    You've integrated a trig expression so have to use radians.
    Hmm. Annoying if you're correct. I plugged in my value again and 27.1 is correct. 0.46 wouldn't sound right if they wanted it years. I guess we'll wait for Arsey.

    If i got about 55/75, what UMS do you reckon that would be?? I'm hoping it's over 70 UMS??

    It would be radians because you used calculus to get it - degrees and calculus don't mix;

    phew! I thought that was the norm so that's why I used it.

    So... my answer is right then...?? (Come on arsey my man...)

    Help!!

    How many marks would I lose for putting 32In2^2 + 32In2 -12 instead of 32In2^2 - 32In 2 +12
    help!! Pls

    27.1 when you use degrees
    0.473 when you use radians

    Hi people could someone answer this since I need an a* in maths for uni..... Basically up to the last question I dropped 4 marks then on 8b I differentiated 3^2x and stuck in the correct limits and did the rest correct but I'm thinking this is a big maths error, how many marks will I loose , the qu was out of 6. Thanks
    someone answer this please!

    That is not technically correct; as long as you carry the π/180, it is possible to use degrees.

    it doesn't say anything about using degrees?
    MY HEAD IS SPINNING RIGHT NOW

    I saw one guy on about using degrees and getting 27.1 years, which made me doubt my own and then think well 0.4 is a weird answer.. now people are making me think I'm right again.

    *fingers crossed come on arsey*

    Did you use pi, and substract the volume of the cone?

    I wrote both down just in case (checked them with the equation and both work). But he's right, calculus with trig ALWAYS uses radians (unless specifically stated), though apparently in past papers they have accepted both as an answer. You'd only lose up to one mark for using degrees.

    If you use calculus then the angle has to be in radians so dw your answer is correct

    As long as the volume of the cone was correct, and the coordinate of Q was correct, meaning that everything else was correct, I assume that you could lose maximum three marks. I believe that 68 will still be an A*.
