Factorise first without the y:

5x^2 + 4x - 12

The answer will be similar with a couple of added 'y's. See if you can work it out.
5. Me, I'm rather unprepared since I missed out of getting an A* in my January Maths iGCSE by 1 mark, so I sat it again. As a result I had minimal time to focus on Further Maths
6. Me... but I haven't really prepared.
I done most of it in the first module of A-level Maths, lucky lol. Need to revise at least 1 hour, can't do past papers no time need to revise for Chemistry.

(5x-6y)(x+2y)

Is this right?

Well im not exactly promising mine will be amazing either, but seeing as how you're actually doing the course I'd say your answers will be worth considering at the least

Haha..,okay...I'll try and help..but no promises on even one of the questions being answered rightly by me...

I feel you, I'm having the same difficulty covering everything on the Further Maths spec

However I'm also on AQA for Chemistry, so I've already done my exams Good luck with yours!

Thanks lol.
My only problem is that I started revising for both of the exams today, so I haven't finished neither of the exam's content.
Chemistry is half done, Further Maths idek.
20. I'm on OCR for chemistry so that's this afternoon!!! And I have a clash for further maths so that's this morning, I get it early 😁
