    Could anyone tell me how to do the quadratic equation question? I kind of messed it up.

    I plotted the line at +2 instead of -2 and +6 instead of -6. So I think that'd get me 0/3.
    For the simultaneous equation, I correctly plotted x+y = 6 but since my answer to part (a) was wrong, would I get just 1 mark or would I get more as it is dependent on the previous part and I did the method correctly?

    Much appreciated. x

    You had to divide 3.5 by 5, leaving you with 0.7x10^9 = 7x10^8.

    does anyone know what the question was for (I think) it was question 8. People have said the answer was 60? It's the question that was above the letter one.
    yeah i think it was 60, it was 1/5 of 300

    It must be in exact form which just means surds. It doesn't need to be an integer value.

    It was the question about how many L's would he expect to get in 300 spins (probability question)

    The correct answer for the last one is (3-root 6) /12

    Would i lose a mark if i put 1/4 - (root 6)/12

    Hi guys, for the last question about the triangles, I think i forgot to half the area for one of the triangles. Foolish me, so now i got the same answer as everyone else except at the bottom I have 6 instead of 12. Can I still get around 2 marks for that?
    I got the same- I think we might get method marks but that's it😭

    Don't worry, you'll probably still get 2 marks out of the 3. :P And it's much better than most people managed to get in that question.
    Yea hopefully thanks
