    In FP2 (Edexcel), is it essential to know or to use the analytical method rather than the graphical?

    Using the graphical one, personally, is quicker and easier to understand the question.
    So, will they ask you to use a certain method to solve the ineq in the exam?

    Mix of both to be honest, there are cases when the analytical method is the easiest to bash out and others where the graphical one is the best. Depends on the inequality in question, which is why it's good for you to be familiar with both so that you can confidently attack any question with a wide range of tools and techniques that will allow you to attack the problem in the most efficient way.
