**Pure Year 1**Check your ISBN:

9781 292 20826 8 is the OLD uncorrected version 1

9781 292 18339 8 is the NEW (not very corrected) version 2

You can also tell version 2 as it has the number 1 at the bottom of the spine

**Mixed Exercise 2, question 2 b**

In worked solutions (-1/4,25/8) should be (-1/4, -49/16)

**page 39, section 3.1**

amend to:

"Linear simultaneous equations in two unknowns,

**that are neither equivalent nor contradictory,**have one set of values that will make a pair of equations true at the same time."

**page 50, example 11**

first line of the solution should say >2 rather than >x, in order to match the question -

*this is one thing that has been corrected in version 2!***page 52, exercise 3F, question 1**

part b) does not make sense, as you would need both equations in the form y= before writing the inequality. You could change it to L1>L2 but that is not a proper inequality. Instead it should read

3 - 1.5x > x-5

The worked solution is also wrong in this respect

**page 55, exercise 3G, question 2**

the answer in the book is completely correct, but the answer in the SolutionBank has the line x

__>__-1 as dotted rather than solid

**page 55, exercise 3G, question 3**

the first inequality should be < rather than > in the question -

*this is one thing that has been corrected in version 2!***Mixed Exercise 3, question 1**

y should equal 10 not -2 in worked solutions

**page 65, exercise 4B, question 1 part i**

mistake in the solution online, the x value on the graph should be plotted at '-5' however they have plotted it at '-3'

**page 74, exercise 4E, question 1e (ii)**

mistake in worked solutions online, should be positive cube root not negative cube root

**page 74, exercise 4E, question 1f (ii)**

mistake in worked solutions online, should be (3,0) not (5,0)

**exercise 4G question 2**

X and Y mixed up in worked solution

**Mixed Exercise 4, question 5**

The question has 4 parts but the worked solutions have 5 parts

**exercise 5G question 6 d**

root 5 not root 3

**page 122, exercise 6D, question 10**

question poorly phrased as it asks for the range of possible values for

*k*twice -

*this is one thing that has been corrected in version 2!***page 155, Mixed Ex 7, question 23**

the correct answer is 3 as the working in the back forgets to square root the Pythagoras.

**page 164, exercise 8C, question 2b**

the worked solutions should be -80x^3 rather than x^2

**page 190, exercise 9E, question 1**

for part h)

**t**he answer in the back has two solutions but the first makes no sense. Angle z (at vertex B) cannot be 61.3 degrees since it is opposite the shortest side AC=4.8 cm and angle A is smaller at 45 degrees.

**page 218, exercise 10E, question 2**

part e) the equation is in x but the interval is given in θ

**page 223, Mixed Exercise 10, question 14**

the answer in the back includes 0 and 360 degrees but these are not in the interval given in the question as 0<θ

**page 329, example 19**

Book uses R = aP^n but then plot log P against log R, meaning gradient wrong. Question should possibly be P = aR^n.

**exercise 13B question 2 a**

extra 5 in first term

**exercise 13B question 3 b**

two different mistakes in answers in back and in worked solutions

Even the new version does NOT correct the following errors:

**page 36 Exercise 2F question 9**

This has a rounding error. Standard deviation should be

**6.29**.**page 48 Section 3.4**

A frequency polygon cannot be formed by joining the midpoints of the
tops of the bars of a histogram

**page 66 Mixed Exercise 4 question 3 part a**

on the graph, amend the x axis label to

**Number of items (**.*n*)**page 67 Mixed Exercise 4 question 5 part c**

there is a mismatch between the question and the answer

amend to:

**The equation of the regression line of**

*g*on*t*for the remaining data is*g*= 44.9 – 0.47*t***c) Give an interpretation of the value -0.47 in this regression equation.**

The answer on page 216 should then read

**c) If the temperature increases by approximately 1**

^{o}C, the number of pairs of gloves sold each month decreases by 0.47.
The Solutionbank answer for this uses the regression line of

*t*on*g*as given, but has a totally different answer for part c based on 10 gloves predicting a 1.8 degree drop of temperature.

the upper tail inequalities are incorrect, and so the critical region is
wrong
