    The trig one was fine I multiplied the top and bottom by (CosA+SinA) and the answer presented itself. I think there were other ways too.

    oh the xy=6 x^2-y^2=5 ??
    What number was this? Q10 anyone xD, got the answer but it was only 7 marks........ I feel like it should have been at least 8 or 9.

    I tried qn 10, I got up until the limits i got 1/2(e^(-x)sinx - e^(-x)cosx) and then put in the limits and ran out of time before I could complete..but I feel like I would've gotten it with abit more time! the xy=6 and x^2-y^2=5 was number 12! the complex number question where u had to find the roots of that number and its conjugate!

    What do you guys think the grade boundaries for 7 and 6 are gonna be for paper 1?

    95 for 7. I never really pay attention to the 6 boundries so can't guess, sorry.

    Did anyone else, in the complex numbers, get something weird for the argument like arctan((root7)/3 or something).

    It varies tremendously especially with HL Math. I've seen it go anywhere from 80 to 100.

    I've seen it at 74 on some papers. And today's Paper 2 was harder than those paper's for sure.

    But this paper one was certainly on the easier side, so I'm guessing 95.

    Ah fair enough - I wouldn't think too much about it though. I came out of my papers last year thinking Paper 1 was straightforward and Paper 2 had the most messed up section B I had ever seen. Paper 1's grade boundary came out at 79 and Paper 2's was 84 or something along those lines if I remember right. Each to their own I guess....

    Guys low lets estimate the difficulty of paper 1 by a scale from 1 to 10 (1 easy to 10 hard)

    I got the roots for the 5+2i, revised that the night before . I'd give it an 8 in relative terms, usually I find P1 easier than P2 for this year it was the opposite. I don't remember them exactly they were 2, -2 and 3i I think.

    Paper 1 section A was a 3 or 4. Section B was a 5.

    Oh I got that question pretty much then except i didn't put pi - and pi +! I put 2e^(i(arctan(root(7)/3)) and 2e^i(arctan(-root(7)/3))! Which is I suppose the same thing because pi plus gives u a positive sign and pi minus gives u a negative sign!

    yeah -5+12i was (2+3i) or (-2-3i) and -5-12i (the conjugate i guess) was (2-3i) (-2+3i)!

    People in my class didn't like paper 1..so its not everyone of us who thought it was okay! May 2009 TZ2 Paper 1 is one of the easiest papers I have ever seen and the boundary for that is 91! Even though our paper 1 was pretty good, I'd still say May 09 TZ2 P1 was way easier!

    That is quite relieving....I got exactly that..at least all the answers look familiar

    for the equation at start of part B

    I got (x+4)(x-2)(x^2 + 3x +4)

    Yeah I got that as well!!

    I read -5+12i lol! And then the conjugate as -5-12i If it isn't here we go misread marks!

    If u got 3i then im pretty sure u did -5+12i too! Coz 5+12i is (3+2i)^2 not (2+3i)^2
