1) Find the equation of the line through the origin which is parallel to the line 4x - 27 - 5 = 0

------------------------------------------------------

2) The equation of a curve is y = (x-3)(x+4). Find the gradient of the curve:

a) at the point the curve crosses the y-axis

b) at each of the points where the curve crosses the x-axis

------------------------------------------------------

3) Find the coordinates of the point(s) on the curve y=3x^3 - x + 8 at which the gradient is

a) 8

b) 0

------------------------------------------------------

4) The equation of a curve s=4t^2 +5t. Find the gradient of the normal at each of the points where the curve crosses the t-axis.

------------------------------------------------------

5) If the gradient of a curve is y=2x^2 -3x -2. Find

a) the gradient at the point where x=0

b) the co-ordinates of the point where y=0

c) the gradient at each of the points found in b)

Patrick's right dude. There's not even like a please or thank you there.

Student: "What's a corollary?"

Lecturer: "What's a corollary? It's like when a theorem has a child. And names it corollary."

lol sorry for about this! i just wanted some1 to attempt one of the question so I can have some idea what you do. I know it just seem rude for me to post a whole bunch of qus. So im sorry about that.

and btw this is not home-work just going through past papers and picking the questions I cannot do. As you can see there all about gradients and finding the co-ordinates.

regards,

Looking back I made some typing mistakes! in 1) and 5)

1) equation should be 4x - 2y - 5 = 0

**5) If the 'equation' of a curve is y=2x^2 -3x -2. Find**

**a) the gradient at the point where x=0b) the co-ordinates of the point where y=0c) the gradient at each of the points found in b)**

I mainly need help on question 5)

As I went over this topic last night and can do most of them now.

Regards,
