Exam-Style Question on Circular Functions
A mathematics exam-style question with a worked solution that can be revealed gradually
Question id: 76. This question is similar to one that appeared on an IB Standard paper in 2014. The use of a calculator is allowed.
Consider the graph of \(f(x)=a\sin(b(x+c))+12\), for \(0\le x\le 24\).
The graph has a maximum at (8, 22) and a minimum at (18, 2).
(a) Find the value of \(a\).
(b) Find the value of \(b\).
(c) Find the value of \(c\).
(d) Solve \(f(x)=5\).
The worked solutions to these exam-style questions are only available to those who have a Transum Subscription.
Subscribers can drag down the panel to reveal the solution line by line. This is a very helpful strategy for the student who does not know how to do the question but given a clue, a peep at the beginnings of a method, they may be able to make progress themselves.
This could be a great resource for a teacher using a projector or for a parent helping their child work through the solution to this question. The worked solutions also contain screen shots (where needed) of the step by step calculator procedures.
A subscription also opens up the answers to all of the other online exercises, puzzles and lesson starters on Transum Mathematics and provides an ad-free browsing experience.
