1. part b)

I know what to do but I'm having a nightmare rearranging to find a nice equation for the normal as such in the mark scheme.

here's my working so far

Then you can deduce that i'm an extremely impatient person.

can't embed it onto my original post for some reason.

10. Which exam board is this?

I can't follow what you've done.

find dy/dx. Plug in the x value at p for the gradient of the tangent.

Flip and times by -1 for the gradient of the normal.

use y-y1=m(x-x1) to find the equation of the normal.

Plug in the zeroes to find where it crosses the axes.

use 1/2bh to find the area of the triangle.

oh im an idiot. I forgot to plug in the x value for my gradient of the normal. smh.

Did you manage to get the answer?

almost, however it looks like I have mine in a different form but is still numerically the same.

my form:

mark scheme:

If the answer they are looking for is a single fraction, then you should probably write your answer as a single fraction.

Yes your answer is the same as the mark scheme, but you need to be able to convert to it otherwise you don't get the last mark.

my form:

mark scheme:

e^(-n) =1/(e^n)

Use this and turn it into a single fraction using the LCM.
