For the trigonometry question with the triangle split into two, and you had to find x? What was it? I got like 30 decimal, think its wrong
I messed that up I used cosine to find angle of top triangle then was gonna minus it from 180 but it gave me like 126 then I minused from 180 and it was like 52 I tried soh cah Toa and i got a minus... just couldn't do it

Yes I did. For the one above that with like
3-x / a quadratic equation thing, did anyone get
1 / -3x-4
??? xx
i got that lol

The last answer was about 80.4 - angle B was 40 degrees but the question asked for angle A. It was part of the working out though so you might get a few marks for that.
That's good; I'd be happy with that. I was unfortunately running out of time by that question.
4. Did the guy driving to work spend something around £40

I got fed up with the huge 5 mark questions so actually started working from the back lol
6. I worked out angle C and angle B, but didn't RTFQ (read the full question), so I think we would have got 4? 2 marks per angle, I'm not sure.

I got that: I think it was like 30.1 or something like that

the answer for that triangle one was 30.1. you had to use TOA.

Omg I tried but it gave me a negative ugh

Wasn't it sine? not tan. IIRC they gave you the hypotenuse.
15. Need that Mr Kibria guy (idk how to spell it sorry) to post the worked solutions lol

I though that too but I revised that topic be4 the exam and it used TOA for a question that was very similar
