# Edexcel GCSE Mathematics A Higher Paper 2016 Unofficial Markscheme

1. Everything right but
X=-1.1 and 5.1
X=-1.7 and 4.7
Angle MST 69

100,25,4
Final questions is (3-root6)/12

How many marks dropped is that?

SO happyy!!
2. (Original post by #1Mathlete)
Probably just 1 for the 100cm"2
I wrote 100/25 Pie
Does that count for another mark?
3. what was the answer for the last question and the simultaneous graph questions, please.
4. (Original post by 34908seikj)
1 I'd say since you got the square correct, but didn't get the circle correct. it wasn't 25, it was 25pi

then 100-25pi == 4(25-pi)
I meant that I had 100/25 PIE
Does that count for another mark or no?
5. For the question on graphs, I put -1.2 and 5.2- will I still get the marks? Is there a range of answers for those?

If you had 100/25pi you MIGHT get an extra mark for the 25pi, idk though.
7. The Circle Theorems question is worth 5 Marks if you're wondering
8. (Original post by mysticfalls)
what was the answer for the last question and the simultaneous graph questions, please.
For the last question I got (3-root6)/12
9. I put -1.2 and 5.2 for the question with the graph, so is there a range for the correct answer? Or is it only -1.1 and 5.1

Ok, do you remember question 12b?

There will be a given boundary but it wont be very big (maybe 0.2 either side)
12. For that question where it said use the graph to estimate these solutions: for one of them I completed the square and solved them. Would I lose marks? I panicked
13. Can someone explain 17(?)(b) to me? I just put X=2 because I thought it was the vertex of the curve only?
14. (Original post by jamesM22)
Ok, do you remember question 12b?

I don't remember having to construct a triangle, just a line perpendicular to AB from point C? is that the question you're talking about?
15. yeah I got that!

For one of the questions, I stupidly wrote 4.0 instead of 0.04, however I wrote 0.04 in my workings, do you thing they would still mark it correct?
17. What was question 17 and 18?
18. (Original post by student563)
yeah I got that!
is it correct?
19. [QUOTE=LogicalFallacy;65190495]Hey, if anybody is willing to contribute the answers, and preferably the questions, then I shall set up a mark scheme for you all. Thanks in advance!

Can people please attach question numbers to their answers? Method would be appreciated.

This will be updated as I go along.

Question 1. What is the volume of the prism? (2 marks)

Area of face = 30cm²
Length of prism = 25cm.

30cm² x 25cm = 750cm³

Question 2a. Reflect shape in line X = -1 (2 marks)

Accept correct reflection.

Question 2b. Rotate shape 90° anticlockwise. (2 marks)

Accept correct rotation.

Question 3. What is wrong with the questionnaire? Give two reasons. (2 marks)
Attachment 538813
'Too vague (i.e. not 1-2, 3-4 etc.)' and 'no time frame (i.e. not per week, per month, etc.)' are accepted.

Create a better survey for him to use. (2 marks)

Why is his maths class not a good sample? (1 mark)

'Too small' and 'may be biased' are accepted,

Question 4. Simplify. (all of question 4, 6 marks)
P2 x P5 = P7

G6 ÷ G4 = G2

(K3)2 = K6

10-5m

Factorise n2 - 7nn(n-7)

Question 5. Estimate 892 ÷ 18.9 (2 marks)
Round to 1 significant figure

900 ÷ 20 = 45

Question 6. A teacher is picked at random. 3/5 chance they are female. 36 are males. (3 marks)
How many teachers are there altogether?

2/5 of teachers are male. 36 are male.

2/5 of total = 36
2 x 18 = 36
18 x 2 = 90.

Question 7(?). Point is the midpoint. Where is the other end?

Question 10(?). Can the floor be varnished with 3 tins of 2.5 litre varnish and it is 5 m2 per litre. (5 marks)
Attachment 538829

2.5 m x 6 m = 15 m2
2.5 m x 6 m = 15cm2

10 m - (2.5 m - 2.5 m) = 5 m
6 m - 2 m = 4 m

5 m x 4 m = 20 m2

15 m2 + 15 m2 + 20 m2 = 50 m2

5 m2 per litre, 50 m2 ÷ 5 m2 = 10 litres

2.5 litres per tin, 3 tins, 3 x 2.5 = 7.5 litres.

Not enough, 7.5 litres is less than 10 litres.

Answer is 'not enough' with evidence.

Question 11 (3). What percent of his total spending is his rent now?

Question 13(?). How many females visited the art gallery?
66 students went on the trip.

Males - Bowling - 4
Females - Bowling - 6
Total - Bowling - 10

Males - Art Gallery - 9
Females - Art Gallery - 11
Total - Art Gallery - 20

Males - Skating - 10
Females - Skating - 26
Total - Skating - 36

Males - Total - 23
Females - Total - 43
People - Total - 66

Question 14(?).
Attachment 538769
Area of square = 10cm x 10cm = 100 cm²
Area of circle = π5² = 25π cm²
Area of shaded = Area of square - Area of circle = 100 cm² - 25π cm² = 100 - 25π cm²

Question 15(?).

Compare median, interquartile range and range.

200 x 25% = 50
200 - 50 = 150

Question 16(?). (3.5 x 106) ÷ (5 x 10-3)

7x108

Question 17(?).

x = -0.4 or x = 4.4
x = -1.1 or x = 5.1
x = -1.7 or x = 4.7

Question 18(?).
7/5

2 4/5

4/5

Question 19(?).
x < 7

Question 20(?). Solve X² = 4(X-3)²
X² = 4[(X - 3)(X - 3)]
X² = 4[X² - 3X - 3X+ 9]
X² = 4[X² - 6X + 9]

X² = 4X² - 24X + 360 = 4X² - X² - 24X + 360 = 3X² - 24X + 360 = 3[X² - 8x + 12]0 = 3[(X - 6)(X - 2)]

X = 6 or X = +-2

Question 21(?). What is the chance of the match being cancelled when it does not rain?
Attachment 538811
0.8 x 0.05

Question 22(?). What is the angle?

Angles in a triangle add up to 180°, base angles in an isosceles are equal.
180° - 48° - 48° = 84°

Angle at centre is twice angle at circumference.
84° ÷ 2 = 42°

Angles in a triangle add up to 180°, base angles in an isosceles are equal.
(180° - 42°) ÷ 2 = 69°

Question 23(?).
a + b

-a + 3b

¾(a+b)

Point S is on both lines and is the point at which the lines intersect.

Question 24(?).
Table - 100, 25, 4

Question 25.
Attachment 538759

(3-√6) ÷ 12
question 11 with the 36% was 3 marks
20. What if you only compared the range and median for the box plot question? Can you still get three marks?
