That's what I did haha I doubt I will get two marks for doing it that way!
Other people in my exam said they did too. I reckon we'll get 2.

What I did was since the line y=mx+1 cuts y-axis at 1, therefore for it to have one solution, the gradient had to be equal or steeper then the right arm of the curve y=|2x-3|, which had gradient 2. The gradient cannot be negative because it will cut twice.
you could also have it cut on the second arm of the absolute graph thing second arm

I was going to do that but it would have been a waste of time. So I left it. Bad idea...

I did something like 1/3(33000n + 1500n) > 87500,
Then its like 11500n > 87500,
n > 7.6,

So it's 8 years.

Dunno if this is legit, but it worked out for me

does anyone know what the raw cut off mark was to get an exam mark of 90 for last years paper?
It was 83..

Yeah, I remembered I solved a quadratic for n^2+43n-350=0 and you get n=7 n=-43, discarding the negative you get n=7

That paper was harder than all the previous years by heaps -.- FML.

Anyway, here's the paper since many of you want it. I cleared out some of my writing/working out so i hope you guys don't mind.

Enjoy.

If it weren't for the huge amount of working out needed for the stupid little questions, would've done a lot better.
