You won't loose 4 whole marks, unless you just guessed

427 is not 47/110.

Did everybody get 0.729 for the last question? (all 3 passing)
Just 0.7

Nobody passing is 0.1. 3 people = 0.3.
1-0.3 = 0.7.
I think.

'Twas 0.4270270270270 to my knowledge, though I'm attempting to get it out of my mind right about now.
I dont think there were any zeros in it.

I got 0.729, because failing was 0.1. So, passing was 0.9. So, three people passing was 0.9x0.9x0.9. I hope that's right.

OK, tell me if I'm wrong, but in the last question, the chance of failing in both tests was 1/10 (1/4 x 4/10). If 3 people do it, the chances of them failing every time is 0.1 x 0.1 x 0.1 = 1/1000? OH ****, I just realised I answered with the chance of a failure each time. So the chance of all three being successful was 999/1000?

Seriously everybody found it hard ?

It was easy (or as much as a higher tier paper can be expected to be). Seriously, I answered all the questions eventually, and cant think of any that I felt I had done wrong. It was all at least reasonable - vectors, graphs factorising, cylinders, probablilty - the lot!

I did get 0.75t+0.25s whoever asked (for the vectors).

Looky here S(andy) Taylor. Since you are a boy genius you will have found it easy. However, most found it hard. My head nearly spontaneously combusted in that exam

I did

To answer everyone else, no I do believe that the recurring decimal was 0.42727272727, nothing else.

The 0.4 bit at the start was just to make it hard.

I thougth that, but when multiplying the success probablilties you get 0.729. I believe 1/1000 doesnt fulill all the criteria or something.

I got 0.729. I thought some of the last questions were easier than some of the middleish questions!!

ok, ok, we all know it was bad, lets move on to other revision and see when we get the results.... BTW, i got 47/110 for the fraction/recurring question... and 20000-5000pi for the crate...

I think.
Chance of one person failing = 0.1

Chance of one person passing = 0.9

Chance of pass AND pass AND pass = 0.9 * 0.9 * 0.9

= 0.81 * 0.9

= 0.729

Damn, think i could get any marks for 0.7? Cos it's close... lol

Not as I see it im afraid.

The recurring decimal was 0.42727272727...

Remember the '4'

Let the decimal = x

1000x = 427.272727272727...
990x = 423
It must be 990 to get rid of the four (10x = 4.27272727...)

x = 423/990
x = 141/330

x = 47/110

Thats what I get.
Yeah you're right.

yeah it is.
(0.42727272727 x 1000)-(0.42727x10)=423
423/990=141/330=47/110
