    What did everyone get for the depth of the bowl question and how? As well as the vectors question evaluating charlie's methods? Thank you

    the question evaluating charlie's methods was that he was wrong because he put W as 1/2 when it should have been 1/3, you just had to state this.

    Or you could use differentiation which was (for me anyway) a lot quicker

    how would you differentiate it?

    btw the curve of the cross section has the equation y = (x^2/10)-3x and you need to find the depth of the bowl

    also how many marks did you get?
    y=(1/10)x^2-3x
    dy/dx=(2/10)x-3

    At minimum point, dy/dx=0
    0=(2/10)x-3
    2x=30
    x=15

    Sub x=15 into equation:
    y=-22.5
    Therefore depth of bowl=22.5

    I got all 4 available marks on that question

    Thank you. Are there any other difficult questions that you remember the answer to (I can't remember them specifically)
