    Expand (1+rootx)^3
    The mrk scheme was such that instead, for exmple rootx times rootx being x, it was rootx^2, which i dont really get. If anyone could help me out i would really appreciate it.
    Sorry for the awful spelling, im on a partialy broken tablet.

    That is a bit weird but I'm sure if you just had x that would be accepted.

    What was the answer shown on the mark scheme? Was it something like 1 + 3x + 3x^2 + x^3 as I don't quite understand.

    It is a bit unusual though.

    Mark scheme answer was rootx^3 + 3rootx^2 + 3rootx +1

    You're talking about the 2014 C2 AQA paper? If yes, you use the answer from previous question as it says "hence" and so the answer will be 1 + 3rootx + 3x + rootx^3

    it is 3x as 3(rootx)^2 is rootx times by rootx so it becomes x

    Ah, I see. They kept the roots in the answer. Yea, I don't understand why they kept them.
