Ahhhh I totally get it.
Thanks so much!
And if it was f(x) = f(-x) there would be a max turning point at (-3,7)??
Correct, because even function symmetry is about the \(y\)-axis, so it's just a reflection.

Hey People,
I am learning the product rule atm however i cannot solve this question:

-2(x^2+x+1)^3  x.

\begin{align*}
u&=x^2+x+1\\
u^\prime &= 2x+1\\
v &= x\\
v^\prime &= 1
\end{align*}
\begin{align*}
\therefore \frac{d}{dx} -2(x^2+x+1)^3 x &= -2 \frac{d}{dx} (x^2+x+1)^3 x\\
&= -2 \left[x (2x+1) + (x^2+x+1) \right]
\end{align*}
You could probably simplify this further.

Some useful things to keep in mind!

Use these 2 pieces of information to progress through the proof - let me know how you go!

Hey there!

All there is to the index law is on your reference sheet.

For reference, this is what it has:



Hope this helps :)

please help with this question:

Without finding the point of intersection, find the equation of the line which passes through the point of intersection of 7x+3y-13=0 and 3x+2y-12=0, and also passes through D(1.5, -1)

Hi, with this question I understand the concept but I cannot seem to simplify the equation and the working of the answers isn't helping so i would love an explanation.
Find the value of p, where x=p is a vertical line that divides the area between y=√x, x=16 and the x-axis into 2 equal parts.

Thanks in advance :)

Solve for p from there because you know what the total area is from the first integral

Hello everyone,

I am having a bit of trouble with these exponential equations (see attached) and was wondering if anyone could please step me through how to do them?
Also, do you times the front and the end numbers (outside of the brackets) together? Or do you just leave them?

Thankyou!

If you're not allowed to do it the classic way, then you more or less have no choice but to use the mythical 'k'-method. Incredibly disgusting, but again, no choice.
\[ \text{The equation will take the form}\\ 7x+3y-13 + k(3x+2y-12) = 0. \]
\[\text{If the point }D\left( \frac32, -1\right) \text{lies on the line, then upon substituting in we obtain}\\ 7(1.5)+3(-1)-13 + k(3(1.5)+2(-1)-12) = 0 \implies \boxed{k=-\frac{11}{19}}.\]
\[ \text{Hence the equation of the line will be}\\ 7x+3y-13 - \frac{11}{19}(3x+2y-12)=0\\ \text{which you can multiply by 19, then expand and simplify.} \]

You haven't specified what you want me to do for question j.

With that sketch in question a, you should first note that \( f(x)=a^x\) has asymptote \(y=0\). So in your case, \(f(x) =4(3^x) + 1\) has asymptote \(y=1\). (Which can be properly verified - as \(x\to \infty\), it is clear that there is no asymptote. But as \(x\to -\infty\), we have \(4(3^x)+1 \to 0 + 1 = 1\).

Now the \(4\) gets multiplied to the entire exponential term, i.e. the \(3^x\) bit. So it forms some kind of a stretch (dilation) to just the exponential - it doesn't move the asymptote around. As an example, your \(y\)-intercept is now at \(y=4(1)+1 = 5\), instead of at \(y=2\).

In general, graphically showing the extra factor in front isn't exactly possible. Some points need to be plotted (and the graph drawn to scale) for it to have a noticeable impact. But if you try plotting on Desmos/GeoGebra, it will be 100% clear that some kind of stretching is happening.

Cheers Rui!
I have re looked over the question and it makes much more sense now, thanks for the thorough explanation!  ;D

With regards to Question j I have attached the original question of what to do (Sorry)

Thanks Again!
