    i thought there were some tricky questions, the final part of the implicit differentiation question seemed quite difficult but i think i got the answer in the end.. does any1 remember what they got for the value of the parameter on the parametric equation, i think i got t=4...

    tangents parallel to y axis have gradient infinity, so the bottom part of the fraction of dy/dx must equal 0
    2xy - 3 = 0
    y= 3/(2x)

    sub this into the original equation to obtain a quadratic and then show that it has no real roots. took me 20 mins in the exam to work this out

    That exam was SO darn easy. I actually couldn't believe it. It's messed up my brain totally because I thought that it was going to be so hard! I got t=4 aswell! Did anyone get time=10.8 mins for the very last question?

    Hi, I thought c4 was a pretty good exam, completely surprised me, because I was sure it would be really hard. I also got t=4 and 10.8 for the last part of the last qu.
