Well A levels are harder than highers so. I've actually never done higher maths at school. I suck at maths

Questions A and B have been fairly well explained, for the median question just remember that AD is the line through point A and the midpoint of BC. So you'll need to use the co-ordinates of B and C to work out D, you then have two points on the line AD and so can work out the equation using the same methods described above.

As concerns Scottish system vs. English, I gather that Higher maths ~ AS Maths and AH Maths ~ A2 Maths ~ First year of Scottish university maths courses. Scottish university degrees take four years compared to three in England and most people have the qualifications to go to them after fifth year (Year 12), but generally don't until after sixth (Year 13).

Never thought about Scotland but they are already back at school so good assumption! I assumed Ross was GCSE higher tier as I know nothing about the Scottish system. This level of question could be GCSE, AS C1/C2 or indeed OCR Add Maths (FSMQ).

If it is Scottish highers then I'm sure you'd be expected to use the standard results for x,y plane coordinate geometry to get the answers.

Ross, I'm happy to send you some notes on this if they'd be helpful.
