for 11b

the parabola crosses the a-axis at 0 and 24

so you can put:

y= kx(x-24)

subsitute in a point e.g. (12,-5) (point A)

-5 = 12k(12-24)
-5 = 12k(-12)
-144k = -5
k = 5/144

y = 5/144x(x-24)

Therefore p = 5/144 and q = -24

Q12

Rearrange the equation using log rules:

log[e](2e)^3 - log[e](3e)Â²

Using log rules:

log[e][(2e)^3/(3e)Â²]
log[e][8e^3/9eÂ²]

Cancelling out eÂ² you get

log[e](8e/9)

Using log rules:

log[e]8e - log[e]9
log[e]8 + log[e]e - log[e]9

log[e]e = 1

So log[e]8 + 1 - log[e]9

Therefore in the form the question asks for:

1 + log[e]8 - log[e]9

While im at it, see in question 11 (a) part (ii),
What is the radius of the circle with centre B?
Is it 7 or 8?

Therefore p = 5/144 and q = -24

I understand the steps, but I dont understand why you can make q=(-24)?
the middle of the graph has only been moved 12 places to the right from the origin??

Beyond it, and us, shines a greater hope and a brighter future
Can't wait 'til the exams are over!
