# Is this correct? watch

Announcements
1. Hi,
This was a question on an exam paper and I was wondering if how I have drawn it would score any marks at all? You might have to zoom in on the image to see it as it hasn't scanned in very well.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

2. That's correct
3. Would they expect it to be drawn exactly accurate without any mistakes?
4. Thanks for looking by the way
5. I think you've shown that you can do all parts of the question - although why haven't you written down the coordinates of the midpoint?
6. i think i messed the mid-point up but I wanted to check that the circle was right as its about 3 marks in total. Would I get the marks for that?
7. You have drawn it exactly accurate without any mistakes, I should imagine you will have +- 0.5 leway. The centre is correct too but you haven't written in the coordinates.
8. would the co-ordinates be 2, 5 ?

Surely the mid-point is 7,6.
10. i don't think i got the mid-point. Its only 1 mark though.
11. The mid point is the point that is half way between A & B. You drew it correctly on the graph, its just a matter of looking what the coordinates are. Follow the line down from the midpoint and you will find the x coordinate is 7 - do the same with the y coordinate.

That is correct.

Ah, the ease and simplicty of GCSE maths

EDIT: the mid-point is (7,6) if you wanted to know
13. Would I score 3 out of 4 marks for that then?

I was also wondering if a question was worth say 3 marks and the ones were for method, if you got the answer right would you be given full marks anyway with or without working?
14. At GCSE probably, although its best to always show working as then if you make a mistake you may still get some marks.
15. I did show my working out on all of the questions but just wanted to see whether that was the case.
16. I was wondering would I definetly get the marks for the circle question?

I was also wondering about some others: It says:

Here is a sequence of numbers:

1 2 4 8 16

(i) What is the rule for continuing this sequence?

I put that the rule of the sequence is that it doubles each time.

Would that be correct?

Also,

Which is fraction is greater 3/10 or 3/11

Explanation = Because 3/10 = 0.3 and 3/11 = 0.27 and I said that 0.3 has greater place value, the 3 does than the 2.

Would those be correct? That was worth 2 marks.
17. Anyone able to help at all?

Always show working.It makes it much easier to double-check your answers in the last few minutes of an exam.
