    T to the center and AT form a right angle triangle, as it is a normal to a tangent. So then you could use what you know, AT is 6 or whatever it said and the radius you know is root65 so then just had to use Pythagoras
    AT was 4, so 65 + 4^2 = 81. Root 81 = 9.

    √65 for the radius, so 9 for AT.
    Yes ... Don't want to sound smug but i think i got 75/75 ... Wbu?

    I'd really like an A - so 65 + would be nice. Did I get it? I think so.

    Ok thank you, no problem

    Question to whoever can answer:

    On the integration question where it asked to find area of shaded region, I integrated the equation for line PQ, but instead of using the x-values for P and Q as my limits, i realised too late that I used the x-values for P and R. Had i used the right values my answer would've been correct, but unfortunately it was not. Do you think i would get any methods marks or have i lost all three there?

    I'm just seriously kicking myself for making such a silly error that has probably cost me 3 marks.

    For question 8 I'm pretty sure they gave DY over dx as 54 + 27x - 6x^2 then you had to find the second derivative and from that prove x = -1.5 had a minimum. This right?

    You have to work out the length of AC and the distance is the radius. I got it wrong too but my maths teacher explained it to me

    On question 6c there was no need to label the x intercepts as the question stated only the y intercept.

    That's what I remember as well, and it worked out to zero when i substituted -1.5 into it, HOWEVER, i used the cancelled down version where it was 18+9x-2x^2, so for the second derivative i used 9-4x instead of 27-12x, therefore my answer was 15 instead of 45, which was still more than zero so i showed it was a minimum, but do you think I'd have lost marks there?

    I think I sadly lost around 8 marks, as I ****ed up, despite the fact I have been getting 100ums all year which makes me really upset I think I can still get an A tho on this exam of the grade blindsides at low, what do u think?

    Haha I did the exact same thing - even drew a diagram. But C being the midpoint does seem to be the correct method though sadly, but it'd be great if we still got 2/2 marks for it anyway.
    Did the same,we pretty much did it like a vectors question which is C4 :P

    I'd think you lose 1 but not too sure too be honest

    what did you lot get for the integration "shaded area" bit? I got something stupid low. like 1.75 I think it was
    I got 11.25 :/

    Ok thanks. I guess one isn't too bad. Hopefully.
