    for 2015 question 4 part i, I don't get why m=0. I mean I know how they got to m=0 but I don't know why that means m is 0

    if you have a circle of \displaystyle (x-m)^2 + (y-h)^2 = r^2
    and all you know is that it passes through (-1,0) and (1,0)
    then couldn't m,h,r = -1,+1,1
    or
    m,h,r = -2,2,5

    all these values give a circle that passes through those points??

    On the syllabus, only c1/c2 knowledge is required, although doing more maths will be useful

    Question 1H. Is there a way to calculate how many multiples of 2, 3 and 2 &3 there are in 6000 or any other number for that matter or is it just a known fact or something

    think about the sequnce
    1,2,3,4,5,6
    2 of those out of 6 are just multiples of 2
    1 of those out of 6 are multiples of 3
    1 of those out of 6 are multiples of 2 and 3

    so 6000/6 = 1000
    1000 lots of +4
    1000 lots of +3

    6000/3 = 2000
    2000 lots of +2

    giving a total of 11000

    That was the only part of the question I could do ( I think)
    I put those two points into the equation and got 2 simultaneous ones where h and r cancelled out leaving 4m equals 0, so m equals 0 if that makes sense.
    yeah i know i got that, but what im confused about is that the other points work too

    I'm not too sure... I'm in year 12 so it's still another year until I'm doing the MAT but I just like doing the questions because I've done most of C1 & C2 - although I really should stop using all the MAT papers because I should revise from them next year . On the thread, people are doing AEA (but requires C3/C4 knowledge). Maybe try some of the UKMT senior challenge questions - or maybe those from the Olympiad
