    Question one. Answer = 6000

    There was some algebraic question. It was something like 3x4T and I got 12t.

    2. Put the numbers in order. Can't remember the numbers but fairly simple.

    Some other question about 3kg of meat = 54 pounds. Asked you to figure out how much 1kg costs. 54 divided by 3 = 18.

    Some question on houses. I got 220 as a total number of houses. Might of gotten that wrong.

    The line was a radius.

    Question on the area of the pyramid. I found the area of each triangle which was bxh divided by 2 = 12. I then multiplied 12 times 4 to find each of the faces. The base of the pyramid was a square with a side of 6. A square's sides are equal so I just did 6x6 to get 36. So 48 + 36.

    There was some question on costs of a holiday. I went stupid and only divided the return tickets cost by four. I neglected to divide the others by 4 as I thought it only applied to the first one. I didn't realise all the costs were divided by 4. I might have redeemed one mark at the end by dividing one of the answers by 4. I got the probably wrong answer of 1100.

    There were some ratio questions I can't remember the answers too.

    There was question asking you to find 15 percent of 160. I divided 160 by 10 and then divided that by 2 to find 8. I then multipled 8 by 3 to get 15 percent/24.


    The vectors were just adding and subtracting.

    Yeah first half was nice. I didn't like the y = 1-4X question.

    Was confused as to whether I should be concerned about whether a - or a + was relevant to the question.

    What answers did you put down for any questions?

    The graph question? yeah wasn't a fan of that. I was doing the x values times by 4 then taking that away from 1, not a clue if that's what you were meant to do though.
    Urmm i can't really remember most of the questions but for the salary one with the 3 different people I changed the fractions and ratios into percentages and said that Isabel saved the most with 30 percent or something, again probably wrong

    I was taking them away from 1. I had to keep stopping myself from subtracting 1 from the bigger number. My line ended up being slightly off

    Yup same, I didn't plot all the points but it seemed to form a graph of some form, what direction did your line go up from? bottom
    left corner or bottom right corner?

    Bottom right corner.

    I ended up writing down the values for both the ways I would interprate the information. I just chose one and ended up with bottom right corner
