    How would you do part c? I have done parts a and b but can't seem to find the area - the co-ordinates of Q are (27,-18)
    SKETCH! It'll be obvious once you do.

    Not sure what the problem is... split it up, sum the parts and get an equation:

    k sum 2^r = number

    remember geometric series...
    Yep - silly me.

    Guys i have no idea what is going on here. THis is from the Jan 2016 IAL paper, do we need to know this as i dont know what to do. I got part (a) (i) but not the rest. Please help!!!!

    The quadratic equationx2 – 2x + 3 = 0 has roots Į and ȕ.Without solving the equation, (a) (i) write down the value of (Į + ȕ) and the value of Įȕ (ii) show that Į2 + ȕ2 (iii) find the value of Į3 (b) (i) show that Į4 + ȕ4 (ii) find a quadratic equation which has roots = –2 + ȕ3 = (Į2 + ȕ2)2 – 2(Į ȕ)2 (5) – ȕ) and ( ȕ3(Į3 – Į) giving your answer in the form px2 + qx + r = 0 where p, q and r are integers.

    No. It's not on the UK spec.

    It was really difficult for an area of a triangle question...

    Maybe kingaaran will help us!

    I don't follow the geometric series part.

    Sum of a geometric series is a(1-r^n)/1-r

    In this case the mark scheme

    says that a is 2, but to me it is quite clearly one?

    sum frm r=1 to 12 of 2^r = 2^1 + 2^2 + 2^3 + ...

    first term is 2^1 = 2.
