    Estimate your 2U mark :)!

    /Sigh, I suppose I walked into 2U and 3U math in year 11 knowing it would be the 3 units not counted to my ATAR, but it's still depressing... judging by the solutions posted up, and applying the harshest marking scheme, I reckon I'm looking at 80/120.

    Modern Greek (Beginners) Listening/Written Exam

    How did everyone go? I, personally, found it very difficult compared with every other exam I've had for this subject - almost all of which were exams made entirely of past HSC questions. I found that the comprehension required a lot of guesswork just to answer the questions due to my lack of...

    Probability Question

    That works with the Monty Hall problem, but we're talking about independent events here; it doesn't matter what we already know, the chances that the other child is a boy is 1/2. The chances that any given child is a boy is ALWAYS 1/2.

    Probability Question

    Anyway, my answer remains as 1/2; mathematically speaking, gender is always an independent event and the chance of a particular gender is 1/2. Wouldn't make a difference if they couple had 2 kids or 20 kids; the chance that any one of them were male would be 1/2.

    Probability Question

    Probability Question

    GB and BG are the same thing because we know that the 1st child is B.

    Probability Question

    Half. Child genders are independent events, like tossing a coin. EDIT: If you wanted to do it mathematically... P(boy boy) = P(1st is a boy) x P(2nd is a boy) = 1/1 x 1/2 = 1/2
