    Mark scheme
    Attachment 552706552708
    I don't understand why there is only 1 letter (k) to be multiplied into the direction vector of Line 2, am I not supposed to multiply it by (xi, yj, zk) with 3 letters instead of one?

    I have done everything right in this question except for part (e), I did it the hard way by using the sine rule. The easier way suggested by the mark scheme says AD=2AB, but not sure where that comes from.

    Greatly appreciated if anyone can help me with these questions!! THANKS!

    The questions come from Specimen paper and June 2015 (C34) if anyone's wondering
