MARKING GUIDE

This guide is intended to be as helpful as possible to teachers by providing
concise solutions and indicating how marks could be awarded. There are
obviously alternative methods that would also gain full marks.
Method marks (M) are awarded for knowing and using a method.
Accuracy marks (A) can only be awarded when a correct method has been used.
(B) marks are independent of method marks.
