    1) I managed to get all the other vector questions correct but I can't seem to do the last vector question which involves finding the vector P closest to the origin.

    For question 2), use A = x and B = 1, and solve from there. Use the formulas for cosh and sinh to work out what cosh(1) and sinh(1) are.

    I can't remember how you'd solve question 1), I think it's just some result that you have to memorise, have a look through your textbook.

    Got question 2, thanks

    I did have a look in the textbook for the vector question but there's nothing there :/

    Ok, find the plane that is perpendicular to l, and includes the origin. Then find the point at which l crosses the plane, and that's your P.

    I think I've got the answer to the vector question now! But would you mind spotting where I got part e correct? I got the other answers right but not this one :/

    Ah I see what you've done, thank you! If I could rep you again I definitely would

    Do you have any advice on how to get better at questions like those? You seem to be really good at it

    Practise a lot. Learn key formulas like the quadratic formula and the trig formulas. Just try and stay calm during questions/exams - you know the content, so you have the knowledge required to answer all the questions. The brain has a tendency to take shortcuts when stressed, so useful long term memory facts are often ignored in situations of high stress.
