    2.5x 3=7.5
    0.25mx0.2=0.5
    7.5/0.05=150
    150/20=7.5
    8X8.50=68

    i did this paper the other day!

    1) change the measurements of wall from m to cm (250cm right hand side and 300cm bottom)

    2) divide these lengths by the tile (250/25=10 tiles needed up and 300/20=15 tiles needed across)

    3) 10x15=150 tiles needed overall

    4) divide by 20 as there are 20 tiles in a box (150/20=8 boxes needed)

    5) £8.50 x 8 = £68 (total cost, final answer)

    I reckon one of those interior/exterior questions will come up. Remember to work out the exterior angle first by dividing 360 by the total amount of sides. Then to work out the interior angle minus the exterior angle from 180. I think there will be one or two mean questions so don't panic when you see them

    Rearranging the subject of the formula isnt too hard but can get very tricky depending on the numbers,stem and leaf and questionaires practically spoonfeed us marks.
