    How many marks would be dropped if you got -1/48 instead of 1/48? Would that be 2/4?
    i thought the answer was the minus one ?

    Yeah, in comparison, 2014 was more straightforward than this one as lot of of people tripped up. It's normally low 60s, high 50s.
    I agree. I saw the last question and knew some people would get that wrong and there wasn't a question quite as challenging in last year's paper. I'm optimistic really

    A few definite correct answers:
    1) first question was 4(√ 3)+4
    2) indices:
    i) 5^8
    ii) 5^(-1/4)
    iii) 5^(9/2)
    3) with two simultaneous equations, solutions were:
    x=14/3, y=-13/3, and
    x=2, y=1
    4) The quadratic with unknown 'a', a=13
    5) transformations:
    i) 1/(x-2)^.... (Can't remember the denominator power - it was the '-2' that's important)
    ii) the one with denominator '3x' was a stretch scale factor 1/3 parallel to the x-axis (in the x direction) OR parallel to the y axis (in the y axis) as both do the same transformation in this example.
    X DIRECTION AND Y DIRECTION BOTH RIGHT!
    6) with another quadratic curve question, with something like 2x^2-x-3=0;
    The curve intercepted the x axis at -1 and 3/2, and the y axis at -3.
    When it asked for the values of k, k<-25/8
    7) with the curve y=x^(-1/3) and at the point x=-8, the gradient was -1/48
    8) the circle question: centre (5,-2), radius 5.
    The then triangle PQR later in that question had area 40.
    Sorry if they aren't in their test order, and good luck everyone doing C2 tomorrow!

    yeah haha. I managed to trip up on that one too. Maths are quite lenient with ecf right up until the A1 mark for the final answer so i'm sure it'll be fine

    Agreed. It's -1/48

    yeah i thought so ahah, i put minus and i cant afford to lose any more marks after crossing out the 40 in the last q

    I got 25 for last one so annoyed. And had the right answer for k then crossed it out

    Nope because the substitution was -8 therefore -⅓x-8^-4/3=1/48

    I put -1/48 though...

    debate: is this stretch parallel to x or y



    I think both

    As long as you didn't put a new answer, and the crossed out answer for k is legible, you'll get full marks for that.

    -1/48 is the answer man

    (8)^{4/3} and (-8)^{4/3} both equal 16

    I think both
    With this curve, a stretch of scale factor 1/3 is identical in both directions

    I have a feeling I forgot to work out the y value for the simultaneous equations too...

    this is just what i remember! could b wrong

    1. 4√3 + 4

    2. (i) SKETCH

    (ii) -1/(x-2)

    (iii) stretch parallel to x axis by scale factor 1/3

    3. (i) 5^8

    (ii) 5^-1/4

    (iii)5^9/2

    4. x= 27, x= -8

    5. (i) AB length: 5

    (ii) 3x - 4y - 29/2 = 0

    6. x = 14/3 when y = -13/3
    and x = 2 when y = 1

    7. (i) -3x^2 -10x-3

    (ii) -1/48

    8. (i)SKETCH

    i kinda forget the order of the questions here lol....
    so i think:

    (ii) x<-1 and x>3/2

    (iii) k<-25/8

    9. (i) A = 13

    (ii) other stationary point: 1/3

    i think there was more to question 9......?

    10 (i) centre (5,-2)

    (ii) show that

    (iii) 40

    correct me if I'm wrong lol!

    sorry, was the stretch question to get -1/3x or -3/x? thanks

    The question was differentiate y=x-1/3 and find the gradient when x=-8
    So, dy/dx = (-1/3)x-4/3
    Sub in -8 for x gives (-1/3) * 1/16
    Which is -1/48
