x + 2y=6(Original post by rapdog)
how do you find the gradient of the line x + 2y =6
2y= 6  x
y = (6x)/2 = 6/2  x/2
y = 0.5 x + 3
y = mx + c
Gradient = m = 0.5

Rearrange it in the form y=mx+c
so you get:
2y=x+6
Divide the both sides by two to make y the subject:
y=x/2+3
So your gradient is x/2 (by the way which exam series question is this , for I want to confirm my answer, and please be quick in replying)

That just mean you give your above calculated answer to the upper bound of the particular situation in question.
Use these bounds to rite the value of root 2 to an app. degree of accuracy. You must show....and explain your answer (2)

how do you do this question because im pretty sure its kinematics "a body is moving in a straight line which passes through a fixed point O. the displacement s metres of the body from O at time t is given by s=t(cubed)+4t(squared)5t. (a) find the expression for the velocity, vm/s at time t seconds. (b) find the acceleration after 2 seconds. i think it pretty hard
this is question is in paper 3H may 2004 
Anyone have the mark scheme for the 2 jan 2012 papers?

how is a recurring decimal converted to fraction?

For part b, velocity differentiated is acceleration. To find the acceleration at 2 seconds, I think you substitute in the 2 for t. The equation should be 6t+8, so 6(2)+8= 20
Feel free to correct me if i'm wrong :/

t^3 becomes 3t^2.
5t is the equivalent of 5t^1. So that becomes just 5. (the t^1 becomes t^0 so its gone).
If it is a number with no letter after it such as just 10, then we just ignore it altogether as it becomes 10^0.
Note: 1/x is the equivalent of x^1 . So to differentiate it would become x^2. To find the acceleration, simply differentiate again your answer to the velocity and then substitute in the given acceleration. Finally, remember the positive and negative signs! 
If function graphs come up I'm fu!ked

yeh but i dont understand what it is or how you do it
(Original post by gabriel 41)
Okay, that's usually called "calculus" in simple terms. 
simultaneous equations question: 3x+4y=10 and 5x6y=53
i rearranged to 15x+20y=50 and 15x18y=69 and somehow got two completely incorrect answers...how would you progress from there? :/

look through papers like nov 2005 3H or more recent ones, theres some on that
its just like find f(3) on a graph 
has anybody got the mark scheme for may 2006 3H ?

is this the mathematics b specification?
anyway we've got the first paper tomorrow for me its the issue of timing rather than knowledge and application
