    I was lucky enough to get 6 pages of holiday revision on Wednesday!
    I'm having trouble with these..

    *Show that tanA+cotA=2cosecA for all possible values of A.

    *Find z if 3z-i=2+iz
    I subbed in z=x+iy and got down to;
    2x+y=i(-2y+x+1)
    I don't know what to do now..

    *Sketch and describe the locus of |z-1+i| is smaller or equal to 3.
    I expanded that out and got;
    |x+iy-1+i|<3
    |(x-1)+i(y+1)|<3
    and I don't know what to do...

    *AB, Ac are chords of a circle such that AB=AC. P and Q are two points on the chord BC, and AP, AQ meet the circle again at R and S. Let angle ABC=a and angle BCS=b. Prove that the points P, Q, S and R are concyclic.
    Here's what it looks like..

    Any help would be great

    tanA + cotA
    = sinA/cosA + cosA/sinA
    =(sin^2A + coz^2A)/cosAsinA
    = 1/cosAsinA
    =1/(0.5sinA)
    =2cosec2A

    So i think you may have typed the question out wrong or i made a stupid mistake :p:


    2)Now what you do is equate real and imaginary parts:

    Equating real parts: 2x + y = 0
    Equating imaginary parts: -2y + x + 1 = 0

    Giving two simultaneous equations which you can solve

    (this is assuming that you have subbed in and rearranged correctly)

    3)|(x-1)+i(y+1)|<3

    sqrt((x-1)^2 + (y+1)^2) < 3

    (x-1)^2 + (y+1)^2 < 9

    Therefore it is a circle with centre (1,-i) and radius 3


    Soz Im a bit tired and am going to go to bed now so i cant do the last one right now. Im not sure if you have rearanged your eqaution from qu 2 correctly, but Im to tired to check :p: Havent been to sleep in about 38 hours . Iapologise for any errors

    Thanks for the help rpotter!

    I need to remember to make my Zs look like Zs and not the number 2! I just realised that I wrote one of the questions down wrong becasue of that!

    For 3z-i=2+iz, is this correct?
    3(x+iy)-i=2+i(x+iy)
    3x+3iy-i=2+ix-y
    3x-2+y=ix-3iy+i
    3x-2+y=i(x-3y+1)

    3x-2+y=0 equation 1
    x-3y+1=0 so, x=3y-1 equation2

    sub 2 into 1
    3(3y-1)-2+y=0
    9y-3-2+y=0
    y=0.5

    sub y=0.5 into equation 1,
    3x-2+0.5=0
    3x=1.5
    x=0.5

    and then z=0.5x+0.5iy?

    You don't need to look at real and imaginary parts. We have

    3z - i = 2 + iz
    z(3 - i) = 2 + i
    z = (2 + i)/(3 - i)

    Now to get this into the form a+bi multiply the top and bottom by the complex conjugate of the denominator, namely 3+i. We do this because z multiplied by it's conjugate is |z|^2, which is real. So we get

    z = [(2 + i)(3 + i)]/(3^2 + 1^2) = (6 + 2i + 3i - 1)/10 = (1+i)/2

    Yup you can do it this way aswell, I just prefer to do it the other way, just a matter of preference

    Ahh...makes sense... Thanks
