# I think the question is misprinted on the FP2 PAPER?

Q5 appears to calculate the region R as if it were bounded by the two curves. I think the mark scheme is wrong. I have attached my working below. If i am wrong could someone please point it out?

Thanks

It can't be the semi circle- area of the triangle because the little segments bordering the triangle are still included?

you can do it without integration...

I can see that you've got the same answer as the mark scheme and I can see what you've done. But I still don't understand why my working was wrong ?

you have worked out the white part of the top circle... you need to subtract from the whole of the top circle to leave you with the shaded bits.

I have done that? Ive worked out the area of the top circle to be 16pi and subtracted my integrated answer

Surely its only 4pi as the radius is 2

I thought if I substitute pi/2 into r=4sinx it would give me the radius but as I write this I realise I have calculated the diameter 🙄😂 and that explains why my attempt was probably wrong

This doesn't look right surely b should be 3? Have they factorised it wrong ?

Do you have the mark scheme for the corresponding FP2 Set C paper?

That has not been made yet I'm afraid
