  • Interests:I'm me, I guess. I wear glasses, have short spiked hair, about 5ft 9 (I think). I left fifth year of school in 2005 and is currently unemployed. I used to go to Strathclyde University to do MEng Chemical Engineering, but I hated the course, so I quit. I've started doing MSc Mathematics, from September 2006, as I have a keen (almost unhealthy) interest in Mathematics, and its applications.<br /><br />The grades I achieved in the exams:<br /><br />1 - Standard Grade Mathematics<br />1 - Standard Grade Physics<br />1 - Standard Grade Chemistry<br />1 - Standard Grade Computing Studies<br />1 - Standard Grade Craft and Design<br />2 - Standard Grade English<br />2 - Standard Grade Geography <br /><br />A (Band 1) - Higher English<br />A (Band 1) - Higher Mathematics<br />A (Band 2) - Higher Chemistry<br />B (Band 3) - Higher Physics<br /><br />Anything else ya wanna know about me, PM me or add me to your MSN contact list and chat to me there. :P

Past Paper solutions index

You should check this before you post, as mostly the question has already been attempted before on the forum. It saves time. tongue.gif

Edit: Never mind, the solution's gone for some reasons. I'll give you some tips on the question if I can find the paper.

2nd Edit: Ugh, I can't remember how to do this, it's been a year since I've attempted this kind of question, I'll wait for someone else to help. tongue.gif

m= -2 (using y2-y1..etc)
c= 1 (from graph)

hence:
log5y = -2log5x + 1
log5y = log5x-2 + log55
log5y = log55x-2

therefore:

y=5x^-2

i havent checked that against the answers but will do in the next 20 mins or so wink.gif

edit: that's right, but you have to state

k=5, n=-2
