# core maths c12 10 jan 2017 watch

the question said that the 8 term is half the 7
that's mean that 8 term *2= 7 term or 7 term/2 = 8 term
no bro ... 8th term is half of 7th term .. meaning suppose 8th term =x
and 7th term =y.

so x / 2 = y.........

suppose y=10 = 7th term ... so 8th term will be 10/2 =5

you mean that the angle is 60 because equilateral triangle i think i got it right hopefully i wish to score a mark above 105
Yep all the angles were 60 degrees, you just had to apply the sector area formula, theta(r^2)/2 and proceed from there. That's not the only way tough, there were numerous ways of finding the area.
3. i didn't use the sector area formula, but the segment area formula which is 1/2timesr^2times(theta minus sin of theta)

Hardly anyone managed to do that correctly, the answer was something like r²(√3/2 - π/2).

Indeed, this paper was quite difficult. The lowest grade boundary for an A has been 89 and that was January 2014, the very first paper in ial math. I personally didn't find that paper too difficult when I solved it and this paper was quite similar in difficulty. I'd say the boundary for an A would be max 90 or min 87.
Lowest was 80 I dont remember the year maybe Jan or June 2014 while second lowest was 89

My a was 0.2 as when i expanded by the ncr method i got 20ax as the 2nd term and i equated it t0 4x so 20a=4 and a=4/20=0.2

I have no idea
I am waiting for the model answers
7. For January papers are their any model answers made in the past years?

Yes cuz when i gave m1 in jan last year the model answers were published

That's the preferred way, alas I didn't know the segment area formula and thereby had to find the area through the more time consuming way.

I can't recollect when the grade boundaries were 80 for an A.

some students were getting 4 ....lets hope our ans is correct and btw what were the coordinates of point of intersection for u ?
14. What was the shape of the curve
I think i am going to lose minimum of 14 marks
Hoping to have an A
I need an A in C12
15. What was the shape of the curve The one with and what was the value of c
I think i am going to lose minimum of 14 marks
16. For the graph which we had to draw the firct one i was getting an n shaped graph with points of intersection as (0,c^2), (c,0) and (-c,0)
And the its 2nd part i got a double root at 0 and another root at (3c,0)

Damn thanks for letting us know, I probably wouldn't have noticed it otherwise.

BTW, how did your other exams go?

I hate the panicky feeling you get in exams, especially towards the end when the time is running out.

Also, by looking at the model answers I think I'm gonna lose about 7 marks max, silly mistakes exclusive. What about you?
