Back

First calculate the exterior angle of an hexagon.

A hexagon has six sides.

All exterior angles on a regular shape are equal.

360o ÷ 6 = 60o

Exterior and interior angles lie on a straight line so

Interior angle = 180o – 60o = 120o

Explain why David must be wrong.

Use estimation to find an approximate answer

Round each number to one significant figure

400 x 10 = 4000

The answer is approximately 4000 so cannot possibly be 438.15

Back

Formula method: hexagon.

Distance = speed x time

75 = speed x 1.5

75 = speed

Speed = 50mph

Scaling method:

25 miles in half an hour

50 miles in one hour

The area of the triangle below is 12cm2. Find the height of the triangle.

The formula for the area of a triangle is

base x height

2. Find the size of the interior and exterior angles of a regular decagon.

The sum of exterior angles is 360o

In a regular shape the exterior angles are all equal

A decagon has ten sides

Therefore,

exterior angle = 360 ÷ 10 = 36o

The interior and exterior angles lie on a straight line

Therefore

interior angle = 180 = 36 = 144o

We need to end up with either x = ... or ... = x

To get the x’s on their own we get rid of the +2 by subtracting two from each side:

y – 2 = 5x

Now we need to divide both sides by 5

y – 2 = x

Find a number that is a factor of both numbers, then divide each number by the factor.

The easiest number to start with here is 1000, since this will cancel all of the zeros when we divide.
