Question 1. What is the volume of the prism? (3 marks)

Area of face = 30cm²
Length of prism = 25cm.

30cm² x 25cm = 750cm³

Question 2a. Reflect shape in line X = -1 (2 marks)

Accept correct reflection.

Question 2b. Rotate shape 90° anticlockwise. (2 marks)

Accept correct rotation.

Rotate at (0, 1)

Question 3. What is wrong with the questionnaire? Give two reasons. (2 marks)

'Too vague (i.e. not 1-2, 3-4 etc.)' and 'no time frame (i.e. not per week, per month, etc.)' are accepted.

Create a better survey for him to use. (2 marks)

Why is his maths class not a good sample? (1 mark)

'Too small' and 'may be biased' are accepted,

Question 4. Simplify.
P2 x P5 = P7 (1 mark)

G6 ÷ G4 = G2 (1 mark)

(K3)2 = K6 (1 mark)

Expand and simplify 3(m+4) - 2(m+1) (1 mark)

10-5m

Factorise n2 - 7n (2 marks)

n(n-7)

Question 5. Estimate 892 ÷ 18.9 (2 marks)
Round to 1 significant figure

900 ÷ 20 = 45

Question 6. A teacher is picked at random. 3/5 chance they are female. 36 are males. (3 marks)
How many teachers are there altogether?

2/5 of teachers are male. 36 are male.

2/5 of total = 36
2 x 18 = 36
18 x 2 = 90.

Question 7. Can the floor be varnished with 3 tins of 2.5 litre varnish and it is 5 m2 per litre. (5 marks)

2.5 m x 6 m = 15 m2
2.5 m x 6 m = 15cm2

10 m - (2.5 m - 2.5 m) = 5 m
6 m - 2 m = 4 m

5 m x 4 m = 20 m2

15 m2 + 15 m2 + 20 m2 = 50 m2

5 m2 per litre, 50 m2 ÷ 5 m2 = 10 litres

2.5 litres per tin, 3 tins, 3 x 2.5 = 7.5 litres.

Not enough, 7.5 litres is less than 10 litres.

Answer is 'not enough' with evidence.

Question 8. Spinner, spins 300 times. (3 marks)

Question 9. 5 envelopes in small, 20 in large. What is total? (3 marks)

T = 5x + 20y

Question 10. Point is the midpoint. Where is the other end? (2 marks)

Question 11. How many females visited the art gallery? (4 marks)
66 students went on the trip.
Males - Bowling - 4

Females - Art Gallery - 11
Total - Art Gallery - 20

Males - Skating - 10
Females - Skating - 26
Total - Skating - 36

Males - Total - 23
Females - Total - 43
People - Total - 66

Question 12. (3 marks)

Area of square = 10cm x 10cm = 100 cm²
Area of circle = π5² = 25π cm²

Area of shaded = Area of square - Area of circle = 100 cm² - 25π cm² = 100 - 25π cm²

Question 13. What percent of his total spending is his rent now? (3 marks)

Question 14. Bisector of an angle (2 marks)

Correct perpendicular bisector of line (2 marks)
Attachment 538961

Question 15.

Compare median, interquartile range and range. (3 marks)

200 x 25% = 50
200 - 50 = 150

Last part, answer was 150. (2 marks)

Question 16. (3.5 x 106) ÷ (5 x 10-3) (2 marks)

7x108

Question 17a. Solve 3x - 5 < 16 (2 marks)

x < 7

Question 17b. Solve (11-w) ÷ 4 = 1 + w (3 marks)
w = 7 ÷ 5

Question 18.

2 4/5 (3 marks)

4/5 (3 marks)

Question 19.

x = -0.4 or x = 4.4
x = -1.1 or x = 5.1 (3 marks)
x = -1.7 or x = 4.7 (3 marks)

Question 20. What is the angle? (5 marks)
Angles in a triangle add up to 180°, base angles in an isosceles are equal.
180° - 48° - 48° = 84°

Angle at centre is twice angle at circumference.
84° ÷ 2 = 42°

Angles in a triangle add up to 180°, base angles in an isosceles are equal.
(180° - 42°) ÷ 2 = 69°

Question 21. What is the chance of the match being cancelled when it does not rain? (5 marks)

0.8 x 0.05

Question 22. Solve X² = 4(X-3)² (3 marks)

X² = 4[(X - 3)(X - 3)]

X² = 4[X² - 3X - 3X+ 9]

X² = 4[X² - 6X + 9]

X² = 4X² - 24X + 36

0 = 4X² - X² - 24X + 36

0 = 3X² - 24X + 36

0 = 3[X² - 8x + 12]

0 = 3[(X - 6)(X - 2)]

X = 6 or X = 2

Question 23. (6 marks)
a + b

-a + 3b

¾(a+b)

Point S is on both lines and is the point at which the lines intersect.

Question 24. (4 marks)

Question 25. (3 marks)

Ikr, there was a stupid kid who did the same as Mrs Grey and then panicked at his real exams because he was predicted all A*s.

True, I can be pretty idiotic.

Then you want to get your head down and actually revise and do PRE-2014 past papers.

AQA only has papers up to 2013 smfh.
14. You'll regret cheating on your mocks tbh.
15. i am in year ten and have just had my end of year exams. year ten exams don't go towards your predicted grades, which is a brilliant thing. what i wanted to say was that i am generally a straight A*/A grade student (in year ten) but haven't done that great in my end of year ten exams. however, i would rather not do that great in them and use that as a learning curve. i mean it was detrimental that i did not begin revising earlier. also i have been focusing on trying to get all of my coursework to an A* standard, which has taken all the energy out of me!
another one of my friends cheated in her end of year ten exams. she has done well though, but just learnt mark schemes - rather than the overall content.
i guess what i am saying is that i would prefer to do not very well through not cheating - using my mistakes as a learning curve. so that i can perform astoundingly in my year 11 mocks. rather than cheating which is pointless and does not reflect true ability.

16. Oh love, if you cheat on these you're gonna be ****ed. Its not a competition with the rest of your class and year, the teacher doesn't really care, neither does the school. Its for you to do it, see where you went wrong, and revise and learn that. If you cheat, you're not going to know what to revise and you'll be stuck next year. Trust me, i was in the same boat up until a month ago (I'm in year 11).
17. Thank you and I am revising rn lmao

18. Thank you and I am currently revising rn

If you get A* in your mocks and don't come in for your actual GCSE's can't they count the mocks as the GCSE...?
