U see the triangle and the shaded area?

the two long sides were equal and were both root 2 over 2.
the shorter sides was smaller and was root 3 over 3.
we then had to times root 2 over 2 by itself then divide by 2, then do the same but with root 2 over 2 x root 3 over 3 then divide that by 2.
Finally had to minus the larger area by the smaller to get the smaller one.
12. I got that

question 16 i got 7x10 to the 2??? how do you get 7 x 10 to the 8? someone please help
3.5x10^6 / 5x10*^-3

350000 / 0.005

700000/0.01

70000000/1

70000000 = 7x10^8

High B
If you get 68, on the next one that should bring you to an A...
17. (Original post by Azzam240)
student room garde boundaries are always usually wrong. The A* for this will probs be mid 80 as it wasnt too bad. I got 81% with harsh marking
So how much do you need out of 200 for like a B?
18. have u included the working out what u have done if u got a answer wrong
19. For the vectors question if I wrote 1/4 (3a +3b) instead of 3/4 (a+b) is that still right? And will it get 3 marks?
