Could anyone explain how to do this question (part c)? I got 3.74 but the mark scheme says 3.61?
Form a right angled triangle with PRN, the right angle of course being at N
Use the dot product to find the cosine of the angle between PR and PN
Then your distance RN is PRsin(theta) where theta is the (acute) angle you worked out

how do you verify a column vector is an eigenvector of a matrix?

If the matrix is A and the column vector is v, then Av=(correspondingeigenvalue)*v

Haven't done the FP3 ones but his FP2 ones on complex numbers were pretty... complex.

Yeah i saw that in a textbook, but didnt seem convincing to me, i was thinking of just finding eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors but maybe thats unnecessary thanks anyway

Hope so. I'm in the high 50s/ low 60s in III, borderline in both . WBU what's your offer?

How did you do in STEPI? Perhaps,if you have an S this can save you.

Any strong FP3ers out there?

Try this integration (without clues) if you are hard enough...
I will write and post solutions after my dinner (about 1 hour)

Na prob got a 1 in I and II. Maybe a 1 in III. Most likely results is 1,1,2

Hm, got 8.29 (3sf) but have a feeling I made a mistake somewhere in the calculation :/

Perhaps you are right...
in an exam you will be given a substitution

use 2x = -1 + 4 coshθ

I expanded it and then completed the square then used the sub of
x+1= ((squrt19)/2) cosh(theta)

i got an answer but i'm far from a STRONG fp3er

update: i think im wrong, solution not complete, gonna give up at this point taking too much time =[

the method is correct
not sure if your substitution is correct.

try my substitution

either you are very modest or a very good "cheater"!

got like 11.66 but not checked and owing to some of the numbers I obtained I reckon something went wrong early on; think I got the method though..

edit: by the method I mean a method.

mhmm, thought i got it but the solution was wayyy too short, so had a feeling it wasn't right.
