how do you factorise this?

Attachment 226175
i know that there is the difference of two squares for quadratics, but what about cubics? is there a rule?

do we have to go through the long process of polynomial div?
2. do we need to know the factor formulas?
3. how do you sketch (x^2+1)/(x^2-1)

and work out domain/range of f^-1(x)

Pretty sure the only thing we have to remember is completing the square/difference of two squares.

And I'm guessing the source of that is the edexcel website.

Yes, there's a replacement paper but this doesn't mean it will be harder. As edexcel have said, the replacement papers have gone through the same processes as the originals, and are no harder/easier than the original papers.

So there really isn't anything to worry about.

Edit:

And if you don't believe edexcel, and still think they'll give a harder paper, the FP1 replacement paper was done on Monday, and most candidates found it (fairly) easy. So I doubt they'll screw you guys over

Good luck!
You didn't sit the M2 replacement one then! It wasn't very nice at all :-/

The papers have always been produced in sets of 2 as a minimum per examination date, the reason they had to replace the papers was because of a suspected breach into their database, and it's good they did replace the papers, because there was a chance that some candidates had access to the papers. The replacements papers are produced by the Same examiner as the normal paper, so the difficulty is what you'll be getting either way. So don't worry : D! good luck : ) Can't wait to get this exam out the way and begin studying for my horrendous biology exam ): !

Biol5 is like the cold virus, screws your head over (dry dull sensation in the head) the second it's over you're cured of the cold, and you feel so much better. I can't wait to finish that **** exam!

exactly
14. I don't know why...

... but I find it odd that for f(|x|) you have to reflect everything onto the left side of the y axis

when the x values there are negative, I never knew this in Jan lol
