    Hello TSR

    I was marking a paper and i noticed that for a question I did I left it as a fraction but not a fraction in its simplest form. Would i have to deduct a mark for this or would it be fine even though the answer was correct.

    It'd be helpful if you linked us the mark scheme or question paper. Unless the question specifically said to put in in the simplest form, you wouldn't lost a mark.
