    Do you mean the argument questions?

    Probably not on question 4 as it does not give an interval for the angle.

    10 gives an interval in radians but you could have converted to degrees and then back again without losing any marks.

    OCR (not OCR MEI) FP1 Answers June 2010


    10 (i) z = 2 + i (5 marks)

    (ii) Show (1 mark)

    (iii) w = 2 -i (5 marks)


    Edit: tidied up a bit
    Mr M.. that last iii) question 10 i think
    with w^6 etc , i noticed the answers in i) cubed to make ii)
    but i spent the last ten minutes trying to factorise a sixthic or w.e. u call ^6 8)
    but yeah how do you work that out?

    thankss
