# Core 1 Edexcel Watch

1. (Original post by Oscarchow)
How to square root a huge fraction?????
If you are talking about the area of the quadrilateral question, I got ****ed up the ass on it too

Swear Edexcel had nicer numbers in the past papers.
It's always our year
Yeah I literally did all the maths past papers for edexcel and are whole numbers but that exam omg! It better be the fractions not whole numbers!
3. I got 17/2 as the gradient and I got k=41/8 and I thought it should have been 5 so I put 5, I am so pissed off cus now I got the wrong tangent and y value. Why do they have to make things so annoying with stupid fractions in a non calculator paper

k = 41/8 .... Why not just 5, thanks for being difficult
Is the answer k=41/8?? Because that's what I got!

so many improper fractions, thought I was going wrong, never have I done a paper with fractions like this.
9. for the simultaneous equations question, all the x and y values were fractions right?
10. Easy peasy.

Yeh I got 17/2 somewhere, I got it as a gradient and then got it as another answer in that question
12. For the area of the quadrilateral did people get 54 1/3 ???
13. and also how many marks was the question about john's uncle giving him money?? i got 18 but then forgot to add it to 10 ffs. How many marks do you think I will get??
14. I THINK I MESSED UP. As far as I remember I got K= 41/6. FFS
