    What topics do you think will come up for each page of the data sheet for calculus?

    Hello, how did you feel the Calculus paper went? I found it a good paper. I am resitting Algebra from AS tomorrow and I'm so worried. Last year our college studied Algebra (standard), Data and Decision. I got 2 A's on Data and Decision but a U on Algebra. Worried that tomorrow will head in the same direction. Can't seem to crack completing the square, theres a full question on parabolas too so I know it will come up.

    Hi, I am not retaking Algebra,
    But for completing the square, half the number before the X and then - the square out side the bracket.
    So X^2 + 8X + 4
    Will be
    (X + 4)^2 -16 + 4
    = (X + 4)^2 -12
    Hope it helps
