# Statistics 2 help (Edexcel specification) watch

1. Can someone help me get my head around the inequalities when the questions are set in context?

What's the best way to remember what to do if it says something like: "...at least 7" or "...fewer than 10"?

I have at least 7 apples. So 7 or more.

I have fewer than 10 pears. I can't have 10 pears, and I have 9 or less.

I have no more than 10 bananas. I could have 10 bananas, so I have 10 or less.

..practice makes perfect.
