1.

A rectangular cake dish is made by cutting out squares from the corners of a 7 inch by 10

inch rectangle piece of tin. What size squares must

be cut out in order to produce the

cake dish of maximum volume?

2.

A manufacturer of calculators is confident that they can sell 3 000 calculators per week at

a price of $12 each and believes that reducing the price by 20 cents each will incr

ease its

weekly sales by 200 calculators. How many calculators should the company produce

each week to maximize revenue?

The main runway at

Concordville

airport is 2 km long. An airplane, landing at

Concordville,

touches down at point T, and immediately starts to slow down. The point A is at the sou

thern

end of the runway. A marker is located at point P on the runway.

Not to scale

As the airplane slows down, its distance,

s,

from A, is given by

s

where

t

is the time in seconds after touchdown, and

c

metres

is the distance of T from A.

(a)

The airplane touches down 800 m from A, (

ie c

=

800).

(i)

Find the distance travelled by the airplane in the first 5 seconds after

touchdown.

(2)

(ii)

Write down an expression for the velocity of the airplane at time

t

s

econds after

touchdown, and hence find the velocity after 5 seconds.

(3)

The airplane passes the marker at P with a velocity of 36 m s
