    What was question 7 which answer was a coordinate (-3,-2) I think? Like what was the q about ????
    It was something like 'M is the midpoint of PQ. M and Q are shown on the graph. What are the coordinates of P?'
    I'm pretty sure Mwas at (1, 2.5) and Q was at (5, 7)

    It gave you a line, with the mid point and the co ordinate A which you had to use to find B.
    Was it in a graph? Like find the midpoint of 2coordinates? Thanks

    It was looking for the angle near the bottom yes, touching the tangent and the right side of the triangle
    On the right side of the triangle not the actual base of the triangle though right?

    Yeah, you had to do 1 - 4 = -3 and 2.5 - 4.5 = -2
    (-3, -2)

    the percentage question was 36%.
    the number of females were 11.
    the shaded area in a square was 100-25TT = 25(4-TT).
    Yeah for the shaded area question I got that as well but didn't know if the "simplest form" was the factorised version or just 100 - 25π ... are you sure we were supposed to factorise it?

    Q on vectors (towards the end of the paper)
    a) a+b
    b) 3b-a (think so, don't remember)
    c) 0.75(a+b)
    d) S is the intersect between PR(?) and OT and S lies on OT such that OS: ST = 3:1

    Standard form was 3.5x10^something / 5x10^-3 it comes out to 7x10^8
    The questionnaire responses can't have overlapped
    The possibly answers included:

    No time frame
    Answers to vague
    Lack of option etc.

    Couldn't really be overlapping providing the fact there weren't any numbers in the options?
