3. It was good..what did u do for that question in which they asked to find the value of a and b between which the middle 95% of the data lies ?!?!
4. Ah dnt ask me that! I figurd out sth abt it jst bfore the xm ends nd cudnt cmplt it

since P(a<x<b)=0.95 i did P(x<b)=0.975 and used the values of mean and standard deviation like alway.. p(Z<(b-μ/σ)=0.975 and used the big table of values for φ(z) approximately 0.975 to find the value of b
8. I am not an official spokesperson but Arsey is a UK teacher who will not have any students taking this series of exams.. So I suspect there is no urgency to produce any model answers.

What was the value for k in the last question? and what was the standard deviation?? Does anyone remember???

Im not sure if i remember correctly
But k was 101.4
And s.d was 4.75
11. K was 101.4 ish.. and standard deviation was 4.something.. can't remember :/
12. Wasn't k the upper quartile?
Does anybody remember their answers to 1 d and e? P(finding two odds) and (sum of numbers is 6| they're odd) I mean.

Yes it was the upper quartile
And 1d was 0.38** and I forgot 1e
15. alright. How'd you get 0.38?
like 1d involved finding the probability of finding 2 odds and there were 3 numbers- 1, 3 and 5.
Doesn't that mean that there are six possible outcomes? (1,3; 3,1, 1,5; 5,1; 3,5 and 5,3)
i did 2*P(1 and 3) + 2*P(1 and 5) + 2*P(3 and 5) and got 0.2...

i did 2*P(1 and 3) + 2*P(1 and 5) + 2*P(3 and 5) and got 0.2...
there's also the probability of it being two 1s, 3s or 5s
18. I did the same..
19. I think it was the lower quartile and NOT the upper quartile as P(W<k)=3P(W>K) and if it was the upper quartile, three times the upper quartile would give you the 225th percentie, which is illogical, however if it was the lower quartile, three times the lower quartile would be the upper quartile ans since there is no skewness the probability of the upper quartile is equal to the probability of the lower quartile.

I did like this
P(1 or 3 or 5) AND P(1 or 3 or 5)
It gave me 0.38**
