    What if for the perimeter question, my x value was 15.6 instead of 16.6 as most people got, but my perimeter was still right (120m)? Would I lose any marks?

    8b) Rules of indices mean that:


    2^2X+5 - 7(2^X)


    2^5 * (2^2X) - 7 (2^X) = 0

    We now have a quadratic in 2^X.

    Let 2^X= X

    Therefore, 32X^2 - 7X= 0

    Factorise: X(32X-7)=0

    Therefore, 32X=7

    X= 7/32.

    As we let X=2^X, 7/32 also equals 2^X

    Therefore, X=log base 2 (7/32)

    Guys last year for edexcel c2 it was 59 for an A THAT paper was easier with only 1 confusing question but not tough where this paper i found had a tough log question and lots of places slightly awkward in questions 9 or 10 is it possible, as this paper in my opinion was harder than last year that the grade bound for an A is like 57 due to what i said

    That's weird because I got the c1 mark scheme the day of the exam, I don't mean the actual mark scheme I mean one a teacher has done
    Yeh, a TSR member called Arsey was famous for uploading model answers two hours after the maths exams. Today, the teacher informed us that Edexcel don't want the model answers to be uploaded.

    I have no idea how you got 120m with the wrong x value.

    Did anyone else get k=28 for the binomial question? Because 2kx gave the difference of 56

    Unlucky. Next time read the question. 'b in terms of a'

    I'm hoping for 74/75 but this was an easy paper compared to June 2015 (look at TSR polls) and the UMS last year was 75/75

    Guys wasn't part a of Q9 = 1/3pi(x^2)????

    because the sector area is 1/2r^2(theta)
    which is 1/2(x^2)(2/3pi)

    = 2/6pi(x^2)
    = 1/3pi(x^2)
    ??
    For Q9 it was = pi x2 /3

    it asked for b in terms of a. it was: b=a/9-5/9
    I got that aswel!!! But apparently its b = (a-5)/9 :/

    Genuinely think you got binomial b) wrong, and therefore c) from follow on.
