(Total 10 marks) 246. Note: Radians are used throughout this question.
(a) Draw the graph of y = π + x cos x, 0 ≤ x ≤ 5, on millimetre square graph paper, using a
scale of 2 cm per unit. Make clear
(i) the integer values of x and y on each axis; (ii) the approximate positions of the x-intercepts and the turning points.
(5) (b) Without the use of a calculator, show that π is a solution of the equation
π + x cos x = 0.
(3) 169 (c) Find another solution of the equation π + x cos x = 0 for 0 ≤ x ≤ 5, giving your answer to
six significant figures.
(2) (d) Let R be the region enclosed by the graph and the axes for 0 ≤ x ≤ π. Shade R on your
diagram, and write down an integral which represents the area of R .
(2) (e) Evaluate the integral in part (d) to an accuracy of six significant figures. (If you consider
it necessary, you can make use of the result
( x sin x + cos x ) = x cos x .)
