    Here is the official 'Edexcel' markscheme.

    All of those who were insisting that on q9. the final range was greater than or equal to 3 and not as I had just greater than 3.... should check it out.

    (sorry in advance for being petty but I remember it getting a little tiresome explaining exactly why it was just >3 and some still insisted it was >=3)
    where'd you explain it ?

    I'm retaking C3 and I went through my paper I got ordered back. I lost the very last mark, using this mark scheme;

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/28007674/E...Marking-Scheme

    Question 9 ii b)

    Find fg and state its range

    f(x) = e^2x + 3, xER
    g(x) = ln(x-1), xER, x > 1

    I got the answer which is (x-1)^2 +3 but the range I stated was wrong.

    I said the range was fg(x) >= 3 (greater than or equal), which I thought was right since (x-1)^2 is always greater than or equal to zero? So why does the mark scheme state that it is ONLY greater than 3, not equal to? Can anyone help? Thanks.




    If anyone was wondering, I completely balls up the x = tany question like a few people did on this topic, because I misinterpreted what they asked. But this range/domain stuff I can't seem to get my head around most of the time.

    I think because in the Q it is greater than 1 then it X-1 cannot equal zero so it has to be great than and not greater than or equal to...

    That amde no sense when i tried explaining it but i bolded it as well....

    I explained in detail why it was >3 and not >=3 earlier in the thread.

    The quick answer is domains in the individual functions can affect the range of a composite function.

    If as in this case f and/or g do have a restricted domain it almost certainly isn't going to be as easy as sketching the graph of the composite function... you of course can but then you will need to work backwards to calculate what the domain of the overall composite function would be.

    C3 is a piece of piss now I've done C4. C4 is only really tricky with those context diff questions and possibly the odd tricky integral

    I'm sure they've given you/ asked you to find the vale of cos (2x+x) or sin(2x+x) ... ??
