I believe there's a mistake:

the 3rd row is the 2nd pass, I believe the 3rd pass is incorrectly written.

Correct me if I'm wrong?

also,
anyone who has done the examination style paper from the text book (d1 edexcel),
do you know if number 3 b- the first-fit bin packing, has the wrong answer?
I got a different setting of the bins?

The bubble sort solution is correct.

Don't have the book for your second enquiry, post the question.

Sorry to say but that's correct as well, the first-fit algorithm is stated as follows:

Taking the boxes in the order listed, place the next box to be packed in the first available bin that can take that box.

I only checked up to the second pass because I misread. Anyway, yeah it should be A H J L R M S T Y

not A H L J R M S T Y

EDIT: The bin one is definitely correct though, I went and actually did it.

No worries, and sorry I don't, try and post a request in the 'maths exams' forum, you might catch more luck.

What's wrong with it?

C must be happening and even though D has some float. D must be started in the region of day 3 to day 9 and lasts for 6 days, therefore D must be happening on day 8.

Activity F must be happening, whilst E and G may be happening.

also, do the numbers in the tiny circles (event) in the activity network matter?
I mean, does the order of numbering matter?

sorry but, for part b- how can the activities E and G be classified as - may be happening- on the 15th day? if you trace down the vertical line, E and G are both at their "float" stage on the 15th day, doesn't that mean they must be happening?

Yes, the order of the nodes in an activity network matter, allows you to work out for each node and is required for finding the critical path.

E and G may not be happening on the 15th day. Just because the float covers the 15th day, it doesn't mean that they are happening then. They can be started at their earliest start times and therefore they are finished before day 15.

so why is it that activity 6 doesn't HAVE to or must not be happening on day 8?

and do you agree with this-

Activity 6?

If you're asking whether I agree with the yellow boxes, I do but the one talking about activity F is hidden from view so I can't confirm that one.

*No worries *

EDIT: Answers for question 1 should be:

a) C and E
b) I and J
c) F, H and I
