    Hints for first question:

    (a) Use Pythagora's theorem
    (b) Cos(x) = adjacent / hypotenuse
    (c) Degrees in a circle: 360
    (d) AO = BO = 7, use answer to (c) and cosine rule

    a) Think pythagoras. You have a triangle with 2 known lengths.
    b) Think SOHCAHTOA.
    c) A, B, and C are equally spaced across the circumference of the circle, as stated in the question.
    d) Using part c), and the fact that the radius of the circle is 7, you can find AB using the cosine rule.
    e) Repeat part d), except now you have 3 sides, and need an angle.

    ii)
    a) Again, pythagoras.
    b) Cosine rule. You have 3 sides.
    c) You have 2 smaller rectangles, and 4 larger. You need to work out the length AB (= DC, EF, HG).
    d) I can't really visualise the shape, but I think it's just the cuboid cut in half. Maybe not though.
