    I got pretty much the same answers as all of you lot.
    One thing bothering me since the exam was that in the population questions

    me intercept was slightly smaller at = log1.8 ( so 63.1)
    and my gradient was = 0.0118 so 0.012 ish
    therefore my population of Africa at 2050 was slightly smaller at around 1024 Million.
    Your answers can really vary dependant on what your intercept and what your gradient was/

    Do you think i will still get the marks? because iknow in the mark schemes it usally gives you quite a big leeway with these log graph questions as peoples answers vary
    I think you must have done something wrong with the plotting or calculating. The intercept I got was 1.9 and made the a ~100 and the gradient was basically what you got. So theres no way you were that far off with a similar graph.

    Totally agree. Last year's sequences stuff I could NOT do in the exam (but when revising found it fine!)



    I'm pretty sure you're not allowed calculators in the exam that can do integration.
    I hate to burst your bubble but the FX991ES can differentiate and integrate for you and most graphic calculators have this ability too. however, you are not allowed a calculator which has a CAS (computer algebra system) which can do calculus symbollically (like you put in 2x^2 +3x^2 and it will differentiate it into 4x+6x and give you that as an answer. I highly recommend this calculator or, if you want a better one which will help A LOT in C3 the Casio FX9860G (slim or not) will do everything you want it to do.

    I got my gradient as 0.0115 which seems pretty damn close to yours haha. My intercept was 2.0 so it was ~100. Can the fella who said hes got the paper he can please get the ball rolling by uploading it?

    i got the same intercept aswell....but the answer that i got for iv i think definitely wrong...got something like 104

    what was your equation for part 3

    mine was P= 100 x 10^0.11....t. My gradient was definitely 0.11 something. Also, im pretty sure they will have a big range on this question as for example intercept of 2 and 1.9 or 1.8 will produce a big difference in final answer.

    what were your answers to the trapezium rule question and lower bound one. Also did you integrate that long decimal question with limits of 12 and 0?

    around 40-50 for most people

    ye but a lot of people seemed to have used 9 rectangles to work out the lower bound which is why their answer is in the 50s. Can you remember what you put for Q11 (iii)

    I got exactly the same gradient and intercept and equation.
    HIGH FIVE!

    3) \frac{\sqrt{14}}{7}
    4) 6.5cm
    5) i) Q(0,4) P (-0.5,2) R(2,2)
    ii) Q(0,4) P (-4,2) R (16,2)
    6) i) 205
    ii) 25/3
    7) i) 40.9 degrees
    ii) 10.4 cm
    8) 4y = 3x + 80
    9) i) sketch
    ii) x = 0.55
    10) i) dy/dx = 3x^2 -6x - 9
    so stationary at x = 3, x = -1
    min at x = 3, max at x = -1
    ii) x = 0, x = \frac{3 \pm 3\sqrt{5}}{2}
    iii) min at (3,-27) max at (-1,5) intersect axes at points found earlier
    11) i ) 47.625
    ii) 43.05
    iii) 47.664
    iv) y(7.5) = 5.300625 so fairly close.
