    hi I'm just a bit stuck on understanding the June 2008 aea question 7b on angle bisectors. I tried to use the angle bisector theorem but that didn't lead me to the right answer so could anyone point out where I went wrong. I used the able bisector theorem on CA giving me 2/5CA + OC giving X . Then I subtracted OB from OX but somehow it wasn't right could anyone help?

    try this link

    sorry to bother you teeem. When will the special papers be up
    I will start writing those this summer so the first few will be in my site by end of July ... (I hope)
    I think I will write paper then its solution, rather than all the papers then the solutions.
    I will also try to write some mechanics all the way to M6 (although it no longer exists for pure practice)

    My to do list is getting longer by the day.

    Here are some typical questions, characteristic of my style.
    (can you guess what is the main feature of my style?)

    Note this is not a sample paper, just the type of questions in these papers.

    EDIT: corrected version 2 added

    How difficult are these questions?

    Do you suppose you could upload some solutions to those questions, TeeEm? That would be very useful.

    these are typical sample questions.
    they are not meant to be a balanced paper.

    When I write the actual papers I will be writing their solutions.

    At the moment I have a million other thing to write/prepare/produce ...

    some of the Heavyweights which frequent the forum could write them.
