Gregorius,

This might be a very stupid question, and it probably is, but Edexcel FP2 doesn't really teach this properly so I couldn't get the intuition behind it.

If is the interior of the circle and if then is ? Or is it sign? How do I get intuition behind this, it makes more sense for it to be less than 1 since it is the interior of the circle, but then I don't get the necessary inequalities.

Again, I am pretty embarrassed of this, so don't judge.
It's the less than. When you have you are looking at the set of points z that are a distance b from point a. So if you want the interior of you want the points
where b' is less than b.

OT: what has happened to the TSR editor?!

Interesting. That is what I thought exactly, but then is an incorrect implication, and this is how you get to the two inequalities and . (Question 1 of Example sheet 1 for V&M)

Yeah, they made some changes to TSR; pretty annoying if you ask me.

Do the normal z=x+iy and look at the distances.

Yeah, I see now thanks.

Looks like triangle inequality to me.

Of course it does. That is how I got to that implication, but then it requres the sign since you get

Assuming you have the same problem I do (weird text boxes and stuff), you can switch between WYSIWYG and BBcode in a button in the "Advanced" set of options in the editor

PRSOM That's worked!

The triangle inequality with a difference is:

How is IA bro?

Oh, whoops. That's my mistake haha.

Thanks m8!

Haven't started it quite yet (bro)... just got a few (quite urgent) things to sort out after my exams (including a slight cold), so I'll probably start on it tomorrow

How did I ever get an offer with this incredibly lazy mentality, I wonder?
12. V&M Example Sheet 1 - Question 5

How do I show that

has infinitely many solutions for ?

Or is my initial assumption that incorrect? Or is my whole method of working through this problem wrong?

Tagging Gregorius
13. Is anyone learning Analysis I here? I have begun reading the lecture notes but am in two minds between learning Analysis I or Vectors and Matrices. Essentially I want to do the one which I will most enjoy, and hopefully attempt some of the Example Sheets. Does anyone have any recommendations or any advice having done Analysis I?

Thanks.

and working from there?

All right, gonna try that, after I finish eating though. However, is it possible to show that it has infinite solutions using my method?

I wouldn't start with Analysis. Do some other course that helps build up your proving skills first before getting into that. So I'd recommend Numbers and Sets, but I suppose you could go for V&M.
17. On a seperate note, do users have to continually tag others in every post? Posting your question here is enough, somebody will notice and respond in due course. Not sure if I'm the only one that feels that way. Feel free to disagree.

I'll give N&S a look.

I know you are talking about me. No problem, I will stop tagging people.

Ah ok. Very nyc.
Shudda thought this was undergrad type ****.

Absolutely a terrible method for this integral. Your method is the best
