Core 2 Mathematics Edexcel June 2013 Question 6

Figure 3 shows a sketch of part of the curve C with equation

y = x(x + 4)(x – 2)

The curve C crosses the x-axis at the origin O and at the points A and B.
(a) Write down the x-coordinates of the points A and B.

The finite region, shown shaded in Figure 3, is bounded by the curve C and the x-axis.
(b) Use integration to find the total area of the finite region shown shaded in Figure 3.

7. (i) Find the exact value of x for which log2(2x) = log2(5x + 4) -3

(ii) Given that loga y + 3loga 2 = 5

express y in terms of a.

Core 2 Mathematics Edexcel June 2013 Question 8

8. (i) Solve, for –180° < x < 180°,

tan(x – 40°) = 1.5, giving your answers to 1 decimal place.

(ii) (a) Show that the equation
sinθtanθ = 3cosθ + 2

can be written in the form
4cos2θ + 2cosθ – 1 = 0

(b) Hence solve, for 0° < x < 360°,

sinθtanθ = 3cosθ + 2

showing each stage of your working.
