    That's quite a low percentage, so you'll do it! And it's only statistics anyway!

    Yep, I have at least 15% right?

    So should need 75% more from 80%

    ok, so we get a question like:


    we use the identity sin/cos=tan
    sin theta/cos theta = 3/4
    tan theta = 3/4

    you type tan^-1(3/4) onto your calculator for the principal value. Sketch a graph and using the graph's symmetry you can work out the other values within the region.

    Do you know what the graphs look like?
    Yes, I do. Thank you very much

    (Original post by NoMathsPlease)
    It is to do with a graph. Sin is positive in the first region (where you leave the angle as the found acute one) and the second (180-acute gives answer). Tan is positive in the first and third (180+acute angle) and cos in first and final (360-acute). Look up the trig graph as it will probably help to make sense of what I just said.

    If the angle required is negative, then you go to the regions where it is negative, eg region 3 and 4 for sin.

    Hope this helps you. I have a slightly inappropriate method of remembering the order I can PM you if you want
    The regions are the 0 to 90, 90 to 180 etc. right?
    Thank you and that PM would be great

    That's just stupid! The school cares more about sucking up to OFSTED than your grades. How much I detest this system is beyond words!



    Well done! why do you think statistics was marked wrong? Aside from the obvious fact that you could never get such a low grade if you tried!
    ikr they are pricks

    To contrast, my school was told by OFSTED to pick up their **** with MFL.

    Look how that turned out
