is it okay to call the upper quartile the third quartile?
I guess "Upper Quartile"..."Third Quartile" ...and "Q3"...should be acceptable...

There's an extra table which gives you the values of P(Z>z) where z is 0.3 or 0.2 .... and so you would have lost a mark for accuracy but if you used the other table you would have not got the simultaneous equations accuracy mark but the final answer rounded to 3dp should be the same.

I know this my sound harsh but edexcel expects you to use that table, in one of their markscheme which had values like 0.3 they used it and even put in the margin: Only accept 0.5244 for A1 or something.

thats really unfair if they do... coz our teacher never told us about that whilst doing past papers and stuff. we just refered to orignal tables which has 2dp.

Damn, all those 10 weeks of revision for S1 gone down the drain.
i do blame myself though for reading wrong value at 0.8

See how they gave a mark for the perfect more accurate answer?

Look at my scheme, they accept both.

And anyway, it was 6 marks for formulating two equations and solving them. Thats a lot to do and a lot to give marks for. They're arent going to give silly B1 marks out in this question. Don't worry.

Hmmm not the same paper though, is that a paper which is later than 2004? Perhaps they have become nicer and have given into the fact that most people didn't know about the tiny table... I guess it depends on who made the paper...

The question you showed was one where there were 4 marks for one simple thing. Here there were 6 marks for doing this twice and solving an equation. They just arent going to give marks out for small things like that.

how do you get 0.8416 and -0.5244 to 4 decimal places. On my table it only had z values to 2 dp. and i got 0.77 (wrong) and -0.52 and the two z values. will i lose the marks for the others because i read the table wrong?
I "cheat" and use a TI 83+ - has functions for normal distribution, so I don't need to bother with tables

They tend to give marks for any answer that rounds up to a certain figure though, you should be ok

Hmmm another one, interesting. Especially how they give a B1 just for the value: a 9 marker that one!

lol doesnt that just work with my argument...6 marks for doing the same as 9 marks...? They're not getting rid of M and A marks...

At most, they maybe, might give one B mark.
