The solution is to choose a different starting point. Any number of possibilities will work . The function is a parabola and symmetric about x = 2.5. In order to find the correct root the starting point must be greater than 2.5. 2 marks 1 mark for explaining the problem 1 mark for any reasonable solution Question 4 Then the volume of the tank is V X * (0.7 X ) * (0.7 X 0.6) Formulation for solution requires the form f(x) = 0: X * (0.7 X ) * (0.7 X 0.6) 56 0 2 marks 1 mark for correct volume formula 1 mark for putting problem into the form f(x) = 0 If X is zero the volume will be too low. This gives one limit. The other is established by picking values until one gives a volume that is greater than 56. Ten is one possible choice (10 * 7 * 6.4 >> 56.3). Any number of correct answers are possible. 1 mark Matlab commands: f = @(x) x * 0.7 * x * (0.7 * x 0.6) x = fzero (f, [low, high]); fprintf ('The length, width and height are %fm, %f m and %f\n', x, x*0.7, x*0.7 0.6); 2 marks 0.5 for defining function (award mark if function matches earlier answer, even if wrong) 0.5 mark for using fzero 0.5 marks for limits (low and high should be as selected earlier) 0.5 marks for fprintf (don't be picky is student clearly has the basic idea) ...
