Re: Mensuration

Hi;

Can I see your working for M #57, if it is not too much trouble?

Re: Mensuration

Thanks ganesh for these questions. Can you believe my mates at school couldn't solve them even when I said they should try? I need more of these.
Solution for 59 please.  I like to have the answers, solve and compare with yours. Many thanks.
Btw, any more mensuration questions?

Also I need very simple questions on trigonometry; for core math not elective. Thanks in advance.

Re: Mensuration

Thanks bobbym and ganesh. Dear ganesh, I'm compiling these questions to refer to them later for revision. I hope you don't mind that, or do you? Also I'd like to know if you'd add any more so I reserve space in my book for those as well. Enjoy your day or evening (depending on where you are).
