    they're not from past papers, they are just designed to push you by applying gcse maths knowledge in slightly complex situations. Don't worry, this won't appear in the summer exam

    This is not a "Challenging" question.
    It is long one.

    Try questions that are put into real-life scenarios because they catch people out more but still have a go with that.

    If last years paper is out, do it; I thought it was harder than most papers I have done for maths Edexcel GCSE.

    Oh sorry I didn't see the '/' ! Your answer is correct for that part
    a^-1 = 1/a
    So both of our answers are equivalent
