Do you think I would get the 2 marks?

I wrote sin^2x... That's all lol. I knew it had something to do with six/cosx though
possibly 1 mark because it asked you to simplify but at least you tried it i think only 10 in our year tried that question

Then I'd imagine you'd get 4 out of 5 marks for it if it did ask you to round to 2 sig figs

To be quite honest, I really enjoyed revising for maths because I'm quite good at it, however, the SQA has completely destroyed my confidence.
