    Has anyone found answers to the 1996-2006 papers? Or are you not marking those?

    Ive done most of the MAT papers now and I've been doing well, but 2013 has f***** me up its a lot harder than all the previous ones. Can anyone help explain all of part ii) to me on the attached question? I'm struggling to understand what the question even wants me to do. Thanks guys.

    For (ii)(a), proceed as in (i) but now looking at

    f(t) - f(1-t) = t

    and try to solve for f(t).

    For c) try expanding the RHS and rearrange into forms you are familiar with. For instance, the RHS contains t^3 so you might consider setting f(t) to be something to do with t^3.

    Sketch the graph, or use the identity cosx=1-2(sin(x/2))^2 to get a quadratic in sin(x/2).

    Sketching the graphs is the way to go. 1-sin(x/2) is obtained by applying the following transformations to sinx:

    - horizontal stretch of a scale factor 2 (so that the period is now 4pi)
    - reflection about x axis
    - translation of 1 unit upwards

    You should see that there are 4 points of intersection (x=0, x=pi/3, x=5pi/3, x=2pi) so the answer is d).

    This is the 1998 paper by the way.

    What's the way to solve simultaneous equations in three variables including quadratics without using matrices?

    You don't, unless there's a trick somewhere.
