    Okay, so you roll the dice and the probability of you getting a winning number is 1.5*10^2. You're rolling the dice twice so it will be the probability of winning multiplied by itself. (1.5x10^2)(1.5x10^2). What AQA paper are you doing? As in what year and month.

    My advice then will be to ask your teachers for exam paper resources

    the answer posted above is rigth, The trick is if it is a decrease percentage you make the number a decimal (divide by 100) and then subtract this number from 1.0. So 27% = 0.27, which is 0.73 when subtracted from 1.0. You then times this number by the inital price. If it's a percetnage increase, you do the same but you ADD the number to 1.0. So if it was a 41% increase you'd add 0.41 to 1,0 to get 1.41 and then you would times this number by the inital price.

    No, His weight is 51.5kg and he now weighs 8.5% less. you can calculate this by doing 100% - 8.5% = 91.5%

    91.5% = 0.915 in decimal form

    51.5*0.915 will give you a decrease in weight by 8.5%
