oh sorry, maybe I should have done it like this;

Now I just simplify the x terms ie simplfy

Is that easier to see now?

Now from here you have

do you see how the -2 and + 2 "cancel out" leaving you with;

now factoring out an x gives us

thanks so much
I got f(x) +2 = x2 + x
and then i factorise to get x(x+1)
make x = 0
I'm left with x=-1 and x=0?
thanks for the time

ya, set x(x+1) equal to 0 and solve to get x=-1 and x=0, perfect

good job

finished A2, I am on a gap year atm. Going to do maths and compsci next year if all goes to plan

yea i thought I recognised your name from the thread you made a fews about it. Are you AS atm doing maths early so you can do FM next year? or did you just take it up in A2 and only have a year to finish it?

I am also doing 6 this year

I like maths tbh, great subject but it needs a lot of work

I may consider doing further maths AS during my first year at uni though

good luck! i hope you get in, i feel annoyed i'm not going uni this year but if we get the best grades we are off next year!

good luck to you too yea but taking a year out will hopefully improve the next 3 of our lives so its worth it imo

Also keep asking questions on here when you are stuck, tsr is a great learning resource
