    Lets denote the probability of getting any oher number except a five by k. Then we know that the sum of the probabilities of a number is equal to 1. We know from the question that the probability of getting a 5 is twice as likely i.e. 2k. So
    2k+k+k+k+k+k=7k 7k=1. Therefore k=1/7.
    So the probability of getting a five is 2/7. The probability of getting a 5 on the sixth throw is (5/7)^5*(2/7).

    Don't worry it won't - a situation where you have to model things by continuous uniform are usually fairly obvious.

    The events A and B are such that P(A)=0.2 and P(A u B)=0.6

    Find (a) P(A' n B')

    (b) P(A' n B)

    Given also that events A and B are independent find:

    (c) P(B)

    (d) P(A' u B').


    Can someone help me out with this S1 Question?? :confused:

    The boundaries for an A* depend on the paper.

    TBH I'd much rather have the most easiest paper in the world with the highest boundaries as I very rarely make a mistake in S2.

    If the paper is easy then the boundaries wil go up depending on how everyone else performed.
