I want to help you achieve amazing GCSE results!

You might be better off going through this type of question with a tutor in a tutoring session. Only because it’s a long question with so many steps and if you want to learn how to do this type of question it will take a long explanation to show you how to do it. If your interested in learning how to do them let me know :)

For what values of b is (x-b) a factor of 3x^3 +(b+3)x^2 -(4b^2 +b-7)x-4?

Let f(x) = 3x^3 + (b+3)x^2 - (4b^2+b-7)x-4 Then (x-b) is a factor of f(x) if and only if f(b)=0, because if (x-b) is a factor of f(x) then we can wr...

Write the equation of the line in the form Y=MX+C. (-2,3) and (-1,4)?

How do we solve this? We can just plug the co-ordinates into the equation: yΒ²-yΒΉ = m(xΒ²-xΒΉ) + c So substituting gives us: (4 - 3) = m (-1 - -2) + c ...
