    for the matrices question how many marks do i lose if i only got 9/2 ???
    It'll probably be one mark as the question specified finding the "values" so finding one value probably reduces the mark by one. I can't remember how many marks it was out of now though so it could also be two. I doubt it'll be more than that though.

    For the divisible by 19 proof question I brought the 3^-2 down and multiplied f(k) by 27 then minused it from f(k+1) to eliminate the 3^k.I was able to prove it was divisible by 19 so would I still get full marks even if it's not the main method
    I hope so as I went about it the same way

    Does anyone remember the actual question for the divisibility proof by induction? I think it was 3 to the power something plus 2 to the power something, and it had to be divisible by 19.

    Hopefully this helps.

    Am i the only one who forgot the sum for 2 to the power of r-1 from c2 so manually wrote out all 12 terms :clap2:such mathematical elegance
    apparently you wont get marks for this?

    I'm guessing it'll be one or two marks. The working out will be worth three probably. Hopefully it's just one.

    My Answer for FP1 2017,
    1. ST 6.45
    2. (3/10, 1/10
    -2/5, 1/5)
    (2,1
    1,-4)
    3. y=x/2 xy=16 (4sqrt(2), 2sqrt(2)) and (-4sqrt(2),-2sqrt(2))
    4. (2p+12)/13 + (3p-8)i/13 p=20 lambda=+-4sqrt(5)
    5. (12-5p, 4p-10
    6p-15, 12-5p)
    p=3/2 k=15/2 a=9/2 or -27/2
    6. -3-2i a=2 b=-11
    7. ST (-a, -3a/2) s=15a^2/16
    8. ST k=2/9
    9. ST ST

    Hi do u know if I missed the answer a=-27/2 how many marks will I lose? Many thx

    That may be true, but should I tell you another truth?

    You failed that exam didn't you?
    Nope my answers align with the markscheme except for one 3 marker which I would loose 2 marks on

    Did u have to use a formula to work out the sum of 2^r-1 or is it fine if I just wrote the answer

    You mean the sum formula?

    Did you go through the tedious workings of (1 + 2 + 4 + ...) ?

    If you did, you will get the marks

    For the Area FXD question:
    tangent has equation yq= x+ aq^2
    at directrix, x= -a so yq = -a + aq^2 so y = (-a + aq^2)/q
    F(a,0) X(-0.25a,0) D(-a, (-a + aq^2)/q)
    Area of FXD = 1/2 x base x height = 0.5 x (a+0.25a) x modulus of ((aq^2 - a)/q)

    Lets suppose the y coordinate of D is -5, length is 5, so times y coordinate of D by -1 to give magnitude.

    Area = 0.5 x (1.25a) x ((a - aq^2)/q) = 0.625 x q^-1 x (a^2 - (a^2 x q^2))
    I got it all in terms of q, as q is a parameter and everything in the question is algebra
    I did the exact same you mate haha. Except from I found q=1/2. But didn't think it was a constant variable. Let's hope we get plenty of method marks

    Well I just put it into a calculator. Only took about 30 secs. I didn't write that out though. I just wrote the answer of around 4000
