Waec 2018 Further Mathematics Questions And Answers

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) Further Mathematics Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) paper will take place on Wednesday, 9th April, 2018.
The 2018 WAEC Further Mathematics exam will comprise of Papers 2 & 1 Essay and Objective which will commence from 8.30am and end by 14.30am. That means the examination will last for three hours (3hrs) only.
In this post, we will be posting out samples of the WAEC Further Mathematics questions for candidates that will participate in the examination for practice purposes.

remainder:30x+16
(x^2+5x+1)(2x-5)
=2x^3+10x^2+2x-5x^2-25x-5

Given:
f(x)={(4x-x^2)dx
f(x)=2x^2 – x^3/3 + K
f(3)=2(3)^2 – (3)^2/3 + K =21
18 – 9 + K=11
9+K=21
K=21-9
K=12
Therefore
f(x)= -x^3 + 2x^2 + 12

1/1-cos tita + 1/1+cos tita
=1+cos tita + 1-cos tita//(1-cos tita) (1+cos tita)
= 2/1+cos tita – cos tita – cos^2 tita
= 2/1-cos^2 tita
Recall that :
Cos^2 tita + sin^2 tita = 1
.:. Cos^2 tita = 1-sin^2 tita
.:. 1/1-cos^2 tita + 1/1+cos tita
= 2/1-(1-sin^2 tita)

dy/dx=x^2(1)+(x-3)(2x)
.:. dy/dx=x^2+2x^2-6x
dy/dx=3x^2-6x
At stationary point,
dy/dx=0..
