# AQA L2 Further Maths Questions Watch

1. Did anyone know how to work out the final question for the AQA Further Maths Paper 1 today? It's driving me insane! I know it's to do with the cosine rule.

Thanks

You had to put the numbers from the diagram into the cosine rule to eventually get 3n=w, meaning the two sides were the same length, so the triangle was isosceles.

I tried that :/ and got: w^2 - 2wn + 5n^2
I know it doesn't really matter and it's only 4 marks but it's annoying me!
