    For question 11a) in the image I have attached, would I only get 1 mark for just writing 4.08 (2 decimal places) instead of 4.081 (3 decimal places)? We were meant to round to 3 decimal places but I only rounded to 2! The actual answer is 4.081. Would I only get 1 mark for rounding to 2 decimal places rather than 3?

    Okay! Tganks for responding anyway! For question 12, in the image I have attached, would I only get 1 mark for putting x=2, when in fact it should be x is <2. If I wrote "=" symbols in my working would I also lose a mark? I really need the msrks so please tell me I would only lose 1!! Surely I should get 1 mark for showing that I could almost get the answer?
