(x^2+5x+1)sqroot(2x^3+mx^2+nx+11)=(2x-5)
remainder:30x+16
(x^2+5x+1)(2x-5)
=2x^3+10x^2+2x-5x^2-25x-5
=2x^3+10x^2-5x^2-25x-5
=2x^3+5x^2-23x+30x+16-5
=2x^3+5x^2+7x+11
Therefore m=5, n=7

pr(age)=4/5
pr(fully)=3/4
pr(must)=2/3
pr(age not admitted)=1-4/5
=1/5
pr(fully not admitted)=1-3/4
=1/4
pr(must not admitted)=1-2/3
=1/3
Therefore pr(none admitted)=1/5*1/4*1/3
=1/60
5b)
pr(only age and fully gained admission)=4/5*3/4*1/3
=1/5

11a)
Given:
f(x)={(4x-x^2)dx
f(x)=2x^2 – x^3/3 + K
f(3)=2(3)^2 – (3)^2/3 + K =21
18 – 9 + K=11
9+K=21
K=21-9
K=12
Therefore
f(x)= -x^3 + 2x^2 + 12

1/1-cos tita + 1/1+cos tita
=1+cos tita + 1-cos tita//(1-cos tita) (1+cos tita)
= 2/1+cos tita – cos tita – cos^2 tita
= 2/1-cos^2 tita
Recall that :
Cos^2 tita + sin^2 tita = 1
.:. Cos^2 tita = 1-sin^2 tita
.:. 1/1-cos^2 tita + 1/1+cos tita
= 2/1-(1-sin^2 tita)

At stationary points,
dy/dx=0.
y=x^0(x-3)
Let u=x^2,v=x-3.
du/dx=2x dv/dx=1.
dy/dx= Udv/dx + Vdu/dx
dy/dx=x^2(1)+(x-3)(2x)
.:. dy/dx=x^2+2x^2-6x
dy/dx=3x^2-6x
At stationary point,
dy/dx=0..
.:.3x^2-6x=0
Equation of line=> 3x^2-6x=0

Using lami’s theory
T1/sin60=T2/sin30
48N/sin60=T2/sin30
48N/0.8660=T2/0.5
0.5(48)/0.8660=T2(0.8660)/0.8660
T2=24/0.8660
T2=27.7N
