do you happen by any chance have the mark scheme for jan 12 as well?

Well I tried but didn't really manage to get it in the correct form. What should I convert the in to?
Sorry I only just saw this, the question says in terms of . So it would be rearrange to get what cos2^2 is equal to

It's cool, wasn't really too bad just needed to look at the other parts of the question and realise you could sub

Thanks anyway

Hi can someone help me out with

Q4 ii
Thanks
integrate between the line x=2 and y=4/x so do integral of (4/x)^2-(2)^2 as it is volume of revolution. Once integrated sub x=6 and x=2 and you should get right answer.

Does anyone have mark scheme for OCR 2012 C3 paper January?

And does anyone knows how to solve this question

tan(θ + 60◦ ) tan(θ − 60◦ ) = 4 sec2 θ − 3,

it is from ocr C3 2007 June

Many thanks for help!

Think about completing the square on the the function to get it in a form you can see each transformation.

it said differentiate it, I did and still got the wrong answer. SMH

Well part i. of that question gives you what the LHS of that equation is equal to. So set what they give you equal to your RHS there, rearrange the equation and use the identities you know (hint: sec^2θ involving tan) and solve.

Aren't you now looking at the second part where they're asking for the range now?

Can someone please explain why
sec (x) + tan (x) = 0 has no solutions? betweet 0 and 360degrees... I got 270?

I squared then to get sec^2(x) + tan^2(x)=0. Sec^2(x)=1+tan^2(x) so I rewrote the equation in terms of tan(x) and got 1+2tan^2(x)=0. Then I got tan^2(x)=-0.5 which would be a Math error on my calculator so I took that to mean there were no solutions. I don't know if that's right though...
