    Can anyone do question 14 in the image I have attached? This is from the 2016 Paper 2 of Edexcel Mathematics B. I got the final answer wrong in the actual exam so could anyone tell me what I could get marks for, despite not getting the final answer? Any
    response would be much appreciated! Also, how many marks is the final answer worth? Is it 1?

    Been a while since I've done circle theorems here's what I think (could be be wrong), and the final answer is 1 mark I think assuming it's correct.

    Alright then... just kinda assumed that he had already given this question a go by sitting it in this year's actual exam, not like it matters at this point what he put down so he can have a look at a possible solution. But whatever.

    To answer OP:

    Yes I can answer this question and most of the marks are for the working out anyway, answer marks are usually 1 however could be 2 with explanation included.

    This makes no sense... if you want to know what you could get marks for despite not getting the final answer, you'd be helped the most by including your own working out so we can accurately estimate your marks. I would have thought that that would be common sense.
