Have you done question 9ii on the June 2011 paper (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/62239-question-paper-unit-4721-core-mathematics-1.pdf)? I have no idea how to do it, even after drawing a diagram.

That looks really weird. I have no idea, sorry. Does anyone else have any thoughts? Maybe you have to use a circle theorem, but I don't know which one.

How do you know the points make a semi-circle?

If a right-angled triangle is inscribed within a circle, then the hypotenuse of the triangle goes through the centre... so you get a semicircle with the triangle inscribed inside it...

So as long as there is a triangle with a right angle in the circle, then the two vertices without the right angle make the diameter?

Yes.

Yes.

Ok thanks. Do you know how many circle theorems we need to know for Core 1?

I don't, but they should be common knowledge at this level.

Resitting it this year after getting a C, it's so easy but the newer exams are not tough compared to 2nd year but throw a lot of curve balls let's say so make sure you really know your stuff and focus on later papers & Solomon papers on physics and maths tutor.

You should also try the delphis papers
