    My reaction to the sad news that i did it wrong:
    Haha, yeah I think I did it pretty differently to most people so don't take my working as the only way by any means but I think my answers match up with the ones others have discussed so it's one way of doing it.

    Yeah, as the other poster said you could also do it using polynomial division and then simplification of the fraction.

    For question 4a (the one with the modulus graph), for y = 0, I wrote x = 0.5ln(6.25), not noticing that 6.25 can be rooted to 2.5. How many marks was that? Will I get full marks for that one, or do those questions typically require a simplified answer?

    Also, how did people find that compared to the June 2015 and June 2013 paper? Those are the ones I didn't do for prep, so I can't judge
    Definitely easier than the 2015 paper

    I split into 2Cos2x/Sin2x and used to Cos^2x - Sin^2x for cos double angle, along with dividing and simplifying the Sin double angle. Have a try? It should work.

    Yeah you do use the equation 4e2x - 25 - 2x - 43. That would give you an a positve and negative answer. Around -0.08 and 0.08 i think it was.
