# Edexcel AS Level Maths - Statistics (S1) Exam - 15th June 2016 watch

1. I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for the S1 exam for Edexcel maths where we can contribute resources, revision tips and ask for help

Thanks!

Here are some good resources to start this thread off!

You use linear interpolation.
So you do (15-6/21-6)*5 + 60 = 63
You just got the numbers on the top of the fraction mixed up
6. Anyone have any ideas on like the hardest question you could get. I dislike stats due to there being so many words. So yeah if you have any ideas please tell me. Thanks
7. How did everyone find it? Not too bad this being my 3rd attempt haha

1b)Wiggles c)0.994 d)w=0.722+0.0142d e)5.69
2a)0.5=2p +q b)0.15 c)0.175 d)0.45 f) 0.445 and 0.485
3a)2.348 b *didn't get this one* c)-133.9 d)-0.754
4a) 0 b)t=0.03 u=0.22 9/11(0.818) 15/12(0.682) estimate=35
5a)w=2/3 h=12.75 b) 3.47 c) 3.43,0.680 d) 0.2546
6a)0.0668 b)206(.something) minutes c)0.36

I don't expect all of my answers to be correct so please take them with a pinch of salt, appreciate any corrections and explanations

2f the probabilities were 0.475 and 0.375 respectively
my estimate for the number of people was 32.
the height was 17cm and the width was 0.5cm

I created a probability distribution for Rebecca where I replaced the x values ie 2 for 1/2 as it was R=1/X.Then you just work out all the possible outcomes (you can use a tree diagram but to me that long). The summation of all the possible outcomes was for me 0.445.
15. Any unofficial markschemes out there yet?

yea i got a couple of friends that did that method but the thing is that both girls use the same outcome from the spinner i.e its not one spin for sarah and one spin for rebecca, so the only way sarah can win is if the spinner lands on 3/2 or 2 (because rebecas values of 1/3/2 and 1/2 would be smaller) and the probability that it lands on 3/2 is 0.3 as given in the table and that it lands on 2 is p which is 0.175, hence 0.3+0.175 = 0.475. hope u understand my explanation

To be fair, you are probably right as I originally left this question not knowing how to do it. What did you do?

same i just didnt understand it!
I think ive done okay on the others except the venn Diagram. Edexcel are horrible i hated that question.

Most people I know said it was 0.475 and 0.375.
Also why aren't you guys on the S1 thread
