The answer is A.
5 When the expression for C is expanded it does not contain
an x
5
term. The first three terms contain x
8
, x

repeated factor
xintercept at (3, 0)
yintercept at (0, 6)
The answer is B.
8 Negative cubic A or D
Point of inflection is (a, b)
a < 0 so,
y = (x + a)

4 a For x + 2 to be a factor, P(2) = 0.

Therefore the range is [3, 27]
The answer is D.
6 3x + ay = 12
ax + 3y = 4a
If there are infinitely many solutions
then the equations must be equivalent.
Rewrite each so that the coefficient of

ax + 3y = 4a x +

Extended response
1 a v = at + b
Rate of change =
200
2
= 100 km/h
Therefore, a = 100
so v = 100t + b.
At t = 1, v = 0
0 = 100 1 + b
b = 100.
Hence, v = 100t 100
b v = 119
119 = 100t 100
219 = 100t
t =

100

Hence 2:11 pm
c v = 269
269 = 100t 100
t =

100
= 3.69 hours = 3 hours 42 min.
Hence 3:42 pm
d It predicts that the wind speed will
increase indefinitely. It also
predicts a negative speed at noon.
These problems could be avoided
simply by restricting the domain to
be [1, 3.69] for example.
e i If the wind peaked at 5 pm then
(5, 256) would be a turning
point.
In turning point form the rule
for the quadratic model would
be v(t) = a(t 5)
2
+ 256.
Since v(1) = 0,
0 = a(1 5)
2
+ 256
256 = 16a
a =
256
16
= 16
the model is v(t) = 16(t 5)
2
+ 256.
Using this model:
v(3) = 16 (2)
2
+ 256
= 192 km/hour. This is reasonably
close to the recorded value of
200 km/hour.
ii Predicted value is v(12)
= 16 7
2
+ 256
= 528 km/hour. Clearly the
model is inadequate.
f i tintercepts when t = 1, 13
v
2
(t) = a(t 1)(t 13).
t = 5, v = 256 km/h.
Using this
256 = a (5 4) (5 13)
256 = 32a
a = 8
The model is
v
2
(t) = 8(t 1)(t 13).
ii Check model for t = 3.
v
2
(3) = 8(3 1)(3 13)
= 8 2 10
= 160 km/hour.
Compared with actual value of
200 km/hour, the model is not
adequate. The maximum wind
speed is predicted at t = 7
(t value of the TP):
v
2
(7) = 8(7 1)(7 13)
= 8 6 6
= 288 km/hour which is
later and faster than the
actual data.
g The full set of data is:

Using cubic regression and CAS,
we get
v

27x
2
+ 195x 169.
h i The graph is symmetrical, so the
vertical asymptote is x =

2
x = 250
ii We need an estimate for the
horizontal asymptote. It seems
reasonable to use v = 0.
v(x) =

x
v(0) 30
30 =

( 250)

a = 30 (250)

4 a The function can be divided into two onetoone functions
over the domains (, 2] and [2, ). Any onetoone
function would need its domain to be contained in one of

It is not a onetoone function but could be made onetoone
by splitting the domain into either R
+
{0} or R
{0}, the
right and left arms of the parabola respectively.
a The answer is D.
b The positive set above is R
+
{0} and so [0, ) satisfies.
The answer is C.
7 a Select either the right half of the parabola or the left half.
These will both form onetoone functions, So f
1
exists.
The largest domain is (, 0] or [0, ).
b Right half of parabola has domain [3, ]. Left half has
domain (, 3]. Solution [3, ).
c Divide the graph into three sections with vertical lines
through x = 3 and x = 1. Each section is onetoone,
therefore has an inverse function f
1
.
The largest domain is [1, ).
d The function is onetoone, with domain (0, ). So f
1
exists over the whole domain (0, ), or R
+
.
e The function is onetoone, with domain R. So f
1
exists
over the entire domain R.
f The function can be split into two onetoone functions
each with an inverse. So f
1
exists over the domains
[9, 0] or [0, 9].
g The function can be split into two onetoone functions by
a vertical line through x = 5. So f
1
exists over the
domains [1, 5] or [5, 9].
h The yaxis divides f(x) into two onetoone functions. So
f
1
exists over (, 0) or (0, ).
i The vertical line x = 5 divides f(x) into two onetoone
functions, so f
1
exists over the domain (, 5) or (5, ).

functions.
The right part has domain [2, ).
The answer is A.

The function is onetoone, and hence has an inverse
function, over (, 5] or [5, ).
The answer is E.

6 Basic graph is sine or cosine.
Period is T, so A and E are eliminated.
Amplitude is 2a so C is eliminated.
Check B amplitude of 2a produces reflected cosine
graph with no horizontal translation.
This fits
Check D Need a sine graph translated

to the right.
In this case the translation has to be a function of T so D
cannot be correct.
The answer is B.
7 If x = a is one solution to an equation of the form
cos(2x) = k, then x = a will also be a solution. The third
solution will be a period beyond x = a at x = a + .
So the two adjacent solutions are x = a and x = a + . The

The answer is C.
3 a g(x) < 0 if x < 0
g(x) = 0 if x = 0
g(x) > 0 if x > 0
b g(x) > 0 if x < 0

g(x) = 0 if x = 3
g(x) > 0 if x > 3
e g(x) > 0 if x < 2
g(x) = 0 if x = 2
g(x) < 0 if x > 2
4 a f (x) > 0 if x < 0 and the graph is
becoming less sleep
f (x) = 0 if x = 0
f (x) < 0 if x > 0
Hence f (x) is always decreasing.
The answer is B.
b f (x) > 0 if x < 0
f (x) = 0 if x = 0
f (x) < 0 if x > 0
The answer is A.
5 a f (x) > 0 for 3 < x < 2
f (x) = 0 for x = 3 and x = 2
f (x) < 0 for x < 3 and x > 2
Since f (x) is cubic, f (x) is
quadratic (parabola).

6 a Positive gradient occurs when f (x)
slopes upward from left to right,
that is x < 1 and x > 2.
The answer is D.
b Negative gradient occurs when f (x)
slopes downward from left to right
that is 1 < x < 2.
The answer is C.
c f (x) > 0 for x < 1 and x > 2
f (x) < 0 for 1 < x < 2

f (x) = 2 for all x > 2
Hence, the derivative function jumps at x = 2

Therefore f (x) is discontinuous at x = 2
