This is what I did, I was asking for an alternate solution
Oh right. Well it's been given
then

Felix has explained it in another post, hopefully that should help you
yeah it has
Do we need to be able to find volumes of rotation around the y-axis in C4?
Nope. Just around the X.
Edit: For Edexcel anyway.
4. That response doesn't fill me with much confidence as I'm about to attempt it

Well:
is that a rule of something?:c i dunt recognise it

Lol - if and when you do it, your username will be justified

Anymore hints for this question? Proof by example's the only way I can think of right now as well
This is an IMO question. I actually don't know what would work as a good hint but try to factorize a,b,c and d into their primes.

Anyway, proof by example is not the answer really.

Ok, that is ridiculous This thread regularly goes off track because people throw around AEA/ STEP level questions but this thread is not for IMO-level questions - very few people on here have the prerequisite knowledge/ training to attempt questions of that standard....questions like that belong on the proof is trivial thread

It's essentially the same as saying:
I prefer this version
14. (Original post by tigerz)
Sorry, I didn't mean it in that way I was too intrigued and wanted to know.
Well basically they made a typo so it became an unsolvable question, obviously after the exam the examiner would scrap those marks but during the exam you'd think you'd lose them

I dunno, you would know roughly as the boundaries don't change for that specific paper or because its really similar to a past paper? (I'm imagining some complex scenario haha)
Although i'm guessing your the type that would end up pointing out the error and then solve it correctly >.<
I was joking it didn't really offend me!

I still wouldn't try to even it out because I may have made a silly mistake somewhere in the paper

While your question is pretty much redundant in real life, to answer the real question - "would you pick 95 or 96 UMS if you had a choice".

If it made no difference grade-wise, and I had all 100/95 up to then, I'd actually pick 95 for the novelty of having round numbers for all maths modular UMS that might not make much sense but I'm just weird like that I guess

However, if the streak was already broken, so to speak, I'd pick 96. If you'd asked me before results day for the Jan exams, I'd definitely have picked 96.

It's essentially the same as saying:
i dont get how...
1/3ln(x+1/2) doesn't click with me that way ._.
the top isn't the differential of the bottom so um
how does that work

Surely it's too easy to be an IMO question? Unless proof by example isn't allowed for some reason.
