Show that equation x 4 − 2 x 3 − 6 x 2 − 2 x + 1 = 0 can be transformed into a quadratic
equation in term of y.
Hence, solve the equation x 4 − 2 x 3 − 6 x 2 − 2 x + 1 = 0 . [8]

A certain food stall sells three kind of food, which are ‘nasi lemak’, ‘laksa’ and
‘lontong’. The price of each serving of the food is fixed with the price of each serving of
‘lontong’ equals to the total cost of ‘nasi lemak’ and ‘laksa’. A group of students pays
RM16 for 2 servings of ‘nasi lemak’, 3 servings of ‘laksa’ and 2 servings of ‘lontong’.
Another group of students pays RM19 for 5 servings of ‘nasi lemak’, 4 servings of
‘laksa’ and one serving of ‘lontong’.
Assuming that x, y and z are prices (in RM) of each serving of ‘nasi lemak’, ‘laksa’ and
‘lontong’ respectively. Obtain a system of linear equations based on the information
given.
Rewrite the equation in the matrix form; then solve the equation using the method of
matrix to obtain the price of each serving of ‘nasi lemak’, ‘laksa’ and ‘lontong’
respectively. [8]
