    Log3(3b+1)-log3(a-2)=log3(1/3)
    Log3(3b+1/a-2)=log3(1/3)
    3b+1/a-2=1/3
    3b+1=(a-2)/3
    3b=((a-2)/3)-1
    b=((a-2)/9) - 1/3

    SOMEONE HELP FOR THE LOGS PART B

    I SEPARATED THE 2^2X+5 TO (2^X)2+5 -7(2^X) AND MADE Y=2^X

    FROM THERE I GOT Y^7-7y=0 AND SOLVED FROM THERE WILL I LOSE ALL MARKS????

    Yeah I think so. 2^2x+5 is the same as
    2^2x • 2^5. So you get 32y^2 -7y=0 I think which let to x = -2.19

    log3(3b + 1/a - 2) = - 1
    3^-1 = (3b + 1)/(a - 2)
    (3b + 1)/(a - 2) = 1/3
    3b + 1 = 1/3(a - 2)
    3b + 1 = a/3 - 2/3
    3b = a/3 - 5/3
    b = (a - 5)/9

    That's what I did

    Looks like you did a terrible job, at making the Mark scheme official.

    Looks like edexcel have still got to update their template and include examiner comments like they normally do once the results are in and make small adjustments where necessary

    I'm in the same boat as you. I think I'll just convince my teachers that I can get an A* next year because they originally thought I would. It depends what you got on C1 and C2 but Stats generally is either a love it or hate it paper. I'd say really concentrate and normal
    distribution and probability.
    Vvs1 usually has a bunch of small questions which are linked together so you have to be extra careful because you won't be given follow through marks so if the first part is wrong then the second 3rd so on are most probably wrong too.

    I got something like 28/6 and got like 4000 and something?? It still worked though, so what does this mean?
    I don't even know anymore, that question ****ed me over. Its only 4 marks though so it shouldn't be that big of a deal
