Unoffical Mark scheme for C2 AQA 2016

It would help if you could correct the amount of marks in each question if it is wrong please

Questions:

1)a) integrate something to get -36x-1 + ax2 /2 [3]
b) find the value of a when the answer to 1)a) is equal to 16 with limits of 3 to 1, a = - 2 [2]

2)a) Draw the graph of (0.2)x and state where itcrosses axis (0,1)[2]
b) use logarithms to solve (0.2)x = 4 , x = -0.861 [2]
c) describe transformation of (0.2)x onto (5)x reflection in y axis [1]

3)a) differentiate something to get 3x-1/2 -1 [2]
b) find y co-ordinate of the maximum point M M(9,6) [3]
c) equation of normal to curve at P, P was (4,5) y=-2x+13 [3]
d) the normal to curve at P is translated by (k,0) find value of k, k = 5.5 [3]

4)a) show that a+10d=8 [3]
b)sum to 2nd and 3rd term is 50, work out the 12th term of the series D=-2 and A=28, u12 = 6 [4]
c) work out the sum of the 21st term minus sum of 3rd term = 90 [3]

5)a) show that thetha (in radians) was 0.568 [3]
b) work out area of triangle 19.9 [2]
c) work out perimeter of shaded area, first piece of info given -> area of sector = area of shaded area

you had to realise that the area of sector = area of triangle - area of sector
re-arrange to get 2(area of sector) = 19.9 and solve for r to get 5.829
perimeter of shaded = (9-r) + (8-r) + 5 + (length of arc = r*theta)
perimeter of shaded = 13.8 [6]

6)a)trapezium rule to get 65.6 [4]
b) describe transformation of graph y=(x2 +9)1/2 onto y = 5 + (x2 +9)1/2
Translation by (0, 5) [2]
c) describe transformation of graph y=(x2 +9)1/2 onto y=3(x2 +1)1/2 Stretch by scale factor 1/3 in x direction [2]

7)a) expand (1+2x)5 work out p q r, i think p = -10, q= 40 r = - 80 (correct me if im wrong) [3]
b)find the coefficient of x10 in the expansion of (1+2x)^5 * (2-x)^7
it was something like -1648 [5]

8)a)find the value of tan(x) tan(x) = -5/4 [2]
b) values of tanx in the range of 0 to 360 degrees 45, 129, 225, 309 [3]
b) re-arrange 16+9sin2x / 5 - 3cosx into the form p + qcosx and find the min value = 2, this is when x is equal to pi [4]

9)re-arrange something into the form (c)1/2 / d^2 to get 3y y = 1/2 ( m - 12n) [4]
b) find the one and only solution of something, x = 5/2 ( you should get two equal roots i think) [4]

i dont think this paper was too hard, to me it seems harder than last year but at the same time easier lol
MATHEMATICS UNIT MPC2 2015 last year was A 58 B 50 C 42 D 35 E 28
i think this year it will be A 63 B 55 C 47 D 40 E 33

c) work out perimeter of shaded area, first piece of info given -> area of sector = area of shaded area

you had to realise that the area of sector = area of triangle - area of sector
re-arrange to get 2(area of sector) = 19.9 and solve for r to get 5.36?
perimeter of shaded = (9-r) + (8-r) + 5 + (length of arc = r*theta)
perimeter of shaded = 13.6 [6]

6)a)trapezium rule to get 65.6 [4]

c) describe transformation of graph y=(x2 +9)1/2 onto y=3(x2 +1)1/2 Stretch by scale factor 1/3 in x direction ( not 100% sure about this but thats what i wrote) [2]

7)a) expand (2+x)5 work out p q r, i think p was 10 q was -80 and r was 80 (correct me if im wrong) [4]
b)find the coefficient of x10 in the expansion of (2+x)5 * (something else)7
it was something like -1648 [4]

8) find the value of tan(x) tan(x) = -5/4
b) re-arrange 16+9sin2x / 3 - 5cosx into the form p + qcosx and find the min value = 2, this is when x is equal to pi [4]

6c) Is that not a stretch along the y-axis SF 3?

3a) Was something like 6x^(1/2) -x

6c) Is that not a stretch along the y-axis SF 3?
when u differeentiate u should get what i got in the mark scheme

6c i dont think so because think of it like this
y=f(x)
if i applied y=f(1/3 x)
that means i stretch it by sf 3 because it would be 1/(1/3) or 1/a

hence its not the same as stretching in y because you only stretch all x values by sf 3 on the graph but in the equation it is written as 1/3

Hardest c2 I've seen , I'd say grade boundaries the same or lower than last year. I hope around 58-60 for an A and 50-52 for a B

Sorry, I realised I just regurgitated the question instead of the answer. I agree with the answer you got.

Either way for 6c, 2 marks shouldn't be too detrimental. As long as the boundaries are at most 60 for an A I should be alright.

Would you get atleast a mark for showing this?

area of sector = area of triangle - area of sector

I wrote 1/2r²θ = 19.9 - 1/2r²θ

4B

From part a) you know that a + 10d = 8.

Sum of U3 and U2 = 50 so you wrote equations for each (U3 = a + d....) and add them together to get 2a + 3d = 50 (think those were the numbers).

Then you solve simultaneously with equation from part a) to get your a and d values.

For 5c I think it was 13.8?

60-61 for an A imo.
Full ums probably 73?
