if u seriously find it hard then go to ur teacher and tell him/her u dont understand he cud give u extra lessons or help u after the lesson. you wont learn anything by just getting the answers.
But it is strange how you say there A* gcse questions when there quite easy and if they were A* type they would be harder ques. and if ur doing gcse maths. u shud know the answers or have a little clue about what the answer could be as you should of done that kind of maths when in the 3rd and 4th form. (yr 9 and 10)
This post is just getting funnier and funnier! Now people are beliving 5y=15 is an A* maths question LOLOLOL

I cant believe you managed so many stages. An educated monkey could have understood it in a single step.
yes, but an educated monkey could technically do PhD level maths
3. I Did It Much Simpler Without Explanation Before.
But The Person Said He Didnt Understand It.

I Did: 180 = 120 + Angle C
Therefore: 180 - 120 = C
Therefore: Angle C = 60 Degrees
"as All 3 Angles In A Triangle Adds Up To 180 Degrees)

But He Didnt Understand It.
4. well i found doing such a question not that easy altho i do sort of undwerstand it now.i fort it was A* as the teacher sed we shud go for top grades altho i dont no if that is applicable for the fouondation. thanx any way

Maths is a hard subject by the way. I dread to think what PHD Level maths is like. Imagine how hard it would be.

a the moment i am doing P1, and to be honest i think its fairly easiesh. is this how one is supposed to find P1, coz i can do virtually all our homework sections. we have virtually finsihed P1, and we did Differentian, further differentiation and Trigonometry aswell, and that was the hardest bit of P1. yet even those sections were alright. the rest was pretty easy.

i was just saying that an educated monkey could technically do degree level maths, it depends on how far it had been educated.
7. i am doin stats i did s1 in 1 lesson!!!!!easy or wot. i found the pmcc abit tricky tho
8. elpaw, what gcse grades did you get mate? what about a-levels?
9. i never said that i thought it was an a* question cos its obvioulsy not!!
10. 9A* 4A 1B gcse

1A as

4A 1B alev

Well, The Sentence:

All Angles In A Triangle Add Up To 180 Degrees Is Where The 180 Came From.

180 Degrees (all 3 Angles In Traingle) = (angle 1 ) + (angle 2) + (angle 3)

We Know 2 Angles. It Said A = 60, And B = 60

Therefore: 180 Degrees = 60 + 60 + Angle C
180 Degrees = 120 Degrees + C
We Need To Find Angle C, Therefore We Bring The 120 Degrees From The Right Side To The Left. Whenever We Reverse Something, I.e.) Swap The Side Its On, We Need To Reverse The Sign Infront Of The Value.

Therefore: 180 - 120 = Angle C
Which Solves: 60 Degrees = C

Understand. Or, If You Dont Get This "bringing The 120 From The Right Side To The Left Side", Then:

What Number Adds To 120 To Make Up 180.

Well Obviously Its 60, Therefore Angle C = 60 Degrees

Thanks man. I appreciate your help even if some other member don't. Respect 2ya homeboy.

My teacher claims you don't have to be anything special to do an Oxbridge maths degree.

As for maths being a hard A-level, I don't agree. I think it is just hard to learn if you don't have natural talent, just like english language. You can either do maths or you can't.

I agree with ya Harry. Maths is the easiest of my subjects because Im natually talented at maths.

no really I need help. Just because your good at Maths and can do questions really easily, doesn't mean everyone else in the world is! We all have our own strengths and weaknesses, and my weakest subject is maths. Therefore something you find "piss easy", I could find very hard!
But you didn't ask the question in the first place, Chuck D, unless you have also registered as Mr.Smith! If you're going to mess about at least get your names right.
16. Hi,

What you have to do is divide y by 5.

That means that you will just be left with y.

(/5) y=3
