    for questio 7 if you got the right answer but didnt use the method which will probably be on the markscheme ( the traingle one) would you still get the marks? i ended up using sin^2 +cos ^2 =1 and then devided by cos^2 and did a whole bunch of other stuff :/

    Mr M, on question 7ai) I left it as 5/root29. Would I loose a mark for not writing it in standard form?

    For question 7 I put the answer in decimal form, correct to three significant figures. Would that mean that I get no marks?

    periodic/repeating is fine
    What about reoccuring sequence of o.5 and 4, thats what I put would I get "reoccuring"


    also for 0.5<x<2 would I have got any marks for x>2 because i calculated that it needed 2 correctly but did put it the right way around

    Hi Mr M,

    For the question that asked us to find the values of y for which the GP was valid, I put the modulus of y is less than something...I can't remember exactly what the number was but is there a correct version of the answer involving a modulus sign?

    Thanks!

    i think you had to realise that bcause tana =sina/cos a then if you drew out a trinagle the bottom length would be 5 the other would be 2 and so the hypotenuse would be squareroot 29 ( pythagoras) so then sin would be the bottom legth 5 over the hypotenuse so the answer is 5/square root 29
    then u can rationalise the denominator but i dont think you had to :/

    im really annoyed i didnt spot that in the exam :/

    Hi Mr M

    Thank again for the mark scheme!
    I got
    7ai) 5 divided by root 29
    ii) 2 root 10 divided by 7 (no minus)

    So so you know if these will be marked correct?

    Thanks again

    6.(iii) \frac{208}{3} (4 marks)

    Mr M
    did qu 6iii) have to be an exact value? I wrote \frac{208}{3} BUT then wrote the decimal version next to it and underlined it do you think I'd get the mark??

    About 7ii)
    after the exam someone told me you need to make it minus because it wanted to obtuse angle.

    I got what you got but then went and did 1-my answer to try and get the obtuse angle :/

    For the ratio one, will 0<y<2 get 1 mark?

    also what do you think the marks for 100ums would be?

    damn i did the exact same.
    For q3 i didn't read the pi part which means i got 3ii wrong too.
    q7 also, I did all of my answers in decimal form instead of surd form.
    I think mr m has stopped responding, so i guess we'll all have to wait till august
