    would I lose a mark if I didn't put dx after the integral in the double differential thing?

    I think I have made some mistakes on question 3 where I can't remember if I have used cosine rule at all... Can someone show me how to get the correct answer for question 3 please?

    I thought you took it from 6pi as the graph is stretched by a scale factor of 3 unless I'm wrong, but now I am unsure

    tan graph isnt symmetrical so can't take from 6pi. as they repeat every 180 degrees or pi radians with just normal tan(x) so you need to add on 3pi radians to the first value because its tan(1/3 x)

    Your marks add up to a today of 74, I am pretty sure the N=24 question was worth 4 marks

    I didn't use the tan graph, I squared both sides instead and used the cos graph

    I understand how to solve it using tan, I'm just trying to see where my second answer of 6.1 rad comes from... I'm kinda frustrated at how I've lost so many marks because I didn't notice that you could use tan

    Thanks everyone for the help though

    Yeah I got something along those lines, how did you get the 15.5 answer?

    i think (or what i did anyway) what you had to do was divide both sides by cos(1/3 x) and get 2=tan(1/3 x). not sure if it'd give the correct answers to square both sides but i may be wrong

    Used my fp1 knowledge for that question :P. I thought it was a paper that required you to be careful, but otherwise was quite straight forward. I know i've lost all my marks on the last question cus of radians smh
    Yeh should have done that :/. I tried to insert N as a which is why it all went to hell but yeh, because the steps were right, just with completely the wrong numbers and idea, I think I may scrape a couple of marks there which would make the difference. Rest of straightforward so long as you checked well. What did you do for the last question? Answered it all in terms of degrees?

    They intersect at 2 points, right? Although I might has taken it away from 2pi.

    Oh well, this exam didn't mean anything for me
