    Calculating for u in the end of last question gave me some weird number... although area of triangle worked out really nicely.

    Overall it didnt go too bad. I answered all the questions except one 2 marker but time was an issue as i didnt have time to do an overall check of answers. Hopefully careless mistakes are minimal.

    Everything went smooth except the very last vector question where you were supposed to find the possible positions of C. How'd you guys manage that?

    Urm, i think I made a quadratic equation to find U or whatever the scalar parameter was and once i found U i subbed in to find possible C coordinates. Got some decimals/fractions so not too sure myself but i think the method is correct

    Btw guys, in that question where they ask an answer in the form 'a+ln(b)' did the intergration leave you with just an LN function?

    at first it did but when i rechecked the first step where you split it into partial fractions you ought to divide first as it is an improper fraction

    I'm not all that sure but it was a pretty long sum for that dh/dt question. I can't remember the time clearly tho soz

    You can never be sure tbh. Do you think the boundary will be high? The highest I've seen it go is 115. The easier the paper the higher the boundaries But i dont think this is the easiest paper. What ya reckon? I think 108-110 maybe?

    There was a problem which we had to find in form of a+ln n..
    Calculations were pretty dirty and it was like - 3ln3+7ln2.. so ln 2^7 / 27 or sth..
