    You needed to realise the area could have been negative by going under the x-axis, hence area is -270 as well as 270
    ye i got 27/2 which is wrong but -27/2 would've worked , thanks

    Can someone please explain why for 6b it wasn't 2.5. My thought process was 4p-10=0 so p=2.5? why is this wrong?

    Redcoats, I have done questions separately if you want to order the OP.

    I should be able to access the paper tomorrow, I've seen all the mark schemes so should be able to guess how the marks are structured once I've had a good luck.
    Ahh please when you have it will you put up a mark scheme with reference to the original questions! I don't see how people can possibly memorise all this!

    Area= 5a^2(q^2 - 1) / 8q D (-a, aq-a/q)

    Just to let you all know that I have merged another thread with an identical title with this one. The other thread had posts from about 2 hours ago, so you might want to re-check previous posts to see if there's any new information which you might find helpful.
