    I've had a crack at the first 2. I'm not sure though

    I solved the equation for y to get x and got 4 and -4.

    Therefore A is (-4,0) and B is (4,0)

    For the second part I used the distance formula... and got 8.


    For the 3rd part... I'm thinking to use dy/dx........
    When I use it, I then put in -4 for the x value to get the deepest point

    That bold part is correct, how did you solve it?

    Ah, well, I expanded out the brackets (forget about the y=) and got

    3x^2/16 - 3.

    Then I made it equal to zero and got 3x^2/16=3

    Times the 16 by the 3 to get 3x^2=48

    Then divided both sides by 3 and got x^2=16

    Therefore x=(+-)4

    For part 3 (iii) you use integration, but can someone go through it please?
    Thanks.

    To find area you always integrate for curves.

    Let me handwrite tit and then i will type up my method.

    Omg I just spent 20 mins typing it up in latex then when I went to press preview post for like the 10th time to check it was alright. The ****ing Internet randomly went now it is all gone!!! :rant:

    I am actually pissed off!!!!

    Basically, though just take the 3/16 out of the integrand and have it as a fraction. And change lower limit to 0 since it same as uppe rand times final answer ar 2. Simple as that!!

    Yes I can indeed.

    I see how to do it. Just do 1 - [P(O)+P(1)].

    Can't actually do it though now - in the middle of the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge
