Zero isn't a natural number...lol
Sometimes it is (i.e. when you are using the Peano axioms) lol.

Actually depends on the context/branch of study..lol
Nope.

N_0 exists for a reason.

Zero is by no means a Natural number

N_0 != N
5. Oh well nevermind

There are many who will disagree
7. How did people do the series question, I couldn't get most of it to cancel.

Can anyone confirm that for q3 (roots of the complex number), the modulus was 2? so the answers were 2e^ipi...
16^1/4 = 2

So ya
10. Vote on how you found this paper!
If loads of people vote. We can get an idea of the boundaries.

12. fair enough

Method of diffs sorted out two of the parts of it. Then use fp1 formula for the sum of 1 to n, and 3n for all the 3s.

Samb, I know that the question wasn't exactly on spec and I'm definitely not the right person to be saying this, but don't you think some questions in a further maths paper should get you to think? It wasn't exactly STEP level to be fair.
I dont have a problem with the question as such, but i dont really know why people are pretending as if its an easy question thwt people who didnt get the answer are automatically bad

Easiest paper I've done for fp2. Full UMS in the bag. Hmu if you wanna know any solutions
16. For q2: I got 1/2 + n/2(n+1) - 3n - 1/(n+2) I think. Was this is? I think I got -7 and -13. Might have added them wrong.

Also for the de moir expansion I mixed up the minus signs so I got all positive constants. They were the right values but because of this I got part b wrong.

How many marks would this cost me?

You say that as if I shouldn't have completely forgotten everything I learned for fp1 😂
18. So no one else thought that paper was a complete f***ery?! Smh

19. Whoever made this needs a medal xD

Really, how was I supposed to know that. That question made me so mad!
