80.1 is also correct. It seems 80.3 or 80.1 is the answer
its 80.4 u need to use whole numbers not just shortened ones
2. small packet 18 bags for £4
400p/18 =22.22p each bag
medium 20 bags for £4.99
499p/20 =24.95p each bag
large 26 bags for £6
600p/26 =23.08p for each bag
therefore the small packet was the best value for money

20 something
Yeah I got the same, like £24 something. Can't remember.

20 something
I got around that as well. You had to convert it into pounds.. I think. I really hope I get an A. Although the questions were easy. The wording was tricky and I think that would have thrown off a lot of people. I'm just hoping for an A. God knows how hard I worked.

Anyone else get 80.4 for the last one?
I did! it literally took me 20 minutes to work it out haha!
10. What answer did you get for the answer about the prostitute leaning against the wall with her legs in an equilateral triangle shape
11. (Original post by yoyojames1234567)
It was 10 u cant have .7 of a person
Yeah exactly so you round up?
12. (Original post by SweetStarlight14)
There'll be a range of answers allowed for the last question to allow for rounding at different points in the calculation.
no edexcel explicitly say you only round it till the end. you dont round it halfway through the calculation
who else got 40 degrees for the last question?
80.4
14. (Original post by RNGeesus)
no it wasnt the trial and improvement was 3.8
It was 3.7
15. (Original post by Ihateexams16)
Did anyone get three for the amount of bars you can fit onto the shopping trolley question???
Yh, 3 is the right answer
16. (Original post by mahmzo)
Did everyone get 39 for the question about the farmers fence. (Back page)
you're on the chat for the wrong exam board pal
17. What did you guys get for the dude in the car
18. Trail and Improvement was 3.8

The crisp packets the best value was small

You could have 3 bars in the trolley

He hadn't lost more than half the value of his car (can't remember specific figures)

Stratified sample was 11

The rectangle perimeter I said x=9.25
