The two masses are released at the same instant. (c) Find the value of t when they are first at the same distance below the ceiling. (2) (d) In the first three seconds, how many times are the two masses at the same height? (2) (Total 16 marks) 395 586. It is claimed that the masses of a population of lions are normally distributed with a mean mass of 310 kg and a standard deviation of 30 kg. (a) Calculate the probability that a lion selected at random will have a mass of 350 kg or more. (2) (b) The probability that the mass of a lion lies between a and b is 0.95, where a and b are symmetric about the mean. Find the value of a and of b. (3) (Total 5 marks) 587. Consider the function f given by f(x) = 2 x 2 – 13x + 20 , ( x – 1) 2 x ≠ 1. A part of the graph of f is given below. y 0 x The graph has a vertical asymptote and a horizontal asymptote, as shown. (a) Write down the equation of the vertical asymptote. (1) 396 (b) f(100) = 1.91 f(–100) = 2.09 f(1000) = 1.99 (i) Evaluate f(–1000). (ii) Write down the equation of the horizontal asymptote. (2) (c) Show that f′(x) = 9 x – 27 (x – 1)3 , x ≠ 1. (3) The second derivative is given by f′′(x) = (d) 72 – 18 x , ( x – 1) 4 x ≠ 1. Using values of f′(x) and f′′(x) explain why a minimum must occur at x = 3. (2) (e) There is a point of inflexion on the graph of f. Write down the coordinates of this point.
