    Not wanting to sound superior, but I actually though that was quite easy.

    In terms of leaving your answers as pie we all just left it as

    20000-5000pi

    or in my case

    5000(4-pi)

    which is best as I could do unless if you went pedantic and put every term as a product of pi:

    pi(20000/pi) + 5000pi.

    I'm so annoyed I failed to spot 423 / 990 is 27/110 (think those were the numbers... not sure).

    Did anybody else find that okay/easy?

    That was eas................ily one of the hardest papers I've ever done.

    For Jack I said he got 17 right with the following (crap) formula:

    4x - (30-x) +25. Dunno how wrong it was.

    I failed to actually put an answer for the cylinder question.

    P.S. Any idea of grade boundaries?

    Seriously everybody found it hard :eek:?

    It was easy (or as much as a higher tier paper can be expected to be). Seriously, I answered all the questions eventually, and cant think of any that I felt I had done wrong. It was all at least reasonable - vectors, graphs factorising, cylinders, probablilty - the lot!

    I did get 0.75t+0.25s whoever asked (for the vectors).

    err.. what WAS that? People we CRYING behind me (which totally didn't help). Maybe Jack should just work out his own marks... or check is paper? And WHY so many graphs? Ah well.. bye bye A*....

    I thought it was ok but there were a few tricky questions and i jus realsied ive made a few mistakes, damn.

    I hated the one where you had to find p and q. I completely left it out and to find the point A i just guessed and put -5,0.

    The vectors one was good. And the probability at the end, the last question, did you all get 0.7?

    The cylinder, part 1 was good, but the second part i made a mistake, and thought i couldnt subtract it cos the volume of the box was smaller than the volume of the 20 cylinders, argh. Silly mistakes. Aqa are making the exams so much harder this year tho.

    I got the same for vectors. Glad to see somebody else found it easy.

    Phew I feel better now.

    The Jack one, it took me ages to think of that. The first part was 30-x. Second part was ..I cant remember but I got 17 for the 3rd part so it worked out.

    How did everyone did the question on square with diagnals of 8cm. we had to find the area. i got 64cm^2. i spent about 15 minutes on this one.

    i used pythagarous to work it out......hypatanous was 8cm so using

    pythagarous theorem a^2+b^2=(8)^2

    as it was square so a and be must be the same lenght e.g 32+32=64



    this question was also on intermediate paper and one of my mate didn't read teh question properly and assumed that the given legth of 8cm was each side. He just did 8x8=64 Wowwwwwwwww toook him 1 seconds........

    Grr it was hard! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Hopefully just scraped an A. My coursework was really good so hopefully that will help me get an A... Got the cylinder question right, so am happy about that. But, yeah it was hard! I hope the calc paper is a bit nicer!
