A curve $$C$$ has the property that if the tangent drawn at any point $$P$$ on $$C$$ meets the co-ordinate axes at $$A$$ and $$B$$, then $$P$$ is the mid-point of $$AB$$. The curve passes through the point $$(1, 1)$$. Determine the equation of the curve.

Suppose $$f(x)$$ is a function satisfying the following conditions

(a) $$f(0)=2,f(1)=1$$,

(b) $$f$$has a minimum value at $$x=5/2$$, and

(c) for all $$x$$, $$$f'\left( x \right) = \matrix{ {2ax} & {2ax - 1} & {2ax + b + 1} \cr b & {b + 1} & { - 1} \cr {2\left( {ax + b} \right)} & {2ax + 2b + 1} & {2ax + b} \cr } $$$

where $$a,b$$ are some constants. Determine the constants $$a, b$$ and the function $$f(x)$$.

Let $$a+b=4$$, where $$a<2,$$ and let $$g(x)$$ be a differentiable function.

If $${{dg} \over {dx}} > 0$$ for all $$x$$, prove that $$\int_0^a {g\left( x \right)dx + \int_0^b {g\left( x \right)dx} } $$

increases as $$(b-a)$$ increases.

A curve $$y=f(x)$$ passes through the point $$P(1, 1)$$. The normal to the curve at $$P$$ is $$a(y-1)+(x-1)=0$$. If the slope of the tangent at any point on the curve is proportional to the ordinate of the point, determine the equation of the curve. Also obtain the area bounded by the $$y$$-axis, the curve and the normal to the curve at $$P$$.
