    They are not decided until after all the papers have been marked.

    No asterix on that question so you should get all of the marks.

    For question 6, I put centre 0, but not 0,0 and I wrote everything else correctly. Would I still get full marks for this question?

    I put 620 for the estimation question rather than 600 (rounded to 31 rather than 30)

    How many marks would i get for this out of 3? 2?

    Question 12.
    Mr M, is that the correct answer for that question?.. dont you do 12x12= 144... 6^2xtt = 36TT(in terms of pie)
    and then 144-36= 108, then 108/4 because there are 4 corners and then doesnt this give you the answer for the 1 corner? I asked my maths teacher that question after the exam and he said i done it the correct way? can you please confirm that these stages i done are right or wrong.. and how much marks i would have got for the question, thank you.

    Hey,
    On 2a) I got 81, is that close enough to 84?

    For 6) I wrote "Scale factor 2.5 about the origin" would that get the marks?

    For 28a) i got "-3b + a" is that the same? Will i get the marks?


    But thanks for this Mr. M! Its put my mind at ease! Really appreciate it!

    the 6^2 is actually being multiplied by pi. 36 comes from dividing 144 but I'm not too sure where the pi but comes from.

    This was posted from The Student Room's iPhone/iPad App
    There was an equilateral triangle between the 2 Pattern A tiles. So 360-60 = 300
    300/2 =150.
    So the exterior angle is 30 because it must add up to 180
    360/30 =12 as the exterior angles add up to 360.
    So 12 vertices= 12 sides.

    For question 18 how did you get 12 sides?

    I got 6 sides as I thought that tile B was an equilateral triangle ??

    HELP!

    But is it not 12 x 12 = 144. 6 x 6 = 36. And I didn't do this but aren't you supposed to do 144 - 36 = 108, then 108/4 gives you the area of one shaded corner?
