    Hi guys, best ways to revise for math, bio , chem and history? Any help much appreciated! If I haven't done any independent work, will it hinder my chances of getting an A?

    I don't know the 'best ways' for you to revise for your subjects because they differ between people. My mind works differently to yours and ideally this should be something that you work out for yourself.

    I would, however, recommend doing past papers (especially for maths) to identify particular areas for improvement.

    I've never tried rum, but I will admit that beer isn't my favourite either

    I still prefer it to wine though. I've never seen/read it, but I feel betrayed by Bridget Jones. Vile stuff :unimpressed: .

    I despise wine I THOUGHT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE GRAPES :emo:

    I don't think I've tried beer enough to really have an opinion. I give up after the disgustingness touches my lips

    I'm relatively certain I don't like any alcohol (so far), which is obviously why I put it in other, delicious things :lol: Limoncello slushie and vodka :coma:

    ok wtf

    The expansion of (a+x)^n where n\in\mathbb{N} has the form:

    a^n + ... + \alpha x^r + \beta x^{r+1} + \gamma x^{r+2} + ... + x^n

    a. Show that the ratio of \frac{\alpha}{\beta} is \frac{r+1}{n-r} a

    b. If a=1 show that the expansion will contain two consecutive terms with the same coefficient as long as n is odd.

    c. Using the result of part a. deduce and expression for \frac{\beta}{\gamma}

    d. Prove that there are no values for a such that in the expansion of (a+x)^n, n\in\mathbb{N}, three consecutive terms have the same coefficient.

    I've got no exams this year apart from mocks so no exam leave

    which is good I guess cause I'll end up not doing any work ^_^
