1. Mathswatch are streaming their videos on youtube after it kept crashing before paper one.
So even if your school doesn't have access you can now, they are useful.

John invested £2500 for 2 years in a savings account.
He was paid 3% per annum compound interest.

How much did John have in his savings account after 2 years? REMEMBER THE EQUATION FOR THIS ONE.
£2652.25

What's the equation?
6. (Original post by hafsa473)
What's the equation?
His final amount= original amount x multiplier^years
7. (Original post by hafsa473)
What's the equation?
so final amount= 2500 x 1.032

Prove that (5n+1)^2 - (5n-1)^2 is an even number, for all positive integer values of n.
Wait, this is a GCSE maths paper?! We do proof by induction in the further maths pure AS module!

That specific question is in the pixl predicted paper

Oh okay, so it must like an extension paper then?. Honestly though, if you can prove that without being taught it in class (I don't know if the syllabus has changed since I've done it) then you're a G at maths dawg.

Thanks for this, it seems easier than it first looks!
14. To do this;

Ac^2 = 5^2+3^2
Ac^2 = 25+9
AC^2 = √34
-------------------
Tan(x) = 5/3
x = Tan^-1 (5/3)
= 59.03624347°
sin (59.0) = opp(80)/3

BD= 3sin (59.0)
=2.57247877

PM for more I AM SOO SCARED FOR TOMORROW AIMING FOR A* xD
15. How would I do this question?

How would I do this question?

Sector
40/360 x π (8)^2
=22.34021443cm^2

Triangle
1/2(8)(8)sin40
=20.56920351cm^2

Shaded Area = Sector - Triangle = 1.7710109cm^2 = 1.77 (3sf)
17. solve 3x^2-5x-1=0
give your solutions correct to 3 significant figures

I know it's easy, but I don't want to give you hard questions to stress you out before tomorrow haha

Quadratic formula, punch your numbers in, watch for minuses and then get your two answers. I would give the actual answer but I really can't be bothered to get my calculator.
19. Anyone wanna have a go at this?
20. (Original post by B3ASTy)

no it is 20n which you need to factorise to give you 2(10n)

i answered the question when you first posted it, i am not sure if you saw it
