I used quotient rule for dy/dt but got slightly diffrent answer
I think we all agree that 1/2e^4 is the answer but I don't think it matters what method you use
2. question 8b, I didn't use the first part of the question and I just did the second part as is and i got something like sin3y - 3ycos3y = -1/9(4+9x) + 1/36 + pi

........ wtf did i do

Some of these r rong mate
Which? They look all good to me according to my memory

-1/2 < x < 1/2 pretty sure this is just mod x < 1/2 ???

Just different way of writing... Doesn't matter

Oh yeah, forgot about the mod, being +/-, never knew you could write it that way

No = 13/35
cos(theta) = 23/35 for a fact cos I got 92/140 initially and then simplified it down to 23/35

Then you worked it out wrong because it was 52/140 simplified to 13/35

i agree... i got 13/35

I left my answer as 328e^2/656e^-2 i think, this is still correct right as it didnt ask for it in a certain form?

As it was (1+2x) we have -1 < 2x < 1 so -1/2 < x < 1/2
D'oh. I guess it's just one mark lost.

Hopefully the examiner bothers to spot that it's indeed a half

first of all how did you get that

second of all all it said waas find dy/dx didnt specifiy simplified form so yous hould get it

Im not sure tbh, i did quotient rule on both x and y and ended up with a 4 tier fraction. Then i subbed t into each line separately and got that answer.
15. you know for the vectors questions? to find the acute angle, was it to find the acute angle between the line 1 and line 2?

You just had to find the cos of the angle between L1 and L2.
17. AQA scan and send our papers to multiple examiners to mark right, and the marks we get is the average of that?, or is it just 1 guy who marks it all
18. I got 13/40....
I did get 52/140, maybe I somehow simplified it wrong or I'm just remembering my final answer wrong
19. Am i the only one that thats ran out of time for q 8

One examiner marks your paper, but a few papers are sent to two examiners at random to judge how accurately they're marking, if they're marked by two maybe they take the average.
I think that's how my teacher said it works, anyway
