    ok thanks. is anyone using CASIO? i'm using them since year 7 so i would probably mess up with sharps. what's the best CASIO?

    i think ive mastered P1 except for a few topics.
    can someone tell me whether these are hard or its caus i'm missing the obvious.

    Algebra-completing the square,inequalities

    Trig-solving harder problems eg sin^2(x+pi/6)=1/2 for -pi<x<pi

    Coordinate Geometry-how to get coordinates eg when two equations are given

    Diffrentiation-max min practical problems,decreasing/increasing functions

    i know its quite a bit but if i can get the correct principles i know i can do well in the exam. thanks! ps rep will be given around 30 points

    Trig-solving harder problems eg sin^2(x+pi/6)=1/2 for -pi<x<pi
    answer is -3pi/4, pi/4 and 3pi/4 right?

    Trig-solving harder problems eg sin^2(x+pi/6)=1/2 for pi<x<pi
    this is how i would do something like this:

    sin(x + pi/6) = 1/√2

    x + pi/6 = pi/4

    draw CAST diagram
    to make it easier, look at the equation in degrees: x+30 = 45
    so mark lines at 30 and 150 degrees

    x+30 = 45 , 135
    x = 15 , 105

    now change back to radians:

    x = pi/12 , 7pi/12

    i know this is a bit of a dumb question since you've posted so much on this thread, but have you looked through mik1a's notes at the beginnning on all the topics you're having trouble with. if so, then post any questions you're having difficulty with and i'll help

    well it did say -pi<x<pi so it is

    yeah i know....but if you substitute it back into the original equation, you don't get 0.5

    sorry should have made it a bit clearer....i square rooted each side, to get sin(x + pi/6) on the LHS, and √(1/2) on the RHS = 1/√2

    I don't see it here... :confused:

    List (bottom of page)

    But it says you can use ANY sharp EL-520, and the 520VA has integration and differentiation! so why can we use it????

    and do these have the quadratic formula as well??? i'm relly confused...
