    Does S1 have any annoying rules with rounding and significant figures like M1 does (in M1 every answer must be given to 2sf or 3sf).

    Most mark schemes say "awrt", is this always the case?
    Assuming they dont specify anything in the question, any number of decimal places/sig figs is always accepted?

    someones already answered 1 and 3 so:

    2. There are a lot of things you can do on your calculator. You can work out:
    mean
    variance
    standard deviation
    sum x^2, sum y^2 etc
    Normal distribution
    Thank you

    how do you work out normal distribution on your calculator? is there a special function or something??
    thanks!

    Effects of coding on Sxx, Syy & Sxy?

    Edit:

    Sxx has the same effect as variance

    Sxy has the same effect as standard deviation
    so if the code was y= x - 20 /100,
    sxx and sxy would only be affected by the 100?
    would you like... times them by 100?

    how does coding effect Sxx, Sxy and Syy im confused

    If you have the casio fx-991ES plus
    press mode 3(stat)
    then AC
    Then shift 1, 5
    The following options will come up
    P(
    R(
    Q(

    P( is when you have p(z<?)
    R( is when you have p(?<z<0) OR p(0<z<?)
    Q( is when you have p(z>?)

    I don't need the answer to the question, I just need to know what the question says as I have yet to do it and there are weird symbols.

    If anyone can send me what the question says that would be appreciated

    If I had to guess, it would be  P( R \cap Q^c) = 0.15, P(Q) = 0.35 and that's it. Maybe you can find an alternative source of the paper?

    Hey, im trying to do a question about mean/standard deviation but just can't get my head around it. It's S1 June 2013 (R), Q3)E).

    I just don't get what I'm meant to do. I've haven't attempted it because i dont know where to start . any help would be appreciated

    Its asking for the number of tomato plants with a yield of more than1 standard deviation above the mean so:
    mean + 1 standard deviation= 18.3 (based on answer to part c)

    18.3 lies in the group 15<y<25
    so the number of plants >18.3
    = (upper yield - calculated yield)/ class width * frequency
    (25-18.3)/10 *12 = 8.04
    you then add the 4 for the next group also as they clearly have a yield >18.3
    so total is 12.04 so 12 plants

    Thanks for this, it was very useful and cleared a few things up. However, i dont understand why you used the upper yield- calculated yield? is that interpolation?
