    • +- 0.1 means the answer can be correct for 0.1 above or below the answer.

    +- 0.1 added after answer

    • +- 2% means the answer can be correct for 2% above or below the answer.

    answer has += 2% after it

    1. Alternatively, you can enable it so students can provide one of a multitude of different answers e.g. = [3.14, 3.15]

    Note: The answer ranges must be entered after the equal sign and the different answer options must be between square brackets.
