2. A curve C has equation
y = 3/(5 - 3x)2
, x ≠ 5/3
The point P on C has x-coordinate 2. Find an equation of the normal to C at P in the form ax + by + c = 0, where a, b and c are integers.
C3 Mathematics Edexcel June 2010 Question 3
3. f(x) = 4cosec x - 4x + 1, where x is in radians.
(a) Show that there is a root α of f(x) = 0 in the interval [1.2, 1.3].
(b) Show that the equation f(x) = 0 can be written in the form
x = 1/sin x + 1/4
(c) Use the iterative formula
= 1/sin xn
+ 1/4, x0
to calculate the values of x1
, giving your answers to 4 decimal places.
(d) By considering the change of sign of f(x) in a suitable interval, verify that α = 1.291 correct to 3 decimal places.
