    Best advice i could give DO PAST PAPERS its the best way to get better a maths. Any topics you dont get use sites like mathswatch.
    I agree with this.As this is what I did and I went from a C in year 10 to an A* in year 11. Mathswatch is a godsend from heaven and I owe my A* to it

    Well look at what part b is asking for. You first need to find the area of the triangle before applying a certain percentage.

    Second line doesn't make sense. Try again. Expand the brackets.

    The  2 - 2 \sqrt5 is not correct, because  2 \times -2\sqrt5 = -4\sqrt5 , not  2 - 2\sqrt5

     (2 + \sqrt5)(9-2\sqrt5) = (2\times9)+(2\times-2\sqrt5)+(9\times\sqrt5)+(\sqrt5  \times-2\sqrt5) = 18 -4\sqrt5 + 9\sqrt5 - 10

    Now you need to collect like terms.

    Do I not multiply them?

    What do you mean like terms? Do I add all the surds up from each bracket?
