    start as early as possible worked for me
    I mean, preparation for an exam, would the focus be on going through questions , or remembering content ect

    When I type it in I get the same expansion I had But it'd probably be worth trying to do it exact

    definitely ... it also gives more plesure when you "kill" it

    By now you should be doing pats papers (as many as you can lay your hands on) and exam style questions.
    (Maths is not about remembering, particularly that close to exams.)

    the non limit one (mathematician to be)
    the limit one without substitution (engineers and physisists...)

    joking

    well done as they very hard
    thank you. this has motivated me to get started with fp3 revision tomorrow. I am going to be a chemical engineer and I've heard there is more maths than chemistry in it .. so should be fun!

    Part C in the mark scheme makes the point that the vectors lie in the same plane, and that its a parallelogram, how can they get this information from the question/answers that i worked out?

    Thanks

    crossing 2 vectors produces a vector which is perpendicular to both.
    if you dot is with a third vector and you get zero this implies that this vector lies in the same plane as the first two you crossed.

    so they are coplanar...

    (There is another explanation with volumes...)

    Tip for people who take physics and are doing FP3. axb can be figured out using right hand grip rule.

    Do you mean Flemings left/right hand rule? Grip rule is to do with direction of the field or something

    ah, so if that is true, are they on the same plane and also 90 degrees to each other?

    if they are on the same plane, does that mean that the tetrahedron 0ABC, has no volume since it has no vertical height.

    also can i deduce that it is a parallelogram because, of part A, where the triangle has an area, so two of these OABC form a parallelogram on the same plane

    oh i see, by the third vector you mean the perpendicular vector(e.g from a,b), so if i do the dot with the perpendicular and the final vector(c) to get 0 then all three a,b,c lie on the same plane.

    You have amazing understanding! Thank you for your help

    3 out of 5 times, when i copying the vector from question to answer booklet, i copied it wrong. Today once again, and I did a whole page of cross product/matrix equations after that.

    Hey bud, that was a very challenging question because of the trigonometry stuff, however the concepts are true if you keep to them you can do the question.

    1) Find the gradient between the two points
    2) Use the equation of the line
    3) Use algebra manipulation by the factor formula in the c3 section of the book [ this is the tricky part]
    4) Sub the factor formula into the question of your line, and then at the very last part apply double angle formula HINT [ Cos ( a - b) formula is used]

    Hope this helps

    June 14 was a gift of a paper! Only really difficult question where I lost marks was the co-ordinate geometry one, with the equation of the chord. Any tips for these questions? I absolutely dread them.

    Hey bro i had a bit of difficulty finding the eigenvector (1) because if any other value was used of y,z instead of x first you get a completely different vector, can you explain why?
