    For the partial fractions question, did A=1 and B=-1? Because I swear I messed something up round there..
    I got them values. i'm sure they are right...

    thats what i got, in fact, you had to get that to be able to do the second part of the question

    I got question 2 on the comp to be 96.1 km/h and 110kg or something, but I know thats wrong. I probably differentiated wrong or something. Reckon I'll get any follow through marks?

    Also, for the last comprehension q, I put C as the amount of CO2 generated of a mm or 10cm is minimal, which I also think is wrong.

    Answer was 10cm, as it goes up to 4dp, which is multiples of 10cm. (I wrote mm cos I made a mistake)

    100*1.641444(cant remember exact) = 164.1444 km
    = 16414.44 cm
    = 164144.4 mm therefore a = to nearest mm

    eek. looks like i got it wrongggg

    Was 100 km/h with 101.10 g or something

    oh crap, it asked for the kg part?!

    i got speed to be 100, because 0 = 3x^2 - 200x -10000 = (3x + 100)(x - 100)

    For the comprehension graph, were you supposed to just draw 5 horizontal lines for the correct boundaries, or a curve/line?

    I got 10cm for Q5 in the comprehension, I think I messed up 2 parts of the vector question so unless the markers are kind there goes my A* .

    1.641444 * 100 = 164.1444
    =164144.4 = metre
    16414440 = cm

    I did:
    y = \frac{1}{2}sin2\theta \implies 2y = sin2\theta and then use the cos^2\theta + sin^2\theta = 1 identity.

    For Q5 on the comprehension I put to the nearest 10cm because that's as accurate as the number of significant figures can provide.

    What did everyone do with the vectors question, where you had to calculate the angle of the pipeline with the vertical? I basically found the dot-product of the pipeline's direction vector with the unit vector in the z-direction and used the formula cosθ = a.b/|a||b| to calculate the angle it made with this unit vector. Would that be a reasonable method?

    Ok so I thought it was an OK exam.

    There seems to be differing answers about the last question. Personally, I put C as, if you re-read the section on accuracy in text, it claimed that even 2 significant figures for the carbon dioxide would be accurate enough.

    I realise that the question specifyed a distance though; so I simply put that, since the sig figs were negligible for the carbon dioxide, in this case scenario (and especially if you had wanted to convert the distance into carbon d. mass emissions) the sig figs would also be negligible for miles.

    Either way, bit of an ambiguous question.

    i dunno! that stumped me lol. i think i put:

    say AB =
    300
    100
    100

    i used that and
    0
    0
    100

    That's what I did.

    What were you supposed to do for the last part of the vector question? I found the angle between the normal from the plane, and the AB direction vector, but then I left the answer as that angle. Were you supposed to do something else with that answer?
