    I just can't believe I forgot what inversely proportional meant :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

    That's going to haunt me forever. 9 marks down the drain.

    :banghead:
    I did the same . Hopefully we pick up a method mark here or there. I'm sure we'll get a few for attempting to seperate the variables etc.

    In the region of 65-69/72 I think (and hope) - but I'll be happy as long as I get an A (80/100 UMS) - you?
    I think I have lost between 3-10 marks. This is me being hopeful. I just hope that I will have enough to get an A* overall in maths.

    would you lose marks for leaving ur intergrated answer in terms of u, I got the right answer as most people but I just didn't sub back what u was? I hope they aren't that harsh :L
    yh for q6 ) i didnt change it to terms of x , because the intergral had no limits so i thought theres no point really, if i lose marks for this ..

    It does. 2.7^2/3 = 1.94 and 4.86^2/3 = 2.87
    Yes but (a +b)^n is not the same as a^n +b^n

    Really struggled, it was so difficult! Everyone seems to be finding it okay gah

    I think that this would be okay because the question never specified what type of numbers "a" and "b" needed to be (i.e. rational, integer etc.) when in the form a ln(b).
    If they were picky, they could certainly say rational only. Because ln(root3) isn't exacly nice is it? It's much nicer as 0.5ln3. Remember, people used to have logarithm tables to do conplex calculations before calculators so ln (root 3) would probably not have been on the list!

    Yeah ... I put -k instead of 1/k ... sigh.

    I just didn't know what it meant

    I don't think we'll lose marks for it, if we do that's very harsh.

    I just looked at it completely not understanding and just worked it out as if it was proportional :mad:

    Did the question say you have to?
    If it didn't I think you'll be ok

    All the things I did wrong:

    -Forgot cos x = 0. I am an idiot.
    -Didn't integrate tan2x properly. I am thick.
    -Didn't know what inversely proportional meant. I really am thick.
    -That means I got the whole of q8 wrong.
    -Worked out the obtuse instead of acute angle, therefore I got the volume wrong.
    -I don't think I got t=1 .... Sigh.
    -That means I got q9 all wrong. More marks down the drain.
    -Couldn't understand number 10 at all. No marks there.

    Yeah. I really am beating myself up about this ... I need an A in maths to get into uni!!!!!!!

    Does anyone know how they worked out x=0.1 for q10? I just guessed 0.1 and it gave me the correct fraction lol

    sin(171) = sin(9)
    or whatever the values were, they are equal so if you did the rest right your volume should be fine. I left it as 171 as well....

    :console: I just couldn't remember what it meant ... I thought it might have meant k was a minus ... how stupid.
    What you did was probably better than what I did. We obviously both did it wrong, but mine was doubly wrong
