For the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0,
(a + b)n = an +
an–1 b +
an–2 b2 + … +
an–r br + … + bn,
where n is a positive integer and
sin2 A + cos2 A = 1.
sec2 A = 1 + tan2 A.
cosec2 A = 1 + cot2 A.
Formulae for ∆ABC
a2 = b2 + c2 – 2bc cos A.
∆ = bc sin A.

Find the values of m for which the line y = mx – 9 is a tangent to the curve x2 = 4y.
The speed v ms–1 of a particle travelling from A to B, at time t s after leaving A, is given by v = 10t – t2.
The particle starts from rest at A and comes to rest at B. Show that the particle has a speed of 5 ms–1 or
