For the 4 mark binomial question where it was X ~ B(50,0.8) for p(35<X<45) the standard method is to change it to X' ~ B(50,0.2) and change the ranges. However, I used the graphical calculator to just work out X ~ B(50,0.8) for p(35<X<45) and got the same answer as OP says. Anyone think I will lose marks here?

I can't remember the exact question, so I will try to explain as best as I can.
There were 4 outcomes, two pairs of which were the same. As you were estimating from the sample, you divide each outcome from the total in the sample (500). Multiply them together, then multiply by 6 as this was the number of ways of arranging them.
This came down to the following calculation:
{[(17628)/500]^2} x {[(14063)/500]^2} x 6 = 0.030786 = 0.0308
Sorry this is a general answer and not specific, however I have forgotton most of the wording of the question

What about question 3b? I got 0.007.... or something less than 0.01.
And the last question about the claims? The first claim is valid or not?? I just directly multiplied the c.i by 1.20 and said it is valid because 400 is within the new c.i. But some students calculate the new c.i using the mean+standard error.
The second claim said at most 25% and i got 17.5%, so I said it is invalid because it can not get to 25% as the highest is 17.5%.

In the question where it gave 3 new values to calculate a mean etc, the question only had 2 unknown vales, can anyone tell me what they did there?

b.) Strong correlation blah blah
2.)a.)i.) 26
ii.) Median: 25, IQR: 2
b.) Mean and range
c.) Mean: 25.6, Range: 45
3.)a.)i.) 0.352
ii.) 0.136
iii.) 0.158
iv.) 0.792
v.) 0.267
b.) 0.00513
4.)a.) y= 181.3 + 3.0042x
b.) (context of gradient)
c.) 385
d.) I put the estimate was accurate as even though the residuals are large so are the values of Y but this could well be wrong.
5.)a.)i.) 0.941
ii.) 0.149

iv.) Unity

b.) Mean: 54, Var: 44.28
7.)a.) (257.92,377.08)
b.)i.) 381 not equal to 400 so not valid
ii.) 7/40 not equal to 0.25 so not valid (which is wrong, it IS valid but i didnt read the question properly)
Hope this helps, please point out if I went wrong somewhere which I'm sure i did in multiple places.Post rating:1

I apologise I do not remember many questions by this is what I have thus far. Contributions towards this and corrections would be welcomed  Thank you to everyone that contributed
AQA MS1B Unofficial Mark Scheme
Q1a) PMCC (r) calculation [3 marks]
r = 0.95(9..)
b) Interpret your value for r [2 marks]
Q2a i) Mode = 26 [1 mark]
ii) mean and range or SD [2 marks]
b) find the mean and range [3 marks]
mean = 25.6
range = 45
Q3) probabilities  different ages and bands 13
ai) 0.136
ii) 0.158
iv) 0.729
v) I can't remember [9 marks for part a]
b) 0.0308 [5 marks]
Q4) Normal distribution
a) P(X<1540)
ii) P(X<1535?)
b) P(1515?<X<1540)
Q5)Binomial distribution  loom bands
ai) P(Red loombands = 2)
(50C4) * (0.18)^4 * (0.82)^46 = 0.0262
ii) P( Y≤10) Calculate the probability at most 10 were yellow
Therefore X ~ B(50, 0.15)
P(Y≤10) = 0.8801
iii) P(green and purple< bands which gave you
X ~ B(50, 0.5)
Binomial
aiii) Something to do with green and purple bands which gave you
X ~ B(50, 0.5)
iv) P(35<W'&Y'<45)
=>X ~ B(50, 0.8)
For P(35 < X < 45)
(Therefore using the complementary event denoted by Y )
Y ~ B(50, 0.2)
P(6 ≤ Y ≤ 14) = P(Y≤14) – P(Y≤5) = 0.8913
b) Calculate the mean and variance for 300 red loom bands
μ = np → 300 * 0.18 = 54
σ² = np(1–p) → 54(1–0.18) = 44.3
Q6) Normal distribution
volume of the bottles in a pack of 6
mean 508.5 , SD= 9.6?
ai) P(X>505) [NOT SURE IF THIS IS ACTUALLY ai)]
Q7) confidence intervals people buying euros
a) calculate the limits to 2 dp
b) comment on the claim(s) that [3 marks]
i) ?
ii) 25% of the customers bought fewer than 200 euros
first claim invalid
2nd claim customers bought less than 200 euros
after the conversions of £ to euros and the calculation (no. of customers/n) this claim came to be valid
 I'm unsure of the exact percentage

I'm pretty sure both of the comparisons you had to make at the end were reasonable or seemed likely. The first you had to convert 400 euros into pounds. This was inside the confidence interval so it seems likely that the mean is that.
The second there was 8/40 that met the criteria giving a percentage of 20% which meant that the claim it was at most 25% also seemed likely.

I think you either missed out the question that you had to find the reduction in the value of mean or you got that wrong?
