Hello everyone, I've been recently extremely panicking due to me realising that in aqa a level physics papers whenever there is a "show that" question, you are supposed to give the value to a higher sf, and then state that value equals the value given in the question to a lower sf. However, what I did in the recent paper 1 was write the value I obtained in truncated form i.e. 2.613... - then I wrote this equals 2.6 to 2sf, where 2.6 was the value given in the question you were supposed to show that. Will I lose marks for this?? I never actually said for example the value equals 2.61 to 3sf, and then say that this equals 2.6 to 2sf (which is the value I have to show that).

I don't think you'd lose any marks, but if you did - it'd only be 1 mark.
