    Hi, so for this question, I am confused about the solutions posted to physicsandmathstutor for part b of this question. Such as, where did the 3 come from? I have a feeling it's super obvious but I'm still confused. Any help appreciated

    Yeah I did that paper lol (even though I'm not doing the pat). I got like 63/100 so okay although would have been 70+ with no silly mistakes.
