# Edexcel C2 20th May 2015 *Official Thread* watch

1. (Original post by Medicjug)
I don't understand the triangle how do you know the other side is x aswell

Posted from TSR Mobile
Oh lol
If you look at the top it's 10 cm
Bottom it's 8cm
Question says they are parallel
10-8 = 2
So each side is 1cm hence x

Look at the range they give you
If it's in pii, then it's radian mode

3. Are solomon papers for C2 worth it?

Are solomon papers for C2 worth it?
I only did three because I don't really have anytime,
I suggest you do a, b and c
I think doing the soloman papers helped for me when I did C1

2(x-2)(x^2+2x+4)

which factorises out to 2x^3 + 4x^2 - 4x - 16 (nice try though)

Are you stupid? expand it out again idiot.

Only because you can't factorise it doesn't mean no one else can. Don't act smart when you clearly can't factorise a simple cubic.

9. And can also be written as 2(x-2)(x^2+2x+4)

11. i find the Solmon press papers are a little harder than the edexcel papers so i find them really helpful.
12. How confident are you guys feeling for the exam tomorrow? I'm so scared I'm going to make the same silly mistakes I made in C1

You can solve it, easily, but the only factorisation possible is to take the 2 out

same. the answers to C1 are online. I got about a C, maybe a D. C1 is supposed to be easiest, I cannot do C2 and I have D1 which I cant do either...

I'm sure you can do them ! Have you been practising enough? You stilll have time to do some C2 past papers and if you don't know how to do a question try examsolutions.net , it's very helpful. Goodluck tomorrow and in your D1 exam xx

Has anyone else tried the June 2014 (R) paper, i thought it was extremely difficult compared to other papers
Hey. I just tried the paper and I also thought it was way harder than the others. I particularly hated question 9a. I don't believe you had to find the area of a triangle, semi circle and rectangle add them up and then awkwardly rearrange to get it in the form they wanted all for 3 marks! You usually get 2 marks just for finding an area of a sector.
19. [QUOTE=ben789;55938829]This video should explain it https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=30&v=Pb0RHOjfQag[/QUOTE]

Funny thing Is I used ar^n-1 and still got the right answer
