    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

    Answer = 3 / 10

    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.

    Thank you,

    Those are correct.

    3/10 is bigger than 3/11 because the 3 is being divided by a smaller number (10)

    You could also put 3/10 and 3/11 under the same denominator.

    33/110 vs 30/110, therefore 3/11 is smaller
