    Yeah but the values of the 20th term nd the 8th term were both negative numbers so you don't need to write -30 as a difference, just 30 is correct
    would -30 still get the mark though?

    Because number of columns of B does not equal rows of A

    ^ For this question I put there are fewer columns in B than A. Mark or no mark?
    Its because you cant multiply a 2*1 matrix by 2*2 matrix

    I'd say more like 140 to be honest. Those papers were some of the hardest I've seen for this spec

    It wanted a b c d in integer form so you had to simplify further.
    Do you know what question 9 and 10 asked?

    It was the area of OPB (which was 16) not OAB
    I swear OPB was 24 cause it was 10 across and 4.2 up so 10*4.2*1/2 is 24?

    I know you can't really guess grade boundaries, but does anyone know what the grade boundaries are likely to be like?

    Yeah I know but I got something like
    3(2x - 10) -295 or something

    ...Oh crap I forgot it was 2x so it should've been -5 in the brackets...
    Nm!

    And I'm sorry I can't remember what either of them were! They sound familiar but XD

    Can someone please explain number 19 to me. so Sin(a) = k where a is acute and k in constant. It didn't say what 'a' was so how did you get one value in terms of K when a could be 0 < a < 90? I'm so confused :'(
    Thanks

    For question 19, the sin(a) = k,

    Would I still get the marks if I put 1 for k, and -1 for -k? Plz someone reply
