USE LINKED MARKSCHEME NOT ATTACHED ONE, THIS ONE IS UPDATED.

1 Geometric series question, prove given and then workout sum to infinity. Then find the difference between the 9th and 10th term

2 Trapezium rule. in the interval with 4 trapeziums

3 Circle centred at . Find the equation of it and of a tangent at point

4 where find the remainder when divided by then factorise it fully given is a factor.

5 Expansion of . The using that expand in the form given the coefficient of

6 solve for and

7 This was and then find the limits (where it crossed the axis.

8 , write b in terms of a then find given .

9 Find optimum perimeter of a funny shape which comprised a rectangle, sector and a equilateral triangle, need diagram.

Equations given, that needed proving are,
and

1 a) (2 marks) proof
b) (2 marks)
c) (2 marks)

2 a) (1 mark)
b) (3 marks)
c) (2 marks)

3 a) (2 marks)
b) (3 marks)
c) (4 marks)

4 a) (2 marks)
b) (2 marks)
c) (4 marks)

5 a) (4 marks)
b) (1 mark)
c) (2 marks)
d) (2 marks)

6 i) (3 marks) or
ii) (6 marks) or

7 a) (3 marks)
b) (3 marks)

8 i) (3 marks)
ii) (4 marks)

9 a) (2 marks)
b) (3 marks) proof
c) (3 marks) proof
d) (5 marks)
e) (2 marks) is a minimum at

This is useful and was spread out over another thread so I thought I would post it here. The missed answers were all either proofs or not suited to a single number response.

EDIT: 9c is not
8ii is not
6a is not thanks for spotting this one UKoE Luna

3. Thanks!

TeeEm
yes
5. 1.b. Is wrong. The answer is -1.602. It has to be negative because in geometric sequence, the biggest term is subtract by the smallest.

Therefore 64(3/4)^9 - 64(3/4)^8 = -1.602 (to three decimal places).

P.S. I don't know if the markscheme would say 'ignore' signs.

It asked for the difference I think it would say ignore signs

If it asked for difference, I am pretty sure it would be a negative sign. Since when the lower term is minus by the bigger term in order to calculate the difference?
8. How many makes would I loose for not putting it in radians. It didn't ask for radians
9. how many marks was 1a?

Difference is absolute. It is asking for how different the numbers are. The positive is more correct.
11. Whats 8i)?????
12. (Original post by Verdahf)
Whats 8i)?????
Thankyou, sorry I missed that, , write b in terms of a
13. forgot to encode my answer to 6i how many marks would i lose?
14. (Original post by Verdahf)

15. (Original post by X_IDE_sidf)
Thankyou, sorry I missed that, , write b in terms of a
Do you know how many marks this part was for?
16. (Original post by dididid)
Do you remember the number of marks this was worth, I think it was 3.
17. YESSSSS
18. (Original post by X_IDE_sidf)

yh i think 3 is right
i got between 70-73 marks how many ums would that be about?
20. for the first part of the logs

I said 1/3 = 3b+1/a-2

then 1/3a -2/3= 3b+1

1/3a-5/3=3b

1/3a-5/3 all divided by 3 = b

Is this correct and how many marks would i lose if incorrect?
