The width was 720
I concur - thought the test was quite easy so grade boundaries might be 168/200 for a*?
2. (Original post by Door105)
I didnt get an answer What did people get for the packet question?
Smallest packet was cheapest
3. will you still get marks for putting just 68 on the bmi question?
4. Second one is 0.65 ****ing ****
5. (Original post by muchunknown)
No it wasn't 😂😂 3-X/(3-x)(-3x-4)=1/-3x-4=-1/3x+4
😂😂😐no ur wrong mate
6. (Original post by Benb2000)
I got 80.4 but don think it's right
7. (Original post by bobs your uncle1)

8. (Original post by bamzy123)

Same
10. (Original post by Cen0015)
yeah i put that put cancelled out the (x-3) and the top 3-x would that be wrong?
You can't simplify further if u expand like that but you could of expanded like this

3-x/(3-x)(-3x-4) giving the same value on the bottom and then simplify by cancellation

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?
Don't think you can have decimals in ratios so i would say wrong, sorry

Yeah mate that's wrong as they are not equal
13. Well looking from this mark scheme, my chance of an A* has gone. I'm confident I'll get an A though.

15. Colin's cost to get to work and back over 5 days was £42.28
16. (Original post by Jake Skelton)
It was, yeah
I knew this is right.
Guys: 3-X is not the same as X-3
17. (Original post by jasontoomorgan)
yeah but that was the angle between 7 and 8, you had to then use the cosine rule to find out the other length and then the inverse cosine rule to find out x

(at least i think so, i got 80.4)
I used 1/2 a b Sin C, then i used the cosine rule then the sine rule. I got the same answer though.

Second one is 0.65 ****ing ****
No I'm certain it was 0.45 becase 9 people out of 20 got below 28
19. (Original post by danv)
