It's for some a level transition work I'm doing and I'm struggling a little with the microscopy part.

Thank you

Thank you Relationships & health
You are right to struggle!

I am in year 12 doing A-Level biology, I don't think it is possible to solve this question.

I think it should say somewhere on the microscope image what magnification it was taken at. Then you would multiply the lens magnification by the eyepiece lens to calculate the total magnification.

Also, that makes 2c impossible to do likewise, as you would need the magnification to calculate the actual size by using the magnification question for GCSE.

In summary, I wouldn't worry as I don't know how you would do it - plus most colleges won't actually mark this booklet - they will just flick through it.

Good luck with your GCSE results.

Thank you very much- I wondered whether that might be the case so it's great to have someone more knowledgable confirm it!
Hope everything's going well with home learning for you.
