    (GCSE) AQA Level 2 Further Maths Paper 1 (Non-Calc) 8360/1 20/06POSTED THIS ON WRONG FORUM BEFORE, OOPS!

    1) Expand and differentiate 3x^2-20x
    2) Multiply out matrices to equal the matrix given and solve a=3 b=-20
    3) n=12
    b) 3/5

    4) (-5, 8)
    b)root'10'

    Graph question with turning point at y=0
    --> coordinates of minimum were (3,0)
    --> k = 9

    (3-root'x' ) ^1/3 = -2
    x = 121

    sinx = root'11'/6
    cosx = -5/6 because it was obtuse, and on a cosx graph, angles greater than 90 degrees are less than zero -> so it can't be positive (thanks yaystrawberries)

    A lot of 'prove that' questions... you'll know if you've got those.
    --> prove that triangle is isosceles (w=3n)
    --> prove that the line segments are perpendicular (prove that -1/m)

    Surds question √125 + √20 = √x + √80
    x = 45

    Factorise x^4-81
    -->(x^2+9)(x^2-9) [1 mark]
    -->(x^2+9)(x-3)(x+3) [1 mark]

    Circle theorems question (cyclic quadrilateral)
    --> x = 39

    7) Write out the integer values, lose one mark for writing it as a range rather than integer values: 9, 10, 11

    9) x^3-15x^2+75x-125

    10) -80
    11) Gradient AB = -5/2, Gradient BC= 2/5
    12) h=3 k=-7
    --> coordinates: (-3, -7)

    14) 3a=3 a=1
    b)(x+2)(x-7)(x-3)

    15) 2 root'7' -4

    I'm missing loads here, please comment and feel free to add or correct anything. How'd you think it went?

    I only have a small thing to add, but for the sinx question, I'm pretty sure cosx = -5/6 because it was obtuse, and on a cosx graph, angles greater than 90 degrees are less than zero - so it can't be positive

    answers i got
    1) 3x^2-20x (2)
    2) a=3 b=-20 (3)
    3)n=12 (2) b) 3/5 (1)
    4)(-5, 8) b)root 10
    5) x=39 degrees
    6)m=8 p= -1
    7) 9, 10, 11
    8) x=121
    9) x^3-15x^2+75x-125
    10) -80
    11) Gradient AB = -5/2, Gradient BC= 2/5 (3)
    12) h=3 k=-7 b) (-3, -7) (1) c) -3+ or - root 7 (1)
    13) x=45
    14) 3a=3 a=1 (2?) b)(x+2)(x-7)(x-3)
    15) 2root 7 -4
    16) I got 5/6 but answer was -5/6 because it was obtuse (3)
    17) k = 9 (5)
    18) (x^2+9)(x-3)(x+3)
    19)prove that the first part = 3, do it by doing sin45 = 1/root2, and 1/root2=x/3root2. Rearrange for 3. b)3 + 3 + 3 + 3root 3 is what you get for totals and factorise it to 3 (3+root 3) (4)
    20) w = 3n because y use cosine rule and the answer = 1/3 rearrange it and then factorise it into two solutions but answer cant be negative so its n=w/3 and w=3n so two lengthsare equal and u get isosceles (4)
