I assume just the sum of a geometric series?

We are given loads, but no geometry ones, gotta know about shapes, area, distance from points and stuff. The rest we are given I think.

Well last year the same thing happened and they introduced 'replacement' papers which were much harder than the original paper that they were meant to do. I don't know weather this year it's just a rumour but many seem to be convinced it's true, i for one hope its not.

Im not entirely sure but i believe they are maths papers with incredible difficultttyyyy... people usually seem to do them after they have attempted all the normal past papers for extra "practice ".. but stuff on them isnt likely to come up at all i think. I may be completely wrong though for i have never tried them before.

Ahh rightt, just to prepare you maybe if they were going to throw something overly difficult youd probably know how to solve it without trouble perhaps... Ive no idea tbh. Hm.... why called solomon papers? according to a quick search rn apparently a publisher called solomon press sold pretend papers bc there were no real past papers at the time, specificatioms were new apparently. Lol, I have no idea.
