iirc these were the inequalities:

x ≥ 5
y ≥ 5
x + y ≤ 32
2x + 3y ≤ 72
x ≥ 2y
Cheers. Wasn't it 2x≥y though?
2. Can someone remind me what the Chinese postman questions were for part (b) and (c)?

Did anyone else get P=£515 for the last question? I think I got X=21 and y=10, which gave £515
I got that answer

The question said "x is atleast twice as many as y" which I'm sure is x ≥ 2y. So if for example y is 50 then x is 100, which is twice as many.

Nah cause it said X had to be at least twice at large as y
6. Is the answer to the last question £520?

I got that too, was your x = 24 and y = 8?

ahhhh i see thx.

so i plotted 2x>y but got the correct subsequent x and y values (24 and 8) and correct profit

how many marks do u think I dropped?
M1 for wrong line
A1 for wrong feasible region?

Wrong line, Wrong FR, Wrong Inequality (first part of Q) so probably 3

I'm looking at the June 2015 paper and from the looks of it you probably lost only 2 (B1) marks, which is fine.

EDIT oh yeah another for getting the inequality wrong for the question before lol

I know I got 8 and 20 something
I had a double exam today so my brain is fried so can't remember most the answers

I did and someone else earlier in the thread did but apparently it's wrong, should've been £520 or something.

I assume it will carry ft marks though for reading the wrong points...maybe...I didn't look at Decision mark schemes a lot before the exam
17. Most people got £520 in my class
18. any *UMS ideas for 65 raw?

I got £505 too, the last section was 3 marks so we should pick up atleast 1 ft mark.

83 UMS imo, 62/63 for an A
