E2.22 Extract information from lists, tables, diagrams and bar charts

Subject content [reformed] functional skills: Mathematics (DfE, Feb 2018): 

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/functional-skills-subject-content-mathematics

A good way for learners to understand the importance of using reverse calculations to check an answer to a previous question.  These check questions are appearing more and more in functional skills exams. I hope you find it as useful as  I and my learners do.
