I am not a mathematician but how about you post a picture of your answers so that a TSR mathematician can mark it?

Best advice is to post your proposed answers or working and then someone on here can check it for you :smile:

This thread is 2 years old - if you need help on the problem it would be best to start your own new thread with any working you've done as per TSR guidelines. Thanks :smile:
