The answer is 42. something. I think your mistake was that you forgot to add the fact that he travels twice a day, to and from work
Oh ***** yhhh f**k

Did anyone get 30.1 degrees for the compound triangle question?
yeah me and everyone I spoke to in school
3. (Original post by MR.ANONYMOUS 786)
I got around that as well. You had to convert it into pounds.. I think. I really hope I get an A. Although the questions were easy. The wording was tricky and I think that would have thrown off a lot of people. I'm just hoping for an A. God knows how hard I worked.

But didn't it say about him only traveling back from work not to work?
6. (Original post by Rajive)
I got 40.0?
Sameeee
7. (Original post by 34908seikj)
Wasn't the last question like 1/2 * 7 * 8 Sin(X) = 18

56Sin(x) = 36

Sin^-1(36/56) = X

x = 40

???

I think I did it wrong then.
One of the angles was 40 degrees but it wasn't the one the question asked for, although this was part of the method so you would get some marks.

Wasn't it suppose to be the cost per week so 5x(Cost of 1 day)?

if i get around 100 marks out of 200, what grade would that be?
that would be either an A/B usually

Ugh I got 30.0cm because I rounded the answer to 1 d.p for the Pythagorus theorem one.
Sameeee
Apparently we are wrong, we worked out the wrong angle lol

For the trial and improvement one my few ids were saying they got 3.7 but I got 3.8 and I was 100% sure that was right?

13. Yo this is exactly what i got for the simplifying questions, I was really doubting my answers too!

(Original post by rayestar)
one of the simplifying question was:
1/ -3x-4

the perimeter of the sectors was 28.9 I think

there was another question with an answer of:
2x/x^2-1
it was somewhere toward the end where you had to write two fractions as one
14. Was it hard peeps?
15. (Original post by ArMy07)
3? I got a decimal but I rounded it so it was 3 whole ones.
Lol, i flopped that question got some high number around in the 2hundreds
16. Best paper I've ever sat.. it's easier than every past paper I've done (and I've done them all possible at least 2 times)
17. Yep. It worked out at about 3.4 so rounded down to 3, I think anyway
18. Anyone know when Mr Kibria will have the worked solutions up?
19. trial and improvement answer was 3.8

angle of pentagon, answer was 144 degrees

answer for the two triangles combined was 30.1 degrees

probability of stem and leaf was 9/20

metal bar question answer was 3

second to last question was 2x/(x-1)(x+1)

one above that was -1/(3x+4)

sector question was 28.9 cm

the car park question was 42.78 pounds ish

56Sin(x) = 36

Sin^-1(36/56) = X

x = 40

I think I did it wrong then.
This is correct. I forgot to do the inverse but i shall at least get 3/4marks i think
