Unit 4 Q3 Three Figure Bearrings

Postby Dededonna » Tue Mar 05, 2013 11:53 am

Hi I'm currently working through materials for maths GCSEE equivalence and I have finished most of it but Q3 is stopping me from doing my assessment :( I had bought a cheap mathematical set and thought it was the protractor so went and bought a well known one (Helix) but still the examples don't add up and I'm getting different answers, I have also watched tutorial videos to see if I'm measuring right! Is it me or has anyone else had this problem??

I've had it checked by my daughters math teacher and she said the questions are examples and therefore don't need to be accurate but the easiest way to work it out is to remember that from north to north is 360 so just take the number away from that and you have your answer! :/

It should say something like not drawn accurately to scale.

Hi,

As a general guide. If you are required to actually measure using the diagram this will be clearly stated in the question. Otherwise you should just use the given information to deduce the answers.

Hope this helps,

Yvonne
