Question 21 was definitely 25/84 not 1/4 like you said. You should change it so that it's correct.

Hi, Can you maybe tell us how you got 1637 for the spheres question?
Wasn't the question: The cube has a side length of 4.5cm correct to the nearest 0.5cm and the sphere has a radius of 3mm correct to the nearest mm. Calculate the maximum number of spheres that can be made from the cube.
Therefore the answer would be: (Upper bound for the volume of the cube)/(Lower bound of the volume of the sphere)
UB of length of the cube: 4.55cm
LB of the radius of the sphere: 0.25cm (note I converted to cm here)
Answer: (4.55x4.55x4.55)/(4/3xπx0.25^3)= 1439.21
Therefore only 1439 spheres can be made from the cube. I know I might be wrong but I cannot find any way of getting 1637 spheres. Could you please post how you got your answer?

last question was 188
probability one was 0.298
angles one was 63
cube and sphere one was 1637
all definitely correct

The only ways to pick out three of the cards and get a total of 6 were to pick out a 1, 2 and 3; or to pick out 2,2 and 2.
The former can be achieved by picking them out in 1 of six orders:
1,2,3
1,3,2
2,3,1
2,1,3
3,1,2
3,2,1
To find out the probability of each of these scenarios, this is how you do it:
(2/9)*(3/8)*(4/7) = 1/21
Since there are 6 of them, multiply 1/21 by 6 = 2/7 (which is what you did)
However you forgot that by picking out three 2's, a total of six could be achieved.
The probability of this is (3/9)*(2/8)*(1/7)=1/84
1/84 + 2/7 = 25/84

Guys, if I made the cumulative frequency graph like bar chart, what will I get for the graph itself and the interquartile range question?

I have done it the same way and got the same answer, but I think that the upper bound for cube side length was 4.75 instead of 4.55, that's where the answer comes from.
