How would you do this?
13.Ten points are chosen in a plane, not three of which are collinear.
a) How many lines can be drawn through pairs of the points?
b) How many triangles can be drawn if each of the vertices is at one of the given points
c) How many of the triangles have a particular point as one of the vertices?
d) How many of the triangles have two particular points making up one of the sides?

14.There are ten points in a plane, five of which are collinear. No other sets of three of these points is collinear.
a) How many sets of three points can be selected from those five that are collinear?
b) How many triangles can be formed using the ten points as vertices?

I doubt that these were designed for MX1 students...




Hopefully I didn't mess up...

Haha thank you!! Would those type of questions pop up in a 3u exam?
I also  need help with probability questions.
5. From a standard pack of 52 cards, three are selected at random. Find that probability that:
a) They are the jack of spades, the two of clubs and the seven of diamonds
b) all 3 are aces
c) they are all diamonds
d) they are all of the same suit
e) they are picture cards
f) two are red and one is black
g) one is a seven, one is an eight and one is a nine
h) two are 7s and one is a 6
i) exactly one is a diamonds
j) at least two of them are diamonds

Do past papers.

They tell you stuff about the derivatives.

y' = 3ax^2+2bx+c

y" = 6ax + 2b

And then when x=-1:
y=4
y'=8
y"=-24

Just break it down. It's just tedious wording, so think about everything one at a time.

(After subbing, you should get simultaneous equations)

I attempted to do q44 but i am not sure what to.
I also wanted to ask about differentiating q6. Apparently the answer in the book is 120x +17

Your answer is the correct one for Q6. The book made a bizarre typo there.

With your simultaneous equations, use (1) and (3) to get rid of the c instead of the b

I attempted to solve q44 again.
But i got the wrong answers again.
In the answers a= 5 , b=3, c=-1

Equation 3 is wrong

Should be -a+b-c+5 = 4.
Check the question again.

However putting your wrong equation into WolframAlpha shows that your final answer was correct given the mistake you made earlier on.

Hi I am back  :D.
I've been working on this question back i am unable to get the answer for parts c, d and e
