I'll be around a bit this afternoon and then part of this evening to answer questions. Please post in this thread rather than sending me private messages.
2. Roughly what do you think the grade boundaries will be for an A?
3. For the area under curve question would I get some marks for workings as i worked out equation of tangent and area of small triangle but got complete wrong answer?
thanks

Definitely.
5. For the area under the curve how many would I drop for, writing down it was the integral- the area of the triangle. I messed up calculating the x coordinate so in the end just guessed it as 2, in a last ditch effort :P

also for question 8 didn't b have to be a negative number?
6. What was the working for 5ii) the question on finding the perimeter? Thanks.
7. Thanks Mr M! Looks like I made two stupid mistakes :/

Q3) I put 64+960x +3000x ^2
Q 4) ii a =1/2 (didn't notice the ^- so didn't flip)

How many marks lost?
8. For question 9)ii) I inspected the cubic correctly to get a linear and a quadratic factor but somehow managed to get the + and - signs the wrong way round when I factorised by quadratic, getting (2x+3)(x-1). How many marks do you think this will cost me? Also, I then carried this error forwards into 9)iii) but used the correct method and got 2 of the 3 answers. Is there an allowance for error carried forwards or will I lose more marks here?
9. Do you think that grade boundary for A might be 54 points as well?

You had to work out the missing side using the cosine rule:
A^2=7^2+16^2-(2x7x16xcos0.8)
A=12.2
then you worked out arc length which is r x theta = 16x0.8 = 12.8
then you worked out the last side which was just 16-7=9
therefore, perimeter = 12.8+12.2+9 = 34

hope this helps
12. Hey does anyone remember the questions for 5i), 5ii), 6i) 6ii) and 9i) please
13. I got the value for C as 24 and dont understand how it is -11 can you explain the answer in more detail please?

1 for q3 and probably 2 for 4ii

5i) was the area of that portion of the sector with angle 0.8 radians, radius 16 and side length 7, you had to find the area of the whole sector and subtract the area of the triangle
16. Thanks- If I worked out the missing side and arc length correctly but made a silly mistake for the length of the last side how many marks would i get. Thanks

Oh thats right thanks do you know the questions for 6, 7 and 9?
18. How many marks will I get for the area under the curve if I got the equation of the tangent wrong

I'd imagine you would get 2/4 marks.

Maybe 1 or 2, depends if you did any part of it right or not because you only had to work out the area under tangent and were given the area under the other graph.
