    I think the most helpful way to succeed in Maths is by repeatedly doing past papers as it helps you gain an understanding of exam type questions and the level of difficulty of the questions too!

    Can anyone help me understand how you work questions like this out please? I know it's to do with the straight line stuff in medians,perpendicular bisectors and altitudes etc but I have no idea how to get started

    You have the equation of the other diagonal. The two diagonals will intersect at 90 degrees or be perpendicular to one another hence they (their gradients) will be negative reciprocals of one another.

    okay so is the gradient -1/3

    Yes. You also have the point P, so you can use y-y1 = -1/3 (x-x1) to get the equation of the line where (x1, y1) is the point P.

    You have the gradient of PR and you have on point lying on the line PR, namely, P - can you combine this to find the equation of PR?

    do you use the equation y-b=m(x-a)

    Yes... that is literally what I said above. Except with b=y1 and a=x1.
