    Using Work Energy Principle,

    1. Let the starting point be A and the end point be C.

    2. List down Energies and Work at point A and C

    Point A:
    Ep = 0 J
    Ek = 1/2 × 840 × 14^2 = 82320 J
    Work done against resistive force = 0 J

    Point B:
    Height from the ground = 8sin30 - 10sin20 = 0.58m
    Ep = 840 × 10 × 0.58 = 4872 J
    Ek = 1/2 × 840 × v^2
    Work done against resistive force = from part i we got it as 11520 J

    3. Use the work - energy equation and solve for v

    Point A = Point B

    82320 = 4872 + 420v^2 + 11520

    Thus, v = 12.5 m/s (3sf)

    HI guys, so I wrote my AS level pure math 1 paper today and it was easy but I couldn't get a 6 marks question right :'((
    they gave: y= [(x^3+x^2)]^0.5
    and in the question, the very first thing we had to do was differentiate it. Now I'm usually good at differentiation. I can do the product rule, quotient rule and chain rule even. However I had this assumption, god knows why that in AS level at least, we can only apply the chain rule for linear equations. Then this question suddenly comes up and messes my whole grade up. I've searched and people use substitution method which is A level. Have you guys learnt this level of differentiation in your AS level too? or was it just me who didn't know?

    Sorry to hear that but you can differentiate it directly
    Dy/dx=3x^3/[x^3+x^2]^0.5
    We use quotient rule when we divide two different functions e.g x/x^2
    We use product rule when we multiply two different functions e.g 3x.Cosx
    We use chain rule when we three variables e.g x, y, t
    Dy/Dx=Dy/Dt x Dt/dx.
    Btw in differentiation we can differentiate linear or non linear equations.

    Yes, I rechecked with my teacher too. The real fact was that you can only apply the chain rule to a linear equation while integrating. Stupid, stupid mistake.

    This could be done with chain rule

    (a)
    Number of terms in the brackets = {1,2,3,...}
    Number of terms in the first n brackets = sum of terms up to the nth bracket = sum of numbers from 1 up to n
    So you use [n(n+1)]/2 to get that sum

    (b)
    Only the terms = {1,4,7,10,...}
    It's a arithmetic progression with this formula:
    t = 1+ (p-1)3
    Were p is the position of the term t
    The last term in the nth bracket will have overall position p = number of terms up to the nth bracket
    We already have this from (a)

    p = [n(n+1)]/2

    Substitute p:
    t = 1+ ( ([n(n+1)]/2) -1)3

    Simplify:
    t = (3n^2+3n-4)/2

    (c)
    We already have the formula for the last term in the nth bracket from (b)
    (3n^2+3n-4)/2 > 628

    solve for n:
    3n^2+3n-1260 > 0
    (n-20)(n+21) > 0
    n > 20 or n <-21

    Therefore, least value of n = 21

    Please copy paste the actual question next time.

    Q:In a group of 30 teenagers, 13 of the 18 males watch ‘Kops are Kids’ on television and 3 of the 12 females watch ‘Kops are Kids’.
    (i) Find the probability that a person chosen at random from the group is either female or watches ‘Kops are Kids’ or both.

    Ans:
    The group can be divided into four:
    13 - M watch
    5 - M don't watch
    3 - F watch
    9 - F don't watch

    P(F or watch or both) = N(F or watch or both)/N(total)
    = (3 + 9 + 13)/30
    = 0.833

    You can also look at it as:
    P(F or watch or both) = 1 - P( NOT [F or watch or both])
    NOT [F or watch or both] == [M don't watch]
    = 1 -P(M don't watch)
    = 1 - 5/30
    =0.833

    Not sure what you mean by men not being mentioned. But it's a similar idea.

    M H
    M notH
    F H
    F notH

    p(F or H or F H) = 1 - p(M notH)
    Since M notH is the only group that won't be counted in (F or H or F H).
    = 1 -(3/4)(2/5)

    You're right for the shading part. When you shade below the line for arg z <_ -pi/4 , then 2+rt2 makes sense

    STATS (Can someone help?)
    The random variable X has the distribution B (20,p)
    Given that p=0.7 and P(X≥x) >0.1, find the greatest possible value of x.
    Is there a straight forward method rather than the long method of trying?

    The answer is 17 just in case.
    Thanks :)
