    Mostly, need to do some last minute revision but as I said earlier, FP3 is one of my better modules

    For bii, try substituting r=4root2 into the expression given at the start of b, then solve for theta

    Here is the working for c, I spent a while looking at the best method to explain it. It is not an easy question, so I apologise if the solution is confusing, let me know if you have any questions

    Anyone know where I can find more difficult polar coordinate questions that are similar to the Aqa ones?

    Go on the C3 15th june thread and there is a link there for legacy papers and find the ones called something like map-5, there are some tough questions there if you skim through those papers

    I converted the co-ordinates of P, N and Q into Cartesian and used length of lines for PN, NQ and QP to find out the angle using cosine rule. Would I still get the marks?

    Yeah that's fine, it would still get you all the marks and would be included in the more detailed mark scheme that examiners get, but it would take longer of course.

    What did you get for the value of 6ii?

    The limits used for part bii are not the limits that are used to evaluate biii. The limits for part bii actually switch to calculate biii. They should be 0 (upper) and 1 (lower) instead of 1 (upper) and 0 (lower). This is because of the substitution; when you change the limits for the substitution using y=1/x, you calculate y=1/infinity = 0 for the upper and y=1/1 = 1 for the lower. If you calculate the integral again using the limits 0, 1 instead of 1, 0 the sign changes and becomes positive. You'd get 0 - -1/2 = 1/2 instead of -1/2 - 0 = -1/2 for the definite integral.
