# Year 13 Maths Help Thread Watch

UK Senior Mathematics Challenge held annually to Year 12 and Year 13 students.
Oh, it's not really talked about much on here so I've never seen it abbreviated. I'm not really sure what you're expected to know and what you're not tbh.

I'll get the ball rolling. If anyone is out there who has done some trigonometry and want to put their knowledge to the test, here's a tough question they can try if they want to. (Probably not many for another few months at least). I made it up a while ago.

For the solving the equation the question should really state that 0<x<90.

Nice question?

Looks very hard

Might want to spoiler it. Might make the new Y13's run away from the thread

It's alright actually. Plenty of guidance. I did that so people wouldn't just lose interest when seeing an expression like that.

This is an SMC problem which I solved, but I want to know if there is a way of solving it non-manually:

Let . Calculate .
I think actually that they are using the notation that . So it would just be composing the function with itself 5 times for .

Is there any rigorous shortcut that enables one to solve the question quickly? I deduced manually that for from to , but I can't actually prove it for all n.

I'll have a proper look later, but perhaps it may be useful to see if this pattern holds for a few more and if it does use induction to prove the result (if it is true). Can be much easier than a direct proof, maybe so in this case.

If you consider it will become very clear that you can write a general expression for explicitly, and it's very easy to just define in more than 1 way.

Sure.

12. Hello, friends. I'm just curious! Have you ever used online homework help services like https://assignment.essayshark.com/math-help.html to do your math assignments? Did they work fine for you? I'm considering giving it a try.

Homework help services? I've never went to lengths of that for homework lol. Just post some problems, or ideas you dont understand, here.

My D2 textbook has arrived I feel like a 6th former again.
Reminds me - I should buy M4 and M5.

15. I'll be working on M3, D2 and S3 this year. Perhaps M4, 5 and S4 depending on whether I find them too insane.

17. Silly question but is this thread for maths alone or can FM students use it as well?
