2. Find the range of values for c for which the line y=cx+6 does not meet the curve 2x^2-xy=3.

3. Find the range of values for k for which 8y=x+2k is a tangent to the curve 2y^2=x+k

**bobpursley**, Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 9:53amThe slope of line cannot be that of curve or greater.

slope line=-3

slope curve>slope line

-3<-3/x^2

x^2>1

x>1

check x=10 slope line=-3

slope curve=-3/100=-.03

check x=1/2 slope curve=-12

do the others the same way

**Kerry-Ann**, Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 10:02amnumber one is supposed to be -6<c<6

number two is supposed to be c>5

and number three is supposed to be k=8

**Steve**, Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 2:38pmthe slope of xy=3 is y' = -3/x^2

So, the slope is -3 at x=1

The tangent to the curve at x=1 is

y-3 = -3(x-1)

y = -3x+6

y = 6-3x

so, for y = c-3x, if c < 6, the line falls below the curve. Similarly, for x<0, the line lies above the other branch of the curve if c > -6.

So, -6 < c < 6

Follow this logic for the other parts
