LOL I knw what I did is soooo wrong. I just completely forgot it was a cumulative distribution. Only 2 marks. I just couldn't think of anything.
But I'll still hopefully end up getting around 63/75 after looking at the worked solutions, which will hopefully be an A.
Haha, fair enough, but regardless of whether its cumulative or not, the basic algebra is so off at almost every step that it would be tough to award any marks. And k=13 was printed on the paper, so they might not give you anything for the last line.

Either way I don't want to screw up your hope in future exams, good luck with the rest you have.

You get error carried forward, so as long as method is correct then you will get all marks for further parts to the question

Would I get a mark for writing 'a discrete random variable' for when they ask 'State the name of this probability distribution.'?

No, I made the same mistake. It HAS to be uniform.

Hi Arsey,

Quick question with regards to 4c:

I did P(L>133 | L>127) = P(127< L < 133) / P(L>127)

And then inserted the values. How many marks would this gain me? 1?

Thanks!

yes
For the probability distribution question, is it ok if I set it out in terms of decimals? So like 0.35 instead of 14/40, 0.175 instead of 7/40 etc. ?

Quick question guys do you think I'll lose marks for the probability distribution for B (question 6a) if I wrote the x values of 1 and 3 and 5 separately e.g X 1 1 3 3 5 5 and then the probability of each 1/6 as opposed to what's done in the model answers (joining them all together) ???
cos they way I did it isn't wrong just not well done!

Say if in a question I get part A wrong which is worth 2 marks

Then in part B I use the answer I get in part A to get answer, which is worth 2 marks.

Will I only lose 2 marks for part A, so I would get 2/4 in total?
