(ii) The line crosses the -axis at P and the -axis at Q. Find the coordinates of the mid-point of PQ. [4]

4.
(i)
Express in the form . [4]
(ii) State the coordinates of the vertex of the curve . [2]

5.
(i)

(iii) The curve is stretched by a scale factor of 5 parallel to the -axis. State the equation of the transformed curve. [2]

6. Find the equation of the normal to the curve at the point on the curve where . Give your answer in the form , where a, b and c are integers. [7]

7. Solve the equation , giving your answers in the form , where p, q and r[/I] are integers. [6]

8.
(i) Find the coordinates of the stationary point on the curve . [5]
(ii) Determine whether this stationary point is a maximum or a minimum. [2]
(iii) For what values of does increase as increases? [1]

9.
(i) A rectangular tile has length cm and width cm. The area of the rectangle is less than 112cm2. By writing down and solving an inequality, determine the set of possible values of . [6]
(ii) A second rectangular tile of length cm and width cm has a rectangle of length cm and width cm removed from one corner as shown in the diagram.

Attachment 148537

(i) Find the coordinates of the centre C and the length of the diameter. [3]
(ii) Find the equation of the line which passes through C and the point P (7,2). [4]
(iii) Calculate the length of CP and hence determine whether P lies inside or outside the circle. [3]
(iv) Determine algebraically whether the line with equation meets the circle. [5]
2. Have you got the questions? I'll try and remember them here if it will help anyone.
Also, thanks very much for doing this!

Yes I have the questions. I don't have the time to type them all in though.
4. oooooo
5. Few questions

for question 6, i droped a sign and got 4x-6y+13..
How many marks would i lose?

for question 7 i got my values for x BUT totally forgot to sub it back in to get y..

how many would i lose there?

and finally, question 9

i did -7 < x < 4 and totally forgot about negative lengths.. how many would i lose there?

Sorry for all the questions

I also got -7<x<4 which would technically be right?

LOL I hope so? What has MR M got to say about it?

Drop one mark.
9. Hi Mr M, for 3(iii)

i put (40/3,-2) will i get any marks

i just divided it wrong.
10. How many marks do you think I would lose if I accidently put 2-6root7 for the other x value on qu7? 1 mark? Also if I got the perimeter wrong 9ii) and put 10y+3 instead of 10y+6 resulting in getting 1.7<x<5.1? 2 marks?

Q6 probably 4 or 5 marks

Q7 not really sure what you have done

Q9 already answered
12. Hi Mr M, if you had a guess what would you say will be the minimum for an A.

drop 1 mark
15. (Original post by Mr M)
Drop one mark.
HI for Q6 (normal one) I got the wrong gradient for the tangent but did the rest right I think, how many marks would I lose?thanks
16. Mr M, anychance of error carried forward for 4 ii)?

Hi Mr M, if you had a guess what would you say will be the minimum for an A.
Not good at guessing these but I thought it was very straightforward.
18. I will be able to answer questions but I am teaching all afternoon and after school so it won't be until after 5 p.m.

I'll try and answer loads of queries then.

Q7 not really sure what you have done

Q9 already answered
I'd lose 4/5 marks?! or did you men get lol?

and q7) basically i worked it all out and got my y value to be 3 +- root 7 .. i left it at that..

but i forgot to put it back into my equation and if i did then i would have got the right answer..

I think i'd lose 2 mark max?
20. 68/72 will be above 90 ums right?
