QUESTIONS (ANSWER ALL) 1. Given that

3 x , h( x ) =  2 x ,

x≤0 x>0

(i) Find the domain and codomain for h(x) . (ii) Determine whether h(x) is a function (iii) Reflect h(x) on line y = x . Is the transformed h(x) a function? Use the vertical line test to verify your answer. [15m] 2. Throughout some research studies, it was found that the average revenue of an industrial company per year is given by

R(t ) = −8t 2 + 31t + 6000
where R represents the revenue earned (in RM) at tth year . (i) Sketch R to determine the domain and range of the function. (ii) Sketch function G when the R function is transformed by (a) G (t ) = R(2t + 1) (b) G (t ) = 2 R (t ) + 1 [15m] 3. The graph of function f is shown below.

5. a) An arrow is shot up towards the moon at a velocity of 70 km/h. If H (t ) is the distance between the arrow and the moon (measured in thousand km) after t hour, modeled as H (t ) = 0.99t 2 − 70t . What is the velocity when the arrow hits the moon? b) What is the average velocity of the arrow for t between 35 and 45 seconds? [15m]
