    lol yeah for Vn+2 it was k,2k,3k,4k,5k
    The Un+2 all of them were 4

    So for the sum of the first 20 terms I got 20*4=80

    Well a lot of people were saying that 2 questions had k = 11

    and k+2k+3k+4k+5k-165
    15k=165
    k=11 thats what a lot of people got

    yh you should get full marks. bit of a sneaky question that one, originally i worked out the x coordinate with -1/2 but then realized that was the normal grad and had to use the reciprocal (2)

    **** MY LIFE

    I was hoping for near full UMS and I wasn't expecting such a solid paper where it was so easy to slip up.

    Honestly I ****ed up the P^2 inequality, total salary, 10b and a few others, partly because I didn't have enough time because they were such weird answers I kept double checking to see if they were right!

    so upset I can't even lie, my own fault but damn edexcel why you do this
    I messed up on those questions too but for the p question don't you get a mark for removing p out of the bracket? :s hopefully there's follow through marks in the total salary question

    do you mean at year k they earnt 32000 because that is correct
    yes the year k was 32000, they wanted k
    so knowing year 1 is 17000 and d=1500

    17000+(k-1)1500= 32000

    (k-1)15000=15000

    k-1 = 10

    However I have a horrible feeling I put something like 8 down.
    k=11

    Sorry if this sounds stupid, but are the grade boundaries based on simply the percentage of students who say got over the 60 mark.. so if loads of people got over 60 then the grade boundary for an A would be high and vice versa..is that how they work is there more to it?
