    it seems i got question 8 (b) (ii) wrong when i was so sure i got it right

    Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    dude just pointing out your solution to 7b iii) is wrong. in the first set of brackets in the third line, you had sin(2pi/3) as (2pi - root3)/2, whereas it should only be (root3)/2 so the answer comes out being 7.4 or so i think. also, an answer for 6a iii), the prove it's a rhombus one, would be great as i'm unsure about it. oh and in question 6b iii), i put the limiting value as 450 cause it only decreases from this initial value. i had never seen the term "limiting value" with regards to exponential growth/decay before so i assumed it was asking for the limit of how high the population gets. does this seem reasonable enough to get the mark? or am i way off track... thanks anyone who replies

    Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    hey Goodhew, with question 4C it doesnt say specifically that the girl does not put the chess pieces back after she picks them.. so doesnt t that mean the probability of chosing a colour at any time is 0.5? write back asap pls

    Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    yes it is non-replacement probability, SHE DOES NOT PUT THE CHESS PIECES BACK!!!
    That was confirmed by my mathematics teacher. I know a really smart girl who lost 4 marks in that probability.
    Silly mistakes these days(I lost like 3-10, am I bad)

    Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    in the probability question is doesnt specify whether she puts the pieces back or not. like what if she just picks one but doesnt actually take it away. thats what im trying to say. BOS should excuse that question

    You're absolutely right about the trig error, that's been fixed in the newest version of the solutions. I'm afraid the limiting value solution is correct however.

    The probabilities are without replacement as shown in the current version of the solutions. This is primarily because the question asks for different squares.

    Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    Here are my worked solutions. Based on the comments above, I'm fairly sure that these are OK.

    Smile Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    This is my solution to the last two parts of question 10, just in case anyone still cares (I am a bored accelerant at the moment). I hope this will clear up the errors with other solutions posted. Anyone with a graphing program is advised to make graphs of y and A against x, as this illustrates how the problem can be solved. Any comments or corrections, please write to selig90@hotmail.com

    Awesome, your solutions are identical to mine. Yay So v 1.25 of the solutions on the first post in this forum, as well as your solutions must be the correct solutions...phew.

    Re: 2006 HSC Mathematics Solutions

    your solutions are pretty good, except q10, the answa is 53.3333, not 32 root 3, otherwise they arecorrect, also the domain is 8/3 less than equal to x which is less than or equal to 6.
    Also everyone is forgetting to justify the minimum area they got in q10biv, did use guys use second derivative or show a change in sign.

    Don't worry man, all the other answers are pretty cool. You would have scored at least 117 raw with those answers.
