6ai) X Y Z. these three set of variables which are all different numbers holds all the different possible combinations
The variable y can have 9 different options. therefore z now has 8 different options(1 less option since no repetition is allowed). The value of x has 9 possible combinations since its 100 - 999

6aii) for 8 _ _. the last digit must be odd so the number of combinations is 5C1. Now the middle number can be anything however 8C1 number of combinations exist to as the choice of numbers decrease to avoid repetition. Do the same type of working for the even 7 _ _ and 9 _ _ but remember the first number is already an odd number so the combination is 4C1
7 _ _
8 _ _
9 _ _

For a i , why does variable Y have 9 options , and not 8 , since one is already used in X ? Btw thanks

X excludes the number zero, whereas Z and Y can accept it.

8 _ _. Since it must be odd the last digit must be either 1,3,5,7,9. This gives a combination of 5C1. The middle value now can accept numbers 0, 2, 4 , 6, and 4 odd numbers since one odd number is used at the end. Remember no repetition. So between 800 and 899 there are 5C1 * 8C1 = 40 different combinations.

Also don't worry it took me some time to solve this question. I absolutely hate permutation and combination questions in statistics

the 3 different possible arrangements of W.

_ W _ _ _ _ _ _ W _
W _ _ _ _ _ _ W _ _
_ _ W _ _ _ _ _ _ W

There are 8 spaces so there are 8! different ways to arrange them however there the letter L is repeated 3 times. So for 1 arrangement of W there are 8!/3! different possible arrangements. Multiply by 3 to get the total amount of arrangements. Good luck this wednesday? (Am having my s1 exam aswell )

A bit scared of the permutation and combination questions and the binomials distribution questions. P1 was fine, but I realized after the exam i made a silly mistake on the trigonometry question so I lose like 5 marks there :P

since it's asking for weights 1.5 sd from the mean, we need to calculate x. which is 400 + 1.5*5.62 (your S.d) and 400 - 1.5*5.62. Using these values of x (408.43 and 391.57) find the probability between these two values and then multiply by 500 to get the number of packets. I think this is correct? can you message the markscheme when you're done
