2. What was Question 3??
3. What were the questions 3 all of 6, 10, 11, 21 and 22 can't remember...
4. What would i have got for the last one if i put 40.1, as i read the question to be find the angle through using the 1/2 x A x B x Sin C formula.

And for 18a what would i get for putting - 10a^4b^3

I'm the same 😂
7. (Original post by maxj1015)
For 17 if i wrote 30.1 without any workings what would i get?
You would probably drop 2 marks. How did you get there with not writing working? Easy marks lost.

1 or 2 marks for last question
Probably zero for 18 a
13. The marks, if last one is worth six, add up to 102.
14. (Original post by Certified)

Oh okay, so 1/2 out of 6?
15. Please could you do the full work solution to questions 17 and 14 please?
16. (Original post by Macauley Ware)

3 at the most unless the examiner is very generous which is unlikely, especially for Maths. I'm not an examiner though so don't stress
17. ~ Well, I know that I got at least half the method marks ~
18. What was 12?
19. (Original post by Masturbator123)
What was 12?
Pentagon 'find x'
20. What would I get for 79.9 to 3 sig fig for the last one? I did exactly the method said and it worked in the area equation??
