maths question simplifyingWatch this thread
It depends how many marks the question was. If it's 4 and it specified 'in its simplest form', you'll probably lose two: one method mark for simplifying and one answer mark for a wrong final answer. If it's 3, you'll probably only lose one. Was this for GCSE?
in the exam on friday, for the recurring decimals to fraction question i'm pretty sure i simplified my answer wrong, however i put both the unsimplified (correct) and simplified (incorrect) answer on the answer line. will this cancel out all my marks or just take one off?
