    Hey, this sounds like an easy 2 mark question but i just can't find a way to solve the answer..

    Question 1 part 4!

    http://www.ocr.org.uk/download/pp_11...gce_473201.pdf

    The question is: The minimum mark for grade A (the top grade) on Paper1 was 10 marks lower than the minimum mark for grade A in paper2. Given that 25 students gained a grade A in P1, find the number of candidates that got an A in P2

    Thanks...

    start by finding (reading off the graph) what the minimum required mark for an A on paper 1 was.

    Hint: you know 25 people got a A on that paper
