A rectangle 1m by 50cm has circular disc cut from it. Disc radius is 6cm. I gave the answer as 32 which earned the full 2 marks as you can fit 4 rows of 8. I undersatnd the area of rectangle shared by area of circle gives 44 (which is wrong) but was apparently worthy of one mark. What I don't understand is why the correct answer was given as 36 and why any integer value inbetween 32 and 36 was accepted fro full marks. I am guessing it might be possible to arrange the circles in such a way that 36 will fit but have no idea how to show this and cant believe it would be expected from a foundation student!!
