    It went great for me. The paper was pretty short, 10 questions only. The question on binomial expansion was a bit surprising.


    How about you ?

    I got n=6 for the binomial question.
    Do you remember what you got for the arithmetic sequence one ?
    Cause I got a quadratic in n for the sum. I got 20 and 61 when I solved it. I picked 20 as the answer.

    The x/a+y/b=1 question was also a bit new.

    n=20 ; If 61, then term value would be -100 (impossible)

    I'm going to have to retake hahaha, made way too many mistake here lool

    It went super well for me The binomial one was a bit tricky :/ So was the x/a + y/b = 1 one But otherwise good paper

    I think it was the first term

    What did you put your date as?
    For the question they asked to find n
    I put it as 20th but I'm not so sure about that anymore

    I believe i treated may 1st as the first term so I ,as well, put the 20th of may as my answer

    gahhh i always have doubts after a test because I can't remember my answers

    what did you put in the second part of the binomial expansion?? for the coefficient of x^2 ? I put 21/4

    1) for the first ans, ( equation of the curve ) c= -7 2)tan 2x = 3 , x=-54.2 , 35.8 for the other trigonometry , x= 7/12 pie , 11/12 pie 3) for the AP : i) 15th day = 130km ii) on 20th may for the gp i) r = 1/2 , a=16 ii) sum to infinity =30 4) for the binomial, n=6 , coefficient x^2 = 5.25 or 21/4
