________________________________ ____________________
Are you sure 21b was 9/64? Is it not 5/9 because 5 people have 3 (L,D and T) and 9 people have at least 2 (L and D I think).

Also, you seem to be missing the 2 students who are supposed to be outside the 3 sets in question 21 a. There were 32 students and you have only listed 30.

6. no it was definitely -5+12 root 18. I got 2 at first but then realised I had it wrong

Yeah, and an easy way to check surds is to just put the first equation in your calculator, note the answer and then put your simplified equation in your calculator and if you get the same result it is right.

and also there is a verify mode on the casio calculators where u can put both sides of the equation in and it tells u if it is true or false. This is how i check most of my answers
9. (Original post by WhiteX)

note the right answer is 12 root 18
10. you get the whole mark minus one or two depending on where in the working u went wrong
