INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES
Write your name, Centre number and candidate number in the spaces provided on the answer
There is no restriction on the number of questions which you may attempt.
If a numerical answer cannot be given exactly, and the accuracy required is not specified in the question,
then in the case of an angle it should be given to the nearest degree, and in other cases it should be
given correct to 2 significant figures.

element, a4 = b2 = e and ba = a3b.

## 14 The future performance of an investment fund is modelled by the differential equation

dx -!r
-+tx=e 2
dt ,

where x billion dollars is the magnitude of the fund at time t years. Given that x = 1 when t = 0, find
x in terms of t. [5]

## An alternative model of future fund performance is

d2y + 15dt
5dt1" dy + 10y = 3 cos 2t -sin 2t,

where y = x -0.2. Solve this differential equation to obtain x in terms of t, assuming that the values
dx
of x and dt at t = ° are the samefor both models. [9]

Describe the predicted long-term performance of the fund in the caseof each model. [3]
