oooooo

Few questions
for question 6, i droped a sign and got 4x6y+13..
How many marks would i lose?
for question 7 i got my values for x BUT totally forgot to sub it back in to get y..
how many would i lose there?
and finally, question 9
i did 7 < x < 4 and totally forgot about negative lengths.. how many would i lose there?
Sorry for all the questions

I also got 7<x<4 which would technically be right?

Hi Mr M, for 3(iii)
i put (40/3,2) will i get any marks
i just divided it wrong. 
How many marks do you think I would lose if I accidently put 26root7 for the other x value on qu7? 1 mark? Also if I got the perimeter wrong 9ii) and put 10y+3 instead of 10y+6 resulting in getting 1.7<x<5.1? 2 marks?

Q7 not really sure what you have done
Q9 already answered 
Hi Mr M, if you had a guess what would you say will be the minimum for an A.

I will be able to answer questions but I am teaching all afternoon and after school so it won't be until after 5 p.m.
I'll try and answer loads of queries then.

Q6 probably 4 or 5 marks
Q7 not really sure what you have done
Q9 already answered
and q7) basically i worked it all out and got my y value to be 3 + root 7 .. i left it at that..
but i forgot to put it back into my equation and if i did then i would have got the right answer..
I think i'd lose 2 mark max? 
68/72 will be above 90 ums right?
