    how would i solve x|2x+a|-1=0
    I treated the modulus as a bracket and times 2x+a by x and got a quadratic....is this the right thing to do?

    That's not the way to solve equations with the modulus function! What are you solving here, x in terms of a? Add one to both sides and divide through by x (|2x+a|=1/x). Then do a quick sketch of the graphs |2x+a| and 1/x and consider points of intersection.

    The trig identity for cos(A) - cos(B) is in the formula booklet: -2sin(\frac{A+B}{2})sin(\frac{A-B}{2}).


    If you meant you wanted the proof:

    Use the identities
    cos(A + B) = cos(A)cos(B) - sin(A)sin(B)
    and
    cos(A - B) = cos(A)cos(B) + sin(A)sin(B)

    Subtract one from the other
    cos(A + B) - cos(A - B) = -2sin(A)sin(B)

    Let A + B = P and A - B = Q
    so, A = \frac{P + Q}{2} and B = \frac{P - Q}{2}

    Therefore, cos(P) + cos(Q) = -2sin(\frac{P + Q}{2})sin(\frac{P - Q}{2})

    And in your case, you'd just sub in the 5x and x as P and Q

    ok thanks Also if you have to sketch the function y= 3|x-1|-2 is this a y=f(|x|) . I sketched the graph correctly by doing the modules of x-1 in the x axis and then doing the scale factor 3 vertical stretch and translation 2 units down. Is this the wrong way to do it?

    isiit...my teacher was saying that y= 3|x-1|-2 would be a modulus in the y axis........are you doing s2 on tuesday ?

    CSS - Alala? Not sure if there's clapping in that though. I'll give it some thought and probably get back to you...

    I think it's Santogold.

    Can anyone help me? This song is sort of dance/electro/house, and it has a guy speaking in a really posh voice, and he says 'is this what all the trendy kids are listening to these days?' He also alludes parts of the song being electro or house or breakbeat. It ends with 'Remember, always stick to your guns' and 'peace out *************.'

    Rearrange x =4sin (2y + 6) in terms of y and substitute it into dy/dx

    Let x^2=y

    Solve y^2-8y-12=0
    thankyou!
    I was wondering if you could help with domains/range.
    How do you know if it is all real numbers XER or whatever.
    for the range do you put in the x values of the domain or x=0?
    i can only sometimes get these right xxx
