I have been given a copy of some sample questions for the government's revised GCSE maths curriculum.

I am a member of a club with a membership fee of £1,000 per year. However, I have negotiated a 20% discount. If I decide to leave the club, how much do I save each year?

a) £200
b) £800
c) £1,000
d) £350 million


I employ 50 people. I recruit five new members of staff. Five existing staff tell me that they were thinking of leaving but have changed their mind. How many new members of staff do I have?

a) 0
b) 5
c) 10
d) 50,000


In the UK, 44% of the vote is said to represent a clear mandate. What share of the vote represents a clear mandate in Scotland?

a) 45%
b) 90%
c) 50,000%
d) 350,000,000%


A party gains 7.5% of the vote at an election and wins 12 seats. At the next election the same party gets 12% of the vote. Under a fair electoral system, how many seats do they win?

a) 11
b) 18
c) 78
d) 50,000

No.3 is surely a trick question as Scotland's in the UK so it should be the same.
