    Not sure if this is a GCSE type question, and it is certainly harder than I expect of GCSE. But yeah I've been having some trouble with this question. Can anybody give me a 'first-step'?

    Wow! Thank you so much! I wish I could rep but I'm on mobile atm :/

    I tend to need some more practice with these types of exam questions, ones that need in depth thinking.

    Nevertheless I'm sort of amazed that schools expect students to work this out in an exam situation...
