how did people find the upper bound needed to find the area of s ?
The curve touched the X axis at two points. One of them was 0 and the other one, to find out what it was you needed to sub in y = 0 into the equation which would give you a value for x

Did anyone else get P is 66? How are people getting 120?
When you differentiated the equation, and made it equal to 0, you get an answer of X = 16.63. If you sub that value of X back into the equation for P, you get an answer of P = 120

I defo did that and got 66 and people I spoke to got similar answers as well.
I can't remember the exact equation for P feel free to remind me but i'm sure it was 66
3. Actually the equation for P was 1000/X+X/12(4pi+36-3root3)

I substituted X into a formula do you reckon i'll get a method for substituting even though it may have been the wrong formula?
5. Does anyone remember the upper bound X coordinate for the 7b integration question?

I think it was 9, I think the answer was 243/10 or 24.3

9. Hi I think there's a mistake in this on question 1c... The difference is definitely not 256 haha. It looks like just an oversight, accidentally putting the answer from 1B there

Yh I didn't make it but I realised. I think it should be 1.602?
11. Yeah I just checked it and that's right (hopefully)
12. for the log question, how many marks out of 4 would i get if make y=2x and gettting 1.38 as the final answer.
y^7=7y
y^6=7
y=1.38

This video really sums up the C2 exam...

That was absolutely hilarious!!
Here's my unofficial mark scheme, with the actual questions.
Wow, fantastic! Thanks so much
15. 1 I mean

16. That markscheme has actually given me confidence.

how the hell was 9 the upper limit . i substituted 0 into the equation and got 4 ?

u don't have to make y=0 bec they already give you the x-axis which is 0,4

and event if you make y=0 the answer will be the same 4 by using the log concept
