is it -5/6 or 5/6?
5/6
2. (Original post by Alex.trin)
Surely it can't be simplified as 36 isn't divisible by 5?
yeah but if it's the square root of -25/36, you can square root both the top and bottom of the fraction to get -5/6

its not negative 5/6 , its positive
4. For the obtuse angle question
Did anyone else get cosx =-5/6

Ohhhhh I seen, you square root them. Hopefully I've only lost 1 marks

The angle is obtuse so X would lie in the sin quadrant so cos x would be negative
8. oh yeah its negative my bad
9. -5/6 its obtuse a positive would be acute

14. For the question about n is towards infinity did anyone get 5/3?
15. (Original post by SmithAmelia)
Could anyone who has successfully finished the last question please explain how they reached their answer? Thanks
I did the cosA= version of the cosine rule and came to the conclusion that w=3n which means 2 sides were equal to 3n so it was isosceles.
16. what did everyone get for the matrix q
