# Worded mathematical problems Watch

1. I've covered most topics but I'm finding it hard to apply logic and identify what the worded questions are asking me to do. I have 11 days and plan to spend 4/5 hours a day on maths. What can I do to improve this skill?

Which exam is this for? The third on requires you find 75% of a previous results several times - does that help you remember the topic?

Hmm - not impressed by that - it's just a cut and paste of old questions!

I'd call the question 'growth and decay' - usually questions are set on compound interest [growth] and depreciation [decay].
