    No you half the 8x to get positive 4.

    Then you square 4 to get 16, take that away from the 21 to get 5 (b)

    I'm in year 10 too, but I messed up a lot in the non-calc so I'm probably getting an A

    Don't worry, you need to work harder in the Calc paper to get that A*

    I'm exactly same with you! How many marks do you need in the calculator exam for your A*? Because it will more or less be the same for me too

    Hey, how did everyone find the maths exam? I thought it was a mixed bag, some questions were great and for others I was clueless :/ But I managed to answer all but one of the questions so I'm quite proud!

    Anyway, I have a question about trigonometry/sine rule/cosine rule and I was wondering if someone could help me out? I know how to use all the different functions to find angles and sides in a triangle but in an exam situation I never know which one to use. is there a way of remembering depending on the type of triangle and what information you're given?
    Hope that made sense!

    sine rule - 2 sides known and non included angle know
    cosine rule- 2 sides known and included angle known
