Just for the record there was one silly mistake in my answers that I sent to you where I had made a mistake with 0.12 and converting this to a fraction.

The correct answer is in fact (3/25) as a fraction and not (6/25) so sorry about that.

The working for this might go as follows:

0.12 = 12 /100

12 /100 = 6 / 50

6 / 50 = 3 / 25

I wrote those out in a hurry.

Since Bob joined in with this you have improved, but I don't want to get too mad with excitement that you could pass GCSE. I am hopeful that in terms of everyday maths you are doing well and better than before. One thing we did think about is that maybe you should avoid doing the full GCSE and just try to benefit from the forum engagement to get you improved. To get a 'C' at GCSE for you is a tall order. I personally would recommend going full steam ahead towards learning basic maths.

I have sent you a spreadsheet of this, but it went through to your mobile. I will try sending it again if you like, but you can always just use the post above. Are you okay ?

Hi Mandy, what do you mean by the word "graphics" ?

Do you mean graphs ?

Here are two links to the maths is fun teaching website on graphs:

http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/bar-graphs.html

Graphics is used as a term in computing to refer to pictures, images, animation etc.
