There is another way to prove the stretch by rearranging the first equation given. See attached working, I went through this with a friend after the exam That's over complicated I would say, have a look at what I replied before.

Allow me to explain myself:
You could do the sum of the first three numbers using the formula (which is what I presume you used), or you could just figure them out (26, 24, 22) because it was an arithmetic series so subtracting two wasn't that hard :P

I said it was like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut because if you used the formula to calculate the sum of the first three, you made yourself a hell of a lot more work and more room for error.
Yeah I didn't clock about the first and second terms so I used the sum formula. Think I got it right though so it's calm 0

3)a) differentiate something to get 3x-1/2 -1 
b) find y co-ordinate of the maximum point M M(9,6) 
c) equation of normal to curve at P i think P was (5,6) y=-2x+13 
d) the normal to curve at P is translated by (0,k) find value of k, k = 5.5 
I beleive part d), the vector was (k,0), and the answer (the one I got atleast) was -5.5

I thought it would be the most intuitive, as this just needs rearranging. Each to their own methods however Ye at first glance it does look like a stretch in y direction as a lot of people did, but when you see that the 9 has changed to a 1 you know something not right! This is what I did:

So we started with y=sqrt(x^2+9)
and went to y=3*sqrt(x^2+1)
Ignore the y for now.
Square both equations to get x^2+9 -> 9*(x^2+1)
Then we get x^2+9 -> 9x^2+9
ignore the 9 and look what happened to x
We went from x^2->9x^2
We want to see what happened to x, not x^2
so next sqrt both, and we end up with:
x-> 3x, therefore a stretch by a third in x direction! 0

Because k is a vector it is negative of what is in the equation... so it was --k which is +k... if you look at the graph it gave you, it needed to move right not left so had to be positive (just to check)

How did you get -2 for a and 10 for d for the arithmetic series question? I got some long numbers like 10.1756 and when I plugged them into the formula I still got 8 so my final answer for the sum question was something like 138?

Or just add 28 to the sum of the u2 and u3 which was already given 0

It is a correct way of doing it. If you can't see it this way, then look at my way attached above that gives the same answer 0

Predicted Grade Boundaries

A - 61
B - 56
C - 51

Was easier than last year but not the easiest paper there's been.
Hey

I think I messed up both C1 and C2 papers and I am very upset about my self. I was wondering, to get an overall B grade in AS maths what do you need to get across all papers inclucding M1? And what would you need to get a C overall? Please reply.

Neither did I, but it checks out.

In x isnt it the opposite, so moving right it a negative value?

Either way im sure it was (k,0) not (0,k) like in the OP

For a B overall you need 70% UMS overall the AS level, meaning if you were to get 100% in M1, you would only need 55% in C1 and C2
