As usual, please leave a comment should you spot any mistake in the solution – Miss Loi’s a human too!

**Now for Paper 2:** Here’s a list of *possible* topics that may appear for tomorrow **MORNING**‘s Paper 2.

- Matrices
- Change in base
- Exponential equations (with substitution method e.g. let
`y`= e^{x})

- Factor & Remainder Theorem
- Partial Fractions
Quadratic Equations & Inequalities

- Circles
- Plane Geometry
Trigonometry

- Trigonometric equations/graphs/identities
- Addition Formula
- Factor Formula

Cause for the last question, I got the first part correct . But the rest i got wrong :/ (Idiotic Mistake D:) - But the method is correct @@

@Luchia Kiryu: Yes Method Marks are not a myth ...

Here's a quote from the past:

More details and Miss Loi's elaboration (as applied to local context) here but in a nutshell,

Mleads toA(answer mark) and you cannot getAwithoutMi.e. your workings leading up to the answer must be correct - noAmark(s) will be awarded should you happen to obtain your answer without workings or byby luck(usually in long multi-mark questions)B(the other kind of answer mark) is independent ofM(usually in short 1-mark questions or, say, a 3-mark question requiring 3 specific answers)
