# AQA Further Maths FP1 June 5th 2015 watch

1. I couldn't do part b of the series question 😩
2. Give me a fking decade to do that... Still wouldn't be able to get close to 75 ://// WTF
3. (Original post by JahJah)
That was sexual. Did everyone else get lambda as 2/3 and k as 39 in the series question ??

Yes....
But the cubic didn't much the first equation given in the question so I was like what the ****

You reckon it was harder that last year's?
Yes..better be harder and low boundaries...

4. I got k as 39 for the series one
5. Did anyone else get z=-4 for that complex number one too?

Do you remember what the cubic was? I got one which seemed reasonable but couldn't find a solution.

I got it to match it in the end, you may have had an error in your calculation

You ended up forming the cubic from right at the start and from that knew it was 39 or 40 and the inequality said it had to be < 0 so it was 39
9. for the roots alpha^2 and beta^2, what did people get? did it have to be imaginary numbers?

......I didn't have time to check...

Yes
11. For the imaginary number one. For a+b i got for but I then put ab=5 and I believe this is wrong

I got imaginary
1+-root(45/4) or soemthing

Yeah all the answers ive heard were complex

Yes. Got the quadratic as 4x^2 + 45 = 0, wasted most of my time checking that because I'd never seen them use imaginary roots.

Haha same, i simplified the surd for part c and thought it looked very wrong but glad other people have got the same answer

Think the surd came down to 3/2root(5)i?
17. That exam was a flipping screwjob 😅😅😅 ive dropped at least 10 marks
18. (Original post by -jordan-)

Awww yes I got that answer, thought it was brutal for only 2 marks though
19. I think that was harder than last years paper.

This is what I got too. The root of X is -a and -b so x^2 = a^2 and b^2, and they're looking for a^2 and b^2.

So you should've got something like a^2 = -45/4 = b^2

You didn't actually have to involve imaginary numbers
