# question about edexcel c2. watch

1. for example, if you had a question where you have to find the co-ordinates of a point (e.g stationary point), use calculus and use the quadratic formula (because i'm lazy when it comes to factoring, only when a question doesn't ask you to factorise) do you get all the marks? like on the markscheme, it doesn't show anything about using the quadratic formula even though i got the right answers.

Correct solutions I believe attain the marks, regardless of the method (provided there is one)

Thanks!
5. Can you give an example of where you have used the quadratic formula to find a stationary point?
6. Ugh. C2 -.-
