Anderson Junior College Preliminary Examination 2007 H2 Mathematics Paper 2 Section A: Pure Mathematics (40 marks) 1 a) Differentiate 13 tan (ln ) x with respect to x. [2] b) The curve C has parametric equations 22 2 ,1 x ty t t t = += + , where t is a non-zero parameter. (i) Show that the gradient of the curve at any point ( x,y ) satisfies the equation 2 3 d( 2 1 ) d2 2 y tt xt = . [2] (ii) The line x = p is a tangent to the curve C. By using the result in (i), find the exact value of p. [2] 2 . Express ( in the form ) 23 r + 2( 1) ( rA r B r + ++ , where A and B are constants. Using the method of difference, find in terms of n .

In an Argand diagram, the point A represents the fixed complex number a , where 0a r g ( ) 2 a π << . The complex numbers z and w are such that 2i za a −= and ww i a =+ . Sketch, in a single diagram, the loci of the points representing z and w [3] Find a) the minimum value of zw in terms of a , [1] b) the range of values of 1 arg z ⎛⎞ ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ in terms of arg( a ).
