    Yeah, I was confused whether it was saying that her parents would pay for everything or whether they were not well payed which in this case is (ii) --that's what I put :/ and the last page was not too bad.... but overall it wasn't as hard as last year's
    They were going to help pay. What you put is right, as their small earnings were mentioned.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be a constructions question on Maths today. There hasn't been one for the past two years!

    YEAH, can people please help me for q18 !!
    Just remember that triangles AOD, DOC, and COE are isosceles triangles.
    Now everything is easy! Lets Assume angle DCO = y

    So,
    y=2x (Exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two opposite angles)
    Now we look at triangle DOC. We can take Angle DOC as y as well. (Isosceles triangle so two angles are equal)
    Now we can form another equation.
    y=69-x
    Now equate the two equations,
    so 69-x=2x
    3x=69
    x= 23.

    This is just one way of solving the sum, but there are so many other methods, such as solving by finding angles DAO (which is 55.5).

    Hope this helped, and Good Luck for today's Paper !
    I hope its not very tough.

    Pls explain the way of solving it via finding 55.5 as DAO

    It's not 3 months one because they said he found his job monotonous at 3 months then after 1 month he left the job.. So that's 4 months not 3

    Well actually you can't do much with that 55.5. This method is way more longer and confusing but as you asked it ill show it.

    We anyways need y as DCO. And y=2x.
    This also means now ODC is also = 2x.

    Now this is where things get confusing. Ill put in the best way i can.
    We want angle DOC,
    we can put this as 180-(69+x)
    it is also 180-4x when you look at it from the other Point of View,
    Now we write this for the supplementary angle's view.
    69+180-x+4x= 180
    so we come back to the original equation now, 69=3x, so
    x=23.
