3. What did people do for the inverse proportion question?
4. What did everyone get for the last question? After getting 2/8 - root6/12 I was a bit stumped but I ended up with some odd decimal like 1.66. Anyone else?

What did people do for the inverse proportion question?
Worked out the value of K to be 100 and substituted. Got 100, 25 and 4 I think
6. What kind of questions came up in the paper? Did recurring decimals, graph transformations come up? If we list the topics and those topics won't come up in the calculator paper.

The last one included the value for the big triangle as 0.25. That's all I remember.

I don't think it matters as long as you got 4, 25 and 100

I don't think it was inverse proportion. I did inverse proportion; however walking out of class some retard on extra time asked what the notation was and she said it was directly proportional. Which is ******** cheating but w/e.

That one was easy if you approach it well. All I did was divide and got 0.1, 0.2 and 0.5 (that should be right)

It was inverse tho? It worked out as inverse
