Hi everyone, Tommorow I have OCR MEI P1 exam.

Its a bit of a joke to be honest :| I have no books and didn't get any lessons either because i am not doing it in school and had been planning to teach myself. Anyway the exams tommorow and I know yadidda I should have done it earlier but please can you help me, I am pretty intelligent and reckon if I have some equations I will be able to blitz the paper.

Ok so enough about me!

Which equations do we need to know

I know already from years ago - Cosine rule , sine rule, circles equations and areas, i also know the quadratic formula to calculate x^2 x and number...

Are there any more? Many thanks and if you help you will surely help me to ace this exam. Thanks again.

I have a few past papers and have never seen them on the exam? I think maybe you are refering to regular OCR maths, I am doing MEI (no idea what the difference is - that doesn't matter) as far as i know those circle theorems aren't part of our exam hope not anyway!!

Thanks for your reply but does anyone know any other forumalae we need to know?

Not prisms (hope not anyway! )

oh yeah the old y= mx +c and
