How you state it using set theory is .

This reads as "for all n where n is an element of ".
Thanks - so I should say 'all n and nEZ+' ?
13. How do you factorise three term quadratics with three variables. I had to find the intercept of a normal at a point with a hyperbola, I got the 3TQ right, but I couldn't factorise it by sight, it was:
