Q4a
I don't have a clue where they've got 2alpha from.

(If this is the case with all edexcel mark schemes, I'm sticking with solomon for tonight!)

I may be being stupid but surely, the sum of the probabilties for each outcome have to add up to 1? The probability is 0.2 for -3 and -2, α for -1 and 0 and 0.1 for 1 and 2. The sum of these is
0.6+2α=1, so α=0.2?

Yh I realised about an hour after I'd posted the mistake I'd made. Couldn't be bothered to say anything.
