I agree totally, I was also hoping for some polynomial division. The question on polynomials also took me a wile to figure out and had to come back to it.
I found with the integration questions I kept getting fractions and it just looked incorrect, however looking over my workings found no mistake unless I did something stupid. I got something like 1/6-1+5 or something along those lines, its probably wrong
This is the hardest MPC1 I've seen
Your numbers were very similar (if not the same) to what I got, and I gave up at about that point. In all honesty I think Integrations with fractions are a bit cruel to be giving to people on MPC1.
Its so annoying because I know that I can do it then AQA goes and writes a paper like this. I dont even think i done the last inequalities question.
Straight away they left me pondering over fractions making me doubt myself.
Yes the discriminant was really ridiculous, in the end i think i got
-96k^2 +56k + 96 =0
changed the signs, divided by 8 then got it
then the also ridiculous factorising which took me 5+ minutes to figure out it went from
12k^2 - 7k -12=0 to
getting k as -3/4 and 4/3

The inequalities question was so sneaky,but the key was to draw a picture of the situation-that seemed to help me anyways,the last bit I just realised that a - value of width is not possible and so hedged my bets on the x>8
Can anyone remember anything else which came up?
Do you mean x<8? Could have sworn the other x value was -12.
