****, I did too
I know it was like they did it to trick us.. like omg

Oops I calculated exactly? If youre talking about one on Foundation
How did you calculate it and what did you write?
3. What now?😭
4. And i know i also failed the pie chart question like i'm completely f*****!!
6. (Original post by 123moon)
I know i can't believe i did that
You don't even wanna know what I did lmao
I put it into a fraction
5/8 then times both by 100

500/800 then halved everything so it was spun 400 times
So it landed on c 250 times out of the 400😂😂😂😂 what the hell have I done
7. What did you put for the pie chart question?

Not 100% what I did but I know I worked out there were 18,000 althougher as the one that was 4500 was 1/4 so X it by 4 to get a whole one which is 18,000

That's what I did too

I have a feeling I stupidly wrote 180,000 by accident will I get method marks
11. Definitely
12. For the circle theorem, I got it wrong but I wrote

-Angles in triangle = 180
-Isosceles triangle so two sides are same
-Tangent meets radius so 90
180 - 48(2) = 84
How many marks would this get?..

Well i did BS i times the number 7 (or whatever it was) by the number of times it was set to spin was but i did still wrote 5/8 or whatever and for the other one i added up all the frequencies in the mini table and it came up to 0.80 but all probability adds up to one so i said it was 0.20 and also times it by the number and the amount of times it spun so please you could not of done any worse than me.
14. The other question i found weird was the Celsius and Fahrenheit one
15. Guys you did it right - it only said estimate because it's probability and you can't get an actual answer. 60 is the right answer and that's why it said estimate and not calculate

17. For the circle and square question, I wrote

10 X 10 = 100CM"2
Area of circle = PIE R"2
and then did 100/25
How many marks do i get?

But i still estimated it wrong
19. (Original post by Charlotteb1234)
The one about the probability and spinner and you had the estimate the number of times it would land on that number/letter if the spinner spins like 300 times or something like that and it gave you a frequency table
20. (Original post by Charlotteb1234)
The probability of someone getting an L on a spinner or something in 300 spins, because someone else spun it 80 times and got one 16 times.
