2.20 and 11.8
Yep . Fuc* Edexcel!
5. Has anyone got an Edexcel account. I really need GCSE Maths 9-1 Sample Assessments (Issue 1).
6. Find the value of such that
,
giving your values of in their exact form.

I wonder where you got that question from.....

Here is my workings!

Solve x^4 +3x^2 -2 =0

Let t = x^2

Therefore t^2 +3t -2 =0

t = (-3 +√17) / 2 or t = (-3-√17) / 2

Therefore x^2 = (-3 +√17) / 2 or x^2 = (-3-√17) / 2

x = √(-3 +√17) / 2 or x = √(-3-√17) / 2 Discard this value.

x = 0.749368275

A* here I come!
10. More hard questions pls!

Yeah boi!
13. Judging by the new style of questions…

If 1+1=2,

What is the Force on the Sun when hydrostatic pressure of 1023222Pa is exerted on a surface area of 2m^2?

I'm fine!

You've only put one answer down? (Try and stick to exact values as well).
It may be useful to explain why you have rejected 2 answers.

Well we were told that the perimeter of rectangle is 28cm. So if we denote the length of the rectangle as y, then the perimeter would be the whole distance around the rectangle. Which would be 2x + 2y.

We now that the perimeter is 2x +2y, therefore we can equate this to 28 as we were told that the perimeter of the rectangle is 28cm.

Equation 1:

2x + 2y =28

Dividing through by two. Therefore x + y = 14. Then we can rearrange the equation making y the subject. Which gives us, y = 14 - x

Another fact the we now is that the width is xcm and the length of the diagonal is 12 cm. As we have let the length of the rectangle equal to y, we can now you Pythagoras which gives us x^2 + y^2 = (12)^2. Which simplifies to x^2 +y^2 =144

We now have two equations.

Equation 1: x + y = 14 and Equation 2: x^2 + y^2 =144. I would now like you to solve these simultaneous equations. Hope this helped!

Another fact the we now is that the width is 8cm and the length of the diagonal is 12 cm. As we have let the length of the rectangle equal to y, we can now you Pythagoras which gives us x^2 + y^2 = (12)^2. Which simplifies to x^2 +y^2 =144

We now have two equations.

Quick question: how would you know that the width is 8?

It is not necessary to solve simultaneous equations for this question.
Simply one of the side lengths is and the other is (Pythagoras). Then simply solve the equation

Sorry my fault the which is xcm as they stated that in the question. I must have put 8cm by accident. I have edited my written explanation and changed it to xcm. Sorry about that!
