradient
P(-3,-18) Q(1,18)
using y-y1=m(x-x1)
y-18=9(x-1)
y=9x+9
