Worked Exam Questions

Worked Example Write the expression x2 -8x – 29 in the form (x+a)2 + b, where a and b are constants. Hence find the roots of the equation x2 -8x – 29 = 0. Express the roots in the form c±d√5 where c and d are constants to be determined. Take away 16 since the -4 in the bracket will give us an extra 16. So a=-4 and b=-45. Don’t forget the plus and minus. A very common error through out A-level! We must complete the question C1(Edexcel) Jun 2005, Q3

Worked Example Solve the simultaneous equations x – 2y = 1, 1)
2) Equation 1 does not have any squared terms, so it is easier to expression x in terms of y You must know how to solve quadratic equations with ease! You could use the formula if you wanted! C1(Edexcel) Jun 2005, Question 5.

Distance between two points
Equation of a circle: Centre: (a, b) Radius: r

Quick Quiz

Question 1 A straight line has equation 10y = 3x + 15.
Which of the following is true? A) The gradient is 0.3 and the y-intercept is 1.5 B) The gradient is 3 and the y-intercept is C) The gradient is 15 and the y-intercept is 3 D) The gradient is 1.5 and the y-intercept is E) Don’t know y = 3/10 x + 15/10 y = 0.31 x + 1.5

A) The y coordinate of the centre is −1 B) The radius of the circle is 2 C) The x coordinate of the centre is −3 D) The point (−3,−1) lies on the circle E) Don’t know The equation represents a circle with centre (-3, 1) and radius 2. So the statement is incorrect

Worked Exam Questions

Worked Example y x O A C B(3,4) NOT TO SCALE
The line AB has equation y=5x-11 and passes through the point B(3,4) as shown above. The line BC is perpendicular to AB and cuts the x-axis at C. Find the equation of the line BC and the x-coodinate of C. Gradient of perpendicular = -1 / (gradient of original) Gradient of line AB is 5 So gradient of line BC is -1/5. Equation of BC is: y = -1/5 x + c Using B(3,4) we get: 4 = -1/5 * 3 + c. So c = 4 + 3/5 = 23/5 So Equation of BC is y = -1/5 x + 23/5 X coordinate of C is given when y = 0. So 0 = -1/5 x + 23/5. So x = 23. C1(MEI) 16th January 2006

Worked Example A circle has equation (x-2)2 + y2 = 45.
State the centre and radius of this circle. The circle intersects the line with equation x + y = 5 at two points, A and B. Find algebraically the coordinates of A and B. Compute the distance between A and B to 2 decimal places. Centre of circle is (2,0) and radius is √45 Equation of line implies: x = 5-y. Using this in the equation of the circle gives: (5-y-2) 2 + y2 = 45 (3-y) 2 + y2 = 45 9-6y+y2 +y2 =45 2 y2 -6y + 9 =45 2 y2 -6y -36 =0 y2 -3y -18 =0 (y-6)(y+3)=0 So y = 6 or y = -3. When y=6, x = 5 – 6 =1. When y=-3, x = 5-(-3) = 8. So coordinates are (1,6) and (8,-3) “State” means you should be able to write down the answer. Equation of circle with centre (a,b) and radius r is (x-a)2 + (y-b)2 = r2 c) Draw a diagram: Distance = Watch the minus signs C1(MEI) 16th January 2006 (1,6) (8,-3)

Question 3 (Part One) C1(MEI) 7th June 2007

Question for you to try (part 2)
Question 3 (Part Two) C1(MEI) 7th June 2007

Answers to selected questions

Solution to Question 1 The equation of the line is: A) 3x + 2y = 26
B) 3x + 2y = 13 C) -3x + 2y = 26 D) -3x + 2y = 13. E) Don’t know. C1(MEI) 6th June 2006

Solution to Question 1 Question 1
Any line parallel to 3x + 2y = 6 must have the same gradient, but a different intercept. (Short method): So any line parallel to given line has the form 3x + 2y = c (constant) If the line goes through (2,10) then 3 * * 10 = c, so c =26. Hence equation is 3x + 2y = 26. (Long method): Rearrange equation to get y = 3 – (3/2) x. Gradient is –(3/2). So new line must have the equation y = -(3/2) x + c Use the point (2,10) to get 10 = -(3/2) * 2 + c. So c = = 13. Thus y = (-3/2)x + 13. (This is the same as the last line since we have 2y = -3x + 26, so 3x + 2y =26. C1(MEI) 6th June 2006

Solution to Question 2 The radius of the circle in (ii) is: A) √45
B) ½ √45 C) √85 D) ½ √85 E) Don’t know. C1 (MEI) June 2006

Solution to Question 2 Gradient = change in y/change in x D(x,y)
Gradient of AB =(8-0)/(9-5) = 8/4 =2 Gradient of BC = (1-0)/(3-5) = 1/(-2) = -½ Product of gradients = 2 x (-½) = -1, so perpendicular. If AC is diameter then midpoint of AC is centre of the circle. Midpoint of AC = AC = √ ((9-3)2 + (8-1)2 ) = √ ( ) = √85 So diameter is √85 and hence radius is ½√85 So equation of the circle is (x-6)2 + (y-4.5)2 = (½√85)2 =85/4 So equation is (x-6)2 + (y-4.5)2 =85/4 Coordinates of B(5,0) give (5-6)2 + (0-4.5)2 = /4 = 85/4. So B lies on the circle. iii) Let (x,y) be coordinates of D. Midpoint of BD is centre of circle (6,4.5). So So coordinates of D are (7,9). Gradient = change in y/change in x C1 (MEI) June 2006 D(x,y) (6,4.5) B(5,0)

How to sketch the graph of a quadratic given in completed square form. The effect of a translation of a curve. The effect of a stretch of a curve. QUICK QUIZ

Quick Quiz

Question 1 The vertex of the quadratic graph y=(x-2)2 - 3 is : A) Minimum (2,-3) B) Minimum (-2,3) C) Maximum (2,-3) D) Maximum (-2,-3) E) Don’t know The graph has a minimum point, since the coefficient of x² is positive. The smallest possible value of (x-2)2 is 0, when x = 2. [When x = 2 y = -3]

Worked Exam Questions

Worked Exam Question i) Write x2 -2x - 2 in the form (x-p)2 + q.
ii) State the coordinates of the minimum point on the graph y= x2 -2x - 2 . iii) Find the coordinates of the points where the graph of y= x2 -2x - 2 crosses the axes and sketch the graph. iv) Show that the graphs of y= x2 -2x - 2 and y= x2 +4x - 5 intersect only once. Find the x coordinate of the point of intersection. x2 -2x – 2 = (x-1) = (x-1)2 -3. So p=1 and q =-3. (x-1)2 has its smallest value when x=1, y value at this point is -3. So minimum point is (1,-3). Graph crosses x-axis when y=0. x2 -2x – 2 =0 implies (x-1)2 -3 =0. So (x-1) = ±√3. So x= 1 ±√3. Coordinates are (1 +√3,0) and (1 -√3,0) Graph crosses y-axis when x=0. So coordinates are (0,-2) C1(MEI) 16th January 2006 y x (1-√3,0) (1+√3,0) (0,-2) (1,-3)

CALCULUS (NON-MEI)

Key Topics

For AS-core you should know:
How the derivative of a function is used to find the gradient of its curve at a given point. What is meant by a chord and how to calculate the gradient of a chord. How the gradient of a chord can be used to approximate the gradient of a tangent. How to differentiate integer powers of x and rational powers of x. What is meant by a stationary point of a function and how differentiation is used to find them. Using differentiation to find lines which are tangential to and normal to a curve. QUICK QUIZ

Quick Quiz

Question 1 The gradient of the curve y=3x2 – 4 at the point (2,8) is : A) 12 B) 6x C) 48 D) 8 E) Don’t know If y=3x2 – 4 then dy/dx = 6x x=2 dy/dx = 6x2 = 12 So gradient of curve at (2,8) is 12.

Question 2 If then A) dy/dx =1.5 B) dy/dx = 3/2 - t C) dx/dt = 1.5 D) dt/dx = 1.5 E) Don’t know

Question 3

Solution to Question 3 The correct answer is (B) POINT A: the gradient is positive (sloping upwards from left to right) when x = 0. Hence, the graph of the derivative crosses the y-axis at a positive value of y. POINT’S B: the gradient is zero, this means that the graph of the derivative must cross the x-axis at the points labelled B’. The original curve looks like the graph of a cubic, so we would expect the graph of its derivative to be a quadratic graph (a parabola), passing through the points labelled A’ and B’.

Worked Exam Questions

Worked Example i) If y = x² – 3x + 1 then dy/dx = 2x -3.
A curve has equation y = x² – 3x + 1. i) Find the equation of the tangent to the curve at the point where x = 1. ii) Find the equation of the normal to the curve at the point where x = 3. i) If y = x² – 3x + 1 then dy/dx = 2x -3. When x=1, gradient is given by dy/dx evaluated at x=1: gradient = 2x1 -3 = -1. Equation of a straight line y=mx +c So y = -x + c When x = 1, y = 1² – 3x1 + 1 = -1. So line passes through (1,-1). So -1 = -1 + c, so c= 0. Equation of tangent is y=-x. ii) When x=3, gradient is given by dy/dx: gradient = 2 x 3 – 3 = 3. Gradient of normal = -1/gradient of tangent. So gradient of normal is -1/3. When x=3, y = 3² – 3x3 + 1 = 1. So line passes though (3,1). Equation of line is y = -1/3 x + c Using the point (3,1) gives: 1 = (-1/3) x 3 + c. So x = -2. Equation of normal is y = -1/3 x -2. C2 (MEI) Chapter Assessment Differentiation Q4

Worked Example i) If y = 2x3 -3x2 – 8x + 9, then dy/dx = 6x2 – 6x -8.
A curve has equation y = 2x3 -3x2 – 8x + 9. Find the equation of the tangent to the curve at the point P (2, -3). Find the coordinates of the point Q at which the tangent is parallel to the tangent at P. i) If y = 2x3 -3x2 – 8x + 9, then dy/dx = 6x2 – 6x -8. When x = 2, dy/dx = 6x22 – 6x2 -8. = 24 – =4. Tangent has gradient 4 and passes through (2,-3). Using y = mx + c we have y = 4x +c. Using the point (2,-3) we have -3 = 4 x 2 + c, so c = -11. Hence equation of tangent is y = 4x -11. ii) Tangent at P has gradient 4. Tangent is parallel when gradient is the same. So dy/dx = 6x2 – 6x -8 = 4 So 6x2 – 6x -12 =0, so x2 – x - 2 =0. Thus (x-2)(x+1) = 0, which implies x=2 or x=-1. WE NEED THE COORDINATES P is where x=2, so Q is the point where x=-1. When x = -1, y = 2(-1)3 -3(-1)2 – 8(-1) + 9 = =12. So coordinates of Q are (-1,12). C2 (MEI) Chapter Assessment Differentiation Q5

Question 1 Which of the following is a factor of x³ + x² + 2x + 8 x+2
Don’t know

Solution to Question 1 The solution is (A).
If (x-a) is a factor of f(x), then f(a)=0. If f(x) = x³ + x² + 2x + 8 then f(-2) = 0, so x+2 is a factor. f(2) =24, so x-2 is not a factor. f(-1) = 6, so x+1 is not a factor. f(1) = 12, so x-1 is not a factor.

Question 2 If x-2 is a factor of f(x)=3x³ – 5x² + ax + 2, then the value of a is: A) 21 B) 3 C)-21 D)-3 E) Don’t know

Solution to Question 2 The correct answer is (d).
If x-a is a factor of f(x), then f(a)=0 If f(x)=3x³ – 5x² + ax + 2, then f(2) = 3(2)³ – 5(2)² + a(2) + 2 = 2a+6. Since 2 is a factor f(2)=0, so 2a+6 =0, so a=-3.

Question 3

Solution to Question 3 The correct answer is C
The graph of y=(x-a)(x-b)(x+c) crosses the x-axis at (a, 0), (b, 0) and (-c, 0). Since two of the intersections are with the positive x-axis and one with the negative x-axis, the graph must be either A or C. Since y is positive for large positive values of x, the correct graph is C

Answers to selected questions

Solution to Question 1 Question 1
i) We need the discriminant to be greater than or equal to zero. b2 -4ac = 52 -4x1xk =25-4k. For one or more real roots we need 25-4k≥0. So 25/4 ≥ k. ii) 4x x + 25 = (2x+5)(2x+5) So 4x x =0 implies (2x+5)(2x+5)=0, so x=-5/2. C1(MEI) 16th January 2006

Solution to Question 2 Question 2 f(x) = x3 + ax2 +7
Put x=-2, to get f(-2) = (-2)3 + a(-2)2 +7 = 0 So a +7 =0. Thus 4a=1, a = ¼. C1(MEI) 6th June 2006
