GO97: I assume you meant "2 to the power of an integer cannot make 12".
I agree.
I am saying that in your solution, you can't just say "odd*odd is always divisible by three and therefore the expression is divisible by three" because odd*odd is NOT ALWAYS divisible by three.
You need to do what I did in my previous post or what ComputerMaths97 did to show that for any pair of odd numbers similar to the pair 11 and 13 in the way that none of the 2 numbers is divisible by three, the number between them is never perfect square. There are a lot of such pairs besides 11 and 13:
19 and 21, 141 and 143, 23 and 25...

Hardest C3 paper so far, even my teachers couldn't do parts of Q9, so hopefully the boundaries for a B should be pretty low. U
Still pretty frustrated though, way beyond the C3 syllabus. Lets hope C4 will be easier to compensate.

How did everyone get 19/12 for the area? I got between 30 and 40, I found the area beneath the curve then subtracted the triangle from it, I feel like that was completely wrong and I misinterpreted the graph wrong hahahha

(2016 i think)
full ums = 70/72
90 ums = 64/72
80 ums = 59/72
70 ums = 54/72
(2015)
full ums = ? (i think it was 69/72)
90 ums = 62/72
80 ums = 56/72
70 ums = 51/72
(2014)
full ums = 71/72 (i think)
90 ums = 65/72
80 ums = 58/72
70 ums = 52/72

UNOFFICIAL MARK SCHEME:
1. Integrate 1 + cos(0.5x) between limits of 0 and pi/2. Answer is pi/2 + root2
2. Solve for x. Answer is x = ln2
3. Can't remember the context. Answer is 4ln4  4  alternatively may be written as 4(ln4 1) or ln256  4 or any equivalent form.
4. 2x+1 = x. First case, 2x+1 = x, gives 3x+1 = 0, 3x = 1, x = 1/3
Second case, (2x+1) = x, negate both sides to give 2x+1 = x, x+1 = 0, x = 1
Alternative approach, square both sides, 4x^{2} + 4x + 1 = x^{2}, 3x^{2} + 4x + 1 = 0, (x+1)(3x+1) = 0, x= 1, x = 1/3 as before
5i. V = 4root(h^{3}+1)  4. dV/dh using chain rule gives 4*1/2(h^{3}+1)^{1/2} * 3h^{2} = 6h^{2} * (h^{3}+1)^{1/2}. Substituting h=2 gives dV/dh = 8 (feel free to check this for yourself).
5ii. dh/dt = dh/dV * dV/dt = 1/8 * 0.4 = 0.4/8 = 0.05
6i. Can't remember the context. Answer is root3 /3
6ii.Transformation is first translate 1 unit to the right, THEN stretch parallel to yaxis, scale factor 1/2
7. x^{2n}1 = (x^{n}+1)(x^{n}1). Substituting for x=2, 2^{n} has to be even, so it's a product of two consecutive odd numbers, so one of those must be divisible by 3, so their product is divisible by 3. That's why I put anyway, I've seen someone say it's not right, so not completely sure about this one.
8i. Differentiate using quotient rule, then multiply your result by 2root(x+4), to obtain dy/dx in the form given.
8ii. Using equation for y, asymptote is x= 4, so x coordinate of P is 4. Use dy/dx for x=0, to show that tangent is y = 0.5x (yintercept c is 0). Then y = 0.5 * 4 = 2, so P is (4,2)
8iii.Area under the curve is found by integration to be 14/3. Area of triangle with vertices O,Q and (5,0) is 1/2 * 5 * 5/2 = 25/4
So area of required region is 25/4  14/3 = 19/12
9i. y = e^{2x} + ke^{2x}. When x=0, y = 1 + k*1 = 1+k
9ii. Answer is 2rootk
9iii. Answer simplifies to (0.5k  1/2)  (1/2  0.5k) = 0.5k  1/2  1/2 + 0.5k = k  1
9ivA. Replace x with (x+ 0.25lnk), to give g(x) = rootk(e^{2x} + e^{2x}).
9ivB. g(x) = g(x), so g(x) is an even function.
9ivC. f(x) is symmetrical about the line x = 0.25lnk. This can be deduced because g(x) is f(x) translated 0.25lnk units to the left. g(x) is even, so is symmetrical about the yaxis i.e. symmetrical about line x=0. f(x) is g(x) translated 0.25lnk units to the right, therefore its line of symmetry is x = 0.25lnk. Full reasoning will probably be required for all 3 of these marks.
These are the answers of my friend, who does Additional Further Maths, so I think they should all be right, or most of them anyway. Of course, feedback is more than welcome, if I've made a mistake please point it out.
I think boundaries will be 88 or 89 for 100 UMS (out of 90, for exam and coursework). 90% should be 80 or 81, and A should be 72 or 73. Difference between each grade will be about 7 or 8 marks.

I missed something in the proof (q7) when writing my unnoficial markscheme:
http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...3930177&page=8
7)x^2n1 = (x^n+1)(x^n1) (2^n+1)(2^n1) as n is greater than but not equal to 0, 2^n is even and is not a multiple of 3 as its prime factorisation is 2^n so the brackets are consecutive odd numbers. Therefore one is a multiple of 3 as we have 3 numbers and the middle one is not a multiple of 3 so either the one above or the one below must be. Therefore the product of the two brackets is divisible by 3.

5i. V = 4root(h^{3}+1)  4. dV/dh using chain rule gives 4*1/2(h^{3}+1)^{1/2} * 3h^{2} = 6h^{2} * (h^{3}+1)^{1/2}. Substituting h=2 gives dV/dh = 8 (feel free to check this for yourself).
5ii. dh/dt = dh/dV * dV/dt = 1/8 * 0.4 = 0.4/8 = 0.05
6i. Can't remember the context. Answer is root3 /3
6ii.Transformation is first translate 1 unit to the right, THEN stretch parallel to yaxis, scale factor 1/2

8iii.Area under the curve is found by integration to be 14/3. Area of triangle with vertices O,Q and (5,0) is 1/2 * 5 * 5/2 = 25/4
So area of required region is 25/4  14/3 = 19/12
9i. y = e^{2x} + ke^{2x}. When x=0, y = 1 + k*1 = 1+k
9ii. Answer is 2rootk
9iii. Answer simplifies to (0.5k  1/2)  (1/2  0.5k) = 0.5k  1/2  1/2 + 0.5k = k  1
9ivA. Replace x with (x+ 0.25lnk), to give g(x) = rootk(e^{2x} + e^{2x}).
9ivB. g(x) = g(x), so g(x) is an even function.
9ivC. f(x) is symmetrical about the line x = 0.25lnk. This can be deduced because g(x) is f(x) translated 0.25lnk units to the left. g(x) is even, so is symmetrical about the yaxis i.e. symmetrical about line x=0. f(x) is g(x) translated 0.25lnk units to the right, therefore its line of symmetry is x = 0.25lnk.

For 7 my argument was
will never have a multiple of 3 in it, as by definition it is made only of 2's multiplied together.
In any 3 consecutive integers there will be one which has to be divisible by 3.
:. As won't be that number it is necessary for either
or
to be divisible by 3...
It feels really clunky but it was the best I could do.Last edited by Aph; 21062016 at 12:49.

Two consecutive odd numbers are not always divisible by 3
i.e 11 and 13.
Therefore that way of "proof" is not sufficient.
