    Because they are M/A marks you would not get any of those. The B one, you wouldn't get either
    Do you understand the question now?

    So my method isn't valid? The same method was used for a four mark question on a different paper which was in the mark scheme

    I'm not sure what 3 values of 4 means or what you've found - if you can explain it, there might be a perfectly valid way of doing it.

    I did it as each Y value has 4 trials and there are 3 of them so 12 trials all together and 10 of them are successful

    Sorry, I'm being extremely dense - yes, that is a correct method of doing it, and I'd give you all the marks myself but whether they would in the exam.. that is for someone with more expertise to answer

    Okay thanks I'll ask my teacher before the exam, if they won't I'll just do it the normal way
