1.     Use logarithms to solve the equation $5^{3−2x} = 4(7^{x})$, giving your answer correct to 3 decimal places.

2.     Show that $\displaystyle \int_{0}^{\frac{1}{4}\pi} x^{2} \cos 2x \textrm{d}x = \frac{1}{32}(\pi^{2} \ – \ 8)$.

5.     The variables x and y satisfy the differential equation
$$\displaystyle (x+1)y \frac{\textrm{d}y}{\textrm{d}x}= y^2 + 5.$$
It is given that $y = 2$ when $x = 0$. Solve the differential equation obtaining an expression for $y^{2}$ in terms of $x$.

(ii)     Hence show that $\ a \$ satisfies the equation $a = -\frac{1}{3}(2+a^2+a^3).$
$$\tag*{}$$
(iii)     Use an iterative formula based on the equation in part (ii) to determine $a$ correct to 3 decimal places. Give the result of each iteration to 5 decimal places.
$$\tag*{}$$

7.     The curve $y = \sin (x + \frac{1}{3} \pi) \cos x$ has two stationary points in the interval $0 \leq x \leq \pi.$

$$\tag*{}$$
(ii)     By considering the formula for $\cos(A + B)$, show that, at the stationary points on the curve, $\cos (2x + \frac{1}{3} \pi) = 0.$
