Solution
1. (a) Since  is the complex root of 3 – 1 = 0.  3 = 1 …. (1)
3  1 0
2 +  + 1 =   0 ,   1. (4M)
 1  1
(b) f() = 7 + 6 + 4 + 22 + 1
= (3)2  + (3)2 + 3  + 22 + 1
=  + 1 +  + 22 + 1
= 2 (2 +  + 1)
= 0 , by (1). (4M)
 By Factor Theorem, x =  is a root of the equation f(x) = 0.
By (a), f(x) has a factor x2 + x + 1 .
By division, f(x) = (x2 + x + 1) (x5 – x3 + 2x2 – x + 1) . (4A)

2. By Vieta’s theorem,       k ...(2)
   125 ...(3)

(2M)
Since , ,  are in geometric sequence,  = 2 …. (4) (2M)
Subst. (4) in (3),  = 125,

 =5 …. (5) (2A)
Subst. (5) in (1),  + 5 +  = 17,   = 12 –  …. (6)
Subst. (5), (6) in (4), (12 – ) = 5 2
,   – 12 + 25 = 0

## Solving, we get  = 6  11 ( 6  11 is rejected since  <  < ) (1A)

From (6),  = 6  11 . (1A)
Subst. (5) in x3 – 17x2 + kx – 125 = 0, 53 – 17(52) + k(5) – 125 = 0,
 k = 85 (2A)
(Ans) (, , ) = ( 6  11 , 5, 6  11 ) , k = 85. (2A)

(c) (sin x – sin 2x)(sin x – sin 3x)(sin x + sin 2x + sin 3x) = 0 (2M)
(i) sin x – sin 2x = 0  sin (1 – 2 cos x) = 0

 x = n or x = 2n  , where n  Z . (2A)

## (ii) sin x – sin 3x = 0  - 2 sin x cos 2x = 0

 x = n or x = n  , where n  Z . (2A)

## (iii) sin x + sin 2x + sin 3x = 0  sin 2 x  2 sin 2 x cos x  0

 sin 2 x 1  2 cos 2 x   0  sin 2x = 0 or cos 2 x  

## Condition for equality:

(A + B)2 = (A + B) (A + B) = A2 + AB + BA + B2 = A2 + 2AB + B2
or AB = BA (2A)

## (b) By (a), it is sufficient to show that AB = BA. (3M)
