# Would I only get 1 mark for this question instead of 2? watch

1. For question 11a) (in the image I have attached, would I only get 1 mark for just putting 4.08? I believe 4.081 is the correct answer.
2. The question clearly states 3dp and not 3sf or 2dp, 4.081 is indeed correct.

So would I only get 1 mark? Past mark schemes indicate that if you do 2 dp and not 3, then you lose 1 mark.

Yes you will lose 1 mark so you will get 1 mark for that question
5. I agree. You could lose both marks if no working is shown.
