I thought that the calculator paper was betta than the other one by a long shot. Was anyone able to do the last question???? Just wondering... i thought it was practically inhuman. Also for the sampling question did ur total equal 50 ir 51. Were u meant to make it equal 50 coz i wasnt sure. Did people get 38 minutes for the 5 CDS mean question.
Thanks

yeh half the people i chatted to fiddled it to equal 50 and the other half wrote down 51 in the total box. oh well probably only the difference of one mark. everything else pretty much good - however some questions took me ages to figure out.!

hear hear. wasn't she the one trying to pretend to be a genious??? That was so dull and pretentious. Someone, who thinks it's cool to pretend they are more clever than they really are needs urgent medical assistance.

I'm afraid you must have ignored my pm (because obviously someone as intelligent as yourself couldn't have missed or misunderstood a PM)

Just in case you have missed it here is the message again in all of it's glory:

I would have though that the most intelligent person on the forum would realise that such a large sig is very bad nettiquette.

I'm embarrassed for you having to have this pointed out to you but hopefully you can take action quickly to avoid embarrassing yourself further

Im not sure, but if the sample size is only 50 then surly your have to have it add up to 50? Please don't every shout at me now, because I don't know, it was just an idea, and as someone said, it'll only be one mark

the speed = distance /time one really got me thinking
the upper bounds and lower bounds of the time were to the tenth of a second
i got 59.95 and 60.05 - did anyone else
the distance ones were ok except u had to remember to change it into metres
and my final answer was 24km/h
5 marks - i thought that was quite a lot for one question

Am I the only one who found it hard :confused:. I managed to get the stratified sample to work out okay though, but the question on upper and lower bounds confused me so badly. I go something like 0.4 km/h, which is nothing like it should have been

Oh well, at least the non-calculator was easy!
