You needed to subtract 21 from 90. Therefore, answer is 69 degrees.(Original post by magicstars1233)
the circle theroms one was 90 degrees definatley
Alternatively it was (ironically) alternate segment theorem = 69.

Sorry, how can you be predicted 'A' and score just 51? I scored 4953 and me 'C''B' prediction.
Did you have really bad day?
I would imagine you mist do 100% on the calculator one to get 'A'x
QUOTE=SlippyG08;65228901]Someone plzzz help me!!! Im predicted an A but looking at this paper i've only got 51 marks. How many marks do i have to get in the calculator paper just to get an A overall?[/QUOTE]

You should only have one aim and that is to get (or get as close as you can to) 100% in the next paper !!
Good luck

For the circle one I got 10025pi and then simplified it to 4pi (I did write 10025pi in the answer box with it: how many marks will I get)
Also on the one with the fractions I did it wrote but didn't write it as a mixed number: how many marks will I get?
Also, on the last question I wrote1/4root6/12 (how many marks will I get?

I did the same for the circle one! But everyone else seems to think 10025Pi is right. Im confused as i thought it said simplify as low as possible which surely would be 4Pi right ?
Think about BIDMAS

You'd need to have factored out 25, so it was 25(4pi), otherwise you won't get the same answer.
