(b) Hence find the values of , to one decimal place, in the interval 0 < 360 for which 2 sin 2 = cos 2 . (5) 3. The equation x2 + 5kx + 2k = 0, where k is a constant, has real roots. (a) Prove that k(25k 8) 0. (2) (b) Hence find the set of possible values of k. (4) (c) Write down the values of k for which the equation x2 + 5kx + 2k = 0 has equal roots. (1)


Each year, for 40 years, Anne will pay money into a savings scheme. In the first year she pays 500. Her payments then increase by 50 each year, so that she pays 550 in the second year, 600 in the third year, and so on. (a) Find the amount that Anne will pay in the 40th year. (2) (b) Find the total amount that Anne will pay in over the 40 years. (2) Over the same 40 years, Brain will also pay money into the savings scheme. In the first year he pays in 890 and his payments then increase by d each year. Given that Brian and Anne will pay in exactly the same amount over the 40 years, (c) find the value of d. (4)


The function f, defined for x , x > 0, is such that f (x) = x2 2 + (a) Find the value of f (x) at x = 4. (3) (b) Given that f(3) = 0, find f(x). (4) (c) Prove that f is an increasing function. (3)

Figure 1 shows the cross-sections of two drawer handles. Shape X is a rectangle ABCD joined to a semicircle with BC as diameter. The length AB = d cm and BC = 2d cm. Shape Y is a sector OPQ of a circle with centre O and radius 2d cm. Angle POQ is radians. Given that the areas of the shapes X and Y are equal, (a) prove that = 1 +

Figure 2 shows part of the curve with equation y = x3 6x2 + 9x. The curve touches the x-axis at A and has a maximum turning point at B. (a) Show that the equation of the curve may be written as y = x(x 3)2, and hence write down the coordinates of A. (2) (b) Find the coordinates of B. (5) The shaded region R is bounded by the curve and the x-axis. (c) Find the area of R. (5)
