I started AS biology this year and this is fine, but we got given a test the other day and I got 5/15 so my teacher is 'concerned' about me even though I am working my arse off. The test was virtually just on mitochondria and magnification questions. So I got most things wrong. Can anyone teach me how to do the magnification questions?!?! PLEASE

I have 2 teachers doing 1 topic with each. And I didn't think that everything else was difficult, just this bit

Essentially, what you need to remember is the formula for magnification. Get it down and you'll find all magnification questions much simpler. I like to use I AM triangle. Cover the variable you're trying to find with your finger and then use the other two to calculate the answer. If the uncovered variables are on the same level multiply; if one is higher than the other then divide. It's very straightforward and it'll definitely help you if you ever forget.
