# Maths help please C2 circle theorems watch

No they're not. I know I wrote down the wrong signs, but in the lines where I go from the discriminant inequalities I jump a few stages in my head. I didn't know at the time that I had got the inequality signs wrong remember. So my final answers are correct.

The stage that I did in my head could, admittedly, have done with some written workings (well, in one sense), but it all boils down to reversing an inequality sign when one divides through by a negative. I've checked it graphically too. And after one has completed part a), it's not hard to logically deduce the answers to parts b) and c), which is why my written workings suffered, but not ​my answers.
Ah .... I see now

Tbh I assumed that you wre using b^2-4ac (mainly because you said that you were)

So now you have full solutions that give correct answers but gave incorrect working out ... Even worse than simply giving a full solution

I will ask you once again to remove the solutions

I admit, the use of my 'implies' signs wasn't strictly mathematically sound.

But...at least I got the answers correct.

Could you provide me with a link or something similar which shows or states the relevant rule(s) for the situation at hand?

It is a sticky on the front page of maths

It just says that it's frowned upon and not actually against the TSR Rules and/or Terms and Conditions.

I assume that means you will not be removing your solutions
6. What pen do you use?
(Original post by SH0405)
Really? Everyone at school keeps saying that, but I didn't think it was that great. :/

Staples Strata 0.7mm. Epic.

nonsense
Please don't be abusive to other Forum members when they point out the guidelines for posting. I have reported your post.

We discourage the posting of full solutions and try to help posters learn by giving them hints and explanations so that they can work through problems by themselves.
9. Thank you very much, very clear now cheers😁

Here you go:

The discriminant inequality signs in parts b) and c) should be swapped.
I'll point you to the Study Help Guidelines here. Under the section 'answering questions' it states the following.

''Wherever possible try to guide the asker to the answer rather than just giving the answer straight off! Not much is learned by doing this and the asker may not understand why the answer is what it is.

This Socratic Method of learning - where people ask a question and learn the answer to it by directed prodding and questioning - leads to the best results and understanding.

Not all types of question lends itself to this type of technique but where possible it should be employed and full solutions (especially to calculations) should only be posted as a last resort or a significant misunderstanding has developed. It is at the moderators' discretion to remove, edit or even warn posts that flout this rule, particularly if the post occurs after someone has tried to guide them through the answer.
''

I have decided, given that you allowed no opportunity for OP to work the solution out on their own, to delete the relevant parts of your posts. Whilst we appreciate your help on this website, we want to focus on helping others learn, rather than just giving away the answers. This isn't a formal warning, but please keep this in mind around Study Help in future
