1. How many marks would you get if you done the trial and improvement table correct but put 3.7, that's if the answer is 3.8? Do you get 3/4 marks someone please answer.

3.7 = 32.153

34-32.153 = 1.847

3.8 = 35.872

35.872-34 = 1.872

You dont use 3.75

3.4 is closer
I Swear the answer is 3.7, that's what i put. At first i put 3.8 then changed to 3.7.

I strongly think the answer is 3.7 and other people got it wrong tbh, also you don't count the 3.75 right? Plus 3.7 is more closer than 3.8.

or 80.1 we are having a school debate, you couldd say a maths debate
it is 80.4.
You can trust me since I got 100% on the non-calculator paper and 98% on the calculator. I think it is pretty impressive not to believe )

Exactly. Since when do you count the 3.5? Never done that for trial and improvement. Always been what is closer

You're most likely going to get 3 marks. The answer could be wrong but its you're working out that will get the marks.

okay so the question was how much did it cost every week..and they gave u this info
parking costs 3.50
he travels to work and back from there to home
to work is 18 miles
45.2 miles is 1 gallon
1 gallon is 4.546
1litre costs 136.9 pence

Parking is 3.50 * 5 = 17.50 - put that to the side
travel to work is 18 * 2 (to work and home) * 5 which is 180 miles
do 180/45.2 to find how many gallons that is and its 3...something, keep the number and dont round it off
do the answer for the top part * 4.546 to find out how much litres
the answer is around 18... something, again dont round it off. use the answer for the next part (18...) and multiply it by 136.9 pence
divide the answer from that by 100 to get it in pounds, the answer for that is 24.7837460177. You obviously can not round that down to 24.78 because the extra part doe snot just disappear so you round it up to 24.79. Then you do 24.79 + 17.50 and u get 42.29..
right?
oh i see, i did 36*5=80, how stupid of me, how many marks would i get for that
17. Did anyone else use 1/2 absinC, cosine then cosine again? I think I got it wrong I got 42.4???
18. (Original post by jamesM22)
It just works like that. No reasoning
That's very annoying.

You got the idea right; however the answer is 80.4 after the calculation. Always happens to me, I understand the logic, but make a silly mistake in the working out.

i used 1/2absinc then cosine then sine rule and got 80.4
