    When I did that paper I found Q4 a walk in the part but I didn't understand Q3.

    Complex numbers are my weakness.
    They are mine as well, but that question had very little to do with complex numbers and was just understanding their given definitions.

    BTW, you never replied to my post yesterday about III 2005?

    Maybe ill give that question another go later.

    And yeah your solution was correct, for some reason I didn't think about simplifying into  u and  \dfrac{d}{u} .

    Thanks for the help!

    Omg your story is really interesting... 7A* and 1A is perfect - even here in the Middle East
    Now that you teach yourself, do you learn everything out of your textbooks, by watching videos or..?

    Mainly by watching videos, but honestly, just do maths - that's how you learn.

    Talking about doing maths, please would you look over my solution to a Putnam question later?

    oh haha well I thought it was strange they required you to know about Cayley-Hamilton theorem (atleast I needed it for my solution, perhaps missed an easier way)
