I think it should be noted that I started condescending you (that is different from patronising) AFTER you blatently ignored my correct description of this problem.

I am in no way sounding arrogant here but I can firmly say my knowledge of this topic is beyond yours and you are merely wasting my time and distracting me when you post incorrect and downright nonsensical posts in a thread that i answered long ago (or a few hors before you replied).
Yes you are being a jerk. Well done.

Don't worry though all people who think they are good at maths are in my experience it comes with the territory. Fine, but not everyone has FP1 I didn't even study FP1. I studied from completely different texts. It might be wise in future to clarify what you mean instead of asking obtuse questions and then giving condescending answers? Just a tip if you ever want to go into teaching and not alienate anyone who tries to help.

Cut the attitude it's not very helpful to anyone.

From the first post of the thread it seemed like the original poster wanted to solve a certain differential equation, in which case the substitution in the second post would have been relevant. I guess this is what happens when people don't post the entire question...
Precisely there's no point having semantic arguments, lets cut to the chase.

Apologies for my tone, but I don't respond well to condescension.

 \frac{dy}{dx} = f(x) is an equation and i gathered from my knowledge of further maths module 1 that y was reuired as a function of x.

If he wanted to differentiate he would have stated;

 \frac{d}{dx} \frac{40cosx}{5-3sinx} = f(x) what is f(x) ? .
True; but the fact that he was totally nonplussed when you suggested substituting suggests he was trying to differentiate it . . .

wow - gee that never happens. Someone is blatently wrong tries to correct the person who has given the correct answer.

After that very person who gave the correct answer tries to help him see where he has gone wrong, he is met with a stream of garbage about how is completely irrelevant method can be applied here.

Shocker the person who knows what to do gets annoyed at this person.

Spoiler:
Show
just to make things crystal - I am the person who got the right method. You are the person posting garbage.

perfectly plausible - JMonkey should learn from you. A sound and credible observation that certainly justifies your previous post.

You should learn some damn manners instead of being a jerk. But I guess we both learnt nothing here. People don't tend to learn anything when you spend all your time being an ******* to people. It's one of those life lessons, you might want to take on board.

It said differential in the op. It was confusing to me and someone else. You had the FP1 book at hand so it made perfect sense, end of story. If I learnt anything it's never to post in the maths forums, because if you do some idiot is bound to be trying to promote his oversized ego by demeaning others.

I did not have that in mind but after dealing with you before it seemed the only way.

The substitution you want is 5-3sinx anyway, not sinx. OP: you haven't actually posted a question. In future be more explicit about what you want and what help you need.

Have you ever thought that it might be you as well?

Anyway I pretty much have heard the chimes at midnight that's me out of this thread and this part of the forum. I think I'll just lurk and laugh at people who make mistakes, instead of just patronising people like you do. Seems a better sort of schardenfreuder and I don't have to talk to people with no social skills.

Adios. Christ on a bike what a waste of time.

If you actually read my posts you will see this never happens - only people like you do I condescend (not patronise - the difference is quite easy why don't you understand you ******* idiot) as you really do piss me off to say the very least.

DeanK22: genuinely try a little sugar with that condescending vinegar.


Main Entry:
pa·tron·ize/patronise

1 : to act as patron of : provide aid or support for 2 : to adopt an air of condescension toward : treat haughtily or coolly 3 : to be a frequent or regular customer or client of

Yeah I get the difference.

English though is clearly not your strong point.

Anyway I'm out of this part of the forum for good; people like you ruin these sorts of forum for people who are genuinely trying to be helpful without the patronising bs.

Mathmos if they ever learnt to socialise they'd rule the Earth. :laugh:

or be good at maths and socialise - the two aren't mutually exclusive.

To add my input for what it's worth..

The thread title is FP1 differentials question which gives us the clue that it might be a differential equation to be solved using methods from FP1.

As such Dean was of course right. He doesn't need me to point that out but still, I sympathise.
