A vector is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction

Vectors can be added using scale drawings.

Head to Tail method:

a

a

b

a + b

Therefore:

a + b = b + a

b

* Notice that this is the same result as b + a

A scalar is a quantity that has magnitude but no direction.

e.g. ordinary numbers, & quantities like temperature, mass & volume.

We can multiply a vector by a scalar.

e.g.x multiplied by 2 gives 2x

x

x

x

x

x

x

-3x

2x

e.g.x multiplied by -3 gives -3x

* The negative sign reverses the direction of the vector

The result of a â€“ b is the same as a + -b

Note 6: Functions

Function Notation

f(x) = x2+ 3 orf : xx2 +3

We can read this as â€œthe function f, such that, x is mapped on x2 +3

If f(x) = 7x â€“ 5 and g(x) = 2x2 +5, find:

a.) f(2) b.) f(-4) c.) g(3) d.) g(0)

f(2) = 7(2) - 5

f(-4) = 7(-4) - 5

g(3) = 2(3)2 + 5

g(0) = 0 + 5

f(-4) = -33

g(2) = 23

g(2) = 5

f(2) = 9

Note 6: Functions

If f : x and g : x âˆš[5(x+2)], find:

a.) x if f(x) = 40 b.) x if g(x) = 10

5x2

2

âˆš[5(x+2)] = 10

= 40

[5(x+2)] = 102

5x2 = 2 x 40

5(x+2) = 100

5x2 = 80

(x+2) = 20

x2 = 16

x = 18

x = Â± 4

Note 6: Functions (flow diagrams)

We can illustrate functions using flow diagrams.

e.g.The function (7x + 8)2 consists of 3 simpler functions

7x

x

7x+8

(7x+8)2

multiply by 7

add 8

square

Note 6: Functions

e.g. The functions h and k are defined as follows:

h: x x2 + 1, k:x ax + b, whereaandbare constants.

If h(0) = k(0) and k(2) = 15, find values of aandb

h(0) = 02 + 1

= 1

k(2) = 15

a(2) + 1 = 15

IGCSE

Ex 11 Pg 265-267

k(0) = 1

a(0) + b = 1

2a + 1= 15

2a = 14

a = 7

b = 1

Note 7: Composite Functions

Consider f(x) = x4and g(x) is 2x + 3

fg means that g converts x to 2x + 3, â€¦.. and thenâ€¦â€¦

f converts 2x + 3 to (2x + 3)4

Note 7: Composite Functions

Consider f(x) = x4and g(x) is 2x + 3

fg means that g converts x to 2x + 3, â€¦.. and thenâ€¦â€¦

f converts 2x + 3 to (2x + 3)4

Notice how this is different from gf

gf means that f converts x to x4 , â€¦.. and thenâ€¦â€¦

g converts x4to 2(x4) + 3

You must get used to reading and applying the composite function from right to left

In general, fg=gf

Note 7: Composite Functions

Other common notations show fg as f(g(x)) and gf as g(f(x))

e.g. Given f(x) = 2x + 1 and g(x) = 3 â€“ 4x, find in simplest form:

a.) fgb.) gf

= f(g(x))

= g(f(x))

=2(3 â€“ 4x) + 1

=3 â€“ 4(2x + 1)

=6 â€“ 8x +1

=3 â€“ 8x â€“ 4

=7 â€“ 8x

=â€“ 8x â€“ 1

Note 7: Composite Functions

e.g. Given f:x x3

g:x 4 + 5x

h:x 2x

Find:

a.) fgb.) ghc.)fgh

Note 7: Composite Functions

e.g. Given f:x 2x â€“ 8

g:x x + 4

h:x 7x2

Find:

a.) x if fg= 0b.) ggg(5)c.) x if f(x) = g(x)

2x â€“ 8 = x + 4

g ((x+4) + 4))

f(g(x)) = 0

= g (x+ 8)

x = 4 + 8

2(x + 4) â€“ 8 = 0

x = 12

= (x+4) + 8

2x + 8 â€“ 8 = 0

= x + 12

2x = 0

= 5 + 12

x = 0

Note 8: InverseFunctions

Reversing (undoing) a function

The operations: + and â€“

Ã— and Ã·

x2and âˆšx

are all inverse operations because one undoes the other

If a function f maps a number n onto m then its inverse function f-1 will map m onto n.

Multiply by 3

Subtract 5

Divide by 4

Now, start on the right hand side and replace each operation with its inverse

Add 5

Multiply by 4

Divide by 3

Thus, f-1(x) =

Find the inverse of f(x) = 4x-2

So f -1 (x)=(x+2)/4

IGCSE

Ex 12 Pg 268-269

#9-22

- As always in maths, there is a trick to thisâ€¦
- Write function as a rule in terms of y and x.
- Swap â€˜xâ€™ and â€˜yâ€™
- Rearrange to get in terms of y.

f(x) = 5x + 7

y = 5x + 7

x = 5y + 7

x -7 = 5y

y = (x-7)/5

f-1(x) =

Inverse functions only exist for one-one functions.

i.e. functions where each input (x) can

only lead to one possible output ( f(x) )
