1. I got 80.1 too, i am sure i got that right
2. (Original post by macohe)
i got 3.7
I was strongly debating between 3.7 and 3.8, but went for 3.8 because 3.75 was still too low, meaning that it was 3.8.
3. its 3.8 ffs. get a hold of yourself

Oh f**k, I got 47.5! How did you get that? I used 1/2absinc, cosine rule and then sine rule - and triple checked it
They were all the right steps lol you must have included a wrong angle or side somewhere coz it was defo 80.4 degrees....but if you did all those steps then you'll certainly get good method marks!

Wasn't the last question like 1/2 * 7 * 8 Sin(X) = 18

56Sin(x) = 36

Sin^-1(36/56) = X

x = 40

???

I think I did it wrong then.
yah i did that ish
16. trial and improvement was 3.8, get over it
17. i got 3.8 too!
19. You are wrong. The trial and improvement was 3.7. I checked many times with my friends, myself and my teachers

I was strongly debating between 3.7 and 3.8, but went for 3.8 because 3.75 was still too low, meaning that it was 3.8.
3.7^3 - 5(3.7) = 32.153
34 - 32.153 = 1.847
So 3.7 is 1.847 away.

3.8^3 - 5(3.8) = 35.872
35.872 - 34 = 1.872
So 3.8 is 1.872 away.

This shows 3.8 being 0.025 further away than 3.7. 3.7 is closer. This is why i put 3.7, but idk, people are getting rather rowdy at me for putting this idea forward xD
