Welcome to the 2017 HSC 2U Marathon,
1. Only post questions within the level and scope of 2U HSC Mathematics.
2. Provide neat working out when possible
3. Don't flood the thread with multiple unanswered questions/spam.
4. Challenging questions that a 2U student can pick up easily are okay, but try to stay within the 2U syllabus content.
Here is a question I've pulled for you (modified from Ascham 2011 2U trial HSC)
For the curve
1. Find the stationary points and determine their nature
2. Find any points of inflexion
3. Sketch the graphs showing info from (1) & (2)
4. When is the curve decreasing with downward concavity?
How would you find all the functions that are both odd and even?
Any (real-valued) function (of a real variable) defined on a symmetric interval (about 0) that is both odd and even must satisfy f(x) = f(-x) = -f(-x) for all x in the domain, which implies f(-x) = 0 for all x in the domain, whence f(x) = 0 for all x in the domain (as the domain is a symmetric interval).
So the only functions with domain and codomain being subsets of R that are both odd and even are those that are identically 0 on a symmetric domain about 0. (If the domain is not symmetric about 0, we can't really talk about f(x) being equal to f(-x) for all x, which is something we need to do for the function to be even. I guess though you still could by saying that it only matters for x such that x and -x are in the domain. But for HSC purposes, the domain is usually symmetric.)

y = 3x³-6x²+4x+7
y’ = 9x²-12x+4
For S.P.
y’=0
9x²-12x+4=0
x= 2/3 y=71/9
Therefore S.P. at (2/3 , 71/9)
For I.P
y′′=0
y′′=18x-12
18x-12=0
x=2/3 y= 71/9
Therefore I.P. at (2/3 , 71/9)

A cube is inscribed in a right circular cone of height h and radius r so that one side is coplanar with the base and all four opposite vertices are in contact with the curved surface of the cone.
Find the side length of the cube in terms of h and r.

If I am a conic section, then my e = ∞
Just so we don't have this discussion in the future, my definition of the natural numbers includes 0.
Hey guys, how do I go about doing this: find the values of l that will make the quadratic y=(l+6)x^2-2lx+3 a perfect square. And can someone explain what 1/alpha + 1/beta is when doing the roots of a quadratic.
Thanks bro

If I'm interpreting your question correctly:

If one function, but not both functions, is monotonic decreasing, then the product of their first derivatives will be negative, and so will be monotonic decreasing.
Correct, but small technicality error: Monotone means the inequality isn't necessarily strict (≥)

Thanks for clearing that up; none of my teachers were able to tell me definitively.
