3. Okay, so you roll the dice and the probability of you getting a winning number is 1.5*10^2. You're rolling the dice twice so it will be the probability of winning multiplied by itself. (1.5x10^2)(1.5x10^2). What AQA paper are you doing? As in what year and month.

the answer posted above is rigth, The trick is if it is a decrease percentage you make the number a decimal (divide by 100) and then subtract this number from 1.0. So 27% = 0.27, which is 0.73 when subtracted from 1.0. You then times this number by the inital price. If it's a percetnage increase, you do the same but you ADD the number to 1.0. So if it was a 41% increase you'd add 0.41 to 1,0 to get 1.41 and then you would times this number by the inital price.

No, His weight is 51.5kg and he now weighs 8.5% less. you can calculate this by doing 100% - 8.5% = 91.5%

91.5% = 0.915 in decimal form

51.5*0.915 will give you a decrease in weight by 8.5%

I thought I had enough space; turns out I didn't. If you still don't get it I'll write it out clearer.
