    i put 121 because i though that 120 would be when they were at the same place and 121 was when they overtook each other.
    This is why it was badly worded! Like anything >120 would be the point where they overtake, so idk why they didn't just ask for the point where they met. Bloody OCR

    Did anyone else put 0.1 for the probability of picking the apple greater 130kg or something like that? The histogram one

    1/10

    If not what did you put

    The 1 where it was like 5^y x 5^4 = 1 I got y = -4 cause anything ^0 is 1

    Don't know where you've got the 5/59 from? Unless the question said he took two and didn't take it back which would be correct😩 I just got 6/60 simplified to 1/10

    Oops! I did 60 x 60 for the denominator, that's stupid. Oh well I think I did the 6 x 5 bit write. Lets hope for method marks! I think it was 3 marks right? Thanks for explaining though!

    It's cause there are 60 apples and 6 are the given weight so when he takes one both numbers decrease by one to form 5 and 59 because it's the probability of him picking 2 apples and he doesn't put them back
