    yes but the top 20% in terms of a running race is the lowest run times (faster/lower = better)

    so yeah, you use the neg value
    ah i see, well maybe one mark out of 4 :-(

    so
    The probability of booking dinner if youre staying in a room w/ breakfast is
    0.27/(0.27+0.33) which is 0.45
    the probability of booking dinner if youre staying in a room without breakfast is
    0.15/(0.22+0.15) which is 15/37

    then you multiply the respective booking numbers by those probabilities, add them together and you get 33

    does that make sense?
    Yes thank you for explaining that! How many marks was this?

    why would you want the lower 20% ih he wants to be in top 20%?
    Finishing the marathon in less time = doing better.
    So you had to find P(T<t) = 0.2 which came out around 206 minutes I think.

    Did anyone get a negative Sdd value and hence a negative r value? (not sure if Sdd or Sww forgot)

    And for the first probability question I got 0?

    I'm confused by that dinner question
    So it told you 100% of people stayed in a room with or without breakfast. It was predicted that 97% would though. So then for eating dinner there, the expected probability was 0.45 (or something like that) so using the same proportion as worked out earlier, surely 46 people order dinner???
    Think about it logically. 77 people arrived on a coach to stay at the hotel. How many of those people are not going to stay in a room? 0. The fact that 3% of people at the hotel had dinner but didn't book a room is because some people just went out there to eat.

    So you can't just use the proportion for eating dinner. You have to multiply your answers to the last question (P(D|RnB) and P(D|RnB')) by whatever the number of guests with/without dinner were (47 and 30 or something?). I ended up with 33, which I believe is the correct answer.

    Number of diners...
    (0.45 x 40) + (15 x 17/15) equals 33
    17/15 > 1. How can a probability be > 1?

    I thought it was reasonably similar to previous papers apart from the Venn diagram question. Probably the toughest S1 paper, but they keep getting harder and grade boundaries keep getting lower, so...

    I got the same answer (33) but I used the probability 0.405405... or something. I imagine 17/15 was just a typo.

    If we got P and Q wrong, is the rest of the question wrong (Error carried forward) or will they give us method marks? This is for the Rebecca and Sara Q
