    Hi,
    im a tad confused on question 8 (iii) and (iv)
    https://983c9f06eb1f75af6e83364e092b...20C4%20OCR.pdf

    For 8 (ii) is it sufficient to find a value that i can multiply the direction vector of the equaition through a and the mid-point of BD that will give a vector equal to the position vector of C?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean (iii) instead of (ii)?

    Your method sounds okay but you may want to post your working so we can check it.

    Ignore the coordinates and try to draw a 2-d sketch of ABCD using only the information given in parts (i), (ii) and (iii).

    Please post a photo of this if you've done it and are still stuck.
