1. I thought the holiday question was 1 adult 2 children so she didn't have enough money?

Maybe we will get it right as there could be multiple answers. I hope so anyway!!
Did you work it out by doing simultaneous equations?

1 adult and 1 children, came to llike 977.50 if I remember correctly so she had enough by a fair bit

No, I just added all of the angles up and then took away from both sides. I then just selected two numbers which fits (2x+y=44) so therefore x=11 and y=22. It's probably not the best solution to work it out but I proved that it was right by slotting it back into the angles.

I have a feeling I've read on a mark scheme before they tend to only give half marks for trial and error methods, but if its an answer theyll accept it. I remember getting something different and what this guy said on the thread!

Do you know what the question was out of? I'll take half marks tbh, better than nothing
7. Thats what I did! I got 1.5.... how about you?
8. the answer was 20 and 12, supplementary anlges inside two parallel lines add to 180, simple
9. Grade boundary for a B overall from two papers?
10. How did u work out the bread loafs one

How did u work out the bread loafs one
I used an equation.

There were six times more white than granary.

Therefore w = 6g

There were half as many brown as white

Therefore b = 3g

But he also made granary loaves so in total there were

6g + 3g + g = 10g

10g = 130
g = 13

He made 13 granary loaves, so w = 6g = 78 white loaves, and b = 3g = 39 brown loaves.
12. Would i get any marks for the completing the square question if i got the correct answers, but i used another method?
13. What do you reckon the grade boundaries will be guys for maths higher
14. Yes
15. For the probability one that's 2/15, does it have to be cancelled down or will 12/90 get me the marks?

You should be fine with that answer.
18. hi
i got x=60 and y=8
because the question was like 2x+y=128 and 5x+y=100 so its basically simultaneous
