How do I work out the percentages of a box & whisker plot!!

Also, worth remembering that on the box plot the only points you know for certain are outliers/or max/min the quartiles (and median)
Formula for skewness of quartiles ?
also, don't forget if you get asked on skewness, see what they were asking you to find earlier in the question, as this will give you a big clue as to which measure you should use (eg mean vs median, or quartiles or shape of box plot or formula)
3. Is (AuB)' the same thing as (AnB)' as shown in this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6t0994ZZDA Thanks in advance and good luck everyone!

How does coding work with the mean, variance and standard deviation?
For mean it usually works by just substituting the value into x and you work it out normally. However, for standard deviation, when doing a code that is for example (x-100)/5, you ignore the -100 as it is not affected (I forgot why but I'm pretty sure that's what you do) - so you do (standard deviation)/5. For variance, I'm not sure they'll ask us to code the variance but I think it's a similar concept to standard deviation, unless you're talking about Var(X) or something like that.
5. For your answers do you guys give them to 3sf or 2 dp or how do you answer the questions, because i uasually get long answers!

Coding does not affect product moment correlation coefficient
Mean {E (X )} is affexted by + × ÷ -
Variance { (Var (X) } is affexted by only ÷ ×

Yeah I guess so but you would usually write (AuB)' = A'nB'
8. What definitions do we have to know?
E.g sample space
Normal distribution prabability

dya reckon it will be an easy or a hard paper?
harder than diamond

NO!!. Your (A intersect B)' is not what he is drawing.
He is drawing A' intersect B' these are different
If in doubt in the exam, translate the maths notation to what it reads in regular english

Disadvantages: partial description of real situation, only works for restricted range of values

Oh god, I'm starting to get confused - I always thought (Anb)' was the same thing as A' intersect B'.
What would (AnB)' be then??

well A intersect B is just the bit where the 2 overlap.
If you then 'Not' it you are left with everything else

He was drawing (A union B)'
So it's right.
Also for (A intersection B)' do you colour in everything except for the intersection (so is A and B also coloured)?
18. For b of this question, what does the question mean? What is it asking us to do?
I've looked at the markscheme and exam solutions but I still don't understand.

I didn't say he wasn't right. What you wrote in your post was not what he was drawing in the intersection part of the video. That's why I said be careful
20. Quick last minute stress question..
Say e(x) = 3 and var(x)=2

Find e(2x^2+3x)

Would this be
var(x) = E(x^2)-E(X)^2
Therefore E(x^2) is 11
making e(2(11)+3(3))
Resulting in the final answer being
31
