Winter vacations Worksheet Y1- HL 1. For what values of k will the following system of equations have a unique solution?

x+ 2y -3z = 5 ; 2x –y –z = 8 ; kx + y + 2z = 14

2. Express as a single log and then evaluate without using a calculator! a) log 20 + log 5 b) log 2 12 + 2 log 2 2 − log 2 6 d) 2 log 3 6 − (2 log 3 2 + 2 log 3 3)

3. Evaluate to 3sf: a) log 6 30

b) log1/2 3

4. Solve: a) log 5 3x + 2 log 5 x = log 5 162 − log 5 2 b) 4 11− x = 26 2 c) 4 x − 3 × 8 x = 0 d) 2 ln x + ln(2 x + 5) − ln x = ln 12e − ln 4e
