    Need help:
    Am I doing it right?

    I did the quadratic equations and got X=-11.5/12 and used the latter and subsituted and used alternate segment theorem and stuff:

    Where did you get this question from. Have you go anymore circle theorem proof questions? I need to learn these.

    Actually it wasn't too bad. Yes, nearly there. If ADX is a straight, then the supplementary angles CDA and CDX must sum to 180 degrees. As you have solved for the values of x and y correctly, all you need to do now is to show that CDA + CDX = 180 degrees.

    (y² -15y +90) + (x² -70) = 180 degrees.

    Also I think this question would be a QWC (Quality of Written Communication) meaning you would have you give reasons each step of the way.

    I got it from a 'Grade 9' tough paper.

    Thanks a lot! I didn't put a lot of reasons as I quickly had to do it on Paint.

    So it'll look like this - would that get me all six marks? http://i.imgur.com/Pe1gDDc.png

    Also, what grade would this be - as it's very hard even for the New GCSE standard
