One of them was a find the area of a function using integration

2nd one was finding the volume of the function 8ln (x-1)

Final one was a maxima/minima question I believe. Gave us a big cone, and a cylinder inside the cone. Asked us to find another expression for the cylinder, and also to find out that the volume of the cylinder would never exceed 4/9 of the volume of the cone no matter what parameters were used.

Anyways, I wanted to cry on the last one.

Easiest HSC test ever, apart from a few questions like the area of the triangle it wasn't hard and they gave you almost all the answers.

Also btw, the question with the elevator thingy going down asked for how much the ride has to go down, not how much above the ground it was

Haha good test. Bet everyone on BOS got 100% on that test, nothing really was crazy apart from the last part which may have tripped people up.

I know I definitely lost marks on some, still hoping for 80+ raw, but might be a little less depending how many dumb mistakes I made. Forgot how to find n for the loan question :( lol I know (I couldn't get n by itself). Couldn't do the geometry question, the similar triangles one, and couldn't find max water falling out or whatever. So those the ones I lost marks, so I dunno hopefully 80+.

Here are 2 unit solutions from John Drake from the Emanuel School. I haven't checked them though.
I just checked multiple choice, I'm not gonna check short answers, I don't wanna stress myself out lol.
