what are you doing up on the internet at 10.23pm???
Asking maths questions I Guess.
Dr Shah's car is 5m long thats the average of all 4 cars in the parking bay.The council wants to build a new bay leaving 2cm each side in each car space.
How long is the new bay going to be
On the whole I think its quite a nasty question.
right 4 cars
now they could mean 5x4 + 3x0.02, ie 4 cars with 2 cm between them..
but it does say 'in each car space' which to me means one of those white rectangles .. so each space would be 5m + 0.04m (2cm each side
so the total would be 5.04 x 4 or 20.16m
