Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

Exactly, I think the problem OP has is confidence or something, because I've never seen someone do that much working out. And I agree, you can do most things very quickly in your head.
Ahh yeah

Looks like it's an introduction to factorising so there's nothing wrong with extra working

Just needed help on these questionsX
If it helps here is a method for when you have a number in front of the x^2

Im sure thats gcse stuff?
There are quadratics at as as well??

Yeah i know , but like they are cubics at first right?

you should re-arrange the equations in the form y = mx + c and once you do that plot them as a graph... if you don't know how to plot the graph, take for example the y = -x +5
The +5 value is on the y axis. The -x represents how many steps you take (up or down) for example since it's minus I would go from 5 to 4 on the y axis and move 1 across on the x axis. Do this for both lines and where they meet at the centre are your co-ordinates

Ohhhh. Thanks X
I did this so far.
Just need a bit of help plotting the points.

If you find it easier you can draw the lines by looking at the 5 on the y axis and the 5 on the x axis and drawing a line straight through those points... i kinda over complicated it in my previous post and it may have confused you

Awh this just made my day X

Fine, but where are my manners? for solving the equation terms very well and help me at the same time, you get seven reputation points. Take it!

Think I'll make a separate thread for this, kind of hard.

bi have no idea what you're on about? Those are polynomials... Something completely different..

We dont have to solve all this in C1 & C2 ...

with my exam board you have polynomials in c1, and quadratics in every module in some form or the other
