Section A [36 marks]

Answer all of the questions 1 to 6.

1 For each of the following variables, state whether it is

discrete or continuous

and whether it is

quantitative or qualitative.

(i) The number of goals scored by a football team in each game during the course of one season.

[1]

(ii) The colours displayed by traffic lights at a road junction at randomly chosen points in time. [1]

(iii) The birth weight of babies. [1]

2 In an examination, a student wrote the following answers to three parts of a question about the

method of moving averages.

A To obtain an estimate for a future season, the appropriate seasonal component is subtracted

from the value given by the trend line.

B Cyclical variation is an approximately regular pattern repeated in a series of data, but not

always over the same period of time.

C The method of moving averages removes the long term trend from a series of data.

(i) State which one of A, B or C is a correct statement. [1]

3 You are not required to carry out any calculations in answering this question.

The net profit, in $millions, to the nearest $million, reported by a large company in each of the

years 1993 to 2006 is shown in the following table.

P(A ) = 0.5,

P(B ) = 0.4,

P(A B ) = 0.7.

5 At the start of 2003 the students in a random sample of new students arriving at a college were

asked to keep a record of their expenditure on different items during the three years of their course.

The data they collected were then used to calculate the price relatives for five different items of

expenditure during those three years. These are given in the following table, together with weights

allocated to the items by the college from information provided by the students.

Item Weight 2003 2004 2005

Food 4 100 104 106

Clothing 5 100 101 103

Transport 2 100 103 104

Books 3 100 102 104

Other items 6 100 105 105

(i) What do the values 100 and 104 in the row headed Food tell you? [2]

(ii) What do the two values of 105 in the row headed Other items tell you? [1]

(iii) Calculate a weighted aggregate price index for 2005, using 2003 as base year. [4]

(iv) Give a reason why this index would be inappropriate to use for the national population. [1]

Section B [64 marks]

Answer not more than four of the questions 7 to 11.

Each question in this section carries 16 marks.

7 The table below gives the number of people living in each house in a small village, in the form of a

frequency distribution.

Number of people 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 or more

Number of houses 2 7 8 10 8 5 0

For example, there are 7 houses in each of which only 1 person lives.

(i) Find the total number of houses in the village. [1]

(ii) Calculate the total number of people living in the village. [2]

In the remainder of this question express all final answers as either exact fractions, or

correct to 3 significant figures.

(iii) A house in the village is chosen at random. Find the probability that

(a) it has exactly 5 people living in it, [1]

(b) it has at most 3 people living in it. [1]

(iv) A person living in the village is chosen at random. Find the probability that this person lives in

a house in which exactly 3 people live. [3]

(v) Two residents of the village are chosen at random. Find the probability that they live in the

same house with no other people. [4]

A house in which at least 4 people live may be referred to as a large household. Residents of the

village are chosen one at a time, at random and without replacement, from those who do not

live alone.

(vi) Find the probability that the third resident chosen is the first who does not live in a large

household. [4]

8 (a) Two teams of athletes, A and B, took part in a competition in which each athlete was awarded

a number of points for his or her performance. The following table summarises information

about the number of points obtained by the athletes in the two teams.

Team

Number of athletes

(iv) Hence calculate, correct to 1 decimal place, the standard deviation of the points scored

by all the athletes. [4]

(b) A school French examination consists of Paper 1, Paper 2 and Paper 3.

The following table gives the raw marks in the three papers for three pupils, together with the

raw means and standard deviations for all pupils who took the examination. It also gives the

corresponding values after the marks for each paper have been scaled to a mean of 100 and

a standard deviation of 12.

9 In a population of size 60, there are 20 men, who are all allocated a different two-digit number

in the range 0120, and 40 women, who are all allocated a different number in the range 2160.

Different methods are to be considered for selecting a sample of size 6 from the population, using

the two-digit random number table below. Numbers outside the allocated ranges are ignored, and

no person may be selected more than once in any one sample.

TWO-DIGIT RANDOM NUMBER TABLE

05 61 53 50 12 82 25 53 37 83 44 21 66 80 35

84 03 12 94 47 34 62 51 20 11 11 10 55 77 69

(i) Starting at the beginning of the first row of the table, and reading along the row, a simple

random sample is to be selected.

(a) Write down the two-digit numbers of the six people selected for the sample. [2]

(b) For each number in the row which you did not use before your sample was complete,

give the reason why you did not use it. [2]

(ii) A systematic sample is to be selected.

(a) Write down the smallest possible two-digit number of the first person selected. [1]

(b) Write down the largest possible two-digit number of the first person selected. [1]

The systematic sample is selected by starting at the beginning of the second row of the table,

and reading along the row.

(c) Write down the number of the first person selected. [1]

(d) Write down the numbers of the other five people selected for the systematic sample. [2]

(iii) It is believed that gender (male or female) is an important factor in the survey being carried

out, and a sample stratified by gender is therefore to be selected.

(a) State how many men and how many women should be selected for such a sample. [1]

(b) Starting at the beginning of the third row of the table, and reading along the row, select a

sample stratified by gender. [3]

(iv) Compare the three samples you have selected as regards how well they represent the

population in terms of gender. [1]

(v) An interviewer was told to select a sample of the required size by the method of quota

sampling. Briefly explain why the interviewer would not need to use a random number table

to select the people to be interviewed. [2]

10 A game at a funfair requires a player to roll an unbiased dice and to toss an unbiased coin and to

pick a card at random from a pack of 52 cards. Before doing this, the player must predict the three

outcomes: the number (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6) landing uppermost on the dice, whether the coin lands

showing heads or tails, and the suit (hearts, clubs, diamonds or spades) of the chosen card.

Give all your answers in part (i) as exact fractions.

(i) Assuming that all predictions are made at random, calculate the probability that a player gets

(a) all three predictions correct, [1]

(b) all three predictions incorrect, [1]

(c) exactly one of the three predictions correct, [3]

(d) exactly two of the three predictions correct. [3]

(ii) State which is the most likely outcome of the game. [1]

Players each pay $3 to enter the game. The following table shows the prizes which the owner of

the game pays for the different outcomes.

Number of correct predictions Prize (in $)

0 No prize

1 1

2 5

3 40

(iii) Calculate the owners expected gain for one game. [3]

(iv) How many times must the game be played if the owner wishes to make an expected gain of

$300? [2]

The owner is considering changing the rules of the game. Instead of predicting the suit of a card, a

player would be required to predict its face value (ace, king, queen, jack, 10, 9, 8, etc). Everything

else, including the prizes paid, would remain unchanged.

(v) Without carrying out any calculations, state, with a reason, whether the proposed change

would be to the advantage of the owner or a player. [2]

of the three subjects, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Present your results in a suitable table.

[5]

(iv) Find, correct to 1 decimal place, the percentage of all students who are studying Biology. [3]

(v) Using a scale of 2 cm to represent 20 students on the vertical axis, draw a dual bar chart to

compare the numbers of males and females studying each of the three subjects. [5]

(vi) Briefly explain why the total frequency indicated by your bar chart is different from the number

of students on the course. [1]
