    I'm stuck on part 4)b) in this paper, can anyone help pls:

    https://1a388b28f5ce9318f837a64962fc...%20Edexcel.pdf

    I know that mean= ∑xf

    but I've forgotten how to find x?


    I worked it out as the class width + multiplied it by the frequency but it was obviously wrong.
    Find midpoint of the foot length values then find ∑xf
    Mean is ∑xf divided by total frequency

    X is the midpoint so for the first one-
    10 + 12/ 2 = 11

    A lot of people were asking for this so I made a list up till the chapter on probability. Everything after that is included in the formula booklet. I know it's a bit late but I guess people will be waking up early tomorrow to revise anyway...
    Good luck!! X 😊

    For part a the lowest mark is Q1 which is 30
    For part b the lowest mark is Q3 which it seems to be around 46? And this is because 75% of the data lies above Q1 and 25% above Q3.

    Hope this helps and good luck x

    Thank you!!, If the question was asked the other way round so if they asked for the highest mark for (a) & (b), what would the answer be? & Good luck to you as well!!

    Formula for skewness of quartiles ?
    I think it was something like

    If Q3-Q2 > Q2-Q1 - Positive Skew
    If Q3-Q2 < Q2-Q1 - Negative Skew
    If Q3-Q2 = Q2-Q1 - No Skew / Symmetrical

    And don't mix this up with the quartile coefficient of skewness.
