Codes can be formed by using any of the six characters from the set S , where   , , , , , S . a) Find the number of different five-character codes that can be formed. [3] b) How many of these five-character codes begin and end with ? [2] 2. The function     2 3 2 1 y q r x r x is obtained by transforming the function 2 y px qx r through the following transformations: Step 1: Translation of –1 unit parallel to the x -axis; Step 2: Scaling of factor 2 parallel to the y -axis. i) Show 4 2 3 2 p q r   . [3] ii) Hence, find the exact values of p , q and r by forming three equations involving p , q and r . [3] 3. A sequence is defined by 102 , 3 0 1 u u u n n . i) Find u 1 , u 2 , u 3 and u 4 . [1] ii) Obtain a conjecture for u n in the form [102 – f ( n )] for n = 1, 2, 3,4,… expressing f ( n ) in terms of n . [2] iii) Prove the result of u n by Mathematical Induction. [4]
