Question 1 Questions
Suppose that f is continuous everywhere and that 15f(x)dx = 6,253f(x)dx = 6. Find 21f(x)dx.

Correct!
Well done. We have 21f(x)dx = 12f(x)dx and also 15f(x)dx 25f(x)dx =12f(x)dx.
Incorrect. Please try again.
Remember that abf(x)dx = baf(x)dx and that abf(x)dx =acf(x)dx +cbf(x)dx.
Suppose that f and g are continuous everywhere and that 25(f(x) + 2g(x))dx = 3,52(f(x) g(x)) = 1. Find 25(2f(x) 5g(x))dx.

Correct!
Incorrect. Please try again.
The data gives us 25(f + 2g) = 3 and 25(f g) = 1. Also, 2f 5g = 3(f g) (f + 2g). Now try the calculation again!
The function g is a continuous function and a < b. Tick each correct statement in the list of options. (Zero or more options can be correct)
a)
abg(x)dx ab|g(x)|dx
b)
abg(x)dx abg(x)dx
c)

A particle accelerates from rest in a straight line over a 6 second period. The graph of its acceleration, f(t) at time t, from t = 0 seconds to t = 6 seconds, is shown below. At what time after the start does the particle reach maximum velocity?
PIC

Correct!
Well done! Whenever the graph of acceleration is positive, the velocity is increasing. Since the acceleration is zero at t = 5, this marks the time of maximum velocity.
Incorrect. Please try again.
Remember that acceleration is the derivative of velocity, and that an increasing function has positive derivative.
