    I hope the grade boundaries are really low... I just want a C and then never have anything to do with maths again. If I fail I'll happily take the Nat 4 though lol and never take it again.

    Either way I never have to do maths again!

    I used Pythagoras to get the length of the side of the triangle (7cm) then I did 6/4 * 7 to get 10.5 but I highly doubt it's right

    last question on p2 was finding the length ? well it was 6.8cm by using the cosine rule. For angle ABC i do believe it was 74 deg, because BC and AB were tangents to the circle

    I also got 4, Im guessing you did what I did, I knew it was wrong because its not proportional. We messed up at the end of the calculations so we should get a fair couple of the marks
