    Disclaimer: These are just my answers (well what I remember of them). Feel free to offer alternatives and additions to them (I will add them as soon as I can, but I have got further maths tomorrow to revise for ) I don't remember many of the marks, so feel free to add stuff!

    1. Integrate \frac{2}{3}x^{3}-6x^{\frac{1}{2}}+1
    Answer: \frac{1}{6}x^{4}-4x^{\frac{3}{2}}+x+c
    (4 marks)
    2a. Show that x^2-8x+17 is always positive
    Answer (x-4)^2+1 has a vertex of (-4,1) which is >0. The coefficient is positive, so the curve opens upwards. Hence, it is always positive
    b. A number plus three is squared. It is greater than the square of the original number:
    -Sometimes?
    -Always?
    -Never?
    Explain why
    (n+3)^2>n^2
    n^2+6n+9>n^2
    6n+9>0
    n>\frac{-3}{2}
    Therefore, sometimes true.

    3a Given A and B, find AB: A was (4i+5j) and B was (-5i-2j)
    Find AB=OB-OA= -9i+3j
    b) \sqrt{90}=3\sqrt{10}

    4a. l1: 4y-3x=10
    l2 goes through two points A(1,5) and B(-1,8)
    Are these lines parallel, perpendicular or neither?
    The gradients are neither equal or negative recipricols of each other, hence neither.

    5a.The logs did not have the same coefficient so the substraction law could not be applied.The student did 3^2 rather than 2^3
    b. Solve the log equation correctly to get 2^2=4

    6a. £15 is not a sensible price, since the profit is negative (prove with P=100-6.25(15-9)^2=-125
    b.80<100-6.25(x-9)^2
    6.25(x-9)^2<20
    (x-9)^2<3.2
    -\sqrt{3.2}<x-9<\sqrt{3.2}
    \frac{45-4\sqrt{5}}{5}<x<\frac{45+4\sqrt{  5}}{5}
    Smallest value of x is £7.22
    c.i) Maximum profit is when -6.25(x-9)^2=0
    Therefore P=100
    Profit= £100,000
    ii)-6.25(x-9)^2=0
    x-9=0
    x=9
    £9.00

    7a. sinx=0.6
    Therefore, cosx= \pm0.8
    b. BC^2=5^2+10^2-2(5)(10)cosx
    BC^2=125-100(-0.8)=205
    BC=\sqrt{205}

    8a. velocity for the minimum cost
    I've written \frac{5\sqrt{330}}{11}?
    b. Cost associated with that £243.16 *Pretty sure this is wrong, but it's what I've written down :dontknow:

    9a. Show (x+2) was a factor of g(x)
    b. Fully factorise it to (x+2)(2x-5)^2
    c.i) x<=-2 OR x=\frac{5}{2}
    ii)x=-1, x=\frac{4}{5}

    10. Show from first principals that x^3 differentiates to 3x^2

    11a. Binomial expansion of the first three terms in ascending terms of x (2-\frac{x}{16} )^9
    2^9+9\times2^8\times\frac{-x}{16}+36\times2^7\times(\frac{-x}{16})^2
    512-144x+18x^2
    b. the first two terms of (a+bx)((2-\frac{x}{16})^9) are 128 and 36x.
    Find a and b
    128=512a
    a=\frac{1}{4}
    b=\frac{9}{64}

    12a. Rearrange the trig equation
    b. 16.1, 40, 80

    13a q=10^{0.05}=1.122
    p=10^{4.8}=63100(4sf)
    b.P was the value of the painting in 1980. Q was the rate of change in the value of the painting
    c. Value of painting 30 years later: £2,000,000.00

    14a equation of circle: (x-3)^2+(y+5)^2=25
    i) centre (3,-5)
    ii) radius 5
    b) Find the values of k when y=kx intersects the circle twice
    Use discriminant by plugging y=kx into equation of circle
    k&lt;0 OR k&gt;\frac{15}{8}

    15a line equation: y=\frac{-1}{2}x+8
    C=32x^{-2}+3x-8
    Integrate C between 2 and 4=10
    Area of triangle: \frac{1}{2}\times6\times12=36
    10+36=46.(10 marks)

    I've got a lesson now so I'll add more detail later if I still remember!

    q 9(cii) was actually 4/5 and -1, since it was 2 inside the bracket, meaning a compression. You've said it's an extension.

    I even put x=2x into it, and saw the roots that I go, and it was correct.

    question 13c was 2,000,000 as it asked for the nearest hundred thousand, not thousand.

    the logs was: P was the price of the art work in 1980, and q confused me. I just said it's the rate of change.

    question 14b, the other end of the tai was 15/8

    I'll add them when I get home! (currently in a further mechanics lesson so probably wouldn't be popular if I started this :lol: This is totally me looking at the mark scheme for the questions we're doing

    Alternative answer for 2)a) is to complete the square to get (x-4)^2 +1 >0. Since the x-4 is squared, even if x is less than 4, squaring it will make it positive hence always >0.

    4)a) the points were (1,5) (-1,8) i think, giving u a gradient of -3/2 which =/= 3/4 hence not parallel.

    Question 3A - A was (4i+5j) and B was (-5i-2j) if my memory serves me correct
    Question 4 - I got nether as the gradient of Line 1 was neither the same or the negative reciprocal of Line 2's gradient
    Question 4 - I am quite sure that A was (5, -1) and B was (-1,8)
    Question 8 - I think the equation was C=1500/v + 2v/11 + 60
    Question 12 - The Trig equation was 4Cosx - 1 = 2(sinx)(tanx) Where x represents theta

    Hopefully we can figure out question 5 now
