WOW, thanks. I understand it now. I never thought of it that way. It makes sense now!
It's different to other questions where you have to prove some number is a multiple of another. There is no factor of 6 that easily pops out so its a little bit more hidden.

I know, its a little unusual, haven't seen anything like it before. Well, on the bright side at least I understand it now. Thanks a lot for explaining, and please post more questions, if you have them.

(a) Solve the equation giving your answer in terms of and where .
(b) Find the value of such that only one solution exists to the quadratic equation.
(c) The line with equation intersects the curve with equation .
(i) Show , by forming and solving a pair of simultaneous equations by substituting an expression for y, that
.
(ii) Find the values of such that the line is tangent to the curve .
[Hint. The tangents to intersect the curve at only one point.]

Do you have the same for ocr maths foundation spec b??

Extension questions, for bright pupils like you. They make you think very hard and very carefully about certain topics.
