    It depends if they've given co-ordinates or a condition that follows the integral that enables you to substitute in numbers to work it out.

    Well you can only do that if (0,0) is a valid point?

    First you need the inequality that Mr Browns investment > Mrs White investment. Then you log both sides - it doesn't matter which base, but I did it to base 10 because its less writing then you used the log law that log(xy) = log x + log y on both sides of the inequality. Then bring the power of T down on both sides log y^T = Tlog y, get the logs with T on one side of the inequality, the logs without of the other side, and then the log law log a - log b = log a/b T can now be taken out of one side as it a factor so you'll have T log(...) > log a/b divide both sides so you get T on its own, T > log(...)/log(a/b) put it in the calculator, and et voila.

    Sorry if its a bit long winded/ confusing!

    I'm not making a big fuss about it, I'm just saying I messed up on the paper because firstly I made a few silly mistakes and secondly I wasn't taught a couple of things properly and they popped up which meant I dropped even more marks...

    , and I was referring to a general fuss. Hopefully C4 won't be too bad .

    Draw a triangle and use soh cah toa on it. You have values of two of the sides, then use Pythagoras for the other side. The angle can then be worked out.

    For pt b, you use the same method, but as it is obese, you have to do 180/pi - answer because using inverse trig to find the angle will only give you the acute angle.

    Pt c is using the double angle formula from your other answers.
