2) fractions - 4 7/8 (3 marks)
3)125 surface area of cube is 150 cm2 find the volume (4 marks)
4) frequency polygon (2 marks)
5) pressure(cylinder) question- 3 (3 marks)
6) 20% holiday question - £1200 ( 2 marks)
7)the pentagon question -140degrees (3 marks)

If you guys can remember anymore answers or think that any of the ones I've added so far are wrong then I'll edit it !
How many marks were for circle theorem
And if I wrote 39 how many marks can I get
For number 2 i thought it asked for it as a mixed number??
What was the question for number 2?

Nooo did it ! I think my mind might of got mixed up with the definition of mixed number then 🥲

it was subtracting decimals, i thought it said to leave it as a mixed number though so i got 4 and 7/8

7 3/8-2 1/2
That's calm
What did youse get for the last question?

Circle theorem was 39 tho hes wrong.
If I wrote 4 and 14/16 for mixed fractions instead of 7/8 is it still correct

My bad it's just cause I saw a lot of other people get 71 and someone shared their working too. Just wondering how you got 39?

Yes 4 and 7/8
39 is wrong

Basically, its alternatesegment theorem to get 51 on the part of the shape thats touching the tangent, then you subtract that from 90 to get 39.

Ohhhh yeah I remember getting that too- but I changed it at the end 🥲 wait I'll share the picture of the person who got 71's working out
for the carrots and tomatoes one, instead of solving it with 9c = 5t i accidentally did 5c = 9t, do you think i would get any carry through or method marks? i solved the rest of it using simultaneous equations and would have got the right answer other than that mistake
