    That exam was quite ridiculous compared to all the past papers. I thought that some of the maths was quite fun like (cosa+sina)^2= 1+root3/2
    But some was just ridiculously hard. Like I don't think I did very well on that polar coordinates question that converted it into Cartesian. For that question did anyone get the transformation as 4 in positive X axis ?

    Yes, that is the answer my whole group got.

    Ah okay thank you. I know in the form the question have it it made it look like the curve was an ellipse, when in fact the value I got for d was negative, making it a hyperbola. I think my value of d was -25/4. I'm pretty sure I was incorrect on this though as it seemed quite unlikely the Question would mislead you on that. What did you get for d ?

    One was 20 and one was 36. No negatives. Do you remember what the polar equation was?

    What you on about? The x^-7lnx?

    Let p= 1/a

    Lim(Ln(p)/p) as p approaches infinity

    So a approaches 0

    Replacing p with 1/a and using log laws you get one of the quoted limits in the spec

    It was lnx/x^7 with limits infinity and 1 I believe.

    Well I got something like 2.0779 and rounded to 2.078 or something like that for the Maclaurin I have no idea what I did wrong
    I got that as well :/

    Is the value of it just 0?

    Yes, then you had to use that limit because you got something in that form from the integration by parts. Final answer 1/36

    I think so.

    What did people get for the Euler and maclaurin, I got 2.081 and 2.080

    Do you remember how many marks was Maclaurin
