When working out percentages and the exam doesnt ask for 'to one decimal place' or 'to two decimal places' which is the best one to use please?
Sometimes the answers are at one place, some times to two places.
Wish next week was over with already.

    Hi ^^

    My tutor has said that as long as we stick to the same method throughout (ie 1 dp or 2dp) then it doesn't matter. The marker will have to go through using the answers that you have written down, (as they should do in the case of follow through marks)

    I always tend to go to 2dps though, for a bit more accuracy.

    Good luck with your exams!!
