    For S1, there's types of questions where they state a number has been added or reduced. And then it asks you to state the effect made on the standard deviation, mean, IQR etc? Can someone please explain to me how to do these type of questions😩 I don't understand


    You put your hand up in the exam and ask the invigilator to come over, and then you ram your fist up their arse.

    But, why -0.25? Why not -0.01 or whatever? I'm being really stupid here I'm sure
    You need to read the question. The top 25% of the candidates get a merit.

    The top 75% of the candidates get a pass. This 75% includes the 25% getting a merit.

    So the middle 50% between 25% and 75% are candidates who pass but don't get a merit.

    It has nothing to do with "even if they got 74% they'd pass", the question says absolutely nothing about the marks of the candidates (so how on earth can you say if they got 74% they'd pass??? You don't know that...), simply their ranks. The top 75% get a pass, the top 25% get a pass and a merit. So the 75% - 25% = 50% middle get a pass but not a merit.

    BOX PLOT QUESTION HELP

    When you work out outliers
    But none of the data falls into those outliers
    Then what is your highest and lowest numbers? Would it be the numbers on the data or the outliers?

    I'm pretty sure they accept both. I always do the highest and lowest values of the given data, but they draw both in mark schemes so either should be fine.

    Okay but what I'm saying is even if they got 74% they'd still pass, but not get a merit, right? I'm a little bit confused...

    The people from 25% till the end of the whole box plot are passing. So, from the Q1 to the Q3 is the amount of people passing and from Q3 till the end is the amount of people getting merit. The number of people ONLY passing, is therefore the amount from Q1 to Q3, which is (75-25) = 50%.

    Can someone explain part (d)
    What is the probability of passing the test overall?

    P(pass test first time) + P(fail first time)P(pass second time) = 0.95

    So p + (1-p)(p-0.2) = 0.95

    You need to think this through, this is GCSE level stats.

    E((X+1)^2) = E(X^2 + 2X +1) = E(X^2) + 2E(X) + 1, now plug in what you know about E(X^2) and E(X).

    Also, in the future, be more specific about what you do/don't udnerstand as well as your attempt and your own thoughts...

    Does anyone know how to do question 4 Excercise 5f in the s1 textbook?
    You'll get more luck posting a picture of the question and what you've tried and what specific problems you have with the question.

    1) 3 sig figs. But all working previous to the final answer should be to as much accuracy as possible, only round to 3 sig figs at the end.

    2) use asterisks to denote the outliers.
