My maths may be wrong on 5 but am not sure however I have put Q 2 into a calculator and it gave me the answer I had instead of in the answer scheme. I also can not see how 8(a) is 2 and not 1/2 which would also make b wrong. I have practiced these questions over and over and can’t seem to make the answer scheme fit?

Q2 you must follow BODMAS and do addition

in bracketfirst. This gives 7/4 + 3/8 which is 14/8 + 3/8 = 17/8. Multiply by 2/7 to get 17/28.Q5 Factorises to (7 – x)(1 + x) = 0

Q8(a) Using your gradient formula (the right way round!!) gives (3-(-7))/(4-(-1)) which is 10/5 = 2. Then answer to (b) follows.

Good luck today!!
