Oct. 21 PSATs

<p>hmmm... discuss please... I think I did okay....</p>

<p>How many no errors did you guys get in the 5th part?</p>

<p>Only a few.</p>

<p>I had a lot towards the end...IN A ROW! I was worried...</p>

<p>I had, er, I think three no errors in the first, correcting sentences or whatever part, and I think two or three no errors in the identifying sentence errors. I thought the writing section was easy this time, but I've improved a lot in the writing section since taking it as a sophomore.</p>

<p>Math was okay... and critical reading kicked my butt as always.</p>

<p>i didnt have a lot of no errors. i couldnt get two of the math problems and it was driving me crazyyy</p>

<p>I couldn't get the math problems about which cars were green and had 2 doors or somethign</p>

<p>I didnt understand that one either..</p>

<p>On the gird ins i left too blank.</p>

<p>I think I did really bad.</p>

<p>o.o I forgot what meticously meant.</p>


<p>And I now know more about 19th-century biographies and how stars twinkle than I ever wanted to know.</p>

<p>Other thoughts:
First math part made me want to shoot myself, but the second was easy as pie.</p>

<p>Critical Reading was alright...don't think i did terribly. What i hated was that my practice book had all paragraphs on science. I hate science. So practicing for CR was depressing. But it was alright today.</p>

<p>I finished the writing part like 15 minutes early and stared up at the banners in the gym. Then I counted them. Then i sang songs in my head.</p>

<p>Was kinda sketch about some of the first section CR vocab, made some careless errors in writing, but overall decent.</p>

<p>I had 3 no errors too...which makes sense because supposedly 1/5 of them are no errors...but i found errors when i went back to check...I ended up with only 1 no error.</p>

<p>Btw, was i the only one who thought the CR section was ridiculously hard?</p>

<p>Math was easy as usual...they should make math harder...</p>

<p>i had 1 or 2 no errors</p>

<p>to whoever's confused about the car problem, i'll try to explain:
this is what i remember:
200 cars total
50% are red (100 cars)->therefore up to 100 cars can be green
60% are 4-door, which means 40%, or 80 cars, are 2-door
something like 70%(doesnt really matter what the % was, the imporant part is that its >40%)... have alloy whatever weels-> 140 cars</p>

<p>therefore the maximum possible number of green 2-door cars with metal alloys is 80.</p>

<p>Crud, I multiplied the percentages to get 28 cars :( I had 80 initially but thought that I did it wrong</p>

<p>yeah i got 80 and only a few no errors.</p>

<p>I think there was suppose to be only one no error (the Charlotte Bronte) one but I got two. I can't seem to remember what the other no error I put down was. </p>

<p>And I think I accidentally skipped a question and forgot to go back to it... Ugh.</p>

the maximum possible number of green 2-door cars with metal alloys is 80.


woohoo, then I got that right! My intuition is good then!</p>

<p>Didn't anyone take the Oct 18. PSAT at their school?</p>

<p>lol i think i got 80M, 80W, and (hopefully) 55CR</p>

<p>when you said no errors do you just mean the identify the error part or the whole writing section counting the A's in the improving sentences part? b/c if you count all the A's in the improving sentences and all the E's in the no error, i definitely got more than 2.</p>

<p>Hey guys, was the artist one on multiple choice or fill in the blank? The one with 12 artists who submitted 17 total paintings...</p>
