    part b
    you know nb=12
    now for the x^2 coefficient
    it's equal to n(n-1)/2! (bx)^2
    so n^2-n/2 b^2 =70
    solve the simultaneous equations

    Guys when do I need to change from degrees to radians mode on my calc? HELP
    if the question is about pi, then you do radians. most of the stuff on sectors will be in radians aswell.

    Guys, if you have a right angled triangle when finding the area do you use: 1/2*b*h or the 1/2*a*b*sinC?

    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?
    Yes always use radians, otherwise if you use degrees, the arc length would be enormously big. For example, consider a sector with a radius of 6cm and an angle of 60 degree.

    Arc length using degrees would give 360cm, whereas using radians would give 2pi.

    BxH/2

    1/2ab x sinC is for non right angle triangles

    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
    Thanks, I tend to use a formula with nCr which looks like:

    (a)^n + (a)^n-1 x (bx)^r x (nCr)

    When I tried using it for questions with an unknown power, it was tough when it came to the nCr part.

    Just use the other one it's easier and you'll have to use it in c4 anyway so you'll be good at it before you even need it

    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?

    draw a line from B to the x axis you have a triangle

    then find the area from the limits A-B and then subtract the triangle which = area of R

    Give an example of question.
    I find it tricky sometimes usually when there are years involved.
