1. [QUOTE=TheMathsMan;65872130]w = 11 because they tell you the float is 1 so 17 - w - 5 = 1 therefore w = 17-5-1 which is 11
z = 4 because that was the shortest going back when the early was 3 ..
y = 17
x = 22
so you got 2 out of the 4 right ...

I had X as well bro - 22 was always in there. I'm usually good with float so I think I got 11. At least 3/4
3. I didn't do too bad ... but I mucked up on a few ... like the linear programming .. I put y + 3/2x whereas you'all are saying 3/2y + x which makes more sense ... I was rushing and I don't read properly when I'm rushing .. that resulted in me losing a further 5 marks from the next few questions ... then I lost 3 marks for leaving the 2nd gannt chart ... then I lost about 1 mark for not answering the second part to the flowchart question ... I answered the which one should be x but not the one after that. I lost 2 more marks because of a stupid mistake I made that I don't want to share ;-P so that leaves ... 64/75 which is me being generous so I'd say I got 60 which I'm satisfied with unless the examiners are complete ass holes and they mark incredibly harshly like they did for my AS's

Im pretty sure it was 12

It think it was11. Because D had a float of 1. Therefore, it was 17-?-5=1

.............which gives 11.

Exactly what I got
6. How many critical activities? 4? And which?
7. What was the route length for the first part of chinese postman?

How many critical activities? 4? And which?
Yeah I had 4 critical values .. sure about that being correct
9. (Original post by Nikhilm)
Anyone remember a 459?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Yeah from Chinese postman - people saying it's 460 though :/

I messed up on bin packing FFS! Harshly 1/5
Algorithm I don't think the answer is about it going negative - it's about it always being odd - of so that's another 2.
Prim's I rushed like mad so harshly 1/4
Probably dropped marks on the network 2/5 harsh as possible.
Question 7: blergh probably 8 marks harshly.
Question 8 : 7 harshly
Absolute minimum is around 50. Hopefully error carried forward and methods mean I could scrape 60. Averaging that out so realistically 55-57. Damn
12. I swear it's physically impossible to finish that d1 paper in time

I think you got the points wrong for -x+24y=24 i got points (0,1) (24,2) not sure if this is right but gave me a final answer of 11 and 4
This is what I got!

People on the SR can be wrong .. I would tell you the correct answer but I don't remember my own after suffering a major headache after looking at the brain **** that was this paper .. If you remember the weight of the network for route inspection then I can tell you.
15. (Original post by TheMathsMan)
Yeah I had 4 critical values .. sure about that being correct
Was there a question asking to state how many?

The weight was 384 and I remember getting a 75 which totalled 459. Then for the second i used 35 to get 419

No but you needed to know them for the gannt chart

Oh yeah .. I remember .. that is absolutely correct I'm sure of it
