    thx gaz...i got all the same answers that u did...but i think for 4(c) i left it as + or minus 2...will probably lose a mark there...otherwise this was a good paper...

    Dang, yeah, for those that got the π.2ln 3, its the same as π.ln 9 (3²)


    Edit: also, the transformations - the f(x + 1) moved it 1 to the left, what did the f(|x|) do to it, as it was already a modulus function!
    The f(|x|) made everything in the -ve X region reflect in the y-axis. So i got something like this:

    Yeah I generally thought it was a good paper, much better than the other ones I sat before but could it be that this time i actually revised??? But i cudnt blieve I didnt get that 2nd Log question or the 1st part of the trig question so GUTTED!! I got the rest of the trig. However I didnt get the 2nd bit to the binomial and still dont get it.

    Steve I am pretty sure the graph for f(|x|) was like the one below (see attachment)...i.e. a W shape...

    For the modulus didn't the graph actually make a W shape?

    im guessing around 88% for an A (don't think it will be lower...infact if anything it will be higher)...which is 66 out of 75 raw marks to get 80 out of 100 UMS marks

    66/75 for an A, do you not think that is a little high?

    This is maths we are talking about

    Remember all the single maths people are doing this paper as well It would be a little harsh on them if it was that high.

    come on sequence mate this wasnt a hard paper...ok maybe im pushing it a bit by saying 66...but 63-64 is probably going to be the lowest possible marker for an A isnt it?

    Yeh although the paper was easy, 88% just seems a little high for a grade A maths, not everybody doing maths has a passion for it you know

    I would have guessed more 61-62 for an A, as there were still quite a few q's that will have caught people(including myself) out

    63 it is then :P


    Also, if the grade needed for A is anything more than 60/75, surely that means your raw mark actually gets dropped by a couple of marks?

    Q5(a)(2pi/3)(4+ln3)
    (b)2(pi)(ln3).
    Shudnt this be 2pi(2 2/3-ln3) = 4 2/3pi - 2pi ln 3.

    You got (2pi/3)(4+ln3) = 4 2/3pi - 2/3pi ln 3
