How was it 51% for the Rupees question?? it said he gave 3/5 of his money to max... and then you had to work out the percentage in comparison to the original.

Bahrain got 3500.
Therefore he gives 3/5 away to Max.... 3/5=2100
Bhavin is left with 3500-2100= 1400
then the percentage out of original 6000 rupees = 1400/6000 x 100= 23%
No Bhavin got GIVEN money by the other guy.

I really don't know. Maybe one or two because you used the fraction but not with the right person. I really hate it when I don't read a question correctly, you must be gutted.

Depends, if you tell me your working i could tell you, but i cant really tell without your working. Note that you will always lose the mark for the final mark and the method mark where you went wrong. You also run the risk of losing all method marks after you went wrong, depends on the mark scheme.

You know that the third answer he put down is wrong, right? You were supposed to give Bhavin's (I think that was his name) new share of the money over the total 6000 rupees and you were supposed to multiply it by 100 to get like 52%.

For the sphere question: If i did all correct working, but i got the conversion from mm to cm wrong. I got 16... so it was a conversion error.

You will probably get two as you got their initial amounts right, you may also get a mark for correctly using ratios, depends on the mark scheme.
You also correctly figured that it was 2100 rupees given away, so that will probably net you one mark.
I would say 2 out of 5, but it could be 3.
