    I hate lift questions haha

    You have to round downwards because you are using the maximum values to work out X. So the number you get, such as 8.5, is the absolute maximum number of people you can have.

    Since you can't have 8.5 people, the maximum, you can only have 8 people.
    If you have 9 people the lift will break because it can't hold that force, it can only hold 8.5.

    Assuming if 8.5 was the correct answer, of course.

    + the answer for your second question should be 1, I can't see why not.
    OK thank you for the help

    It makes a change to have a female (one of those) contribute. STEP, unfortunately, is far too hard for what a-level maths course teaches (students typically score less than 40%, meaning they cannot manage even half of the paper, and these are future maths students..)

    when solving these problems, you're not meant to see the answer immediately. The trick is to analyse it for many minutes first.

    Idk what is challenging for you

    Here's one that's probably too easy, prove that n^3 - n is divisible by 6 for n a natural number
    Was that on an FP2 paper somewhere? I'm sure I have done this before!

    I'm in year 11 however in Sixth Form I wish to study Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. And I'm sorry I shall contribute by giving you this question:

    Oh and if you get an answer please be an angel and explain it to me.
