1. Anyone get the plumber question 😰
2. No I did it and that plumber question was so hard. I put down 8 goodness knows if that is correct.
3. I could not do the triangle question either: answer was a2x62=c2 when I looked it up.
4. I just asked my partner who is a chatered accountant and he said we should have drawn them both on the graph paper! and when the lines join that is the answer

No!!! If anyone managed to solve it please share! :-)
6. Was the plumber question to work out the number of hours for 2 companies?
7. I remember some questions such as lessons start 9:05, there is a 15min break inbetween lessons 2 & 3 and lessons finish at 11:50am.. how long is each lesson?

55 mins
9. I could not work that one out. I went back to it and finally put down 55minutes.
The plumber one was awful!
10. Also question about the volume of the cuboid with the balls inside I can remember.. each ball I think it said was 5cm diameter and it wanted to know the volume of the cuboid

You should of done
9:50->11:50=3hrs
3hrs(180mins) - 15 mins = 165mins
165/3 = 55

No you just draw a line of best fit and work it out from there?
14. does anyone know what the marks were out of for this paper? and what do you think you will need to get to get a C
15. Yes.....2hrs after my exam...

40x + 17.5 = 35x +40
-35 = -35
5x + 17.5 = 40
-17.5 = -17.5
5x = 22.5
5x ÷5 = 22.5 ÷ 5
X = 4.5
16. Volume = L×W×D

eqch ball is 5cm in diameter and fitted in the cuboid 3 by 2.

So its 15cm in length
And 10cm in Width and 5cm high.

So its 15×10×5 = 750cm3
