    you do:

    18^2=k^2x50 (you basically want to get the scale factor, k)

    then rearrange to give 18^2/50=k^2
    sqroot 18/50 to give scale factor of 0.6

    then,

    mass= k^3 x 500
    =0.6^3 x 500
    =108g

    I start the exam in an hour and a half :/ hope it's easier than Tuesday's as I reckon I did really badly in that one. I need at least a C for next years college course. I tend to get more marks on paper 2 than paper 1 though so hopefully it will be ok. Good luck everyone!

    Overall, I think I've got between 125-135 marks out of 200. I hope the grade boundaries are decent so I can get my A. Made a few stupid mistakes and on some questions messed up completely but fingers crossed!

    In comparison to paper one, (which wasn't excessively hard itself) I found the calculator to be almost ridiculously easy. I was very surprised. Strangely enough, the guy in my maths set who is generally regarded the best at maths is adamant that he messed up in paper 2 which is odd as he finished paper 1 30 minutes before the end.
