Hoping for an easy paper

Aren’t we all😂

Paper was quite nice except for the RR questions imo.

Finally done then, have a good summer everyone!

1) 54 feasible flow

71 c1

90 c2

2) £9200 decision emv should have insurance

3) theta 31 13

cr dq ds

4)turn to minimise

2 lines 3 lines 4 lines

145 expected scores

5) Un = 17 -2(-1/2)^n +2n

n tends to infinity, Un tends to 2n

6) £16100 dynamic programming

7) Un+1= 0.75Un +k

k=£13084.24 (think this is wrong)

8)2/11 value of game to a

7 I believe I got k = 483 roughly and I was quite confident with it

And question 5 the last part I think I just put down Un tends to infinity as n tends to infinity I didn’t specify it tending to 2n

Don’t remember the specific values of Q1 but that sounds familiar, everything else I got the exact same

yeah your k makes more sense practically than mine

1. Relatively nice flows question. Seeing that the flow-augmentation route “by inspection” goes backwards was a little mean, but oh well.

2. Nice EMV question. People might’ve got caught out by how wordy it was — I nearly messed it up but caught myself.

3. Transportation question was alright. Nothing out of the ordinary really.

4. The allocation question messed with me. First time, I minimised — whoops! Second time, I did the method wrong but got a feasible allocation of 145. Third time, I thought I did the method right but got a feasible allocation of 144?!? Oh well, lost marks.

5. Never seen a transformation of recurrence before, but I liked it. Curious to see if the markscheme will give marks to people who just went straight ahead with solving u_n instead of using v_n.

6. Standard dynamic programming in table form. Just be careful entering things into your calculator and keep organised.

7. Second recurrence question? Real world application? Don’t mind if I do! I still don’t get why RR is in Decision; as a PureBoi(tm), I’m not complaining though!

8. This game theory question had a lot of moving parts. There’ll be dropped marks for a lot of people I imagine. The first bit was nice, but the real hurdle for me was “using” the information they gave for A’s probabilities. Wasn’t useful to me. Also never seen a question like that except in the challenge section of the textbook.

TL;DR — Not as nice as D1, but better than CP1 or CP2 by a decent margin.

I got lucky with Q8, Q4 2019 part e is very similar to the last part of Q8, just remembered to check how to do it right before the exam
