Yeah i thought it was fine, what was the problem witht the last question, i found it fine, but that's maybe because i did harder in the add maths exam.

i was told it was far easier than the non-calcuator, i thought so. My additional maths teacher gave me a copy of this exam just 2 look at it. What answer did u all get for the volume of the remaining solid from the cone??????

Can't remember what i got, but the way i did it was right i think. Used similar triangles to get the height of the part taken away, then took the volume of the part removed away from the total volume at the start. What answer did u get?

I thought it was easy. Just like the past papers.

I got the two at the end as well, don't think I got them right though, but I think I'll get marks for correct working out.

Look i know i didnt get some of mine right last year in my maths gcse and i ended up getting a high a*. I really though i done crap. Now i predicted an a* for additional maths. Even if u try the question and use a method that could get the answer but dont get it right, u r able to get almost full marks in that question. U will all be alright.

the way i got it was:

the probability of a red glove = 6/16
probability of the other hand red = 3/15

damn just realised i did it wrong.

was along the right lines but i forgot to take away the one so had 3/16 instead of 3/15 up there.

nearly got it. anyway im not gonna do any more cus ill realise how much ive got wrong!!

Damn, same mistake here.

You'll still get a few marks for working out though.

I found mine OK! A little easier than the non calculator, I think. I'm pretty sure I've managed to get the C I need for Sixth Form. I'm sure I didn't get full marks or anything, but apparently I need 50% in each paper for a C, which I think I've managed to get. I'm so relieved they didn't go badly!
