How did people get 3 bars can anyone remember csuse i got 2. This is what i did

Density= mass/volume
Mass= density× volume

Mass=8*21600(15*12??)
Which gave me 17200

172800/1000=172.8
250/172.8=1.5 rounded to 2???
it was 3 bars and even if it was 2 you wouldve got it wrong because it said how many bars not half bars so it wouldve been just 1 bar in your case
5. i got that.

Wait but why would u have to work out the arc length of inside sector,u only need the outside one?
Yh that answer is not correct

i did not round any values up until 80.1
how did you get 80.1 then? I'm sure youll be fine anyhow, but I'm conifdent its 80.4, as i stored every value. Maybe you didn't write out the full number? Maybe you did something like 29.32 somewhere down the line (note this is a random number), instead of 29.3214999, which will then cause you to be a bit out?
14. I put 30 for the trigonometry one would i get the marks? also what did everyone get for changing the subject?
15. In the ratio question I clearly worked out it was 4:3 and but because it said "in its simplest form" I put 1:0.75. Is that still right and if not anyone know how many marks I'll get for the workings?
16. I got 80.2 ...
17. Ive dropped too many marks ffs
18. (Original post by erodedsoul)
I'm not too sure, if it was 2 marker I imagine you'll get at least 1 mark though.
nope you will get 2 marks for that you can display as a fraction, probs preferred method tbh
19. The small bag was 18 packs right????????!!!!!!!!@ i think i just wroe 18packets was better value

80.4
or 80.1 we are having a school debate, you couldd say a maths debate
If you round before the final answer u get 80.4 if you are accurate and don't round and keep the sins in the equation you get 80.1
