Weekly Practice Questions for Exam C

I am posting weekly practice questions for Exam C at
my website www.sambroverman.com (take the
"Question of the Week" link). There is also information
at the website about the review classes that I will
be conducting for Exam C for the Spring exam session,
and there is an excerpt of the ACTEX study guide that I
have written for the exam.

I think there are some typos for Exam C:

1) Week of December 5
"The empirical estimate of the cdf of X is also found based on the ogive of the grouped data set, and the estimate of the 45-th percentile is B."

The 45-th should be 25-th.

2) Week of December 19

The questions was asking for P[3<X<6|X<=9], the solution says we are to estimate [S(5)-S(3)] / S(9).

Shouldn't it be [S(3)-S(5)]/[1-S(9)]?
