    The height is 9 tho cos u add 17/2 and 1/2 together
    How many marks would I lose for losing the wrong height but everything else is right (I put 8 instead of 9) Would I lose more than 1 mark or would they take my mistake into account???

    You should do unless the question was a "show that" in which they would expect you to the the one they give.
    Thanks, it's just because my teacher would rarely do that but looking in marking schemes it seems you can get those marks!

    Ignore the d***head. Clearly insecure about something
    Lord knows why he says this stuff. Last time he said something about me not getting offers from 'good enough' unis cuz I know too much about IB and don't revise. Guy needs to take life less seriously.

    For question four, I did
    First I found out with the x and t values given that the constant C = ln|60|
    Then I did,
    ln|x| = -2.5t +ln|60|
    ln|x/60| = -2.5t
    x/60 = e^(-2.5t)
    x = 60e^(2.5t)

    My answer for the hours passed for the mass to decay to 20 was the same as you I think.
    Yeah that's the same though just written differently, except the typo at the end, it's 60e^(-2.5t).

    Q8, wasn't it costheta= -4/5?
    No, cos(theta) = 4/5

    I effed the implicit differentiation and forgot the dy/dx on the cos(pi x y) term. Any idea how many marks I'd lose in the question as a whole?

    Can't remember if it wanted acute or not, but yours isn't acute. I have seen questions asking for acute although since we were finding cos of the angle not the angle perhaps it doesn't matter, if they are being specific it will be acute value and you will be wrong I'm afraid, but I don't remember either way so maybe both are ok

    bloody hell i made stupid mistakes, i messed up differential equation and didnt use ln when i took x to the other side @@ got like 900000 minutes or something lool. also I got volume as (1024/5)(pi) but i know u had to take away the little irrelevant section and i didnt so oops
    Did the exact same as you for the differential !

    Can someone please confirm whether or not there was a misprint on question 6, if so how will Edexcel mark this question?

    For Q7 working out the volume, i rearranged it to make x the subject and then i worked out the volume in terms of y although i think i got the answer wrong, would i get marks for this?
    Would i get any marks anyone?!?!?!
