    no bobby is right, go to https://www.desmos.com/calculator and copy/paste y=x^2\left(3-x\right) and y=\left(x-2\right)^2\left(5-x\right) into the left side.

    The curve hasn't been just shifted though?

    This looks like the correct graph to me, hence the answer was (x-2)^2(5-x)

    for the disguised quadratic substitution I got values of 3 and 1/2 but squared instead of ^4 - how many marks do you think I will lose?

    I put x equal to y^1/4 and i got y=1/16 and 81

    Grade boundary discussion. What are we all thinking? I reckon 61/72 for an A.

    Guys the answer to the last question was 27, but for some stupid reason, I left the answer as:

    8 x (√27/12)^3

    Now, I checked on my calculator, and it is equal to 27, but I'm not sure about whether my form is acceptable. My intermediate working was all right, so do you think that they will dock marks, and if so, how many?

    I think (and hope) it'll be in the high fifties for an A

    Indices: Q5 pt 2:
    2^13/2
    Because:
    it was 8(2^4/3) = 2^3 x 2^4/3 = 2^13/3.
    Quite sure its correct as lots of people around me got the same answer

    Got 27 for last Question, although i left it as a surd.

    Im also sure the radius was 0<r<=2
    As when you put y=0 into the circle equation, you got x=-2
    Given the centre of the mini circle was at the origin, and had to be within the larger circle, the furthest it could have been was 0 -> -2 giving it a radius of 2 or less? It was only 2 marks so I cant see how it would be more complex than that?

    Hoping grade boundaries low (56-58), definitely much harder than past papers. Everyone was of the same opinion, few of further maths kids didnt finish it and theyre the 100UMS type.
