    For the vectors I got
    a + b for OT
    -a +3b for PR
    3/4(a+b) for OS
    wrote something like it's parallel

    I got this apart from OS I did the opposite approach by doing a+ -a+3b /

    I got it wrong, but it was supposed to be 3-√6 all over 12
    I was going to leave mine as a surd fraction but the question said the exact value so I assumed it wanted a decimal or an integer?

    agree with that
    I said that it was parallel and that it showed that it was 3/4 of the line . because was worth 2 marks

    I wrote that point S lies on the line OT...

    Exact always means either a surd or a fraction!

    Heres what I got:

    1. 750cm^2 for the first question
    2. 45 days for the oil question
    3. 90 teachers
    4.11 females went to the art gallery
    5.Angie did not have enough vanish (I worked out that she needed 10 litres of vanish but only had 7.5 litres)
    6. For the tableI got: 100,25,4,(1)
    7. Rent question- i got 30% i think
    Who knows the answers to the vectors, circle theorem and last question
    i worked out that she needed 4 tins (because she needed 10 litres, and 2.5 is in each tin, therefore she needs 4 tins) but she only had 3, would that still be right, as i didn't have 7.5 written anywhere??

    Did we have to answer how many she actually needed?

    I don't think so, i think we just had to say she didn't have enough, but i wrote she needed 4 tins anyway

    Yeah you should gr the marks I put

    Area was 50cm^2
    50 divided by 5 = 10 litres needed
    2.5 x 3 = 7.5 litres they have

    What did you lot get for the last question? I got (3+8root6)/24
    I think that's wrong.

    1/2*√2/2*√2/2=2/8 = 1/4 - that's the big triangle

    The small triangle was 1/2*√3/3*√2/2 = √6/12


    So 1/4 - √6/12 is equivalent to (3-√6)/12


    At least that's what i did.
