    Along with the below, yep

    also how did they get the inequalities x>=a and x<=-a ?
    The maximum and minimum values cos(theta) can take as theta varies is 1 and -1 respectively. By using that, you should get those inequalities.

    Find the vector equation of AB, and c must lie on this line

    Edit: nvm see teeEms post, I read it as collinear

    For 11a, I found the vector AC
    So r=AC+ lambda (AB) +mu (d)

    But in the answers, they do
    r=OA+lambda(AB) +mu (d)

    Why?

    You just need a point in the plane, hence OA

    Does it? Surely (AB) x (AC) =0 ?

    Or are they the same thing

    Edit: nvm I read it as collinear, thought I'd outsmarted you there (it wasn't to be :/)

    they've used the equation r = a + sb + tc where a is a position vector

    in your method you cannot use AC as there is an unkown. i personally would've have found AB x d = n and then formed the vector equation using (r-a)xb=0 but this method seems simpler.

    You should probably get back up to speed with the text book, maybe do some questions from that and when you feel like you know your stuff past papers. I haven't bothered with FP3 for a while and I've basically got Thursday through Sunday to look back at it and S2 (gotta prepare for physics tomorrow) so I'll likely be doing similar soon

    Hi can anyone help with question 4a) from the old set of questions for FP3 please?
    I always get stuck on these type of questions, but I'm confused with the limits and how to use them to get the (pi/2)^n.

    cross product of two vectors gives the vector perpendicular to both, if you want i can draw a diagram to help visualise it, this concept is a little more harder when you try to think of the reasoning
