gradient 3 2 and y-intercept 1 3.
 b)
gradient 2 3 and y-intercept 1 3.
c)
gradient 3 2 and y-intercept 1 2.
 d)
gradient 2 3 and y-intercept 1 2.

Choice (a) is incorrect
Choice (b) is correct!
m = 5 3 7 4 = 2 3.
therefore,y = 2 3x + b 3 = 8 3 + b b = 1 3.
Choice (c) is incorrect
Choice (d) is incorrect
Find the equation of the straight line through (1,1) and (8,-2).
a)
3x 7y = 10
 b)
3x + 7y = 10
c)
3x + 7y = 10
 d)
3x 7y = 10

Choice (a) is incorrect
Choice (b) is incorrect
Choice (c) is correct!
Gradient = 3 7, y-intercept=10 7 .
Choice (d) is incorrect
The equation of the line through (1,1) and (3,4) is
a)
3y 2x 1 = 0
 b)
2y 3x 1 = 0
c)
3x 2y 1 = 0
 d)
2y + 3x 1 = 0

Choice (a) is incorrect
Choice (b) is incorrect
Choice (c) is correct!
m = 4 1 3 1 = 3 2
therefore,y = 3 2x + b 1 = 3 2 + b b = 1 2
therefore,y = 3 2x 1 2 2y = 3x 1 3x 2y 1 = 0.
Choice (d) is incorrect
Which of the following is the graph of y = 2(x + 1)2 + 4?
a)
PIC
 b)
PIC
c)
PIC
 d)
PIC

Choice (a) is incorrect
Not correct. This is the graph of 2(x + 1)2 + 4.
Choice (b) is incorrect
Not correct. This is the graph of 2(x 1)2 + 4.
Choice (c) is correct!
Choice (d) is incorrect
Not correct. This is the graph of (x + 1)2 + 4.
Which of the following expressions is equivalent to 3x2 3x + 7?

(3x + 3 2)2 + 5 2
 b)
3(x 1 2)2 + 31 4
c)
3(x + 1 2)2 + 31 4
 d)
3(x + 1)2 + 10
e)
None of the above

Choice (a) is incorrect
Incorrect answer.
Choice (b) is incorrect
Incorrect answer.
Choice (c) is correct!
Correct answer.
3x2 3x + 7 = 3(x2 + x) + 7 = 3(x2 + x + (1 2)2 (1 2)2) + 7 = 3(x + 1 2)2 + 3 4 + 7 = 3(x + 1 2)2 + 31 4
Choice (d) is incorrect
Incorrect answer.
Choice (e) is incorrect
Incorrect answer. One of the above responses is the correct answer.
PICWhich of the following functions describes the above graph?
a)
y = (x 1)2 + 2
 b)
y = 2x(2 x)
c)
y = 2(x + 1)2 + 2
 d)
y = 2(x 1)2 + 2
e)
None of the above.

Choice (a) is incorrect
Incorrect answer. The given graph is “taller“ or “skinnier“ than the graph of y = (x 1)2 + 2. You can see that this answer is incorrect by plotting some points.
Choice (b) is correct!
Correct. This expression is equal to y = 2(x 1)2 + 2.
Choice (c) is incorrect
Incorrect answer. This function has its turning point at x=-1
Choice (d) is incorrect
Incorrect answer. The graph of this function will point upwards.
Choice (e) is incorrect
Incorrect answer. Oe of the above responses is the correct answer.
Simplify e2xe5x2 .
a)
e7x2
 b)
e10x3
c)
ex(2+5x)
 d)
e2x + e5x2

Choice (a) is incorrect
Choice (b) is incorrect
Choice (c) is correct!
e2xe5x2 = e2x+5x2 = ex(2+5x).
Choice (d) is incorrect
Simplify ln ab3 c2 .
a)
lna + ln3b ln2c
 b)
lna + 3lnb 2lnc
c)
3lnab 2lnc
 d)
3lnab ln2c

Choice (a) is incorrect
Choice (b) is correct!
ln ab3 c2 = lnab3 lnc2 = lna + lnb3 2lnc = lna + 3lnb 2lnc.
Choice (c) is incorrect
Choice (d) is incorrect
