I feel like the paper got easier as it went on. Was harder then I was expecting though not sure how I feel tbh and not sure how the grade boundaries will be?

I struggled with the last parts of Questions 2 and 3. What did you guys get for the two values of K after finding T' was 770 square units?

I got K= -31.6 which seems really wrong, and for the co- ordinates in Q3 i got (0.8,12) which also seems wrong hahahaha

So, for the fiest question I had no idea how to solve. The one with hyperbola I just used my graphical calculator to work out the other value by plugging in the X into the equation of the normal. The induction question was ********, I was hoping for matrix one since it is very easy but the fraction part was mess. The sum of series was easy to prove, and for the series question WHICH WAS NEVER ASKED BEFORE EVER I got sum of r=5 and N was 20, 5r^2(5+r), something similar to that and it was correct since I manually did the sum. Was it root3 or negative root3 for the complex numbers question?

For Q3 you are correct

Edit: You would be correct if they were negative

Different exam

I thought it was going to be fine for the first few questions.. but when it got to the questions about chimpanzees, volumes of revolution, marbles and pipelines it all got a bit confusing! (Oh wait.. that's most of the questions...). It was definitely harder than the 2018 paper and the sample papers.

I got k in the mountain question as 200... no idea if that's wrong or not .

i think it doesnt matter if it is - root 3 or root 3 as you square it putting it back in the equation
