    For the last question, i used the CAST diagram with 60 degrees and i got the same answers but in degrees rather than radians. How many marks will i lose?
    Also, for 5bi, i got the answer but i ended up writing 4a^2 + 6a -2, would i lose any marks for doing that?

    Hi

    For question 3ii) How do you know what the constant was? I used 3, but i know now that it's wrong, can you show the method please.

    If i left 9iii) as

    x = (1/3π)/a

    And

    x = (4/3π)/a

    would i still get full marks?

    Thanks

    Last question - you might only lose 1.

    5bi. They *might* ignore subsequent working or you might lose some marks - I can't say really.

    The constant was given in part i) as part of the expansion.

    You will probably get full marks on the last question.

    For 8ii) I wrote stretch parallel to the x-axis by scale factor x/(x-2) will this get any marks because it produces the same graph or does it have to be in terms of numbers only and no variables?

    8.
    (ii) Stretch parallel to the y axis scale factor \displaystyle \frac{1}{9} (2 marks)
    How many marks would I lose for putting stretch parallel to the x axis scale factor 1/9?

    Numbers are required.

    Hi Sir,
    If I used my answer for a from part ii in part iii but did the question with the correct method, how many marks would I get?

    Sorry guys I made a mess of 9(ii) at the start - I didn't notice k had to be positive. It's right now.

    You might still get 2 marks in the final part.

    It isn't a correct answer. There is a scale factor of 1/9 in 8ii.
    Okay thank you, I did get 1/9 as the scale factor. Also, for question 5bi), I wrote -6/a + 2/a +4. Does it matter which order the terms go?

    Hi, for q6 part iii I went wrong in the method somewhere and got the wrong answer, but I realised and still wrote N=38. How many marks would I get? Also for the equating coefficient question I used k as the coefficient and somehow got +/- root 1/9. Would I get any marks?
