    oh,okay your working is very neat and clear

    for q24 b

    how many marks will i get as i got 2x/(x-1)(x+1)

    did you have to multiply the bottom
    Thanks

    Yeah. You had to expand the bottom and simplify, difference of two squares

    I would imagine you'd get 2 marks as most of the manipulation of the algebra is on the top of the fraction. You did well to get the answer you did. Examiners usually aren't too harsh and if you've clearly shown how you've got to your answer I wouldn't worry too much about it!

    for question 10 i got £42.77, do you think that will be correct or if not how many marks would i get for that?
    Sounds like you may have made a few rounding errors if you have shown enough working out then I would've thought 3, 4 if the examiner is feeling generous. Good luck

    May be a bit different as a lot of people have found this easier, or so they say. I wouldn't like to guess but I'd say anything over 160 would possibly get you an A*
