For AS-core you should know:

- How to solve quadratic equations by factorising, completing the square and “the formula”.
- The significance of the discriminant of a quadratic equation.
- How to solve simultaneous equations (including one linear one quadratic).
- How to solve linear and quadratic inequalities.

QUICK QUIZ

Question 1

The expression (2x-5)(x+3) is equivalent to:

A) 2x2 + x - 15

B) 2x2 - x - 15

C) 2x2 + 11x - 15

D) 2x2 - 2x - 15

E) Don’t know

(2x-5)(x+3)

= 2x2 +6x – 5x -15

= 2x2 +x – 15

Question 2

The discriminantof the quadratic equation

2x2 +5x-1=0

is:

A) 17

B) 33

C) 27

D) -3

E) I don’t know

b2 – 4ac

= 52 – 4 x 2 x (-1)

= 25 + 8 =33

Question 3

Consider the simultaneous equations:

x + 3y = 5

3x – y =5

The correct value of x for the solution is:

A) x=1

B) x= -1

C) x=2

D) x= -2

E) I don’t know

3 x (2) 9x –3 y =15(3)

+ x + 3y = 5(1) 10x = 20

x=2

Take away 16 since the -4 in the bracket will give us an extra 16.

Worked ExampleWrite 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.

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

Worked Example extra 16.

Solve the simultaneous equations

x – 2y = 1,

x2 + y2 = 29.

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!

Worked Example extra 16.

a) Find the set of values of x for which 6x+3>5-2x.

A

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.

Worked Example extra 16.

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:

Answers to selected questions extra 16.

Solution to Question 1 extra 16.

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.

Solution to Question 1 extra 16.

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 * 2 + 2 * 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 = 10 + 3 = 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.

Solution to Question 2 extra 16.

Question 2

The radius of the circle in (ii) is:

A) √45

B) ½ √45

C) √85

D) ½ √85

E) Don’t know.

Solution to Question 2 extra 16.

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 ) = √ (62 + 72 ) = √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 = 1 + 81/4 = 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

A) 12

B) 6x

C) 48

D) 8

E) Don’t know

C) dx/dt = 1.5

D) dt/dx = 1.5

E) Don’t know

Question 3 extra 16.

Solution to Question 3 extra 16.

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 extra 16.

Worked Example extra 16.

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.

Worked Example extra 16.

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 – 12 - 8 =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 = -2 -3 +8 +9 =12.

So coordinates of Q are (-1,12).

Question 1

A curve has equation y = 10 – 3x7.

Find dy/dx

Find an equation for the tangent to the curve at the point where x=2.

Determine whether y is increasing or decreasing when x = -3.

dy/dx = -21x6

When x = 2, dy/dx = - 21 x 26 = -1344.

So y = -1344 x + c.

When x = 2, y = 10 – 3 (2) 7 = - 374.

So (2,-374) is point on the curve.

Using this point in y = -1344 x + c gives -374 = -1344 x 2 + c.

So c = 2314.

Equation of tangent is y = -1344x + 2314.

When x=-3, dy/dx = -21 x (-3) 6 = -15309 < 0. So y is decreasing.

Question 2

A curve has equation y=x3 + 44x2 + 29x

Find dy/dx

Hence find the coordinates of the points on the curve where dy/dx=0.

i) dy/dx = 3x2 + 88x + 29

ii) dy/dx = 0 when 3x2 +88x + 29 = 0.

So 3x2 +88x + 29 = 0 implies (3x+1)(x+29) = 0, so x=-29 or x =-1/3.

We need the coordinates.

When x = -1/3, y = (-1/3)3 + 44(-1/3)2 + 29(-1/3) = 1/9 + 44/9 -29/3 = -14/3.

So one point has coordinate (-1/3, -14/3).

When x = -29, y = (-29)3 + 44(-29)2 + 29(-29) = 11774.

So second point has coordinate (-29,11774)

Question 1 extra 16.

Which of the following is a factor of x³ + x² + 2x + 8

- x+2
- x-2
- x+1
- x-1
- Don’t know

Solution to Question 1 extra 16.

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 extra 16.

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 extra 16.

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 extra 16.

Solution to Question 3 extra 16.

- 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

Find the binomial expansion of (3+x)4, writing each term as simply as possible.

Binomial Expansion

In our example, a=3, b = x and n=4.

Worked Example extra 16.

When x3 + 3x +k is divided by x-1, the remainder is 6. Find the value of k.

Remainder Theorem:

If f(x) is divided by x-a, then the remainder is f(a)

If f(x) = x3 + 3x +k , then f(1) = 13 + 3x1 +k = 6.

So 4+k =6, so k=2.

Solution to Question 1 extra 16.

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) 4x2 +20 x + 25 = (2x+5)(2x+5)

So 4x2 +20 x + 25 =0 implies (2x+5)(2x+5)=0, so x=-5/2.

Solution to Question 2 extra 16.

Question 2

f(x) = x3 + ax2 +7

Put x=-2, to get f(-2) = (-2)3 + a(-2)2 +7 = 0

So -8 + 4a +7 =0. Thus 4a=1, a = ¼.

Solution to Question 3 extra 16.

Question 3

Solution to Question 3 extra 16.ctd

-2c=10, c=-5

a=2

-2a + b = -1

-4 + b =-1, b =3

So x=1 and x=-5/2 are other roots of the equation.
