Hi all,

I have an exam in 6 hours, which I know nothing about. You can see I'm doing well already. All I know is that the questions are always the same, but the numbers change. From the past papers, I know the following questions (apart from the numbers being different) are going to be on there. If anyone could give me the solutions to the following, step by step, I would bake them a cake and ship it to them. Or, y'know, something else:

1. A line passes through the points (2,-7) and (6,1).

Find the equation of the line.

*I'm guessing just y-b = m(x-a) here? Obviously finding m through m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

2.A line makes an angle of 50 degrees with the positive direction of the x-axis., where the scales on the axis are equal.

Find the gradient of the line.

*Huh?

3. (a) write down the gradient of any line parallel to y=1/2x +3

(b) write down the gradient of a line perpendicular to y = -3x-1

A few of the other questions have diagrams, which I'm not sure how to put in. I'll leave those ones, and try and figure them out....

8 (a)Two functionsfandgare givem by f(x) = x(squared) -1 and g(x) = 3x-1.

Obtain an expression for f(g(x))

*I seriously have no idea for this one.

(b) Functionshandk, defined on suibtable domains, are given by h(x) = 4x and k(x) = cos x. Find k(h(x))

*once again, no idea.

9. Given y= 1+x4/x2any help would be great, thank you so much

find dy/dx
