Question 1 Code: 9709/31/M/J/14/10, Topic: Differentiation


The diagram shows the curve $y=10 \mathrm{e}^{-\frac{1}{2} x} \sin 4 x$ for $x \geqslant 0$. The stationary points are labelled $T_{1}, T_{2}$, $T_{3}, \ldots$ as shown.

$\text{(i)}$ Find the $x$-coordinates of $T_{1}$ and $T_{2}$, giving each $x$-coordinate correct to 3 decimal places. $[6]$

$\text{(ii)}$ It is given that the $x$-coordinate of $T_{n}$ is greater than 25. Find the least possible value of $n$. $[4]$

Question 2 Code: 9709/32/M/J/14/10, Topic: Vectors
