(b) The curve may be mapped onto the curve of by a translation and a stretch.
(i) the translation [2 marks]

Translation in the vector (, 0)

Translation should be by vector (4/3, 0) as a positive integer as
y = 2^3(x- 4/3)
x - 4 /3 => x = 4/3

Do you think slightly different methods for 7 will still be fully credited? I did the binomial expansion while it was still in log form and found an equation equal to k-1, then factored out 3

I think that's fine, whether it is in log form or not

9. Given that , express in terms of . [7 marks]

For 6)b)I) I'm pretty sure the translation was with the vector (4/3,0) and for the last question it asked to fine k in the form (c+1)^2 therefore k=3(c+1)^(2) +1

I used log laws for the first bit and ended up crossing out correct working so 5 marks down drain ?
Also how much do you lose for putting gradient of Q as 1/4. I got x and y fine and used equation right just will it be one accuracy mark gone?
And for trapezium rule for some reason I have no idea I halved the rectangle coz I'm used to doing triangles hahahahha, will I lose 2 or 3 as I still got 8 but then subtracted 3.44 from 4.

I believe it asked to find (c+1)^2 in terms of k.
