Mathematical Methods for Engineers 1


Assignment 1, Study Period 2, 2016

This assignment is worth 10% of marks for the course.

Show your working. Marks are generally allocated to the various steps through a
solution to reach an answer. Show all necessary steps so that the reader can follow your
solution procedure. Sometimes a phrase in English is useful to explain your steps.

Write your own solutions. You may discuss your work with other students, but you
must write up your solutions yourself. You are not allowed to use anyone elses written
work when you are writing up your assignment.

Acknowledge help and joint work. If you receive help from another source (e.g.
students, tutors, friends, internet sources) you must make a note of it on your assignment.

Use MATLAB as permitted. You may use MATLAB to check answers but do not
use MATLAB to justify your answers (unless asked to do so). See the first dot point on
showing working.

Late penalties: Assignments submitted late, without an extension being granted, at-
tract a penalty of 10% of the maximum marks for each day or part thereof beyond the
due date and time. Submissions will not be accepted, without prior negotiation, more
than one week beyond the due date.

Question 3. 5 marks

Let f be a function which

i is continuous everywhere except at x = 2 and x = 3


ii is differentiable everywhere except at x = 2, x = 0 and x = 3
iii satisfies

> 0 for x < 2

= 0 for 2 < x < 0
f 0 (x) =


< 0 for 0 < x < 3

> 0 for x > 3.
iv satisfies f (2) = f (3) = 2
v has a graph with x-intercept at x = 2 and y-intercept at y = 2.

Draw a possible sketch of the graph of f .

two points. Find the coordinates of those points.

Question 6. 6+4=10 marks

Function f (x) is defined as




|x 1| if x < 0
