    Hi, I was doing question 10 of the June 2012 FP1 paper. I was wondering if there is a logical way to know how to do that particular question? Mostly because on line 5 of the working in the mark scheme, they suddenly change 1 to (-1 +2). How would you know to do that?
    Thanks in advance!

    No, not really. It just comes with practice and knowing where you want to go

    Ads you practice, tricks like -1 = 1-2 etc come to mind because you know where you are headed. It is like driving into a chicane on a road you know well, you set your bike into the right road position well ahead of the first curve.
