1. (Original post by #1Mathlete)
Small packs (x) have 5 envelopes
Large packs (y) have 20 envelopes
Give a formula for total (T) number of envelopes

T=5x+20y
Can't believe that was worth 3 marks...

It didn't ask for the midpoint. (1, 2.5) was the midpoint.
Ahhhh crap
4. [QUOTE=gcseexamz;65196911]Coordinates were (1, 2.5), (5, 7)

How can the midpoint be totally negative if the two points were positive(on the upper part of the graph??
Surely the midpoint would be somewhere near the coordinates right?
I put the midpoint was ( 3, 4.75)[/QU

they gave the midpoint we had to work out Q or something i swear ?

3b)teacher asks students to do a questionnaire, why might the sample be bad?

A: biased, due to same age range??- not 100%
Yes that sounds correct. You could've said because of the sample being in the same school, it could have had influence on the decision making etc...
6. For the 36% answer question, what were the 3 marks for?

7*10^8
The question was (5 X 10^6) / (3.5 X 10^-3)
So I did:
5 X 3.5 = 17.5
6 - -3 = 9 = 10^9
17.5 X 10^9 = 1.75 X 10^10

No?

difficult to say considering the fact that only 1 paper has been sat. however, if paper 2 is similar then 160-165 for A*

13. what was question 5 again
14. (Original post by angelax)
The question was (5 X 10^6) / (3.5 X 10^-3)
So I did:
5 X 3.5 = 17.5
6 - -3 = 9 = 10^9
17.5 X 10^9 = 1.75 X 10^10

No?
Incorrect

its 3.5x10^-3 / 5x10^6
15. For the -0.4 and 4.4 question wouldn't it be the opposite, 0.4 and -4.4?

g^2
k^6
10-5m
n(n-7)
45
90
No not enough varnish cos she needs 50cm^2 but has 37.5cm^2

19. (Original post by ewales)
That was a tricky one, everyone at school seems to have different answers:
Mine being (2 - root 6)/12.
I got that too but I didn't think it was right. I could be wrong though...
