# Edexcel Maths FP1 UNOFFICIAL Mark Scheme 19th May 2017 watch

1. (Original post by Apachai Hopachai)
You mean the sum formula?

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

If you did, you will get the marks
in the test I did

" K(2^0) + k(2^1) + K(2^2) +k(2^3) ....... k(2^11) '' without showing every single one only showed those is that fine?

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
You should get the marks.

" K(2^0) + k(2^1) + K(2^2) +k(2^3) ....... k(2^11) '' without showing every single one only showed those is that fine?
Sure, but it could have been simplified a great deal, if you had realised it was a geometric series, a = k, r = 2, n = 12.
4. was there a question on argand diagram?

I did that but for some reason kept kept doing 1 up to 11 not 12 so was getting wrong answer so had to resort to the well and trusted simple arithmetic
6. Some people take FP1 without having taken C2. So, Edexcel purposefully made n low (12) so that people who don't know the formula can have a good go at it aswell

I have a A*A*A university offer, should I hope that you guys got more than me or something?
Didn't need to call us noobs though did you? If it makes you feel better, yes I did find it difficult, and I've been crying all day since because I need an A in Further Maths AS. So I didn't really appreciate your remark but there you go, you enjoy your little perfection okay? (Also if your offer is A*A*A, like it really matters if you get 100?)

I'm sorry to hear this, I do talk recklessly sometimes, I apologise.

You still have two modules left, no need for tears, cheer up and get studying.

Cambridge A*A*A 1,1

Warwick A*A*A 1

Imperial blah blah
So you have offers for more than two universities? What happened for a firm and insurance choice?
11. Even if your proof isn't on the mark scheme,will you get full credit? I multiplied f(k) by 27 instead but still proved it
12. (Original post by Apachai Hopachai)
no
What course are you planning to study and how come youre doing c1 this year?

Thank you, the apology means a lot
Exactly, I'm working so hard to ace the others now!

Mathematics. I started Year 12 in September 2015 and decided that I'd take all my qualifications at the end of Year 13. I actually took C1 in Year 11, but got 94. So, retook in Year 13.
15. Is there anyone know if I missed the answer a=-27/2 how many marks will I lose? Many thx

What modules do you study
17. anyone else leave the coordinates of D and area of the triangle in terms of a and q, if so how many marks lost?
18. (Original post by 04MR17)
Question 6: Complex Numbers
a.) -3-2i [1]
b.) a=2, b=-11 [5]

Question 7: Coordinate systems
a.) Show that
b.) D: (-a , -3/2 a)
c.) (15a2)/16
How many marks was part 2 and 3 for question 7. I forgot to work out p so found everything out in terms of a and p, how many marks will I loose? Thanks
What modules do you study
Maths is about understanding. My math skills matured a lot since Year 12

C1,C2,C3,C4,M1,S1,FP1,FP2,FP3,S2 ,D1,M2.
20. 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?
