Question 6:

If p(x) = 5 – 4x + 2x2, find

(i) p(0)

= 5 – 4(0) + 2(0)2

= 5

(ii) p(3)

= 5 – 4(3) + 2(3)2

= 5 – 12 + 18

= 23 – 12

= 11

(iii) p(-2)

= 5 – 4(-2) + 2(-2)2

= 5 + 8 + 8

= 21

Question 7:

If P(Y) = 4 + 3Y – Y2+ 5y3 , find

(i) p(0)

= 4 + 3(0) – 02 + 5(0)3

= 4 + 0 – 0 + 0

= 4

(ii) p(2)

= 4 + 3(2) – 22 + 5(2)3

= 4 + 6 – 4 + 40

= 10 – 4 + 40

= 46

(III) p(-1)

= 4 + 3(-1) – (-1)2 + 5(-1)3

= 4 – 3 – 1 – 5

= -5

Question 8:

If f(t) = 4t2 – 3t + 6, find

(i) f(0)

= 4(0)2 – 3(0) + 6

= 0 – 0 + 6

= 6

(ii) f(4)

= 4(4)2 – 3(4) + 6

= 64 – 12 + 6

= 58

(iii) f(-5)

= 4(-5)2 – 3(-5) + 6

= 100 + 15 + 6

= 121
