Anyone else do this? What did you think of it?

I'm pretty sure i got everything correct apart from the question which asked for lower quartile, upper quartile and box plot. The marks given seemed to low for the amount of work needed to add up all the values. How were you meant to answer it?

The box plot one is easy if u know how to do it.

The first time I did 1 of them I tried to do it the same way as you (+got nowhere).

The way your meant to do it is if there are 15 values the 8th is the median, the 4th is the LQ and the 12th is the UQ.

I didn't get the last question and didn't like the probability one took me about 1/2 n hour to draw the tree.

I got the answer to the probablity one as being 3/4. I spent about 5 mins drawing a tree but then i realised it was the wrong way to tackle the question. What i did was I found the probability of all 3 the same colour and then the probability of all 3 different. I took that away from 1 and i got the answer. Overall about 4 mins work

Oh yeah i forgot to say. They were very nasty with the box plot question as there were only 9 small squares for every large square. Most probably wouldn't have noticed so you will lose most of the marks for that question
