    The answers were (180,0), (270,-1) then A = 2 B = 2 C = 1 I think.
    ... I put the 0 and 180..the wrong way round.. The pain.

    Ah, that was good. Only annoying question was the 2014 seconds one, but I got 43.

    Last page, I put: (180, 0), (270, -1), 2, 3, 2.
    i saw estimate so I did 10,000/2000 to get 50, **** i hated this exam

    I got 40 as you had to estimate?

    60 x 60 = 3600 (seconds in hour)
    4000 (3600 to 1 sf) x 20 (24 to 1 sf) = 80000
    80000/2000 = 40

    I don't think I should have estimated as much as I did

    For the 2014 seconds one, it said find an estimate. So when I'd converted 24 hours into seconds I made both numbers into 1 significant figure.

    So I did 90,000 / 2,000 = 45.

    The way they worded it was confusing...
