Question 2 Code: 9709/13/M/J/17/3, Topic: Coordinate geometry

Find the coordinates of the points of intersection of the curve $y=x^{\frac{2}{3}}-1$ with the curve $y=x^{\frac{1}{3}}+1$. $[4]$

Question 3 Code: 9709/12/M/J/10/4, Topic: Coordinate geometry


In the diagram, $A$ is the point $(-1,3)$ and $B$ is the point $(3,1)$. The line $L_{1}$ passes through $A$ and is parallel to $O B$. The line $L_{2}$ passes through $B$ and is perpendicular to $A B$. The lines $L_{1}$ and $L_{2}$ meet at $C$. Find the coordinates of $C$. $[6]$

Question 4 Code: 9709/12/M/J/20/6, Topic: Quadratics

The equation of a curve is $y=2 x^{2}+k x+k-1$, where $k$ is a constant.

$\text{(a)}$ Given that the line $y=2 x+3$ is a tangent to the curve, find the value of $k$. $[3]$

It is now given that $k=2$.

$\text{(b)}$ Express the equation of the curve in the form $y=2(x+a)^{2}+b$, where $a$ and $b$ are constants, and hence state the coordinates of the vertex of the curve. $[3]$

Question 5 Code: 9709/11/M/J/21/6, Topic: Quadratics

The equation of a curve is $y=(2 k-3) x^{2}-k x-(k-2)$, where $k$ is a constant. The line $y=3 x-4$ is a tangent to the curve.

Find the value of $k$ $[5]$

Question 6 Code: 9709/13/M/J/21/6, Topic: Functions

Functions $\mathrm{f}$ and $\mathrm{g}$ are both defined for $x \in \mathbb{R}$ and are given by

$$ \begin{aligned} &\mathrm{f}(x)=x^{2}-2 x+5 \\ &\mathrm{~g}(x)=x^{2}+4 x+13 \end{aligned} $$

$\text{(a)}$ By first expressing each of $\mathrm{f}(x)$ and $\mathrm{g}(x)$ in completed square form, express $\mathrm{g}(x)$ in the form $\mathrm{f}(x+p)+q$, where $p$ and $q$ are constants. $[4]$
