Examiners report Part (a) was generally well done, although few candidates made the final deduction asked for. Those that lost other marks in this part were generally due to mistakes in algebraic manipulation. In part (b) whilst many students found the second derivative and set it equal to zero, few then confirmed that it was a point of inflexion. There were several good attempts for part (c), even though there were various points throughout the question that provided stopping points for other candidates.

Examiners report The implicit differentiation was generally well done. Some candidates did not realise that they needed to substitute into the original dy equation to find y. Others wasted a lot of time rearranging the derivative to make dx the subject, rather than simply putting in the particular values for x and y.

Examiners report This was the first question to cause the majority of candidates a problem and only the better candidates gained full marks. Weaker candidates made errors in the implicit differentiation and those who were able to do this often were unable to simplify the expression they gained for the gradient of the normal in terms of c; a significant number of candidates did not know how to simplify the logarithms appropriately.

Examiners report In part (a) (i), successful candidates typically sketched the graph of y = f(x), applied the horizontal line test to the graph and concluded that the function was not 1 − 1 (it did not obey the horizontal line test). In part (a) (ii), a large number of candidates were able to show that the equation of the normal at point P was 9x + 12y − 9 ln 3 − 20 = 0. A few candidates used the gradient of the tangent rather than using it to find the gradient of the normal. Part (a) (iii) challenged most candidates. Most successful candidates graphed y = f(x) and y = xf ′ (x) on the same set of axes and found the x-coordinates of the intersection points.

Examiners report Part (b) (i) challenged most candidates. While a large number of candidates seemed to understand how to find an inverse function, poor algebra skills (e.g. erroneously taking the natural logarithm of both sides) meant that very few candidates were able to form a quadratic in either ex or ey .

Examiners report Many candidates scored the full 6 marks for part (a). The main mistake evidenced was to treat k as a variable, and hence use the product rule to differentiate. Of the many candidates who attempted parts (b) and (c), few scored the R1 marks in either part, but did manage to get the equations of the straight lines.

Markscheme f ′ (x) = −2 sin x + sin x + x cos x (= − sin x + x cos x) f ′′ (x) = − cos x + cos x − x sin x (= −x sin x) so f ′′ (0) = 0

28c. John states that, because f ′′ (0) = 0 , the graph of f has a point of inflexion at the point (0, 2) . Explain briefly whether John’s

[2 marks]

statement is correct or not.

Markscheme John’s statement is incorrect because either; there is a stationary point at (0, 2) and since f is an even function and therefore symmetrical about the y-axis it must be a maximum or a minimum or; f ′′ (x) is even and therefore has the same sign either side of (0, 2)
