So all of your exams are ocr?. How are you with cummulative frequency?

Yes, all of them apart from computer science; that's with aqa.

I find them very easy, do you need help with them?

I'm struggling with stratified samples and unconditional probabilities, those long tree diagrams are a nightmare

If you're on aqa, you can buy the teachers pack for 55 pounds, that will cover everything.

Stratisfied sampling is a basic A* topic, a stratisfied sample first divides the population into groups. Then it takes a simple random sample from each group, the number chosen from each group is the same fraction of the group as the sample size is of the population.

It's really simple, honestly. How are with drawing and interpreting histograms?. Do you know the equation for frequency density?. How about direct and inverse proportion?

Frequency density = frequency ÷ class width right? So Frequency = frequency density times class width?. On a histogram, the vertical axis shows the frequency density and always starts from zero.

For appropriate averaged

The median formula is both middle values divided by two if the number of given values is an even number right?

I'm confident with proportionality,

Y=kx, k is the constant of proportionality. So y will always be k times x; e.g if k was 5 and y was 200 then x would have to be 40. If Y was 72 then x would have to be 14.4 as 72 divided by 5 is 14.4.

The ratio between K and X is always the same. In inverse proportionality one value increases at the same rate as the other one.
Thanks for that information, i will invest in the teachers pack for next year.

All your formulas are correct and i imagine you can easily rearrange the equations in given circumstance?. how are you with percentage error?.

The teachers pack is far better quality than any textbook and should enhance your ability come examination. I find textbooks and the specificatoon quite inadequate and this a problem in which educational representives need to address.
