Not a large enough sample size; 10? students does not represent a general populous.
4. did anyone find that test hard or is it just me ?

What about the question where the answer is W=1.4 or 7/5
thats right mate me and majority of my mates got that
9. What was the answer to the standard form question? I think I got 1.75 X 10 to the 10
10. (Original post by carolinrev)
yass i got that !!!
Coordinates were (1, 2.5), (5, 7)

How can the midpoint be totally negative if the two points were positive(on the upper part of the graph??
Surely the midpoint would be somewhere near the coordinates right?
I put the midpoint was ( 3, 4.75)

This is very hard to visualise from words, any rough drawing for me to go off of?

7*10^8
13. what was the envelope question again and what was the answer
14. (Original post by mrpaper)
I'm pretty sure it is 0.76.
It asked for the probability of it not raining and the match not being cancelled.
I got 7.6/100
15. what was question 15
and how do you work out question 11
thanks.
16. Small triangle = 1/2 * root3/3 * root2/2 = root6 /12

Big triangle = 1/2 * root2/2 * root2/2 = 2/8 = 1/4

Shaded region = Big - Small

= 1/4 - root6/12

= 3/12 - root6/12

= (3-root6)/12
17. what was the probability tree answer
18. (Original post by #1Mathlete)
Not A*
a B. but don't worry, you can still get an A with 80% on the calculator paper
19. (Original post by Hello5553)
what was the envelope question again and what was the answer
Small packs (x) have 5 envelopes
Large packs (y) have 20 envelopes
Give a formula for total (T) number of envelopes

T=5x+20y

I put the midpoint was ( 3, 4.75)
It didn't ask for the midpoint. (1, 2.5) was the midpoint.
