    I think it was:
    there are 3/5 male teachers
    there are 36 males
    How many teachers are there altogether.

    So firstly you say 2/5 female teachers... i don't wanna go any further because i got 60 as my final answer whilst others got 90!

    Can't the question about point S also be about how S splits the line OT into the ratio 3:1 (i think it's line OT, cant remember which line. i mean the one that we hadn't already been told about by the paper)
    Yeah it was line OT , and yep I said it splits the line ratio 3:1 too

    Yes as -5m+10 is already simplified, no need to factor it.

    i got 147
    it was 150 because £130 is the lower quartile, meaning 75% of workers got payed £130 or more, and 75% of 200 is 150

    40% = 36

    Therefore 100% = 36/40 * 100 = 90 people total

    people who got 60 are wrong.

    You could be right, I've never factorised it after simplifying nor have I ever been told to.

    60% = 36

    Therefore 100% = 36/60 * 100 = 60 people total

    people who got 90 are wrong.
    No because it said 3/5 were female, not male

    It was a 5 mark question I think. I made that mistake too but when I checked, I changed my answer to the right one.

    No.

    3/5 are female.
    That means 2/5 must be male.
    There are 36 male. Therefore the total number of teachers = 36/(2/5).
    This is the same as 36*(5/2), which is 180/2 which is 90.
