1. Firstly, Find the x coordinates of intersection of the curves y = (x+3) (x-2) (x-1) & y = 3/2 (x+2) (2-x)?

And then Hence find the area between the two curves where x > 0

Thanks for any help!
2. C3 is over, thanks for playing the game! Better luck next time

Some people have it in June.
4. He might just be really, really eager?

Edit; and if you really want to know, make = to 0

Since y = (x+3) (x-2) (x-1) & y = 3/2 (x+2) (2-x), you've got (x+3) (x-2) (x-1) = 3/2 (x+2) (2-x).
They equal one another because you want to find where they intersect.

So then you can rearrange and solve for x...?

EDIT: For the area between the two curves, you'd use integration - remember the area is the integral of 'the top curve minus the bottom curve'. To determine which curve is the 'top' one and which the 'bottom' one, consider the turning points of each function (easy to read off, because both curves' equations are fully factorised for you).

Oops read the question wrong!! Sorry!
Make the 2 equations equal to eachother and solve to find x

and also this is not C3

Why am I revising? No... It's called homework, learn to use an apostrophe.

what, so you can't do questions for an exam if it's five months away?

and what makes you think it's not C3?
