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

In part (b) how to know where to shade? thanks!
Edit: Misread question. See response below
2. (Original post by mariadouglas)
Oh gosh totally 😂 Been up all night, really can't seem to function currently 😝 Thank you though
What did you get for the centre? Mine has turned out to involve root 3 all over the place 😂

Sketch your circle gained from part a) in the w-plane using a dotted line (as its a strict inequality) and shade inside the circle.
That's what I thought but the mark scheme is shading the region outside the circle?

I don't think it is the inside of the circle, choose a convenient point: z = 0 satisfies |z| < 3, but T : 0 0, so |z| < 3 maps to the outside of the circle.
5. i dont get how im to figure out the shaded part in Q6b
https://8dedc505ac3fba908c50836f5905...%20Edexcel.pdf

and Q4b
https://8dedc505ac3fba908c50836f5905...%20Edexcel.pdf

could someone explain that substituting in a 0 method?
6. Hi, I wasnt sure where to ask this, but its on my mind for FP2/3, could someone please explain to me how marks are awarded for using a calculator? So if you use a calculator to solve a quadratic, and get it right but show no working, do you get awarded the marks? Or for numerical integration and that sort of thing? I'm worried if I'm wasting time showing too much working

As far as I understand, you have to show your working in these cases.

Okay thanks

You get:

Which give you cartesian coordinates and .

The lengths between each one are .

Multiply by 3 to get the required perimeter. Not quite sure what the problem is here?
sorry but i was wondering why i can't see many of the pictures you guys post. Can anyone help me with this? is it my computer? thanxx

Please could anyone explain how to do question 19b and 19d here, really struggling with them! Thanks Attachment 540593
sorry mate but how do you do 19a) ?
11. ok quick simple question on particular integrals. for example, take this question: http://www.examsolutions.net/a-level...7&solution=5.1

the mark scheme says to use y=ke^(-x) as particular integral

however when I did it I noticed that e^(-x) appears in the complementary function, so i used y=kxe^(-x) as my PI. why is this not necessary?

It doesn't appear in it's own, what appears is , or something like that.

i think i've forgotten how to use latex

Because e^-x doesn't appear in the CF. It would be an issue if it was like 5e^-x but in the cf if you multiply out the brackets it's acosxe^-x +bsinxe^-x which isn't the same thing

makes sense, thanks!

You will only have to use kxe^ax or kx^2e^ax if they tell you to use it as a PI, otherwise, you use e^ax
16. Can someone explain to me/tell me for Polar questions: Heres the problem, I do not understand when you have to sub in y=rsin(theta) or x=cos(theta) into questions with a polar equation which is r= whatever. Sometimes in the questions they just do dr/d(theta) but sometimes they sub in x or y then differentiate but I do not understand why.

do you mean when they say in the questions the line is parallel and perpendiuclar to the curve.

If it is parallel you do rsintheta=y then differentiate

If it is perpendicular you do rcostheta=x the differntiate

Hope that helps

sometimes they say d/d(theta) but this will be the same thing as differentiating the function y=r sin(theta) or x = r cos(theta).

They just havent put dy/d(theta) but it's the same thing.

As the previous person said,

dy/d(theta) = 0 for parallel to initial line
dx/d(theta) = 0 for perpendicular to the initial line

If you have got the FP2 edexcel book it should be in Chapter 7. Or you could also check out examsolutions.

sorry mate but how do you do 19a) ?

Plug in Z = 0 +2i into the locus and simplify. Then find its argument. Show that the argument is pi/4.
