Candidates may use any calculator EXCEPT those with the facility for symbolic algebra, differentiation and/or integration. Thus candidates may NOT use calculators such as the Texas Instruments TI-89, TI-92, Casio CFX-9970G, Hewlett Packard HP 48G.

Instructions to Candidates In the boxes on the answer book, write the name of the examining body (Edexcel), your centre number, candidate number, the unit title (Further Pure Mathematics FP1), the paper reference (6667), your surname, initials and signature. When a calculator is used, the answer should be given to an appropriate degree of accuracy. Information for Candidates A booklet ‘Mathematical Formulae and Statistical Tables’ is provided. Full marks may be obtained for answers to ALL questions. This paper has eight questions. Advice to Candidates You must ensure that your answers to parts of questions are clearly labelled. You must show sufficient working to make your methods clear to the Examiner. Answers without working may gain no credit.

(a) Obtain the general solution of the differential equation dS - 0.1S = t. dt

(6) (b) The differential equation in part (a) is used to model the assets, £S million, of a bank t years after it was set up. Given that the initial assets of the bank were £200 million, use your answer to part (a) to estimate, to the nearest £ million, the assets of the bank 10 years after it was set up. (4)
