(a) ∵ AB : BC : CA = 5 : 4 : 3

∴ ACB : BAC : ABC = 5 : 4 : 3 (arcs prop to s at


circumference)

Let ACB = 5k, BAC = 4k and ABC = 3k

Then, 5k + 4k + 3k = 180

k = 15

So, ABC = 45

∵ D is the mid-point of AC

∴ ABD = CBD (equal chords, equal arcs)

Hence, ABD =  45

= 22.5

(b) ADB = ACB

RPQ = 26.6 (corr to the nearest 0.1)

(b) When QR = 6 cm PR = 12 cm.

Hence, PQ2 = 62 + 122

PQ = 13.42 cm

So, OP = 6.7 cm (corr to the nearest 0.1 cm)

(a) Note that OAP = 90 and OBP = 90 (tangent property)

Consider the sum of interior angles in OAPB, we have

AOB + APB + 90 + 90 = 360

1
AOB + AOB = 180
2

AOB = 120

(b) APB = AOB
2

= 60

∵ AP = BP (tangent property)

∴ PAB = PBA (base s, isos )

180  60
PBA =
2

= 60

Since PBA = APB, we have AB = AP (side opp. eq. s)

(a) ∵ 2 – i is a root of x2 + ax + b = 0

 Method I:

[x-(2-i)][x-(2+i)]

= (x-2+i)(x-2-i)

= x2 - 4x + 5

By comparing coef,
a = -4 , b= 5

 Method II:

root = 2 - i

x2 + ax + b = 0

(2-i)2 + a(2-i) + b = 0

3 + 2a + b - i(4+a) = 0

3 + 2a + b = 0 -------------------------- (1)

4+a=0 -------------------------- (2)

∴ a = -4

b=5

(a) OM  AC (line joining centre and mid-point of chord  chord)

Hence, OA2 = OM2 + MA2  (1)

and OP2 = OM2 + MP2  (2)

(1) – (2): OA2 – OP2 = MA2 – MP2

= (MA + MP)  (MA – MP)

= AP  (MC - MP)

= AP  PC

Similarly, BP  PD = OB2 – OP2

Since OA = OB (radii), we have

AP  PC = BP  PD

(a) The coordinates of V are (2, 12)

∵ The graph passes through (4, 0) and (2, 12)

16a  4b  0

∴ 
4a  2b  12

Solving, we have a = -3 and b = 12.

Alternative Solution

∵ The x-intercept of the graph are 0 and 4

∴ The equation of the graph can be expressed as y = a(x -


0)(x - 4)

As the graph passes through (2, 12),

we have 2(2 - 4)a = 12

a = -3

and b = -4a

= 12

(b) The vertex of y = a(x - h)2 + k is (h, k)

Hence, h = 2 and k = 12
