i thought it was quit ea kind paper, in comparison with p3 i screwed that so bad!
I thought that p3 was *kinda* okay....but by the time I was given p6, I just couldn't be bothered..... very bad attitude to hav, but hey.
I answered most of it, but did sum stupid stuff... but other bits no matter how much time I was given i wouldnt have been able to do it.
But normally the boundary for an a is really low, like 38/60 or summit..... oh hum.....now is time for sleep.
WHat did you get for the distance between the two lines? My answer was a very ugly surd. 4 digits I think. So I suspect wrong. But I thought it might be right because when I used it in part (ii) to find the coordinate of Q I got really nice integers.
i got like sqrt65 ..... yeah i *think* that ii gave an alright answer...
could you do that question that had tan in it, then they did stuff n then they said to prove that when t=tanpi/9 it =0...i cud do that bit, but i didnt kno how to find the other values.....
me couldn't be bothered - hopefully got a few method marks on that q'n and went and checked rest of ppr instead!
The group theory was very nice on this paper I'll give that.
[victim/self pity/blaming others for own stupidity]
This is so annoying. I feel robbed. It's as if the paper was engineered to benefit those with good exam technique and nothing more. I was perfectly capable of answering any of those questions but because of silly messing about with my mind being on other things I completely cocked up on just about all of them. P6 has gone from being from my best module to probably my worst. I suck and it's everybody else's fault but mine. [/pity]
what do you reckon the p6 grade boundaries will be, did you find it really easy, really hard, coz i'm trying to figure out roughly wot i mite get
oh okay... same as me.
In the table, one was a one was ar^2 ( or the other way round) and another was like r^2 or r......not sure
> ( i think thats z,y,x repsectively)
yeh i got something like that.
the table was odd, 1st operation on the vertical column!
First operation is like if A down the left and B along the top you get A * B. Can't think off the top of my head what makes you say it was like that jonas, you may be right. Jonas says in this case you'd get B * A.
I thought it was all right, some unexpected questions though. I got the (2^n)(e^i*pi*theta) one though (or whatever it was). Just couldn't get the really dodgy roots one, I think the answers were given by tan 3 theta = sqrt(3) or something. I agree with sqrt(65) too. I couldn't get that simplifying ra one, I made it ar but i think I used dodgy logic.
if you looked at the table then you'd notice that...
so you take the term on the vertical first the blob it with the term on the horizontal
