23) was 3-x/(x-3)(3x-4)
It was, yeah

23) was 3-x/(x-3)(3x-4)
No it wasn't 😂😂 3-X/(3-x)(-3x-4)=1/-3x-4=-1/3x+4

480 because I multiplied the 2 by 240 and got 480. Glad I got this one right because I failed the rest of the paper...
How is it 480? The ratio was 3:2 and the width remained 750. So 3/5 is 750 meaning 1/5 is 250. So 250*2 = 500 = height. Where have I gone wrong?
4. the car and bars questions were stupid

Find the volume and then rearrange to find the mass then transform into kg and they divide.

80.4
or 80.1 we are having a school debate, you couldd say a maths debate
I think 80.1/80.4 is right it all depends on whether if you took the whole number with decimals with your working out or you round it off to make it simple to do the maths. For my case i rounded it of for my working out. Therefore i ended up with an answer of 80.4

For question 23, will you get 2 marks for 3-x/(x-3)(3x+4)?
Fully simplified it becomes -1/3x+4 rigth?
I got -(1/3x+4), which means it's -1/3-4, could be wrong though, not totally sure
12. (Original post by muchunknown)
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
did anyone else get 40.0, I used 1/2 a b sin(c). so sin-191/2X7X8 which comes to 40.0.
ps.this is verity not anna :P<3

yeah thats what i got.
I got that too. You can't simplify it any more than that.

23) was 3-x/(x-3)(3x-4)
yeah i put that put cancelled out the (x-3) and the top 3-x would that be wrong?

The width was 720

wheres mr kibria? or whatever his name is
That's a translation error so you'll only lose one mark.
