Graph of Functions, Long Questions (Question 1)


Question 1:
(a) The following table shows the corresponding values of x and y for the equation y = 24 x

Calculate the value of k and n.
 
(b) For this part of the question, use graph paper. You may use a flexible curve rule.
By using a scale of 2cm to 1 unit on the x-axis and 2cm to 5 units on the y-axis, draw the graph of  y = 24 x  for –4 ≤ x ≤ 4.
 
(c) From your graph, find
(i) The value of when x = 3.5,
(ii) The value of when y = –17.
 
(d) Draw a suitable straight line on your graph to find the value of x which satisfy the equation 2x2 + 5= 24 for –4 ≤ x ≤ 4.
 
Solution:
(a)
y = 24 x when x = 3 , k = 24 3 = 8 when x = 1.5 , n = 24 1.5 = 16

(b)



(c)
(i) From the graph, when x = 3.5, y = 7
(ii) From the graph, when y = –17, x = –1.4

(d)
 

y = 24 x -------------- (1) 2 x 2 + 5 x = 24 ------ (2) ( 2 ) ÷ x , 2 x + 5 = 24 x -------- (3) ( 1 ) ( 3 ) , y ( 2 x + 5 ) = 0 y = 2 x + 5

The suitable straight line is y = 2x + 5.
Determine the x-coordinate of the point of intersection of the curve and the straight line = 2x + 5.
