    Without knowing the ins and outs of the syllabus, it is usually acceptable at that level to only give answers unless the question states otherwise (i.e. says show your working), however it is good practice to include it anyway, not least because if you get it wrong but have the correct method, you will only lose the mark awarded for the answer and not get zero for the whole question.
    If you go to university then some lecturers will ONLY award marks where the student has working consistent with the final answer, so it's good to get in the habit.
