## 1.1 FUNCTION NOTATIONS

Notes:
(i) A function is usually represented using letters in its lower case : f , g , h …..
(ii) Given the function f : x o 2 x  1 , we usually write it in the form f(x) = 2x + 1 before answering
any question.

## 2.2 The ROOTs of a quadratic Equation (Q.E.)

Note : “ROOT” refers to a specific value which satisfies the Q.E.

## By substitution, it is found that :

x = 1 , 12 + 2(1) – 3 = 0
Hence 1 is a root of the quadratic equation x2 + 2x – 3 = 0.
But if x = 2, 22 + 2(2) – 3 
We say that 2 is NOT a root of the given quadratic Equation.

## *** Usually asked in PAPER 2, Question 1. Test yourself:

Eg.. 2x + y = 4 1. 3x + y = 6 2. x+y= 3
(i) Characteristics of simultaneous equations:
(a) Involves TWO variables, usually in x and y. y = 4 – 2x y= y=
(b) Involves TWO equations : one linear and the other non- linear.
(ii) “ Solving simultaneous equations” means finding the values of x and corresponding y which satisfy BOTH the equations.
(iii) Methods of solving :: Eg.. 3x – y = 6 3. 2x – y = 3 4. x–y=6
(a) Starting from the LINEAR equation, express y in terms of x (or x in terms of y). 3x = 6+y
3x – 6 = y
(b) Substitute y (or x) into the second equation (which is non-linear) to obtain a quadratic equation in the form ax2 + bxx + c = 0.
