Aim & Objective
This assignment is designed so that it enables the student to demonstrate their understanding of the mathematical concepts covered in the module through answering various practical problems; divided into four parts. The coursework should be submitted as one document in a report format in final submission.
The GCD (greatest common divisor), LCM (lowest common multiple) and prime numbers is used for a variety of applications in number theory, particularly in modular arithmetic and thus encryption algorithms such as RSA. It is also used for simpler applications, such as simplifying fractions. This makes the GCD, LCM and prime numbers a rather fundamental concept to number theory, and as such several algorithms have been discovered to efficiently compute it. Primes are the set of all numbers that can only be equally divided by 1 and themselves, with no other even division possible. Numbers like 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11 are all prime numbers.
Demonstrate the concepts of greatest common divisor and least common multiple of a given pair of numbers with an example. To support the evidence of your understanding on LCM and GCD, you should present with pseudocode and a computer program in python to compute LCM and GCD based on user’s input. It is desirable, to support your findings by identifying multiplicative inverses in modular arithmetic with an example. Produce a detailed written explanation of the importance and application of prime numbers in RSA encryption (Rivest–Shamir–Adleman). To support the evidence of your understanding on the use of prime numbers, you are required to develop a computer program in C/ C++ or python to demonstrate the asymmetric cryptography algorithm.
Arithmetic progressions are used in simulation engineering and in the reproductive cycle of bacteria. Some uses of AP’s in daily life include uniform increase in the speed at regular intervals, completing patterns of objects, calculating simple interest, speed of an aircraft, increase or decrease in the costs of goods, sales and production and so on. Geometric progressions (GP’s) are used in compound interest and the range of speeds on a drilling machine. In fact, GPs are used throughout mathematics, and they have many important applications in physics, engineering, biology, economics, computer science, queuing theory and finance.
To support the evidence of your understanding on AP and GP, solve the following 4 problems.
Probability theory and probability distributions
The probability of something to happen is the likelihood or a chance of it happening. Values of probability lie between 0 and 1, where 0 represents an absolute impossibility and 1 represent an absolute certainty. The probability of an event happening usually lies somewhere between these two extreme values and it is expressed either as a proper a decimal fraction.
2.1 To support the evidence of your understanding on probability theory and probability distributions, solve the following problems.
i) all of them are blue.
ii) two is white and the third is red.
a) less than 19.5 hours?
b) between 20 and 22 hours?
a) What percent of people earn less than £30,000?
b) What percent of people earn between £35,000 and £45,000?
c) What percent of people earn more than £50,000?
It is also desirable to support your findings by producing a brief evaluation report on the use of probability theory in hashing and load balancing.
Forces, velocities, and various other quantities are vectors functions find their applications in engineering, physics, fluid flow, electrostatics, computational maths and so on. The engineer must understand these fields as the basis of the design and construction of systems, such as airplanes, laser generators, thermodynamically system, or robots. In three dimensions, geometrical ideas become influential, enriching the theory. Thus, many geometrical quantities can be given by vectors.
To support the evidence of your understanding on geometry and vectors, solve the following problems
3.1 Find the equation of the line passing through (5, 7) and parallel to the line 5x – 7y = 4.
3.2 What is an equation of the line that goes through (−1, −3) and is perpendicular to the line 2x+7y+5=0?
3.3 Discover the estimation of h for which the lines 6x+5y+8=0 and 5x-hy+8= 0 are
(i) perpendicular to each other
(ii) parallel to each other
3.4 Explain the concepts of vector graphics in a computer system.
To present your further understanding on coordinate systems, you are required to evaluate the coordinate system used in programming a simple output device (Use a computer screen as an example of the output device in your evaluation). You should also present your findings on how to construct the scaling of simple shapes; like Triangle, circle, or a straight line in vector coordinates and visually by programming and simulating in Python or any other programming language.

Calculus (Differential and integral calculus) is deeply integrated in every branch of the physical sciences, such as physics and biology. It is found in computer science, statistics, and engineering, in economics, business, and medicine. Among the many applications in computer science, numerical calculations, systems modelling and problems involving the performance of algorithm can be cited as examples. In this task you will demonstrate your understanding of differential and integral calculus.
To support the evidence of your understanding on Calculus, solve the following problems
4.1 Suppose that x = f(t) = ¼*t2 - t + 2 denotes the position of a bus at time t.
(a) Find the velocity as a function of time; plot its graph.
(b) Find and plot the speed as a function of time.
(c) Find the acceleration.
4.2 Sand is pouring out of a tube at 5 cubic cm per second. It forms a pile which has the shape of a cone. The height of the cone is equal to the radius of the circle at its base. How fast is the sandpile rising when it is 10 cm high?
4.3 Find the maximum and minimum value of the function
x3 - 3x2 - 9x + 12
4.4 Find the dimensions of a rectangle with perimeter 1000 metres so that the area of the rectangle is a maximum.
4.5 If the region bounded above by the graph of the function f(x)= x2 - 6x + 9 and below by the graph of the function g(x)=x+3 over the interval [x, y] is represented as R, find the area of Region R.
4.6 Find the area between the two curves y = x2 and y = 2x – x2
