    a) the midpoint of AB is where D is, so just use the formula [(x1+x2)/2, (y1+y2)/2]
    then to find the gradient simply it is the (difference in y/difference in x)
    then to find the gradient of PQ you do the negative reciprocal of the gradient you just worked out because PQ is the normal of AB
    then use your point D and gradient of PQ to work out the equation using the formula y-y1=m(x-x1)

    b) the equation of RS is really simple, E is the midpoint of RS and there is no slope of RS, so you just need to find the middle X coordinate of the RS.

    Thanks, but what do I do for c, d and e?

    They are the hardest,

    c) equate the two equations you've just worked out to get the coordinates of the centre
    d) you've got the centre you just need the radius, which you can work out using Pythagoras between the centre and any of the points on the circle
    then all you've got to do is sub the centre coordinates in as well as the radius length into the circle equation

    Look above, and I can't see what E is

    That makes it clearer, but you couldn't actually give me some answers to work towards could you? It's just the answers I have got clearly aren't right. For c I got X to be 0.214 which surely isn't right?

    I got a and b right I think, but can you show me c and d? I would love you forever

    Since RS is a vertical line, the x coordinate of F is the same as the x coordinate of E, which can easily be found by taking the mean of the x values at B and C. You find y by substituting the value of x into the equation for PQ.

    James can you answer it for me, then I'll know how to do the other questions as I can use your example. Otherwise I might cry

    First 3 parts, doing part d now.

    EDIT: TSR is weird. I took a vertical photo but it's been turned horizontal on upload :/

    I don't think I can give you the answer on forums...

    Watch a few of these videos to help you out! (the coordinate geometry ones obviously!)
