# 8th May Maths Paper 2 full solutions

#### notnek01

Hi,

24 hours have passed so I can upload my solutions to Paper 22.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

- I will not answer any questions like, 'What will I need to get this grade' or 'How hard/easy was the paper, what will the A boundary be'.

I will be posting solutions to paper 42 on 14th May in a different thread.

What the hell? Isn't this cheating or did people all over the world done with this paper?? Oh now I'm going to be depressed by checking my answers
24 hours have passed since the keytime for this paper so what I'm doing is perfectly fine.

I'm an IGCSE teacher which is how I have the paper.

An A* doesn't exist for an individual paper. 64/70 will definitely be at least an A.

The grade for this paper isn't really important - it's the total mark out of 200 that matters.

Similar shapes question : You'll get at least 1 mark and maybe 2. I would guess that you'll get 1 mark.

Functions question : Because 1/4x is not the answer Can you post your working to show how you got 1/4x then I can show you your mistake.

#### notnek01

You're making it worst I feel terrible now, THANKS! And i have Ict & geo tomorrow. Well the past is past haha paper 4 is yet to come
Sorry - I probably shouldn't have told you that!

Just ignore everything I said and focus on your other exams. I'm sure you'll do well

look u do 1/2*(1/x) then it becomes 1/2/2x instead of writing it like that u just multiply 2 x 2x which is 4x thus its 1/4x

Where did you get 1/2/2x from?

#### Princess Raven

when u do 1/2(1/2x) then u multiply the numberator which is 2 with 1 becoming 1/2/2x...

It changes every year and I haven't seen Paper 4 yet so it's impossible for me to know.
