I got 48?
42x2=84
180-84=96
96/2=48?
But I may be wrong!
5. does anyone remember how many marks the spider q was? didn't realise it was Pythagoras

I didn't get that at all haha how did you get that? I think the equations were
Y= 2x^2+16x-9
Y=5x+3 (or-3?)

I put 2x^2+16x-9=5x+/-3 and then made them equal to zero and then used the quadratic formula to find x. Then I put x into the equation to find y for each value of x if that helps.

If you started like that you should get some marks at least and it was quite a tricky question
19. I wasn't sure if it had to walk on edges or it could on surfaces so I just did the edges with no Pythagoras ffs
20. it was Pythagoras and trig
