Is there anyway that you can display the marks on each question so people can have a further insight on how many marks they got. Thanks in advance👍🏼

You know question 10c would 8/4*6=12 also be a correct answer and something I can get marks on.

Oh thank you for taking the time to do this for us!

Looking at the above, i think i have about 8 marks wrong - i remembered how many the marks were on questions i wasn't too sure on, but i think i got at least 90% but up to max 93%

Just a couple of questions if ya dont mind.

22) I actually wrote -5m+10 - would i still get this one right even though it's the other way round (You wrote 10-5m)?

24) b) i worked out that 16/80 was the same as 1/5 - so i changed the bottom to 300, and worked out "how many 5s was in 300" and times that to the top - I did get 60 - would i still get this one right? Just think i did it the long way round lol.

Thank you

Yes both good. The algebraic convention is to put letters before numbers which is your way ... and to be honest the way I would have answered. The way I wrote it just looks a bit nicer as its starting with a positive value.
