    Hi, if i did question 9 wrong as putting in the wrong n as i completely forgot that he is already 10 years old, then how many marks would i lose, i only did part b and c wrong. I did the right formula and everything, just the n'th term i put wrong, hopefully i get some marks out xD

    You should receive some marks for partly answering the question however, having said that if you didn't follow through with the correct value of n then you will not receive additional marks but we should all remain optimistic if the mark scheme contains similar calculations to yours then the examiners will you give some method marks.
