How can you stop using social media? I have my gcsd this year and i want to study is there any good revesion techniques other than shutting of my phone because i feel like that it does not help me is there any other useful apps to help me study?

I found an app called ‘Flora’ really useful. I don’t know if you’ve heard of ‘Forest’ (the two are linked together), but it is the free version of it. What happens is, within the app, you set an amount of time that you want to revise for or just spend time off of your phone, and if you successfully complete that amount of time without coming off the app then you add points towards growing a tree.... more

How do you write a long essay in an exam, when you don't have much time? How do you include enough detail, but not over do it and lose time? How do you write succinctly and get your point across clearly?

History

Asked by Jaedon · 2 years ago

Mdm holimah had some flour. She used 20% of the flour to bake a cake and 30% of the flour to bake some cookies. A)what percentage of the flour did she have left. B)what fraction of the flour did she use to bake a cookie?

A)So the total of the flour overall is 100%. 20% was used to bake the cake, and 30% for cookies, so 20+30=50%. To work out what percentage is left, we take away the used amount from the overall percentage, i.e. 100-50=50%. B) A percentage is a number out of 100, e.g. 100%=100/100, 50%=50/100 etc. So she used 30% of the flour to bake cookies: 30%=30/100. Then we need to simplify this fraction:... more
