    I read on another thread (link: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...949172&page=15) that if the mean is 50 and the coding is x/10 the mean becomes 0.5- but is that true?

    mate - this has been asked countless times - I can't recollect there being an answer tho ahaha Have you checked the textbook?
    sorry I just got back from chemistry and do S1 straight away so havent check, that case was like an extra number added, but what if we code like v=x/1000, would it matter ??

    Using a venn diagram..

    ...how would you work out P(A' U B) and P(A' U B'?? ? ?

    Thanks!!
    In addition to the reply from earlier, I would say use the addition rule:

    P(A u B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A n B)

    It's often easier to visualise intersections rather than unions so use this if you're stuck.

    I'm so confused, because apparently they're all different for Sxx, Syy and Sxy

    Can someone please list all the things that can be coded and explain effect of coding on each of these things?

    So, say you have 60 values. You want to work out the lower quartile. Do n/4 ---> 6/4 -----> 15. So you use the 15.5th value.
    Okay, but when I find the Q2, it's 60/4 which is 30, so I find the average of the 30th and 31st value?

    So, if you have a Coding where of say 2X+6, you ignore the +6. You multiply the Sxx by 4 (because that's 2^2), You multiply the Sxy by 2, and you don't multiply the Syy. That's what I saw from someone else. PMCC remains the same always.


    Yes, that would be an example of when you would use that method.
    So Sxx = multiply by n^2
    Sxy = multiply by n
    Syy = no effect

    Also are you 100% certain because I cant find much regarding this?

    so like if you got x=2a+6, Sxx= 4 Saa, y=4b+1, Syy= 16 Sbb , and Sxy= (2x4=8) Sab ?? just checked it in one example and it didnt turn out right

    I cannot claim I am 100% certain. But I have seen a couple of people say this. Is there an example Question anywhere?

    That's exactly right. An example of this being used in Question 2 of Jan 2008.

    I think that is right. Could I have a look at the example?

    question 2, if you try to find d= Svs/Sss, you would not get the value as shown ??

    Edit: It actually works, sorry its just me messing with Sxx Sxy value

    Checked and it work, if only x is coded, Syy does not change, if both coded, they both would change

    It says no gel pens on the exam so i highly doubt it. I use the Uni-ball Eye ink pens as the flow similar to gel pens

    Yup it works. That's definitely the way to Code Regression. Fab

    whoops hogree if events are independent, does that meant they're linked (does one affect the other)? Saw an example with two children being late.
