    Have you finished the whole syllabus for the exam (FM GCSE)?
    Rep me for my intelligence :lol:
    Yeah kins of but the main thing is as i said silly mistakes that take away my marks :lol: and also sometimes not reading the question carefully.
    Have you finished your syllabus?

    There is a turning point at (0,0), not an inflection point though.
    Ok no idea, I haven't drawn out the graph... I am doing other things at the same time lol.

    I actually finished around half of the syllabus lol, I've just learnt most of it in A-level maths and I'm so lazy I didn't bother.
    I'm going to learn the syllabus today lol..

    Hmmm, no inflection point at (0,0).
    Try this question. I need help
    Find the stationary points and determine their nature of the curve
    y=0.1x5+x2-x3-x
    x coordinates of stationary points:

    x = -2.78 or x = 2.14

    No, as in I done GCSE Maths in Year 10, so I started like the first module of A-level Maths.
    I wish I had done it properly lol I'd have finished it in Year 11, anyway whatever.
    I need to start revising at 5:30 for this exam - I'm going to go into the exam having done no past papers, as usual.
    Going to play a bit of games now lol

    Idk what nature of a curve is - only heard of it before.

    It means the question is asking for the stationary points and whether the staionary points are max, min or inflection.

    Yes lol
    So then tell me, what are the stationary points, maximum, minimum or inflection points?

    Already told you the stationary points and could've gave the full co-ordinates but clearly, I was too busy hence why I stopped replying. I will do this tomorrow or if you are so desperate, later at midnight.

    No actually find the stationary points and determine whether they are minimum maximum or points of inflection of the curve y=x4 .
