y = f(x) = 2 lnx (lnx)
2
y = 0 gives (lnx)(2 lnx) = 0
lnx = 0 or 2
x = 1 or e
2
[Note: May use GC to write e
2
correct to 3 sf since
question did not ask for exact values.]

The line 0 y = cuts y = f(x) at 2 points.
Therefore f is not a one-one function.
Thus
1
f

## does not exist.

dy/dx = (2/x) 2(lnx)/x = 0 lnx = 1 x = e (so maximum point is at (e, 1))
h
1
exists when greatest possible a is e. [May write a = 2.72 (3 sf) as question did not ask for exact value.]

To find h
1
, let y = h(x) so that x = h
1
(y) where 0 < x e and y 1.
Then y = h(x) = 2 lnx (lnx)
2

Cannot factorise denominator so
cannot use Partial Fractions
method. Instead, use MF15 and
ln() since there is an x
2
in the
denominator.
LIATE method breaks down as
both terms are Algebraic.
Choose u such that the powers
of x reduce with each
differentiation and choose
something which can be
integrated for dv/dx.

Choose u = x
and dv/dx = \(a x

Since P(0) is true and P(k) is true P(k+1) is true, by the Principle of Mathematical Induction,
we conclude that P(0), P(1), P(2), P(3), are all true. Hence P(n) is true for all integers 0 n > .

Either work out values yourself,
Or use GC MODE SEQ to find the
values.

Note that
the answers in the GC TABLE are
in decimals so you have to convert
them to fractions yourself,
you should re-write the expression
into u(n) =

first so that
it is easier to key into the GC,
you should use the BLUE u above
the 7 in your GC, not the green U.

7 Plot of y against x.
Highest y = 6.3; Lowest y = 2.7
Highest x = 12.3; Lowest x = 4.4
Correlation coefficient = r = 0.263

A linear model is not appropriate as the scatter diagram
shows that the points are not close to a straight line and
the value of r is quite close to 0.

7

For y = ax
2
+ b, value of r = 0.913
For y = a ln x + b, value of r = 0.971
Therefore, (b) y = a ln x + b is a better model as the value of r in (b) is closer to 1 than for (a).

Line of regression is y = 11.042 948 39 2.687 231 256 ln x
When y = 6.1, ln x = 1.839 420 548 x = 6.29 (3 sf) Accept x = 6.3 (1 dec place)

This estimate is valid since the value of r is close to 1 and the value of y used in within the
range of experimental data (4.5 y 6.3).
Or, may say that x comes from interpolation instead of within the range of experimental data.
