# D1 question watch

1. I asked a similar question before but i cant seem to find that thread

For this question where did they get 2y>=2x + 9z from?
2. Also for this question (5.c)iii) - the last ques. Why is it ABDBCBA? I put ABDCBA :3

the total of all components is 6x + 9y + 12z

the components of type A is 2x + 4y + 3z

you want next to say 2x + 4y + 3z is greater than or equal to 40% of 6x + 9y + 12z

Yeah i got that:

2x + 4y + 3z >= 0.4 (6x + 9y + 12z)

But if you multiply by 5 you get:

10x + 20y + 15z >= 6x + 9y + 12z
11y >= -4x - 3z

?

0.4 is 2/5

0.4 is 2/5
ughghghfh yeah youre right i forgot about the 2. Thanks for reminding me

so its:

10x + 20y + 15z >= 12x + 18y + 24z
2y >= 2x - 9z

Do you have any ideas about the second question i posted?

Also for this question (5.c)iii) - the last ques. Why is it ABDBCBA? I put ABDCA :3
ABDBCBA is a shorter route than ABDCA but it isn't the same length as the route in c,(ii).

(In fact the question seems very ill-posed - it's not possible for Xiong to both choose the shortest route and a route the same length as in c, (ii)).

the answer to c)ii) is 106km

ABDBCBA 20 + 15 + 15 + 18 + 18 + 20 = 106km
ABDCBA 20 + 15 + 33 + 18 + 20 = 106km

My answer still gets the same length, with an 'actual' route. So why is their's right and mine wrong?

the answer to c)ii) is 106km

ABDBCBA 20 + 15 + 15 + 18 + 18 + 38 = 124km
BA = 20, not 38, surely?
ABDCBA 20 + 15 + 33 + 18 + 20 = 106km

My answer still gets the same length, with an 'actual' route. So why is their's right and mine is wrong?
Because BD according to the original graph takes 35km, not 33. (I also now understand a bit more what they are getting at; will teach me to read the whole question next time and not just the bit I'm asked about!) You need to provide a route in terms of the original graph.

ABDCBA 20 + 15 + 33 + 18 + 20 = 106km
Yeah thats what i put: BA is 20, CBA = 38

BD = 15???

I have provided it in terms of the original though?

You wrote that:

ABDBCBA 20 + 15 + 15 + 18 + 18 + 38 = 124km

If you didn't mean that AB =20, BD = 15, DB = 15, ..., CB = 18, BA = 38, then I have no idea what that line of yours was supposed to mean.

BD = 15???
My bad: I meant CD (this is why I hate trying to answer questions with attachments that you can't actually look at while answering the question!).

In terms of the original, ABDCBA has length 20 + 15 + 35 + 18 + 20 = 108. It only becomes 106 when you replace DC with DBC (reducing the journey from D to C from 35 to 33).

Oops yeah that was my mistake - i thought you were referring to my route - not the one given in the markscheme.
Yes - i wrote it wrong: BA = 20 (ill edit my post now).

i guess you could open the image in a new tab the minimise both the tsr and image tab to fit on both screens?
Ah that makes more sense - you mean DC = 35 but DBC = 33

Ok i think i see it now - they replaced DC with DBC on my route to get an 'actual' route. Right?

Yes. (Although I confess I'm not at all familiar with how these questions are normally laid out).
