Add x and y then substitute in
Negging me is somewhat unnecessary, no?
6. Hi! I found something called the "common mistake "section in the c2 maths CD , there's one part that i dont understand

Whats meant by "not actually a mistake"?

I didnt know how to tackle this question ( to use the integration and equation L )

10. 2 weird but urgent questions but how do you know when to solve a quadratic equation using two brackets - also in a log table - is x at the top row or is it the other way round ?

For the first one, if you are able to factorise it, then factorise it. But not all quadratics will be able to be solved that way. I'm not sure what you mean by the next part.

Basically I'm asking how many terms do you need to solve quadratically - via brackets of qp - I'm also asking that when you get a table on a logs graph q - is the top row the x value or the y value when plotting it on a graph ?

If you have something like , you can write this as . However, if you have something like , you would need to solve this by completing the square or by substituting into the quadratic formula. Only quadratics with at least two terms can be factorised.

Does it not tell you in the table which row is which?

Following on from my suggestion,, have you tried any STEP DE's/Induction? If so, how have you found it?

I'm going to be honest with you and say I haven't yet as I've been practising on my Maths and Chemistry for the mocks I have but I'm devoting 3 hours tomorrow to STEP either for a mock or some questions and I'll make sure that I'll do one of those topics and let you know how I found them.
16. How do you work out normal distribution with quartiles?
17. Quick question:

Given

show that x varies between

and for large positive values of t

I understand that the term involving e will tend to 0, and I understand what they have done to obtain the answer

Why do you do this? Apologise for the vague question, I just can't wrap my head around it.
18. I've suddenly started getting email updates whenever someone posts on this thread, any idea how to stop it?

This in an idea called the harmonic functions. Essentially, we can express the sum of any sine and cosine as a single trig function:

In order to do this, expand the RHS:

Knowing your values of a and b, you can then solve for values of R and c in order to express it as a single function:

You can then use a bit of re-arrangement to find a and b:

So

And you can work out C by dividing the two equations to get something involving tan only. This is how they've got the root 5; by expressing the function as a single trigonometric function.
