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
(4 marks)
2a. Show that is always positive
Answer 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

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)

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 rather than
b. Solve the log equation correctly to get

6a. £15 is not a sensible price, since the profit is negative (prove with
b.

Smallest value of x is £7.22
c.i) Maximum profit is when
Therefore P=100
Profit= £100,000
ii)

x=9
£9.00

7a. sinx=0.6
Therefore,
b.

8a. velocity for the minimum cost
I've written ?
b. Cost associated with that £243.16 *Pretty sure this is wrong, but it's what I've written down

9a. Show (x+2) was a factor of g(x)
b. Fully factorise it to
c.i) x<=-2 OR
ii)

10. Show from first principals that differentiates to

11a. Binomial expansion of the first three terms in ascending terms of x

b. the first two terms of are 128 and 36x.
Find a and b
128=512a

b=

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

13a

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:
i) centre (3,-5)
b) Find the values of k when y=kx intersects the circle twice
Use discriminant by plugging y=kx into equation of circle

15a line equation:

Integrate C between 2 and 4=10
Area of triangle:
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

Thanks for these
I'll add them when I get home! (currently in a further mechanics lesson so probably wouldn't be popular if I started this 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

AHHHHHH!!! I got most of them

PS. for 9cii, I'm sure it was g(2x) so x=-1 and x=5/4...

Thank you so much for this, ive probably dropped like 25-40 marks, 25 if im giving method marks but 40 if im being strict, 60/100, hopefully i can get a C

Im pretty happy with myself cant lie : D

I've sure you've got more than 10 You can still get method marks even if you don't get the right answer.

I think the final answer was but I can't remember the original q If you can remember it, feel free to send me a PM and I'll try and help you work through it.
It's called LaTex (pronouned La-tec) and it's just a way to write mathematical formulae on TSR.

Anyone remember question 5???

Btw for question 8 i got 90. Something in speed and 93. Something for price.... I know at least two others who got this as well
