For q12 dii)
Did we just have to show that P was the midpoint of AB to show O lies on the circle? did we have to give reasoning or something that PA and PB were equal radii?
that's wat I did.
came out of exam, face palmed coz I coulda saved time by proving they were perpendicular, right angle subtended by diameter.

One mark was probably for using Interrogation by parts
One mark for doing what now?

lose 1-2 marks or get 1-2 marks?
Get, I'd be more leaning towards 2/4.

Yer but that doesn't mean that P is the centre.

I did it by finding the lengths of each and stating they were all equal radii. Is that still ok?

That's right.

You had to also state that angle AOB was a right angle.
what about finding equation of circle and finding x and y intercepts being A and B?
does this work aswell?

also, if I did two inflexions for the y^2 = f(x) graph where y=1, the question is worth 2 marks, will I lose one?

Does Terry Lee put up 2U solutions or does no one care about 2U?

That can work if you did it properly, it's hard though without seeing working out. But assuming you did it all right, it's fine.

That was today?

#### anomalousdecay

That was today?
Yeah. Its at the same time. Then General was on at 2pm.

yo, can look at the attachment in the carrotsticks forum.
I need help, just pm me wat I'm doing wrong, coz the answer simply doesn't come out.

I know Was a joke since he said no one cares about 2U.

I'd rather not destroy my neck looking at it.

I think you just interrogated me. Again.

lol. right click save as, rotate in picture viewer

#### Trebla

Finally, fixed everything. Thanks Trebla! Had the answer but was freaking out because I didn't rationalise the denominator so I thought I had it wrong, and I was at the end of my tether.

Could also be the 2x large red bull cans making me more jittery than usual.
I'm a 'dingus' too.

Spent 1 hour on a Cosine rule question because I could not do the following:

1. Use the cosine rule correctly.

2. Use SOH CAH TOA.
Always glad to help bby. Sorry I prolonged your frustration when I said I would send over my solution to how I got my answer and took like 30 minutes to do so. It's always fun doing HSC Maths at work hehe.
