4. I'm talking about Unit 1.

The last question had me stumped as I put 0 as my answer.
5. Unofficial Mark scheme:
1) What is wrong with the survey?

-The 0-3 option overlaps with the 3-5 option so If the user had stayed in 3 hotels, which box would he tick.
-The questionnaire limits you to 14 hotels and there needs to be an additional option for anyone who spent more than 13 hotels e.g. 15+

The following question was to re-create a Survey.

Question 2
64% of a school (or something like that) are girls, the rest are boys.
Represent this in a simplified ratio:

------some other questions------

Question 3:
Some guy is building a fence, how many metres can he do in so many hours. You just had to read off your line of best fit and answer was 7 metres.

------some other questions------

There was a question on Tees and Reward points:
Question was how much money in Pound does she gain and Answer was £6

------some other questions------

There was another question on Probability with Letters A and B or something, however the question was asking you how many were lost and the answer is 4.

------some other questions------

There was a question on Cumulative Frequency and It was asking how many students got a B and the answer was 14.

If you would like to compare any answers feel free to ask me as I have a strong memory for answers.

The only problem I have is was the last answer on Necklaces 0?

Really? Some of the 3 markers I found pretty hard, how did you prove the last question, and the solve 4x^ I didn't manage to answer. Also the surd one I got 9-squareroot(3) which I feel is wrong. Rearrange I ****ed up as well.
9. Sooo hard omg
10. ****ed up like 4 questions

Which question was that? I don't remember a plumbing one, was the last question proving a sphere was bigger than a cube?

I messed up the rearrange one too and for the last question I proved it using algebra and using the formula for the area of the sphere and then used a real number to prove it too
