    Default Maths

    Thank you Rebbonk, I though it might be best to start a new thread for Math problems and go from here.

    Q7 he needs 7/35ths of a litre which equals 0.2l: which just happens to be 200ml

    Q8 [(Selling price-cost price)/cost price]*100

    [(3.90-2.60)/2.60]*100...... [1.30/2.60]*100........ =50%

    I hope this makes some sort of sense Margaret?

    Edit to correct my misread figures

    Q8 could also be calculated by (profit/cost price)*100.... (1.30/2.60)*100 = 50%

    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Thank you Kindly, Rebbonk I'll get him to have a look at it, when he gets home. He will get round to join the forum.

    Yes, you did thank you Rebbonk. by looking at your workings, I think he can see where he went wrong and worked it out again. It is always helpful to have someone else look at it. You are still pretty sharp minded..

    If I can ever help, please feel free. - I have a very 'odd' set of qualifications and experience.

    He needs a total of 20 1/2 hour blocks for each job, I assume that breaks/lunch are not fixed.

    That's how I'd work it, assuming I've understood the question properly

    Thanks , Rebbonk. I think he says there as more to the answer, of course you are right but I don't think he explained properly all of the question. I shall pm you.
