Basic maths question help

mathsnogood

Hi guys, I'm new here and wondering whether any of you kind smart folk could help me out with these admittedly somewhat easy questions. I struggle with maths and want to make sure my answers are correct. If this is in the wrong section, then mods please move.

I have had technical difficulty uploading high quality images, so please find attached a link that goes to the source of the questions. http://www.ieb.co.za/NSC%20Examination%20Papers/QuestionPapers2017/Mathematical%20Literacy%20P1%202017.pdf I only need help with the whole of Question 3 and then only question 5.1/ 5.2 / 5.3 / 5.6 AND finally 5.8.

You can find an appendix to question 3 at the following link http://www.ieb.co.za/NSC Examination Papers/QuestionPapers2017/Mathematical Literacy P1 Appendix 2017.pdf.

This should be a walk in the park for most of you, but I really need your help on this one.

Thanks again.

The images you attached with the questions on them are completely unreadable.

You need to attach larger versions.

Hi Romsek,

Thanks for letting me know. Will sort it out now.

I assume the questions can be seen here.

5.8 As 5/0.15 = 33.333..., the answer is 33. If the division had given exactly 33, the answer would have been 34 (assuming the final planting could occur against the far edge).
