I got this too
Yes, it is
2. (Original post by h3rmit)
I used -1 and 3 as my limits, the stationary point of 1 was a maximum and didn't touch the x axis from inspection

I think I got 6.73, though I may have answers mixed up
Yes I used them thank god! Aah that explains my confusion as I knew there were three roots from the previous question but was confused that only two touched the x axis.
I got 6.73 as the answer to something else I'm pretty sure but the integration question wanted it in exact form, I got 512/15
3. For the second last part I got k=1 and a=2.5, is this correct? I basically worked out that half the period was the first two points added together, then went on from there to find a.

I too got the answer but at worse you would get -1 for having the correct decimal to 3sf.
5. Also yeah N=38 as you can't have a decimal term number but if N=37 then the sum of the arithmetic is less than 1200 (the sum to infinity of the geometric progression). You would only loose one in that case too I believe. The question I found the worst where the first 3 parts of 8. Probably got par i) and iii) correct but I had a total mind blank on ii). I don't know if it's because I did a lot more prep for this exam but I found the C2 paper much easier than the C1.
6. What was the answer to part 8ii ????? That stretch transformation of y=3^x-2
7. unofficial mark scheme?

3^x-2 is the same as (3^x)(3^-2) as you add the powers so I think it's a stretch SF 1/9 parallel to y axis.
9. The answer is + or - root3. Did it after with a maths teacher. Your expansion should of given the coefficient of x^2 to equal 9k^2. When the exam stated this eqauls the constant, they meant the constant of the expasion (the number without any xs, 27) as this stays the same no matter what. So you equate 9k^2 to 27 to get the answer. This also makes sence as the question stated give exact answers.

Now you put it like that, why didn't I get it😱
For the second last part I got k=1 and a=2.5, is this correct? I basically worked out that half the period was the first two points added together, then went on from there to find a.
With a period of 2pi/a I got a=5/3 and k= root3/2 I think.
12. (Original post by gsdfghgfhfg)
What did you get for Q9 A AND K
A=3/5
K=√3/2 ?????? (Root 3, Divided by, 2)
I think thats what i got actually
13. (Original post by Sourestdeeds)
With a period of 2pi/a I got a=5/3 and k= root3/2 I think.
Think I did some for the rearranging wrong but hopefully I would have got 1 or 2. Actually I know what happened, didn't add the two pis together when I was working out half the period from the points- douh. That is only 1 actual mistake so hopefully only -1 :P.

Examiners only allow in the y axis for reflections, and -3 works too if the multiplying two is used a power before logging

unofficial mark scheme?

1) 1+1=2
2) 6x5-32
3)21-50=47
cant remember the rest

Hope this was some what helpful

1) i think it was based off knowing the factors of addition something allong the lines of 1+1

You are probally right but when i tried -3 on my calculator it gave me an error and based on my experiance from past papers they only like the single answer that also works on the calculator.And I am not sure about the stretch because that is the first thing that came to my head just hope that its right or i get some marks 😞😞
