Mr Powell Sir, I got 8/9 A*  Q5 wrong

http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/quiz/2014/aug/21/would-you-have-passed-gcse-maths

I got 8/10 Q 8 & 10 wrong

I even got 5/10 on the French quiz and "mon francais est tres mauvais".

Maths - 10/10 - to be honest, I'd expect the average 13 year old to get at least 6 of those. But I'll leave Ashley to explain how to do Q10, which I had to make an educated guess at.

French - I hope they speak English in the place we're staying at in Paris!

I got 6 at the mixed one which I was pretty pleased with!

I'm doing the maths one now...

I also got 10 on the maths one - some of them seemed too easy to be GCSE and some too hard!

The probability one was fiddly and I used a bit of paper. You have to work out the probability of each combination by multiplying together and then add up the possibilities:

Egg/cheese = 4/11 x 5/10 = 20/110
Egg/ham = 4/11 x 2/10 = 8/110

etc.
