    I split it to a rectangle and triangle then used pythagoras to find the top.

    I think they were similar and different in many ways. June was more about formulae and November was a lot of arithmetic. I would say that paper 2 was easier in Nov and paper 1 was about the same (Except for Hannah's sweets).

    It is harder to set the grade boundaries for November because the spread of data is not as wide. You will find more people at grade D/C/B level and not too many at A*/A grades. Therefore, it is almost impossible to predict the grade boundaries.

    Yeah I did that too. I did sin which gave me the opposite for the other triangle and you had to work out the adjacent, so i used tan
    (Original post by ad4m)
    I used tan and then sin i think. You had to find the length of one by using tan and x it by 2 because it met the centre of the circle. Then use sin to find the other length. I got 2. something I can't remember exactly.

    Area of a scalene triangle formula and the cosine rule. I think 11% will be fine.
    I did cosine rule and got 34.7 I think I put the numbers incorrectly in the calculator.

    Q25: There are 18 fruit sweets.
    There are 7 aniseed.
    There are 5 mint.

    What is the probability of picking 2 different sweets?

    Fruit - 18/30 x 12/29 (any other sweet)
    Aniseed - 7/30 x 23/29 (any other sweet)
    Mint - 5/30 x 25/29 (any other sweet)

    Fruit - 216/870
    Aniseed - 161/870
    Mint - 125/870

    216 + 161 + 125 = 502
    502 / 870

    You can simplify this to 251/435

    For question 15 did you have to use sohcahtoa? And then make an additional right angle triangle, to give u the full length of the side of the triangle on the circle. My answer was 2-Something, so would i get method marks?
    Sounds right.

    Q20: Watch A was 100% plastic
    Watch B was 340° plastic and 20° metal.

    Cost is in ratio 3:2 for metal and plastic.

    360 x 2 = 720
    340 x 2 = 680
    20 x 3 = 60
    680 + 60 = 740

    740 / 20 = 37
    720 / 20 = 36

    So ratio is 36:37.

    It was a pretty easy question, but I like many others fell into the trap of working out the area of the sector/circles. But it was only 4 marks.
