    Yep, the chances certainly are slim I have it tomorrow as well. I personally find Apps1 to be the easiest of the 4 papers, but I guess that is a matter or personal preference. We won't be getting much in the way of predictions, but good luck!

    Hi. Do you know if algebraic fractions is applications 1?

    Just done this paper! Think it had some hard questions ... Well awkward questions! But still sure I did fine how did you find it ?
    (Original post by jayg123)
    Did anyone get 31 for the angle question? The only ones i think were completely wrong were linear programming t (i got x +2y = 112 and x=2y), the last histogram question and the anti freeze one. For the flow chart one when it asked for each extra mile there is 5p what did people get as the formula?

    That was sooo hard

    I found the area of each bar and added them together to get the number of people, then took off the area of the first bar.
    160-20=140
    Then 100/160 ×140= 87.5

    Just made an account to compare answers for this exam with the ones i didn't understand, for the ones i weren't 100% sure of I got:

    Stratified sampling question-13
    Histogram percentage question-87.5
    Finding length of rectangle marked x-3.5
    Maximum profit in linear programming-18,800
    Question on Antifreeze -Didn't do as i didn't understand what it meant
    Find angle which was in the kite-36 degrees
    Men who played badminton- 7

    Did i get any of these question right?
    (Original post by Tojsagay)
    Out of those answers, I believe only the linear programming questions (£19000 & something) and the angle question (31 degrees) are the wrong ones.

    Altogether, I thought the test was fairly straight forward. Expecting an A* to be similar to that of last year (87).

    Not sure if I'm right as I hate maths but I put the supermarket was cheaper, as I worked out 1g for each and compared?

    I personally found it much worse than A1. Everyone in my year seems to have written different answers for the questions 🙁

    How did everyone find a2?
    So hard. I didn't have enough time at the end so i missed out the second last question and I also messed up the bearnings. For the last question what did people do. I worked out the lower and upper bound of each and then done the upper bound mass divided by the lower bound volume. But i wasn't sure which bounds to divide by.

    For the last answer i found the upper bound and lower bound answer and formulated an answer by finding the median of them results

    Yep the answer was 2.7, find the upper bound and lower bound, then take them away, divide by 2 and add it to the lower bound answer or take way from the upper bound answer giving you 2.7 g/cm3

    Can someone explain what that test risk question was all about? No one in my year knew what to do for that question, majority of us got the answer £4.80

    That was the hardest question on the paper - i worked out one of the angles was 90 degrees (semicircle one) and then that one was 107 degrees, and one was 17 degrees (107 - 17) but I didn't know where to go from there so i just put 107

    Personally found it alright - some hard questions like the last one about the vectors and the circle theorm, but other than that thought the rest was fine. Loads of people came out the exam saying it was really hard ( most clever people). How did people do the odd proof quesiton

    This is wht I got:
    Let odd numbers be:
    2x+1 and 2m+1
    (2x+1)(2m+1) = 4mx + 2m + 2x + 1
    = 2(2mx + m + x) + 1
    Therefore, it is odd because any number x2 + 1 is odd.
