Thanks! But how come the marks don't add up?

I didn't include the proofs.

Add in how many marks each of the proofs were at least and it's perfect! Good job man.

5. Here is the tread where I have all the marks and all the questions, http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...691&p=65157957 <-- Go there to comment on them (they are from memory/calculator history so may be slightly off.)
6. You had to put your 16.7 value for x back into the origional equation to find the perimeter.
7. That wasn't bad. They have asked a lot worse questions in the past
8. (Original post by M8ty)
That was so easy😂
Expect grade boundries to be high.
You must be stupid to have not got at least 70+
Ok somebody is feeling cocky, sorry not everyone has a mistake free brain
9. (Original post by shayefc)
can anyone remember the total marks for Q9?
yes it was 15 marks.. if you got all of it right, that 20UMS in the bag
10. Would I lose a mark if I didn't put + C on the integration question? I thought we didn't need it in C2?
11. Completely ran out of time
12. I got the difference between u9 and u10 negative does that matter
13. I did that too actually stressing so much

no

Guys it asked for P not x, so 17 is wrong because you had to substitute in x=16.633 and then you get 120 to the nearest metre

I actually laughed at everyone saying they got 17...

CLASSSIICCC mistake, they forgot to substitute back into the original formula for P. I literally came so close to keeping my answer of 17 before realizing i didnt sub it back in, yeah the actual answer was 120.something and rounded to 120.

For the Next part you sub this number into the second differential.

P'' = 2000/x^3 = 0.0*something tiny but bigger than zero*

because P'' > 0 (and P' = 0) we know its a minimum point.

I used mod notation; it means turn the answer into a positive if its negative.
I then wrote underneath the actual negative difference just to be sure of the mark
17. (Original post by Hangk13)
What did everyone get when substituting their x value into the 2nd differential to show it was a minimum point? (very last question part e)

I got a really small decimal??
0.4 something something

Hate to sound like a **** but totally agree hahaha, am resitting and was super happy at the number of year 12s looking like they had just been hit by a bus, sorry guys

it was like 1.5 x 10^-3, i remember. 0.4 is way too big but i dont think the size matters, just as long as its bigger than zero

Ah well, pretty sure I can afford to lose one mark
