    I think its because it must be open ended , and there is likelly to be peak times
    Ah, I think I put that it's not random, because different customers are likely to take out different numbers of books, e.g. because of different ages/preferences. And don't even remember my second point, something to do with it not being a constant average rate because they can only take out six books I think

    That's what I had put but other people did 2(0.35x0.45) which I guess makes sense?

    Ah yeah that's what I did, there were two ways of doing it so had to be doubled, Either customer could have been the one to purchase >3 or <3

    i'm fairly sure it's just 0.45x0.35. They're just two independent events so I think we're correct.

    Yeah that's what I thought too, one of my friends did 2(0.45x0.35) and said it was because of the 2 possible combinations but his explanation didn't really make much sense.

    You have to multiply (0.35 x 0.45) by 2 (2!). I'll try and briefly explain why this is below.

    If you have two people A and B borrowing books from the library, person A could borrow less than 3 books whereas person B might borrow more than three. The probability of this happening is 0.35 x 0.45 = 0.1575.

    However, what if person A borrowed more than 3 books and person B borrowed less than 3 instead? The probability of this happening would again be 0.1575.

    Since there are two possible combinations, the answer to the question is 2 x 0.1575 = 0.315.

    No you have to times it by 2! Which is just 2, because it could be .... The first person could have picked less then three , then the next more than three , or the first more than three and the second less than three . If you do it using a probabillity tree you can see it a bit clearer

    Yeah 2! is correct. If there were three people for example you would have 3! = 6 different combinations

    I said that might be a variety of answers (but I think I'm going to struggle to get a B made so many stupid errors )

    For 6bii would it be acceptable to say the calculated mean was above Island B's confidence interval? Therefore it suggests it cant be shorter than on the mainland.
