Section A [45 marks]
Answer all questions in this section.
1. Sketch the graph of

and . Let, ()

and use the

intermediate value theorem to show that f(x) = 0 for the interval n < x < n + 1 where n and
n + 1 are consecutive integers to be determined. If (

) , give a reason why would

you expect the value of

to be less than 1.5 and verify that this is indeed true. [8 marks]
2. Show that the parametric equations and is a circle.

in terms of t. [4 marks]
Use as the equation of the tangent to the circle that passes through the origin. By
substituting x, y, and m with suitable expressions in terms of t, shows that the point of
contact of a tangent to the circle is

Deduce that the equations of the tangents

drawn from the origin to the circle are

3. Given that , find

in terms of x and y. Use

to find the
approximate value of y, in terms of h, when x = 1 + h, where the value of h is small.
