medium packet was the best value??? thats what i put
Small packet was the best value mate
2. when is the leaked paper and solutions coming
3. Interquartile Range for the graph question was 11
4. I got 79.9 for the last question and in checking it worked for the area?? Would I get any marks?
For the stratified sample did anyone else get 11?
I got 10 because you can't have 10.8 people
6. Just realised i put 30 bars instead of 3 - how many marks would I be likely to get for this question? I wrote 3 down, and just screwed up what i put in the answer box
7. wheres mr kibria? or whatever his name is

yeah don't you skip the zero?
Reps are not necessary but would be appreciated

It would be really useful if you could remember the question numbers
1. Order numbers correctly and include a key
b) 0.45
2a. 30abc
b. 3(y+2)
c. x^2-3x
3. Smallest packet was best value for money because it was cheapest per bag of crisps
4. Green- 0.09 Red- 0.36
5. Ratio 4:3
b. New height 480
6. x= 9.25
7a. 20.3
b. 68.04kg
c. 2.61m

OH yeah I got 124!
I got 126

(5-2)*180/5

Then that divided by 2 to get 54 and 54
360-108/2= 126??

Not sure

You can round up.

Oh f**k, I got 47.5! How did you get that? I used 1/2absinc, cosine rule and then sine rule - and triple checked it
I did: 0.5 x 8 x 7 x sin(c) = 18
18/0.5 x 8 x 7 = sin (c)
so sin-1(ans.)=40.005

Then I used the cosine rule to find side c which = 5.22 or something

Then I used the sine rule to find x:

sin(x)/8 = sin(40.005)/5.22
sin(x) = sin(40.005)/5.22 x 8
sin-1(ans.)
=80.4.

I can't remember exactly which sides were which, but that was the general method and answer I got
16. how did everyone get their answer to the last question? because i used the cosine rule and the sine rule, so wondering if theres a simpler way.
17. For the ratio question I wrote in my working out 4 : 3 but on the answer line I wrote 4/3, will I still get full marks on that question?

I got 10 because you can't have 10.8 people
It's 11 because 10.8 rounds up not down
19. (Original post by mRubern)
I put 30 for the trigonometry one would i get the marks? also what did everyone get for changing the subject?
y = 5p^2 - x
20. Could anyone tell me what the question was for the bounds? I forgot what I put
