    No, can you post your working?
    is the answer 39.05

    100/10 = 10
    10 x 58.5 = 585

    100/11=9.09
    9.09 x 60= 545.45

    585 - 545.45 = 39.05

    is that right ??

    His test score should be a whole number.

    His total mark after 9 tests is 531 (9*59=531). His total mark after 10 tests is 585. (10*58.5) What did he get in the 10th test?

    You can use a similar process to work out what achieved in the 11th test.

    Hint : cyclic quadrilaterals.
    Is APDO a cyclic quadrilateral? I though all corners have to be touching the circumference?

    He received 75 for his 11th test. However, the question is asking for the difference between the 11th and 10th test, so subtract his 10th mark from 75, to get your answer.

    We know that the sum of his scores after the 10th was 585, as you have worked out. The sum after the 11th test was 660 (60*11). Therefore, we know that he received a mark of 75 in his 11th test.

    Note that the mean mark is the sum of his marks, divided by the amount of tests that he has taken.

    Can you help me with this question please

    At a birthday party, there is a 750g chocolate cake and a 600g carrot cake.

    At the party, 50% of the total weight of cake was eaten.

    Given that 54% of the chocolate cake was eaten, work out the percentage of the carrot cake that was eaten. (3 marks)

    So there is 750 + 600 = 1350g total weight of cake and 50% of cake is eaten so that means 1350 ÷2 = 675g of cake was eaten.

    The next step is to work out how much chocolate cake was eaten (you are told that 54% of chocolate cake is eaten). Can you continue from here?

    do you just do 54% of 675 and then take away that answer by 675g ?

    No 675g is the total amount of cake (of both types) that was eaten.

    54% of the chocolate cake was eaten which means that 54% of 750g of chocolate cake was eaten.

    Yes that's correct.

    It's useful for questions with diagrams to check if your answer makes sense (although be careful since diagrams aren't always drawn to scale) : AB looks like it's a similar length to EF so the answer 8.2 looks fine.

    If for example you got something like 20cm for EF then this would seem a bit odd so it would be worth double checking your working to see if you made a mistake.
