I'm not sure why everyone is so happy with the paper. It was much more difficult than the previous 2 or 3 years. Did everyone get 8 and 13 for the bees question?

Could've been 32 I got! How did you do it? I couldn't understand how to work out the bee formula so I extended the diagram thing to find G6 and G7, hopefully get a few marks for it anyway haha

I draw a triangle from C to the max point, then down to the horizontal i drew from C, left. i got the Y value (opposite) by taking the Y coordinates away (C and max point ) then the X coordinate(adjacent )
the same way , then worked out tan to get the angle. Not sure if that's what you were support to do though

i got 52 degrees by using the dy/dx of the parabola that you worked out in the previous part and using the x value of the point at the net. you get the slope of the tangent at that point then sub that into the acute angle between two lines formula using 0 as the second slope because its the slope of the x axis and you come out with an answer of 52 degrees or something along those lines

I got 52 as well but I think it's wrong? I done the horizontal from A, but the Q was the horizontal from when it went into the hoop .. maybe the two answers are the same though!

I'm just curious but I did my simequations twice and I still got the same decimal figures anyone else get decimals. All and all the paper was manageable way easier than the pre papers
