Given that sin y = xy + x2 , find



(i) Find the quotient and the remainder when 3x3 − 2x2 + x + 7 is divided by x2 − 2x + 5.


(ii) Hence, or otherwise, determine the values of the constants a and b such that, when [2] 3x3 − 2x2 + ax + b is divided by x2 − 2x + 5, there is no remainder. 4 (i) Use integration by parts to find (ii) Hence find

x sec2 x dx.

A curve is given parametrically by the equations x = t2 , y = 2t. (i) Find

dy in terms of t, giving your answer in its simplest form. dx


(ii) Show that the equation of the tangent to the curve at (p2 , 2p) is
