Hey guys

Was told to post my answers on a separate thread so it doesn't get lost in the other thread.

I've got my answers here:

Predicting 58 ish is an A and not much lower because it wasn't that bad of a paper. Loads of people thought it was OK or slightly harder. Theory questions threw me off a bit though.

Q1. 11 total i think

a) was Sdd or something (3)

b) wiggles is the response variable as it changes depending distance (1)

c) r = 0.722 + 0.014d

d) d= 350 sub in so w = 5.6 ish?

Q2 Sarah one

a) equation is 2p + q = 0.5

b) a= 0.175 b= 0.15

c) idk

d) E(R) = 0.45?

e) Sarah wins = 0.475 Rebeccawins= 0.375

Q3 with frequencies?

a) heigh of bar and width igot something like 34cm and 1cm?

b) show that Syy is … (1) didn’tdo this right lol

c) PMCC

d) SD

e) What were the other questions?

Q4 Hotel one

a) 0

b) t =0.03

c) u = 0.22

d) 0.45 and 15/37

e) diners 16? Some people say 33

Q5

a) median 3.47

b) SD = 0.689?

c) mean proof 3.43

d) Probability baby wasunder 3kg something like 0.2546

e) explain the use ofthe model? (2)I said that althoughthe range chosen was appropriate as mean was 3.43 for both and SD was close tothe calculated one, there is negative skew as median>mean so not good to use this model as mean and SD are affected by skew.

f) effect of adding baby weight of 3.43 on (3)

i) mean – I said staysthe same because I sneakily calculated it , because the frequency becomes 51and value is within range or something

ii) SD change "Others said it stayed thesame, but I wrote that it decreases, because now the average distance from themean is slightly less (as n has increased by 1 but deviance hasn't changed)".

Q6.

a) 0.0668 men took over 300 min to run

b) needs to run below 206.33 minutes to be in 20% of people who finish first

c)

d) the mew one0.18/0.5 = 0.36 (3)

Let me know what I'm missing and I've done wrong as well as the marks for each if you remember

nice, add some spoilers to each questions.

also, itd be a cool idea if you found out the marks of each question and put a strawpoll asking how many marks you got, that way we could guess grade boundaries a lot easier.

i think it should be w=0.5 from comparing class width

area of given bar =4

A=kF

4=k8 k=0.5

so area of this bar =0.5x17=8.5

h=8.5/0.5=17

Sorry, why do I need to spoiler answers? If someone's on this thread they'll want to see answers right? I'm new to this so sorry if there's another reason

I found the reciprocal of each score, then multiplied by the probability. Have to say I wasn't sure on that one.

So you divided each of the observations by 1 and then multiplied the 'same' probabilities with each corresponding 'new' observation i.e. 1/ each observation?
