It's quite a steep graph at approaching 90 degrees; can't accurately place the y value at all myself except to say that it's probably between 0.2 and 0.4

Highly doubtful they'd be asking GCSE pupils to perform SOHCAHTOA calculations in their heads, unless things have radically changed since I was at school

Take away 2 from 3, that leaves me,
I'll leave you running wet just like the sea,
If there's a door give me the key,
I'll push it in, twist it around and run free,
Mmmm

## 7/7

pretty simple

the scaling on that 2nd question is massively misleading mind you

## Needed to do workings out

too much effort

## nah

everything on there could be done mentally - it was multiple choice ffs

## you can draw a cosine graph in your head?

It's quite a steep graph at approaching 90 degrees; can't accurately place the y value at all myself except to say that it's probably between 0.2 and 0.4

## 0.309

Should have gone with my instinct :P

## Balls: there was a workings sheet provided

Highly doubtful they'd be asking GCSE pupils to perform SOHCAHTOA calculations in their heads, unless things have radically changed since I was at school

Multiple choice doesn't mean mental arithmatic

## *shudder*

## gcse maths includes knowing what a ten sided shape is called? really?

## at the lowest level: yes

## i'm quite surprised by that

## got as far as knowing adj/hyp = cos 72 and then couldn't be fucked looking for a calculator

I'm really good at maths, gonna assign myself an honorary 7/7

## adj/3.4 = cos 72, even

## This has told me that my Android calculator in scientific mode uses Radians not degrees.

## tan, not cos, surely?

## No, you're right

## that's an ownness-level fail, sorry

## I hadn't seen the question when I typed that.

I got confused by you getting confused between adj/hyp and adj/3.4.

## 7/7, because I'm not a THICKO

^autofill

## I had to do GCSE maths for my Access Course this year

None of it was as awkward as this, I call bullshit.

## 10/10

## same as meths

## Question 2's a bit cheeky

The angle in the diagram is nothing like 72 degrees!

## look, I've done my GCSEs and I got a C in maths

and now I can forget about maths forever ok.

## but the TV price question!

That's good stuff.

## can I use a calculator?

## Just wrote it down

Old skool style

## yes

## 7/7,

had to use a calculator and notepad though.

## Definitely need a calculator for Q2

Unless you have access to Trig tables OR have them memorised. GCSE pupils would have their scientific calculators

## 6/7

Never could do triangle math

## 7/7

I knew that maths degree would come in handy for something one day.

## ^one outsmarted a salesman in Dixons

## *once

waay

## ^dreading the English test tomorrow.

## the ownness is on me to brush up on my spelling before then

## 7/7

That was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

## 6/7

completely forgot all my triangle maths stuff

## dunno why but "triangle maths" is making me laugh a lot

## I got bored reading question two and gave up.

Can't wait for the BBC Magazine's English exam where I get to write a diary from the viewpoint of Romeo. THAT'S where I shine.

Take away 2 from 3, that leaves me,

I'll leave you running wet just like the sea,

If there's a door give me the key,

I'll push it in, twist it around and run free,

Mmmm

## shut up maths

## 7/7

Good recovery from my 3 in the science one.

## they've got the vat rate wrong

this nation's going to the dogs

## I tried really hard

and I'm not ashamed to say 4 out of 7.

## still better than I did at the science one

## 7/7

copied Marckee's answers

## 7/7

Just as well as I teach it for a living...

## Gave up after the second question.

Was reading a book about complex analysis today FOR FUN, so this sort of thing can go hang.
