    To the person claiming rational/irrational has been dropped....er no it hasn't. St Dev has.

    That paper was very easy I thought. Easier than non-calc (for me, they always are). I checked everything through about 3 times because I had quite a lot of time left so I am very confident!

    i got 17 for the reasons explained in other posts
    i think we need to stop with the van question, as there is no way of showing which is right
    No, you are right. It Was 17.

    Why would they have specifically added the 'safely' bit? Its obvious that you have to round down in these situations, so the 'safely' wasn't refering to that. It was there to empahsise that the space available had to be the lower bound (1150) and the blocks had to be the upper bound (55).

    Yea, but it said "if his assumptions are correct, what's the most he could safely get in" or somthing I think. Which means that if he was right and it is to 2sf and 1sf or whatever then the most he can get in is 22.

    3.3

    A lot of people put 3.4 because it LOOKED (superficially) closer to 24, because it was 25.something when 3.3 was 22.something. But 3.3 was right...(yay, patting myself on back)

    The "safest" thing to do is take the truck lower boundary and the block higher boundary. Because you must assume that the truck carries a certain weight and it will be more unsafe if you take the higher boundary...cos then more blocks will fit (with the resultant calculation) even if the truck isn't able to carry the load. And taking the lower block boundary would also be more unsafe because the blocks COULD be heavier than the lower boundary.

    So you do the LOWER truck boundary divided by the HIGHER block boundary.....i.e. 1150/65 = 17.69.... = 17 blocks.

    But many got it wrong suggesting that qu was very badly worded....so working marks will be handed out willy nilly I presume
