How many marks would you lose (if any) for getting the right answer by using the wrong method, or the method the examiners had not intended you to use?

How many marks would you lose (if any) for getting the right answer by using the wrong method, or the method the examiners had not intended you to use?

It depends on the question, if it says "hence show that", they usually want you to use a previously obtained answer. Sometimes they'll state what method to use, if it says "or otherwise" you're ok
