    For uniform distribution and p.d.f., Is P(X=x) always zero? Why? Doesn't the graph have a respective y value for all x?
    Probability is the area under the graph e.g. P(a<x<b) is the area between a and b. If you're trying to do P(X=x) then the width is 0 so the area is 0.

    Decent paper. Thought the wording was a bit strange at points.

    That 1% significance ****, the probability seemed awfully high for 0.01 sig level.
    The area of the circle.
    The last part of Q6 are the main parts I'm concerned about.

    For the value of k i forgot to multiply a by 3 so I got 1/33 instead of 1/9. Apart from that I think the rest was fine, so hopefully I got over 90 UMS and secured an A* in further.

    Yeah I got something between 0.2 and 0.3 and was doubting myself.
