Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

That was a tricky one, everyone at school seems to have different answers:
Mine being (2 - root 6)/12.
I got something very similar to this, I don't suppose you remember the exact question? I've drawn it out but can't remember the numbers they used
2. So do i

I got 3 - square root 6 over 12
Me too. 99% sure that is correct.

The tennis question was 0.04 I believe - 0.8 x 0.05.

I got 7*10^7???

(3.5x10^6)/(5x10^-3)

350000/0.005

Therefore 700000/0.01 = 700000000/1

700000000 = 7x10^8
9. You should put the marks next to the question

Big triangle was (root 2)/2 on both sides, the edge CD was (root 3)/3.

Me too

So was CD root3/3 and ad=ab root2/2?
area smaller triangle = 1/2 x root 3/3 x root 2/2
=root6/12
area bigger triangle = 1/2 x root 2/2 x root 2/2
= 1/4
area of shaded region = 1/4 - root 6/12
=3/12 - root 6/12
=3-root6/12
there you go everyone

I got 7*10^7???
i think it was 7 x 10^8
20. (Original post by 34908seikj)
(3.5x10^6)/(5x10^-3)

350000/0.005

Therefore 700000/0.01 = 700000000/1

700000000 = 7x10^8
Sh¡t I got 7 zeros at the end of my answer not 8
