# AQA A Level Maths Core 2 - 25th May 2016 [Exam Discussion] watch

1. (Original post by goofyygoober)
the least value is 2 because the least value for cosx is -1.
Therefore, 5+3cosx=2
cosx=-1
and you can solve
Argh silly I didn't see that. Thanks

how many marks was 9a. worth?
4marks
3. (Original post by tajtsracc)
The 3rd transformation question was a stretch in the y-direction by a scale factor 3, right?

Also, as someone else asked, how many marks are lost if you didn't do anything correct beyond 5 + 3cosθ?
Stretch in y-direction by sf 3 is correct!!!
4. What did you guys get for the coefficient of X^10? I got something like 1648
Also, what did you get for the perimeter for the triagnle/sector thing?

That's good, I saw someone post earlier that it was an x-direction stretch by s.f. 1/3 and I started worrying lol
6. Also, on the first question for part B I got the wrong answer but got the method right I think, would that still get 2/3?

Ye -1648

And 13.8

9. What did you find for the value of k? Does anyone remember?

To be honest, it was a poorly worded question in my opinion, I wasn't sure what they meant by "least possible value", good thing I did assume it meant the lowest possible value, so I got the value as 2 and x=pi.

I got -1648 and the perimeter one I got 13.8(3s.f)

I Wrote that but it's wrong, the reason it is 1/3 in x is because you would get ( (3x)^2+9)^1/2 which you can then factorise out the nine and when you square root it, gives u the new expression with the three on the outside.

Mine was negative too .in the thousands

11/2
Also, on the first question for part B I got the wrong answer but got the method right I think, would that still get 2/3?

I got -1648 and the perimeter one I got 13.8(3s.f)
Nice, I got both of those too, looks I'm on track for a strong A-grade then!
17. You!

Go and vote

Oh yeah that's what I meant 😊
I think I got the same for the perimeter too .
19. Wasn't K = -5.5 as the tangent was to the left of the max point?

What is the original function for x?
Is it (x^2+9)^1/2 or (x^2+1)^1/2?
