# SS02 Sampling question

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. In the aqa textbook it says 'Select 2 digit random numbers. Divide each one by 42, take the remainder and choose corresponding claims (e.g. if 44 is selected, claim 02 would be chosen)' I dont understand how they get 02. Because 44 ÷ 42 = 1.047619048
2. Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here.

Which textbook/or post a picture of the question/answer as i don't see how they got 02 either. Surely it would be 04/05.
