Yeah I left till the end as well, it wasn't easy, only problem is the fact there was a question depending on the answer of k so I lost another two marks so in total 3 marks by accidentally writing a minus sign.
I know what you mean.

My approach was to times every term I got in part 1 by the bracket so you ended up getting 6 terms, but then I didn't manage to solve it for k in the time I had left.
3. How many marks would I lose if I found x but didn't find P😤😤

What did everyone get for the logs question the second part?
-2.01 or something like that?

Not too many, maybe 1 or 2 at a guess?

I did the same and looking at past papers it's 2 marks lost. 1 was for substituting x and one is for getting the correct answer.
8. It's so annoying that edexcel won't allow the exam solutions to be posted online. It's stupid, people discuss answers anyway. It just feels like they're sulking because people keep complaining and this is there way of getting 'revenge'
9. Am I the only one who got a p=121m and x=14.something?
10. I did the same! So frustrated at myself

It was out of 5 marks so I think we'll lose 2 accuracy marks.

do you think we will lose the marks for e) and proving it was a min point?
14. x was 16.6339... which = 17, then you had to sub it into P to get P = 120
15. Was there a question 10????

perimiter 120, x was 17
I got the same 😋

What did you guys get for question 10?
There was no question 10!
18. question nine was a middle finger from edexcel
19. (Original post by SirHotWings)
I think I got 16.something, then I subbed it back into the P formula to get the minimum value of P, that sound about right?
I got 16.4 something and rounded it to the nearest metre of 16m as it was below 16.5?

The value of X was meant to be subbed back into the formula for P giving you 120m not 16
