Exam-Style Questions.

Problems adapted from questions set for previous Mathematics exams.

1.

GCSE Higher

Sketch the graph of \(y=0.5^x +1\) for \(0 \le x \le 5\) labeling the y intercept.


2.

GCSE Higher

Match the equation with the letter of its graph

Graphs
EquationGraph
$$y=3-\frac{10}{x}$$
$$y=2^x$$
$$y=\sin x$$
$$y=x^2+7x$$
$$y=x^2-8$$
$$y=2-x$$

3.

IGCSE Extended

The table shows some values (rounded to one decimal place) for the function \(y=\frac{2}{x^2}-x, x\neq 0\).

\(x\) -3 -2 -1 -0.5 0.5 1 2 3 4
\(y\) 3.2 2.5   8.5 7.5 1.0   -2.8  

(a) Complete the table of values.

(b) Draw the graph of \(y=\frac{2}{x^2}-x\) for \(-3\le x \le -0.5\) and \(0.5\le x\le 4\).

(c) Use your graph to solve the equation \(\frac{2}{x^2}-x-3=0\)

(d) Use your graph to solve the equation \(\frac{2}{x^2}-x=1-2x\)

(e) By drawing a suitable tangent, find an estimate of the gradient of the curve at the point where x = 1.

(f) Using algebra, show that you can use the graph at \(y=0\) to find \(\sqrt[3]2\)


4.

GCSE Higher

(a) Find the coordinates of the point at which the curve \(y = k^x\) intersects the y-axis.

The equation of circle \(A\) is \(x^2+y^2=25\). This circle is translated by the vector \( \begin{pmatrix} 0 \\ 4 \\ \end{pmatrix} \) to give circle \(B\).

(b) Draw a sketch of circle \(B\) clearly labelling the points of intersection with the y-axis.


The exam-style questions appearing on this site are based on those set in previous examinations (or sample assessment papers for future examinations) by the major examination boards. The wording, diagrams and figures used in these questions have been changed from the originals so that students can have fresh, relevant problem solving practice even if they have previously worked through the related exam paper.

The solutions to the questions on this website are only available to those who have a Transum Subscription.
