    Hey guys, I decided to do some past paper practice for maths since it's one of my weakest subjects, but I stumbled across this question that I simply do not know how to do.

    Can anyone help me? I greatly appreciate it.

    What you need to do is sub in q and p into both equations as you would do and then you end up with q= N/p and and q=kp. Therefore, N/p must equal kp so N/p=kp. Then rearrange to get p squared = N/k and then p= the square root of N/k. The rest is quite simple, as you know that q=kp you sub in p to find q...
