Hi, is time considered a discrete or continuous variable?

It depends upon how the data is recorded. If the values are recorded with infinitesimal precision (ie. with infinitely long decimals like 1.4142135...) then it is a continuous variable. If the values are recorded in discrete chunks (ie. to the nearest hour or to the nearest day), then it is a discrete variable. On VCAA exams, the way in which the data is recorded is included in the question.

Can someone help me with what a "three-median line" is and how this is different to median smoothing? There was a question about 3-median line in the vcaa 2011 exam but I'm not sure if it's still relevant to the current study design. Thanks

It's a linear regression method (ie. trying to achieve a similar sort of thing to the least-squares regression method that you'll be more familiar with) using the median of three equal chunks of data. It is not a technique used to smooth each data point. It is no longer part of the study design.

Continuous, as is evident in the sweeping second hand on an analog clock.

The three median line is not in the current study design that commenced in 2016. You can ignore it. It is not the same as tmedian smoothing.

how do you do this question
It is claimed that 3 times as many students pass a unit than fail. If 200 student outcomes are observed, what is the expected number of passes if the claim is correct.

If the claim is correct, then for every four students, three pass.

Then, since we have 200 students, we would have three-quarters passing. How many is that?

Might also help to point out exactly what part you're stuck on in future.

Hi all,
I need some assistance with Further Math VCAA 2007 Exam 1 Module 3: Graphs and relations Question 9.
I have used the gradient formula to calculate the value of k=2. The correct answers is k=1. How is that possible?
Thanks

If the function is $Z = 2x +2y$, then the maximum value occurs everywhere on the boundary $x + y \leq 100, x \in [50, 100]$. You are told that $Z$ takes a maximum only at $(100, 0)$.

Hope this helps

Hello,

My question relates to some of the earlier questions asked.

This relate to graph and relation. How does the sliding method work. I have asked my teacher but still it does not make sense.

Thank you

Our school only though us cores and modules 1(matrices) and 2(network).
However, I found module 3(geometry and measurement) easier than module 2(network).
Am I allow to complete modules 1 and 3 instead of module 2?
I asked my school teacher and they say that I should stick with the modules that I learned because it will stuff everyone's score. I don't get why that will stuff everyone's score.
Can somebody tell me the reasons and why I should stick with modules I learned at school? (I'm 100% sure I will do better if I do module 3 because I always get 100% on the practice exam if I pick modules 1 and 3.)

Hey! I don't think choosing another module will impact others' scores (that's not how it works). The reason people recommend sticking with the modules you learned at school is because generally that's what students feel most confident in (obviously because you know the content and have been formerly assessed on those areas already in your sacs). But if you feel more confident in module 3 than module 2 then I would say go for it - you want to maximise the marks you'll get on the exam. Hope this helps!
