1. (Original post by GKT)
What was the answer on the 7 hours shift working from Monday to Friday. He gets e pounds express it in e simplest form
I think this is 7e but it's probably wrong.
2. Does anyone have a link to the paper?
3. What was the answer to the total amount of votes one??
4. I did the higher paper, but some of our first questions are your last ones.
The volume of the prism was 750cm cubed. The varnish one was that she couldn't as she needed 4 tins but she only had 3 tins.
Hope it helps!
5. I guessed 5e in simplest form but not sure:/
6. For the pie chart one I got 120/360 but couldn't figure out the other one question linking. The tea and coffee question was : the coffee tin has 150g. He uses 3 grams of coffee a day, he wants to make 500 coffees how many tins does he need, and one tin cost £4, 160 tea bags cost £4.50 he wants to make 300 teas and uses 1 tea bag per tea, and then you have to work out the total cost
7. I didn't sit the paper but if anyone has any of the questions I'll work out the answers here! Looking for answers for a student I tutor but she can't remember any questions! I have a maths degree so can do the paper completely if anyone has it

What did everyone get for the amount of votes???
I cannot remember but I divided the girls angle which got her 45 which came me 5 and then just multiplied each angles by 5 and then added them all up.
9. Well we all have autism
10. Anyone got hands on the Foundation paper from yesterday please?
11. Really need to find the foundation paper!! Anyone 👀

I think this is 7e but it's probably wrong.
It was 7(hours) X 5 (days) = 35e
It took me ages to work this one out!
13. Is there a mark scheme for the foundation paper?
14. Would 0.04l be accepted instead of 40ml? or did the question specifically say ml and I missed it?

(Original post by LogicalFallacy)
After finishing the higher paper's mark scheme with the help of members of TSR (http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4120523), I thought I'd start one for the foundation paper.

Any contributions will be graciously accepted!
Spoiler:
Show
750cm3 for the prism cross area

10 litres for the last one so she didn't have enough as she had 7.5

30.00 for the meal difference

40ml difference for the coke one
15. I put 0.04 litres too

16. Where's the mark scheme again?
17. [QUOTE=GKT;65242589]I put 0.04 litres too

As it was talking about litres I assumed I had to put the answer in litres

I put both, 0.04l and 40ml - just to be sure, but it did not say which units.
19. Lol everyones forgotton about the foundation people
20. I was confident about this exam, but now seeing everyone's answers I'm worrying lmao😂😂
