    65800621[/url]]You were told they were independent so P(AnB)= P(A) x P(B) then rearrange. I almost forgot to add the value at the bottom of the circle, maybe you did that?
    Holy crap 😊

    Grade boundary predictions anyone?

    I think I got 63-65/75, just hoping it's a mid-high A :/

    I'd say pretty standard, if anything slightly lower boundaries.

    Well, E(x) is the sum of x over n, right?

    E(1/x) is the sum of 1/x over n.

    (p(X = x)( (Σ1/x) )/n is not the same as (p(X = x)(1/( (Σx)/n ))
    To maybe simplify this explanation with an example, the gist of the reason is that Σ(1/x) is not equal to 1/(Σx).

    For instance, take two values: x = 2 and x = 3.
    1/(Σx) = 1/(2+3) = 1/5
    Σ(1/x) = 1/2 + 1/3 = 5/6
    So the two are completely different.

    Thanks, I was struggling to get that across without huge amounts of brackets

    The question was 3 marks. In the worst case, no, you'd get 0/3 (1 mark for saying it's a bad model; another for saying mean =/= median; a third for comparing d to the actual answer).

    You didn't compare your answer to part (d) to anything, but the question explicitly told you to, so you've definitely lost a mark there. I'd give you 1/3 but maybe if they're generous you'd get 2/3.
    Thanks

    Looks like some threads were merged together. Whoever is now the OP, can you make a poll with number of marks people think they got? helps with predicting. glad-he-ate-her

    65-70
    60-65
    55-60

    Ok, I managed to get all my answers stored in my calculator at the end, this is what I got. Not 100% sure on all of them, but we can compare.

    e. Increase - I tried using the variables from the new week and recalculating r, and it was higher than the original. I said because the values were both higher than the means; I'm not sure at all on this one.

    Mate there was a VERY similar question in one of the past papers, fortunately did it the night before hahah - You just had to subtract the value they gave from 1 to get 0.18, and "P(X<u)" is just the mean, and the mean represents 0.5 in a normal distribution model; therefore 0.18/0.5 = 0.36.

    I'm pretty sure I got it wrong haha but ill add your answer and others' so people can discuss it.
    This is the definition of standard deviation : a quantity expressing by how much the members of a group differ from the mean value for the group.

    Therefore if there is another value in the data and it is the same as the mean, overall the data should be less weighted away from the mean.

    I might be wrong but..

    Considering how easy the paper was...

    72 - A
    70 - B
    12 - C
    8 - D

    etc etc, you get the pattern
