    Is it mathematically acceptable to show that 2x+a+b>=0 by adding x+b>0 and x+a>=0

    What is the name of the coding language that you TSR mathematicians use to express mathematical expressions/equations in the italic font. I believe you guys also use it to express ">=" "<=" and other mathematical symbols/operations.

    Yes, of course.
    The first part of question 1 was quite easy. It's just that I didn't know which of the results to use to obtain the answer to part i) and ii) ; I assumed b=1 so thought that arcsin(x+a/x+b) was the result I needed. What logical steps could I have taken to ensure that I was using the correct result?

    I wouldn't have recognised that the constant +- 1/√2 was needed in either results.

    Haha thanks for the comforting words. It's just that I've never found the sum of >= and > inequalities.

    What A levels are you doing? You want to do a Maths degree?
