Nice one mate, problem is it asked for an integer, and it was 3/4 as the gradient because you got the formula wrong. It didn't ask for y=mx+c it asked for ax+by=c so keep it up
what if i only wrote 2 without working out will how much out of 3 will they give me ?

and the gradient q i did it correct but i didnt re arrange it and x it by 4 how how many mark will i get out of 4 ? thankks

idk but wasn't the question about the spheres and cube 1439
guys i got 8 for this question, pray for me
3. No.. Grade B will most likely be 44% (43-46 - I'd say). But if you look at previous years, a B has never been above 46 and this was a 'difficult' paper which may be seen as unfair for some (due to the quantity of 5 mark questions).
An A will probably be around 60 to 65% and you're probably right about an A* being 80.

did you have to get the sf sqroot it then cube it then use it?
meant 102.4 basically had to do 1600/2.5^3

Judging by the fact last year was the hardest paper ever set and nothing like it will never be set again.... No

maybe i am just dumb but i was predicted an a* and i found it so difficult. i reckon i got about 70% probably if I'm lucky, they really went for it with the hard questions : (

Same here dude but that meant the volume was smaller than surface area, which isn't possible I don't think
11. what about make t the subject question?

80% for a* is so high though surely???

its usually 75-80%
19. (Original post by moblox)
its usually 75-80%
true, but i think the general consensus is it was a lot harder than usual (possibly because of being the last year of the current grading system)
