What did you all put for the (8 part iii)transformation matrix ( back to triangle ABC) and the area of a"b"c"( 8 part4)?
I think I got the area of A''B''C'' to be 192 units ^2 (4 x 48 which was the area s.f)
4. 192 square units
5. (Original post by simon1207)
192 square units
This is what I got. Determinant was 48. the area of ABC was 4 so 4 *48 = 192 square units
6. Did everyone get -7 and 123

For the question where you needed find q and r

8. Well. That paper was beautiful.
9. Yeah. The poll answers are messed up. Perhaps a mod could rectify them...

11. Has anyone got the paper?
12. Is there a mod that can sort out the poll?

It took me ages to get it :/ I used the calculator to solve one of the cubics though so definitely won't get all the marks 😂 how'd you find the rest?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Part 3 was 3 marks
Part 4 was 2 marks

Can't remember how many for the others.

A friend and I made an unofficial mark scheme afterwards though,
Note: Q1 should have X and Y the other way around, and Q4 is the one on the right except without the part beneath having been shaded.

From your mark scheme I reckon I lost around 5 marks... All on question 8 😞
