This is Linear B.
6. Is there a Linear B unofficial mark scheme for the calculator paper?
7. Hiya, Please could we create a higher unofficial mark scheme for linear b aqa calculator maths 2016?
8. I can't remember much tbh
9. What Did People Get For The Cosine Rule Question I got 60 Degrees As The Angle?

The answer to Q25 was no.

This was the method I used (now realised its not technically right but i got the answer so i shall pray for mercy marks)

8/4= 2 for the area of the equilateral triangle

all the angles are 60, so if you split the triangle its 30 at the top

sin 30 is 1/2 so the opposite is 1 and the hypotenuse is 2 (so both sides are 2) - obvs this isnt right but like the principle is oops

use pythag: 2^2 - 1^2 = 3

and root 3 is 1.7 something so no he cant fit

THE CORRECT METHOD: (love how i realise this as soon as i leave)

so area of cross section = 2

area of a triangle is 1/2absinC

2 / 0.5 = 4

4/ sin 60 = 4.618802154

square root that because the triangle is equalatrial = 2.149139864

and then 1/2 x base x height = 2

so height i=2/ 0.5x 2.144

= 1.861209718 so no he cannot fit

CANNOT COPE WITH THE FACT I USED THE WRONG METHOD, hoping ill get some marks

12. Just did foundation calculator paper.found it a lot harder than non calculator. What did people put for the best value crisps question? Also the one with the triangle on top of the right angled triangle? What did u put for angle X? And the paving slab one. How many could fit in the space? Thanks

18. tent question:
19. cant remember whether I put x= when I wrote the values of the quadratic formula question, which I gave correctly otherwise...does this matter or will I be penalised?
does anyone know what the grade boundaries will probably be for this paper for an A or B please. This was quite a tough exam compared to paper 1. Does anyone else have thoughts on this? this is referring to aqa gcse linear B paper 2 higher

I did the same thing as you but I don't understand what was wrong with the method?
