    the answers are 3 and 1/2 and actually I just tried 1/2 and I don't think that works as -7x1/2 +3 = -1/2 and you can't take logs of negative numbers...

    So maybe the textbook is wrong?
    Yeah the textbook is wrong, and the correct answers are:
    (−7±√73)/4

    Yep. 2=1.25^x

    log1.25(2)=x
    therefore x=3.11

    *uses a^b=c is the same as loga(c)=b

    Im confused on the mark scheme for part ii of the question.They used 1.25^0 but I only used from 1.25^1 to 1.25^4.Why am I wrong ?

    Because the limits are 0 and 4 because it is bound by the y-axis where x=0
    therefore 1.25^0 not 1.25^1 . Hope this helps

    Ok,part (iii),I said it was an underestimate because it looks like its under the curve,but the mark scheme says its an overestimate.Like wtf ?

    Sorry again,but Im stuck on q9 part i.
    I have twwo factors with an unkown remainder, and having the a there throws me off.

    F(2)= F(-2)
    therefore (imput this value for x)...
    4a+2b+2= 4a-2b-14
    4b=16
    b=4
    then work out a. Basically the a cancels but you need to be brave and work through the calc that looks too complicated to do. Sneaky exam board.

    8ii) 2^x - 3
    2^0 - 3
    1 - 3 = -2

    8iii) 0 = log2^x - 3
    3 = log2^x
    x = log(base2)3

    I think of it as 2 to the power of x = 3 and the power always goes to the right. The thing that is getting 'the power' is the base.

    iv) y = 2^p - 3 (p,62)
    62 = 2^p - 3
    65 = 2^p
    log65 = log2^p
    log65 = plog2
    p = log65/log2

    Trapezium rule is easy.

    Quick question, during the trapezium rule, is it the odd numbers multiplied by 2 ?

    No it's all except the first and last the formula is on the data sheet
