Oh see I got that. Thing is cuz it is repeated roots I was thinking it had to be the same factors. But they are different factors yet still the same route!!!!!!!!!
By the way, are you doing A-Level or O-Level?

I thought that you are doing GCSE, but i was confused that why you have made thread asking A-Level questions.

Are you doing A-Level maths with GCSE?

I am doing A-Level, 2nd year, you will find more data in my TSR profile.

I have only made an A-Level ICT Thread as I have been taking AS-Level ICT in year 10 and 11.

I am doing Additional Maths FSMQ alongside GCSE which is basically C1 and a bit of C2 and a bit fo the main 3 applied moudles endindg in 1.

Have self taught my self a lot of A-Level but am still doing it next year. I know C1-3, S1, a bit of C4 and M1, and then half of FP1 (complex numbers and Argand Diagrams mainly)

EDIT: Lol M4; I meant M1

I reckon you are a potential STEP candidate, right? because you have learned a lot of A-Level at O-Level.

I did attempt actually a STEP I paper a few months back (1980 summat).

Got all of the first 3 questions fully correct and a few fragments from others! So what would have probably been about 75 (counting 5 for each fragment). Was an easy paper though; that is why I attempted it. Got a 2! I decided not to do anymore though as I will do them when I have learnt the entire A-Level syllabus.

I wouldn't sit STEP now though as I am definitely not mature and not fluent enough in my algebraic manipulation! Hopefully in the future though!

Btw why did you do O-Levels and not GCSE?

My school used to do O-level, but they have now converted to IGCSE, we were the last batch.
