    Awful.

    Thought I'd been given the wrong paper altogether. Didn't finish, couldn't finish it if I was given another 90mins.

    Hope you all feel better than I do.

    Q1 on June 13 paper we just sat, the standard deviation stays the same after converting °F to ° C right ?????????
    so sd= 15.7 or something like that?
    Yep standard deviation remians the same as of course does the mean.

    Data you have is not altering, just a conversion applied to each number.

    That venn diagram question was so weird... Never seen 4 events in a venn diagram before... I drew B in the middle, then F, H and C are all linked to B, but F, H and C are mutually exclusive so F, H and C does not overlap. Don't really know what figures are inside B...

    I got a - number so i know im wrong and thinking of it i believe it doesnt change as well.
    I got a minus number too like -8.something?

    Something similar was asked in June 2010 (q2b) and the answer was that the standard deviation does change.
    Still doesn't explain our minus answer though

    If all data is multiplied, standard deviation is also multiplied by that same scale factor.
    If all data has a number added to it, standard deviation stays the same.
    So you're meant to just multiply the standard deviation, not take away 32.

    If you changed all the fs to cs and recalculated the sd, then you've used the formula but not been efficient. What do you think the examiners would do with that?

    Agreed

    The standard deviation Is supposed to change by a factor of 5/9

    The minus 32 doesn't affect it

    Yeah I did a diagram with 3 separate rectangles for the 3 mutually exclusive events (F, H, and C) and then an oval going through all three for B.

    That's not right. When in Fahrenheit, the mean was 62 ish. When all the data is converted to Celsius, the values are between 3 and 30 ish, so the mean must change.
    This also applies to standard deviation, whist was 19.9 in Fahrenheit, this obviously is too high for values between 3 and 30.

    Estimate the value of r with a reason? For the first question

    What did you guys get?

    I stated it stayed the same as changing unit scaling has no affect

    I'm actually debating if I'm
    Wrong though 2marks

    That's what I got. The relationship between the values is still the same. (I also had half an hour left at the end of the exam, so converted all the values and checked r on my calculator :P )
