    Is it weird that I'm going to miss this thread and all of the people in it once we go to university? It's actually a sad thought
    That's sweet! I'm sure you'll meet similarly nice people on the relevant uni thread!

    Oh really? That's lovely - I haven't actually seen the uni yet, just the city quite a lot - that's really great to know though. The accommodation seems so hit & miss.
    I'll just warn you now- pretty much all of the buildings are 70s style concrete so yeah, not as nice as the actual city

    she said maybe again, but at least I'm allowed to do stuff other than c3 and c4 in lessons now
    what happened? Are they not allowing you to do your own modules?

    We can just start a Class of 2014 thread in chat? :yep:

    Oh, and any mathematicians mind to taking a look at something for me? Not a problem per se, I'd just like to see how something can be done... :holmes:

    In summary:
    S1remark - no
    Avoid D1 - no
    Do more than just c3 and c4 in lessons - yes
    Afm - maybe

    Thank you!

    Basically, an example in my textbook has this expression:
    x^2(3(x+2)^2) + (x+2)^2(2x)

    And has factorised it into

    x(x+2)^2(3x + 2(x+2))

    Now am I missing something obvious here? I tried for half an hour to get that factorised expression but couldn't do it! Where on earth are you meant to start?

    That's strange, my teachers are trying to persuade me to do AFM AS, but I just keep refusing as I have 2 other subjects (on top of Maths and FM) to do aswell.

    you could always redo S1, if you wanted?

    Take out x and (x+2)^2 as a factor from both sides and see what you end up with

    Take out of common factor of x and (x+2)^2 and you will see they got it wrong there is no x+2 left over

    That's a really weird way they've written the original expression :eyeball:Edit: nevermind, you've edited your post now.

    The answer isn't equivalent to your expression.

    I keep getting halfway there then losing my way. I think I'm too tired.

    Let me get some coffee and I'll give it another go.

    Right, that's strange. There was a second question which I couldn't do either for the same reason. Nice of the book to waste my lesson. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for clearing that up you 3. I thought I was going mad!

    I see what you mean but S1 mark isn't really of that much importance for Maths, it's more important for things like Economics , so I doubt it'll disadvantage you much.
