Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say!  26102016

For the one where you had to prove it was a minimum value, I believe you first need to find that it is a stationary point by subbing in to dy/dx, then subbing in to d^2y/dx^2 to show it is a minimum.
I base this on the fact the question was 4 marks, and it wouldn't be 4 marks for only subbing in to d^2y/dx^2.

I got root 65 for the radius as well. How did everyone find the paper and what do you guys think about grade boundaries?

That method only works when you are given the equation in the way that was already shown. You HAD to use the fact that it said the point was on the circle to find the radius. I almost made that mistake for k=34 but if you plug in the coordinates for the point on the circle then you see it doesn't make sense.

for Q8 where you had to show point P was a minimum, i failed at solving 6x^227x54 to find the stationary points. i was really stressed with 10 minutes left and so i forgot to simplify by dividing by 3 and so made things really hard on myself. Instead i just put 3/2 into the second derivative and got 45>0 therefore point P was a minimum. Would i get any marks for this? it was worth 4 marks.

and enter the value of P i believe it was 3/2 as X and you should get 0 anyway
that proves it is a stationary point
then use that same x value and put into d2y/dx2 and you should get 45
hence since dy/dx=0 when x=3/2 it is stationary
also since d2y/dx2>0 it is a minimum point

Pretty sure the last question was that:
b) y=k(x+4) intercepts the line at y=x^2 +4x8 show that it equals...
c) y=k(x+4) is the tangent of y=x^2+4x8 and to find the values of k when it has real roots. I got k= 12+/ (8root3)

Okay, I've added a little bit.
1) a)Asked to work out gradient of a parallel line, m=  3/2
b) Asked to find coordinates of B, B(  3,4)
c) Asked to find K, K=  30
2) a) simplify (3√5)^2 = 45
b) Put ((3√5)^2 + √5) / (7 + 3 √5) into m + n√5= 75  32√5
3) a) y=(x7/2)^2  41/4
b) Translation of (1/2 , 41/4)
4) a) show that (x+3) was a factor of x^3  5x^2 8x + 48. p(3) = 3^3  5 * 3^2  8 * 3 + 48 = 0. As p(3) = 0, (x+3) is a factor of p(x).
b) Three linear factors goes to (x+3)(x4)(x4)
c) find the remainder when x^3  5x^2 8x + 48 was divided by (x+2) R=20
d) factorise p(x) using your answer to part c) as R = (x2)(x^23x+14) + 20
5) a) asked to find equation of circle (x5)^2+(y+3)^2=65 (note 65 = r^2)
b) asked to find coordinates of B (AB is diameter) B ( 12, 7)
c) asked to find the equation of the tangent at A 7x4y+18=0
d) asked to find the length of CT = 9
6) a)
7) a) I think there were 4 parts to this question I can't remember part a and b
b)
c) Definite integral (from 1 to 2) = 81/4 (20.25)
d) Area of shaded region (integral  triangle area) = 45/4 (11.25)
8) a) can't remember anything except the answers were k>6 and k<3/2 (NOT 6 > k > 3/2 )
Answers that need a question to be assigned to
 Q(5/4), y=32x40, upside down positive graph passing through y axis at 8
 k=4 and k=20
 x = 1±√5
 d^2y/dx^2=  2x  9x^2 sub in xcoord of p to get 45, 45>0 therefore minimum

x = 1±√5 was for question 6, it was the x coordinates where the graph passed through the x axis

Wait, are we 100% positive the first question asked for a parallel line? I could have sworn it said perpendicular and gave 3/5 as my gradient...
Edit: Sorry, said 5/3, meant 3/5. Or something. I don't even know anymore.Last edited by Cassette; 18052016 at 16:42.
