    I got around 160/200 overall - what grade do you think this is?

    I'm thinking its a high A or low A* depending on grade boundaries.

    I would assume a B, as I believe last year it was 98 for a B

    There will be a range for Q25 considering the values were very long and many people might have rounded and not typed the whole version in. Plus different calculators will cut the answer off. I got 80.4 but there will be a range.
    Yeah I used the answer button and wrote down one other working fully. My final calculator answer was 80.4755... To three significant figures it's 80.48 as the 0 is not a significant figure.

    Hoping boundaries are low. A* may go up to 160+ but hoping it stays low.

    I had 0.22 as well!!

    QUOTE=Gamer_44;65593879]Might be wrong, however, I think it may have been the small packet as the unit cost was something like 0.22222 whereas the others were higher?[/QUOTE]

    0 is considered a significant figure when between digits. However, you would not be penalised for leaving the answer to 2dp.

    what was ur answer? I got the right answer but i wrote yes for some reason, lol, silly me. but if you made the same mistake its because 7500 and under would mean the car depreciated by 50% as it costed 15000. If it was over this price, it was not as low as half yet.

    Oh f**k, I got 47.5! How did you get that? I used 1/2absinc, cosine rule and then sine rule - and triple checked it
    Basically in the area of a triangle, the angle has to 'connect' the 2 lengths...

    So it gave B-A = 7cm B-C = 8cm Find angle BAC

    Since this didn't connect the lengths, we had to find another length, or angle... Length was the easiest

    1/2 abSinC = 18
    (8*7*sinC)/2 = 18
    8*7*sincC = 36
    Sin^-1(9/14) = 40

    Then cosine rule
    A^2 = 8^2 + 7^2 - 2*8*7 * cos40
    A = 5.215651673

    Then sine rule
    A (from above) / sin40 = 8 / sinx
    8(sin40) / A = sinx
    X = sin^-1 (8(sin40) / A)
    X =80.37
    X = 80.4

    Hope that helped! Even though it's a bit late now

    Thanks, before the exam I researched significant figures and it was more complicated than I thought depending on the scenarios and stuff. Hopefully like you said they'll accept my answer, otherwise I can say good bye to the 100/100 dream.
