    Revision for Standard Grades and need Help

    I am revising with past papers for the 2009 Standard Grade Credit Maths. Would appreciate some help with the following past paper example.

    Solve algebraically the equation

    5 cos xo + 4=0, 0 ≤ x ≤ 360

    If anyone knows where I would be able to obtain Standard Grade Credit past paper exemplar answers (that show working not just the end result) would much appreciate if you could let me know

    I have only got around 2 months left to exam time and need all the help I can get

    Thanks in anticipation

    According to the wording of your question the argument of the cos-function is in degrees.

    5\cos(x)+4=0~\implies~\cos(x)=-\dfrac45~\implies~x\approx 143.13^\circ\vee x\approx360^\circ-143.13^\circ\approx 216.87^\circ

    Goto Maths -> Standard Grade -> Exam Solutions at the following:

    Invergordon Academy - Maths Resources

    Hope that's of some use to you. Good luck with your Maths! (and the rest of your Standard Grades - hope you do Higher Maths by the way, it's rather fun )
