    If you use the matrix transformation on the formula book (with cos theta and -sin theta etc) and solve the equations for this, remembering the theta values must be between 0 and 360 degrees because it's a rotation then this should help let me know if you need a better explanation!

    Draw it and remember  tan\theta =\frac{opposite}{adjacent} and just consider what quadrant it is in.

    Yeah I used the matrix rotation formula, and equated the top left elements to get

    \cos \theta = - \frac{\sqrt {3}}{2}

    but then using cos inverse gives me pheta = 150

    which would mean an anticlockwise rotation through 150 about O but thats wrong??

    Yeah so you find that and using cos (2pi-theta) is the only other valid solution in the range this means theta can also equal 210. Then use the transformation matrix again to find the inverse of sin( -0.5) which gives you -30 degrees which is out of range, so we do 180- this value of theta to get a value in range which also gives 210 degrees so since both equations now equate to theta equals 210 and this is in range this is the answer

    As I posted in last year's Edexcel FP1 thread, I have written an Enhanced Examination Paper for both Edexcel and MEI FP1.

    It is meant to be a significantly more challenging examination of general concepts specified by different boards. It is fully doable for students with knowledge of standard FP1, C1, and C2 material.

    If you can make a good start on all of the questions then you should be on track to a strong A in this module.

    Good luck!

    Please could anyone show their working for question 8b of these? Not sure I understand it! Thanks

    I dont get it. So I get theta equals 150. How do you know not accept that answer?
    Why do you go looking other solutions?

    Because the inverse of sin(-0.5) doesn't equal 150 when you put it in your calculator and the values need to match

    Oh I see. Another similar question I did, when comparing all 4 of the elements they all gave me the same angle so I didnt have to look for other solutions.

    But for this question since the cos and the sine dont give the same value, I have to find a the value (in range) which matches both ?

    But it accepts the 150 degrees answer.

    Which is basically the same thing but in the other direction.
    I find it much easier to just draw it and find the angle that it makes with the x-axis and then find the total rotation.

    Hi, this is a good one, I think what you need to do when proving something is divisible by a large number (>10 or so) is when you are at the "consider when n=k+1" bit, you substitute away the 7^2k using what you just did for n=k.

    Do you see what I mean?
