SPM Practice 2 (Question 8 – 10)

Question 8:
The variables x and y are related by the equation y= p 3 x , where k is a constant. 
Diagram below shows the straight line graph obtained by plotting log 10 y against x.

 

  1. Express the equation y= p 3 x in its linear form used to obtain the straight line graph shown in Diagram above.
  2. Find the value of p.


Solution:


 

Question 9:
Variable x and y are related by the equation y 2 =p x q . When the graph lg y against lg x is drawn, the resulting straight line has a gradient of -2 and an vertical intercept of 0.5 . Calculate the value of p and of q.

Solution:





 

Question 10:
Variable x and y are related by the equation y= c dx . When the graph y against xy is drawn the resulting line has gradient 0.25 and an intercept on the y-axis of 1.25. Calculate the value of c and of d.

Solution:
