If you have been given an Answer Booklet, follow the instructions on the front cover of the Booklet. Write your Centre number, candidate number and name on all the work you hand in. Write in dark blue or black pen.
You may use a soft pencil for any diagrams or graphs.
Do not use staples, paper clips, highlighters, glue or correction ﬂuid. Answer all the questions.
Give non-exact numerical answers correct to 3 signiﬁcant ﬁgures, or 1 decimal place in the case of angles in degrees, unless a different level of accuracy is speciﬁed in the question. The use of an electronic calculator is expected, where appropriate. You are reminded of the need for clear presentation in your answers. At the end of the examination, fasten all your work securely together. The number of marks is given in brackets [ ] at the end of each question or part question. The total number of marks for this paper is 75.
Questions carrying smaller numbers of marks are printed earlier in the paper, and questions carrying larger numbers of marks later in the paper.
This document consists of 4 printed pages.

Find the coefﬁcient of x in the expansion of x +
The volume of a spherical balloon is increasing at a constant rate of 50 cm3 per second. Find the rate 
of increase of the radius when the radius is 10 cm. [Volume of a sphere = 4 π r3 .] 3
(i) Sketch the curve y = (x − 2)2 .
(ii) The region enclosed by the curve, the x-axis and the y-axis is rotated through 360◦ about the x-axis. Find the volume obtained, giving your answer in terms of π . 
The diagram shows a prism ABCDPQRS with a horizontal square base APSD with sides of length 6 cm. The cross-section ABCD is a trapezium and is such that the vertical edges AB and DC are of lengths 5 cm and 2 cm respectively. Unit vectors i, j and k are parallel to AD, AP and AB respectively. −→
(i) Express each of the vectors CP and CQ in terms of i, j and k.
(ii) Use a scalar product to calculate angle PCQ.
(i) Show that the equation 2 tan2 θ sin2 θ = 1 can be written in the form
2 sin4 θ + sin2 θ − 1 = 0.
(ii) Hence solve the equation 2 tan2 θ sin2 θ = 1 for 0◦ ≤ θ ≤ 360◦ .

A television quiz show takes place every day. On day 1 the prize money is $1000. If this is not won the prize money is increased for day 2. The prize money is increased in a similar way every day until it is won. The television company considered the following two different models for increasing the prize money.
Increase the prize money by $1000 each day.
Increase the prize money by 10% each day.
On each day that the prize money is not won the television company makes a donation to charity. The amount donated is 5% of the value of the prize on that day. After 40 days the prize money has still not been won. Calculate the total amount donated to charity
(i) if Model 1 is used,
