That's me. I ended up not solving for it.

I did that. But, got it right. We have discussed this before I plugged in numbers. It took around 30 seconds.

How many times has someone gone from a fail to pass due to an appeal?

I know of one guy whose appeal was accepted years ago and was informed that despite that he still failed.

Oh yeah, smart! Hopefully I will remember the trick in case something similar comes up in Exam 9.

I've heard of a legendary guy whose result changed from fail to pass twice and both times he didn't even appeal...someone else appealed..
