### Re: Questions

For Q1, you'll want to set up the equation
(do you see why?).

For Q2, could you double-check what the exact wording of the question is? (I'm not sure what "derivative of f(1)" means here.) As a guess, I suspect that you want the slope of the tangent line at x = 1. If so, you should use the fact that the product of the slopes of the normal and tangent line are -1.

For Q3, try drawing a line on some paper and plot A, B, C (in that order). Then plot the midpoints M, N, and assume for simplicity that BC has length 1. Can you determine the lengths of MB and BN, and therefore deduce the ratio MN:BC?

For Q4, first work out where this function cuts the x-axis (it does so in two places -- don't forget that it's symmetric about the y-axis). Integrating will then give you the answer.

### Re: Questions

Because the question says that we want to share out
of the original number, and
of the original number. The 120 rs is not a proportion of anything, it is just a number.

### Re: Questions

I'm getting 36 for the area -- so it seems that, as you point out, the answers do not match. Did you copy the question/options correctly?

### Re: Questions

Correct, but the last term should say 29/7.

Now, what is the slope of that line?

### Re: Questions

Correct. So the slope of the normal is -1/7.

Using this, what is the slope of the tangent line at that point?

### Re: Questions

There is no need to draw anything. The tangent line and the normal line are perpendicular, and their slopes multiply to give -1. If the slope of the normal is -1/7, can you find the slope of the tangent line?
