    Q1 test statistic was 2.68
    Q2 1.51
    S was a better estimator, right ?
    Last question interval was 24.1 to 53.1

    Same, I also learnt most of it yesterday and I found it pretty easy :0

    Question 1: Significant (designer)
    Question 2: Not significant for both mean and standard deviation (pigs)
    Question 3: 0.3828 for the Type II Error
    Question 4: Test A was better
    Question 5: Not significant for both F-test variance and two sample t-test (fire brigade)
    Question 6: End up with n>1 S is better than Y
    Question 7: 76.1, 1034 (I should be right, it asked for the confidence interval for variance instead of mean)

    Yep I agree Q6/7 Was you test statisic in Q2 1.511?
    In Q1 my test statistic was like 0.something. Mustve made a mistake with the S_p.

    what was the hypothesis for the first one? Just want to make sure I didn't **** up and I got (76.something and 1034.something) for the last one

    I *think* I recognise that number, not quite sure though

    Did you find the 99% confidence interval. Since the one for the mean was 95%. Also you had to use the Chi- Squared tables

    Weren't you meant to find the mean by adding the two values and dividing by 2. The use one of the bounds eg lower to work out the sample variance by using xbar -t9(0.025) x s/root(n)

    And rearrange to get S
    Then square S and use the (n-1)S^2 / Chi squared values?

    Came out to 76.something and 1034. Something

    Yeah i did that and got a different answer. Did you use the chi squared for 0.005 and 0.995. With 9 degrees of freedom

    Yea, I also remember double checking my Sample standard deviation. It was so thing like 14.something. Gave a sample variance of like 199.something I think

    Grade boundary predictions anyone? How does this compare to last years? I thought last years wasn't that bad tbh. Also what was the hypothesis for the first question(t-paired)? Hoping I didn't mess that one up.

    Hypothesis was H0 : mu = 2, H1, mu > 2

    Test statistic was about 2.6
