READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST

If you have been given an Answer Booklet, follow the instructions on the front cover of the Booklet.
Write your Centre number, candidate number and name on all the work you hand in.
Write in dark blue or black pen.
You may use a soft pencil for any diagrams or graphs.
Do not use staples, paper clips, highlighters, glue or correction fluid.

Answerall the questions.
Give non-exact numerical answers correct to 3 significant figures, or 1 decimal place in the case of angles in

degrees, unless a different level of accuracy is specified in the question.
The use of an electronic calculator is expected, where appropriate.
You are reminded of the need for clear presentation in your answers.

At the end of the examination, fasten all your work securely together.
The number of marks is given in brackets [ ] at the end of each question or part question.
The total number of marks for this paper is 75.

Questions carrying smaller numbers of marks are printed earlier in the paper, and questions carrying larger
numbers of marks later in the paper.

The polynomialx3\u2212 2x+ a, wherea is a constant, is denoted by p(x). It is given that(x + 2) is a
factor of p(x).
(i)Find the value ofa.
[2]
(ii)Whena has this value, \ufb01nd the quadratic factor of p(x).

(i)Express cos\u03b8+(\u221a 3) sin\u03b8 in the formR cos(\u03b8 \u2212\u03b1), whereR> 0 and 0<\u03b1 <12\u03c0, giving the
exact values ofR and\u03b1.

The diagram shows a sectorAOB of a circle with centreO and radiusr. The angleAOB is\u03b1 radians,
where 0<\u03b1 <\u03c0. The area of triangleAOB is half the area of the sector.
(i)Show that\u03b1 satis\ufb01es the equation
x=2 sin x.
[2]
(ii)Verify by calculation that\u03b1 lies between12\u03c0 and23\u03c0.
[2]
(iii)Show that, if a sequence of values given by the iterative formula
xn+1=13\ue000xn+4 sin xn\ue001
converges, then it converges to a root of the equation in part(i).
[2]
(iv)Use this iterative formula, with initial valuex1= 1.8, to \ufb01nd\u03b1 correct to 2 decimal places. Give
the result of each iteration to 4 decimal places.
