how do you find the max of 2root5sin(3thetha-1.107)^2
Well the Max value will be when sin3theta-1.107 is 1. So what would the min value be?

They would be the values of theta such that sintheta =1 or sin theta =0 respectively

there's a section in the textbook that I have (cambridge C3 A2 maths for edexcel) which is concerned with proof by contradiction, definite proofs etc. I've only seen one question on it though and that was on an elmwood paperName:  Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 18.11.51.png

yeah that's what I'm hoping for, but if you look on this: http://www.waldomaths.com/docs/edex/..._6665_Spec.pdf

"Methods of proof, including proof by contradiction and disproof bycounter-example, are required."

I doubt proof by contradiction would come up....ever. But knowing Edexcel this year and how hellbent they are to prove to the world that A levels are not easy at all, they might sneak it in and come up with some random twisted reason for how it is in the specification -_-

It isn't on the syllabus, but that's a very nice question. (I assume you're meant to consider the parity of the factors?)

Using Log rules (power one specifically) raise the 1/2 up to the 9 which becomes √9 (using indice laws) and therefore that becones 3. So e^1/2ln9 = e^ln3
