1. I think a lot of people might have failed to spot in the Dijkstras's question that they weren't looking for the minimum distance to the last node you visit which is the usual. They just asked you to perform the algorithm and the next question was the path from A to G, not A to J as expected

The answer to the first part was 13 right?

There was no answer, you just had to do the algorithm. But I did get AJ as 13. It said find the shortest distances to all the fair ground rides or something like that. The next question was 1 mark and was the shortest route from A to G.
4. Isn't AJ 15 and AG 13

A-J was 15
A-G was 13

point E or D the one you had to make a bridge with was 9

the bridge reduced distance to G but distance to J didnt change.

this tells you x>>3 and x<4

so x=3

Ah yes, I remember now. AJ was 15.
If I got X and y correct in the last question but got profit to be 600 by 20x + 15y how many would I lose?

should only be 1

I got £505 too, the last section was 3 marks so we should pick up atleast 1 ft mark.
I got £505 too i got all the lines correct, there was two intersect i found the first one gave me x=20 and y=10, subbing into p=15x + 20y, gave £500, i know for sure that 20 and 10 are correct as i used the simultaneous eq however i tried the other interect point and found x=27 and y=5 which gave £505 obvs i went with £505 i dont know how ppl got £520 maybe used wront points or line. Fingers crossed

Nah it's 520

For the first part I did 10+12=24 but noticed lucky That would've haunted me forever!!
Wasn't sure what to do for the last two parts. It said start and finish at any point, so I added 10 to the total time they gave us, and for the last part I added 12 and stated the one that he didn't finish at from the '10'
which question is this about? pretty sure i did the 10+12 :/

Tbh at this point i am just hoping i am right but your probably right, i wouldnt have cared much if only AQA didnt **** me with core 3.

I did c3 last year such a nice paper what came up in yours

Yh i agree all the c3 papers from 2015 and before were all standard, same pattern but this year, i kid you not most retarted questions like i had my friends who get As **** up, **** like secx + tanx= 5, show that secx - tanx= -0.2, and it was like 2-3 mark and then you had to find x, then find the angle, so if you coukdnt do the 3 marker you lost the next 5 marks **** like that..

I think your critical region is wrong. You went above x=2y and not below.
16. Oh i see well i did djikstra right and got A-G to be 13 in that case. But i misread the question and thought the route it wanted was A-J
Also got X=3
Small error on one of the nearest neighbours
Read the wrong coordinates for max profit
Wrong route on djikstra but algorithm was right and I gotX=3
Oo and the kruskals question asking for an inequality I put k>10 which is apparently wrong.
Im going for around 65

Why is kruskals wrong there is not other information to say k between any other boundary

Apparently according to people on this its 10 <K<14??
Not sure. But i got the 10

I thought i did too but i used my graphics cal to plot the region x>2y which is the right inequality i dont think i got that wrong i am not sure where i messed up shm
