    In the M1 exam, for the speed time graph, I got the right answer of 8.75. But, I looked at a previous mark scheme, and it says "must see ½ used at least
    once in their expression.) " for the first method mark. I neglected to do this, rather just simplifying say 0.5 x 30 x 30 straight to 15 x 30 in my working. DOES THIS MEAN I GOT 0 PLS ANSWER IM SO SCARED

    Really doubt you'd get marked down for that, obviously it helps to show every step but you would not get 0 marks, and examiners aren't dumb if it says 0.5x30 and you have 15 you should get the mark anyways
