can you please show the working out please? ðŸ˜€

2. I’ve got the answers ok but there’s got to be a much easier way to get C than how I’ve done it! It ended on more than 2 pages ! ðŸ™‚

3. Great problem! I got the answers above but I know you try and design these problems offering as little information as possible – I didn’t assume FG was parallel to AB and didn’t use F to find the coordinate of G. Do you actually need to include F or am I being nasty?
Love the problems – am using them with higher ability Y10s at moment and putting them into my planning for top set y11 next year to try to give them that depth of understanding that may serve them well if they come across Hannah’s Sweets type problem (though I thought the later on concerning the grain container was much more challenging!!).
Thanks again and keep up to good work – it is really appreciated

• If you don’t use F there’s only really one way to solve it. If you use F there are many ways
