Pretty sure 1c rounded to 1.602...
I dont recall ever being asked to round numbers. it just says "state your answer to 1/2/3 decimal places" :/

how do you rearrange in to find b in terms of a?

Geometric:
b) 256
c) 1.601

Binomial:
A = 16
k = 7/2
B = 936

Integration:
S = 24.3

Trapezium:
a) 7
b) 20.75
c) R = 5.75

Factor theorem:
a) 5
c) (x + 2)(3x + 2)(2x - 1)

Differentiation(Q10):
a) 1/3PIx^2
d) Minimum = 120m
c) x = 16.63... => f''(x) = 0.437 > 0

Trig identities:
a) Theta = 8/15Pi , -2/15Pi
b) x = 194.5, 345.5

Circle:
a) root(34)
c) 3x + 5x - 95 = 0

Log:
i) (a - 5)/9
ii) -2.19

Does anyone know how many marks the 'find K ' and 'find B' questions were for the binomial?

what did you have to plug in to the trapezium rule??

And to do so would involve rounding. If you are giving your answer to 3dp you will have to round the last dp up or down.

It was the difference between ar^9 and ar^10 wasn't it?
a = 64
r = 3/4

Can someone confirm?
is it not 1.602 to 2dp??

What is the first part of the log question? Can someone tell me the question and answer for it?

**** if you're right then that's like -5 or more marks for me O_O

ahhh man i got the intergration question wrong i plugged in root3 instead of 9 will they do error carried forward or did i get the whole question wrong??

thanks

Did the second trig question in radians, still used identities and got it to cosx = 1/2 (I think) and solved but obviously my answer is in radians, reckon I'll drop many marks?

It depends on the markscheme, but you might get the M (working) marks but not the A marks.

You lose no marks for putting dy/dx instead of dp/dx right??

2 marks each, so 4 in total. I know because that was the only question i knew i ****ed up at the time

It seems like you went wrong with squaring

x^(1/2) = 3

This is basic algebra. If you square this equation you get x = 9. You moved across the power of a half and thought it meant to square root the other side. However, when you move from one side to another, it should do the reverse. The opposite of square root (^1/2) is to square

What was that on the log question about just solving mathematically or graphically?

Edexcel usually awards M marks for wrong mode on calculator but the process needs to be correct. However, you won't be able to get any answer marks.
