1. do you guys still remember what q23 was?
2. (Original post by gcse0)
I got 19.2 units squared for the area of the triangle - is that right?
No it was 24
3. (Original post by darude_sand)
No it was 24
i swear it was 16 square units
4. (Original post by Nudelauflauf)
I swear OPB was 24 cause it was 10 across and 4.2 up so 10*4.2*1/2 is 24?
no because 4 was the height, 8 was the base and therefore area o the triangle was 16
5. (Original post by darude_sand)
No it was 24
How?
I thought it was 4.8*0.5*8 = 19.2
8-3.2 = 4.8 which was the y-coordinate
6. What do you think between 151 and 165 will be? Do you think the boundaries will be higher or lower than usual?
7. (Original post by Npt512)
i swear it was 16 square units
It was definitely 16 square units yes
8. (Original post by Loci Pi)
What do you think between 151 and 165 will be? Do you think the boundaries will be higher or lower than usual?
I'd say lower than usual, those two papers combined were harder than the 2015 papers, and that was 140 for an A^. Either way, 151 and 165 will both almost definitely be an A^

10. (Original post by Npt512)
do you guys still remember what q23 was?
Prove that 1/tan^2 x -1/cos^2 x(maybe sin^2 x idk) is a constant or something and you get -1 as an answer when you simplify it
11. Does anyone remember that last question? I think I messed it up
12. (Original post by gcse0)
How?
I thought it was 4.8*0.5*8 = 19.2
8-3.2 = 4.8 which was the y-coordinate
You had to split the area into to triangles, as you can't directly work out the area from (4.8*0.5*8). I don't know how you got 8, agree with you on 4.8 though. Did you work out the x coord of the point C, or whatever it was (the point in the middle)? And are you sure it was 8 for the x axis, and not 10? Because I remember C being at (4, 4.8) (I think that was it), and so as the total length was 10, you had two triangles. So then I did (6*0.5*4.8) + (4*4.8*0.5) = 24. I could be wrong I guess but I'm pretty sure that was on the right lines at least.

Yay, thanks
I think the boundary for A^ will be between 138 and 142. I found these papers really hard but I didn't find the 2015 paper too bad.
14. (Original post by gcse0)
How?

8-3.2 = 4.8 which was the y-coordinate
Yeah 8 might have been the base not 10 actually, still not 100% sure though
15. What were the questions/working outs for these answers?:

8. 106.7
9. x=-2
10. 15.2
13. 50a^2 / 3
18. (32/5) y^2
16. (Original post by etothepiiplusone)
1a. 30
b. -1.5
2a. 13 -2
6 1
b. 11/8
c. Because number of columns of B does not equal rows of A
3a. e.g 3, 5, 91
b. Factorised ab-11b = b(a-11) so b is arbitrary square e.g 4, a=36
4. 2744
5. 4/5
6. 12.31
7. 16
8. 106.7
9. x=-2
10. 15.2
11b. -5 <= f(x) <= 7
12a. 3(5-x)(5+x)
b. 12n
13. 50a^2 / 3
14. a=4, b=10
15. y=(8x)/(w+1)
16a.3^(-2b)
b. 5^(x+2)
c. 2^(3m)
17a. (4, -25)
c. 5.79 and 1.21
18. (32/5) y^2
19a.k
b. -k
c. sqrt(1-k^2)
20a. Angle at circumference is half angle at centre
b. e.g Angle in triangle 90-x
Angle on straight line 90+x
Opposite angle in cyclic quadrilateral 90-x
Other base angle 90-x
Other angle in triangle 180-2(90-x) = 2x QED
21a. (0, 8)
b. -2x+2
c. Normal equation y=-1/2 x + 8
So intersects at (16, 0)
2*6 = 16-4
22. (-6/5, -7/5) and (2, 5)
23. -1
24. 3(2x-5)^2 - 70
Can you please put the marks in, I don't care if they are only a guestimate

Please someone make a list of marks, I want to see how I did, +rep to whoever wants to
17. What do you think 140 would be? A*? I really wanted that A^... oh well
18. Not sure about the others, but for 13. 50a^2 / 3 it was a 3 mark question where you had to simplify three fractions (one multiplied and one divided) that had powers of a.

you can see from the diagram that OBP = 8 x 4 x 0.5 = 16

Will I still get the mark if I write -30?
that's what I thought too I wrote 30 though I think you will only lose 1 mark if any
