y = 5/(3x

(a) Complete the table below, giving the values of y to 2 decimal places.

(b) Use the trapezium rule, with all the values of y from your table, to find an approximate value for

Figure 2 shows a sketch of part of the curve with equation y = 5/(3x^{2} - 2), x > 1

At the points A and B on the curve, x = 2 and x = 3 respectively.

The region S is bounded by the curve, the straight line through B and (2, 0), and the line through A parallel to the y-axis. The region S is shown shaded in Figure 2.

(c) Use your answer to part (b) to find an approximate value for the area of S.7. (a) Show that the equation 3 sin

can be written in the form 4 sin^{2} x + 7 sin x + 3 = 0

(b) Hence solve, for 0 ≤ x < 360°,

3 sin^{2} x + 7 sin x = cos^{2} x - 4
