    Do any of you know all the "extra" formulas needed?

    Not the ones on the front, I need more formulas like:

    Area of a parallelogram
    Volume of pyramid

    things like that

    parallelogram is base times height
    pyramid volume is length by width by height divided by 3. basically working out volume of a cube but divide by 3 at the end,

    If anyone is in need of help in some last minute revision for the maths exam post your questions here and I'll try my best to help. I got an A* this November so want to try and help anyone if I can. Good Luck with the exam everyone!
    Wow congrats on your A*!

    I'm getting really confused with algebraic fractions such as this (sorry for bad quality)

    could you help me solve it?
    I'm really sorry I've never been able to understand them, they were always my worst topic. I found this video which I hope can help you though -http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea48eQ4GeJg. Good Luck in your exam!

    Could you explain how to find a perpendicular line from a given line equation or co-ordinates please if that makes sense? I'm really not sure on it at alllll 😂
    Take the lines gradient as m, a perpendicular line will have the gradient - 1/m. If I specifies that it passes through a certain point, make sure you use that as the c in the equation. Does this make sense, I'll look for a video to help you too if it doesn't. Good luck in the exam.

    When they are the same with different scale factor.

    e.g. show that MN is parallel to XY

    blah blah...

    MN = 2/3(a+b)
    XY= a+b

    therefore they are parallel.

    Not the ones on the front, I need more formulas like:

    Area of a parallelogram
    Volume of pyramid

    things like that
    Area of a cuboid is one; basexheightxlength
    Volume of a cylinder is one too;
    Base(pie r^2) X height
    Surface area of a cylinder;
    2pie r^2 + 2pie r x height

    Also remember that the formula for the curved surface area of a cone is given not the total. To work out the total do curved surface area X area of base

    Think that's all, might want to check just incase. Good Luck!

    Sorry it's a little unclear. It's quite hard to explain this, does this example help?

    I think by θ, he means how many degrees the sector is
    Yes I meant theta, the angle in a sector. Area of a sector is that theta angle divided by 360 x πr^2

    For the arc length, theta angle divided by 360 x πd

    I struggle with this kind of stuff mainly

    Algebraic Proof
    Harder Vectors Qs
    Surds
    Congruent Proof
    Similar Shapes
    Proof is hard to explain over typing, this short video may help.. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DxODoNGetVY
    With vectors the basic rule to remember is if the are multiples they're parallel, and if they're multiples and share a common point it's a straight line. Sometimes it can be very hit or miss with the complicated problems but providing you remember those rules you can give it a good go.
    Surds again can be very hit or miss, but this short video should outline the basic principle - http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Aq8FavvjSII - and a video is probably easier to understand that if I was to try and type out an explanation.
    Congruent triangles, make sure you remeber the four rules of what needs to be equal to be congruent.
    SSS (three side)
    AAS (two angles and corresponding side)
    SAS (two sides and included angle)
    RHS (right angle, hypotenuse, side)
    For similar shapes know these rules and you'll be fine...
    (K being the scale factor)
    Length - times by K
    Surface area - times by K^2
    Volume - time by K^3

    Hope this has helped. Good Luck in the exam 😊

    Ummm, the expressions for volume and area like the pi ones, cuz I wanaa make sure I know 'em properly, thanks very much! & That's the last thing, hopefully!
    go on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z4SUypJZxo its a bit annoying but trust me itll stay in your head i heard this once in yr 7 and i still remember it helps with circles and pi
