# Edexcel FP2 Official 2016 Exam Thread - 8th June 2016 watch

1. (Original post by Kvothe the arcane)
Thanks Ayman!.

I guess it now (though not directly).

I guess I'll use a temporary sub to make it easier to see. I asked because it was in 2014(R) Q 8.
I think something similar came up in our paper last year.
I might be mistaken.
Think of it as chain rule.

2. does anyone know where i can find fp2 adapted papers like this one? https://8dedc505ac3fba908c50836f5905...%20Edexcel.pdf

4. For part b, they say to solve for -pi < theta < pi, but the answers given go above that boundary. Are these answers correct or are they unnecessary? If so, how many marks would you lose for answers above the boundary?

They are all correct and necessary but yes in the wrong range, the answerers have just been a bit lackadaisical
Maybe 1 mark lost..might even be 0
6. Anyone able to show the second differential? I am absolutely lost..

7. How do you solve these questions:
1. Find the value of z which satisfies both |z+2| = |2z-1| and arg z = pi/4
2. Given that |z+1-i| = 1, find the greatest and least values of |z-1|
8. Few more questions which I cant solve

The wording for these type of questions really confuses me.
1. The transformation T from the zplane where z=x+iy to the w plane is given by w = (1/z+i)
a. Show that the image under T of the real axis in the z plane is a circle C in the w plane. Find the equation of the circle.
b. Show that the image under T of the line x= 4 in the z plane is a circle K in the w plane. Find the equation of the circle.

note that argz = pi/4 implies y = x and y and x are both positive
second one tbh I was always bad at this but the key is to draw a diagram and use your intuition (or, perhaps, knowledge, I only ever had the intuition but you might'n't..) about circles

I hope this is clear enough.

You saviour!! Thank you

for the second one, I can find the minimum and maximum from |z|, which is from the point (0,0) so would the min/max from |z-1| be from (1,0).

Hi, does anybody have a link to the January 2016 IAL paper and mark scheme??
Sorry if this has already been posted, I can't find it anywhere!
Because it doesn't exist. There are no January papers for FP2.

The real axis is y=0
You can express z in terms of u and iv and equate imaginary coefficients noting that y=0

16. Can we use the R papers?

Do they have the same spec?
