About me

I have been tutoring professionally now for over a year. I am incredibly passionate about my students and have a genuine desire to see them succeed in their exams. I will put every minute of the lesson towards this goal. A survivor of both the GCSE and IB programmes, I believe I can help any student achieve the grades they deserve in the next level of their educational career.

Questions Isaac has answered

Complete Question won't fit here. Please see Explanation. Thanks.

Complete Question: Mr. Brown and his 2 children are going to London by train. An adult ticket costs £24 and a child ticket costs £12. Mr. Brown has a family rail card which gives his 1/3 off adult tickets and 60% off child tickets. Work out the total cost of the tickets when Mr. Brown uses his family Railcard.

Note: This question is taken from the June 2014 (morning) Foundation Edexcel paper, however I have also seen it (or similar) on Higher papers.

Answer:

a) 1 Adult: £24. Explain 1/3 off through the use of a pie diagram. Find that 1/3 is the same as 24/3 = 8. Therefore 1 Adult = 24-8 = £16.

b) 2 Children: 2*12 = £24. Explain 60% off through the use of a pie diagram - we recognize that this is the same as 40% of £24. Find that 24/10 = 2.4 and 2.4*4 = 9.6. Therefore 2 children = £9.60.

c) Total cost (with discounted price): 1 Adult + 2 Children. Find that (using long addition if necessary) 16 + 9.60 = £25.60.
