    MEI, not Edexcel. ^^

    Found it really hard.
    Was the integration between O and P or P and Q?
    O and P I think. I found it really hard as well.

    Did you get 2root3 /3 or something like that?

    I found that really hard.

    Also, was the integration in q8 between O and P or P and Q. I and half my class did O and P but some did P and Q?


    yeah it was definitely between O and P cos i remember the question. what did everyone get as co-ords of P? i got pi/6, dunno if thats correct

    the exam was pretty hard, question 9 was a bit annoying with drawing the graph of the inverse function. some parts were hard some were fairly easy
    yeah, my diagram was messy lol, hope the examiner is nice...

    I think so can't really remember but it sounds familiar, and it was between O and P I believe.

    Yeah! you equate the first line

    And you should end up with x^2= 1/3

    So x= 1/sqrt(1/3) or sqrt(3)/3 depending on what calculator you got


    Well done, soundsl ike you got it right!

    Perfect answer!

    And also, I keep thinking I made a carrying error on the temperature logs question


    What did you guys get for the constant k?

    I found it all pretty easy except the second half of question 6 (...hence prove gf(x) is even).

    Yeah that what I got and Q was either pi/4 or pi/3 I cant remember (I am not sure either how I have forgotten so much of the paper in such a small amount of time).

    i believe k was something like 0.139? you could of checked it back in the exponential equation and it would of given u the correct answer

    what did ppl get for Q5 for the graph tranformations.

    i got 1 + sin2x ( a= 1 , b=1 c =2 )

    and -sinx +1 ( a=1 , b - -1 , c= 1)

    What proof did you give for the composite function question?

    I said something along the lines of if one function is even, it is divisible by 2, and any other function applied to it will also be divisible by 2....?
    No you had to say that -gf(x)=fg(-x)
    Was a fairly hard paper to be honest

    can anyone tell me how they answered the f(x) g(x) question where you had to prove gf(x) was even?
    thankyou

    p.s don't worry about it too much marks2, i mean it wasn't like u were the only one who found it hard. there were loads of people who didnt like it

    I think I put 3sin2x for 5i and 1 - sinx for 5ii

    I thought the paper in general was pretty hard though, got 95-100% in all of the C3 past papers Jun05-Jun09 but pretty sure I messed up this paper .
