Yes, so 3643 to the nearest 10 is 3640 or 3.64kg. NOT ^^^^^

It's amazing the level of teaching in this country!

2 hr 30 is to the nearest 10 mins isnt it?:thinking:

I should know :lol:

no

halfway between 25 past and 30 minutes past is 27.5 (27 minutes 30 seconds)

28 minutes is greater than 27.5 so therefore it gets pushed up to 30 minutes

which means 2 hours 30 mins

simples.

ohh err:oops:

Just because it says to the nearest 5 mins it desn't have to end in 5, just a multiple of it, i.e 30

:whistling: glad we got the the right answer in the end :thumbsup:

you all clear now OP?!

and this ^

btw OP
