# C3 trig watch

1. http://pmt.physicsandmathstutor.com/...%20Edexcel.pdf

I hate it simply because it's bs. Everytime they'll give me another way to do it which gives the right answer. Everytime they'll do it and i can do the way they do it yet i can't think of they way they do it myself. Everytime they do something bs and i think to myself there's 50 million dam things you could do which are all valid and this is the way to do it ._____________.

Every dam time
q7a
here's where i got up to

then i got stuck

then suddenly the mark scheme decides to multiply by 2. Tf mark scheme, Why doesn't it just multiply by 4. Why can't i think of ****ing multiplying by the dam number 2. It's just pathetic and i've done all the stupid jan c3 edexcel papers and still i can't do trig.

help me die pls
i dun wanna live anymore

Edit: or y'know what they could just leave it as that's fine too why not do that? .-----.

I would've noticed the similarity between the denominator and the Identity and then worked from there.
Identities do take a while to get used to though, so don't worry if you can't 'spot' it straight away at the moment.

I'd recommend looking at some questions in here

Firstly, calm down. It's not that deep, it's just maths.

Note the following:

I wouldn't send him there bro.

If he's on the verge of killing himself, I don't think TeeEm's questions will make him feel any better...

Technically, you got the answer right since . So, I don't think you'd lose marks...

Probably because you don't know the identities well enough - it's not the exam paper's fault.

For C3 you need to know the double angle identities off by heart so you can spot things like is similar to .

Complain to Edexcel or something.

Edit: On a more serious note though, just get some more practice with these types of questions if you struggle. TeeEM has a load of booklets which he has written solutions for!
