      Ah okay! I was kind of confused on Q3. I realized that there were no cows, that's why I said that I was not able to determine it. Thanks! :)

      Rani - you have 5/6. Well done (you'll see why below).

      Go to the top of the class!

      Your algebra is very good!

      Q3 You get the next number by adding the previous 2 together (Fibonacci Sequence)

      Q6 Is a trick - there are no cows in the field! I'm going to accept your answer though.

      Hope you had fun - I did marking them!

      Luv your hubs. Comical and informative at the same time. If i am equal to Callum then i am in good company (in math that is) - he beats me otherwise.

      RESULTS DAY.

      Here are the correct answers to the test:

      Q1 y = 3/4 (0.75).

      Q2 x = 1 or 3.

      Q3 21.

      Q4 11.

      Q5 £210.

      Q6 0

      Callum 4/6

      Dave 4/6

      So, well done, both of you - you PASSED!

      But your algebra - both of you - is rubbish so we'll need to do remedial classes for the next year or so!

      The Headteacher is happy also - he says you'll keep the school's results looking good this session.

      Well done again!

      Ian.

      Don't know the answers to Q1, or Q2 (think they are unsolvable) but Q3 is 21; Q4 is 11; Q5 is 210, and Q6 is 0.
