    What are the predictions for section B, I'm thinking Differential equations and Parametrics. What do you guys think?

    Yo guys Im feeling confident about this exam but have found one question that is bugging me. In 8iii) u have to get the equation into a certain form with minus signs and such. I can get to the step before this but cannot get it into the final form and the mark scheme dosnt even explain it which is nice. If anyone can explain would be very helpful http://www.mei.org.uk/files/papers/C4_PaperA_BJan13.pdf
    The minus sign is there because of ... magic.

    Lol , no, The integeral of 1/(20-h) is -ln(20-h) that is why.

    Hahahaha . lol. I should of been more specific . i meant the minus signs that are on the exponential function. such as e^-0.2t .

    To get from step 8 to step 9, the top and bottom by (e^-t/5)

    Thanks guys such much for that I have been tearing my eyeballs out about that for ages haha thanks . I tried doing that but I thought that -0.2t + 0.2t = 1 hmmm lol. Maybe I should revise addition next ......

    Divide each term by e^-3kt and youll get the answer. If you still dont get it let me know I will walk you through the steps but you did all the hard parts all you had to do at that stage is look at the answer given and think what can you do to your expression to get there. The "obvious" (and using obvious loosely since everyone can spot different things that they think are obvious) thing is to divide the numerator and denominator by e^-3kt.

    I know this is a last minute tip, but make use of the extra paper. Ask for extra paper and then write the expression in big hand writing and clearly on it, and then manipulate it carefully. This helped me a lot since you can see the terms clearly which makes it easier to do the algebra on them.

    Good Luck.

    other than the second half of the stacked triangles it was an okay paper.
    I feel that comprehension paper will have tripped many people though.
