Thanks for the reply, so the method does not have to be the same as the mark scheme?
Not necessarily for a question like that, there may be different ways of achieving the same answer. These variations would normally be put down in the notes section under the question (examiners copy)

Dude, what's a C3 triangle? Is that on the spec?

That C3 proof triangle 45 degree, 45 degree + 90 right angle

with 1, 1 and sqroot (2) lengths

Just remember it as a square cut by it's diagonal

I checked the notes section and my method isn't there, I went some long winded route, so u think I will still get the marks? Thanks for the help

Mind showing me the question and your answer?

Another interesting way of doing Question 10 on the IAL C34 Specimen Paper ( https://07a69ccf283966549a9350d1a669...%20Edexcel.pdf )
Spoiler:

Find the Cartesian equation

Volume of solid revolution equation :

This bit is FP3 level:

This is how I did it lmao, I wasn't thinking straight. Been doing a lot of FP3 lately
I would have done pi times integral of sin^2 theta x sec ^2 theta, which is integral of tan^2 theta... I'm stuck now, where did I go wrong

Edit: oh wait that is sec^2 theta minus 1, so then it is pi [tan x - x] bounded by the theta value

Ignore my solution, its an alternative way and some methods used towards the end are beyond C4 level.

is the correct way of doing it.

So as you said.
8. (Original post by edothero)
First you deal with the

So you would have

Then if you're adding/subtracting anything

Then once you have your values you do it in the opposite order

so
Cheers mate. Is there a reason why it's done like that rather than the usual order when inside a bracket?

Don't quite get what you mean sorry, could you elaborate?

So sin(2x-60) for example is a transformation. So you would follow the rules of transformation inside the bracket. Why do you change the range of values the opposite way to that?

Wait, I think I got it. Is it because you need to get back to the original sin function in order to get the original values that you then need to change?

Oh right, when you apply it to the ranges and do you obtain values for . Question asks for values of x, so you rearrange

Take it like this, (sorry for double posting)

Where is some value in the range
Then you need to find the values of x.
Therefore you would do

Hence doing the opposite.
14. For those who dont know, Arsey's been banned from making model answers for edexcel, that means he wont be making them for c3 or c4, so brace yourselves for not being able to check your answers afterwards, unless someone else takes on the responsibility

Won't be able to be as quick though.
