    Those roots of polynomials and alpha, beta stuff you see in IAL F1 papers aren't on the normal FP1 edexcel papers, that's about it.
    Ah, should i just skip those questions then?

    How you state it using set theory is  \forall n, n \in \mathbb{Z}^+ .

    This reads as "for all n where n is an element of  \mathbb{Z}^+ ".
    Thanks - so I should say 'all n and nEZ+' ?

    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:

     P^3x^2 + c(1-p^4)x -c^2p =0

    For part (b)  C(-2a,\frac{-2ar}{q-a}), so why do you have to use \frac{2ar}{q-a} as the vertical distance of OCS? How would you know if \frac{-2ar}{q-a} is positive or negative?

    I assume you treat it like a quadractic in the form: ax^(2) + bx + C, then either factorise as a quadractic or use the formul
