I didn't say it was wrong. :confused:

I was just showing them that 12*pi*ln(25)=24*pi*ln(5)
I know, but you should ALWAYS check equivalent values on a calculator; tip

What did people actually get for the first question?

For reference the first question was: |3x + 4a| = 5a, where a is a positive constant.

I just did +- (3x+4a) =5a, and got 3x = a and -1/3x= a
This is the correct answer (assuming you typed the question right, I didn't take the exam). However, I would imagine you would have to give x in terms of a, ie. right

x = a/3 and x = -3a as a would probably be the constant and x is the variable. However, this would not lose you many marks.

Question, and probably a stupid one at that. Everyone seems to have put that it was f(x) that had an inverse. I, being an idiot, forgot about e^x being the inverse of Lnx, so I worked out the inverse of g(x) instead. Thing is, it seemed to work. Anyone care to explain to me why that's not a valid inverse?

g(x) had an x^2 in it so it isn't a one-to-one function there is no inverse.

Like if you have x^2=4 you don't know if x=2 or x=-2.

It's not valid as g(X) was a many-to-one function so the inverse would be a one to many equation and so wouldn't be a function.

Aha. Totally didn't think about that. Damn, that's another 3 marks thrown away.

It Was Not A One-One Function

Needs To Be One-One To Define Its Inverse

I got that.

I divided the two rates.
I'm afraid I was actually doing the MEI C3 exam so you'll have to ignore what I said...

who did question 6i? i could not work out what dy/dx simplified to! i got 3\left(x^{3} -4x^{2} +2\right) - \left(3x+4 \right)\left(3x^{2} -8x \right)/{\left(x^{3} - 4x^{2} +2 \right)^{2}}

is this right? how would you simplify it?

edit: also, how many marks would i get for this working? the question is out of 4

Make it equal zero so therefore you can get rid of the denominator. Then multiply out the brackets and then rearrange

Mr M is a member of TSR whose profession/job is a Mathematics teacher so he got access to the paper, attempted it in his own time (not usually more than 20 minutes ) and then puts the answers up.

Being a teacher, respected member and frequent face in the Mathematics forums, his answers are trusted and appreciated

You should get all the marks, minus 1.

So if the question was worth 9, you should get a respectable 8

LOL WAT DOES EVERY THINK IS A JUSTIFIED OR LIKELY GRADE BOUNDARY FOR THIS EXAM?

personally i think an A could be 45/72
I reckon it will be more like 48-50
Everyone said they found it hard but looks like theyve all got the right answers unlike me :\

Just looked at the answers and i would give myself about 46/ 72 and i was being generous!
Bloody brilliant, needed an A as well

Hello retake!

Made a right mess up of that exam. Need an A* for my uni offer as well so looks like a resit is in order. Hopefully they'll lower the boundaries though :/

Got the Cot(o) = 4 question entirely wrong, and the very last Q, last part I made a stupid error (forgot to sub the x-value back in to get the range). Also think I've got one of the G(x) F(X) questions wrong, the one where it was differentiate (lnX)^2 + 8 or something... I put 2lnX like an idiot...

So yeah, I'd guess that's what, 12 marks lost :/? Definitely no A* for me D:
