(b)(i)u5=35
(ii)851
3(a)3x²-13x-30=0
(b)(i)6, -3/5
(ii)reject -3/5 as log negative is invaid
4(a)A=55
(b)H=55(e^(-0.136x))+30
5(a)Show that k=12
(b)(0,-28)
6(a)-(2y+3x²)/(6y+2x)

Thank you. 2h was definitely not enough…literally panicking after seeing this

For 15, I got to sin2x>0 by expanding the bracket, could be wrong though, probs multiple methods.

Yes i got this. If you solve for x, there are no solutions that are obtuse, hence the contradiction!

Yea any valid method will do
How many marks was subscriber question (Q13)
same

Same. I think you could use that and then say for obtuse x u can't pos sin2x

Can someone make this into a document with marks ??
12c isn’t 18. You had to 5-1.44 then input that value of h. H wasn’t 5
is there another value for 14b of 450° as it's the sin2x graph for [360,540] ?

In the q it said x≠ 450

No you didn't since the model takes that into account with +c so it's 18 and H=5

Yh 490.7
Someone pls make a docccc
By the way, the negative log is still valid because x^2 makes any answer positive. So, there are no invalid answers!

h was 5 as it was a model for the total height not change in height. Otherwise h^3/2 would be 0 when t = 0
