If only it had been a real fire in further maths instead and your paper burnt XD
That would've been nice

60% for a C
Is that grade boundary just for paper 1 or for both paper 1 and paper 2

Are u sure that’s right for 1b or am I forgetting the answer

1. a) find m when both lines are perpendicular, m=2
b)find x coordinate of intercepts (x=-5/2)

2. two equations to solve First was a=1/4?
second was definitely ±√2

Forgot the order so here are some of my answers:

Question on circles (centre of 2,-4) and radius of √28
the line x=k intersected at a tangent, find exact values of k, k=±√2
part c) was 2±2√7 or something like that

Queston on factorisation:
a) Prove (x-4) is a factor
b) prove the curve has two distinct roots (got x-4 as a repeated root) and -3/2 as the other root
c) Suggest the number of roots the graph f(x) - 2 had, should be three root as graph is translated by vector
(0, 2)

d)Find the value of k when f(x+k) crosses the orgin got k=4 which translated 4 to the left, or k=-3/2 which moves it 1.5 to the right

Question on trig:
a) Show that x = 2√3 when the area of the triangle is 18
b) Second question, find the length of AB, which was √84, simplifies to 2√21

Other trig question:
a) Had to show that a trig identity equals to -5cosx+4

b) solve to get tan=-5/3. Solutions are 301 and something 121

a) Find the value when n=1
b) State the max amount of tin they could mine
c) When n=4, as the year is 2023
d) Limitation of the model

Question on definitve integrals:
Had to find the x- coordinate for when x is a minimum. X=4
You then had to use this value and x=0 as your limits to differentiate the curve to get 256/3

Question on linear modelling about trees and their height and time
a) Find the relationship between H and t

H=0.31t+1.42

b) The original height was 140 cm = 1.4m, comment on the suitability of the model

Proof:
prove n³+2 is not divisble by 8.
I proved it by counter example and when n=2n (an even number) and when n=(2n+1) an odd number and got an expression that was not wholly divisible by 8

Question on exponentials, initial value was like 5700+2300 = 8000
part b differential the exponent to get what they asked
part c, find the time when it is valued at £500, got 8 years 3 months
d) limitation of the model

Last question on vectors:
a) state what is meant by non-zero or something to that extent

b)

|a + b| = |a| + |b|

m = |6| and |m-n|=3 and the angle between them is 30, had to find the angle between |m| and |n|

I got 15 degrees using the sin rule, however some people an angle of 135, which is 180-(15+30)

You are right coz it was in 2023 not until and I asked teachers and the said the same thing
(Original post by cmuld)
For the tin question part C I think they asked you to find the amount of tin mined in 2023, as opposed to the part A which was up to 2020 or whatever. So you had to do the equation for n+1 (5) and subtract it with n (4). At least this is what I did? Saw it was a 2 mark and re read the question and spotted it was differently worded

is this for the question about the car? you had to give your answer in years and months, rounded to the nearest month i think

Well it was -2.5 or -5/2

what value did you get, im pretty sure its -5/2, did it like 3 times in the exam

Tough. Let's just hope the grade boundaries are not high

vector question, part a: it wants you to say that they have to be parallel
