    For number 7, I got that he needs 51m? Will I still get marks?

    Also can I ask what the cost was for number 8 thanks
    51 is correct.

    50ml = £1.09
    75ml = £1.68
    125 ml = £2.69

    Ask a teacher in your school? They are allowed to use them with candidates in their centre. My advice would be to focus on your A level - surely GCSE is a pretty trivial challenge for you now?
    I'm only in AS bare in mind, I just like to try the papers, they're nice sometimes, relaxing in comparison to FP1/FP2 that's for sure! Just nice to reassure myself that I've got all the basics.

    Also Mr M, for the fuel Q, I somehow got 9mins, do u think I'll get some marks for the method at least?

    Also for number 8, I converted them into pence...could this still be correct?

    Also Mr M, for 15(a) I wrote that when a radius touches it it's 90degrees, is this wrong? ( I think it was this exam?! )

    Also for number 8, I converted them into pence...could this still be correct?
    I've not seen the exam, but from what you've said, I assume it was a circle theorem question with a tangent and a radius.

    You should've said 'When a tangent and a radius meet, a 90 degree right angle is formed', as it is GCSE you may pick a mark up for that, though

    Fuel - that just sounds wrong.

    Unless you did a division or multiplication involving both numbers no marks for 8.

    I did two math exams, I'm not sure whether it was this one that required an explanation, or the other one. Thanks regardless!

    I did divide them! Just from pence instead of pound

    No marks - this was an angle in a semicircle question.

    For question 15 did you have to use sohcahtoa? And then make an additional right angle triangle, to give u the full length of the side of the triangle on the circle. My answer was 2-Something, so would i get method marks?

    I used tan and then sin i think. You had to find the length of one by using tan and x it by 2 because it met the centre of the circle. Then use sin to find the other length. I got 2. something I can't remember exactly.
