ok, from talking about alevels in my last thread back to gcse's...

I've got 2 real mock exams this week and if I pass it means after christmas I can drop maths and use those periods to focus on something else.. I just need to get a C...

I have been doing loads of revision, been doing fine in my math lessons, but when I do practice papers I can't get a C, I always get a D! Every single maths paper I do I get a D, I have never passed in my life!

And to make matters worse i lose out on ALL my maths lessons next week because we have mocks that week aswell -.-

so basicly, what i'm trying to ask is, is there any other revision techniques for maths I could try? I've done loads of practice papers, written notes, made revision cards, got a podcast thing from my teacher I'm going to do in a minute, read through my CGP textbook... I'll probably read thorugh my maths exercise books to..

But is there ANYTHING else I can do?! I had till Tuesday for my non-calc and Friday till my calc... Any suggestions would be amazing atm

0 ·The Mix Honorary GuruSimultaneous Equations: E.g.

4x - y = 2

y = 2x + 1

What is: X =

Y =

and then,

Work Out 64 1/2

Write your answer as fraction

and another thing is...

Solve 4x + 2 > 3x - 19

Other stuff is at the back of the practice paper with like triangle angles and some weird graphs, but i haven't been taught that because it's A grade and stuff, we've only been taught upto B.

Thanks for the help

0 ·The Mix Honorary Guru1) 4x - y = 2

2) y = 2x + 1

You want to make y the subject on both sides, so...

add y to 1)..... 4x = 2 + y

then subtract 2 .... 4x - 2 = y

Now your two equations are y = 4x - 2 and y = 2x + 1

so..... 4x - 2 = 2x +1

add 2 ....... 4x = 2x + 3

take 2x ..... 2x = 3

divide by 2 ...... x = 1.5

now substitute x for 1.5 ... so, y = 2(1.5) + 1 and therefore y = 4

check it. 4(1.5) - 4 = 2 .... this is right, so x=1.5 and y=4

0 ·The Mix Honorary GuruWrite your answer as fraction

multiply 64 by two. ...128

add 1 to 128 = 129

therefore it is 129/2

if you want a formula, n x/y = (ny+x)/y

I'm not sure I've explained this very well but I think it's what you're asking.

0 ·The Mix Honorary Guruadd 19 to both sides ..... 4x + 21 > 3x

subtract 3x ....... x + 21 > 0

subtract 21 .................. x > -21

this means that x could be -20.99999999, -20, -19 etc

0 ·The Mix Honorary GuruIt's still a bit fuzzy but thats probably 'cos I've had a veeeeeery long day,

but i'll look at it again in the morning and takes notes and hopefully it should make sence.. Thank you!!!
