    was okay apart from the last question and i had no ideas how to do qeestion 8 ( make a quadratic equation to show only one root) ....did any 1 else get 222 cm sq fro are of the sector thingy and like 0.177 i think for trapezium rul? around dem values?

    You will probably only drop 1 mark for missing -root3, guessing you'll get error carried forward in the second part

    (tanx+1)(sin2x-3cos2x) find the values of tan.. and hence solve.
     (tan \theta + 1)(sin^2 \theta - 3 cos^2\theta) = 0

    You will get two equations,
     tan \theta = -1 \ \ and \ \ sin^2 \theta -3 cos^2 \theta =0

    The second equation can be simplified,  sin^2 \theta -3 cos^2 \theta =0  \implies sin^2 \theta = 3 cos^2 \theta \implies tan^2 \theta = 3 \implies tan \theta = \pm \sqrt3

    hope so.. i can't see me dropping any more than 3 marks.

    what did people get for the 4 mark (yes 4 mark!!!) transformation question.. i got stretch in x direction SF 1/10

    I got stretch by scale factor 10 in the y-direction, but I think they might be equivalent?

    Did anyone find the shaded area in the arc sector question? What I done was split the whole thing in half so that you get two right angled triangles, and then I worked out the area of that. Then I worked out the arc area, and took that away from the overall area.
