Something to do with AP and GP - you were given Un+1 in part i) I think

Someone please send in their solution of the integration question with answer 512/15
Do you remember the exact question?

My teacher has confirmed that the answer to 9iii is Pi/3a and 4Pi/3a.
Unless i'm wrong, with Pi/3A, you're multiplying by A twice.

The solution is 5/3 * 1/5Pi, which equals 1/3Pi but not 1/3Pi times by another A.

I am gonna start an unofficial mark scheme - I think this is about correct!

1i) 10cm (2m)

1ii) 5.04cm (2m)

2i) 3/10π (2m)

2ii) 20.4cm (3m)

3i) 27+27kx+9k^2x^2+k^3x^3 (4m)

3ii) +/-√3 (2m)

4i) log base 3 x^2/x+4 (2m)

4ii) x=12 (4m)

5a) x^4/2-x^3+2x^2-6x (3m)

5bi) -6/a+2/a^2+4 (4m)

5bii) 4 (1m)

6i) k=91 (3m)

6ii) Sum of terms = 978 (2m)

6iii) N=38 (6m)

7i) R=0, quotient = x^2-4x+3 (3m)

7ii) (x+1), (x-1), (x-3) (3m)

7iii) Prove (2m)

7iv) 512/15 (4m)

8i) Translation 2 units in positive x direction (2m)

8ii) Stretch scale factor 1/9 in y direction (2m)

8iii) Sketch, crosses y at (0,1/9) (2m)

8iv) x=6.73 (3m)

8v) Area =9.60 (3m)

9i) 2π/a (1m)

9ii) a=5/3 and k=√3/2 (3m)

9iii) π/3a and ? (4m)
8 iii and 9 iii were both 3 marks I think
5. Does anyone remember roughly what the questions were for these answers?
5bi) -6/a+2/a^2+4 (4m) 8iv) x=6.73 (3m)
6. For the last part of question 9, I answered in degrees and not radians (60/a and 180 - 60/a) - the question didn't ask for radians did it so I'd still get all the marks?

Thank god, loads of people said you were meant to split it out and I didn't .
8. (Original post by CLGC98)
How were you meant to do the integration to find the area , was it with limits of 3 to -1 or do you do -1 to 0 and 0 to 3?
3 to -1

for definite?
Yep!

^ Last yea's mark scheme. Question 9 on that was very similar. They state explicitly that the answer "Must be radians and not degrees" but gave a method mark if "attempted in degrees not radians".
12. Can someone go through the area under curve one please? I got the intervals as 3 and -1 and integrated right but then somehow went wrong
13. (Original post by cc262626)
For the coeffient is equal to the constant question, did anyone else think they meant the constant k? And get answers of 1/9 and 0 😟
I did the same but since they didn't make it clear I think they should accept both answers
14. Does anyone remember the exact geometric question where you had to find N that's greater than infinity?

N=38
16. No I mean the question but thanks

not word for word but it was:
sum of first 20 terms of AP > sum to infinity of GP

(for the AP a=5 d=1.5) (for the GP a=1.2 (?) r=0.9)

I think it was -1 to 3 since the the are was above the axis, you only split it if it's part below part above. That's what I think anyway (might be wrong)

37.27 > N

So 38 is the smallest whole number N can take.

I was thinking you were right but the period isnt 2pi over a. 2pi over a is the period of a sin ax graph not a tan ax graph
u ARE supposed to use the period of the sin or cos graph... NOT the tan graph.
At the end of the day, the tan graph will give you many possible solutions, but the ones required by the question are the ones where the sin and cos are positive, so u work it out using the period of the sin and cosine in the quadrants where both sin and cos are positive
