Question, with the question that had "15% of the base and FTS" was that 15% of base & 15% of FTS or was it 15% of base PLUS FTS?

You had to add I forgot what it was but like whatever the number was (like 850) + the small amount of like $5 for the thing... And then 15% of it. Not 15% of each. It was a weird question with lots of numbers but yeh...
Also could someone please reply as to whether it was c=120000/n

What about the question with the time zones for Singapore and Australia, did you get 140 mins (2hrs 20 mins) as there were 35degree difference in N,S
So 35degrees x 4 minutes = 140 minutes difference
And that question with the Simpsons rule was weird.. everyone i talk to got something different.. some in the 1000's, I got 2800 or something and some even got 4000+....

Time zones are based around longitude not latitude
