1. Hi, can someone please show me the working out for the bars question and where you'd get the marks?
2. I think I got 56 on the first paper and 81 on this paper, so this means I got 137 in total. Please can someone tell me if this is an A?

Sorry for the hold up with the questions
1. Order numbers correctly and include a key (Stem and leaf) (3 marks)
b) 9/20=
0.45 (2 marks)
2a. 5a*2b*3c =
30abc (1 mark)
b. Factorise fully 3y +6 =
3(y+2) (1 mark)
c. Expand x(x-3)=
x^2-3x (1 mark)
3. Perimeter of a rectangle with side lengths x and x+4 is 45

0.4+0.15+4x+x=1
0.55+5x=1
5x=0.45
x=0.09
4x=0.36
Green- 0.09 Red- 0.36 (3 marks)
6a. Body mass index= m/h^2

7. Trial and error. x^3-5x=34 with a number between 3 and 4
x^3-5x=34
3.7 gives you 32.153 which is too small
3.8 gives you 35.872 which is too big
So you go in the middle at 3.75 and if it is too big then its you go with the smaller option and viceversa so 3.75 gives you 33.984375 which is too small so you go for the larger option of 3.8

He didn't lose more than a half.
5. (Original post by STA1706)
for (Q19) i got 10.89 and i thought you cant round up people so i put 10, was it definitely 11
Yes
6. 19. 51 out of the 234 were maths in yr 12 so 50 * 51/234
11 males (2 marks)

The answer to the calculation was 10.89, but you can't have 10.89 people so surely it must go down to 10, not 11, as there aren't 11.
7. (Original post by WaveyH)
it surely can't be 168-170. the 2013 paper which was much easier than this had an A* boundary of 165, this is clearly a harder paper and so i fail to see how the grade boundaries would increase significantly
Let's hope they don't lol

okay thanks
9. (Original post by Meegan543210)
Last years paper was awful compared to this paper I reckon 168-170 easy for an a* literally everyone is saying it's easy but I don't lol
the grade boundaries for a c is 65-68 marks it cannot go any higher
10. when you try your best but you dont succeed.
11. Would i get a mark if i wrote both upper bounds for the solution cause i wrote it like 5(14.5-8.75)
12. (Original post by StarxScreamx)
i did the exact same. do we atleast get a single mark?
Should get 2, since it was a 3 part question.

when you try your best but you dont succeed.
when you are listening to that song and stumble across this comment... WEIRD!
14. I think I got 62 on the non-calculator paper and 87 on the calculator paper. This totals to 149 (149/200). Please can someone confirm if this is an A?
15. I think I only got like 71 marks right out of the 100 on today's paper. Not sure if that's good or bad.
16. Jokes on you if you got 3.8. Answer was 3.7

It just works like that. No reasoning

The jokes on you
19. I'm not sure if the car question about the car sale decreasing is correct on this mark scheme unless it was me that messed up in the test.

The jokes on you
3.7 = 32.153

34-32.153 = 1.847

3.8 = 35.872

35.872-34 = 1.872

You dont use 3.75

3.4 is closer
