5 + x=6  x=1

## [Sum] = 3 + 6 = 9 [Product] = (3)(6) = 18

Answer : x2 + 9x + 18

## 3. Express f(x) = 3x2 – 6x – 12 in the form of

a(x + p)2 + q. Hence, state the minimum point.

## : f(x) = 3 x2+ 12x – 9

= x2 + 4x – 3
4 4
 x 2  4x        3
2 2
= (x + 2)2 – 5
thus, minimum point ( 2, –5)

## 4. f(x) = x2 + (k – 2)x – k+ 2 has equal roots.

Find the values of k.
b2 – 4 a c = 0
(k – 2)2 – 4(1)(–k + 2) = 0
k2 + 4 – 8 = 0
k2 = 4
k= 2

5. Solve x2 – 3x > 10

x2 – 3x - 10 > 0
(x - 5)(x + 2) > 0
x > 5, x > -2

6. Solve x2 + 5x = 6

x(x + 5) = 6

x=6 , x+5=6

8. 2 log2 3y + log2 y = 4
log2 3y2 + log2 y = 4
3y2 + y = 4
3y2 + y – 4 = 0
(3y + 4 )( y – 1) = 0

## 9. Solve log3 ( y + 4) = log3 2y + 3

log3 y + log3 4 = log3 2y + 3
4y = 2y + 3
y = 

 2 x–1 + x = 12
2x – 1 = 6
