    Guys you know if d2y/dx2 is > 0 it's a MINIMUM

    d2y/dx2 < 0 it's a MAXIMUM

    If d2y/dx2 = 0 is it point of inflection? What do you do next 3rd differential or something idk? How can you make sure
    You wouldn't do anything after that except for if you have time at the end then run through the question again

    Just come across this question on an IAL, have no idea how to do it and not sure if its part of our spec
    12x= 1 x nx
    x's cancel therefore nb=12

    Hope you understand this :P Because a circle is 2pi and if you divide a circle into 6 little triangles, you get the angle pi/3

    misread the question: Most of the time area of a sector, area/ length. They would probably want you to use sin/cosine in radians too.

    Also sometimes in trig identities

    Soo confused?


    in some question the geometric sequence power r has been subtracted by minus 1 in other question it remains unchanged.
    how do we know when to subtract 1 or leave r with no power?

    yeah just use the 1 + nx ting
    Care to elaborate?

    Whenever the question is to do with sectors and area of triangles. Also for some trig equations, it will state the interval in which would imply whether you use radians or degree.

    Don't think that's anything to do with our spec.

    If d2y/dx^2 is 0, if you differentiate it again and does not equal 0, then it's a point of inflexion
    & if in the 3rd differential is 0? Then it's inconclusive?

    Its called equating co-effiecients

    in the formula booklet there are two formulae for binomial expansions

    one is in the form ( 1 +x)^n
    where the first number has to be 1
    so if I had (3+6x)^ 4
    I would have to do first of all ( 3(1+2x) ) ^4 then 81 (1 +2x)^4
    then you just follow the formula
    it's easier than the nCr crap

    Do you guys think we would be expected to know formulas for 3d shapes? E.g. cylinder, cone, sphere, etc?
    I pretty certain it will come up and I hope it does. It's really easy and worth a lot of marks.

    but if I'm using the equation for example when the angle given is in radians and I want to find the arc length, so the formula is theta x r, do I still need to switch to radians mode?

    Whenever you see superscript c / rad - usually this is for angles in triangles or circle questions

    Also if you're asked to solve for x in a sin/cos/tan question with ...pi<x<...pi you'll need to use radians.
