    Check your s.
    true, but as its a distance (not a displacement in this case) it can only have magnitude - but I agree, strictly it should be negative

    No, it's displacement. You will get the wrong answer if you do not use a negative.

    I agree, (and said it should be negative), but you are unlikely to be penalised for turning it into a positive (you will simply get a negative height)

    [In this question, i and j are horizontal unit vectors due east and due north respectively and
    position vectors are given with respect to a fixed origin.]
    HOW DO I DO PART D????????
    A ship S is moving along a straight line with constant velocity. At time t hours the position
    vector of S is s km. When t = 0, s = 9i – 6j. When t = 4, s = 21i + 10j. Find
    (a) the speed of S,

    (b) the direction in which S is moving, giving your answer as a bearing.

    (c) Show that s = (3t + 9) i + (4t – 6) j.

    A lighthouse L is located at the point with position vector (18i + 6j) km. When t = T, the ship
    S is 10 km from L.
    (d) Find the possible values of T.

    Is there a difference between IAL and normal A Level M1 syllabi? Or is IAL just generally harder?

    IAL are good. But hope you have done the last paper of solomon and the gold papers for edexcel.

    IAL is the international syllabus. Whereas the general A levels are done within the UK.
    I don't think there is any difference between the content of the specification. IAL is usually a little more tricky than the normal paper
