    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.
    Yes, I was just going to the numbers that were given in the original post.

    40% = 36

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

    people who got 60 are wrong.
    No 3/5 are female
    36 are male

    So 36/2*5= 90

    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.
    I made a stupid mistake on that one too but I reckon I can still get some marks for method

    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!
    yeah basically you work out 1/5 of the teachers which was 18 and then you times it by five to get 90

    my friends got 75 pie but i had 4- pie so who is right?
    75pi is incorrect.

    4-pi is incorrect unless you're multiplying the whole thing by 25.

    The answers are 100-25pi, or that simplified to 25(4-pi).

    Yeah I think you would get the communication mark. You probably would get a method mark too but you wouldn't get the accuracy mark. That's how they mark it.

    Does anyone know the answer to the varnish question.
    It was She cannot cover the floor completely
    Because the floor was 50 m^2 and she had varnish for 35.25m^2
    She had 3 pots of 2.5litres each so 7.5 litres in total
    Every litre could cover 5m^2 of floor
    7.5x5= 35.25m^2
    And her floor was 50m^2
